Well the Texans have already taken him off their draft board. After all, he played for the Longhorns. Not a chance in hell he wears a Texans uni.

"UT is a wonderful place and everyone has been so good to me. But, playing in the NFL has always been my dream and when the NFL report came back, I was happy with the grade and felt like it was best for me to enter the draft," Charles said in a statement.
A week ago, Charles said he wouldn't jump unless he received a 1st round grade. Guess that's what he got.

I'd like to have him as a 3rd down back or a change of pace back .

This does surprise me. His size and stats are right there with other RBs projected in first round.http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/player...layerId=175766

I like his speed a lot and think he could definitely help the Texans rushing attack, but he'd have to show rapid improvement in his pass blocking and the ability to hold on to the football before he'd crack the starting lineup.

Selvin Young went undrafted last year. I'll be interested in seeing how high Charles' stock goes in late April. He'd make a good fourth round pick IMO.

Default Re: Jamaal Charles going Pro

This'll sound crazy coming from a Longhorn, but I'm not all that interested.

I've probably seen every college game that he's played in and I always thought he was overrated. He fumbles too much, he gets hurt too much, and he can't run between the tackles.

I'm a little more partial to Chris Ogbannaya myself anyway.

Whether we like it or not, "Ronnie" isn't going anywhere for the mere reason that he can hang onto the rock. The best that we can hope for is an RB that brings some speed and elusiveness to the table. There should be plenty of those left in the 3rd round.

The Texans need an LT in the first round. period. I don't care which skill player comes out or where he went to school.

I can see Charles going early to mid second. I can also see him being a back that shares the backfield but gets the majority of the carries.

This guy has speed, real speed. He won the Big 12 100 meter event in the last year or 2 with what, a 10.2 or 10.3 time ?
But is that all we are talking about here, a real fast guy, a track guy, and
nothing more ?

I would love to trade out 18th pick down for a later first and a second and draft a OT/S with one of those picks and then Charles with the other than go into the third round with 2 of the three big need positions filled

Wouldn't surprise me. Bud obviously regrets leaving Texas so to make up for that he just drafts every player coming out of UT. BTW, he can have him. This guy fumbles way too much and at the worst times.

I don't see why he wouldn't be considered. I mean look at what Selvin Young, who went undrafted, did. Charles has more skill than SY and is 6'1, 205. SY is listed at 5'11, 207. My problem would be the fumbles.

Selvin's success with the Broncos will work to Jamaal's favor. And the NFL loves stopwatch speed, and Charles should be among the fastest at the combine.
