Texans seem to have a nice rotation going inside with Travis, Amobi Okoye, Deljuan Robinson & they addressed this need for good measure with a 5th rd selection Texas Frank Okam just this past year, give him some time to develop. lets see who the new DC is & how he is able to transform the players around him in particular the DL.
Thanks Buddy! That means a lot coming from you. While they are important, I find myself far more interested in the third-7th round picks than the first two. I figure that anyone you get with your first two picks should be starters or at least solid depth. Anyone can take a first rounder and make a good pick. Look at the Lions for instance. Was it really that tough to select a Calvin Johnson or an Ernie Simms?

The good teams are the ones that can consistently find gems in the 3rd-7th round. I think finding a gem there is more exciting and thus where I tend to spend my time.
