as you can imagine now he is not a top 15 prospect, to me, I could be wrong, its early, who knows for sure? things can change, starting with the new coaching hires, if, & I mean if the Texans go with a 3-4 coordinator B.J. Raji would zoom to top of the Texans board. its not that I don't like him its more like I see him as a natural 3-4 NT. in this scenero I would welcome him aboard
I doubt the ones bolded are on the texans board. I would be surprised if any of the underlined are. Of the ones left Raji is the player that would help the most IMO.

Im not trying to dissagree with you im just going by MY big board which I put together based on what I think the Texans needs and wants will be. The Texans already have shown that they are not afraid to take a player earlier than hes projected if he is atop of their board. They did it last year with Brown.

I have watched Raji a couple of times this year and he impressed me alot. You just dont see guys his size with that kind of quickness of the line. He also is extremely agile. He did a spin move in the game against Vandy that blew my mind. My bet is after the combine he will be the top DT and a sure fire top 15 player. Of cousre as you stated, I could be wrong its still early.
