Default Texans kicked tires on SIX RBs today

Via PFT

One of them is Ryan Torain.

They must not think much of Arian Foster or Chris Henry.

I remember during this last offseason there were a lot of people around here who had our two undrafted free agent backs penciled in as significant contributors. Hopefully, we have learned a lesson here.

It is essential that the Texans take a RB in the next draft with one their first three picks.

We love injured RB's...............I guess since Ahman Green was snatched up by Green Bay, we have to pick this injured back before they're all gone.

Not so. We need not look further than the promising unknowns currently enrolled in the Jonathan Wells School of Dance.

You beat me to a Johnathan Wells reference. Although I liked the guy for some reason, he seemed like a hard worker for some reason....

I'd rather have them spend the first 3 picks on interior lineman. Houston has to get better upfront, regardless of who's running the ball.

Default Re: Texans kicked tires on SIX RBs today

there is a surplus of RB's which is a reason this process will continue until roster is set. remember last year Mike Bell came in for one of these? looks like they missed out not keeping him around & another reason they don't draft RB often or high with other pressing needs. sorry Toby

What's worth more? A lineman who can open a hole for any of our runners, or a new runner who would try to make something out of nothing?

Chris Brown's YPC last Sunday was the result of a tired defense. Look at our time of possession. If Slaton had stayed in, he would've been burning the field up.

you want us to do it again?

That's why I say "don't hold your breath". We used a "first day" pick to get Slaton just last year. Why would we do so again when (a) Slaton is working out just fine (well apart from the fumbling issue) and (b) there are more pressing needs ...like a real, live space-eating NT
or speedy, ball-hawking FS
or a starting caliber OG to replace Pitts (or at least better quality depth in the O-line)
or two or three more TEs j/k

Its a poor running back draft. You'll be hard pressed to find a quality 2nd back in this draft worth taking a flier on in the first 3 rounds. Its SO much deeper at other positions, no need to reach.

Well if Houston keeps beasting against the run like they have the past 3 weeks you can cross DT off the list. I see this team grabing a CB during round 1 and then grabbing another OL round 2........sorry S and RB fans, this team just doesn't value those positions very high.

Gee those two picks we spent on the TE position (you know...hands down the deepest and most talented positional group going into that draft) sure looks great right now.

This should happen.

Followed by a DT or RB

Default Re: Texans kicked tires on SIX RBs today

Since this has morphed into a draft thread, I'll go out on a limb and say they WILL look for a safety in the first three rounds in this coming draft. That doesn't mean we'll pick on as, like the RB this year, they guy they may be eyeing might be gone when our turn comes up. ...which, hopefully will be one of the last dozen picks.

Back to topic:
Which RB are they looking to replace?? Moats has done well on special teams and looked good in the one chance he got some gametime touches. I wonder why they don't play him more...?

And they seem to reeeally like Brown as the #2 RB....

So who were they looking to replace??
Enquiring minds want to know.

Default Re: Texans kicked tires on SIX RBs today

Two possibilities:

1) Moats recent Turf Toe is worse than reported.

2) Due to his poor run yardage and successfull passing yardage, a feel that a change in role for Slaton may make him more effective.......more of a Reggie Bush role in tandem with an effective between the tackles RB.

Just mulling over possibilities.
