    He was an intern on Austin Sports Radio last summer and they gave him a ton of air time - guy's not just a strong athlete, he's got a good head on his shoulders. I like seeing that he's going to be a sponge between Clowney and Watt...bodes well for us.

    One more combine comparison on the night for our Texans draft (see Lonnie Johnson and Tytus Howard threads respectively). After Houston took Omenihu I went to look at one recent and one “superb” comparison from the past decade. These are the two notable names to compare Omenihu as he develops. Chandler Jones and Deatrich Wise Jr. This was absolutely a RAC endorsed pick.

    Charles Omenihu - Texans - 5.161
    Height 6' 5"
    Weight 280 lbs
    Arm Length 36"
    Hand Size 9 3/8"
    40 Yard Dash 4.92s
    Vertical Jump 36.5"
    Broad Jump 115"
    3-Cone Drill 7.48s
    20 Yard Shuttle 4.36s
    Bench Press 15 reps(unofficial non combine)

    Deatrich Wise Jr. - Patriots - 4.131
    Height 6' 5"
    Weight 274 lbs
    Arm Length 35⅝"
    Hand Size 10½"
    40 Yard Dash 4.92s
    Vertical Jump 33"
    Broad Jump 125"
    3-Cone Drill 7.07s
    20 Yard Shuttle 4.36s
    Bench Press 22 reps

    Chandler Jones - Patriots - 1.21
    Height 6' 5"
    Weight 266 lbs
    Arm Length 35½"
    Hand Size 9¾"
    40 Yard Dash 4.87s
    Vertical Jump 35"
    Broad Jump 120"
    3-Cone Drill 7.07s
    20 Yard Shuttle 4.38s
    Bench Press 22 reps

    Let him learn from Weaver AND Watt. JJ uses his arms and hands as good as anyone I've ever seen. It's like he is two moves ahead of most O linemen. If Charles O can learn JJ's moves, we'll really have something. While we're at it, let's get Ejiofor in on some of that good technique. Throw in solid work from the Texans S&C folks and we'll be giving other QB's less time to work against our DB's.
    Can't explain it, I'm just feeling optimistic tonight. As much as I liked Christian Covington, he seems to have peaked. Time to let these young guys to grow into their potential.

    I had really high hopes for Covington and Carlos Watkins for that matter.
    I thought Cov had been released? I could be wrong.

    Covington is now a Dallas Cowboy.

    PFF was even higher on Omenihu than Jeremiah, as he was taken 86 spots after his ranking of No. 75.

    Interesting how highly he’s valued. More film I watch gives me unease which is why I can see why he fell to Texans in 5th. I see the big splash plays he makes but also see times when he’s a liability. Not sure if he’ll be able to make enough plays in the NFL to make up for times when he’ll be thoroughly beaten. NFL teams hate having a guy that can be a liability on the field unless they make up for it with big time plays sprinkled in.

    For that type of player think 4/5 round range is a good risk/reward spot for him. And luckily we’ve got a heck of a coach in Weaver to develop him.

    Joker you are one of several, maybe many posters who seems to have a high regard for Dline coach Weaver, so just the opposite opinion of the guy coaching Texans players on the other side of the los ? Do I read that correctly ?

    Correct. I think Weaver is a rising star and has a pedigree now having developed a late round pick (Reader) into a quality starter along with street FA Blackson and UDFA Brandon Dunn being solid contributors. Covington also in that solid contributor bucket. Think he has something to do with Watt/Clowney’s success as well obviously but developing other players into viable NFL players with little investment is the bigger feather in his cap imo.

    I don’t understand al the reader love. He didn’t have a great year. In fact I would say he was disappointing.

    He indeed didn't have a great year. But he did have a very good year, being ranked as the 34th best defensive lineman by PFF.

    Depends on your expectations. Wilfork didn't have 'great' years here either, but he was loved by most
