    was sort of hoping Martin would not have a nickname that had anything to do with K(anything) Mart.

    I noticed that other teams are having rookie camps.

    Any info on why the Texans aren't having a camp for the rooks.

    If its been posted elsewhere I missed it.

    The Texans will have 10 OTAs: May 21-22, May 24, May 29-31 and June 4-7. Their mandatory three-day mini-camp will be June 12-14.

    Rookies, including eight draft picks and a reported 21 undrafted free agents, will report to Reliant on May 13.

    “We’ll spend that whole net week with them preparing them for OTAs, so we’ll get a good five days in,” Kubiak said. “What I do at the back end of the OTAs with our mini-camp is I like to kind of dedicate that to our younger players, now that they know what we’re doing. They’re up to speed offensively and defensively, and our scouts and everybody in the organization can get a better feel of evaluating who can come help us come fall time.”

    Kubiak said the first thing the Texans do with rookies is dissect how far along they are physically.

    “All players are different,” Kubiak said. “There are some guys way ahead, and some guys need to really start from scratch. That’s our job as coaches right now, to figure that out as they come in. You’ve got to make sure that you don’t just throw those guys right in with your vets. I mean, our guys work, boy. I tell you, Cedric works the heck out of ‘em, and we’ve got a team that’s really impressive out there right now, in great physical condition.

    “So it’ll be a rude awakening for ‘em, but I think that’s what that first week is for. They kind of figure it out. We get ‘em in the locker room, they get to go sit down next to Brian Cushing, J.J. Watt, Matt Schaub and get all that stage fright out of the way and kind of start to fit in, and then we get into OTAs where they can relax a little bit and start to figure out what’s going on so that they’re ready to compete once training camp comes.”

    If this is not the first time we went big for linemen I would be suprised, That being said I am exstatic about a 300+ pound lineman and also about Posey, better yet the whole damn draft went good for me lets get ready for some football.

    I agree, so in order to rectify this, we need a new nickname for him pronto!
    I recommend: Steel Blue Light Special!

    Kmart was the first retailer to introduce the blue light special, so make it Texan and voila! A new nickname! :D

    Huh?

    Duane Brown 320LBs
    Wade Smith 310LBs
    Antoine Caldwell 311LBs
    Rashad Butler 317LBs

    Only Chris Myers was under the 300LBs range(289LBs), and even Eric Winston and Mike Brisiel were at 300LBs.

    Roy Wiilams WR Cowboys, of course.

    Interesting that Mercy-less took DeMeco's number.

    Yep, he probably wanted #58 since he was #85 in college, so he took the closest to it.

    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    indeed.

    But at least I can take off the "RYANS" and still have a relevant jersey.

    The only LB numbers he could have taken were 90 and 59. So, either way...
