    I did a quick search and saw no thread dedicated to Kyle Wilson so I figured I'd start one. A lot of people have us taking him in mocks so I'll post what I know.

    He played for Boise State, he did very well, and I can't find an official 40 time for him from the combine. He is smaller (>200lbs) but people love his hips :smooch: . He takes gambles a lot and has closing speed to make breaks on balls.

    Fill me in on the rest.

    Dunta is now gone & resolves this issue. if Kyle is available @ #20 this is who the Texans should target. He did not run @ the combine after lifting (did 25 reps to led WR's two more than DT McCoy) did interviews & measurements the following day deceided not to run due to some hamstring tightness. His Pro-Day I beleive is March 28th, should be well attended.

    How possible is it that he shoots up draft boards and overtakes Haden as #1CB?

    How possible is it that we get our pick of Haden, Wilson, or Earl Thomas when the Goodell announces the Houston Texans are on the clock?

    It's pants creaming time if we get one of those three in our secondary!!!

    I've had Haden as a lock to be a top 10 pick for awhile now... I wouldn't even hesitate to take him if he was available at 20. If Haden isn't available I would be happy with either Thomas or Wilson.

    Haden hurt himself with his poor 40 time. He needs a good pro-day.

    Haden ran a pedastrian 40 time for CB's,it was something like a 4.56,might of been 4.61 i cant remember but if thats the case,the dude has dropped out of the 1st imo,that is too slow.

    he hasn't dropped out of the first round. He's droped down some places but he is still going in the first. Dude is too talented to drop out of the first.

    He's got a lot of great game film to offset his bad combine performance.

    The thing is... he didn't look prepared for the combine. His technique in the 40 was terrible. He didn't do the drills well. Everyone expected him to eat that stuff up. I think HE expected to eat that stuff up without having to work very hard.

    So, the combine probably will be a wakeup call for him. He'll probably bust his ass getting ready for his pro-day like he should have busted his ass getting ready for the combine.

    But if he has a bad pro-day... who knows what's going to happen.

    Haden could run much faster if he improved his hip extensibility. He is a short strider. He should be able to run in the 4.4s

    I was really impressed with Ghee. Big guy that is very athletic

    I'm a big fan of this guy, he's had a great career at BSU. Oh by coincidence I'm actually wearing my BSU T-Shirt this morning - it's a bright orange (not
    burnt orange, not to worry UT).
    BTW you guys were lucky you didn't have to play BSU in the BCS this year,
    there's no shame in losing to 'Bama but there is to BSU, just ask the Sooners.

    couple things, Ryan is a beast & is going to make some team very happy, maybe its the Texans? In fairness, Kyle came over to help in run support & nobody is going to arm tackle this guy with a head of steam.

    you know what would be epic is if the Texans could trade up into the first for Ryan so the Texans could have both, why not? :snowday:

    I haven't seen a lot of Wilson, but in his bowl game this season he did not look very good at all. If I remember correctly he was thrown at 6 times, and allowed 4 receptions for 50+ yards. He also missed some big tackles.

    Now I'm not going to go all Vinny and say the guy is Petey Faggins waiting to happen over one game, but it does raise a little red flag for me.

    I was working & only got to see parts of the game. It would seem he held his man (KERLEY) scoreless only 65 yards no big deal probably in prevent mode since TCU struggled to run the ball. Still had a sack plus two break-ups & three tackles plus solid in punt returns. The defensive standout no doubt would not be Kyle but Daryl Washington, love to add his talent @ WILL for Texans.

    It will be interesting to see how he stacks up when all the numbers are published.

    Dunta Robinson combine performance
    5'10 & 5/8ths
    186 lbs
    40: 4.34
    20: 2.48
    10.1.52
    Bench: 15
    Vertical: 36
    Broad: 10'
    Shuttle: 3.75
    3-cone: 6.97

    He certainly passes the eyeball test.
