Saw this little snapshot over at the Texans site - Kubiak will have Colvin rush the passer from nickel, as well as N.D. Kalu and Chaun Thompson, allowing coaches to compare all three outside speed rushers. link It got me thinking. All three of these guys can't possibly make it. Do two make it? One? I'm just not sure. Going in I thought Colvin was a lock, but he hasn't shown me anything at all. Right now, I put him 3rd on my list out of those above. Thompson has been hurt off and on, and his play seemed spotty when I happened to notice it, but he is fast, young and can contribute on ST and still has upside. Kalu is older than Methusala, has no upside at all, and can't contribute on ST, but OTOH, he seems to be very motivated and has rushed the passer better than the other two thus far. Further complicating matters is that they are three totally different players. Kalu being the seasoned end, Thompson the LB coming off the edge on passing downs with many more LB responsibilities, and Colvin trying to make a switch from a 3/4 OLB, to a pass rushing end. Tomorrow will be absouletely vital to these three guys and should tell the tale on who stays and goes. I'm not really sure how to handicap this race, but my guess right now is that Colvin is cut, and we keep the other two. I think that will shock the casual fan, but that is my thought at the moment. Opinions?
