Move/merge as needed.

Why is everyone else able to keep their #1 selection under wraps while we go leaking it everywhere? I remember us announcing the signing of Mario the nifht before the draft as well as Carr being mobbed a week prior.

I think there's going to be a top pick trade.

I feel really prepared for the draft this year.

All the mocking we have been doing on here has me familiar with more prospects than ever.

No doubt that will all be for nought, when they draft some guy I've never heard of in the 4th round.

There are multiple scenarios under which I would leave the first round happy, the one I wouldn't be happy with is us taking Mathews at 20 or higher (trade up).

YES, I am preparing to be disappointed and looking forward to being proven wrong.

Not to burst y'all's bubbles, but I have learned my lesson and not concerned myself at all with the draft this year. I don't know who's in it, who I'd want for this team, or whether we should trade up, down, sideways, or diagonally. I will not get upset when I find out who we did get, which will never be who I would've taken (whoever that is). I do still reserve the right to gripe about it 3 or 4 years down the road, though....or as soon as I find out who we got and don't have a clue what I'm talking about. :)

In my ignorant bliss I will just say, "Draft all the best players!" and be done with it for now.

We'll talk later. :slapfight:

Because Carr was as much of a PR selection as it was a personnel selection, and our 2006 #1 pick was contingent on signing prior to the draft. You have to look way back to the 2009 to find another #1 selection, Matt Stafford, who was signed and announced prior to the draft. A rare occurrence, indeed.

10 minutes per pick, we pick 20th so 200 minutes after the draft starts at the very latest.

So that means we'll pick before 10pm Central Time probably.

It starts at 6:30 CT tonight right?

I'm good with any number of players from Mathews, to numerous secondary guys. I really want either a top RB or a top back 4 guy, but if they throw me for a loop and pick another position that is clearly a top flight guy, I'm down with that as well. My dream scenerio is Earl Thomas, but I would say the odds of him being there at #20 are 5-10% at best.

I am starting to just wish Mathews is around at 20 and get it done, but I am getting a bit worried that he will be gone. If he is... then trade back if at all possible (hard to pull of for sure) and gain an extra 2 or 3 to become a bit more flexible with the RB situation. Does Toby last till our current 2nd round pick? Who else is worth that spot at RB that fits what we are looking for? I am afraid of a repeat of last year where the RBs we targeted kept being taken before they got to us. Not to mention a CBs seem deeper in the second round to me.

A lot of #1 picks overall have been announced early, because they did have a contract done before the draft. Bradford has come out and said he will not sign before the draft, because there is still a chance someone can trade up to get him (doubtful, but technically still possible) and because he wants more money. I would not be surprised to see him hold out Russell style (you see how good that did the Raiders LOL).

As for the Texans, I really hope its a DB. I still think that getting a ballhawking saftey (Thomas) or a solid number 1 corner could do us a world of good. I am not sold on Matthews, so I really hope that does not happen. I am all for whatever his name is from Tenn in the third.

Edit: Forgot about the worst case scenario: Spiller. If the whole point of getting a RB to carry the load is that slaton can't take so many hits every season, why would we want another fast RB who can only take about 20 carries a game at 198 lbs. Plus, anyone compared to Reggie Bush is a big red flag for me.

I'm not sure if this comparison has been made but doesn't Dez Bryant remind you of the situation Mike Williams was in? Both WRs didn't play the year before getting drafted and Williams as we all know was a complete bust.

Don't know if this was posted yet, I just saw this over at clutchfans.

The Dallas Morning News' Rick Gosselin annually puts out the nation's most accurate mock draft, and agrees with Schefter's projection. It appears teams are souring on Clausen at the worst possible time for his stock. Other interesting picks from Gosselin's Thursday morning mock: Brandon Graham to the Jags at No. 10, Demaryius Thomas to the Dolphins at No. 12, Ryan Mathews to Seattle at No. 14, and C.J. Spiller falling to the Texans at No. 20.

How many carries/touches a game did DeAngelo Williams and Chris Johnson get? They're not built like Steven Jackson.

The fact is that Spiller has the skills to make a huge impact in our running game. He runs outside, he can hit holes up the middle, he can catch, he can return kicks if we need him to. If he and Slaton and Foster or whatever Goalline back we draft (please, God!) split, then nobody has to take too much beating over the course of a season.

If that's the WORST case scenario, I'll take it any draft day.

I am completely on board with you on this. My top three needs in order are here:

1. CB/FS
2. G/C/DT
3. RB

If we take Matthews in the first, I wont exactly be pissed but I will definately be upset. I think there will be a great G/C/DT there for us to take.

I WONT be upset if we trade up to get Earl Thomas though. That guy is legit.

5. DT

I'd prefer to pick RB and CB in the first 2 rounds but sometimes the board doesn't fall the way you want it to. If the right DT, FS, or OL is sitting there and the right RB/CB's aren't, then we do what we have to do.

I prefer Mathews over Spiller for our situation. But I wouldn't mind Tate or Gerhart. I don't have a good feeling about Dwyer and I don't know why people are liking Hardesty. Hardesty looks like fail to me. I like Mathews in the first but I'm not going to be heartbroken if we go another direction.

I think there are going to be CBs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds that will be able to improve our CB corp and possibly step in as starters and be improvements over DR.

Unfortunately, I think the creme of the FS and DT/NT crop is going to be going in the 2nd and 3rd rounds and our other needs may force us to miss taking some players that we really could use.

Strangely enough I am worried Mathews will be there and the Texans will draft him....

One of us is going to be sorely disappointed.

I'm hoping for Thomas or Wilson, but if it is running back in the first round, I sure hope it is Mathews and NOT Spiller.

I don't see all the problems that people speak of...I know he isn't the best guy in covg., but I think that he is a guy that could step in on day one and make his presence felt on defense...I think if they added Taylor Mays to the secondary it would add to the developing attitude and identity of the Defense...

And I don't think his covg is as big an issue as people think it will be....Once he gets to knocking snot bubbles into recievers coming across the field and running backs slipping past the first line of defense I think whatever fanbase he is playing for will be happy...JMO...

He is a physical specimen at the FS position and from this regimes past history it seems like the Texans like those kind of prospects...

How many carries/touches a game did DeAngelo Williams and Chris Johnson get? They're not built like Steven Jackson.

The fact is that Spiller has the skills to make a huge impact in our running game. He runs outside, he can hit holes up the middle, he can catch, he can return kicks if we need him to. If he and Slaton and Foster or whatever Goalline back we draft (please, God!) split, then nobody has to take too much beating over the course of a season.

If that's the WORST case scenario, I'll take it any draft day.

Ditto. Spiller has a bit of Bush, some Chris Johnson, mixed with a splash of Brian Westbrook, and topped with a slight hint of Marshall Faulk.

I'm not saying I'll cry if they pass on him, but I would be excited about the possibilities and the guy is a threat to score every time he touches the ball.

Manning will eat the guy alive. His hips are slow. I get it he has a great forty and has highlight big shot hits. His straight line 4.3 leads you to believe that that will translate into football functional speed. But that straight line speed doesn't mean jack squat on third and long. He is not instinctive. He can not cover. there is no margin for error in this draft.

Hips matter more for CB's than they do for safety's...If I'm not mistaken, the texans safetys don't play a bunch of man covg and mostly play deep zones...Even if he doesn't have the fastest opening of his hips, I wouldn't be too concerned about it...I'm more concerned about his recognition and closing speed...If he goes to a system where the FS has to play a lot of man, he will struggle IMO...

I'm not into making matter-of-fact statments about players, but I do think that he is a really good physical specimen and opposing teams will have to take notice of him on the field...

I understand your concersns about his covg., but I just think that with the right coaches in a good system this guys has the potential fo be good..

If he has to cover all day long, he will probably not do as well, but if he is able to play facing the QB with a decent pass rush in front of him I think he will flourish...

Might have something to do with Wilson going down and having to rely on Busing and Barber, no? Wilson's the only FS we have that can cover worth a darn. If we had a decent to good FS and a good nickel CB that can cover, then we could do other things in the back end. IMO, of course

They can get a RB in the 2nd (Tate or Tobey G., & CB in the 3rd., a S or DT in the 4th. Hahaha! Anyway, this is just my 2 cents!:voodoo: Draft WELL Texans!

Well if you want him that bad Rey, hold you breath on the fifty one . But I'm telling you unless the guy can transition to will backer he'll be a special teamer only. And if he can't transition to the will he'll be out of the league in four years. If looks and times were all that mattered our pick would be Bruce Campbell the OT from Maryland. At least he'd scare 'em as he was walking off the bus. No one is going to be afraid of Taylor Mays cruzin' our back four. He is dysfunctional in coverage. He doesn't make plays. and there is no coach who can fix that. He's played behind some of the finest front seven football players in football. After four years of watching him most folks get it. He is not instinctive and he does not make plays.

For the love of God no more d-lineman in the first or second round..in fact none at all..that being said count on a DE being drafted..cause what do I know.....

Hmmm wait didnt I predict that not drafting a rb last year would cost the Texans,,and it did.

RB- #1 priority because the four to five year life of a rb matches our window of opportunity...our future is now.
Secondary-If earl Thomas is there then pick in first if not rb

O-lineman protect the #1 passer in the NFL and create holes is always good.



If we draft a DE before those needs are met then I am throwing comp at TV and If I hear tweener I think I will vomit.

Quick question if a team trades up, do they get a new 10 minutes clock or do they have to pick within the 10 minute allocated period of the original team?

About time Bucs..... perhaps you can draft someone to run the card up to the podium a bit faster on the obvious picks.

Ok, Okung or Williams here?

Washington selects Trent Williams.

Three of the first four picks are Sooners.

Sometimes the right thing to do is ignore the birds in the bush and take the bird in the hand.

Especially when the bird you have is one of the best two players in the draft at a position of huge need.

Rumour has it they prefer Okung to Berry... forces better DBs down towards us too.

Great pick by the Chiefs. Berry is going to be a special special player.

kiwitexansfan

Who is in the Chiefs front seven?

I don't care how good Berry is if the QB has time there defence will still get picked apart.

If not the Browns might take him themselves.

Too far to move up, IMO. I want Thomas, but not at that cost.

1. Rams - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
2. Lions - Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
3. Bucs - Gerald Mccoy, DT, Oklahoma
4. Skins - Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
5. Chiefs - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
6. Hawks - Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
7. Browns - Joe Haden, CB, Florida

Raiders on the clock.
