We're switching gears and taking a look at some potential sleepers in this year's draft, starting off with Stanford's Chris Owusu:
When you have Andrew Luck as a QB, you learn things in a Pro style. Owusu is very fast, running a 4.31 – 4.36 at the combine in February. When healthy, he plays like a second or third rounder. Reliable on the field, good hands and above average on kickoff returns. Makes the big plays.
Ability to stay on the field. Only year he played in all of the teams games was his Freshman year. Sophomore and Jr. years, he missed 6 games, Sr. year missed the rest of the season after a early November concussion. If he can stay healthy, he could be a game changer.

Earlier on Tuesday we mentioned that the Buffalo Bills are “extremely interested” in Alabama safety Mark Barron.
Now we’re hearing that the Buffalo Bills like LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers, according to Matt Miller of the Bleacher Report. If they end up drafting him, they would then think about moving Kyle Williams to defensive end.
As we get closer to the NFL draft...
Last night the Buffalo Bills passed over wide receiver Michael Floyd and instead drafted corner back Stephon Gilmore from the University of South Carolina.
Gilmore has the potential to become and, in my opinion, will become a top 10 corner in the NFL within the next 2-4 years. The reason being is simple – he doesn’t allow completions.
In three full seasons at the USC, Gilmore...
The Houston Texans played great last season and most people consider them a lock to make it back to the playoffs in 2012 due to their explosive offense and top-ranked defense but will Matt Schaub be under center when they get there? That’s actually a good question when you consider how many games Schaub has missed during his time in Houston. In the five years he has been with the...
Stephon Gilmore is not unlike many youngsters who dream of one day playing in the NFL. It's not every child who has to share that dream with their mother at 4 in the morning.
That's the memory Gilmore's mother, Linda, has of being shaken awake from a dead sleep by her excited seven-year-old some 15 years ago.
The dream that he was on an NFL team was so vivid that there...
HOUSTON Initially, the Texans draft strategy appeared cut-and-dried.
Franchise icon receiver Andre Johnson missed nine games last season, marking the second time in five years that Johnson participated in fewer than 10 games. The Texans were devoid of his leadership, and of greater importance, his production. Their offense was hamstrung without Johnson, whose injury history (Johnson...
Veteran free agent kicker Neil Rackers has signed with the Washington Redskins.
Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday that Rackers will compete with Graham Gano to be this season's kicker.
Rackers has played 12 seasons with Cincinnati, Arizona and Houston. He made 32 of 38 field goal attempts -- including 4 of 5 from 50-plus yards -- last year with the Texans.
Gano went 31 for...
Free agent kicker Neil Rackers has signed a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins.
Rackers, contacted by phone by FoxSportsHouston.com, said he could not wait any longer for a deal from the Texans.
"We've spent two years in Houston and had promises for a year and a half of contract extensions," Rackers said. "(The Redskins) came to us with a one-year minimum...
With Terrence McGee's injury history, Drayton Florence's aging legs and Leodis McKelvin's unfulfilled potential, cornerback was a position of a need on the backburner if not front burner for the Bills heading into the NFL Draft. And while help for the offense in the form of a left tackle or wide receiver would've been prudent and hard to argue against, general manager...
