Default This is where Rick Smith shines - UDA's

If you haven't had a chance to see the list of UDA's check it out.... http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/4761678.html

JZ grabs the headline, but look for 2 players on this list to make our final roster.

1.) Enoka Lucas - Strong, athletic and smart. Much more so than Drew Hodgdon. He makes the roster this year as a backup possibly making Flanagan expendable.

2.) John Abatte - Look up football player on Wikipedia and there is a picture of this guy. Not really, but all the intangibles are there. He should make the roster as a replacement for Troy Evans. Will be a special teams stalwort for years to come.

JZ, Onrea Jones and Brandon Mitchell have a good chance at making the practice squad.


This is the area where Rick Smith and his staff are going to shine and build the core of this team.

OH man..... I love Zabransky.

Someone explain to me how this practice squad thing works again.... If we put Zabransky on the practice squad, would other teams be able to sign him??

I'm not ready to have a Schaub, Rosenfels, & Zabransky as our depth... I'd rather hold onto Van Pelt for another year at least.

Now Plummer, Sage & Zabransky, I could have gone for that.

It would be better for us, if we don't see Lucas at all this year. If he's as you say he is, then Kubiak will take his time with him on the practice squad this year, ease him into the line-up next year, and he'll anchor the position for 10 years to come.

brandon mitchell has a decent shot at being a backup FS at least....

plus the punter looks to have a decent shot also

and TK- yeah other teams could sign him but they'd have to give him a 53 man roster place

Can't you send a player to NFL Europe and retain his rights?

TK! Glad to see you finally made over here man... I left you a PM on the HT boards because I hadn't seen you here, and didn't know if you knew what was going on here.
I left PMs for 7 people, and in the last 5 days none of them has even been read... man the PM system on the software is horrible.

(*edit* I just went and looked at my outgoing PMs on the other board and saw that the one I sent you had been viewed once. Did you read it?)

To answer your question about the practice squad, another team can sign one of our PS guys, but they have to put him on their active roster, and if I'm not mistaken, they must keep him on it for the entire year.

Two years ago, the Jaguars tried to sign Kenneth Pettway from our practice squad and he denied the opportunity. We did play him eventually, though I'm sure he's long gone.

lol guess where he plays now . . .

Anyways, Im a big fan of Cory Anderson getting picked up as a UDFA. This guy is a powerful blocker and can catch out of the backfield. The complaint about him is that he isn't much of a runner. In other words, he fits our mold at FB perfectly.

They do have to put the player on the 53 man roster. But, he is only guaranteed 3 weeks on the roster. If released after the 3 weeks, the player is on waivers. Once cleared, he can choose to sign with any team's practice squad.

I agree that this is a fantastic group of undrafted free agents. Zabransky is a good fit for this offense. And he'll be running the scout team offense, which will help simulate the faster QBs the Texans will face this season. Deljuan Robinson is actually a 295 lb DT, who had open heart surgery before entering college. Really stepped up his game as a senior with 12.5 TFL. Derrick Roberson put up some freakish numbers in postseason workouts, and could push for a roster spot if he excels on special teams during the preseason.

Just noticed this about Wilbur, the Punter we're bringing in for a tryout:

Quote:
Became the first punter in school history to be named a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award…Named to the Sporting News All-Freshman Team and was chosen as the Rivals.com Freshman All-American in 2004…Named to the SEC All-Freshman Team in 2004 (Coaches)…Named to the Knoxville-News Sentinel All-Freshman Team in 2004…Named to the 2005 SEC Coaches' Second Team Preseason All-SEC Team…

CAREER: Has seen action in 35 games…Reached over 5,000 career-yards punting in the Peach Bowl against Miami…

I want Wilbur to win the punting job for 2 reasons. One, Stanley has been a terrible punter the last two seasons. Two, I want to be able to yell "Willlllllburrrrrrr" everytime the punt team come out. Big Mr. Ed fan.

Roberson and/or Jones and/or Richardson could all become the special teams stand-outs, esp. at gunner, some of us hoped Kendrik Starling would become.

DeGrate played OLB for two years, before moving to DE at Oklahoma State. Guy might have a little something when it comes to rushing the QB.

Mitchell reminds me alot of John Walker, low experience, good size, good numbers and practice squad material this year.

LOL!

I like Stanley (loyalty), but the best man wins the job.
If Wilbur has a good showing, I will have to say sorry to Chad.

What do you all think about signing Gary Russell? HE was out of shape, but put him on the practice squad for a season, and then maybe to Europa and I think he could be pretty special.

Maybe but when he had a chance, and showed up to his private session before UT's pro day fat and out-of-shpe it shows that there are reasons to still be concerned.
