    Way to be a team player Dom. I'm sure it was tough for Sage too, but that didn't stop him from doing whatever he could to help the team when he was injured.

    People handle injuries in different ways. Domanick has proven himself to be a team player numerous times in the past.

    It would be really interesting if they could sign Corey Redding to shore up their Defensive Line. That would make things real interesting!

    I'll believe it when I see it. I don't expect Domanick Williams to return to the football field based upon our previous knowledge of the situation.

    Good article, though, and interesting stuff. Good to hear that the Texas are aggressively addressing the off-season, because it's definitely an important one.

    This article just reminded me that The Texans need to do something about the Center position.

    Any good ones in the draft or FA?

    Yeah, that was pretty stupid for DD/DW to say that out loud, especially to the press. But I don't think it is any indicator of his dedication to the team.

    Don't know about FA but Mozes and Satele will be drafted probably on the first day.

    IMO, these are a few that sound like they would fit our style very well. I especially like Samson Satele b/c he seems like someone who may slip to the 3rd-4th round.

    Ryan Kalil, USC---6-3, 285, 40-Time: 5.15
    Strengths:
    Good quickness...Moves well and has great range...Is extremely smart with great football instincts and is like a coach along the offensive line...Still has the frame to pack on some additional pounds...Does a nice job in pass protection...Is tough, a hard worker and a leader with top-notch intangibles...Excellent technician...Just a steady, all-around player who has a ton of experience against elite competition.

    Doug Datish, Ohio St---6-5, 295, 40-Time: 5.15
    Strengths:
    Good quickness, athleticism and mobility...Has the frame to add some weight and bulk up...Is extraordinarily versatile with starting experience at center, guard and tackle...Is technically sound and does all the little things...Nasty and plays with a killer instinct...Smart and a hard worker with good intangibles...Has some upside.

    Samson Satele, Hawaii---6-3, 311, 40-Time: 5.20
    Strengths:
    Versatile with experience at center, guard and tackle...Moves very well in space and can get to the second level...Has decent quickness, agility and balance...Very tough with outstanding strength...Superb pass blocker...Is nasty and plays with a killer instinct...Good technician...Smart with outstanding instincts and awareness.

    I hope the powers that be don't put all their eggs in DW's basket like last year.
