Default C.J. Spiller

I'd like to have this guy but I am sure he will not be on the board for long.

We have enough small RBs on the team already. I would like for us to take Jonathan Dwyer from GA Tech if he declares...I would take Anthony Allen from GA Tech too and even Ryan Houston from UNC. They are all big guys with good speed and hands. I think Dwyer is the best though. I hope we look at Lagarette Blount too...just want a big young back with good speed and hands.

I dissagree that we already have enough small backs. Moats had his chance and proved he doesnt belong in the NFL. Slaton is and will be a huge question mark until he gets back on the field and proves he can play again. I really liked the kid from Oregon last year but being that small and having a cronic shoulder injury doesnt translate well in the NFL.


Spiller would fit in our offense seamlessly. He would be our Westbrook or Bush. With him on the field teams would have to respect his big play ability. We could survive with Foster and a later round pick (Blount) or bigger back in FA.

Slaton, Spiller
Foster, Blount?? or FA

would be ok by me.

On many mocks C.J. Spiller is going here. Not only do many teams in front of us have a running back, there are better players for other positions that they need. C.J. Spiller is not a pipe dream but very much a reality of our 20th pick.

Steelbtexan mentioned Chester Taylor being a FA after this season - I wouldnt mind picking him up in FA - He's a complete back and doesnt have a whole lot of miles on his body. That would the Texans to use these high draft picks on other positions - OG , FS , C , DT in the early rounds.

Spiller seems like the perfect back for a team that already has an established running game. Spiller isn't really a guy you draft when you need a RB. He's a guy you draft when you need speed to stretch the field. A guy that can be a jack of all trades (except when you need to run them 15 or 20 times a game) like Felix Jones, Darren McFadden, or Reggie Bush. He would be a big help in the return game, but will he really provide what we, the Texans, really need? We need a guy who can pound for 15-20 carries a game if need be, I don't see Spiller as that type of back.

Shonn Green would have been the perfect type of back for us last year. I see Jonathan Dwyer as that type of player this year. I would take Dwyer over Spiller for the Texans.

It's interesting to see Anthony Allen mentioned admist all of the Dwyer hype. Allen will be back at Tech this year, but he'll be an interesting prospect come 2011 draft talk. He's 6'1" 230lbs with an excellent combination of speed and power (can play both A and B back in the spread.)

I'll be really interested to see what NFL scouts say about him, but from my untrained eye I think he'll have a nice, productive career in the NFL.

All of this is while not counting on Steve as the number one RB, right?

When I watched that video these were my thoughts as well, looks like Chris Johnson, but I think he's very possible for us in the 1st. If we do take Spiller in the 1st we had better pick an OG in the 2nd cause he ain't going anywhere without a better O-line.

Its a good thing that the Texans didnt draft Chris Johnson, because he would not have had 2000 rushing yards this season. And Spiller better hope the Texans dont draft him. I have a feeling that we would ruin him, while thriving with some top tier teams.

Which isn't a reason not to draft either one.

Default Re: C.J. Spiller

Still not sold on this guy for the Texans...he looks to bring the same thing to the table as Slaton...if there are holes/open areas any of our RBs can get there. Even in Spiller's highlights you don't see a physical running back but rather a speed guy. If an NFL defender gets an arm on him he is going to go down just like Slaton when there is no space. Even though they are similar is height and weight Chris Johnson was different at ECU. Johnson was and still is a physical and fast RB. I bring up Johnson because I think he is the eye candy everyone is fixated on...fix our OL and we will have our 3500-4000 yd passing and our 1900-2000 yd rushing attacks. Notice I said attacks because it doesn't matter who get the yards as long as the team does and it translates into wins.

Taylor was available when we drafted Jon Wells...so he's a 9 year vet. It's time this team went after feature backs that didn't have teen aged kids.

I know what you're saying Vin

Though, Taylor hasn't had many carries in the last 3 yrs.

He's a hard runner with good hands and is good at pass pro.

Taylor is a low milage RB

A 2 yr deal with a team option for a 3rd year sounds about right.

Default Re: C.J. Spiller

After watching the senior bowl yesterday I am more convinced that C.J. Spiller is going to be a Texan. For all you jock riding Iupati fans out there face it he had a horrible game, he just sunk out of the first round. There was no need for Spiller to play anyways he is the feature back in the draft. Luckily a lot of teams have running backs that are picking before us or there is just going to be a better player available. I have C.J. Spiller or Kyle Wilson as our first round pick.
