    Cushing: Can play all LBer positions

    Barwin: TE/OLB/DE

    Caldwell: C/LG/RG

    Glover: CB/FS

    Casey: WR/TE/RB/QB/LS

    The only guy who appears to fill a particular role (blocking TE and redzone target) is Hill. Everyone else can do a variety of things. Barwin and Casey are the two most versatile players in the draft imo. We've still got 2 picks to go but I think we just caught the Colts/Tacks after this weekend's additions.

    Funny, it seems like the ESPN people have been talking a ton about the Patriots. One thing they keep repeating is how much the Patriots value versatility and smarts.

    Texans got a number of very smart players, who are versatile, team players, and who also have leadership skills.

    With limited rosters and a sport designed to injure, versatility is handy.


    The flipside of versatility is the "jack of all trades, master of none" syndrome. Sometimes specialists are important because all it takes is one screw up to mess up a whole game. Signed, various team's issue with longsnappers and returners.

    That blocking TE is versatile as well. He has the size to double as a tackle on short yardage situations.
