Can't give someone who hasn't played a down in the NFL an A. But I do like the pick because we need quality depth in the secondary and he can potentially replace Ed Reed when he's done.

How does this make any sense? - it is grading the draft pick not their performance in the NFL. Mind boggling how people make up their own goofy standards.

What a great athlete: power, agility, a nose for the ball, coverage skills. However, all the potential day-1 starters at ILB are going off the board. So, I'm mixed. I'm happy the Texans got such a football player, yet I'm still scared to death over how soft we'll be in the middle next to Cush, when have to play the Pats again to get to the SB.

One can only hope that Wade invents more ways to get Swearinger on the field.

I'm very ehhhhh on this pick. I think he's short to be covering TE in the NFL and we need a guy with coverage skill not hitting ability. There were better prospects available.

Don't know a damn thing about this guy, but I'm surprised by the position ?
We NEED LBs ( both inside and outside) and RT much more than a safety, and no doubt after first round most teams draft by need first and most of all.

No freaking way!

AJ Klien , Kevin Reddick & Nico Johnson are still on the board and should be there when the Texans pick in the 3rd and possibly 4th.

Not to mention Khaseem Greene , Chase Thomas , Zaviar Gooden & Sean Porter who may make a move inside in the NFL.

That 2nd ILB isnt likely to see the field anymore often than Swearinger.

I thought we had other pressing needs, I thought our secondary would be ok, I would have rather seen us take ILB, but understood that the ravens picked up the ILB we wanted..

First pick I loved it.
Second pick I am mixed on.

A lot of serviceable LBs...but is it too much to ask for a Willis & Bowman combo for the Texans?

How about Geno, Mark Sanchez, and New York Jets?

We took Amobi instead of Willis . I think Bowman was a 3rd rd pick .

I gave this a B, partially because I haven't seen enough of Swearinger to be in love with him. I think it is a fit as far as need is concerned. He could end up seeing alot of time on the field, even being the 3rd S on the team. I'm more at a B+/A- on this one.

Think about something here - That second ILB is not going to be on the field on passing downs. We already have Cushing who will be on the field in those situations - this team played its nickle/ dime package more than any other team in the league last year.

I talked about a hybrid LBer / Safety several times in the draft discussions but didnt think they would look for that guy so early - they got a hell of a player here who fills a huge need with Quin walking.


Why pay Willis & Bowman when one of them is on the bench 60% of the time ?!

Well I guess the alternative is doing what the 49ers do and keep both guys on the field pretty much all of the time. That would take some adjusting from Wade though so who knows if he'd be willing to do that.
