Yeah, isn't that silly? :gun:

yes it's so silly for a "FAN" to get upset when they are anxiously awaiting a draft pick and their team takes a guy no one knows. :wadepalm: Get out of here on your high horse!

Wow! A commercial?!?! Shocker.

Geez.

Ok, so we take the K from A&M in the 5th right?

Fugging Verizon AGAIN. LOL, they are losing potential customers with that commercial. Negative outcome with sniffling mom and daughter routine.

That is no ****! I'm ready to have my Verizon landline yanked already.

NFL Network asking Casserly if he understands drafting Kirk Cousins in the 4th. Of course not. This is the same dude who drafted Dave Ragone in the 3rd round! There is no logic there.

It is silly. Especially when you figure in the fact that said fan has nowhere near the amount of information that these teams gather. Fans get their knowledge from so called draft experts, who are not employed by any NFL franchise. If Mayock, Kiper, etc were nailing all of these picks surly a team would hire them to help run their draft, right. Well that and the fact the Casserly is an NFLN draft expert as well. Every year we see players who were supposed to be great prospects fall in the draft, and usually those guys who fall turn into nothing in the NFL.

wait... What's THIS!?!?

An extensive breakdown of the Texans' draft?

Damn... the spent the whole segment between commercial breaks talking about our Texans!?
And a positive assessment to boot?

Is this ESPN???

After spending the last two days watching them go to commercials when it's our pick, this departure from that patterned behavior is puzzling. Disturbing actually.

Wade (2 picks)
OLB - Mercilus

Kubiak (4 picks)

So this is your response to somebody who disagrees with you. What are, 4?

Yes, I'm saying those, including you, who base their analysis on what the idioits like Kiper and Mayock say are likely to be disappionted time after time. Wrong as well. Why? Because their is ample evidence that the guys paided by NFL owners are leagues better than the gaggle of talking heads paid by ESPN and the NFLN.

There are 32 NFL teams, if all of those teams pass on a player multiple times it is much more likely that their is a legit reason, than they are all wrong and Joe Schmu (or Kiper; because usually it is the same opinion) is right.

It's like this every damn year here, and the funny thing is when that guy everybody was sayign the Texans were stupid for passing is out of the NFL all of the so called draft gurus are seriously quite. The opposite applys as well.

ESPN Draft Central over the internet. They just did a piece with Trent Dilfer leading the charge and Mel Kiper begrudgingly falling in line while the other two guys were total cheerleaders for the Texans. Schuler said they were set up to win the Super Bowl this year and be a force for years.

It was ESPN. Dilfer, McShay, & Mel HairGel broke down the Texans draft - and season outlook - about 30 mins ago.

And it was a surprisingly fair assessment, IMO.

again bla bla bla!!! :cheese:

Obviously you aren't around here (draft section) enough to know what you are talking about. What is silly is you thinking people shouldn't show emotion regarding moves their team makes. Now that is silly!!!! :lol:

Actually I lurk the hell out of the draft section, seen nothing that convinces me that any of y'all know more than the non-paid drfatniks out there. Which means you know less than Kiper and co., and certainly know less and have access to much less information than the scouting departments of all 32 NFL teams.

There is a difference between showing emotion and blatantly bashing a pick for the simple reason that you do not agree with it. I see much more bashing than is healthy. Why? Because it proves people who think they know everything about the draft actually know nothing, or at the very least less than they would like to admit.

But hey, keep on thinking that your draft analysis means anything to anybody other than your self and your collection of fellow draftniks.

Oh, and the repeated blah blah blah bit just illustrates to me that you have no intrest in actually discussing anything. Probably just after validation of your thoughts.

Looks like the Titans got that TE several of you mentioned...

I'm thinking we might draft Randy Bullock in the 5th. If they want him, they can't assume he'll last until the 6th round (though that would be a better place to draft a Kicker).

I'm surpised we haven't drafted any DB or TE to this point.

Your missing the point.

I'm not saying I know more than you are anybody else here or on tv or on the web.

Listen carefully, you, Kiper, LZ or anybody else you want to name not employeed by an NFL franchise knows less about the draft and the players in it than any of those who are paid by an NFL owner to make these descions correctly. So forgive me when I see you saying a pick sucks and instanly don't fall in line. Forgive for entertaining the thought that the people making the pick might, just might, have more information about the player and how he fits than you. Get it?

So with that said, you willing to say you know more about the draft than Rick Smith and the Texans scouting department?

I think they don't value DB in draft this year because with Wade's system you might be better off with other team cuts than guessing in the draft. They took 2 corners in the 2nd and third last year and neither got on the @$#%! field. What a waste.

Load the box with pressure monsters and pick guys for the secondary with experience who won't embarrass themselves and might actually excel picking off panicked QB ducks. Reminds me of a certain 1978-79 Oilers team coached by another Phillips.

Happy with this pick (and for once, it's because it's someone I've watched a pretty good amount)! Kicker is a weird position, though. Wish we could have waited until the 6th, but I'm not sure he would have lasted that long.

So now, something has to give: will Kubiak not draft his TE, or will Rick Smith not get his DB? Or, maybe they will trade to get an extra pick...

Agreed, he wouldn't have been there for our sixth pick and it fills a need.

digitalswim
04-28-2012, 03:14 PM
Yeah it was better to go ahead and grab him now. Everyone knows we don't have a kicker on the roster so the chance of getting sniped in the 6th was highly likely. He did win the Groza Award for nations best kicker so I'm sure there were several teams interested. Besides I hate battling over the leavings in free agency.

With Minnifield it's that injury that people wonder if he'll even be ready for training camp. With Jackson, of course, it's the thug life. He had this to say recently:

"I was young. I was away from home, and I didn't make the right choices back then, and I paid the price. It humbles you no matter how good you think you are. I know the NFL knows all about those issues, and Ihave no reason to back away from them, but I also know that I learned from those errors in judgment. "I am trying my best to keep my focus right and let my talent speak for itself."

I'm one of those who think that with Jackson if he feels like he belongs then he'll chill the hell out. As it is, he might even go undrafted. But I mean, for a 6th to try him out? I just don't see that anyone could go wrong. He's a rare as hell talent.

I've never said that the pros get it 100% right either, just that they have a better track record than the talking heads and the draftniks. If, and when, they don't they tend to get fired.

The pros have access to tape we don't have. They can talk to the player's coaches and find out what the prospect was SUPPOSED to do on that tape as opposed to what they actually did. Some players will look worse on tape than they actually are because mistakes other players made them look bad, the scouts have the ability to find that stuff out.

They have relationships with the kids coaches. They can go back and interview HS coaches as well as their college coaches. They can talk to the kid himself.

They've got a TON more information.

They also have the evaluations of our own players and a better perspective on what we need and what we're looking for and what we're hoping to achieve.

cmon now i think you're selling em short

they have the all 22 view or whatever its called so they get better evaluations with that. most draftniks have their tv angles.

they have workouts (which are more important than combine measurables etc)

proper interviews (ie not your generic media ones either), background checks etc etc

LOL, thanks for the neg rep Marcus. And profanity laced to boot. Hilarious :D I think you are taking this way, way too seriously. I tried to find a post of yours to respond to or even a way to PM you, but I can't even see where you've posted in this thread.

I'll happily defend what I posted before though. I feel like the NFL draft is similar to the stock market. Paid professionals have access to more information, but sometimes more information does not really translate to more knowledge. The most important piece of information out there is the college tape. While we dont' have access to the All 22, its not impossible to get a good bit of information about a player based on what we do have. Thats part of the reason that the "draftniks" process frequently results in a pretty strong simlarity to the actual draft order.

Sure an individual may only get 5-10/32 1st round picks correctly, but the majority of "1st round" guys got picked in or close to the first round.


Why you felt me saying that we have access to a lot of the information scouts do (including the combine being televised) deserved a profanity laced neg rep is beyond me. Take a chill pill, you're quickly slipping on my big board of posters I respect (thats supposed to be a joke)

We're on the board. Our last pick of the day. Unless they trade jacoby for a 7th or something. Hell, I'd take the last pick in the draft for him.

That would really hurt if A, I was a dramatically over sensitive girlish guy like you or B, didn't know you said it out of jealousy.

Lol - good one. Hey why don't you make a list of 25 players the Texans should take, and then as the Texans select a player not on your list, come back and say "oh he should have been on my list too"

Cause you are really really really good at this draft stuff.

Scouts Inc rates him as the #67 tackle prospect
However, their rankings dont' take into account system and since we run the ZBS I can see him as a specialty player?

He's 6'6 300 pounds and runs a 4.8 so thats impressive. Maybe we'll convert him to TE :D

Wow, nice shot! Unless I misread there...

I only dislike picks I have watched. I know nothing about this guy, but am intrigued by his measurables. In fact, in the draft grades I just posted I graded it as a C, since I dont know anything about the guy.

Thanks for all the congrats guys! I am always pleased when ESPN gets butt hurt about what a team does. They may have drafted that kid from Michigan right? But I doubt he does much but play receiver or KR I bet. General playmaker anyway.

Other than this incident, did Dennard have any other issues? Seems out of the blue. Not that I was high on the Texans taking him, as he is just a nickel CB.

Not according to Pelini.

I think he can be better than a nickel cb. He would work really well in a man to man scheme.

I'll be disappointed if the Browns pass on Chase with their 7th comp picks. He's a good kid, just needs to recover from his injuries.

Well hopefully we can take advantage of it now. I agree 100%. I was born and raised a UVa fan, so I would be big on this pick up.
