So much for Wesley Britt. He was carted off of the field a little while ago with an injury. Maybe we can get him late in the draft now....

I hear you on Patterson. Looking back, players like Gilbert Brown, Sam Adams, and the like were taken later in the draft. Hawthorne, Cody, and those guys don't play the nose tackle position. They play the positions that G. Walker and R. Smith play. Those guys are good players and would be much more effective if we had a really big, physical presence in the middle of the line who can man handle inside blockers to free up Walker and Smith.

I'm watching the telecast too. I like Ced Houston. I think he would make a great back here.

I like what I've seen of Matt Jones as a TE/WR. He has great hands.

Greuden on individuals he is impressed with and other tidbits in this newsy
story from the local Mobil paper re the Senior Bowl.
From the article, remarks about a Sooner LB who could be another prospect
for the Texans:
-- NEW ROLE FOR OU'S MITCHELL: Lance Mitchell earned All-Big 12 honors as a middle linebacker at Oklahoma. The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder had 72 tackles and helped the Sooners stuff opponents' running games en route to a trip to the Orange Bowl. This week, however, Mitchell has moved to strong-side outside linebacker, a position he hasn't played since high school. If he shows he can handle that role, the flexibility would make him even more attractive to NFL scouts.

Sam Adams was a 1st round pic. And with that being said the two players that have impressed me the most have been Marcus Spears and David Baas. Spears has just dominated some of the o linemen in the pratices and I think someone wrote that Baas has not given up a QB pressure in the one on one drills and has good boarder line great foot work.

that is from pro football weekly.

if the Texans interviewed Cadillac is it just a random interview or are we actually looking to get him.

You have to understand the value of each player regardless if you take him or not. If the Texans do not want him they may want to use leverage to trade down to another team. If you do not correctly gauge the value in a player then you are not maximizing your negotiating position.

That said, I'm sure we are looking for another back to stablize our offense. Williams is a Dom Davis type back.

Sounds like the story the guy on ESPN was saying yesterday about one of the questionaires asking him if he has an urge to kick a dog on the side of the road

Almost the same kind of deal here...

Who are some of the NT types that have impressed? I was thinking someone like Bryant would be a good late round pick to backup Payne. I know he gets push, but in one game I saw he seemed to wear down quick. He only played like half the snaps.

I'm watching the Sr bowl practice and Baas is just mauling people from the Center position. Dominating his man. Joel Driessen looks good too.

I was worried about all of the fumbled snaps, but Frye and Orlovsky dont seem to be having any trouble.

Baas started at C the last 8 games at Michigan and had no problems. I think that is being overblown.

Quote:
The North practice in the afternoon was once again MUCH more laid back but the guy who really stood out in my eyes was TE Joel Dreessen of Colorado St. who continued to make plays including a great catch over the deep middle and held onto the ball despite being laid out by Jamaal Brimmer. He could be a great H-Back at the pro level in the mold of someone like Chris Cooley...

...The Chiefs were active, with their offensive line coach telling North Carolina C Jason Brown that he liked how he played with leverage and his work ethic while I also saw team personnel speaking with Georgia WR Reggie Brown and they made a beeline for U.C.L.A. FB Manuel White. Kansas City also huddled with WR Vincent Jackson, who also drew interest from the Titans. Clemson ILB Leroy Hill conversed with the Bears linebackers coach, Louisville ILB Robert McCune and Troy DE Demarcus Ware met with the Bengals, Michael Boley of Southern Miss spoke with the Saints, Justin Geisinger of Vanderbilt chatted with the Chiefs and Chargers, and Auburn S Junior Rosegreen talked with the Panthers.

Don't know where I saw it now, but one scouting report said the hand-off problems being reported as Baas not a natural center were only happening with one QB (can't remember which one) so the problem might have been more on the QB.

If I was a team looking for a center I'd really be harping on this. That would maybe give me a better chance at him.

This guys draft makes no sense. Why would we take a running back in the 2nd. The same reason he's got Alex Smith QB, Heath Miller TE going in the 20's and Carlos Rogers going in the 2nd round .
Yo Vinnie is there a way we could start a website and magazine and go to the Senior Bowl on business. Then write it off as a business expense. I'm going to get laid off anyhow its time to turn over a new leaf. What if we got Budwieser as a sponsor I could endorse them I use their product.
