    Yeah, well I just went there looking for the weights and measurements of the o-lineman and they ain't up yet. So far the NFLn and .com coverage stinks.

    I'm interested in Aaron Maybin and Everette Brown's weigh in numbers. Supposedly Brown has been losing some weight. I'm not one to think that these guys weights are the end all be all... but I do think it plays as a factor. Getting lighter isn't going to help their case to be picked as a 4-3 DE.

    Its out there because I ran across a "weigh-in" # of 335 for 'Bamas Smith on a Rams message Board, but I dunno where the source is / So far I don't think NFL.Com has posted this info ?

    Figured it might be time to start one. Feel free to post any and all news items, rumors, tid bits about who the Texans are watching, seen interested in, or are following here.

    I don't see how he fits in with what we are doing on the line, but it sounds like we did talk to him.

    Haha, not a bad idea!

    I think Johnson has potential to be a really really good guard. I don't know that he would fit on this team though. If he ends up in the right blocking system he could be great as a RG.

    He needs to lose another 30-35 lbs. and work on his conditioning and footwork, but right now I think he's a probably a 3rd round pick at best.

    I heard on the radio the Texans were looking at some guy out of Canada. Don't know his name or position.

    I found an article, DT Vaughn Martin from Western Ontario. 6'3" 328 pounds, but the article says he only had 20.5 tackles and 1.5 sacks...

    Praise from Mayock for Steve Slaton. Said his performance in the off tackle drill elevated him 2 rounds in Mayocks mind.

    He was talking about what drill he likes to watch most for running backs. He mentioned last year he was able to watch them all go through the Off-Tackle Drill.

    Its where they take the handoff from the QB, accellerate over some bags and around cones and then face off against a coach with a big bag. The coach is supposed to lean the bag one way or the other, and the RB has to respond by cutting and accelerating around the cone in the opposite way the coach tipped the bag.

    He said something along the lines of Slaton having the best vision, cut, and acceleration when it came time to face off vs. the coach.

    Basic info- He's 6'0" 200 lbs and is generally considered a mid to late-rounder in the draft.
