Re: Who Do You Want the Texans to Draft?
I'll use this thread for narrowing down our potential selections based on chatter:
I'm hearing Datone Jones DL UCLA would be snapped up if he's there at 27. I have not studied as much tape as I need to, I guess, because what I saw early on was a questionable motor and him get blown out a few times. Can anybody make me love Datone? Likely won't be there for us, but I'm interested in other opinions?
Johnathan Cyprien S FIU I like a lot and would be good with us taking him at 27.
Deandre Hopkins WR Clemson is a favorite of mine. Just looks the part to me and doesn't have the injury concerns of others. Justin Hunter WR Tennessee is darn intriguing, but I can't ignore his hands problems. There's a passel of other WRs that I think fit better in Round 2. No slam dunks, but there will be some quality starters developed out of this class. I'm less expecting WR @27 for us now.
Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame has been recently mocked to us by people I respect -- and a few I don't. Anybody see any holes in his game? How does he compare to a Kyle Rudolph? On TE, anybody see a Dwayne Allen out there this year??? Loved him last year, much more than Fleener taken ahead of him.
Menelik Watson OT Florida I see mocked to us in the first. I see potential there, but that early feels like a reach value wise???
As far as Alec Ogletree LB Georgia being mocked to us so often, I see no way the Texans select him. He's a stone knucklehead. Outside of that, I don't think he's all that. 2nd rounder for a criminal team: Ravens/Bengals/etc.
