Alright, I know I said I was not going to do one of these this year. But, while thumbing through my rankings, I decided to just post the small school rankings. Right now, I just have them in top 10 format.

Great info bud! Appreciate the effort you put into this. I recognize some of these names, but most are new to me. It will be interesting to see how many are drafted and where.

Could you highlight the players you think the Texans might have an interest in, and maybe a little info?

Default Re: 2010 Small School Prospects

Ryan Periloux was impressive in the limited snaps I saw from him at lsu. havent seen him since but I would take a look at him if I were an nfl team even though he is a headcase.

wasnt Jmarcus Webb a big time prospect coming out of highschool? I had no idea he was at WT.

Default Re: 2010 Small School Prospects

I created a new list for wildcat/mobile QBs that have developmental upside. I doubt the Texans look at any of these guys, but I would bet around 8 of these guys make it into an NFL camp.

1) Armanti Edwards, Appalachian State, 5’11” 187 lbs
2) Brandon Summers, Youngstown State, 6’ 200 lbs
3) Derrick Fourroux, McNeese State, 6’2” 200 lbs
4) Mike Brusko, Maine, 6’3” 225 lbs
5) Eric Ward, Richmond, 6’2” 210 lbs
6) Dan Whalen, Case Western Reserve, 6’1” 192 lbs
7) Dennis Brown, Norfolk State, 6’3” 200 lbs
8) Cam Sexton, Catawba, 6’1” 200 lbs
9) Lorenzo Brown, Sioux Falls, 6’ 200 lbs
10) Curtis Pulley, Florida A&M, 6’3” 190 lbs

What separates these QBs from the top 10 list (although Edwards does make a repeat appearance) is that these players are not great passers. Yet. Some lack accuracy, some like arm strength, and some lack great decision making ability. However, they all have some upside. Some may be able to fit a Brad Smith type role (NY Jets), others may eventually grow into a true QB.

Also, I am considering doing a spotlight on one of these guys, so keep an eye out.

A Texan scout went up to San Marcos to look at Bradley George. He's a tall QB (6,6) with a big arm and quicker than he looks. He's 27... he played minor league baseball. You would have to bet that he would learn the system quick and be a backup. His arm is better than Schaub's but he is not as accurate. He will be an UDFA for sure with his age.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0LU_UvsRsg

This is him against Montana in the playoffs, it is a Montana video so there is not much focus on George but you can see his arm strength.

Another video with a couple throws.

Default Re: 2010 Small School Prospects

Can you tell us about these dudes?

#1 OC Kyle Mutcher, Weber State, 6’3” 300 lbs
#2 OC Austin Steichen, Northern Iowa, 6’2” 305 lbs

Will they be drafted? Are they raw or can they play now? Are either of them starter material? Why do you think the Texans will look at Austin Steichen, and do you think it will be for competition for Myers?

This is him against Montana in the playoffs, it is a Montana video so there is not much focus on George but you can see his arm strength.

Another video with a couple throws.
You are more suited to judge Bradley than I, but I don't think he is worthy of a top 10 spot on the QBs, and is not mobile enough to be in the WildCat rankings.

His age knocks him back, he is about as talented as the last couple guys on the QB list. But a team would rather take a chance on a guy 4-5 years younger with equal skill sets.

He does have a cannon arm though...

For one, I highlighted the wrong guy. I think the Texans look at Mutcher, not Steichen.

Mutcher and Steichen are neck and neck, I had a hard time picking which one I wanted to place first.

Mutcher is more athletically gifted. He can pull with the best of them. He does need to work on pass protection, he seems hesitant. He only has average strength, but he is a fantastic run blocker. He has great technique, and while he does not bulldoze guys he removes them from play. I think the Texans look at him because of his mobility and run blocking prowess.

Steichen may have more upside. He is not as mobile, but he is stronger. Better when not asked to get to the second level. He is adept at cut blocking, should his team need it.

They could both be drafted in the 7th, but I only expect Mutcher to be drafted. Neither of them would contribute immediately, but they could conceivably be ready by 2011, to at least compete. However, they would be decent backups.

I would say he ranks with the top guys on the FCS level, and with a better or just as good of an arm than any of the top guys on the FBS level this year. The knock is his age of course. If he was 22 or 23 he'd be drafted for sure.

I believe he ran a 4.8, so at 6,6 225 pound 27 year old white guy thats pretty good. I would say his mobility is above average but it is painful to see such a large (older) target run up field, running the risk of injury.

I stand by my previous post, and his current place on the small school rankings.

He has a strong arm, thats for sure. But he does not posses anything more than average accuracy. Also, his throws across the middle come out low, meaning they can be tipped or intercepted. I also see him locking onto receivers a lot.

If he was younger, I could see him sliding into the last round. Maybe. But he is 4-6 years older than these guys, and teams would rather take a chance on a guy with upside. George will get into a camp, but unless he really impresses, I dont see him on a roster next year.

The Texans were at Armanti Edwards' proday were they not? Or did they invite him in for a looksee? I just remember seeing somewhere that we looked at him.

Care to elaborate your thoughts on him?

I believe they went to his pro day, I am not sure about the official visit.

Armanti Edwards is one of the biggest enigmas in this draft. He has all the athletic ability in the world, but is so small, too small to be a traditional QB. But he is so effective at the position, I hate to classify him as a WR, mostly because I dont know about his hands, and again, he is so small. He would have problems beating the jam, going up for balls, etc.

He does have underrated arm strength. And he has always had good accuracy. Those two traits make me think that maybe, just maybe, he could become a legit QB. But then I worry about his ability to read a defense. He played in a spread style offense, and rarely (if ever) had to drop back and survey the D. Edwards also looks to run first. If the first guy is not open, he is gone.

However, Armanti Edwards is a dangerous man with the ball, and he just wins. I know its cliche, but he wins ball games. In the NFL, he should not be pigeon holed into a position. He should play the Wildcat QB, get some snaps out of the slot, even out of the backfield. One thing I would not do is let him return kicks, I dont think he is that kind of player.

All things considered, I doubt the Texans go after him. In talking with badboy and beerlover about the wildcat, one of them (can't remember which one, my bad guys) brought up that since Kubiak got reamed for the Chris Brown pass, he might be hesitant to go "gimmicky" on offense.

I hope this helps, I need to fix my first post. I have Edwards as my 7th rated QB, it was before I decided to make a separate list for Wildcat players.

I posted this in the private workout thread:

But while White was selected in the second frame, Edwards brings even more value to an NFL team as he’s projected to be a fourth round draft pick.



Even though Edwards isn’t projected to be a high-round selection, he’s had a hectic schedule this off-season. He’s had private workouts with the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. He’s already visited the Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins. And, Scout.com has learned that Edwards will visit the Houston Texans on April 11th and 12th and the St. Louis Rams on April 13th and 14th.
So, Edwards supposedly in Houston as we speak. Welcome to H-town, Armanti! BTW, Edwards did field punts at his pro day.
