Interesting article on Brandon Harris, not sure if any of you chose him?
http://blog.chron.com/ultimatetexans...ct-for-texans/

I think he’s about 10 pounds lighter. He’s changed his body. He’s a very bright guy. He’s got a high football IQ.

“He had a great spring. He’s having a great camp, and I’m excited about him. He’s not a 4.3 guy. He’s a 4.5 guy, but with his football IQ, he’s going to play a long time.”

This from Vance Joseph.

Since they probably won't play starter's snaps in the regular season I'll also take Rashard Butler and Bradie James for the regular season.
I already got Devier Posey. Sorry buddy.

Read the OP. Multiple people can have the same player. The more eyes evaluating a player the better.

Ah. I was under the impression that it was one player per person. My bad.

Looks like I may have to choose another player as Ball deserves to be cut after this first game. "tell me no lies and keep your hands to yourself" would be good song for him.

yeah I like Martin but Harris was a guy I had mocked and was stunned to see Smith trade back up into 2nd round to get him. I was dancing around the living room like George Michael at his first disco.

Chris Myers played the first quarter. He looked good. No obvious issues. Moved some guys out of the way.

Mercilus came in at the end of the 1st with the rest of the 2s and then played through the beginning of the 4th. He played the weakside. He got a sack and a half and really touched the QB 3x. He's stronger than I expected. He drove a couple of those tackles back and then shed them. When we went 4 down, he had his hands on the ground and on one of those plays, he had a nice stunt to get some pressure up the middle. I was surprised to see him dropping off into coverage several times. He showed a really good motor; when there were passes, he'd peel off coverage and then hustle down to the receiver. When there were running plays, he pursued. He did get eaten up a couple of times on the run plays but he was more of a load than I expected him to be.

The bottom line is that he did not look lost out there.

So, Mr. Mercilus got a lot of work in the game Saturday night. Just a few observations and I'll probably re-watch him again before our next preseason game.

Against the run, he didn't really do much to impress me. He's fairly quick but he didn't seem powerful to not get pushed around a little bit. He did drop into coverage once that I can remember and just kinda covered an empty spot in the field nobody around, the play was to the opposite side of him so it's no harm no foul.

He was decent as a pass rusher, but I got the feeling that Wade was throwing out more blitzes than what we are used to seeing in the preseason. He did make some good stops and the 1.5 sacks was very nice. His first sack he straight pushed the RT backwards about 5 yards then just lunged/jumped inside to grab Derek Anderson. The .5 sack was a nice quick run around the arc on the LT and fortunately the rest of the Panthers O-line gave up the ghost and let everybody through to party on Clausen.

Overall though I'm encouraged and I do think he will make an impact this season, but with Reed and Barwin ahead of him (And Braman looks pretty damn good himself) he's not going to start, and that is probably a good thing.

Quick comment on my two players Garrett Graham and Brice McCain from the first preseason game.

Graham was targeted four times. Had three catches for 44 yards. Kubiak has been talking him up during training camp. Here's what he said about Graham yesterday:

Quote:
(on TE Garrett Graham) Well, hes a very much-improved player, and weve seen that the last two weeks; it didnt just happen last night. Hes come a long way. Hes bigger, stronger, hes faster. Hes had a great offseason with (strength and conditioning coach) Cedric (Smith). Cedric really did a heck of a job with him. And if he continues to step the way he has in his first few weeks, its going to be a really nice year for him. Ive been very impressed with his play.
Brice McCain had three tackles with one assisted tackle. That scramble by Cam Newton up the middle for 15 yards before sliding, McCain was the first to touch him, so he got credited for the tackle.

Hey it's game one and almost no one is posting on their players. Come on dudes, where is your input? lol I was very surprised to see the guy I selected to make the roster. At 6'2" 197 pounds 27 YOA he should be in his prime, but prime what I am not sure. Mutterings on the radio as I station hop, say he has gotten better but would he not have to? I thought the whole purpose of signing him was he was familiar with Wade's system and was a vet. Could have fooled me. I hope to eat crow and he develops.
Alan Ball cornerback (well, maybe)
