NE should make this offer if Fletcher is still on the board, would you do it if you are the Texans?
#30 New England/Texans (Acquired from New England)
Rueben Randle, WR, LSU, 6-4 208
Has the tools to develop along side Andre Johnson mentoring.
#48 New England/Texans (Acquired from New England via)
Jonathan Massaquoi, OLB, Troy, 6-3 250
New name to throw in mix, Wade had some luck with another guy from Troy. Massaquuoi projects to a 3-4 OLB pass rusher keeping a nice rotation intact.
#58 Texans/New England (Acquired from Texans in 1st rd. pick swap)
Harrison Smith, SS, Notre Dame, 6-2 212
New England would love to address safety need, should still be on board here.
TY Hilton, WR/KR, Florida International, 5-10 184
Primary duties would be returner, could surprise as 3/4 WR who can stretch the field.
Massaquoi? Watchin him try to tackle against the run is painful. I pass, even in the 3rd. T.Y. Hilton I like, he'd be a nice slot receiver and returner to boot. His ball security worries me though at the pro level. And Randle would be just fine with me. I think the WR class is so deep that we could go after LB talent in the first for potential Ryans replacement and address WR in the 2nd rd and later.
I intend to live forever... so far so good.
