The depth at SLB in this year's draft is great. The Texans should have no problem finding a starter to play SLB. Texans were seen talking with Posluzny in the senior bowl. Here is few LB who can fit our system very well.


Timmons - 1st round
Posluszny - 1st round
Alexander - 2nd
Beason - 2nd
Everett - 2nd

Alexander is too small to play SLB, he is basically only going to be a WLB in the NFL.

That would mean we would have to trade down. to get them in the 1st. With the trade down I would rather have Patrick Willis playing at that spot who can play any LB position.

With that said, I think we have more pressing needs than to pick a LB in the 1st round. I just don't see us picking a LB in the 1st...but may pick the right one in the 2nd if he's worth it.

Why do I think of Bobby Carpenter when I think of Posluszny?

Demeco Ryans was to small. Look how that turned out.

Agreed. I think again some scouts and analysts get caught up in things like height and 40 measurements. If a guy can play...and has proved himself in a tough conference.... and yes despite things i think the Big 12 is a tough conference and will build on last year. It'sa plus he played at Oklahoma...sorta (UT fan) but they run a pro style program.

Agreed. Sometimes we get lost with all measurements where as we also need to check to see how they play on the field.

Rufus alexander will be the demeco ryans of next year. He can cover and lay some serious wood. I would love to see a LB like him or Everett taken in the 2nd rd

would rather see the Texans address the secondary & OL w/1st two picks. then in 3rd look for a OLB, WR, RB, DE, FS, QB ............:rolleyes:
