Texans attending Clemson pro day today
Michigan CB Xavier Crawford
Heard from a few teams that had him in the mid-4.3s, up from his 4.48 at the Combine. Apparently it was cold on the field in Indy when the corners ran, so expect improved times for guys at pro days. As for Crawford, the #Texans and #Saints will bring him in for pre-draft visits.
Sometimes it’s cold during actual games, Mike. I’ve heard that scouts add 0.1 seconds to handheld times, which would make the pro day time virtually identical to the combine time. And 4.48 is a perfectly acceptable time for a CB.
Only thing that worries me about Crawford is he has short arms.
5th/6th Rd pick.
I like Bunting from all of the small school guys.
We broke down how the Clemson Tiger offensive line played a huge part in their dynasty dismantling of Alabama (check that out here). Now we’ll zoom out to take a look and appreciate the whole career of one of the starters from that excellent OL.
Mitch Hyatt, the starting left tackle for all four of Clemson’s playoff teams, is often overlooked. He’s a quieter kid at a less glamorous position, so that makes sense, but his contributions can’t be understated.
I dunno wonder how much interest the Texans have in OT Mitch Wyatt ?
He gets minimal pub, ratings seem to be in mid-rounds, maybe his name appears in the 2nd round of some mocks.
This guy played left tackle for the national champ and has been a 4-year starter at OT for Clemosn which is a significant accomplishmet.
Probably just lacks the athleticism to play in the big leagues and is another college OT headed to guard.
NFL franchise LTs are indeed a rare breed.
I've heard that center might be Hyatt's position in the NFL.
Texans should do their due diligence on ALL LT's coming out - especially in the tougher conferences.
I watched him a bunch, last year and the year before. One thing about Hyatt .... he never phones it in ! He always brings it, and leaves it all on the field .... heart of a lion type !
Hey that's good to hear because I've been looking for some intel on this guy and since we know the Texans have a bias about Clemson players (Dabo Swinney refers to Houston as Clemson West), so I won't be surprised if Gaines moves on this guy next month.
Solid to great College athlete but does not translate to immediate success in NFL like everyone thinks or hopes. Seems more like a journeyman OL.
I'd like to be able to say, with conviction, "That's what professional coaches are for" .... but, well, you know. Seriously though, I watched a segment on the NFL TV channel the other day. They absolutely raved over Munchak going to Denver as their offensive line coach .... it was like, he was going to take them to the Super Bowl, on his back .... not that he won't !
I think he's a swing OT.
Best case Mike Remmers
I dunno but don't you think that 4.48 is a pretty pedestrian time especially when you consider that we play guys like T Y Hilton ?
And BTW any non Indy combine time which basically means anything hand-timed is suspect as far as I'm concerned.
Jalen Ramsey ran a 4.41. 7 hundreds of a second over 40 yards. It's about more than straight line speed
and even 2 tenths of a second over 40 yards comes to what?
There's a meaningful difference between 4.41 & 4.48 in the 40.
Besides Ramsey is a 10.5 100 meter & 21.4 200 meter sprinter so there's absolutely no question whatsoever about his long speed.
He was also the 5th pick in the draft. The guy we're talking about is a possible Day 3 pick.
The estimate I understand is that the difference between 4.5 and 4.4 is a clear step in a straight line race...A clear step in the NFL is open.
Unless your long like Richard Sherman and the Oakland Raider guy who went to Philly from Cal . That's whole new math equation . Length = how many steps .
Yeah but how often does a war run 40 yards in a straight line? My point is that being a step slower over 40 doesn't mean that you can't cover if you have good technique and knowledge of the routes
