    Darius Butler will be tempting, his pro day is coming up March 25th. He is already graded as 1st rd. pick, remember how far up the boards Dunta Robinson moved in 04 & he turned out pretty well, question is will the Texans keep him?

    whoever it is I would pay close attention to their pro-day workouts. observe who attends, the higher profile representitive its probable the more interest there is. then in April (sorry after you've selected) teams can invite a number of prospects in to workout.

    once a player makes it in the league their market price commands premium cap space after rookie contract expires, see Dunta Robinson. does anybody know what he wanted or what the Texans offered that they were forced to franchise him? I would hate like hell to lose Dunta, he would be my favorite Texan all-time but its a buisness. you have him at least one more year, use him & mentor his possible replacement, just in case.

    I read the pro-day workouts section of NFL.com everyday. The one thing that strikes me as odd is that when they list all who was there for a player, not once have they mentioned the Texans.

    I like his reasoning for not taking Wells at 15. "We already had a guy named Wells from Ohio State!" Can't argue with that kind of logic.

    Nice post Wolf.

    So one the one hand we got Andre Smith....who has clearly made the choice of not working his franchise for three years. Skipping through life with a smile, a gut and wouldn't get turned away from Frederick's of Hollywood if he wondered into their shop and was looking for some support. And on the other hand, you've got Cushing who has taken it seriously for three years. And it's Cushing who is getting nicked picked apart. Go figure. :splits:

    I thought I read he wanted what the herd was getting :14 * 2 thirty five total. Guess what If I was smith I would of tagged the guy too. 2011 might be the last season for a while....tag him again next year.

    Bad Luck for Robinson. I think I could make the lock out with 6.5 Million in the bank after taxes. 'Coures I'm not a very greed man.
