3. The Reggie Bush aftermath: It will be fascinating watching what the Houston Texans do. A year ago, they made a last-minute decision not to take the best player in the draft -- Bush. Instead, they took defensive end Mario Williams No. 1. Without a healthy running back, QB David Carr and the offense failed last season. Under coach Gary Kubiak, Houston has replaced the quarterback, halfback and fullback all for significantly more money than the starters who were under contract. Bush helped the Saints become a playoff team. The talk in Houston is that the Texans hope defensive end Gaines Adams will fall down to them at No. 10. That's right, Gaines, like Williams, is a pass-rusher. The Texans want more sacks, but they can't trade up for Adams. Imagine if they give up a good portion of this year's and next year's draft to move up to take another defensive end? They also aren't going to get halfback Adrian Peterson, who will go third or fifth. At 10, the Texans might trade back if the right player isn't there.

IMHO Gaines Adams was out of our reach when we were picking eighth. I sure hope Rick Smith isn't holding his breath on this one.

Then again, stranger things have happened...

Let me first say I would be shocked if he fell, but damn you would have to feel sorry for him sitting in that room until the 10th pick even if we were not there.

Does anyone recall when RB Leeland McElroy fell all the way to the second round?

What is funny that over half the players that were invited there could be the one that could fall to 10. Adams, Peterson, and Quinn all have a chance.

It won't be Gaines Adams he went to TB.
