Just a hunch, but I'm going with Steve Slaton in the 3rd Round.

You're a little late.

Betcha we trade back and grab an additional 3rd round pick as well as a 6th.

All kidding aside. Brit, it appears you have some catching up to do. :)

Um, hey mate, but uh, the draft was in April.

I see that your in England so I will cut you some slack but if you go to NFL.com I believe yoiu can see who drafted who.

I am hoping that we pick up that Duane Brown guy out of VT. I heard he is pretty athletic.

RB? We don't need a running back, we got Stacey Mack. Personally, I think we are going to take David Carr #1 overall in the upcoming draft. He should have a long and prosperous career in Houston. I just can't wait to wear my Boselli jersey. He is going to be great for us. Casserley is God.

My sleeper pick is Chris Johnson in the 1st Rd! :spit:

Wait a minute! We just lost the Oilers and everybody says we will never get another NFL team in Houston. What in--- are you guys talking about? Where is John McClain when I need him?

Based on this post in another thread, I am going to make some assumptions. I normally do not like to make assumptions (you know what they say), but in this case I think some may be warrented.

Back from dusty-nasty-foreign-land and checking in!:fans:

What's cracking - what did I miss?

Assumption 1) Maybe he had a tour of duty in Iraq or some equally unpleasant place.

Assumption 2) the tour was with a British unit, so NFL news was not common

Assumption 3) Given the time diff, several alcoholic beverages have been consumed. :toast2:

So if you add up all the assumptions, you come up with a Brit Special Services guy just back from a hazardous tour of duty, who is doing a little celebrating. :glasshalffull: So given all of this, I choose to be nice and give him a link to the draft.

That's a HUGE reach!! Brown's considered a 3rd rounder at best... :)

That would be awesome, I'd be a fan of that. But I'm still thinking we're going to trade Sage on Draft Day.

That's right, I forgot the time zone in England is almost 2 months behind the U.S.

nfl-brit, welcome back to the land of the living! I hope you and your outfit were successful in your endeavors, whatever they were.

Now back to the Draft. It was held in April, and as far as RB's, we selected Steve Slaton in the 3rd round. He's not the RB I had hoped they would've picked, but I'm willing to let it all play out on the field. Anyway, you can go to NFL.com to see the rest of our picks. Overall, I think we had a good Draft, but time will tell. JMHO!

With Julius Peppers in the draft? Are you silly? What crack front office would do that?

I think Rashard Mendenhall will be available but the Texans will pass on him and draft Steve Slaton in the 3rd.

In other news I think the Texans will trade up to get Jason Babin and give up two first day draft picks for Philip Buchanon.

Brando 06-16-2008 04:46 PM

Re: RB's - who'll fall within reach?
 
The Texans will pass on drafting Reggie Bush and Vince Young to draft some guy named Mario Williams.
