More of an inside out guy but defiently first round grade no doubt about it.
Think your missing a big, tall weapon in receiving department, Texans need someone to target when field becomes compressed in red zone. There are some really intriquing ones both @ WR & TE. Other than that well done, you've earned another dopplebock
I would love for Mario to stay here, but money talks. I can certainly understand why he would want to be the highest paid D player in history. I likewise understand why the Texans can't and shouldn't pay him that kind of money. Mario isn't from here and doesn't have any ties here. I don't see him sticking around.
TimeKiller already said it, but I definitely agree: Cox is Antonio Smith 2.0 without the boneheaded penalties. Cox would be a great prospect for the 3-4 DE spot opposite Watt. The only question you need to ask is do you want a high motor 3-4 OLB or a high motor DE? Both would be great in the Wade system.
I held off on tall WR for a couple of reasons:
1. Hilton was too good of a value in the 3rd and Maze in the 5th
2. After the 4th round, I don't see any WRs that are better than LeStar Jean. I think he breaks out and has a monster camp and forces Kubes to put him in the lineup. He was doing great until his injury. I think he shines now.
Thanks for another Doppelbock!
