Texans Cuts Tracker: Texans 53 Man Roster Deadline 3pm CT Saturday
After months of waiting, the Texans selected Jadeveon Clowney with the number one overall pick.
Former Rams GM Charley Armey joined The Triple Threat to talk about what it’s like to be in the war room during the draft. He said he thinks the Texans should draft Johnny Manziel without hesitation. Armey says Clowney is only a franchise player when he wants to and would therefore be a risky choice for the Texans.
Houston (SportsRadio 610) – Kareem Jackson joined In The Loop with Nick Wright and John Lopez to discuss this weeks upcoming draft. He had no specific insight into the Texans plans but had some very interesting […]
Evan Silva, Senior Editor at Roto World, joined the B-Straw And Pauly G Show to talk about the up coming draft. He said that the only thing that is certain is that nothing is certain in these pre-draft weeks where there are so many rumors swirling around. Silva isn’t sure that Clowney is a sure thing and he doesn’t think the Texans will take him unless they are sure about him.
David James, Open Door Sports Consulting, joined The B-Straw and Pauly G Show to discuss who the Texans will draft. He said he saw it coming that the Texans would let Gary Kubiak go. James is not as high on Clowney as high on him as a lot of people. He thinks that O’Brien might be looking at more of a long term solution at quarterback. He thinks trading a later pick for Ryan Mallet or Kirk Cousins would be a bad move because the Texans have Fitzpatrick already.
Tonight the guys hit the road and went to Columbia, South Carolina and Augusta. First they talked to Josh Kendall, “The State”, on Jadaveon Clowney’s Pro Day. Kendall said that even with the question marks he would take Clowney as the first pick because he is just that impressive. Then they went to Savannah to talk to Seth Harp of Sports Radio 102.1 on the Masters and Tiger Woods. Harp talked about how his guess is as good as anyone else’s as to who will come out victorious in this mix.
South Carolina defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward joined The Triple Threat to talk all things Jadeveon Clowney.
Scott Hood of GameCockCentral.com joined The Triple Threat to talk about Jadeveon Clowney’s pro day.
Orlando Alzugaray, 640 Sports, joined The B-Straw and Pauly G Show to discuss the Chris Clemons signing. Alzugaray is not high on the new Texan. He says he might be good for competition but thinks it would be a bad idea for the Texans to start him. He also thinks the Texans should draft Clowney because having him with Watt would be a huge boost. He thinks they could go with Mack but Clowney would really be to their best advantage.
Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports, joined Ted Johnson and Will Grubb to talk about Jadeveon Clowney. He disagrees with John McClain who doesn’t believe Clowney will fit in with the Texans system. Wilson says the only negative on Clowney, the time he sat out of drills, has been way overblown. However he is leaning towards thinking the Texans will take Blake Bortles with the first pick.
