Not a QB, foolish in my opinion to ever take one with the first pick in the salary cap era.

Not a QB, foolish in my opinion to ever take one with the first pick in the salary cap era. I agree. Hard for me to pick, but let's say all draft picks, free agents and trades work out as expected. My thought is corner back. IMO that is a primo position that can cost you 7 points in about 4-5 seconds. My concern is even if pbuc has a better than avg year, do we sign him to the huge contract he'll want? If we do, what if 2006 was an aberration? I think most agree you can pick up safeties at lower rounds & the coaches seem ok with what we have. Other than QB, I think we have some depth at other spots. I'm ok with linebackers, but could use lower rounds to address if needed. That being said, I cannot i d the top 3 cbs that might be available out of college. I read in Chronic that Kubes want to pick another veteran cb now to come off the bench. That might change my choice but prolly not.

Tell that to Pittsburgh/Cincinatti

Do not think I have to as Cincinnati has nothing to show for it at the moment by taking Palmer. The Steelers got a bargain with Ben. I am only speaking to the first pick of the draft. This is a pre emptive strike on the Domers and Brady Quinn.

That is swell, but that does not mean his game will transfer to the pros nor will it most likley transfer in years one or two. The cost outwieghs the production most often, let someone else assume the cost until you get the finished product and then outlay the cash.

Dude, when will you "doesn't transfer to the pros" people ever quit? Why don't you just say that about everyone.

Hey Kaiser Toro, i don't think what Mario Williams did in college will transfer to the pros. Demeco either.

Why don't we just put all the college players names in a hat and draw randomly? Cause obviously what they did in college has nothing to do with the pros.

I mock reply with I don't think that Vince Young, Reggie Bush, AJ Hawk, Lendale White, Jay Cutler, Mercedes Lewis, Vernand Davis, Matt Linehart, and D'brickshaw Fergasun might not tranfer to the pros.

Also he doesn't make it definite his statement saying he WILL NOT make it in the pros, he's merely putting the thought out and saying college stats are no gaurantee of NFL success... look at Carr, and I digress.

HOU-TEX
07-24-2006, 01:31 PM
I chose RB. I understand that Kub's offense will make a good RB out of anybody, but IMO if we get one already somewhat proven then we'd be that much better. If adrain Pederson has a good year we could look at him. I'm sure there might be better RBs that are out there, his name was first to come to mind. I'd take a DB in the second rd, depending on what's available.:shades:

Sorry for my language, but that is what we ex-scouts and coaches use when looking to see how will they project at a higher level of play. In the business world it is scale.

Moreover, it is not the stats that we say will transfer it is the behavior and style that matters.

I just want to be like : hey, the last game you saw him play he had almost 500 yards of offense and won the national championship, so until you see him play a game in the NFL i don't want to hear sh!t from you!!

Honestly, I'm not sure whether VY will be good or not. Also, you claim people are sure he will be a bust, but at the same time it seems you are sure he is going to be great and ignore the fact he is the definition of a boom or bust prospect.

Anyway, back on topic. It is way to hard to point out needs for the 2007 NFL Draft this early. It totally depends where you are picking in the draft and you never know what player(s) step up at certain positions.

I chose a running back too. Of course the season hasn't even started, we don't know where we're going to pick, and we don't know what kind of player will be available when we do pick but nevermind those trivial details. If I could add a major component to this team right this second (which is kind of how our answers are going to play out. We'll all mostly choose the position we feel the Texans need most) it would be a running back.

People will say that the Broncos don't take running backs in the first round but I understand we were getting ready to make a run at DeAngelo Williams before Carolina got in the way and I think that makes it pretty apparent that maybe we won't spend the #1 overall on a running back but we're more than willing to take one in the first round if we think that's what we need. Obviously we thought that was a need this year.

I'd like to see us get an upper tier back to run in this system. I think the results would be very good.

07-25-2006, 09:54 AM
I Chose LB on the poll.
I really like Jeff Samardzija of Notre Dame. I was hoping that with the plethera of Quality WR's this year he would fall into the second.
Nope not going to happen. Already the Hype is begining.

I think we're one more OL away from having an Elite core. It looks as though there will be several quality guys in the first two rounds. Whoever the QB is in the future, we get a foundation we can compete for the playoffs....every year. We start every season ahead of the division rivals. KC hasn't had a very good WR corps in years, however they compete every year because of the core of that O-line. If you can run the ball you always have a chance.

I would like a young possesion guy to groom behind Moulds.

If the draft is Loooooaded at Saftey, I would prefer to wait untill later on the first day to grab one. Unless he's a monster....tieing up that kind of money, first round money, in a saftey is foolish. I would of done it this year with Huff. ONLY because he has a chance to transition to CB. I think the trend has been to lock in , QB's DE's, DTs, CB's and LB's with the big bucks. Has Sean Taylor made a forty million dollar impact on Washington so far ? We're going to see the answer September the 24th. Denver has a history of taking safties high so I go into this with my eyes open. Landry is a high Quality player at a need position. But...would love it if the scouts would find "our" Bob Sanders in the second or third round. I love LSU DBs. Just not Safties in the first. I think CC is going to be fine.

I like our stable or Running backs. And the trend in the NFL is not to over pay for them. (See Sean Alexander's soap opera for an extension with Seatle) Alexander had to set a new standard for TD's befor he got his deal.
That said, if we're in the middle of the first, with no elite LB's or OLT's on the table and one of the Elite, durable RB's falls to us, think that would be very hard to pass on. All of this is ASSuming that the line this year is going to improve. (lol, and you know what they say about assumption...the mother of all mess ups). If it doesn't, and Carr is pummled again...don't know about the first...but we gotta have a QB in the wings to start grooming. ...Or we gotta go get one. The Carr experiment is done. Don't know if that's with a #1 ? Or we offer the one and players for Matt Schaub ? Schaub is ready now. A rookie is going to take awhile.

I personally believe that DC WILL come through this season

07-26-2006, 01:01 PM
Unless he's a monster....tieing up that kind of money, first round money, in a saftey is foolish.

Once you get out of the top 12 or so picks (hopefully the Texans' situation), the money isn't exhorbitant for a safety.

For example: Jamaal Brown taken #13 signed a 5 year $11 mil deal. Logan Mankins taken #32 signed a 5 year $6.4 mil deal. The franchise tag for safeties (top 5 players) is $4.1 mil. The transition tag (top 10 paid safeties) is $3.6 mil.

I voted for a RB as well. I like Davis but I still think there are major question marks about his health. Obviously there isn't going to be the same level of talent at RB this upcoming draft as there was in the most recent one, but I do like guys like Michael Bush, Justin Vincent, Kenneth Darby, and Tyrone Moss.

I doubt we take a RB, it will likely be a DB of some sort depending on who appears the weakest out of CC Brown, Glen Earl, and Philip Buchanon. Unless we are somehow in a position to draft Adrian Peterson then I don't think they will use a 1st rounder on a RB.

Part of me WANTS a runningback, just from a point of view that this franchise has never had a TRUE franchise calibre back. Though with Kubiak's system, using the pick on a RB wouldnt be smart.

I chose DB. Hopefully either Landry or Mayweather.

WILLIEG
08-06-2006, 06:09 PM
For right now until proven otherwise, I will have to say a legit OT. There are 2legit OT's that are franchise material in Joe Thomas (Sr.), Wisconsin and Levi Brown (Sr.), Penn St. But there are 2 more who are underclassmen, Sam Baker (Jr.), USC and this kid Jared Gaither (So.), Maryland and he is a beast. If all works out I believe we should go for a franchise RB only if we can get A. Peterson, because to me M. Bush is overated and I wouldn't want to waist a pick on him unless it's towards the end of the 1st round. We definately need a CB, but this year's class is full of athletic, tall, and speedy CB's that we be able to reach in the later rounds. I would love for the Texans to have a winning record this year but realistically I believe that our record won't be that much better as last year's because of our schedule and our running game. And if it's not then we might have trade down for the coouple of key pieces I believe we are still lacking. I hope that this isn't the case and we kick some *** this year and take everyone by surprise.

Do not draft Safety this year. Kenny Phillips of Miami will declare in 2008 and he is the best safety out of College Since Sean Taylor.

6'2 204, has the frame to play at 210 in the NFL. runs a 4.4, moves like a cb, great ball skills, student of the game, good hitter.

Right now. K. PHillips = Brandon Merriweather, and Phillips is 3 years younger. He is a very interesting safety prospect and he didn't disappoint tonight. No balls was thrown towards his way. Even though Merriweather got an 2 INT, he was thrown on several times. I didn't see one ball headed to Kenny's direction.
