Houston Texans Transcripts (5/9): Second Day Of Rookie Minicamp

Head Coach Bill O’Brien
(on what the rookies need to do to improve from the first day) “They have to, you know, it’s interesting that you ask that question. Last night in our offensive meeting, we put up the script for day one’s practice with all the plays and then the script for day two, today’s practice with all the plays, and then the script for what will probably be the first practice of OTAs, and then the script for what will be the first practice of training camp. It just keeps piling on. That was one of the messages this morning, was that you really have to stay ahead. You get the information sent to you on an iPad the night before in preparation for your meeting the next morning, so you really have to do a good job of staying ahead and that’s kind of what today will be about too.” (more)

Houston Texans Transcripts (5/8): First Day Of Rookie Minicamp

Head Coach Bill O’Brien
(on his message to the rookies about their orientation to Houston and the NFL) “That’s an interesting question. When we talk to the rookies, the first thing that we talk about is, basically since the end of their college season they’ve been somewhat of a man without a country, meaning, they hired an agent, a lot of these guys hired an agent. The agent placed them maybe in a workout facility. They were kind of making sure that they were taking care of their own skill set as it relates to the combine, those types of drills, the Senior Bowl and all those things...

Houston Texans Transcripts (5/2): Rick Smith and Bill O’Brien Post Draft Press Conference

Rick Smith
(on drafting DT Christian Covington despite his knee injury) “Well, we are very comfortable from a medical perspective with the knee. Obviously, we’re versed on the procedure that he went through and feel good about where his rehab is. I had an opportunity to go over and work him out, so we felt comfortable with him. He’s a young man, a very intelligent young man, a very intense young man. He comes from good pedigree, of course. Being here locally, we were able to watch him. We think we know what he can add to our football team, so good pick for us, I think.”
 
Bill O’Brien
(on drafting DT Christian Covington despite his knee injury) “Yeah, I agree (with Rick Smith). Our scouts worked him out. (Defensive Line Coach) Paul Pasqualoni worked him out. We felt good about what we saw a few weeks ago and we think that we have a really good vision for what he could possibly do for us, so we’re glad to have him on board.” (more)

(on how it feels to be following in his footsteps) “It’s great. Knowing that my uncle set that trademark for us. It’s just a blessing to be able to follow in his footsteps and follow his legacy.”
 
(on how it feels to be reunited with RB Alfred Blue) “I’m excited. When I came up just for a visit he was excited that I was coming to meet the Texans and everybody there. He was just congratulating me and just telling me that it’ll be nice to have us two back in the backfield like our old days at LSU. Me and Alfred have been close ever since we were at LSU. He showed me the way as a freshman and hopefully we have that same trait like we had at LSU. He showed me the way, how to be a professional. “ (more)
