Exclamation 2005 Draft

Hi everyone, how long...

What do you think that the Texans need the most in this year's draft(2005)? Maybe its a little bit earlier but I think that all of uss know perfectly what our team needs...

For me, its one speedster-pure pass rusher Defensive End (I was so disapointed when the team selected a CB and a LB in the last year's draft, but I have to say that Im so pleased with Dunta's production...), but I still think that we need a major force in the D line, someone who the defenses have to be afraid of.

What do you think about that?

Willy

Default all for it

The Texans need to upgrade their lines.The OL and DL need help.If a can't miss cornerback or LB fell to me I'd consider it.But I would not take an offensive skills player.Why have a Corvette if you don't have a garage to keep it from getting beat up.

"But I would not take an offensive skills player."

I'm sure the team has a list of top players they want. I would like to see them select a defensive player. However, I wouldn't be upset if we select a top rated WR to go along with AJ. Think about it, if we had 2 top WR's we'd be set.

this is most perplexing......the draft, what the Texans need & who will be available? i totally agree that pass rushing is one of two priorities the Texans must address. that being said since Ngata (big NT) is staying in school, there will be no blue chip DT available & pick #13. the 4-3 DE does not fit in the Texans 3-4, the Texans depend on linebackers or secondary to rush the QB in different zone blitzes of which the top two prospects here Derrick Johnson LB & safety Thomas Davis will already be picked. to me it looks more & more like if the Texans address this need with their 1st pick that Casserly will trade down & aquire more picks in the process.

the second pressing need is the offensive line. i'm thinking the ends are set with Wand & Wade but that a stud guard & center are needed. i'm just about finished with my mock draft and this is the direction i see the Texans heading should they remain @ #13. i will post after the conclusion of the games today after all the dust has settled under Mock Drafts thread, then its up to Vinny to plan which direction the Texans go since he will be the GM

My guess is that they will look for one of the top CBs, if not there, trade down. Kind of disapointing that some of the kids are staying in school that could help us. Never know what CC will do though.

I'm of the belief that they'll trade down & go after a stud NT like Antaaj Hawthorne. He's big, strong, & would give us the player we need to collapse the pocket, or tie up 2 blockers on every play. Resign Payne & move him over to the LDE position (Good bye, Mister Walker), & we're set on the starting DL. We should be able to pick up a solid CB in the 2nd round & I'd look to get ILB Robert McCune with our first 3rd round pick. With my 2nd 3rd round pick, I'd take the best OL/DL (David Baas, Ben Wilkerson, Chris Kemoeatu, Luis Castillo) available.

Keep an eye on Jerome Collins (TE) Notre Dame in the late rounds. He could be a sleeper.
