There is another name who scares the crap out of me that the Texans might be looking at who just recently declared UCLA DT Brian Price. Had him @ the end of rd. 1 going to the Colts but the more I see of him the more I'm impressed. I think he is worth the 20th pick
Price in the 1st round scares me. He's a junior and only 300 lbs. I'm afraid that he would not be mature enough, like Okoye, and that we'd have 2 DT's that need to grow up and fill out. Also at only 300 lbs. he seems small to play NT and would seem to be more of an DT/UT. I wouldn't want to take such a big risk on such a questionable player. He seems like he'd be good value in the 2nd round or to a team that has the luxury of allowing him to mature and get bigger if taken in the 1st, but we don't have that luxury. He's to big of a risk/project in the 1st round and he seems very similar to Lamarr Houston who's only a 3rd round projection. I think that Dan Williams has a very good chance of being available at #20 and would be very difficult to turn down. It all depends on what position Kubiak sees as more important OG, DT, RB, CB, or FS.
