Our position recaps roll on, and today we tackle the cornerback spot, with a video and slideshow to boot. Do any of you out there agree that the Texans' corners, while lacking in INT's this year, were as physical a group as far as tackling? Lots of big hits this year.
The live chats continue! Last week Joel Dreessen talked about the tight end position, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and keeping lawnmower blades sharp. Thursday at 1 pm, defensive end Tim Bulman drops in to answer questions from fans. Punter Matt Turk chats a week from today at 12:30 p.m.
Senior Bowl week has started in Mobile, AL, and after the first day of practice and weigh-ins, check out a few tidbits:
-Alabama defensive lineman Terrence Cody and the rest of the Senior Bowlers were weighed and measured today, and here's the slideshow to prove it.
-NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said that Southern Cal safety Taylor Mays has a body that's "carved to become a safety in the National Football League." Some folks have projected the Texans taking Mays in the first round. Mayock doesn't think he'll last past the 15th pick, BUT, he doesn't like that Mays picked off just five passes in his career as a Trojan.
-Evidently, Tim Tebow struggled a bit throwing the football and taking snaps under center today at the South team practice.
