Default LZ Report Draft Show....

I'm sorry to use this forum to promote my show, but I wanted to make sure you guys knew about it so that you wouldn't miss the first airing tonight since you guys are interested in the draft.

The show is the "Z Report Draft Show" and it is on 1560 AM from 6 to 7 PM every Thursday starting tonight.

If you have any issues with hearing it over the air, we will also stream it at 1560thegame.com. All you have to do is click "Listen Live".

If you want to stream in on your phone (provided you have Windows Media Player), you can click here: http://wmc2.liquidcompass.cc/KGOW

The first two or three shows will be taped, but the ones after that will be live and we will be taking calls and emails so I'm hoping you guys will be interested in listening and participating whether you live in Houston or not.

Today's Topics:

- Area (Texas) Draft Prospects
- QB Ratings
- Players who might be most effected by the combine
- Texans Needs
- Recent Franchise Tags


I've taken up enough space so thanks for your consideration. Now back to discussing Jonathan Stewart and "ZBS".

Lance, thanks for coming to our little corner of the internet.

Please feel free to stop by when ever, and thanks for answering all of our questions in Chron's draft chat earlier this week.

Limas Sweed - WR - UT (mid 2nd)
Martellus Bennett - TE - A&M (late 2nd)
Frank Okam - DT - UT (3rd)
Red Bryant - DT - A&M (3rd)

The top Texas HS players in the draft are Kansas CB Aqib Talib and OU WR Malcolm Kelly, both probable mid 1st round picks.

I would probably disagree on Okam and Bryant going in the top 3 rounds, but with their size, you never know. If Sweed runs well, he'll go in the 1st. Jermichael Finley is a wild-card in this draft because some teams hate him and some like him. I've heard he's not as athletic as everyone expects so I'm interested to see where his numbers end up this week.

Welcome to the board LZ. Will make sure to tune in. Anyway, I thought Martellus Bennett was a sure fire first rounder.

You have to be a pretty special tight end to go in the first. He'll probably be in the 2nd and no later than the 3rd.

Finley is a physical freak. He will wreck shop at the combine.

Just dont put a blocking dummy in front of him. That's where teams will be scared off.

Am I in the minority in thinking that Martel Van Zant will be drafted late on day 2?

I'm thinking that I am, but since we're talking about players with Texas roots I thought I'd bring him up.

No Tony Hills in the first 3 rounds.

I think it must depend on how he's recovering from his fractured fibula he suffered 3 months ago.

He was 6'5 / 315 today so I'm sure teams are very happy to see that he's been able to keep his weight in check since he is one of the better athletes at tackle in this draft with that kind of size.

He's not participating in the combine (just the weigh-in) so I think that hurts him.

He is only gonna run at the UT Pro Day.

The kid is a player, that's for sure.

But the fact that he is deaf is gonna scare some teams off. Whether it should, is debatable, but it will.

At least he is honest.

Quote:
Asked about his blocking ability, Texas tight end Jermichael Finley impressed with his honesty. "It's not good at all," he said, "but I'm going to work my butt off to make it great."
