I'll get the draft day thread going.

I'm really hoping Jonathan Stewart is there at number 18. There has been some rumors that the Cardinals may pick him up. I hope not. He has good speed and is somewhat of a power back.

I hope Mendenhall is there although with the addition of Chris Brown in the offseason along with already having Chris Taylor, Darius Walker and Ahman Green may make the Texans go in a different direction.

Whoever they pick I'll support!! :fans:

I would like to be the first to wish our new Texans a big welcome.

I was the first Texans Fan to welcome Mario Williams to be a Texans. I was at the draft in NYC and the Texans brought Mario over and introduced him to me and he autographed my Draft Ticket. This happened like 15 minutes after he was officially drafted. WOW, what a honor that was.:fans:

I'd really like to see Brandon Albert or Chris Williams come our way, but I won't be surprised if we select Gosder Cherilus.

Please keep this thread bubbling away with all the speculation and reaction you all can muster, I am going to have to relive the draft excitement through this thread so talk it up.

I really want defense at #18, hopefully front 7. Best result in my mind would be Rivers falling to us by some miracle. :d:

Yes I am prepared for an LT or RB in the first, but call me an eternal optimist

stingray
04-25-2008, 11:03 PM
I predict we pick Mendenhall.

I predict an LT or the best defensive player avaliable. Or a trade down, I'm not ruling that out.

Yep. I have my doubts that they would take a RB, unless there were no alternative.

GuerillaBlack
04-25-2008, 11:27 PM
I say we draft either Mendenhall or Stewart. Let Ahman, Taylor, Walker, Brown, and Mendenhall/Stewart battle it out for first, second, third, and fourth string. Whoever is the oddman out, gets traded or cut. I'm thinking that may be Walker or Taylor. Ahman's injury problems have me wanting him gone though.

I predict the player we draft will be smarter than Vince Young.

Well the biggest hole is at Cb... Mike Jenkin's covers us even with a worse case scenario with Robinson. Six OT's before the 17 ?...Now that's a draft class.

Had Mendenhall's Mom on tonight....I think they are a fine family and if he is the pick...outide in instead of inide out, I'm on board. I think in the end we'll pay the price for doing it that way though. But we need a Dominic Davis-Williams pick every five or six years or so, so that we all can figure that out.

Oh the possibilities. If we go Defense which I believe we will, I have a short list I would like to see.
LB

Keith Rivers or Jerrod Mayo

DL

Merling or Campbell

DB

Jenkins, Flowers, or DRC

if it is Offense I would have to go OL with Albert or C. Williams. On a trade down it would depend on the position of the pick.

Yo, Kiwi, did you figure out a way to watch the draft yet? Last I saw you were kind of stuck.

Brando
04-26-2008, 10:06 AM
I predict we pick Mendenhall.

That would be awesome seeing that LZ thinks he will be there at 18. I would be ecstatic.

For those that want to draft Mayo......

Would we be able to move him to the outside? Because I would like Demeco to stay in the middle. Don't get me wrong I think Mayo is a great prospect, I'm just thinking.....

Mayo was an OLB until this last year. He can play all 3 LB positions, much the same as DeMeco, and they are both from the SEC.

Cool. I would like to draft him also.

Mendenhall
Stewart
Mayo
Rivers
Williams
DRC
Talib
Albert
Harvey

That's my wish list. I will support any player that the Texans brass decides to draft. I have faith in this regime.

Jerod Mayo, LB Tennessee

Well pretty good guess. If all of the tackle prospects who fit the scheme are off the board.... I stuck him in among my 20. He dove tails in to running monster safties. FWIIW, CC dubbed him the best LB on the board yesterday, bar none.

04-26-2008, 02:16 PM

Accoridng to A Schafter I am wrong gonna be Ryan!

Al Davis is nuts but he should pass on Mcfadden and grab Dorsey to replace Sapp, Dorsey os the best player in the draft and is s steal at 4!

GuerillaBlack
04-26-2008, 02:16 PM
Adam Schefter on NFLN ruins the picks.

I really thought ATL would take Dorsey & then trade up for Brohm.

Oh well. Been wrong before.

Yeah, he looked very appreciative.

bah007
04-26-2008, 02:39 PM
I'm thinkin either Gholston or Ellis.

But since it's the Jets, maybe they reach for Keith Rivers since they like to hear their fans boo so much.

Hutch13
04-26-2008, 02:39 PM

Yeah, he seems like a good guy. For his sake I was hoping the Saints would trade up for him but he should be really good.

kastofsna
04-26-2008, 02:39 PM
Saints offered a helluva trade to get Dorsey from the Chiefs.

Brandon420tx
04-26-2008, 02:40 PM
Mendenhall will be gone. I think Felix Jones and Jonathan Stewart will be there at 18 though.

yes .... but I don't want either of those at 18! *pulls out lucky dime and rubs it more*. I'd be fine with Stewart, but if Mendenhall is gone I hope we look at other positions.

twelvegage
04-26-2008, 02:40 PM

and to think, they could've had Hali, Dorsey and Allen, that would've been scary.

Ellis is a fine player. Nice pick.

Now the Ravens have GOT to be looking to trade back. But I expect Clady to go here.

I kept saying it would never happen, but the rumor wouldn't die. Jerry Jones did not trade up for McFadden!

Since Matt Ryan is gone, think Baltimore still goes QB?

And when the 8th pick, the Jackson Jaguars select RB Rashard Mendenhall.

The Pencil Neck
04-26-2008, 02:59 PM

Me, too.

I'm happy they have fewer picks. I don't think they needed to come this far up to get Harvey.

CloakNNNdagger
04-26-2008, 02:59 PM
Now the word is that Chris Williams has become a "leper" to many teams who were otherwise planning to pick him, because of a neck injury that he played with through last year. Is it a legitimate concern or a ruse? It would seem that teams would have known and considered this problem by now if it is indeed true. We don't want another Boselli, but it seems a far removed situation. We may find out soon when the Texans leave the clock.

Brandon420tx

Jags passing?

D-ReK
04-26-2008, 03:01 PM
- Stroud
+ Harvey

...I think their DL got worse this offseason.

Errant Hothy
04-26-2008, 03:01 PM
It's HArvey.

I think this is a fairly sizable reach, espically when you consider that they probably had to give a lot to get to #8.

Hutch13
04-26-2008, 03:01 PM
The Jaguars select Derrick harvey

AnthonyE
04-26-2008, 03:01 PM
Harvey.

Lol @ Jags.

Mike Kerns
04-26-2008, 03:01 PM
Did they really need to trade THAT far up to get him?

The Pencil Neck
04-26-2008, 03:01 PM
Derrick Harvey to the Jags.

Gotta expect the Bengals to go with Rivers here.

they really liked him, what can ya say...

pretty much solidifies, obviously, that the Jags aren't getting Jason Taylor.

The Pencil Neck
04-26-2008, 03:02 PM
Did they really need to trade THAT far up to get him?

They must have expected the Bengals to draft him. I didn't think the Bengals were going to do that. Without Ellis there, I expected the Bengals to go with Rivers anyway. They had no linebackers last year.

Rivers to the Bengals is official.

Jags gave up their 1st, 2 3rds, and a 4th for Harvey. That's so not worth it.

NE will take McKelvin.

The Ravens are going to have one hell of a draft. You give Ozzie Newsome that many picks to play with and he will completely reload that franchise in 1 year.

The Pencil Neck

I don't know what the Pats are going to do. Probably Albert. Maybe Clady? I don't expect them to take McKelvin here, though.

dalemurphy
04-26-2008, 03:08 PM
Well, the two RBs - Mendenhall and Stewart
all the CBs- McKelvin, Jenkins, DRC
all the LTs- Albert, Clady, Williams, Otah

have fallen to at least 10... looks like we're in good shape at 18 to get value for our pick.

Mr PC
