Love him, I'm a notre dame fan and I can definitely say their defense hasn't seen a leader like him in a long time

I think everybody would. The only problem is, Te'o is probably a top 15 pick. If he dropped to the Texans pick, I would be ecstatic.

However, we could potentially package Tate and our 1st to get into position for Te'o. Maybe.

The guys a great players but he's not needed on this team, he doesn't fit our defense. We'd be back in the same situation as when we had Demeco, a highly paid player in a 2 down rotational position that comes off the field alot. The only way Te'o makes sense for the Texans is if you want him to take Cushings place on the roster. Can he handle pass coverage as well as Cushing?

1st & Tate probably not enough. Talking 10-15 range & would require another pick at least late 3rd. In essence that's late picks in each of first three rounds. For argument sake, Texans win Superbowl. Picking 32nd = 590 points according to current trade value chart. To move up to 11 that's worth 1250 points. Difference of 660 points with 3rd this worth only 116. Tate was selected 58th (320) still leaving a 224 point gap. Texans could then make a strong case Ben Tate is worth a higher 2nd. So if they Rick Smith could sell case Tate is worth the 3rd/4th pick of second round & team dealing pick have/need RB this might happen. That's being very hopeful.

Who knew Texan defense & offense would look so inept against the down trodden Packers. So many holes where to start? Trading away player(s) draft picks, to move up & grab Te'o or any one special player would help for sure but Texans still have multiple needs not just one player away, like we were thinking before the Packers popped our collective balloon on both sides DL, ILB, CB, S, OL while keeping within the framework of salary cap constraints.

That likely means taking a page out of the Patriots playbook and moving down for multiple picks in the 2nd-3rd where you get more value for your salary cap dollar and still find quality players who fit what you want to do.

Teo is being talked about as s heisman candidate. Demeco was not in the same universe coming out.

Unless Teo tests extremely poorly, has some catastrophic injury or gets his talent taken by the football version of the monstars he is not going to last to our pick.

Honestly I'd rather read about more realistic possibilities but don't begrudge people who hope and wish.

I guess, I am dreaming today. But man, I would ready like to see him in the Texans Uni.
