    Our good pal Warren DeLuca at www.HoustonProFootball.com takes a look at the Texans rookie free agents. Outstanding work as usual from Ric's fine staff of writers.

    Good read on some of the lesser known talent. I think that "The Kerk" has best shot of those listed to make the roster. The Texans appear to have a pretty good blueprint on taking rough talent and polishing it up to NFL standard. I have heard some good things about Pili...there are normally a couple "but's" attatched to the comments.

    What are your takes on the longshots that already have a history on the team? I am a JJ Moses fan but I can see the writing on the wall for him. I have seen several posts throughout the boards that have listed Derrick Armstrong as on the bubble...I don't know that much about him other than his athletic ability is very highly thought of by the players and some of the coaches and I believe he was a CFL standout. One of my blue collar favorites is Troy Evans, I have a soft spot for motivated special teamers that make the squad on hard work and attitude rather than pure physical talent...he is also reportedly on the bubble.

    I'd like to see Kendrick Starling on the field too when camp rolls up. He is supposed to have blazing speed.
