I think the following trades are not only possible but good for all teams. Detroit selects LT then trades 1st round # 20, a 3rd and a 5th to Texans in a trade reminiscent of the D. Brown trade down. They then select @# 15 QB Matt Stafford. Texans trade # 20 pick first round to Atlanta who selects either DT Peria or a LB. Texans receive 1st round #25, a 3rd and a 6th.
Texans then trade #25 to Detroit for the 33 pick over all (1st in 2nd round) and a 4th. Detroit has 3 first round #1,# 15 and # 25 picks to bring them back into contention but give up a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.
2nd:NT Ron Brace
E Robert Ayers or if not there Rashad Jennings RB
3rd: FS Rashad Johnson
3rd:OLB Marcus Freeman great against run or pass. Plays ILB also
3rd:OLT Xavier Fulton http://cookies.sportsline.com/nfl/draft/players/517608
Read the 2007 season report. Great player for ZBS.
4th:OG Trevor Canfield no legal issues over one year. May be gone.
4th: ILB Daniel Holtzclaw
4th:O.G. Louis Vasquez Texas Tech 6'5" 333lbs Great strength. This is the Sage pick and I just could not keep this guard off my board. He started 22 and will have to beat out someone. His weight bothered me but TT is known for Oline blocking for passes and he does well against the run.
5th:RB Cedric Peerman http://www.walterfootball.com/draft2009RB.php
5th WR Aaron Kelly like Vasquez, I can not keep him off the board. Size, speed, vertical! I'd like to see him lined up inside the 20 with Johnson.
6th: RB Gartrell Johnson . This guy runs like a tank and would be the short yardage guy.
7th: P Kevin Huber http://www.walterfootball.com/draft2009PU.php
Good candidate that I would hide on P.S. if he did not beat out Turk.
