:drool:

I was thinking about the other day. That would make our offense damn difficult to deal with. First you have to deal with Crabtree and AJ outside. Then you have to deal with the Mismatches Walter would create from the slot. OD in the seams and oh yeah Steve Slaton running and out of the backfield. That is a nightmare for DCs around the league. If somehow he fell here I sure hope we wouldn't pass on that.

Judging from the playoffs, especially from teams like Pittsburgh, Baltimore, etc., I would much rather have a dominant defense. An average offense paired with a great defense wins Super Bowls. A great offense with an average defense might win games but will almost assuredly get knocked out when it counts the most.

I actually think Walter is a great #2 to complement AJ. He's exacty what you want in a #2. That being said, the Texans would be a relaly fun team to play with on Madden :)

How far do you guys think Crabtree will fall if he runs a 4.6 in the 40 yard dash?

Don't get me wrong, I think the guy is a hell of a receiver and I think he will excel in the NFL but I just don't think he has the kind of straight line speed that is going to dazzle the scouts at the combine.

I have a gut feeling that his stock is going to take a big hit after he gets clocked at the combine or on his pro day.

That thing's awesome! When I did it, they had our picks as:
1) Taylor Mays- FS, USC
2) Darius Butler- CB, Connecticut
3) Rashad Jennings- RB, Liberty

I think I would love that draft but we didn't address our DL which I think is critical... at least our secondary should be completely finished and Slaton has a nice partner.

I ran it and got the same thing. I would love that draft but if I was going to cherry pick, and I am, Im going Alex Mack in the second. OH yeh and sign Peppers as a free agent to address the DL!:)

These four additions alone would be a great offseason IMO. Mack and Jennings should improve our short yardage game Peppers along with Mario will be getting QB's in a hurry and making Mays look like the next Ronnie Lott.

Wow I just noticed Raji is available at 15. I have to change my cherry.

1st.) Raji
2nd.) Mack
3rd.) Jennings
FA.) Peppers.

Hows that for addressing the DL! :d: Our DL would look like

Dang... that would be a majorly awesome draft. I would LOVE it.

Another option would be:
1) Taylor Mays- S
2) Alex Mack- C or Shonn Greene- RB
3) Ron Brace- DT (the other run stuffing Boston College DT)

If you take Mack in the 2nd, we could probably find a decent RB in the 4th.

I edited the draft simulator . I kept Taylor Mays but I changed the 2nd round pick to Shonn Green and it then gave me CB Keenan Lewis in the 3rd .

Everyone is saying Peppers will be franchised but that should be a whole lot of $. Can someone give me useful info on the DT B.J. Raji? His team mate Ron Brace a D tackle has had 26 tackles and 2 QB sacks last two years but is never mentioned. If he could be had at a lower round, Brace may resolve our stop the run weakness & save us a 1st round. Brace is 22 YOA, 6'3" 324 lbs and is a senior. Info on either would be appreciated. Steve

I really like Raji b/c he has great size and quickness, very good at stopping the run but possesses an uncanny ability to get in the backfield for a guy his size. I've read different different reports on his actual TFL and sacks for the season (nfldraftcountdown is on the high side of those). 16 TFL and 8 sacks, he's just overshadowed Brace.

Agreed Ron Brace (http://bceagles.cstv.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/brace_ron01.html) would be a good pick up in 2nd/3rd... maybe even 4th? but, to me, he seems much more one dimensional than Raji.

I will agree with that, Brace is more like a 3rd to 4th round NT. Not a 1st round type.

My question and no one will know the answer for some time, which guy benefited more from playing next to the other.

I would love to get both guys. I like DTs like the Jags had a few years ago, big and quick. Makes the OL pick a medicine, only one can be doubled, and that is what a defense should do, make the offense adjust to you not you adjust to the offense.

Brace is not an option IMO. I dont see him getting drafted before the 5th round. He is pretty much just a big body. Doesnt get pushed back but that is about the extint of his abilities. We already have Okam for that.

Raji flat out dominates at times. Like I have said many times, I doubt he is still around at 15. If he is I cant imagine anyone else available that could make the impact for us that he could. For all those who want Haynesworth you need to watch some Raji highlights. He is like a young Hanesworth without the baggage. If we could draft him and get Peppers or Suggs in FA our DL would be set for years.

Of course this is assuming we get a DC that wants these type of plyers. I cant for the life of me imagine a coach that wouldnt want a 330 DT who can collapse the pocket and get to the QB.

B. J. Raji, 2009 NFL Draft Prospect
Defensive/Nose Tackle

6' 1" 330 lbs.

Boston College

Senior

Strengths + Strong Hands, Versatility, Strength(bull rush), agile and quick, good in pursuit of the ball.

Weaknesses- Experience, lacks ideal height, tendency to get too high


By Brandon Thorn

Boston College DT B.J. Raji, whose first name, Busari is Nigerian for bliss, is one of the prospects who's stock is rising by the minute. Raji was dominant for the majority of his senior season and led one of the best defenses in the nation. Fortunately he was able to play this year because last year he had to sit out (redshirt) due to an error in counting his credits, which shouldn't hurt his draft status. Raji learned a lot about himself and what he was capable of during that time, he could still practice with the scout team and he soon was wrecking havoc on the first-team offensive line. Raji's weight prior to his junior season shot to over 350 pounds at one point. Head Coach Jeff Jagodzinski was adamant about B.J. getting down to the 320-330 range by the season's start and B.J. did just that. By the time his senior year began Raji was ready to prove to his family, coaches, teammates, and the rest of the college football world that he wasn't another lost prospect.

Raji is the type of defensive tackle who can play in the 3-4 or 4-3 which will only enhance his draft status. Earned 1st team All-ACC honors his senior year while being the main cog in the #5 ranked defense in the nation. Boston College also ranked #1 in the ACC in total defense as well as 1st against the run to include one of Raji's most dominant performances against Maryland which they gave up a net gain of -6 yards rushing. B.J. projects very well to the next level. Raji faced some adversity already in his young career and overcame that with flying colors. He is mentally tough. Coming from a family that migrated here from Nigeria has contributed to his work ethic which he gets from his father, who is about to receive his doctorate in theology and divinity. I don't know about you, but to me that is just an added bonus for this young man. He knows what hard work is, so he will continue to get better at the next level.

At the point of attack Raji has tossed lineman around at times this past season. Gets up field in a hurry and will pursue the ball until the whistle. Blessed with fluid hips for a man his size, has a pretty good spin move to go with his signature bull rush. Raji can control the line of scrimmage and read/react very well. Although his stamina was in question during his freshman and sophomore years, he has shown no signs of early fatigue during his senior campaign.

Raji is equally good against the run as he is the pass. he lacks an arsenal of pass-rush moves, but that can be fixed with proper coaching. He also misses the easy tackle on occasion which also can be fixed through the right coaching. If Raji gets under the tutelage of a top defensive line coach and/or coordinator he can become scary for offenses to deal with. Due to Raji's lack of experience he would benefit greatly by this as well as being apart of a rotation instead of being 'the guy' right away. Raji was able to produce at a very high rate this year without missing a game. Raji is the total package and should be a very good player on the next level.

325 pound (plus) defensive tackles with his quickness, strength and athletic ability don't come around every year and Raji will probably get drafted much higher than what most people think, he could even be off the board at the 10-15 range in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

2006 - 12 23 8.5 3
2007 Redshirt
2008 - 13 42 16 7


I would like to add he has the best spin move for a guy his size I have ever seen. :kingkong:Of course I cant think of anyone his size that I have seen do a spin move.:thinking:

Though I agree, my thinking here is that we have a possible franchise LT in Brown. He wasn't all-world last year but he was solid as a rookie in a very tough division for tackles.

We don't have a franchise CB, which has become the most critical position on the field besides QB.

If we grab Oher, where do we put Brown? If we grab Jenkins, this team has solid talent and depth at CB for really the first time in franchise history.

I'd love to add Oher as our LT and move Brown to RG or RT. That would really mask Myers deficiencies and we'd have a KILLER running game.

With that said, I think they go BPA and that would be Malcolm Jenkins. I'd be totally on board with this pick b/c he's just so talented and would make our secondary great. I actually think he could easily be the first 'D' player taken in the draft though.

Everyone of the GM's has the image of him shaking off the Texas defenders and winning the game with an exhausted clock branded in their brains. He ain't getting out of the top ten. Even if he runs a 4.6. Remind us all again what Jerry Rice ran at the combine ? The guy's got skills.

With you beer lover. The offense is top ten in fifteen of the offensive stats. The defense on the other hand.....

That's nice beerlover....but once you get past a certain level, like the first forty six picks....there are only so many first step guys on the board. Unless the scouts find some Gem in the third round or later....or they free agent the pass rusher....you ain't getting one if you BPA the first two rounds. And this regime cannot go into '09 with out one.Whether it's a LB they can blitz or a smaller DE with a first step, they've got to have one. They'll gamble if they have to....but they have to have one if they are to have any chance at winning the division in '09. And everyone over on Kirby should know that.

Good thing I'm not the GM. Orakpo falls out of the top five. I move up and go get him.

Hot off the press, looks pretty good @ this stage in the process - http://walterfootball.com/draft2009.php

15 Houston Texans: Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois
This could be a spot where the Texans trade down. Their greatest needs this offseason are strong safety, guard, nose tackle and a 4-3 end to complement Mario Williams. Taking the best player at each of those four positions would be reaching.

If Houston can't find a trading partner, they may look at Vontae Davis. You can never have enough talented corners, and it's not like the Texans couldn't use an upgrade at the position. Davis is probably the top player available anyway, so I think this is Houston's best option considering the circumstances.


also, see I told y'all -

28 Philadelphia Eagles: Louis Delmas, FS, Western Michigan
Brian Dawkins is adored by all Eagles fans, but the future Hall of Fame free safety turns 36 in October. Even if Dawkins re-signs with Philadelphia, the team will need to find his successor soon because he's somewhat of a liability in coverage. It's clear that Quintin Demps isn't the answer after his horrific performance in the NFC Championship.

Louis Delmas has really shined at the Senior Bowl and put himself into first-round consideration.

Beerlover did you look at who Walters gives us in round 2? William Moore. Please just shoot me. Give it up, after the season Moore had the Texans can not afford the risk in the 2nd round. Moore is overrated. even in the 2nd.

3rd round for those interested looks real nice, Ayers from Tennessee.

there's a more than one guy over there, here is the new one from Matt McGuire- 15 Houston Texans: Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU
I really think the Texans could release Anthony Weaver this offseason after he failed to generate a single sack in 2008. Left defensive end becomes a need here and Jackson is the top one currently on the board. Watch out, because the Texans might take a shocker pick in Rashad Johnson or Louis Delmas at free safety.
http://walterfootball.com/draft2009matt.php

46 Houston Texans: Louis Delmas, S, Western Michigan
Will Demps was benched for Nick Ferguson, and Texans beat writer John McClain does not think Ferguson will be back. Free safety is a huge need and Delmas can be the captain of the defensive backfield the Texans have always lacked. This pick also greatly helps out Tyson Jackson (previous pick), Mario Williams, and Amobi Okoye to generate more coverage sacks.

Previous pick; Patrick Chung, S


either way looks like Beerlover gets his guy :texflag:

I am not sure that your boy Delmas makes it into round 2. I currently have him at the top of the Safety class. If he slid though he would be a HUGE steal. I am also not a huge Tyson Jackson fan. I don't think he did that much last year and does not come across to me as a worthy first rounder.

I don't want to hijack the thread, but I did want to plug the fact that my latest Texans mock will be posted this week. I can't wait to hear your thoughts. Just as a teaser, I have a potential surprise pick for the Texans in round 1....

I don't want to hijack the thread, but I did want to plug the fact that my latest Texans mock will be posted this week. I can't wait to hear your thoughts. Just as a teaser, I have a potential surprise pick for the Texans in round 1....

Texans mock? I'm not as big with just doing one team mocks as I am with 32 team mocks, but I look forward to seeing who you got the Texans picking.

I'm begining to think the guy Walter hates our guts.

18. Chicago Bears: Larry English, DE, Northern Illinois
Larry English is made for the 3-4, but I think he could definitely work well in a Tampa-2 4-3 scheme. English's stock is on fire after an impressive showing at the Senior Bowl.

So at the eighteen....English works for the Bears but not the Texans at the 15 ?

And then he comes back in the second and lays the under achieving SS on us... and by his own mock....there are two high end corners left on the board and a guy who projects to a sam backer with a pass rush. I don't get it.

Well one thing about tyson jackson....he can't be any worse than what they already have at the slot.

That picture of Maybin is pretty impressive.

Well sometimes when you take a cant miss Mathew Stanford....he turns out to be David Carr. Or Ryan Leif, that's what kills a franchise for five or ten years. Not laying a foundation. And yes, they're making seventy million they can't sit and watch no more Scott.

It looks decent enough for the most part.

I think it's odd that Jenkins' slow 40 drops him to 10 but Maybin's slow 40 propels him into top 10 consideration...

I can see the Rams getting a QB early this year, but I don't think it will be the 1st round.

I didn't get to see the combine drills so I don't know about English playing LB for us. Someone who saw him work out could observe that better.

I really do not see Brace as a 1st rounder. At all.

15. Houston Texans (8-8) Larry English, DE/OLB, Northern Illinois

English could make a big impact early on for the Texans, who would likely play him on the outside of DeMeco Ryans. With a suddenly-strong linebacking group behind a strong, young defensive line, the Texans would make establish a powerful defense for years to come.

intriquing prospect. I had him projected late 1st early 2nd so could be ideal if Rick Smith works another trade down scenero. the problem I have is projecting him to OLB instead of his natural position RDE. when all is said & done he could be one of the best in his class & fit in perfectly with what Texans need as they keep Mario @ LDE. great upside, can drop & cover (limited) better used downhill pressure on QB. hips smooth/change of direction, decent strenth great explosion first step, vertical 36" :specnatz:
