    Only one other tackle left on the board that I think could start this season in Quessenberry .... Glad they got this pick out of the way.

    I give it an A because it is a fit as far as need, scheme, and position. He played RT in a zone blocking scheme, and was probably the most ready guy to compete now at RT that was available.

    Good tackle, but came of shoulder injury. 50/50 on Williams.

    I think this guy is a Day 1 starter. He knows the basics of our scheme. And he's going to get a lot of work in the offseason in the OTAs, Mini-camps, and Training Camp with Newton injured.

    I expect him to beat out Harris and start.

    I thought he would have lasted till the fourth and would have preferred the other Williams, who I thought was the last DT with the skill set I wanted, but I think he is a talented player with Round 1 upside.

    Not really. he is into games, anime and other "geeky" things. Let him have fun at least he isn't out getting wasted on purple drank or stealing laptops.

    Brennan is from my hometown. Comes from a football pedigree, his father played for the Patriots. Real nice kid, played on a few basketball teams with him.

    I watched that, seemed to do a pretty good job to me, saw him get beat for a sack hit the qb ran and it didn't look like he knew where he was. Saw execute some fairly difficult reach blocks did seen to have a little bit of a problem with the seal on the MLB on a couple runs up the middle but I would not say he got beat a lot. I'd rate his performance about a B.

    Has to be an A. A team always needs to be adding talent to the OL, ad Williams has a lot of talent. Late 3rd is pretty good value as well.

    This! Plus: in my opinion RT was about the biggest need for this team and we added someone that has a lot of experience in a zone blocking scheme. Behind Hopkins, Williams is my favorite pick so far.

    I think the Texans feel they can coach up talent on the OL . Because of this I think he could surprise us because he has some talent .

    Good value in the third, could very well be a day one starter at RT. Big plus that he's familiar with the scheme and there's no concern about playing LT in college and moving to RT. More I think about it I think I should've given this pick an A.
