Default Jean making an impact at Texans camp

Quote:
Lestar Jean is continuing to impress at Texans training camp.

Jean, an undrafted free agent wide receiver from Florida Atlantic, was signed by the Texans on July 26. He's caught the eyes of fans during public practices and more importantly he's caught the attention of his head coach.

“(Jean is) continuing to (make plays)," said Texans head coach Gary Kubiak after practice this morning. "He’s a big body kid and I’ve had some of the DBs come over to me and say ‘Hey coach, that guy is tough to handle.’ So, he’s got a lot of ability, he’s got that big body, y’all saw that catch he made this morning so there’s going to be two young receivers on this team so it’ll be interesting to see who they are.”

I didn't see the catch that Jean made this morning but I saw one that he made at practice six days ago that earned him "catch of the day" in a previous camp report.



Quote:
So if you're among those who think pre-season games are meaningless, think again. They mean everything to young players trying to make a NFL roster.

Aside from Jean, Dickerson and Townsel have had strong camps. Maehl has been impressive in the 'David Anderson role.' Toliver hasn't hit his stride yet, and Townsel is the only one in the group that returns kicks.

Dickerson is built like a linebacker and runs like a receiver. Toliver is tall and lean. Townsel and Maehl are smaller guys, so roles will likely play a factor when Kubiak makes his final selections. Kubiak expects his WR4 and WR5 to play special teams - kick coverage teams if not returns.

Last but not least, I'm sorry Trindon Holliday fans, but Holliday is the longest of long shots to make the Texans 53-man roster.

I agree i have never looked forward to pre season games, honestly never really cared if i saw any BUt i will be watching all of this season. We have so much talent at some positions that i want to see what they can do, especially at WR.

From what I've heard, Toliver is out.

At this point, I think it's DD, Jean, and either Maehl or Tounsel with the edge going to Tounsel.

Yes, I think we're going heavy at WR this year.

Well, I'd bank on Jean making the 53-man.

I think Toliver is fighting him for that spot. I think Kubiak retains Maehl (sp?) as the little slot guy in the David Anderson role who plays ST, as well.

Andre Johnson, Jacoby Jones, Kevin Walter, Dorin Dickerson, Lestar Jean, and Maehl (sp?). 7 WRs. What have we carried in the past?

TEs: OD, Dreesen, Graham, and James Casey occupies a roster spot for FB or HB/FB and can be a TE if needed. Sound right? I don't see Hill making the roster because of injury issues. We can't hang onto a TE just because he blocks well in the passing game, IMO.

Really? I thought he was playing well in camp and catching everything thrown his way. Was hoping Toliver would make the team, because I wouldn't want another team picking him up. He has talent. Rather have him on the team than Maehl.

We can't carry more than 5 because we have too much talent at TE.

Granted, AJ's twice as good as most WR's, but I think he still only counts as one - meaning you've listed six! Six Wide Receivers Ah-ah-ah!

OD, Dreesen and ??? Casey is a FB now on the depth chart. The possibilty of keeping 2 FB's certainly throws a wrench into the roster. I hadn't thought of that before.

And it also means we don't have to keep as many. I doubt Hill makes the roster and I don't know enough about Graham. Keeping 2 might be an option.

yeah 2 plus Casey if needed will work. Just pray O.D stays healthy but if he goes down i have full confidence in Dressen, he has been a solid contributor in our passing game.

Wr cuts are going to be interesting.

I think that it will come down to how they play in the pre season. From what I'm hearing townsel is the real deal, so at this point I think he makes it. After that, I think Jean probably has the upper hand.

I'm starting to wonder if Dickerson is a shoe in. I heard kubiak say that he knows who his top three are and everyone else is battling to make the team.

Gun held to my pinky toe and I have to pick I'm going with 6 wr's with Dickerson, Jean, and townsel making the cut.

I've got this sick feeling in my stomach that we're gonna cut a guy that goes to another teams and lights it up. We seem to have struck the motherlode of UDFA WR talent this year.

OD, Dreessen, and Graham? Haven't heard anything about Graham during TC but would they cut a 4th rounder this soon?
