3. He does an excellent job covering needs, innovative ideas to aquire such I'm just not down with specific players (like Pouncey twins too).
4. If we are not to be concerned with specific player but focus on position then a better Texans draft to me would be as follows, with power RB over change of pace RB-
priority #1 FS - Taylor Mays, USC (E) or Earl Thomas, Texas (YTD)
priority #2 RB - Toby Gerhart, Standford (E) or Ryan Mathews, Fresno State (E)
priority #3 C - J.D. Walton, Baylor (E) or Maurkice Pouncey, Florida (YTD)
priority #4 DT- LaMaar Houston, Texas (E) or Stephen Paea, Oregon State (YTD)
priority #5 CB - Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, Indiana (E) or Walter Thurmond, Oregon (IR)
priority #6 OG - Thomas Austin, Clemson (E) or Marshall Newhouse, TCU (E)
prioirty #7 RB - Andre Dixon, Connecticut (E) or Brandon James, Florida (IR)
E = Eligible
YTD = Yet To Declare
IR - Injured Reserve
