In regards to this years draft I would like to see the Texans trade down and pick up some extra picks. Having said that if I were the G.M.(and lets thank god I'm not) I would:

Trade #13 to St. Louis( Rams looking for Barron here) for the #19 and the Rams second rounder.
I would then send the St. Louis 2nd rounder and the Cowboys 3rd rounder plus our 4th rounder to Denver(who is looking to trade down for cap reasons/depth) for the 25 overall pick.
That would leave us with #19 overall, the #25 overall, the #47 overall and the #78 overall with that I would like to see something like thison the first day.

DEFENCE FIRST

#19-Demarcus Ware OLB -destructive force the D needs.
#25- David Baas G/C -The anwser to our problems at center.
#47-Matt jones WR -I believe with the amount of good receivers in this draft he will still be here at 47.
#78- Defensive line depth (best 3-4 linemen left) possibly Castillo or that guy who smoked the pot.

or

OFFENCE FIRST
#19- Mark Clayton WR -undersized but fast with great hands and agility
#25- David Baas G/C -10 year starter (see you latter McKinney)
#47- Channing Crowder - great vision player( sideline to sideline speed), great attitude.
#78- D-Line depth or CB if still quality guy availible to take over for Glenn after a year or two.

Well there it is what do you think? What would you do if you were the GM. Keep in mind the points for picks when making trades.

It would be nice if someone could post the point board for me thanks I could not find it.

I like the first scenario better, but it's growing increasingly likely that Ware won't slip out of the top 15...25 may be too early for Baas, but I wouldn't complain of we got him...If we had those picks, I would take:

19. David Pollack, OLB
25. David Baas, OG/C
47. Odell Thurman/Crowder/Barrett Rudd, whichever is left
78. Wesley Britt, OT

I realize we don't have a WR in there, so maybe you could replace #78 with Jerome Mathis out of Hampton...

I was also unsure about Ware being there and Pollack was my next choice so I really like what you have done there. #25 might be a bit early for Baas but I'm not sure how much longer I can watch people walk past McKinney for easy sacks so I'd jump all over him, if not maybe Miller TE. I'd be happy with any of your choices for the #47 but think Crowder will be the best pro. I think Mathis could be good.

As somewhat of a Razorback fan, I've seen Matt Jones do some incredible things on a football field and would love to have him. Problem is dude ran a 4.39 40 and is 6'6", 240. I don't know that there's a receiver out there that matches his speed and size. I know we all (or most of us) think Mel Kiper is not that bright, but he has Matt Jones going at 31 to Philly.

I also tend to think Ware would be gone in that spot, and Jones is sneaking into the first rd. I'm also not sure that we could get the Stl 2nd rounder in a weak draft. Things like this are not static. What passes for a good value in one draft becomes a poor one in the next. If they offered the 2nd, I would jump all over it though. I'm thinking that this year, it might be a 3rd. It's all just speculation at this point. I am anxious to get to the real deal!
