    Is a great runner - very fast for a big guy and has some good wiggle to find ways through traffic.
    Just has to tidy up the fumbles, work on his blocking and catching which no doubt he will.
    Will be an instant upgrade at RB #2.

    Very reminiscent of the Cowboys tactic to pair up two young gun backfield buddies to grow together.
    Hope it works out even half as well.

    Considering the O-line I don't understand the pick but I'm glad this gets rid of Blue.

    Seems like it's a weak draft for OL and taking 1 in round 2-3 would be a reach. That being said I sure hope it's a position they address in the rest of the draft.

    I don't want to jinx and can't believe I'm saying this, but I feel like this draft has potential to be one of our best.

    And we're only 3 picks in.

    I really like Foreman. I think he has a chance of being a star in the NFL.

    I have a couple of concerns. He had a stress fracture in his foot, that's not a good thing. He had an absolutely killer season, but it was against the Big 12. The Big 12 is known for not playing defense.

    He looked like a Superman running through Baylor and Texas Tech. I'm interested to see how he can do against NFL talent.

    What I heard is that this is a weak top of the draft for OL. There is a great deal of middle round OL talent in this draft. OL talent available at the Texans third round will also be there in the fourth and fifth rounds. No reason to reach in the third for what you can easily get later.

    They need to draft a 6'6 fat ass OL to protect the running game.

    His foot better not linger. That's my big worry with him.

    When Bill O'Brien was asked about him, he said he was fully healthy

    Oh well if bill obrien says someone is healthy he definitely is lol. It's not like he's ever done that and then handed over the podium to media relations people who told reporters about major injuries haha.

    True. I took it differently because he said Foreman said he was healthy. But he still could be making it up

    He probably is heathy because I would hope they wouldn't draft a guy that their doctors actually thought was unhealthy, but obrien is just a flat out liar when it comes to injuries. I wouldn't believe him about anything having to do with health. Well, not that I wouldn't believe him, rather that I would just disregard it as empty words. He doesn't even lie to get an advantage, he lies just because he wants to. He literally told a room full of reporters that someone was fully healthy following practice and then walked out so the media relations people could give the injury list revealing a major injury to the guy lol.

    [Get off my lawn]

    So an apostrophe in the middle of a word is supposed to indicate a full glottal stop, right (except in contractions or posessives)?

    That makes him "Duh - Onta" in two sylables?

    Stop the apostrophe abuse in names. It is completely out of control. I'm sure it makes you feel like your child is special and unique or something, but it is more than pretty decoration. Punctuation alters pronunciation. It's almost as stupid as adding a silent letter "L" to the end of your kid's name.
