David Quessenberry, C/G, San Jose State
Height: 6-5. Weight: 294. Arm: 33 7/8. Hand: 10 1/2. 40 Time: 5.08. Projected Round (2013): 2-3. 4/24/13: Sources have told WalterFootball.com that Quessenberry had a climb as a prospect because teams love his versatility. They said he could go late in the second round.
Quessenberry was a productive 3-year starter for San Jose State who earned multiple All-Conference selections. A strong Senior Bowl really helped him. Quessenberry got better each practice and was very impressive in the final day's one-on-ones. He followed that up with a good performance at the Combine. Quessenberry turned in a fast 40-yard dash, did well in the field drills and was solid on the bench press (25 reps).
Quessenberry hides his weight extremely well. He definitely has the the frame to add on another 15-20 pounds. Quessenberry also good numbers for arm length and hand size that will help his ability to play multiple positions. All of that adds up to a nice athlete to mold into a starting lineman in the NFL.
The 2013 draft class is weak on the inside of the offensive line, so Quessenberry could easily rise higher. He has the ability to play guard, center and tackle. Teams love that flexibility to help them on game days. It is probably most likely that he ends up starting at center or guard. Quessenberry has starting potential and really helped himself in Mobile.
Ryan Otten, TE, San Jose State
Height: 6-5. Weight: 240. Arm: 32 1/8. Hand: 9 5/8. Projected 40 Time: 4.71. Projected Round (2013): 3-4. 4/24/13: Sickness kept Otten from working out fully at the Combine, but he did well at his pro day.
Otten was a productive player for San Jose State. He had 47 receptions for 742 yards and four touchdowns in 2012. Otten played well at the Senior Bowl and really helped himself. Even though he was extremely sick, Otten toughed it out and excelled. He was a good receiver who showed blocking potential.
Otten had a strong junior season with 52 receptions for 739 yards and five touchdowns.
George Panos has been out of football for over a year and couldn't crack the two deep. If you need help with Badger players, which apparently you do, go on badgernation.com or one of the other Badger sites to get some education.
Thing is, the Texans DID have another choice...patience. If you don't like Savage for another year or two, sign Cutler, et al to fill in and draft your QB next year when the class is deep. Will Cutler take you deep into the play-offs? Probably not. But I'm pretty sure that a college QB who regressed as a passer each of his years, who threw more interceptions last year against college level defensive talent than Brock Osweiler did against NFL level talent (and who was saved from more by Mike Williams), and who struggles through progressions isn't going to take you deep into the play-offs...likely ever.
