    thats an amazing find. He sounds like a real talent who should fly way under the radar. Deffinitly a late round possibility. I hope he has gotten his life straightened out. Good luck to that young man, and may he wreak havoc for the Texans in the future.

    He could make a good 4-3 end if we switch. I think I've seen him listed at sizes between 6-4 250 and 6-6 280. Not tackle or linebacker material it seems.

    I know he got into some trouble and hopefully he has fixed that part of his life. I was trying to find some stats on how he did when he was with oregon and if he played at all but yahoo,didn't come up with much

    That would be one big linebacker.

    what kind of trouble? winston justice trouble? clarrett trouble? or marcus vick trouble?

    i think i read that he has matured and stayed away from trouble while at JuCo.

    I think he would be a very good DT, but could easily play DE. He would have to spend some time at the bottom of the charts, but he could quickly work his way into the rotation depending on what personal moves we make this offseason.

    Walker is getting old and Payne is getting old. If we can get this guy in the 7th or even 6th, he'd be a good pick.

    We may not even have to draft him, but I would prefer us draft him than let him chose a team via FA.

    he deffinitly seems well worth the gamble. I would rather us draft him as opposed to us having to try and sign him through FA. He could easily turn out to be a steal, he has all the physical tools, and assming he has matured enough, seems to posess a football mind.

    Briging up this thread from way back, but I found his pro day stats. He worked out at Grossmont College, and:


    GROSSMONT COLLEGE: MARCH 29
    Player Position Gil's comments
    Workouts were held at the Home Depot Center in California. 20 teams were present, including the Raiders defensive staff. Thirty players from assorted schools worked out outdoors on FieldTurf in very good weather.

    Roderkus Wright DE Wright (6-4, 275) ran his 40s in 5.03 and 4.95 seconds. He also ran the short shuttle in 4.70 and had 22 bench presses.

    Got this from NFL.com
