I was listening to Charlie Palillo on 790, and he said that the Texans should at least get 3 starters with their 1st, 2nd, and two 3rd round picks. I agree with that as well. Whoever our first round pick is will undoubtedly be a starter. I don't know who we're targeting in the 2nd round but some of you seem to think it will be Nick Mangold. Some drafts have him going in the 1st round, but if not I think he will also be a starter. I don't know who's predicted to be available in the 3rd round, but with all the help we need, he should help.

I am thinking 2 out of the 4 will be starters, but hey if we get 3 starters out of the 1st 4 picks I'd be happy with that...

Well if we trade one of those 3rds for Burleson then yea id say 3 of the 4 picks would of gotten us starters.

That would be nice to get a few starters from the draft. We've got a 5th and 6th rounder starting this year so we can get some later in the draft too.

What do all of these players have in common?

Jason Babin
Jabar Gaffney
Bennie Joppru
Dave Ragone
Vernand Morency
Charles Hill
Seth Wand
Tony Hollings

All players drafted in the first three rounds by the Texans who are or were not "starters" at the end of 2005. And this is on a lousy team! And we still have the same guy making the draft picks!

If memory serves me correctly, the only starters drafted in the first three rounds are Carr, AJ, Dunta, Travis Johnson, Antwan Peek and Chester Pitts. And that's over FOUR drafts! With extra picks!

So what makes any of us think that this year will be any different? I agree we should get 3 or 4 starters this year. Many of the mock drafts I've studied have a lot of interesting players still on the board when we draft at 65/66. But I guarantee you that CC will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Here's what I'm hoping for:

1st round: Reggie Bush. Will definately start, but split time with Domanick Davis.
2nd round: Ashton Youbouty (CB, Ohio St) He's from the Houston area (Klein, went to the same HS as him) and would definately be an improvement over PBuc and Faggins.

I don't know about anyone else past the first 2 rounds, but that right there would be a nice start, IMO.

Im hoping for Davin Joseph, G, out of Oklahoma. If we cut Weigert, RG is an even bigger need then it is now, should we get Joseph, we will be well on our way to improving the weakest part of the team, interior line. Im hoping we only have one third, meaning one was given for compensation to the VIkes for Nate Burelson. With the other third im hoping that either one of the prominent safties falls, such as Blue, or we can go LB with someone like Rocky McIntosh out of Miami who can play MLB, another big hole on this D.

I'd personally wait and draft KaMichael Hall next year out of Georgia Tech and Klein Forest. No Klein boys on this team. :pigfly:

j/k couldn't help it. I go to KF.

Back on topic:

1)Bush RB, slot
2) Mangold, Eslinger C, McNeill T (if he drops, and he did on one mock draft I saw)
3)Safety, maybe Blue. Any other postion may not start. May not. Tough call for me.
