"Tyler Ervin cuts. On the field and off.The 4th-round selection from San Jose State littered his alma mater’s record books, as he’s the school’s all-time leader in all-purpose yards, kickoff return yards, return touchdowns, and the most touchdowns of 70 yards or more.You don’t accomplish all that if you’re not shifty.But Ervin also cuts hair."
Houston Texans’ offensive makeover continues in draft – Tania Ganguli, ESPN
"Best move: Grabbing Braxton Miller in the third round. Miller is a little bit rough around the edges as a receiver, but with his speed and athletic ability, he’s valuable. He can learn the position as he grows within the Texans’ offense and they’ll be able to use him for some of their trick plays and Wildcat snaps. Miller was, after all, a quarterback before he switched to receiver for his senior year."
