    6’ 180 lb safety from Washington State. 3 year solid contributor. Was projected day 2 2020 draft pick before being ruled ineligible this year. Great man cover guy with decent tackling skills. Has trouble getting off blocks against the run, but had 6 career int’s at Washington state. Ran a 4.47 at his pro day

    This guy has talent and would fit as a slot cb as well. Supposedly 26 teams are looking at him, so he won't be a Texan.

    We should know in about 5 minutes if anyone was drafted in the 3rd.

    Round 3 no picks. This round and next round should be where this guy goes.

    Round 4, no picks.

    If Texans wanted him I believe they should have taken him there BECAUSE he should get drafted here in the 5th.

    Cards took him. Like I said. He was not going to make it to our pick. Maybe we weren't interested.

    Well the Texans don't have a GM so probably didn't even know the supplemental draft was going on right now... :kitten:

    I wonder if the Texans will bring in any of the remaining free agents.

    Devonaire Clarington TE who committed to Texas in 2015 but academics never allowed him to stick. Transferred and finished at a CC (6-6, 250, big target and only 23. Could see what he has in camp)

    Marcus Simms WR WVU appears to have some wheels but seems like more of a possession receiver. Seems like a solid prospect. 4.5 forty, 6.91 3 cone drill (would have finished for 6th among receivers at combine) and a 4.19 short shuttle which would have finished 11th at the combine for receivers. Has been arrested for 2 DUIs and a marijuana possession charge.

    Shyheim Cullen ILB Syracuse - 6'1, 230, seems undersized and no real game film. Athletic numbers at his pro day but nothing else for me to go on.

    Bryant Perry DB - Very little tape on him but looks raw. Not to mention the level of play is a question.

    I would expect all of them to at least get a tryout with a team with Clarington and Simms having the only real NFL potential.

    No. Talent trumps morals with you. You would sign Ray Rice and Tyreek Hill if you thought they would help you win.

    Yes

    I'm not the NFL's morality police.

    God'ell lets these guys play and you cant let them beat you. There's a reason K.C. is a favorite to win a SB.
