Default 1st day of Rookie Mini-Camp

Some insight from some tweeters that are there..

Quote:
Kubiak: Thinks a great opportunity for one of the UDFA RBs to make team /number of guys looked like real deal guys at practice
Quote:
Kubiak: After morn practice. RBs at rookie camp should be excited. "We have two on our team. There's an opportunity"
Quote:
Texans rookie minicamp flash? Hopkins' catches. /bunch of media saying all in unison "Did you see that?"
Quote:
One Hopkins catch looked like sure interception downfield on misthrown ball. Surprised he grabbed it. Also got one-hand catch behind him.
Quote:
DeAndre Hopkins is a special player. Understands how to play the position. #Texans
Quote:
Hopkins showed his hands off the entire day. Made a one handed catch that left me speechless bc it happen so fast.
Quote:
#texans LB Sam Montgomery told me he tweaked his back during drills. Kubiak says he may sit out the afternoon session, Sam says he won't
LOL

Quote:
All rookie draft picks were accounted for during mini camp.
Quote:
D.J. Swearinger is a leader. Already directing traffic and is well put together player.
Quote:
Alan Bonner is bigger in person than what I realized. He looks like he can play either inside or outside.
Quote:
Brennan Williams is an athletic big right tackle who can move. He is one to watch.
Quote:
Brennan Williams and David Quesseberry are the first guys you want off the charter bus.
Quote:
Kubiak very impressed with DeAndre Hopkins. Also singled out Bonner. Said they know what they want to do w/ball before catching it. #Texans
Quote:
Trevardo Williams showed why he is a edge rusher, can lean and get low. Has good closing speed.
Quote:
Hopkins had some very impressive catches. A nice one handed catch early in the session. Stared down Swearinger after one.
CALM DOWN , GUYS! IT'S JUST PRACTICE!

Quote:
Talked to Swearinger after practice and he said he was born to lead and looks forward to that role in Houston.
Quote:
Swearinger and Hopkins both laughed after practice about this little rivalry they've got going.
Will add more but I think i'll space it out a little better

Tweeters are Patrick Starr, Stephanie Stradley, Marc Vandemeer, and Tania Ganguli.

The always reliable Nate bringing the latest from camp. Keep it up Nate, I was getting ready to ask you about reporting from camp. I thank you sir.
Edit/ just keep reporting and don't space them out, we are already spaced out enough from real football. Also Hopkins better watch out because Swearinger will level him out if he keeps staring him.

Brennan Williams I can't say enough of. I know it's the first day, in shorts and shirts, but he has something about him. Very athletic.

Former #Arkansas RB Dennis Johnson is very fast. Looked explosive today at #Texans rookie minicamp.

It's very possible.

Not sure how much Tate is worth now, though.. Barely saw him in last season..

Quote:
Kubiak said DeAndre Hopkins and Alan Bonner both have a chance to help #Texans improve in yards after catch
Quote:
Gary Kubiak on DeAndre Hopkins' 1st practice: "Impressed. Very impressed. Very competitive, thatís number one." #Texans

Not sure how I feel about this one..

Quote:
Kubiak on @casekeenum7: ďItís automatic for him now. I think Case is fixing to be extremely competitive with TJ and Matt."
