    Is this the right forum to post possible UDFA's that the Texans should look at?

    Quadtrine Hill - FB Miami (FL)

    Has the ability to be very effective in Kubiak's system.

    Nealy QB from Texas State (good athlete, practice squad for a year or two).

    I'd love to see one of the big QBs left: Bruce Eugene from Grambling, Drew Olson from UCLA, or Barrick Nealy from Texas State. All three of them were big-time, big-play, mega productive QBs in college.

    Kai Parham didn't get drafted!?!?!?

    I would be calling him in a minute. As soon as the last pick was done I would be on the phone.

    You are not addressing needs with an UDFA. something like 5%-10% of these guys ever play a down a regular season game. That includes long-snappers, kickers and punters.

    5'-11" 3/4 205 4.64

    Summary: Called the best pure athlete in the Trojans' secondary, Walker disappointing 40-time at the Combine could affect his draft stock. He came on late in the year and showed enough improvement for a team to take a chance on molding him on the second day. PFW

    John Walker (6-0 3/8, 198) ran his 40s in 4.61 and 4.67. He also had a 39½-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-6 long jump, 4.25 short shuttle, and 6.87 three-cone drill. He was outstanding in position drills, and if anyone surprised the scouts with their position work, it was Walker.

    I almost forgot about Jai Lewis. He wasn't drafted either. I'd like to give him a shot at doing something.

    Rumor is Barrick Nealy is on the Vikings, if its true there should be a link soon.

    "They signed 17 rookies to free agent contracts, including the Gopher McKenzie and four receivers - Texas A&M's Jason Carter, Youngstown State's Kyle Smith, Southwest Texas State's Barrick Nealy and New Mexico's Hank Baskett.

    Their other signings: North Carolina State linebacker Oliver Hoyte, Jackson State offensive tackle Albert Stinson, Clemson fullback Steven Jackson, Texas Tech running back Taureen Henderson, Colorado punter John Torp, Wisconsin offensive lineman Jason Palermo, Kansas cornerback Charles Gordon, Utah State offensive tackle Donald Penn, Massachusetts cornerback Robert Cobb, Fresno State running back Wendell Mathis, Mississippi defensive end Jayme Mitchell and Washington defensive tackle Manase Hopoi."

    I still like RB Taurean Henderson from Texas Tech. He played in one of the all-star games, and he proved that he could run up the middle. We all know that he can catch the ball out of the backfield, and I just think he would be a good fit for the Texans.
