Not really sure how I feel about Maybin at this point, I hear a lot of people projecting him better as a 3-4 LBer but..... there might be some teams switching over that might want a shot at him. Trade down maybe?


As for WR. I don't think it is a priority but I think unless he comes out of nowhere its pretty safe to say the Jacoby Jones experiment hasn't gone very well. Boom or bust on those small school talents. I hope Molden doesn't follow that mold.

Unless we fill some major holes via FA I don't see us taking Britt in the second or Maclin in the first. Would they make our offense better? Yes without a doubt, but we did pretty damn good last year.

What Made Gonzalez such a good pick for the Colts is that they do run a lot of three receiver sets and Stokley was released or opted for FA(can't remember which).

If the Texans are going to draft a WR this year I would say trade down and get an extra pick to draft in the 3-4. I would look at Derrick Williams, Patrick Turner, Mike Thomas or Brandon Gibson. I know some of this guys will go in the 2nd, but I would say we ahve a fair shot at one of these guys without having to invest 1st rd money in some like Maclin.

According to Gil Brandt(Sirius NFL Radio) USUALLY it takes WR a year or two to learn defensive coverages and to be on the same page with the QBs especially when you call an audible..they're few 1st round draft choices(WR) that make the transition in their rookie year. Kubiak and Rick Smith are coaching for their futures and I don't see them chancing it with (Maclin). Louis Murphy 6-3 204lbs. runs 4.33 out of Florida may be the ticket 2nd or 3rd round

I really like Juaquin Iglesias, Oklahoma. he reminds me alot of Anthony Gonzalez, even though they already had Reggie Wayne/Marvin Harrison the Colts selected him in the 1st rd.
Kubiak has never indulged himself yet, Percy Harvin would make an excellent slot guy. I don't think they'll do this.

Defense is the sore side. They have to move up on their defensive constancy to make a move up in the conference. Sometimes the obvious answer is the answer. The QBs take care of the ball better, the infusion of defensive talent should get them over the hump and into the play off picture.
