    Stephen Houston

    Not sure if he'll translate well into the NFL, but he's got some homerun speed.  He runs a bit too high, IMO, so he;ll need to get lower if he wants to have a career in the NFL. But, an interesting prospect.

    Also, 3 cheers for Ivan Fears whose apparent recruiting sold Houston on coming here. Fears is constantly ignored by our fanbase.

    Pat's Fan lost in Jet Land

    thanx for pointing  him out

     

    How come I like these Udfas so much, the safety from Rutgers and justin jones?

    AND THEN Moore too.

    we had a lot of young kids last year, I see more this year

    I think he takes Bolden's place. Similar running styles, both good receivers.

    Houston appears to be stronger and has a little ore elusiveness. If Houston can play special teams, Boldens days could be numbered.

    Houston runs absolutely nothing like Bolden whatsoever.  Bolden runs much lower than that.  Houston runs high.  He won't make it if he thinks he'll have gaping holes like that where he can just run straight through.

    He has breakaway speed but that won't be enough.

    Take a look at that draft preview of Bolden. They look pretty darn similar to me.

    Well, sorry, just disagree here.  He can run.  But, he really lacks polish or feel through the line.   He looks nothing like an RB to me whatsoever when he runs. He almost looks like a big WR. I hope he progresses here, but he's literally nothing like Bolden to me at all.  Bolden at least runs through the line well and hits the hole quickly.

    This guy needs to get to the edge to be able to run well.

    We'll agree to disagree on this one and see how it turns out.

    I don't understand why many here undersell Bolden? If you are one to criticize injury, then I get it, the guy has been dinged up much of his time here. He has had some moments showing his ability when healthy however, and he can contribute to the back field. Also plays all 4 ST's.

    If BB wants to carry 5 including a FB/TE type (Devlin?) I feel one of those spots is Boldens if he is healthy

    I think he's the only one on the roster who doesn't have a fumble?

    These backs all look amazing on youtube highlights. He seems to have some speed and at 225, he has size. I want to see the film of him trying to get back to the LOS or squeezing out a couple of yards when there's no room, or grinding out four yards after getting hit, or pass blocking, or making a special teams tackle. The physical stuff.

    If I had to compare his running style to someone, maybe Terrell Davis. No, he's not going to be TDII, but style-wise he runs similar.

    Basically a straight ahead guy with decent size and speed for the position. I think he runs a little too high and he isn't going to make many people miss...don't think he has a lot of power either, but for where we got him he is a steal. Maybe if he spent a year on the practice squad working on his pad level and strength he'd be a very good second guy....still should be a good training camp back though.

    Terrell Davis? That's kind of interesting - obviously he is not Terrell Davis - but I can see it a little bit when he runs....maybe it's how quickly his legs churn when he gets his hands on the ball or his size /speed, but that's about it. I do see it a little though.
