Pretty good $$$$.
Wonder what Higdon got?
They must really like these guys = did their homework on 'em.
I really enjoy the research and good information you guys are putting out on our UDFA's. Thank you!
I can't explain it, but as much as I enjoy the draft talk, I always seem to enjoy the UDFA stuff more. Just like this year. You guys do the work, I have the fun.
Higdon reminds me a bit of Maurice Jones Drew. Just his compact frame and running style. I think he's a lock to make the team if he stays healthy.
He is known for having great balance as a runner and is an arm tackle breaker.
He was ranked in the 5th, but like so many good players went undrafted.
I figured it out. The UDFA thread is
loaded with excitement and fun speculation, quite unlike the draft related threads which are full of negativity, complaining, argument, 1.23 dysfunction and OB is terrible and on and on. Life has been hard lately, so this thread allows some escape. I like it here, plus I don't have the time to research the UDFA's. It's fun to dream again. I don't have anything intelligent to contribute here, at least not yet, so I'll just leave it at Thank you.
What went with Travis Homer, a RB I hoped we would get?
6th round pick to Seattle.
Gaine on veteran safety Jahleel Addae and undrafted rookie receiver Johnnie Dixon.
Joining Texans ‘a dream come true’ for rookie Johnnie Dixon
Must have been John Perry's guy.
Possibly - but Texans need depth at receiver and even though he is an UDFA, his upside is extremely high.
Kick returner and gunner on punt team.
Very keen to see how this guy develops - I am betting Vyncent Smith will be out of a job or on the PS.

Hopefully they 4-5 good yrs out of Dixson before his knee goes out.
The guy is really talented.
Don't consider that realistic with what we know about his situation..
The way Gaine is signing players (some w/health risks) to one year contracts seems to be an effort to provide incremental improvements/ upgrades. More or less stop gap players for short term improvement.
His stated preference is to draft players for the long term.
He really does seem to have a plan but it will not be fully implemented fast enough for some of our fans / posters.
I can wait, it ain't like I have somewhere else to go.
I might feel different if I were spending my kids inheritance on tickets, pom poms, foam fingers and twenty dollar sandwiches.
It is unfortunate about his knees but he still had moments even with them like that.
If he gets 5 or 6 snaps a game that may help him. Otoh, if he is called into service at receiver due to injuries, he may just have to have injections or whatever it is they do.
Hope he doesn't ruin his golden years chasing the big bucks while young, although that horse may have already bolted.
Our very own WF said Higdon has inconsistent vision. I will take his word on this.
Love Dixon despite his knees and think he has the ability to be the guy who replaces WFV when he gets hurt again and the offense wont miss a beat.
Huggins really didn't play much but more than held his own in the NC game.
Johnson will make the team and be a major ST's guy while learning the NFL. Love this guy.
See who says BG doesn't spread that McNair coin round, he's going thru their money like there's no tomorrow !
