Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

couldn't sleep, restless night thinking about this draft who the Texans add today should be a lot more exciting from a Texans fans viewpoint after having only the one pick yesterday

anyways yanked out ourlads draft guide (noticed everyone seemed to have a copy @ the draft tables) & looked up Duane Browns rating 7.07 sorry to say that does project to a late 2nd rd. grade. if the Texans had a 2nd rd. pick I think they would have been able to wait til then but he was an ascending prospect & tackle position along with DE has become the flavour of this draft.

last year for instance the Texans used a late 5th rd. pick #163 on a LT from the same school named Brandon Frye. he too was an ascending prospect with exceptional speed, athletic, tough & agile given a draft grade of 6.89. the only difference, he was a former DE instead of a TE. I just don't see the huge gap between picks on paper, either the Texans got a steal in last years draft, or they got fleeced this year, just hope the former is true

Texans made this move to gain more picks (late 3rd & early 6th) but was it enough? the Eagles picking just one spot behind us @ #19 traded their pick (Carolina wanted OT Jeff Otah) giving them 2nd & 4th round picks this year, plus next year’s first-round pick
