6'3" 220 with 4.4ish speed...now has not played football worth a spit.
To me that`s the perfect mr. irrelevant. A guy with exceptional size and speed that plays with an attitude but is really raw. Take a look at him, try to teach him to use his physical gifts. With his traits he could turn into a star - well he probably will be out of the league in 2 years, but still, this is a guy you absolutely should take a flyer on.
It beats a 5'10 safety that runs a 4.7 40 .
Wonder if he can return punts and kickoffs...
Beats a over the hill safety with 2 bad hips.
This guy will at least make the PS.
I need to watch him some more, but I think he has a chance to be more than Mr. IRRELEVANT.
I shall not vote since this is a prospect rather than instant help. I will say there are about 10 guys I would have picked instead of this guy. But he has nice measurables and hopefully we have good coaches.
i like his speed and his swagger. You never know
Sounds like cannon fodder for training camp. A fat C+ is what is deserved, IMO.
But Keo was a fifth round pick and shouldn't be irrelevant.
He's what a 7th round pick is really about. Just overflowing with athletic potential and perhaps a good coach like Romeo Crennel can bring it out.
I think he will be a good ST player. With a few years of experience, he might turns out to be a good S/LB as well.
Not many guys taken as the last pick even end up sticking in the NFL. So it doesn't really matter who they took here, it's probably a lost pick. But if so, you may as well take a guy with interesting athletic ability and see what happens.
He sounds like a good special teams gunner with good size and speed and what you'd be looking for at this position in the draft.
If he takes Keo off this roster, a plus selection.
@JaysonBraddock: The most talented Mr Irrelevant that I can remember. I expect him to make the 53. Ballentine is 6'3 220 runs 4.39 & has 33" arms. #Texans
@JaysonBraddock: Lonnie Ballentine has insane range, crazy size, speed vertical. So you're asking why he was there? Questionable angles & need to be physical
@JaysonBraddock: #Texans will turn Ballentine over to RAC and hope that Romeo can mold this Memphis Tiger like his former teammate, Poe a few years ago.
