we can get a good DL in the first round, maybee Dan or Sean Cody, Erasmus James if he falls that low, or that Spears guy. we can get a could reciever in the 2nd round, maybe roscho parish out of miami, and we can always get a good OL in the 3rd or 4th round

I think they are trying to get hotter hot sauce in the Reliant kitchen area. "A long time coming" was heard in the background the other day according to sources.

Casserly was on foxsports last night, and he said that this is pretty much it for the first wave. He said its a mad scramble at first, but everything has cooled down. He said it will pick back up here in a couple of weeks with the second wave (not sure what he meant by that). And then he stated his usual: Drafting BPA with the first pick, and that they've ruled out (as always) QB with the BPA....but, what caught me is that he said he would possibly draft a QB in the second, if there was an excellent pickup.

What Casserly was referring to is that the "biggest" name FA go in the first week with a ton of fanfare. After these players go team see where they are at. The 2nd level (and better bargains) or wave usually involves guy life Bernard and Lehr..lots of boring transactions that we all ignore, but are better values for their performance.

sidenote: the team that has been good at getting moderate to low price FA is NE.

James projects to an OLB in a 3-4 as does Dan Cody. Shaun could possibly play DE, but he's not the 13th best player in the draft so the Texans would have to trade down.

Receiver is deep enough to take one later unless a Mike Williams or Troy Williamson is there although I still don't know if they take one at that spot.

Mel Kiper's latest mock draft has the Texans taking LT Alex Barron from the Seminoles. I think this is the best player for them in the 1st round. Protecting Carr should be the first priority.

What if we traded Sharper, cut Foreman then signed Burress for say $3.5-4 million a year? Then we can go into the draft and get a stud LB or even actually draft the BPA.

as far as free agency is concerned...yeah this is about it...from the houston chronicle article this morning it sounds like we'll only sign rocky bernard if we are unable to re-sign jerry deloach...personally i'd like to see us re-sign both of them and make the rotational guys more competitive...as far as a reciever casserly said he doesn't want two number one type guys on his team...he wants andre and then the other guys...so basically the only addition to the recieving corp will be done in the draft...as for o-line...besides matt lehr there has been virtually nothing else mentioned with the texans name...so i see us only looking at the draft for new talent...what to expect from the training camps and preseason? i actually think brandon evans might push out fred weary or milford brown out of the 53 man roster...i think evans is a stronger more athlete gaurd than either one of the other guys and i'd look for us to draft a offensive tackle in the first day of the draft and him to be the main back up for wand and wade unless barron is that guy then you could look at him to push wand for the starting LT position

Here are some rfa that Pasquarelli posted on ESPN




Here is a look at a dozen other three-year veterans, all with compensation levels below the third round, who could generate interest before the restricted free-agent signing period ends on April 15:

• RB Najeh Davenport, Green Bay (compensation level: fourth round): A big (251 pounds) and powerful tailback who will run over people in the secondary, Davenport has averaged 5.1 yards per carry in three seasons. He has never started a game but appears capable of being a workhorse-type back.

• LB Scott Fujita, Kansas City (compensation: fifth round): Surprising that the Chiefs made him the low-level tender because he is a quality defender, quick and active, and has started the past 2½ seasons. A player with compelling length (6-feet-5 and 250 pounds) and good movement skills. Over the last two seasons, in which he started every game, Fujita has 204 tackles, 8½ sacks and six passes defensed.

• DE Carlos Hall, Tennessee (compensation: seventh round): Long, lean outside pass rusher who started 13 games as a rookie in 2002, filling in for the injured Jevon Kearse. Posted eight sacks that year and has 13½ sacks and 120 tackles in 45 career appearances. At 261 pounds, might not hold up against the run over the long haul, but at worst would be an intriguing "nickel" player.

• DT Rocky Bernard, Seattle (compensation: fifth round): Only three starts in 42 regular-season appearances, but just 25 years old and a very active inside player. Has 9½ career sacks and, while not a masher, can get through the gaps and occasionally attack the pocket. Visited with Houston officials last Friday and the Jets are said to be interested as well.

• RB Chester Taylor, Baltimore (compensation: sixth round): The caddie for Ravens star Jamal Lewis for three seasons and very productive as a third-down back or spot starter. Has seven career starts, four of them in 2004, and he averaged 93.3 yards in those four starts last season, including a 139-yard outing. Also had a career-best 30 receptions for 184 yards in '04.

• OG/OT Kyle Kosier, San Francisco (compensation: seventh round): Tough, versatile blocker who has 29 starts in three seasons. Started nine games at left tackle for the 49ers in 2004 and gave a good accounting. His best position, however, is guard. His progress has probably been stymied a bit by the fact San Francisco has moved him around so much to fill holes on its blocking unit.

• DE Aaron Kampman, Green Bay (compensation: fifth round): Neither big nor quick but gives an honest effort every snap and is deceptively productive. Has started 26 games and collected seven sacks. Started all 16 games at left end in 2004 and registered 68 tackles and 4½ sacks. Might be even more effective if his snaps were reduced a bit.

• OG Eric Heitmann, San Francisco (compensation: seventh round): Not quite as versatile as teammate Kosier, but hard to overlook a solid young player whose résumé has 36 starts. Bounced back from a severe ankle injury that he suffered in 2003 to start all 16 games last season.

• FS Brian Russell, Minnesota (compensation: none): Led league with nine interceptions in 2003 but had only one pick last season. Vikings coaches didn't think he was tough enough and that he tackled poorly in space. But as a two-year starter, and a defender who gets around the football, he certainly is worth a look.

• RB Verron Haynes, Pittsburgh (compensation: fifth round): Has never started a game and is probably a player destined to be a career backup, but a very good one. Can do a lot of things for a team, including playing on special teams, maybe returning kickoffs. Was the Steelers' third-down back for much of 2004, and is an accomplished receiver, but also averaged 4.9 yards per carry.

• CB Kevin Thomas, Buffalo (compensation: sixth round): Used as a "nickel" corner by the Bills and that is probably where his future lies. Has just one career interception, but his size (6-0, 182), speed and overall football awareness will earn some interest.

• QB J.T. O'Sullivan, Green Bay (compensation: sixth round): How does a quarterback who has appeared in just one game in three seasons, and has yet to register his first pass attempt, merit consideration? Because O'Sullivan, acquired by the Packers from New Orleans in a trade last season, has good physical tools, pocket presence, a good enough arm and an excellent grasp of the West Coast offense.

I'd be all over Carlos Hall for a 7th round pick.

Erasmus James probably is better suited for 4-3 DE than 3-4 OLB. His forty time at the combine was 4.8 something as was Matt Roth's. That makes them too slow to cover the half backs and tight ends they might get matched up with. Shawn Merriman didn't run at the combine, but he is supposed to run around a 4.6 40 and he played OLB in a 3-4 at Maryland. He would probably be a better choice, as would Demarcus Ware who did run a 4.56 at the combine.



The most interesting thing Casserly is reported (up above) to have said is that the Texans might draft a QB in the second round!!! Bongggggggg! I know they're not that happy with their two young back ups because they sent them off to Europe to evaluate them. And Tony Bank may leave... But a second round QB... I know one QB I wish they would draft... but I was thinking about more like in the third round... Matt Jones QB/WR.

By the looks of it, the team is making a push for Rocky Bernarn and maybe Matt Lehr.
