    i was a little confused when we drafted him but he seems like a good guy. hopefully he adjusts well to the FS position.

    Do you guys think Lord could be a 3rd string RB? I never saw him play so I was just wondering about his running skills.

    I saw him play, didn't examine him with a microscope but I can tell you he's pretty elusive and has good speed. With alot of polishing he might be developed into a 3rd string running back, but I think it's much more feasible to see him becoming a safety.

    I hope he makes the roster. If nothing else, it's just more proof that the Texans are the LORD'S TEAM.
    :D

    I know that Capers loves players that are versatile. Seems as though those types of players have better chances of making the team. Just like he likes corners that can play safety I am sure running back was another reason why they liked Lord.

    The title of this thread reminds me of a sappy country song.
    Lord, I'm Happy to be a Texan.

    I bet we could come up with some pretty good lyrics. :p

    How about the second coming of Slash, plays DB, Speciality Teams (returns or coverage), a little RB (halfback pass or threat of), maybe WR (Reverse Pass), and Maybe Emergancy QB (option plays on the goaline). The possiblitiesy are endless. :banana:

    V Man, I think what you said are the exact things that Capers has in mind for this type of player. Keep in mind the trick plays the Texans have done throughout the first two years of the franchise that helped us get some wins ie..Aaron Glenn against Jville.

    We have a real possibilty of turning this guy into a real good FS. He has the size and the speed needed. We just have to hope that Capers places him under Marcus Coleman ASAP so that Lord can get all the mentoring he can a soon as possibly. As Marcus is going to make ONE HELL of a Safety.

    I Am very glad he is a texan he is one of those guys I can see playing just about any position that he sets his mind to, that is with the correct amount of work and determination. Lord is a standup guy from what I have read, glad he is a TEXAN

    I hope Lord changes his attitude. He lost the respect on several Nebraska fans by laughing and joking around on the sidelines during some butt kickings including a couple of losses to K-State. Also, his mom lipped off a few times about how great of player he is. Hopefully, his attitude will change as a Texan. :confused:

    I hadn't heard that. It is concerning, but if it was a major issue, I don't think CC or DC would have drafted him. They like the high character players. :banana:

    It really was nothing you would have read about it in his attitude unless you were following the Huskers. You had to be watching the games or reading the Nebraska newspapers. And I am probably the only on this board that reads the Nebraska papers.

    Don’t get me wrong I hope he does well b/c I think he has the talent. Also, it is nice to see the 5th Nebraska player on the Texans’ roster. Pretty soon the Texans are going to have to wear red at all the home games. :spot:

    Lord is an athlete with 4.4 40 speed. J Lord is smart and I think he will pick it up enough to make the team.

    The early word out of rookie camp was that Lord was very impressive in drills. He was much larger and quicker than some expected.
