Cool Texans Trade Up BIG

I have come to the conclusion that the Texans have 2 choices. Take Nick Perry @ 26, then trade up in the 2nd to snag whichever WR dropped out of the first round, or trade the house for Justin Blackmon.

Texans mimic last years Julio Jones trade up and swap with the St. Louis Rams who have already cashed in from the Washington Redskins.

Rams Get:
2012 Round 1: #26 overall.
2012 Round 2: #58 overall.
2012 Round 4: #121 overall.
2013 Round 1: #XX overall.

Texans Get:
2012 Round 1: #6 overall.

1.6) Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
Blackmon has 3300 yards and 38 touchdowns on 233 catches over the past 2 seasons. Not to mention 2 Biletnikoff trophies. He will excel as WR#2 and fill in at WR#1 if AJ ever gets injured. I have been watching this guy make plays for 2 years and I would not flinch if this deal, or even a little more was made.



Texans still have picks in round 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 this year.

No thanks. I love Blackmon, but no way I would do this.

I wouldn't have done it for Julio Jones if I were the Falcons, and while Blackmon's the best WR in this year's draft class, I think Jones was and is a better prospect.

Same here. The only player I'd give up that many high picks for would be a QB.

In this scenario I'd stay put and take Nick Perry at #26. Blackmon is the best receiver this year but he's not Julio Jones, who I think is a much better WR, and not worth giving up all those picks.

^^^^
This

The Texans have to figure out Schaub's health before they start making moves like this.

I would like Rick/Gary to consider trading ug to 15 if an impact player like DeCastro or Floyd falls.

Well said bro.. I love Perry, ive been saying that all a long. all the draft gurus have been saying this and that and im thinking to myself ok all these guys have been said but we know Gary and the coaches love high motor guys and Perry definitely fits that description. hed be perfect to move outside and maybe you could move Reed to RILB instead of Sharp. As for 2nd rd, I keep hearing that Randle from LSU might fall to mid to late 2ND so there you go thats our top 2 problems with very solid players.

Absolutely no way nor do I want an OLB in first. We need a starter and a hole filler like Fleener who can play TE and WR. If I were Rams I'd laugh at that offer for #6 as picks too low in each round.

Nope. Deep draft, not worth trading up for one player, especially Blackmon, who is a lot of hype.

Seems to me Blackmon is sliding a bit. He will still go top 12 but maybe not as high as many thought.

Only QBs are worth trading future picks for. And even then, you've got to be sure and a little lucky. No way do the Texans trade their draft for a WR.

The Texans aren't aggressive like this any way. You're right that they would never do this for a WR or even a QB for that matter. They're a play it safe organization.

While I agree with you that trading for Julio didn't net return expected it's just one year, rookie year in fact. This was a long term deal to ensure Matt Ryan had a premium WR & Roddy White good as he is, like Andre, will naturally decline with age.

But atl gave up way too much. Torey smith was just as good and could have been had at atl's pick.

#6: Cleveland → Atlanta. (D) Cleveland traded this pick to Atlanta for Atlanta's first (27th overall, which later became #26), second (59th) and fourth-rounder (124th) and also Atlanta's first- and fourth-round selections in 2012.

Way too much.
