The next few weeks here on State of the Texans we will be doing some draft profiles of some particular players who could possibly fit into the Texans plans. We are not going to try to piece together scouting reports, but we enlist help of bloggers who actually cover the respective player and their school. In this installment we look at the massive nose tackle from the Memphis Tigers, Dontari Poe. We get help from John Martin from the TigerAuthority.com a site devoted to the Memphis Tigers. We discuss the man and myth known as Dontari Poe, and look to see if…

The next few weeks here on State of the Texans we will be doing some draft profiles of some particular players who could possibly fit into the Texans plans. We are not going to try to piece together scouting reports, but we enlist help of bloggers who actually cover the respective player and their school. Our first draft profile starts with Arizona Wildcats Senior wide receiver Juron Criner. We get help from Kevin Zimmerman who blogs for Arizona Desert Swarm, a SB Nation blog dedicated to the Wildcats. We ask Kevin some question about Criner and get a better idea of what type of player…
Arian Foster shows off his dance moves on Sunday. There is a reason why he is a fan favorite here in Houston, and bringing him back should be priority #1. Watch Foster as he breaks it down, and you see why he can do things on the field. See if he has the right moves.
Nike who is taking over the NFL’s uniforms and clothing have already released the gloves for this upcoming 2012 year, they will debut during this years Pro Bowl.
If you read our Top 10 prospects for the Houston Texans last week, we covered 10 players who could possibly help the Texans during the 2012 season. Of course it is all contingent if the Texans draft them, but our list is players who in our minds could provide some help to an already deep Texans roster. Also, you will find some players we have added who proved to be a few other players who we highlighted during the beginning of the week, and stood out during Saturday’s game. The game is very basic in terms of offense and defense,…
CBS Rapid Reports said that today at the Senior Bowl, Senior Texas A&M Aggies wide receiver Jeff Fuller was scheduled to meet with Houston Texans General Manager Rick Smith. That interview was cancelled by Smith so he could fly to Hawaii so he could join the Texans coaching staff at the Pro-Bowl for the weekend. This was an interesting tidbit considering the struggles Fuller has had at the Senior Bowl and during his Senior year at College Station.
Today Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips was named the Sporting News 2011 Coordinator of the Year, only the 32 coaches and executives from that group voted for coach of the year, coordinator of the year and executive of the year. This was a no-brainer to Texans fans, especially after what he did for the Texans defense in 2011, turning them into the top-tier defense in the NFL.
The Houston Texans were well represented in this years 2011 USA Today’s All Joe team, and the Texans even had the All-Joe’s “Capitan” of the team. All the players on the list have not been selected to the Pro Bowl and are considered the players who have flown under the radar. It was good to see some Texans get some national attention and some respect.
Once again Mike and Pat dive into the Senior Bowl and talk about options for the Houston Texans coming up in the 2012 draft. The two cover the first three days of the Senior Bowl and give their thoughts on a variety of topics and players. Enjoy.
