    Starting to get some sizes posted.

    Olsen measured in at 6'6" 254 lbs
    Levi Brown at 6'5.5" and 323
    Thomas 6'6.5" and 311
    Staley 6'6" 306
    Blalock at 6'3.25" and 320 (good weight for him)
    Kalil at 6'2.75" at 299
    Datish 6'4" 302

    That's all for now, early returns are that no big surprises on height and weight.

    Kalil up from 287 since the senior bowl ...that's not good for us. Bottom five who could use a stud center on the o-line ?

    Thought Joe Thomas was 6'8" but at 6'6" he still a huge man. Would love to see him in a Texans uni this year but that's a long shot.

    is there a way we can find out who the Texans are paying "extra special" attention to in interviews, etc--kind of like at the Senior Bowl?

    thanks kast--

    does anybody think Quinn will be forced to do more at the combine than he initially wanted to get back in the mix for the Raiders or the Browns possibly? i had heard that he wasnt going to do a full workout at the combine but still had visions of being drafted at the top.

    Apparently C. Johnson weghted in at 239

    and J. Russel at close to 265.

    Both a touch heavier then expected.

    If I was Quinn's agent seeing how his stock has fallen, I'd protect my percentage by having him do whatever any team with a top ten pick wanted.

    doesnt 239 approach TE levels? that seems really heavy for a WR. not saying calvin johnson cant ball at that weight, but man, where is the seperation going to come from?

    If CJ breaks 4.4 like he should, at that weight, with his height, and with his skills, he should be deemed the best WR prospect in the history of football.

    quinn doesn't have to do anything at the combine. if he has a great pro day, he's good. teams remember what happened most recently, so when that pro day comes in a few weeks, and if he does well, he'll be fine. now, if he doesn't do so hot, then he's really screwed. so he has more pressure on him, but he'll be fine.

    russell needs to trim down just a tad.

    he already is. which is why i can't even imagine the raiders passing on him for some average QB prospect like russell. makes no sense.

    Well, he has always been said to have 4.3 speed, so if he does it at that weight, there will be plenty of seperation.

    No joke. You could mistake Russell for a DE.

    btw:

    NFL | Russell to work out at Pro Day
    Fri, 23 Feb 2007 11:18:03 -0800
    NFL Draft prospect JaMarcus Russell (LSU) said in an interview on NFL Network Friday, Feb. 23, he will wait until his Pro Day at LSU to work out for scouts instead of working out at the NFL Combine.

    so that's good for quinn.

    :ok: Well you got me on that one. Quinn makes up some ground.


    Doug Free is considerably heavier than his rooster numbers in the program. 323...burritoes. See if he still has a 5.0 in the tank.
