    This is one back that I like and and think would help the Texans at the goalline.

    I really like this guy. Hes a monster... but as the article stated, is he good fit for us? I think the Texans will be looking very close at this guy at the combine as a possible 2nd round pick. Most importantly, the quickness (sharp cut ability) he displays... as thats probably an area the Texans would like him to have more of at this point. But that also may be where Slaton would come in.

    Dixon looks the part, and has the resume. Maybe it was the weird spread offense he was in, but I just don't see a real instinctive runner when I watch him. And his DUI last summer won't earn brownie points with the Texans.

    I'd have no problem if the Texans decided to take Dixon in the 2nd round.

    Well, he'll never get athletes feet for sure. The guy isn't a gym rat. So tell me true: How can a guy that big lift like a little WR ? Inquiring minds wish to know ?
