    Lolololol, I want what his parents were smoking back when he was born. Some athletes have ridiculous names but they become athletes because in the corporate world. They would be punchlines.

    His father chose it because Mister abbreviated is MR, something his father determined would stand for "Mentally Ready.":tiphat:

    I agree. He strikes me as another Texans diamond in the rough. I'd like to see what he can do in a real game.

    I liked how he looked at Fla St.

    A little undersized, but he was always around the ball. (Good speed)

    Tex Seminole can give us a scouting report.

    He may have played around 225 at Florida State but NFL Draft Scout has him at 6'3" 242 lbs. That's at least as big as Lawrence Taylor in his prime.

    Brad Meester who ironically enough is the starting center for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    If his parents are not born Americans it may have been a cultural confusion.

    My brother in law's legal first name is Master because of a confusion between his parents and the nursing staff.

    I could see why that would happen in a country more directly British in culture than America. Many American Black families, attempt to name kids something truly unique for a variety of reasons.

    More broadly he is from Houston, and for those who think we take the safe route only, he does have an "arrest" and bunches of injury in his background.

    He's gonna need to play. Sharpton definitely spelled Ryans and Dobbins looks like nothing more than a teams guy. Here's your shot big guy.

    Both Mister & Derrell went undrafted. measureables typical of tweener classification but both can work way into the right situations in NFL. I hate to use a word like downgrade but you can address LB with late round & yes even undrafted prospects @ LB. Mister is your typical SAM, pass rushing/cover LB while Derrell is an undersized SAM, not a WILL. As both transition into Wade Phillips 3-4 both should thrive in different ILB roles. Good football players, good football moves by front office :)
