    I was thinking we could put the information we get from the combine into one thread, make it easier for everyone. In this thread we could discuss measurements and player interviews, especially those pertaining to the Texans.

    There is a rumor that TCU's Marshall Newhouse has met with the Texans.

    Here is NFL.com's combine center http://www.nfl.com/combine/top-performers#tp-tab-set-1:tp-grid-container-bench-press

    Look at Petrus, damn!

    Mitch Petrus, 45 reps on the bench press, very impressive. He's got good size as well. If he does well in the agility drills then I'd like the Texans to take him in the 2nd or 3rd.

    Thats the thing- Petrus is supposed to be among the most athletic of all the linemen. And I see it when watching film, he is very fluid. I believe he even played FB at one point? That would be an interesting short yardage formation.

    Petrus keeps moving up the amatures scouts list. He went from a 4th rounder to now 2nd rounder. I think the pro scouts already had him pegged. :spin:

    I am already tired of the coverage done by the NFLnetwork, I am tired of Tebow. Stop talking about a weak class of QBs. Discuss the deep areas of the draft for once.

    Holliday ran much slower than I expected, a 4.34 per NFL.com.

    Schefter reporting he ran a 4.22

    http://twitter.com/Adam_Schefter

    An OT Bruce Campbell ran a blistering 4.78
    Fastest ever by an OL

    Wow!

    Hmm, Schefter is reporting faster times than NFL.com. Campbell is going to the Raiders now, no doubt. Holliday, depending on his agility drills, could be a fifth round pick.

    Yeah, I imagine he is reporting what one scout clocked him at. NFL.com is reporting what they believe to be the official times. But I dont think they become official for a few days.

    But then again ?

    Fell a sleep. Pretty impressive a 311 pound OT moving the forty yard dash @ 4.78. Bruce Campbell made himself some money to day. He was great in all of the drills. The only question about him is why doesn't the game tape match the numbers of the combine drills ? This kind of a big man with that athleticism should be rolling people up at the LOS.

    A little disappointed in Iupatis' forty. 5.26 is good , but it isn't OLT speed. He looked natural running it. You could see he was gaining speed with every step.

    Newhouse ran a great time. 5.07. All of these are unofficial. Watch the way they can run the forty. You can pretty much pick out the athletes from the bag of bolts and washers. The Kid from Abilene Christian, Washington had an incredible broad jump. Good indication of explosive hips. .

    Pouncey had the numbers which match his college production. Pretty safe pick in any round. Looks powerful. runs with grace. He's a great Athlete, and a great Guard prospect.

    Great group of TE's. No excuse for a club with a young QB not to grab one of these guys in the first three or four rounds. good thing that Kubes isn't there. Every shape and every size. Some great combo's of blocker-receiver. Some great blocking prospects with soft hands. Some Match up nightmares. Garret Graham of Wisconsin reminds me a lot of Joel Dreisen. Jimmy Graham looks like a good guy to grab in the last half of the draft.... fold him onto the practice squad and see what you have in 2012. He has the hands and workout numbers which suggest if he really wants it, he could be something special. He's going to be rawer than Jacoby Jones starting out. Which is why you could get him pretty cheap. With very few exceptions, all of them were good. You gotta figure after double dipping last year the odds are we won't bite at the tight end position this draft.

    Hernandez of Fla. and the Arizona guy who looks like a beefed up Johnny Weissmuller chose to work out at their pro days. DNP.

    Holliday is tearing it up. 42" vertical and a 9'8" broad jump.

    EDIT: And a 6.54 cone drill, he easily has the agility to be a returner in the pros.

    He automatically becomes the fastest man in the NFL when he gets there.
    He won the SEC 100 as a freshman and finished second in the NCAA 100.
    The guy ran a virtual 10 flat (10.02). He and Jamaal Charles are both faster than Chris Johnson.

    Marshall Newhouse would be a nice replacement for Chester Pitts, he has the size (6'3" 325-lbs) and did well at the combine IMO. Holliday would be a good pick, only if he was a bit taller!

    Because offensive tackles aren't asked to run 40 yards much. If ever.

    Campbell reminded me of Jason Smith last year, anyway how did he do as a rookie in St. Louis? oh yeah the Rams are picking #1 now instead of #2. regardless very impressive, think it was mentioned had played in only 17 games. very raw but gifted.

    Yeah, his thing is his inexperience. He tried to make it sound like a positive. No bad habits to unlearn, blah blah blah. :)

    It's going to be interesting to see how he develops.

    Yeah well you can tell that to Ulatoski and his pedestrian 5.45. The only thing he'll be buying next year is a whistle. As close as he'll get to a playing field next fall will be coaching the highschool lads. Same goes for eveyones darlin' in Here Mike Johnson. Told ya!
    5.38 is laughable in the ZBS. Even for a guard. Don't know what the Texans could do with him. Dress him up let him watch the door on Kirby, I suppose.

    So you've got a 226 pound TE. 6'4" and he posts a 4.66...i.e almost as fast as
    Jerry Rice when he came out. Is that there thing a really quick TE. Or a very big and Quick #2 wide reciever ? Look at his hand size. Raw like Jacoby was when he came out.Don't think he was asked to block a lot at Pittsburg. But someone looking for a little versatility will get a woody for the guy. He's got to want to block. some guy like it . Some guys don't. Until he proves he can block with vim & vinegar, he's just a shinny H-back. Nothing more. If he learns to block he becomes elite.

    And the poundster, Maurice Pouncey, is only three oh five boys. No different than what we already have on the squad.
