Default 2004 Draft A Success

The 2004 Draft was a definite success. We get a shutdown corner, an awesome DE turning OLB, and...in my opinion the steal of our draft...a safety who, before being injured, was the most feared safety in college football. You are looking at the future of our defense with these picks. Glenn Earl will rehab all season long, much like Willis McGahee did in Buffalo. After this season, Coleman will be released and Earl will take his spot on the field. It seems that Texas will have two of the hardest hitting safeties in the league. And as far as the June 1 cuts....lets just say that Trotter will come trotting back to Texas.

Very interested to see what Earl will become, but don't know about this part as Earl is a SS and Coleman is being moved to FS. Jamaal Lord was drafted as the experiment at FS. The two big questions on Coleman are will he be able to convert smoothly to the FS position including the tackling run support area and if he does successfully convert, will he be happy with FS money when contract talks come up after next season.

I was watching some highlights on the 2003 season and he made some good plays.

If this was fantasy college football, then I'd agree with you. However, we still don't know how successful the 2002 draft was. How about seeing what these guys can do on the field in the NFL!

Glenn Earl was "the mosted feared safety in college football"?

Do you live in reality?

The 2004 Draft was a definite success? Check back with me in two or three seasons.

As far as the Texans going after any more big name free agents after June 1, forget it. They have no cap space. Clayton shows them at $4.4 under and that's mostly rookie pool. Trotter turned them down once before. Screw him.

Hopefully everything turns out how we planned. Im really excited about Glenn Earl after hearing he was a pre-season all-american. Dunta should be a shutdown CB for years and Babin should supply the rush we so desperately need so it all looks good.

Buff,

You are definitely optimistic. I think there are a lot of questions that will take years to answer about this draft.

Also, I thought Earl was playing SS not FS. I thought I read he could push Brown out of his job.

Trotter would be a huge upgrade over Foreman on the inside. I wouldn't mind adding him.

I believe Coleman's contract expires after this season so we won't need to release him. We just won't re-sign him if we are not interested.

Its nice to see you boyz are still at it Everything should fall into place as long as the Texans can stay healthy & avoid the injury bug like last year. I'm most keen on watching the defensive 3-4 scheme optimated with a healthy & talented cast of players. If successfully deployed the Texans will vault from last to near the top in defense against the run & much improved against the pass.

The draft however was not a success on the offensive side though Sloan Thomas may provide some bright spots. Dominack Davis was a great looking rookie RB last year. Can he keep it up this year and avoid injury? I hope so. If not are the Texans that confident in Hollings abilities that he can carry the load? Hence what was a source of strength last year could prove the Texans achillies heel this year. I'll be watching the 2004 RB class closely, Steven Jackson, Kevin Jones, Greg Jones, Julius Jones, Mewelde Moore, Chris Perry, Fred Russell & Michael Turner
