Any thoughts of who the Texans might select now?
It's way early, but I'll take a stab at it. IMO we have two critical needs - improving our pass rush and improving our pass protection. The problem with our first draft selection is finding someone who is worth the early selection and who also fits our system.
Offensively, I like David Baas
- OG (he would be a reach at #12); Elton Brown
- OG; Alex Barron
- OT; Jammal Brown
Defensively, Rod Wright
will be returning to school. Marcus Spears
did not impress this past weekend. Derrick Johnson
did not impress. Ahmed Brooks
will be returning to school. In fact, right now I'm not partial to any of the elite defensive players as a fit for our system, for this early pick.
So I'm leaning toward one of the OLmen.
What really intrigues me, is using our second pick on Haloti Ngata
. A project, he has the potential to dominate on the DL. A natural NT, he has the athletism to also play DE. A junior, I haven't read a clue which direction he is leaning.
