Default Guys you'd like to see the Texans pick up in the 7th round or as undrafted FAs

The seventh round pick I think is for taking chances on guys who the experts think have little pro potential, but are worth a shot anyway. Some great players weren't even drafted and ended up being stars, like Kurt Warner, Jake Delhomme, Antonio Gates, and Priest Holmes.

Are there any graduating players that you know of, that you would like to take a chance on in the seventh round or pick up after the draft if nobody takes them? I don't think there are any right or wrong answers here. Just some guys that you like.

I have a few.

Drew Olson, QB, UCLA - I'm not a draft expert, but this guy threw 34 TDs and only 6 INTs last year. That alone I think makes him worth a peek. He should've been a Heisman candidate in my opinion, and I think he's got great leadership ability. He headed a lot of dramatic comeback wins for UCLA.

Bruce Eugene, QB, Grambling - I don't know if anyone saw this guy, but he is a BIG GUY. He's a QB, but he's like 280 pounds. Despite that, somehow he's actually pretty mobile, a great leader, and he broke a ton of passing records at Grambling. He has experience. He's just a bit raw for pro offenses and really fat.

Domata Peko, DT, Michigan State - Another big dude. This guy was a great run-stuffer at Michigan State. I don't know if anyone remembers, but last year, he returned a fumble about 80 yards for a TD. What makes it memorable is that he weighs at least 300 pounds and still managed to waddle all the way down the field.

Jai Lewis, George Mason - There's just something magical about those George Mason basketball players. He thinks his ability on the court can translate to the NFL, and maybe it will, maybe it won't. He could be a TE or a LB.


Of course none of these guys are probably great enough to take chances on with good picks, but at the end of the draft? Yeah, why not?

I have a lot of guys i'd like to see here, all of them pretty much unheard of. Small school guys that did really well at their level. I'll post 2 or 3 later.

I like Willie, and I'd love to see a Baylor Bear on the Texans, but I think he'll be gone before the 7th. He was pretty impressive at the combine. I believe he ran in the 4.3's. I think he could go as early as the 4th Round, but it's more likely that he goes off the board in the 5th or 6th.

Some mock drafts have Vince Young dropping all the way to the 7th. I'd still pass on him though and take a couple of cheerleaders from any University in Florida.

Barrick Nealy or Bruce Eugene would both make me really happy

First of all, if Nealy is there, we better pick him. That would make my weekend.

Some other 7th rounders include:
1) AJ Schable, DE South Dakota- 6'3" 285lbs- Led D2 in sacks and TFL. Pretty fast for a DE with a 4.74 40. Strong, did 31 bench reps. And fairly quick with a 4.27 short shuttle.

2) Allante Harrison, CB Towson State- 5'10" 175lbs- Really fast with a 4.37 40 Great hands for the interception.

Here are some Undrafted Free Agents:
1) Devin Conwell, S/LB Ashland- 6'2 220lbs- Played Monsterback his final year of college, but played LB his previous 3 years. Good speed (4.6 40).

2)Wyatt Gayer, LB Anderson- 6'2" 250lbs- Has played DE, OLB and ILB in college. Strong(28 bench reps) with decent speed(4.64 40)

3) Kevin Culbert, DE/LB, Frostburg Sate- 6'5" 235lbs- In myt opinion the most interesting of this list. Led D3 in sacks and TFL. Decent speed (4.67 40) and very agile for his size (6.75 3 cone). Needs to put on more weight to play DE.

Frostburg State, eh? Interesting. Are there any other players from D3 who made it in the NFL?
