I put Patterson. Mainly because that's who I think we are getting. Not to thrilled with anyone at our position.

Looks like thems the breaks when you put together a preceding playoff season...

God I want a NT in the first in the worst way. However if all these guys were available I would go with the least sexy pick in cooper. He's a 10 to 12 year starter and pro bowler for us. Don't see anyone else on that list that can compete with that.

DeAndre Hopkins, WR Clemson because he's more polished than the Tennessee guys and it's time the Texans spent a 1st on a WR .

Mostly, I just hope it really is the BPA. Next, I kind of hope it is a WR.

I'm going with Kevin Minter. I think we go LB in the 1st, WR 2nd, OT/OG, NT in the 3rd, S in 4th, and whatever after that.

Datone Jones or Damontre Moore

The need a premium pass rusher to take some of the pressure off of Watt.


Hopefully Short for the reasons stated above.

Margus hunt. If he's not available Cornelius Carradine. Hunt is physically as gifted as any d line prospect you'll find. Plus he's a good football player with a good motor. He plays with a lot of energy. Even though he's 6'8" he plays with good leverage and good strength. Hunt is about as freakish an athlete as there is. But unlike some other guys, his athleticism translates to the football field. I think if Hunt was in a better conference or played more football he'd be a top 10 pick easily.

Hunt would be a rotation player this year and eventually replace Antonio.

I would even play some three man fronts with smith watt and hunt all in at once.

Hunt over Kawan Short to replace Smith?

Short is a nice player but he doesn't have near the ceiling that hunt has. I think if we got hunt at the end of the first it'd be a steal, whereas I think shorts value is late first early second.

I like shorts game, but he can't do a lot of the things hunt can do just from a pure ability standpoint. Hunts ceiling is very, very high.

I've gone back and forth over the last couple months and if we stay at 27 I think hunt provides the most value to this team in the short and long term.

The bolded is confusing to me. What is it that Hunt can do that Short cant? Right now Short is head Nd shoulders above Hunt in every aspect of the game. The only thing Hunt has on Short at this point is that he's a better athlete. There's reall no comparison in the two as far as what they are capable of doing on the football field.

Hunt is a project player. There is a huge gamble in taking him. Great athletes dont always translate to great players. You can say he has a higher ceiling based on his physical abilities but at the same time you have to realize he has a way lower floor. He is similar to Okoye when we drafted him. Not sure at this point we should be gambling on upside. IMO we need to go for more experienced guys that have proven themselves consistently against top competition.

The Buffalo Bills select Ryan Nassib, QB Syracuse. We move down to 41 and get a few more picks. 41 offers some good players at great value.

I think it'll be Hopkins. Can't say i'd be upset, but i think i've made my feelings known about who i think is the better prospect long term.
