Scout's Take: Maccagnan on T David Quessenberry

Posted May 18, 2013

Director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan shares his thoughts on tackle David Quessenberry, the Texans' sixth-round draft pick out of San Jose State.


Texans director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan reviewed the 2013 NFL Draft with Texans insider Nick Scurfield. In this “Scout’s Take” series, we’ll share his thoughts on each of the Texans’ nine draft picks, from tight end Ryan Griffin in the sixth round to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in the first.

T David Quessenberry – (6th round, 178th overall)
6-5, 302 – San Jose State – La Costa Canyon (Calif.) HS

Texans director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan
“Scouting’s a very subjective thing. We look at hundreds of guys every year, and if you do this for a number of years, it ends up being in the thousands, probably, the number of players you evaluate. What happens a lot of times when you’re gathering information, when you’re talking to staff at a school, you’re getting a lot of subjective information that you have to put a value on based on what you interpret his ability to be. What happens with scouts, you do see guys that you kind of like as a prospect, and it doesn’t always have to be a first-round draft pick. It could be a seventh-round type draft pick where you just think, ‘You know what, that would be a really good guy to get at a certain point in the draft.’ I kind of felt that way with David. I scouted him going into the senior season. In the spring, he weighed about 282, so he was a little lighter than the prototypical tackles you see, but he got his weight up to close to 300 and probably played in the 290 and 295 range, and then when you talk to the staff there, they note that he was a former tight end who walked on and eventually grew into a tackle. I also like the fact that even though it was a ‘non-skill’ position, he was elected captain for them twice. So you like those aspects about his personality and character, and then when you watch him on tape, he is a good athlete. I thought he was a good technician when you watched how he played. I thought he was a very effective run blocker both on the line of scrimmage and at the second level. He did a nice job in pass protection. He actually played part of his season, I believe, with a sprained ankle, so some teams may have looked at tape when he was injured and they may not have liked (him) as much, but I actually liked the fact that he gutted it, played tough, worked through the injury. When he was available in the sixth round, me personally, he was a kid I was kind of excited because I thought he was a very good value for the potential return in the prospect. I think he’ll be a good guy to see if he can develop.”
