    45.3%

    6.7%
  3. No. We should have traded up for Dillard.

    Do you think Dillard can. learn to run block? If so you have your LT of the future. I too see Howard as a RT due to his avg athleticism.

    By 2020 I could see an OL of

    Draft pick/Rankin/Fulton/Scharping/Howard.

    2020 is a great LT class. There are 4-5 LT's that are better than this yrs class. Minus Williams.

    It will be such a great thing to have a young talented OL in yr 3 of the rebuild.

    When I went back and watched tape on Tytus Howard at the senior bowl one of the more consistent players there that doesn't get talked about enough was Chuma Edoga out of USC. Only thing Lance knocked him on was his weird frame. Jets drafted him at 92nd overall. I think they got good value on him.

    Howard is anything but an average athlete. He has size, girth, natural knee bender, excellent lateral movement skills and fluid hips. Looks all very natural to me, like to see Texan weight and conditioning coach develop more explosion, quickness and strength, then you’ll see Texans really got hold of something.

    Edoga is a natural OT prospect and yes your right, underrated.

    This is why I try my best to avoid engaging with SteelB. He lost all credibility with me. He does a great job, though, of saying something so ridiculous that he pulls me back in once in a while. The only reason I haven't put him on my ignore list is that alot of his posts make me laugh.

    More muscle, endurance, flexibility, and explosion will help all of the linemen. I am going to speculate that these things are the goals of the S&C staff.

    Let's hope that Howard and Scharping aren't over-trained, as happened with Cush.

    Definitely nobody "over-trained" the Cushing way. We don't need any pregnant guys on the line. :whistle:

    Good research. About to loose my game film when switch service providers, AT&T dropped NFL Network, so that was reason why this popped up again, what I discovered was a great watch. Heck Omenihu beat Dillard to QB on one play even, lol. Not sure if it’s on this clip or not? But four picks from this one event by Texans must be some kind of record...

    Not to sound pessimistic because we have yet to see Howard play but I really do think he could benefit from an entire season/off-season in an NFL program.

    When Rankin came in, I also mentioned that he was carrying a lot of bad weight. It sounds like he has come into OTA's with a bigger upper body and a slimmer waist. I think Howard will need the same thing before we see the 1st round investment. (Probably why he is getting initial work at guard)

    My guess is the Texans agree with you and that's why they brought in guys like Kalil on one year deals. They're hoping they can last long enough to get the rookies more to an NFL level. As much as some on here say that a round one should be able to be a day one starter that's just not realistic for most positions. Maybe for something like a WR, then its mostly learn the plays and catch the ball, but something like a OT there are a lot of things that have to change going from a college system to an NFL system.

    STAYING IN THE LANE: The #Texans didn't reach for a OT in Jonah Williams & selected Tytus Howard instead. Why? The latest request Williams made with his new team certainly indicates he wouldn't have been a good fit anyway. What's going on? https://t.co/X7T3qIFMWx

    Some #Bengals news here. Makes sense, as Jonah Williams only wanted to play LT. With both him and Cordy Glenn in the lineup it should greatly improve their OL.

    Jonah was picked #11 and was projected to be a first year starter. First tweet doesn't make much sense.

    Jonah Williams disagrees with you, so does Cam Robinson, Tyron Smith etc...

    That may have been their thinking with Howard. A lock at RT, possible LT. He's still developing into a Tackle. Just three years ago he was small enough to play TE, along with the athleticism required to play TE.

    They'll have a year with him to decide if he should make the move to LT, or if they should draft one.

    I'm sorry did you have a point other than naming random OTs? Williams hasn't played one NFL game yet so its a little early to hold him up as an example, Robinson had a decent year but really wasn't anything special and then went out early the next season, I'll grant you Smith had a great rookie year. Just because a guy is made a starter his rookie year doesn't mean its the best choice. Just like if Watson could have got to ride the bench a season behind a vet like Mahomes did he could have been even better.

    Saying a rookie will be the starter is different than saying that they should be the starter.

    Nothing against Alabama State but I doubt they have the weight room and training staff of the Crimson Tide or any big school . After going through a pro off season and getting some shorts that fit , I bet he improves a lot with his agility .
