    Have to wonder if it isn't a dual purpose pick. Combine this with trade rumors. If Clowney wants to stay here vs being shipped to Cleveland (I know they're supposed to be better, but we hear that every year) maybe he shaves his requirement a bit.

    He needs to improve his anchor and eyes. If he's on the field early it will be in nickle and dime packages.

    He's a steal

    We actually drafted a player in 2019 that was supposed to have been draft higher........and not way lower.....Finally

    I had him on top of my list of 3-4 DE's that would be available by the time we got around to addressing that position

    A great looking prospect, for a position of need, job well done

    WELCOME TO HOUSTON CHARLES

    They drafted him to rush the passer from the inside on sub packages.

    He said he wore No. 7 in HS because of Jadeveon Clowney and No. 90 in college because of him. 'It's crazy I get to work with him now.'

    Very happy with this pick in the 5th.

    I'm a UT homer (spent 8 gruelling years of my life there), so my judgement is clouded.

    If he learns how to use those long arms he will be dangerous.

    Agreed. Hopefully as he adds strength and Weaver coaches him up he can develop into a more full time player at 5 tech. But year 1 he's a situational interior rusher.

    Man, I watched the emotional response vid and if Texans need someone that will give everything he's got, they found him.

    I did not know !
    I'm a huge Texans & NFL fan but don't watch much college ball or even follow closely some area teams like UT or the Aggies so I'd not even herd of this guy. Fact is the only draftees I knew anything about were the two tackles we took but Iv'e checked out this guy some and he seems like a clear third round value so good job Mr Gaine.

    I liked John Harris reaction when the pick came in, “ forgot he was still on the board, wow, this is a great pick” or something to that effect.

    Always loved his player evaluations him and a Lance back in the day on 1560 lol now look both have moved up the boards themselves :clap:

    We we're all concentrating on DBs and RBs, and the other positions got lost. Similar to the 3rd round pick, where no one was thinking TE. A lot like the Reid pick, last year. "Justin Reid is still on the board? WTF?"

    I remember Harris having a nuclear meltdown when the Texans drafted Brown. We all have our opinions and even the ones getting paid to make these decisions get it wrong, often. Of course, Harris works for the machine now so I doubt he ever has a negative take ever again.

    He wasn't real happy when the Texans passed on Reggie Bush, either.

    We’ve all evolved a bit I would say, I was firmly in the draft Vince Young camp :vincepalm:

    The fact that he fell so much is kind of a red flag to me. Sounds like he's a good athlete but sucks at dealing with change of direction

    Kinda like Nix. Or that other dude we got from UT, thought he was a steal. Didn't do nothing.

    I’m really excited to see Omenihu along with the UDFA NTs Albert Huggins and Javier Edwards going into training camp/preseason. You just know they are going to be put in the best position to succeed with Weaver coaching them up and learning from guys like JJ, Reader and (hopefully) Clowney.
