Future Texan?

Your Houston Texans are sprinting to the finish line with the 2017 NFL Draft a little more than a week away. Now word has gotten out through “league sources not authorized to speak publicly” that another potential first round target, Utah offensive tackle Garett Bolles, was in town yesterday to meet with the Texans.

This isn’t the first time Bolles’ path has crossed with the Texans, as the two sides also met at the NFL Combine. At that time, Bolles had this to say:

"They're great people," Bolles said. "A great organization and coaching staff. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens. If the Texans pick me up, great. I'll be more than happy to go to Texas. I'd be honored to play for that organization.

"When I'm on the field, I want to be nasty. I'm a competitor. I have a quick urge to get off the ball because I just want to punch the guy in the mouth and do whatever I can to be successful. I have the dog inside of me."

The biggest negative about Bolles may well be his age; he’ll be a 25 year old rookie. Would the loss of a few years of production due to his “advanced” age be enough of a deterrent for you to steer clear of Bolles if he was still available at No. 25? Or are you enough of a Bolles fan that you’d welcome him regardless of how many candles will be on his next birthday cake?
