I'm interested in Aaron Maybin and Everette Brown's weigh in numbers. Supposedly Brown has been losing some weight. I'm not one to think that these guys weights are the end all be all... but I do think it plays as a factor. Getting lighter isn't going to help their case to be picked as a 4-3 DE.

Its out there because I ran across a "weigh-in" # of 335 for 'Bamas Smith on a Rams message Board, but I dunno where the source is / So far I don't think NFL.Com has posted this info ?

Figured it might be time to start one. Feel free to post any and all news items, rumors, tid bits about who the Texans are watching, seen interested in, or are following here.

INDIANAPOLIS -- LSU guard Herman "House" Johnson showed up at the NFL Scouting Combine at a relatively svelte 364 pounds, considerably less than from his collegiate playing days in Baton Rouge.

Johnson interviewed with several teams on Wednesday night, among them the Rams, Dolphins, Texans, Jaguars and Bills. He said some teams have spoken to him about playing right tackle, but most are interested in keeping him at guard.
I don't see how he fits in with what we are doing on the line, but it sounds like we did talk to him.

Haha, not a bad idea!

I think Johnson has potential to be a really really good guard. I don't know that he would fit on this team though. If he ends up in the right blocking system he could be great as a RG.

He needs to lose another 30-35 lbs. and work on his conditioning and footwork, but right now I think he's a probably a 3rd round pick at best.

I found an article, DT Vaughn Martin from Western Ontario. 6'3" 328 pounds, but the article says he only had 20.5 tackles and 1.5 sacks...

Praise from Mayock for Steve Slaton. Said his performance in the off tackle drill elevated him 2 rounds in Mayocks mind.

The coach is supposed to lean the bag one way or the other, and the RB has to respond by cutting and accelerating around the cone in the opposite way the coach tipped the bag.

He said something along the lines of Slaton having the best vision, cut, and acceleration when it came time to face off vs. the coach.

NFL | Byrd has talked to several teams at combine
Fri, 20 Feb 2009 12:34:50 -0800

Louisiana State WR Demetrius Byrd said among the teams he has talked to at the NFL Scouting Combine are the Green Bay Packers, the Cleveland Browns, the Indianapolis Colts, the Houston Texans, the Miami Dolphins, the Cincinnati Bengals, the Dallas Cowboys and the Detroit Lions.

http://kffl.com



Basic info- He's 6'0" 200 lbs and is generally considered a mid to late-rounder in the draft.

Don't know about returns but here's some more info:

Quote:
Byrd signed with LSU as one of the elite JUCO prospects in the country. He led the team with seven touchdown receptions in his first season, six of which came against elite SEC competition. But Byrd's senior season was a bit disappointing, as he failed to step up in the primary receiver role (37 receptions for 499 yards and four touchdowns). His value appears to be as a complementary receiver at the next level. Had an arm span of 33 3/8 inches and a hand span of 9 inches at the combine.
