The concerns are that he sin't in teh shape he needs to be, and add that to his size, he dosn't have great stamina. The more troubling is that he has the handle of an underachiever.

Just someone to keep an eye out on at the combine.
I watched him in the bowl game and he was blocked by the Bowling Green center one on one most of the game. I as not impressed with him in that game. He did not clug anything nor command the attention of multiple linemen. Does he have size and potential yes, but he has not done anything special as football player, no

Change the name of the opposing team, and I can say the same about nearly all the DT in this year's draft.

Mean's is on of the few with the size and potential who may becoming something. Is he a lock? Hell no. Is he worth a thrid or fourth round pick? Maybe. He'd definitly somebody to keep an eye on.

With such a diverse group of talent to choose from several others got mentions for certain attributes of their game, such as the athleticism of Auburn's Jay Ratliff, size and better-than-advertised quickness of Memphis' Albert Means and pass rush potential shown by Minnesota's Darrell Reid.

I kind of like Luis Castillo out of Northwestern. If I remember correctly he played much of this year hurt, and he essientially caused havoc while playing with one arm. I think he tore a tendon or a muscle in his other arm. If he drops down to a second day pick he might be a nice pick up in the later rounds.

The thing about us and Marcus Spears' injury is that since our team is barely getting over injured players and stuff like that, I am not sure we are going to want to invest in a player with an injury that high.

3rd or 4th round i tend to like guys who were productive and have something wrong, (too slow, too short, injury). The guys who have not produced with the physical goods are generally hit or miss so later is better like 5th or later. Means is in that 2nd category imo.

*Texas DTs Rodrique Wright and Larry Dibbles are both announcing their intentions to enter the draft today. Rumors have Wright leaving while Dibbles hasn't given much of a lean. Wright received a mid-1st Round grade from the advisory committee.

CJ Mosley, DT Missiouri, has decided to enter the draft. Proves a nice little boost to the DT talent.

It's still weak though.

I like Castillo a lot. He is a bit of a sleeper right now, projected for the third round. Depending on his combine workout, he may really rise in the ranking. I've read three scouting reports on him and none of them report any weakness of consequence. He needs to add a little weight and strength and refine his technique. He occassionally comes out too high and needs to keep his pads down. That's it for the negative. On the positive side, he's quick, very strong and always gives 100% with a great work ethic. He's played on a team that hasn't been very good recently so his numbers don't impress as much as the better known players, but he's had 251 career tackles, with 19.5 TFL and 4.5 sacks. He may not be a dominant pass rusher, but that's not the responsibility of a DLman in Caper's scheme and he's perfect to groom behind Walker and Smith. Pro Football Weekly says he has "really impressed the scouts" and "as a football player he does not leave much to be desired".

So, today I've been toying with the idea of trading our #13 pick for a 1st round pick in 2006 and a #2 this year.

With our two number 2's we go after Castillo and OG David Baas.

I'm predicting that Haloti Ngata is going to develope into an elite top 15 pick next year and I'd sure like the Texans to go after him. He's the prototypical NT but I like him as DE on the same side as Babin.

Here are the career statistics for six defensive tackles. This is for three years - 2004 stats are generally unavailable.

PLAYER............TACKLES.....TFL.......SACKS

Cody...................85..........18.5........11
Spears................103.........17.5........10
Johnson...............117.........21.5.........?
Hawthorne............159........31............6
Mosley.................169.........38..........15. 5
Castillo.................176.........11..........2 .5


Mosley really stands out.
And Castillo, playing in the Big Ten, is an elite run defender.

Is this scenario possible? Trade down to maybe 18-20th and get Rolle (some projections say he may fall that far but I'm not sure). We pick up a 2nd giving us two 2's & two 3's. Then we offer some combination to move back into 1st round to get Mosley? Maybe just a fantasy but who would have thought Texans would end up with 3 rookie starters last year?

Rolle will be the 1st CB off the board. Look for him to go top 10. I bet 2 CB's are gone before the 18th pick.
