    Kelemente

    Fulton

    Henderson

    I think most of us agree Fulton proved to be a true starter. I personally don't know what to think of Henderson after three snaps, but the Texans have doubled down on him (at the same time drafting two guys who could replace him).

    Davenport. I think he's still developing. I don't think he'll develop into an All-Pro, but I'm optimistic he can develop into a starter.

    But yeah. Even though there were times Watson held the ball too long, far too often there was immediate penetration.

    It will be interesting to see how the Texans man the OL. 1st rounder Howard, 2nd rounder Scharping, 2nd rounder Martin (who I've already given up on), 3rd rounder Rankins, 4th rounder Davenport, Fulton, Henderson, Kelemente...

    Trent Brown is starting at RT. He was an avg LT.

    You will find that most LT's were drafted in the 1st or 2nd rd.

    Rockets making moves/Astros about to make moves/Texans who's their GM again? The difference when an org isn't lead by Cletus.

    Cleutus was INFLUENCED.......... he ain't that dumb to fire Gaine ( i hope) . He was told sure fire candidate was ready to go. I don't blame cal one bit (BOB and his cronies have been playing games since he got here). But if he does not stand up forthis franchise next season...... then he is a weak owner. All I can say.

    Actually three if you count Rankins unless you think he's a guard only ?
    So you still have hope for Davenport to become a competant starting LT ?
    And you'e had it with Martin, so who would you like to see them play at center ?

    To satisfy my curiosity I've been meaning to ask you SteelB, where did you come up with the handle of Cletus ? A nickname you've coined yourself for C. McNair or is there another source ?

    Or something else happened

    He is a weak owner, a strong owner would've let God'ell decide tampering and paid the price if found guilty. Screw Kraft/BB

    Then it's not a big deal we didn't sign Trent Brown the RT, not selected in the first round to a huge multiyear contract?

    I think Rankin was drafted as a LT prospect. Not to replace Henderson per se, but it wouldn't shock me if he does.

    While competent I hope he starts only if he's better than our other options at this time in their development. I hope they drafted Howard in the first to be our LT of the future. But if he's not ready this year to play LT, I'm fine with that.

    This is Davenport's third season. It's his make or break season. Coming from his small school background, this year compares to the second season of a prospect coming out of a major program.

    Like to see Fulton taking snaps at center.

    The Texans are very OB: mediocre.

    Well guys, it's only a few more weeks until the first preseason game. Better firm up your predictions and excuses now.

    9-7/7-9 if they stay reasonably healthy.

    They will remain mediocre until they actually fix the OL, particularly the LT position. I dont expect much from the small school OT's this yr.
