Draft D-line on 05
It is my belief that the Texans are going to make a considerable effort in selecting high quality defensive linemen in next years draft. It does not do us a great deal of good in 04' but this is again a long term building process. We'll know if both Walker and Payne will be healthy at that point next year. Even if they are - we need some good young guys to fill in for Walker and Payne's eventual retirement's. Plus it will create a competitive situation for the D line which has almost not existed for the team in these first 3 years.
If Walker and Payne are out - both Sears and Deloach are in. If that is the case I think we will see better production out of both of those guys - Sears especially. It will be interesting to see what happens.
