    The good on Myers is that he has shown versatility in playing everywhere on the OL except for LT. For that matter, I believe back in college he even played long snapper. He has the reputation of being like a stump..........hard to move by the D. However, he also appears to have the mobility of a stump..........?for ZB?????

    No, but Bryant was the one who started for Detroit all last season - a team that was somehow MUCH worse in the secondary than the Texans were. :gun:

    I saw on Channel 11 they were talking about the Texans and I just caught the tail end of a clip and they were showing Will Smith of the Saints . Hes a good player IMO ......... I don't know what the clip was about , but they said Texans news when we come back , and by the time I came back in the room I just caught that small part of the end of the story . I dunno ....... maybe I'm just misinterpreting what I saw .

    I believe it was on Carr signing with the Giants, because Smith got up from sacking a Carolina player.

    ??, my volume was at mute.

    He played with Eric Winston at Miami too. Would be worth a 6th Round pick to fix the OL position that has been our weaklink since Day One (yes I feel that Center has been more detrimental than our LT play since '02...call me crazy)

    A 6th Rounder would kinda suck to give up but if you got the cap space and its a friendly deal, then you pull the trigger. obviously if we are even contemplating it Gibbs likes the guy and agrees with me that our Center play/talent level is inadequate at the present time.

    Where did you get this? My understanding is that he is just the opposite a typical ZBS OL who is techincal and quick, but has some issues with holding the point of attack.

    In college, I had opportunity to watch him. He was a "push forward" type of player. He had a superlative supporting OL. Last year at Denver, their OL was not the force of past, and he did not appear to be a dominance in the center. His foot work to me seemed somewhat mechanical and awkward. At 6'5", I would like to ask especially Vinny (but anyone is welcome to respond) if he feels that height would be something that hinders him at the center position. Classically you want someone who can take up space and is relatively low to the ground. Are these qualifications less important/unimportant in the smooth running ZBS. Greg Eslinger, before his injury was thought to be Denver's center of the future. He has a more prototypical height of 6'3".

    Well the height issue with Centers isnt necessarily because it hinders them as much as it does the QB that is trying to see over them. That is one of the primary reasons that you dont see tall centers. If he knows how to use his leverage correctly his height shouldnt be too much of an issue from the position stand point.

    Lets hope Matt can see over his head:cool:

    The Texans continue to pick through the leaves. Unfortunately, the healthy ones are still on the tree.

    I am not really sure where you are going with this comment. I would maybe understand it if we werent targeting a 3rd year player that has been tendered by Denver and was their starting Center last year.

    Now if we were discussing a 30+ year old, oft injured RB I would agree. :shades:

    Another Center the Texans have looked at, John Wade, is listed at 6'5". Doesn't seem to be an issue with the Texans.

    I think Schaub is 6'5" too. If an OLineman is blocking at his full height, it wouldn't be for long because he'd be knocked on his butt.
