    These are a few of the small school guys I thought could translate well into the NFL. Late round picks-free agents mainly. I did not include the guys that went to the combine. I also took their best pro day time. I'm trying to find stats but some of them are giving me some trouble. I'll have them by late tonight hopefully.

    Strengths:
    Has great size...Knows how to use his big frame...Tough and strong...Has good hands...Displays excellent balls skills...Great leaper...Is not afraid to work the middle of the field...Hard worker with top intangibles...Was dominant at his level.

    Weaknesses:
    Did not play against elite competition...Is not very quick and doesn't play as fast as he times...Is not much of a deep threat...Is not a great blocker...Doesn't run great routes...Has some trouble off the line...Project who still needs some work.

    Notes:

    13. Chris Kuper, North Dakota
    6-4 3/8 310 5.15 7th round

    Strengths: Shows leverage and power when run blocking. Consistently gets to the linebacker level and hits moving targets. Works well when pulling and trapping. Can knock back defenders. Gets set quickly in pass protection. Mirrors and slides well.

    Weaknesses: Hasn't faced elite competition. Must strengthen lower body; could struggle against NFL bull rushers. Isn't overwhelming at the point of attack. Shows inconsistent technique and must improve footwork.

    Bottom line: Kuper needs a year or two to develop but could turn out to be a day 2 steal. Final grade: 4.2 (that's quality backup on the sporting news grading scale)

    Also, he was selected as the most athletic guard in this year's draft class.

    Most Athletic:
    Chris Kuper, North Dakota

    Has not seen big-time competition and his skills need polishing, but is an outstanding natural athlete.

    Cool. Sounds like he could be a good late round guy.

    I did only D prospects because thats where I think the Texans need the most help.

    The guys from my list that I think have a legit shot at the NFL level are Schabel, Anderson and Daniels. Maybe Cosgrove

    Schable-1.63 10 yd
    -6'3" 281lbs

    Anderson-1.67 10 yd
    -6'1 230lbs

    Daniels- Cant find 10 yd time
    -6'3" 248lbs

    Cosgrove- 1.66 10 yd
    -6'1 271lbs

    I was bored so I did the power rankings or what ever they are called where you add up the broad jump, vertical and bench reps. Some guys I could not do because they had incomplete numbers but here they are:

    Charlie Cosgrove 74.2
    AJ Schable- 69.1
    Jason Hunter-66.7
    Travis DeSisso- 62.5
    Torrence Daniels- 61.4
    Digger Anderson-58.9
    John DiGiogio- 56.61

    He's light and short. Could lead to injuries in the pros.

    saw the video he looks good, somewhat like a project similar to Chris McKenzie. He is a willing tackler, but not very good technique and in the couple of shots of his backpedal he does not stay over his feet well, but like I said a project, could be an interesting signing after the draft and could make the practice team. Question is can he return punts.

    Ok guys if you are going to list your prospects please put height and weight. BTW Sterling Green looks more like a SS Michael Boulware type project than an actual LB.
