The Texans curently have the #8 draft spot but I think we'll finish the year drafting about 6th or 7th and I'm proposing a trade down with Detroit.
Detroit would get our #7 pick (worth 1500 points on the trade value chart) and Houston would get from Detroit the 1st round pick they got from Dallas a couple weeks ago, currently the #25th pick (worth 720 points). We'd also get Detroits own 1st pick in the 2nd round #33 (worth 580 points) and the 3rd round pick Detroit got from Dallas as well, #89 (worth 145 points) for a total of 1445 points. Detroit would be giving up 2 picks they got from Dallas and only giving up one of their own picks and gaining another high 1st round pick so they could fill LT and QB in the same draft. Gaining the extra picks, I propose our draft would look something like this:
1. Alex Mack-C-California.
2a. B.J. Raji-DT-Boston College.
2b. Myron Rolle-SS-Florida St.
3a. Greg Middleton-DE-Indiana.
3b. Best OG available (Tyronne Green/Auburn, Trevor Canfield/Cincinnati, Anthony Parker/Tennessee, etc..)
4. Rashad Jenning-RB-Liberty (hopefully still available).
5. Bear Pascoe-TE-Fresno St. (hopefully still available).
6. Andrew Gardner-OT-Georgia Tech.
I'm all over the first two , thats for sure.
Dont think this team needs a Safety as much as many believe , Eugene Wilson has played pretty well in @ the FS. The big question is SS and does CC Brown come back from the broken arm well .... Tho I wouldnt mind an upgrade at the position just not with a premium pick at this point.
DE , I'm willing to take a gamble on Tim Bulman , I think the guy has earned a shot at starting , he's got the rest of the season to prove it. If he continues to play well we can look to fix other positions. If not , we find that guy one way or another ...
OLB is a position that absolutely has to see at least one upgrade , wuite possibly two pending the status of Greenwood(damn I hope he's done here) and Zac Diles injury.
RB .... give me a guy who can pound the ball between the tackles and wear a defense down.
QB .... really this is the wildcard position for the Texans. What the hell do they plan to do with Rosencoptor after the season ? He has one more year on his contract but I seriously think he has played his way out the door here after this year. If Rosencoptor is gone who's Cotton Swabs (yeah , he's soft) back-up? I'd look for a veteran IF I was convinced that Schaub was The Man to lead this team .... at this point I'm not sold on that as he's a turnover waiting to happen tho not on the scale of Rosencoptor. If Cotton isnt the man .... You have to look at drafting a QB with a premium pick either this season or next .... Wonder how far Bomar falls ?
