http://www.examiner.com/x-778-Houst...test-jack-of-all-trades-Casey-at-long-snapper Is there anything James Casey can't do? We all knew this talented athlete from Azle, Texas could play tight end and H-back. As a quick aside, Azle is right next to Arp (birthplace of legendary basketball coach and most egregious Basketball Hall of Fame oversight Guy V. Lewis) as one of my all time favorite names of Texas towns. Now, back to Casey. Some of us were reminded (while others may have discovered for the first time) how well he can throw the ball during his Pro Day at Rice University a couple of weeks ago. He was a baseball pitcher after all. Wildcat anyone? Now we come to find out that our very own Texans have tested Casey's skills at long snapper. This latest revelation came to me while reading Entry 4 of Casey's Draft Diary on the NFLPA website. "The Texans have also asked me to deep snap for them," said Casey. "I did it at the Combine and was the backup deep snapper at Rice. I look at it as one more thing I can do to help a team win games." Casey was one of fifteen local college players invited to work out at the Texans training facility yesterday. So if you're keeping score, that would be tight end, H-back, slot receiver, wideout, fullback, quarterback and now ... long snapper James Casey to you. That does it. I'm sold. It's just too bad the Texans don't have an extra second round pick because that's where Casey is likely to go. I still see the Texans a bit more needy on defense and at running back, despite some of the recent free agent acquisitions. The Texans currently own picks 15, 46, and 77 in the draft and considering other needs, I just can't see them spending their second (#46) on Casey. If the Texans were able to pick up an extra draft pick in the late second or early third via trade, then it would be easier to take a flyer on him. Although you know Coach Kubiak likes his tight ends and fullbacks. And when you have a guy as versatile as Casey doubling as a long snapper, that frees up a valuable roster spot instead of staffing it with a one trick pony. Casey also had a chance to show off his blocking skills for the scouts at his Pro Day - skills that are essential to his success in the NFL. "The Texans tight ends coach put me through some blocking drills," said Casey. "Its hard to judge how well you block on a blocking dummy, but I thought I did really well." I'm sure he did.
