Torri Williams, UDFA
Roc Carmichael, 4th round

None of them are particularly old or lousy. At least not since Kareem started playing up to his potential. Maybe use a 5th or 6th on somebody but I'd prefer we go offense as much as possible this draft. Picks 1-4 should be WR, G/T, WR, and G/T in no particular order unless somebody drops to us who we can't believe we have a shot at.

But I wouldn't waste a 1-4 pick on defensive backs just to provide more competition. We have plenty of competition at the position right now.
I agree with you on positions of need and like your thoughts on how you would draft.

But the talent at CB is really deep this yr. If a CB like Cliff Harris/Josh Robinson/Iloka is available you would have to take one of them as they represent BPA and should be better than all of the CB's not named JoJo.

Iloka would be a major upgrade over Demps at S and he can play CB as well. The Texans could use depth at S. IMHO
