    Hey guys im back from Pro day. I met Mc Clain there. he remembers me from when I work at whole Foods on Bellaire. Anyways He told me the Texans def going to take Reggie Bush; and that Moulds going to be offical tomorrow. I got a few pics as well. I also talk to Kubiak, John Fox and Lendale White.

    lil tibits:

    Reggie Bush look damn good, 4.33 first attempt 4.38 second

    Lendale White will be the bust of the draft. Only 15 reps.
    Looks fat and lazy very sloopy. After his reps pn Bench Press; A USC guy told the NFL Personal that Lendale wasnt going to run the 40 due to a pulled Hip Flexor. All the NFL personal started shaking there heads and laughing.

    Looks like we are High on this Kid Rucker from USC. Charley and Gary kept talking and whispering to each other when he was working out.

    Charley came into the Proday with a hot *** sweater on. and Gary had a Hot *** hoodie on.lol they both took them off after 15 minutes.

    Texans came to the Proday very Deep; Like a Rap Posse. All eyes was on them!

    Umm other small tidbits:

    Byrd look very good.

    Lendale Family Member was with a Steelers Scout like the whole day.

    Lendale was chilling with a guy who had steelers gear on and had a media pass.

    49ers looks very interested in Bing,Maybe pass up on Huff in the first round and try to grab Bing in the second.

    Vikings scout brought his son to proday. The son had a Lienart Jersey on.

    Reggie Bush had an un invited drunk uncle at Pro Day, kept yelling at Pete Caroll talking about Reggie my Nephew! He had a few beers he told me, Some (Bush)wisers.. lol. Reggie got some Ghetto stragglers in his family;but they seem all supportive.

    Lendale's Dad seems cool. Also Mauta's folks. Lendale Family are ghetto too.

    I met Kubiak, John Fox. Both are cool.

    anyways that's that.

    Frostee Rucker DE 6’3 260 USC

    Frostee Rucker began his career at Colorado St. but transferred to USC after his freshman season. In his first two seasons at USC, he totaled 55 tackles, 11.5 for loss, and four sacks. As a senior, he matched those numbers. For the year he had 51 tackles, 12 for loss, and 6.5 sacks. Showing his consistency, Rucker put up similar numbers as a senior, finishing with 56 tackles, 14 for loss, with 6.5 sacks and an interception.

    Rucker makes his presence felt all over the field. He is a good athlete, and shows the ability to beat the tackle off the snap to get into the backfield. Rucker is very active, and will make plays as both a pass rusher and run stopper. He has an infectious attitude and players rally around him.

    Frostee is the epitome of a tweener. He lacks the bulk and strength to be an everydown end, and lacks the closing speed to play off the line. He can be completely taken out of the running game if he does not beat the tackle off the line because he simply is not strong enough. Even though he gets consistent penetration, Rucker lacks the closing speed to be a dominant playmaker.

    Frostee Rucker has been a key member of USC’s success recently. He does not put up eye-popping stats, but his ability to consistently get into the backfield has disrupted opponents. His upside is very limited, but he is a guy who could be a solid back up at the next level. His attitude is an asset, as he keeps things light, but turns up the intensity on the field, and gets his teammates to step up as well. Rucker should be an early Day Two selection because players that can get to the passer are always coveted.

    Another DE, I dont see us taking Another DE to early in the draft I mean we have so many right now

    Haha. I knew Lendale would cause some shoulder shrugs. He's not a terrible Back at all but he will need to do some weight lifting and get that upper body strength. Thanks for the info.

    Rucker was victimized in the Rose Bowl by VY. Ironic, if we're high on him.

    If we get him,probably to play LB, not DE. He look more like a LB.

    A player wouldn't sand bag to drop to a certain team would he? White seems like the re-incarnation of the Bus. The Steelers have an eye on him eh? His being sloppily out of shape today probably means very little in the context of a 10 year career.

    It's puzzling, that's for sure.

    Unless White was injured - in which case he should have just passed and waited on individual team workouts - this is a huge disappointment.

    Geez. The guy averaged 6.6 yards a carry throughout his college career. You'd think a work ethic would go along with that.

    Perhaps the big uglies up front had more to do with his YPC than we think? That and the threat of #5?

    Naaaahhhhh.

    Are you serious? That's a warm-up. 15 reps would have been enough to warm up. I agree with you if he hadn't warmed up to much he would have had a few more reps in him. I guess the world will never know.

    Although, I for one would NEVER! EVER! ......for any reason slip on a pair of "cardinal and mustard colored shades" even for the WHOLE OF MANKIND/HUMANITY......for absolute fear of "mimicking a crazed zombie" looking for reggie bush to become the TEXANS first pick in the upcoming draft......

    .....now after taking the liberty to explain that......I for one would like for you to explain just what did you mean within your public pronouncements of those kid's family members as being as you so eloquently put it, "ghetto"........

    care to elaborate on this bit of stereotyping.......?

    One, just cannot help but wonder just what did you think of Matt Leinert's family......?

    well I was around his family for about 30 minutes waiting on them to open the gate. I talked to his uncle and he's damn ghetto. Im Black and I been in and out of the Ghetto, and I know Ghetto when I see it. I posted some things on nfldraftcountdown.com and I mention about Matt Lienart Brother with his spiked hair pimpin on his cell looking like one of those Gotti Kids. Seems to me you trying to make whipcream out of bull crap.

    NOT NECESSARILY......for I am just a people person, and I appreciate treating all people with parity.......

    I just don't see why their family traits/characteristics are even considered relevent........STRANGE INDEED!
