Here's my game plan for the Texans:
1.) Get Earl Thomas or Joe Haden
2.) Maurkice Pouncey
3.) Toby Gerhart (?) or Mitch Petrus (He can be coached and had a solid senior season from what I saw)
4.) Kade Weston (Maybe early but at 6'5" 325-lbs he can stop the run and get to the QB, I just think he is something special.)
5.) Get a CB or some defensive player
6.) Get another offensive player
7.) Zoltan Mesko (Punter)
FA get a kicker to compete with Kris Brown.
Bolded above is a good idea if it works. Remember Kubiac saying he wanted Glenn Coffee who went before we selected? The last two years Kubes had stated the priority need of a big back that can get short yardage and first down or move the pile to keep our D off the field and to score in the Red Zone. We have failed at that miserably. A Gerhart type that has carried the rock for almost 2,000 yards & seems to get stronger the more he runs reminds me of Earl Campbell. Why wait on someone you HOPE is there? No thanks. We can get a cover corner (Kyle Wilson), a power feature back who found the end zone 28 times(TG) a center in JD Walton that is one of two players that might beat out Myers first year. Let's do that.
