Default Marcus McCauley

Marcus might be the one to bolster the weak Texans secondary via the draft. He is 6' 1" 205 big and strong for a cover corner with blazing NFL quality speed (timed earlier in the offseason during a NFL training day @ 4.31). Teams throw away from him (I can buy the same arguement with Landry) so his stats do not refelct his value to the Fresno State Bulldogs.

Their next game is Saturday against Louisiana Tech in Ruston, La. not sure if its televised or if someone who posts here on this board will attend the game. but I sure hope the Texans send a scout his way to evaluate his potential and bring him out to Relient for a personel workout before the draft.

McCauley was rated as the #1 CB by a lot of people in the pre-season but he has been beaten pretty bad this year.

Teams started the year by just staying away from him but now he is just another CB.

Probably not even a 1st round pick anymore unless a team weights his 40-time too heavily.

He has looked really bad in actual gameplay this year. He is an amazing physical talent, but has not showed that on the field this year at all.

That entire team has looked bad this year. Must be something in the water.

That said, McCauley's upside remains huge - you can't teach 4.31 speed - and his performance this year (along with the rest of the underachieving Bulldogs) should drop him in the draft so he could be a steal.

He's still not the best player coming out for Fresno State; that honor goes to Kyle Young, a monstrous center who plays meaner'n Logan Mankins did. Whoever gets him gets a fixture for 12 years.

Other players from Fresno State who might be worth looking into come the 2007 draft:

Dwayne Wright, RB
Paul Williams, WR
Joe Fernandez, WR

...and that's about it. A very disappointing season for Fresno State Bulldogs fans.

Yeah, I've had an interest in their Center since last season, and I agree on his talent. I wouldn't mind both of them in the second and third round respectivly.

See, I thought about that, but I believe Winston should be our LT and Spence our RG at this point. While I would love Joe Thomas or Gaither, we DESPERATLY need secondary help. I want both things and a top OLB.

I think Winston is going to stay at RT and do well with Spencer reclaiming his LT spot. We probably need a center and maybe a RG, depending on Weary. That leaves us with needs at FS, CB and OLB. I would love for us to sign either Ken Hamlin or Asante Samuel in FA, then draft to the position we didnt get in FA and a linebacker. Then pick up some depth for the O-line and maybe running back in the later rounds.

The scouting reports I have read on him say he moves like he has his feet stuck in cement. He does not appear to move very well which points to him not being a target for the Texans OL.

I would look a Datish from Ohio St. He plays against better defenses and has been a leader on a successful team. He 295 and can move, has played 3 positions for the Buckeyes OL.

Datish is almost certainly a late 1st round pick but he would be a reach at our draft spot (unless we get on a roll & win some games).

If he is there for us in the 2nd then I would not complain with the pick.

That was posted before the season started I believe.

His physical talent is unquestionable but he just isnt playing well this year.

it's a preseason analysis, and when he says "he's battling to be a top 10 pick" that means he has to play well and stand out to earn that pick. that clearly isn't the case.

Thehuddlereport has him ranked #113. That is a mid 3rd rounder. Not saying that is the final word, but show me a list that has him as a 1st rounder?

Pre-season rankings have him listed as the #1 CB.

His performance this year has turned many people off of that idea.
