    Anyone have any info on how he is doing? I know he got the biggest signing bonus of any undrafted free agent.

    How has he been progressing? Could he eventually take over for Wand at LT? Does he have more or less potential?

    I havent heard much on him but Wand, if everything goes to plan, will be the LT for years to come. Brad is all potential and could possibly become a servicable back-up...

    They were talking about him on Fox the other day, only caught the end of it though. They did have a few good ideas for a nickname for him since he has such a long last name. They mentioned calling him Leker or 4K. I like 4K...

    I like the "special K" handle! They interviewed him on channel 13 a night or so ago. Seems like a great guy. Likes being in Houston and wants to play for the TEXANS! The interview told us NOTHING, but, at least Channel 13 is making an effort. Caper's calls him "Brad."

    Houston, again.
    If he is as big and talented as Wand, we could make him a project. Can't have to many good offensive tackles.

    I wouldn't bother making any nicknames for the guy. The best he can hope for is the practice squad this year, and even then chances are against him ever making the 53 man roster. He has less experience and is also older than Gerrick Jones as well as Seth Wand. He also didn't play left tackle in college, which means a lot. Teams usually have their best tackle at left.

    He was a projected 7th rounder long shot before the draft.
