This is simple, just rate in order what you think are the Texans needs right now, kind of like how you would draft the positions if the players were avaliable. Here's my list.

1. defensive tackle
2. running back
3. corner back
4. center
5. safety
6. more offensive line help
7. more defensive backfield help

Obviously it's going to depend on how the board falls and Dunta's situation, but my best case scenerio with Dunta remaining a Texan:

1. DT
2. C/G
3. RB
4. DB
5. DB
6a. Oline/Dline
6b. Oline/Dline
7. Kicker

1) C/G
2) RB
3) DT
4) CB
5) G/C
6a) RB
6b) WR
7) PK

With no salary cap, I don't see them letting Dunta go but this will probably be his last year if he doesn't sign a deal soon. The good thing this year though is the first round could be the highest rated guy that's on the board from what's on my first 4 round guess.

This isn't neccessarily the overall needs I see the team having, but the order in which I think that (if filled) would lead most quickly to the playoffs.

This is really tough because it depends who is still on the board. Here is my guess to it though.
1.C/G
2.Defensive Tackle
3.Safety
4.Running back
5.More Offensive Line help
6.Kicker
7.Whoever we can get that has potential

Normally I would be right with the DT crowd in the first round, but I really like Florida's Pouncey. He is a good size and very athletic center who in my opinion would be exactly what we need on the line. He can also play G if needed. I think the draft is deep enough in DTs that we could still get a decent DT in round 2.
If Pouncey is off the board, I would then start looking at DTs.

1. DT (and that's just criminal after all the time we've spent trying to get that done)
2a. RB
2b. CB
2c. C

Past that I'm thinking BPA. I look at the team and I don't see any deep gaping holes. The OL needs an anchor, not an overhaul. The DL needs a wrecking ball on the inside, again not an overhaul. The secondary needs a better FS but even if Dunta leaves we're still in ok shape with Pollard, Quin, and Reeves. at RB we need a starter to either emerge or arrive but the group isn't terrible I don't think.

No matter where you look you see groups that of course you could try and improve but only a couple of spots where you must improve.

My list is based on the fact that I believe that the RB, and OL situation can be addressed in FA, where as the secondary and DL situation needs to be addressed early in the draft, and the OL/RB can be take care of later for depth.

I have FS at 5 because of Eugene Wilson, but the depth behind him is non-existent. So, I would still take Earl Thomas in the first round despite this not behind our most immediate need.

Updated with new votes.

Here's the voting by round so far.

1. DT and RB tied, and by a large margin over other positions
2. C/G with CB a close second
3. DT with RB a close second
4. DT and RB tied, with CB a close second
5. C/G and S tied
6. OLine and RB tied
7. Kicker

To get a better idea what yall think is most important, I tallied the votes and assigned them a rating. Round 1 picks get 7 points, round 2 picks get 6 points and so on. Belows is the highest vote getters by position.

RB 136 points
DT 132 points
C/G 115 points
CB 109 points
FS/S 84 points

So, SURPRISE! Yall think RB and DT are the two most important things in the draft. LOL

I would like to point out that Mario and Smith's abilities are being used inefficiently without a strong DT creating pressure. Fixing that problem effects the entire defense. It needs to be our first priority.

Also, I'm a huge Earl Thomas fan, but if he came to Houston he'd be a corner. Too short for FS.

I think DT is the greatest need but I don't like 1rd DTs. I think C is probably the 2nd greatest need but don't think it's bad enough to go in the top 3 rounds.

I would love for you to be right about this guy and have the Texans bang the hole for a dominant interior OL finally!!! I wasn't too impressed with his Senior bowl performance though. Do you think Iupati at LG and Caldwell at RG can compensate for Myers at C in terms of getting some push in short yardage situations?

Depending on what the Texans do in free agency here is my list.


Draft Needs:

1. Running Back - The Texans were one of the worst in the NFL!!!!
2. Defensive Line - The lack of a pass rush is still there even though the defense played better.
3. Safety - We need a free safety with range & brains in the worst way this may come in the F/A market should I say Antrel Rolle once he is cut loose?
4. OL - we need better blocking in the running game period.
5. CB - Never can have enough good corners.
6. WR - Andre can use some help.

I resemble that remark....

Or

they realize there are sixteen draft able and ranked in the top one hundred running backs. There is no need to panic a reach for one in the first round. That is not shrewd drafting. I don't wanna guess we have holes for the rbs. I wanna know we have holes for the rbs.

Do you think Iupati at LG and Caldwell at RG can compensate for Myers at C in terms of getting some push in short yardage situations?

Absolutely. it's very rare to have a guy this big move like a zbs lineman. and what I can guarantee you is that there will always be Spiller's and Mathew's on the board. As good as the passing game was, if you want a championship, gotta run the ball in December and January. One dimensional teams are usually one and done in the playoffs. I want a ring. Iupati gets us closer to that than the HR hitting running back. Call me crazy, but if Iupati falls he's the pick.

I reckon I screwed up on my list. I went by how I'd like to see them drafted, not by need.

I definitely think RB's a huge need, I just don't think we're using a 1st rounder on one.

Interesting article on Football Outsiders relating to our running game and Dunta.

http://www.footballoutsiders.com/four-downs/2010/four-downs-afc-south

"And the problem wasn't the Texans' offensive line, it was definitely Slaton; his teammate Ryan Moats ranked second in the NFL in Success Rate, and Arian Foster would have finished second in the league in DVOA if he had carried the ball often enough to qualify."

Not saying we can count on Moats and Foster being the guys going into the season but its interesting that in their opinion the offensive line wasn't as bad as perceived.

As for Dunta: "The Texans got plenty of quantity from Robinson last season (he played every game for the first time since 2006), but not much quality, as his level of play slipped badly."

well obviously they didn't watch the first fourteen. There were no holes. Very few any way. And I don't care how good or fast the guy is, if there are no holes you're not going to have a rushing attack. No matter who the Rb is.
Ryan started the trend the very first game. Rush every gap, if its a run you have the stretch and waggle pass play Dead on arrival. If it's a pass keep going to the QB. And until they, our young guards, prove that they can defeat that strategy, guess what ? They are going to going to see it every week in 2010. The eye in the sky doesn't lie. Our lineman couldn't block it....for fourteen games. I don't give a flip who says they can. They were watching stats instead of game tape.
