From Kubiak's speech at the Touchdown Club:

[QUOTEOn Mitchell: Our third guy, I think, is going to be a big surprise. I tell you, I think hes going to steal some guys lunch money up front. They better play hard and they better do a good job, or hes going to run some of them off. This kid plays extremely hard. Hes not real big, but hes all about effort, and Ive been really impressed with what hes done and I think youre going to see this kind contribute a lot. ][/quote]

Wow, really great to hear this out of Kubiak.

Sounds like he saw what happened with Okam and decided to just go with the polar opposite this time around. Glad to see he's learning from his mistakes.

Yep. But I think that is really Kollar's call, with the OK from Bush and Kubiak.

Not to nitpick but I really thought Tate would have signed by now. I'm not concerned just referring to his excitement to begin.

Why would you expect that? The 1st and 2nd rounders typically sign within a week or so of the start of training camp. Getting the 3rd signed this early seems odd to me.

Isn't Mitchell local? Could he possibly be a homegrown Texans fan?

I'm beginning to have high hopes for The Mitch. I just hope they don't end up biting me in the butt. I'm definitely going to be keeping a sharp eye on him throughout camp and pre-season. Gotta love watchin the big nasties bangin in the trenches!
