      Awesome, now maybe I'll draft Houston's D!
      I do not like Brian Kelly as a coach.

        • Texans put him on IR. Lost rookie season for the big guy.

          • It happens. Josh Chapman was IR'd by the Colts his rookie year and has been a stud this year, his 3rd year. NTs take time. Nix is going to tear it up in the NFL. No doubt.

                    • Entire NFL's a MASH unit.
                      I sometimes wonder if/why we don't sit down with recruits, show them the NFL injury lists every week, and remind them in no uncertain terms that their pro career probably won't last more than three or four years and to get a real degree.

                        I'm 100% sure ND does that.

                              Well, they should do it more. And with the parents. And then again. The idea that even elite recruits can rely on any sort of sustained career in the NFL is laughable. Even early-round draft picks get a signing bonus and then are left to pray their knees, shoulders and brains hold up.

                                  Wow... A 3-4 defense with Watt and Clowney is silly enough. Add Wilfork and Irish Chocolate rotating the middle. Holy cow.

                                                • Hopefully last year was another eye opening experience for him and he can get back on track. From what I read they were fairly disappointed last year, regardless of injuries.

                                                            It does if he's not committed to the game. There hasn't been many positives out there about his time in Houston. Poor work ethical taking over again. Wish him the best but hope he can figure it out for a second time.

As long as he's not injured, he's got all the physical tools to be an NFL lineman. Let's hope this serves as the shot in the arm he needs to rededicate himself to the game.

I know there were weight concerns. He was still hovering up around 350 when his playing weight should have been closer to 330.

Always only played good when he wanted to or got mad. he should have been told to slim down for combine and agent work the 4/3 teams. hes got shiftiness for a 300lber when he wants to show it, 340ish meh its not for him.
