They need to get themselves in a position like Dallas who took Jones in the 1st and Choice in the 4th . They had Barber but had the luxury of taking a good player because he's good and not for need . I'll bet that Barber's gone next year ... why ... he's on the downside and takes carries away from the other two .
Last year the Texans took OLB ( need ) , pass rusher ( need ) C/G ( big need ) , Blocking TE ( need ) , CB ( need ) . Where would you like them to draft a RB and how much better is a 5th rd. RB gonna be over Foster or Johnson ?
but I disagree in several ways. First, Kubiac has said he wanted Glen Coffee Rb but he was gone. Slaton was not to be "the guy" but bascially a 3rd down back. Folks have been saying for 2 years that Barber will be gone, bound to go sooner or later I guess.
Cushing turned into a great pick, I wanted Jenkins CB who went #14.
2nd Barwin good pick but plays sparsely. Shonne Green RB 5'11" 227
3rd Caldwell can't beat out starter at center or RG or backup Studdard. Andre Brown RB 6' 224
4th 2nd pick Anthony Hill not quite the blocker he was thought to be but will develop. Andre Brown was still on the board. My favorite was Gartrell Johnson 5'10" 219 and taken by Chargers 12 picks later in 4th.
I would have taken Rashad Jennings before Troy Nolan SS in 7th. Jags got him in 7th.
