Very nice article, thanks for sharing. Starting to really like the character of this team.
Is C.C. Brown gonna end up being the starter? What happened to Earl?
Brown will probably start Saturday night, but Ramon Walker will be right there just in case.
Earl hurt his shoulder. They had called it a separation but it doesn't seem to be major from the reports I've seen. A week or two of rest and he should be as good as new.
Awesome Stuff. I think it makes the most sense to take Mathis first with the information provided. Did the scouts really think that a guy, most teams didnt even go see, would be plucked ahead of Mathis, the fastest player in the draft?
Good move by Cass.
If you like him there is a chance someone else does. Teams are often cryptic at that time of year.
It would seem that while not very glamorous , this draft could be very solid . I hear good things about Johnson, Morency ,Mathis , Brown and Buchanon was had for a 2nd.
Buchanon was had for a 2nd and a 3rd. And if he plays up to his capabilities it was a steal for the Texans.
I agree that this year's draft class could end up being really strong. Johnson will see action this year and will eventually be a starter. Morency should end up being the backup and that is a very vital role for a team that wants to run the ball as much as the Texans. Mathis will return kickoffs and possibly punts as a rookie, and eventually could be a impact player at WR. Hodgdon could end up being a starter at center in a couple of years. Brown may be the free safety of the future. And Pettway could be a contributor at OLB in the future.
Brown has a better chance of being the strong safety of the future. Glenn Earl is not an All-American stud like SeanTaylor or Thomas Davis. He's a decent college safety with a growing history of injuries.
we have some good young strong safeties in Earl, Brown, and Walker. should be interesting to see which ones make the team this year.
