1. Jadeveon Clowney, DE/OLB, South Carolina 6064 275 Earns points for showing up, even as spectator. Significant if only to meet & greet future employer, "It's very valuable to put a face with a name, and be out here watching the guys," Clowney told The Baltimore Sun. "It's something to experience" Also when asked his plans post bowl interview, just cut to chase letting everybody know his intentions to come out in no nonsense terms (no need for branding here) just a young man ready to accept responsibility & be accountable for his own actions. 2. Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois, 6022 219 2nd team Senior Bowl & MVP of Shriner Game. Flashes ability to be a starter in the NFL with work from Bill O'Brian & staff. Passed for 5050 yards, 53 TD's, completing 66% & throwing only 9 picks in 568 attempts. Keenum will remain starter until he is ready to take over. Schaub should be cap casualty. Expect if Texans cannot trade down then take QB they could very well be fine taking Clowney but would have to grab Jimmy here. 3. Jimmie Ward, Safety/CB, Northern Illinois, 5013 191 Had great week of practice & looks like a playmaking nickle to me an area which must be upgraded. He can also filter down to either safety position. A player Texans need in lineup every down. Hoping for similar role to that of Tyrann Mathieu to improve in new passer friendly era. 4. Joel Bitonio, OT/OG, Nevada, 6040 307 Started LT & stalemated Anthony Barr when they faced each other. Had impressive week of practice & really helped his stock. If tackle situation resolved if Brennan returns healthy, Bitonio can also play LG & compete with Quessenberry giving Texans infusion of much needed young talent/depth in revamped Offensive Line. 5a. Caraun Reid, Nose Tackle, Princeton, 6021 301 Very smart, yet aggressive penetrating nose who compliments Earl Mitchell (to be resigned by Texans). Had a coming out party @ Senior Bowl (two sacks) still developing but carry's weight very well like BJ Raji (little worried if he blows up his forty @ combine could go much higher based off physical measurable). 5b. (Supplemental selection based off expected free agency losses) Brent Urban, DE, Virginia, 6066 298 Withdrew from practice after tweaking his ankle, I suspect from trying to battle teammate Moses Morgan who simply dominated him (as well as others). Raw but possess ideal size for a 3-4 end, doubt he lasts this long in actual draft just based off Senior Bowl week & certainly worth the pick despite injury if available. 6. Christian Kirksey, LB, Iowa, 6016 234 Can pass rush from outside or stunt to inside, fearless attitude with strong work ethic who expect from an Iowa linebacker. Better size than Borland who I also really like but am unwilling to spend a higher pick needed over interior trench prospects posted here (2nd on North roster in tackles to only Borland). While Kirksey doesn't have the production or big name recognition he is an excellent developmental LB for Vrabel & Texans. 7. Crockett Gillmore, TE, Colorado State 6060 253 Late addition to Senior Bowl, led South in receptions with 5 for 61 yards & a TD. Had 47 receptions for 577 yards & 2 TD's. O'Brian likes to use big TE's & would be nice addition to last years 6th rd. selection Ryan Griffen. Would like to see Owen Daniels return, but could leave via free agency causing even more pressing need.
