    WOW! That may look simple but requires uncharacteristic fluidity and body control even for a typical pro athlete- imagine how much better he will be at 100 percent - Caserio seemed to be accurate by indicating Stingley is a generational CB talent just on the eye test

    I’m very excited about his potential- I always wanted a elite CB that is rare , so here’s hoping that does indeed happen

    I seem to remember hearing that in the top of the draft you find your elite QB’s, LT’s, DE’s, CB’s, and WR’s. Not saying you can’t find such players later in the draft, but the talent can be unmistakably elite in some guys by draft time.

    From what I’ve read about Stingley, he seems like he is going to be a bonafide shutdown cornerback. And I can’t remember the Texans ever having one of those! I know Danta Robinson was a good one, but he wasn’t a shutdown corner.

    I’d be lying if I wasn’t extremely excited about seeing Stingley completely take away an entire side of the field.

    A J Buoye probably had the best season for a corner for us.

    Was JoJo a shut down corner? Dont remember. Buoye was good with the Texans, but didn't become great until that 1 year with the Jags.

    Picked #3 in the draft he better be a shutdown corner, and since he was chosen over Sauce Gardner, he needs to be better than Sauce or the pick will be questioned. Tried to watch him in preseason game #2, but really not enough there to form an opinion either way though he did have the one pass deflection. By now the staff should know. The rest of us will have to wait til’ the reg

    What is this madness? You actually have to watch 1st string players play in actual games against other 1st string players?
