    I found this piece in of all places, the Washington Post. Very lengthy and complete story on a kid that has come to carry the nickname "Roc." Reading this gives me a feeling of an upcoming sequel to the "Rocky" movies.

    NFL lockout puts Rashad Carmichael’s career with the Houston Texans on hold

    That's a real "feel good" story. Fits right in with what the Texans like in a person. I'm rooting for him.

    OK, that's what hooked me, that's when I definitely became a "Roc" fan.
    Very serious, mature, descent, responsible young man.
    We've sure drafted a bunch of corners in recent years, sooner or later just like in throwing darts we are bound to hit the bullseye with one of them ? And wouldn't it be great if it was this young man, since you gotta really pull for him.
    Really good story, and nice find C&D. Thanks !

    That would be great. There are too many great players that are bad people in sports.

    I suffer from Texans DB syndrome. Anytime Rick Smith/Gary Kubiak picks a DB in the NFL draft I immediately assume that they are going to end up terrible by year 2 and be out of the NFL by year 4.

    I like that he's wearing Diamond Turfs in that pic.

    That's funny lol everytime the Texans draft a DB I always expect them to be shut down corners no matter what round they come from. That never works out though..

    Thanks for posting Cloak, a real enjoyable read. As stated before, I watched this guy last season some and had him on my "players to focus on" at combine. I like fast receivers and corners so when he did not do the 40 well, I lost track of him. I see him as possible bumping one of the vets off the roster. This give me another reason to root for the "Roc."

    I like his story too....and about the cornerbacks we have drafted...I think with the right coaching and system we can turn this around....
