Would you want him? Especially if Earl Thomas is gone? He is just a special talent that could be a real gamechanger that Jacoby can't be

If we address all are needs in the off season then yes. But I would take Thomas is he is there.

I think we have bigger needs then WR first round... unless we decide to not offer KW another contract or JJ.

Andre Davis contract expires this year and we'll be free from that bad contract. Other then when AJ went down he hasn't done anything special.

What we have behind them as far as play makers at WR leaves a lot to be desired.

David Anderson is a decent slot guy but couldn't go higher then a #3 on this team unless pressed into the role. Which would suck.

Martinez might develop into a good receiver, certainly has the speed to be a deep threat. Not sure if he's consistent enough yet though.

IMO I think KW plays a underrated role in the offense and I feel confident they'll resign him. JJ is a coin toss.

We have much bigger needs than WR in the 1st round. CB, FS, OG, DT etc....

hell yeah, at least I would. Walter contract year too. he is elite, if he falls to the Texans pick it would be most surprising :snowday:

Not sure. I need to see where we end up and what are our options. If we end up in the top 10 I 'd rather not take him in the top 10. If we can trade down to about 19 or 20 and get extra early picks, I could see taking in at that spot and in that scenario.

I'd probably pass. He's only marginally better than Briscoe. He's a better athlete, but not by much. The numbers would agree as well. Briscoe can be had in the 3rd or 4th (as of now) but he's easily more talented than some of the WR that went in the late first last year. He's got NFL size, hands, and ability to separate. His YAC is ridiculous. Just saying, from a value standpoint, I'd pass on Bryant who is overhyped.

read it & weep if you like but I have no problem with Dez. you witnessed how the loss of Owen Daniels hurt the Texans WHO ARE razor thin in regards to playmakers, imagine if Andre goes down for any extended time without an upgrade @ WR :headhurts:

2. Nate Allen, FS South Florida
3. Toby Gerhart, RB Stanford

Yeah, I agree, we need another play maker on offense. If you can't get one at RB, then a burner is acceptable.

I agree, we need playmakers. I think Gerhart could be one, and he wont last to the 3rd. Gerhart will have to be our second pick.

No way.

We've got a glut of good WR's and a joke of a run game.

Our D-Line is still a joke and we're gonna need another CB this offseason. Not to mention, we still need a stud Safety.

If OD can't get back to where he was, then let Rick Smith work his magic and get another 4th rounder at TE.

Not to mention, we all saw the 3-ring circus that was Crabtree this offseason. We don't need MC Hammer hanging out on our sideline either.

Great post. Everything here is 100% correct.

Man this hurts so much to say. OD was a Casserly pick.

Considered it.

Pass. We need help on the defensive side of the ball at mutiple positions, and our offensive line is hurting.

I dont have a problem with drafting a WR. Just would rather get help at a critical spot, then worry about WR in the next couple of rounds.

We've got a glut of good WR's

you've got to be kidding me :shades:

without Andre Johnson, due to injury or contract (#1 WR in the NFL 1237yds 8 TD's) the next WR the Texans have is Kevin Walter ranked #59 518yds. 1 TD, #108 David Anderson 326yds. 0 TD's, #130 Jacoby Jones 276yds. 4 TD's & #317 Andre Davis 28yds. 0 TD's. If that is your opinion we've (Texans) have a glut of good WR's then I don't want you to be our GM or Texecutioner to do a coaches search because he thinks Kubiak has all these multi-faceted WR's @ his disposal :gun:

No...

1:....we have other more pressing needs

2:....He's not all that good imo, he just has the measureables that pro scouts fall in love with.

I know we have other needs, but I have a feeling that Bryant is going to be a game changer. There is still a lot that we will learn about the young professional and player in the coming months, but based on what I saw him do on the field he needs to be in the conversation if available.

If he falls to us we probably have to take him. Especially if Earl Thomas is gone. Playing with Andre would only make him a better player. He reminds me a lot of Brandon Marshall, even if he does have an attitude he is still one of the best. Having AJ as the 1 and Dez as the 2 and Jacoby or DA in the slot could be deadlier than Fitzy and Boldin. He would be a BPA pick for sure.

Dez Bryant
Kyle Wilson
and than priority picks from here on.

I think in the off-season we will make the signing necessary to get this team to playoff contenders.

And I am really pulling for Arian Foster.

I would rather draft Mike Williams of Syracuse in the 3rd or move JJ to Walters spot and draft McCluster to play the slot in the 4th.

What I would really like to see happen is McNair open up the checkbook and sign Meachem and Ronnie Brown in FA.

They could do this by using the $ that would be saved by not resigning Dunta and KW.

They also should be able to save $ on OD and Pitts because they are coming off injuries. So there should be plenty of money available for FA this offseason.

I think KW plays an important role in this offense and is often under appreciated

Not sure I would throw a whole lot of $$ at Ronnie Brown either as he's coming off an injury , rather not have a repeat of Ahman Green. He's a real good back when healthy but RB's tend to have a short shelf life and an injury can ruin the best of them.

IF Pitts stays in Houston , I think its on the cheap , cant say that about OD after the type of season he's had , even with the injury. Of all the expiring contracts on the Texans , OD and Ryans bother me the most , they should have taken care of those two prior to the season.

As for Dez Bryant being available when the Texans pick , you would at least have to consider him as an option - there could be many trade offers to consider as well. That said , I dont think its very likely that he's available when the Texans pick comes around.

I think there are some really good WR to be had in round 2 or 3. I'm praying for Jordan Shipley.

I think I'd do backflips if they could somehow manage to snag Shipley in the 3rd .... Somehow I dont see him lasting near that long.
