Good question. I think first rounders are usually just before training camp. I would say about 2-3 weeks before that the lower round picks sign. Remember Harrison did not graduate from Stanford until June, so he was signed after that. Probably july?

I believe you are speaking some serious truth there. I just want to get everyone in camp this year. Rough opening schedule, and losing Cushing does not help. Everyone needs to be on the sam page and ready from the get-go.

I do not anticipate a problem getting everyone in on time. Jackson will get slotted in between #19 and #21. He will sign right around the time everyone else does, between 3 days and 3 hours before training camp!

Maybe a couple, but usually most of the draft picks are signed somewhere between the 4th of July and training camp

Why do we always have one of the latest Mini-Camps/OTAs? I hate the waiting game.

Kubiak had throat surgery and had to wait for the throat to heal enough for him to return to work. When I had the same surgery it was some time before I was 100%.

Also some of the younger players have been going to school, this gives them a chance to finish finals.

Didn't think about the finals part. That is very true, but it's not just this year that the Texans have late OTAs/Mini-camp (in regards to Kubiak's throat surgery).

Like who's going to replace Cushing for the opening 4 games...

I'm interested to see who's running 1st team on the o-line and what position Wade Smith is playing. Not that it couldn't change before camp. Just would like to see what the coaches are thinking right now. Also wondering if Jacoby Jones will get a shot at dislodging Walter as a starter in 2 WR sets.

Just like every year, the stuff I look forward to the most in OTAs and mini-camp are the rookies, both drafted and undrafted. I love seeing (well, hearing) about how our brand new players are adjusting to the NFL.

By the way, I just want to take this time to thank all of you who go to the OTAs and camps in advance. For those of us that cant go, it is unbelievably awesome to hear about what is going on- who looks good, who doesnt, who might surprise, etc. You guys are awesome.

How do you get to go? I thought you could only go during training camp to watch practice.

No clue. But it seems like every year people get information for those of us who are outside the Texans area, and I wanted to let them know that we appreciate it.

I'm hopeful that more of the fan site bloggers get media credentials, now that Tony Wylie is out of the picture. I would like to read more unfiltered information than we currently receive.
