I can almost assure you someone from the Texans staff will be there, along with at least a scout or something from every other team. They are football scouts. It's what they do.
I don't know if it is open to the public. Even if it were, football practice is an incredibly tedious and boring event. Imagine flag football, with less contact. Good place to take a nap though.

I doubt anyone from the Houston Texans would spend the energy and time to travel that far.

I don't think it's open to the public. I recall hearing that on 610 or 790 a few days ago. I'm sure the Texans will attend.

The paper said it was open this morning.

...lots of free agent/camp guys in the pile at U of H. Just lost our FB. I saw Battle, unless I've got the wrong guy destroy, Baytown Lee a few seasons ago. He's too heavy right now...but for the price of room and board you get a cheap look see in camp. I disagree, I think the scouts will be there unless they are scattered about to far to get there.

Did anybody go or heard anything about the Pro day at UH?

Just wanted to know how Kolb and the rest of the Cougars did.

Thanks

From Lance Zierlein's blog
Quote:
UH Pro Day

I don't have all the exact details on every player but I spoke with some of the people who attended the event and work for NFL teams and they said that almost everyone had a good workout with just a couple of exceptions.

* Kevin Kolb threw the ball well and showed his NFL arm strength as he was able to cut it loose in his passing drills. Jerry Rhome took him through the paces and Kolb did what he needed to do for the NFL teams in attendance.

* Jackie Battle was the star of the show. The Cougars ran on an artificial turf and the times I received on Battle from an NFL source who timed him was 4.46 and 4.40. The source said that his team averages the time and adds .10 for the surface so he is posting it as a 4.53 which was "very, very surprising". Nobody expected Battle to run that fast and I don't think anyone expected his 41" vertical leap either.

* Vincent Marshall ran in the 4.3s and that was AFTER THE SURFACE ADJUSTMENT! The only problem for Marshall is his size. His lack of size will probably keep him from being drafted.

* WR Biron Ealy ran in the 4.5s which became a 4.6 with time adjustment. Still, that was not at all disappointing to the teams in attendance and two scouts who I know are already trying to position themselves as the front runner to add Ealy as a free agent if he isn't drafted. Teams like Ealy's potential and they are fine with his speed after today.

* Will Gulley didn't run well (4.7) but there are some teams who are considering moving him to OLB in the 3-4 defense.

It is clear that track coach Leroy Burrell and strength coach Larry Jackson have done a terrific job of getting the Cougars ready not only for this pro day, but also for the upcoming season. The hiring of Larry Jackson before last offseason was one of the best moves UH could have made for the football program.

That is actually an EXCELLENT point. It's a lot like WR Anderson pick late last year. Except as a U of H fan, I've grown to REALLY appreciate how excellent of a route runner Marshall is...and for being smaller...he can still get excellent seperation. OH....and fly-paper for hands never hurts.

Marshall is like former Texans return man J.J. Moses...with breakaway speed. He'll find a spot in the NFL.

I wonder what Battle weighed in at. That's a very fast time for a FB prospect.
