DD goes for a 3rd at absolute best if we're trading him, but I don't know why we would

Try to stay on-topic guys. This is getting out of hand. If you want to talk about Dom or whatever get a new thread started.

Default Called it months ago.....

Many called me crazy. Said I didn't know what I was talking about, thought the Raiders would not give up Buchanon.......Bam!!!!! Guess who's coming to Texas! I stated months ago that the Texans love AG like the rest of us, but they want youth and another physical corner on the opposite side of Robinson. This will enable the Texans to shut down on both sides of the field, go man-to-man more often and explore more safety and ILB blitz schemes. With Capers being a product of Pittsburgh, this is how the Steelers run their defenses. You have to have at least two physical corners to jam receivers and play man-to-man coverage to be successful AG is slipping a bit. Adding Greenwood adds a tremendous amount of speed in the middle, and another LB who can get back into different schemes. Peek will become a nightmare on the weak side, and Babin will be steady! This "D" will be ranked in the top 10 easily! Now look for the Texans to move down in the draft and pick up Clayton! Not as fast as the WR from South Carolina, but a better playmaker after the catch! :woot

actually, if we give oak the 3rd we got from the drew henson trade, really its only a second and a 6th, and for a young quality starting cornerback, thats a pretty darn good price. considering our success rate in the 2nd round isnt exactly top notch (threads elsewhere), thats a good deal in my books.

Got this on ESPN Insider, looks like we are getting Williamson.....maybe

PLAYER INTERESTED THE SKINNY

Troy Williamson
WR, South Carolina Texans
Vikings Apr. 20 - After acquiring cornerback Phillip Buchanan for a second- and third-round pick, the Texans could feel better about taking a wide receiver at No. 13, and Williamson would be their dream pick. They can consider offensive linemen such as Alex Barron or Jamal Brown, and will look again at pass rushers such as Shawne Merriman and DeMarcus Ware, speculates John Clayton, but Williamson makes sense.
The Texans have added hope of getting Williamson if the Redskins don't take a receiver at No. 9. Williamson could go at No. 7 to Minnesota, but that could be Mike Williams' spot if he's available. The nice part of Williamson going to Houston is that owner Bob McNair is a South Carolina alum.

I hope Williamson is not the guy. He really only produced for one year, but has a world of potential. BUT DOESN'T EVERYONE IN THE DRAFT. Trading for Buchanon, at least you get a seasoned player, that knows the league. If you draft a 2nd round corner or any player, you have no idea what your going to get. Same with a WR in the draft. I believe either Clayton would be a more solid pick for the Texans at WR. Learning curve is shorter, stronger than Williamson, and most say better after the catch. As for many talking about Buchanon's attitude, never a problem at Miami, played with AJ the great so I'm sure they checked with him, and who wouldn't play up to their potential in Oakland........Not many do!!! Houston will work wonders for his career, and vice-versa him for our defense! We need attitude and we got it!

You guys need to try to stay on topic. I'm locking this thread due to its size.

Okay here is my take on all of this. We basically got a 4th rounder for a 6th round pick and this years 2nd. Now we have 4 very capable CBs and he possibly could provide some future talent should Glenn get hurt(remember Glenn has bad hammies). He provides a KR/PR with the "break away speed" everyone here says JJ Moses doesn't possess. If he sux, he is a nickel or even dime back at best for the next two years and we can always draft a corner later, we can then cut him and his money is not a big cap hit.

As far as the cons to this trade, well we don't get to move up for DJ and we don't get to pick in the second round. Who knows, we could still trade draft spots somehow and for all we know, Texans may not even really be sold on him to make that kind of move. At worst in the first round, we trade down and get the lineman we all think we need or stay put and see what falls in our lap. Anything can happen on draft day.
