I was toying with the idea of trading up for Peterson.(Peter King almost had me). Then I looked on Walter football and saw that this cat Davon House would probably be available in the second round...I think we'll look for a 3-4 rusher in round 1 and aquire our DB in the second...I like this guy and it seems Davon House can help us without losing our draft pics.................... Davon House CB, New Mexico State
Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
Combine 40 Time: 4.43.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.35.
Benchx225: 14. Vertical: 33.5. Arm: 31 7/8.
Projected Round (2011): 2-3.
3/19/11: Davon House blew up his Pro Day with a 4.35 40. He really improved his chances of being drafted in the second round.

10/9/10: House needs to put on some weight, but there is no denying he is a cover corner with added ball skills.

5/13/10: Voted to the All-WAC First Team thanks to 13 pass break-ups and three interceptions as a junior. :texflag:

I've said all along I think House is the best man cover guy in this draft outside of Peterson.

I would wait to take him until the 3rd & thats mostly based off size & Texan needs. He has been downgraded by too many scouting services for my taste to select round two. Jimmy Smith is easily the 2nd best CB in this draft for me.

Boy if he's there in the 3rd that would help so much.

Do you think there's any chance Jimmy Smith goes ahead of Amukamara? Everyone pegs Prince going top 11, I'm thinking he goes after us... maybe a team like Detroit takes Smith over the Prince!?

3 days... 3 days!!

I'm hoping Amukamara is off the board by #11 so the Texans aren't even tempted :ahhaha:

I like Smith much better as well. So does anyone think Bob(B):D will waiver on his cleaniless standards? Or should he.

Real question.

I think with the recent arrest of Agib Talib(how ever you spell it) the Texans may be gun shy on pulling the trigger on Jimmy Smith...so much baggage, SW Airlines charges him for it.:spin:

Aqib Talib was a name discussed in great length around here during the 08 process, I believe YoungTexan was a big supporter of selecting him & as far as his on field ability certainly justified #20 pick. If Tampa is going to release him as reported, then that creates a huge void & need to find a replacement with Jimmy Smith in the crosshairs, but who would be more gun shy?

not really all that impressed with this kid & the only way i think we should take him in the 2nd over the brandon harris's/ Jimmy Smith's/Ras I Dowling's is if we've got multiple picks in the 2nd. He's an early 3rd rounder at best b/c he doesn't have the elite speed & he's got lazy footwork & he's also "handszy". That's a recipe for disaster for a cb that will be left on an island quite often in a wade phillips agressive defense.

Disagree, Have you watched House play? His only real weakness is run support. If the Texans dont take him in the 2nd the Lions/Cowboys will take him in the 2/3rd.

Bah, it's good to see that great minds think alike. LOL

Greg Cossell interview would beg to differ on House, call's him a difficult watch.

Jimmy Smith has it all...probably better than 'Prince'....Still no way he will warrant a top 10...too many issues...Aqib Talib had red flags and Tampa took a chance...that bit 'em. I honestly believe because of that Jimmy Smith is gonna fall..The Eagles may snag him...good luck...He's an awesome talent though Beer Lover...I still like House in the second...he'd be gone by the time we pick in the third...:smiliedance:

Better is a relative term. Prince is far more physical, a better tackler and great in the shallow areas.

I never wavered on Talib's talent. I told everyone he was the best CB in the draft. I was right. However, I'm glad he's not on my team. He's been a headcase since his days at KU. He failed a few drug tests here and was suspended. This isn't new for him, it's been a pattern. I love to pull for him on the field because of KU, but man he makes it look like he graduated from Mizzou.

Prince is going to be a great cb as long as he's in a tampa 2. The best part of his game is that he's so physical & drives on the ball extremely well...those are trademark tampa 2 qualities. It's apparent he's best when WR's are kept in front of him. If he's forced into a man press cover 3 scheme, he will be a bust...basically you'll get far more of those Justin Blackmon type games.

Like almost any CB, they struggle without adequate safety help. I expect Prince to start in the NFL for 10+ years. Not a bad draft pick at all.

yeah but his skill set is best suited for tampa 2 imo..he just looks uncomfortable with man coverage.

I agree that Prince would be far more successful in a Cover 2 defense. That's not to say that he can't be successful in any other defense, I just think his skill set is maximized there.

But on tape he gets beat like a buck-toothed, red headed step child by upper tier colegete recivers. How will that change in the NFL?

Eh the only guy that really toasted him this year was Blackmon, who toasted pretty much everybody this year.

It cracks me up how a top 3-5 prospect all season when actual football gets played gets nitpicked to bits and loses all value when they are only running around in shorts and getting measured and stuff.

Ridiculous.

Those are the guys that fall in the draft and then years later when they are in the Pro Bowl people are talking about what a steal that guy was when he was drafted.

Yep.

I'm sure there are guys with potential who need coaching to reach hidden potential, but generally if you can play football really, really well in college, you can probably do that pretty well in the NFL.
