Now that would be a bold set of moves on the Front Office's part.
Yeah, Berry or Thomas are the only guys id move for. Wll, Sueh, but nada chance at 13.

With our line backers I don't believe Earl Thomas will have a lot of exposure. I'd move up for Thomas or Iupati. Every thing else I could find in rounds two through four. So could a lot of others on the board. We've been doing it for weeks. The two biggest holes are the interior of the o-line and the back four. Up to you to figure out which is the best way to slay those two dragons.
Why does drafting Spiller indicate Slaton has to go? Anyway, I consider Spiller a possible franchise back. Slaton is not. As of today, we have nothing that says SS will or will not be back. We have more to go on that Eugen Wilson will be back and that Quin/Reeves will be starters but we discuss drafting corners and safeties in the first round..

If I had Spiller in first and knew I could get a 4th for Slaton, I think that would be a done deal. Thanks for the suggestion.

Many of us have disagreed with you on the Oline needing to be addressed in first or even 2nd rounds. Most sites I review say CB and RB first two rounds.

Well we'll get to see how many no holes Spiller can run through as opposed to Steve Slaton I guess ? Don't give him a number just paint an "S" on his chest. We're done for 2010 as soon as they draft a corner or a speed scat back in the first. JMHO. Waited eight years guess I can wait another eight.

Set up the starting oline as you see it for next season if a CB/FS and Spiller drafted.

He is a very good prospect, but he is not one of the best FS prospects to come out in years. And this is coming not only from a guy who pays attention to the draft, but a HUGE Longhorns fan.

Mike Mayock disagrees with you. He came out and said" He is the best free ranging safety to come out in six years. " He does this for a living. I would be OK with the move up and the loss of the two. We do not know for sure if he can or can not play corner. But next to Pollard, he could cover up all the warts with all the CBs and DBs we currently have on the roster. Further, if we're moving up to nine I would expect it would be to get Thomas or Iupati, and not the under sized Spiller. They both solve major holes on the team . And each elevates his side of the ball to the point it would raise the team as a whole.

Pick your left guard. the only question if they are holding the line is if Briseil is coming back. If they hit on Newhouse and he can transition


Brown Newhouse Myers Brisiel Winston. everyone is all over the board on who the interior o-linman pick will be. rumor that we're moving up to nine, gives me hope someone on Kirby is coming to their senses.


Brown Iupati Myers Briseil Winston.

Won't matter who the GD back is.

Default Re: San Francisco & Texans trade?

I really like Iupati as a prospect but he's just too raw for me to think he'll be a major impact for the 2010 season. I may trade down and select him and play the waiting game on a potential dominant guard but I don't give away picks to move up for him. Him being Iupati

Spiller and Thomas are guys it looks like we'd have to move up for to get. The more and more I think about Spiller, the more I'm convinced he's going to be the real deal in the NFL. I just don't think I want to give any draft picks in this deep of a draft..... however

Now... I might be interested in trading some of our picks for Nnamdi Asomugha and Albert Haynsworth. Aso if the Raiders want to dump his contract; give up our 1st and maybe a mid-late rd pick depending on Oakland's need. And Haynsworth if we can get him for a decent price; I think Kubiak and Shanahan might have each others phone numbers but not quite sure. It would take a lot to get done and is really just for fantasy speculation but I think it'd be the quickest way for us to get to the playoffs.

Haynsworth may (who knows his motivation now) want to be a part of, actually help make, the most dominant DL in the league. Okoye would instantly be successful. Mario would have 20+ sacks. Smith and Barwin would be productive. There's just too many quality pass rushers to block on the front 4 and Fat Al would take advantage of the 1on1 matchups he occasionally gets. Our LB's are freaking stout with Demeco, Cushing and Diles. No need to upgrade Diles b/c any of our WLBs would come out on passing downs. Our secondary see immediate improvement from the front 4's pressure, Pollard is an enforcer and we're getting Wilson back for coverage. Aso is a Top 1-3 CB in the league and would shut down his side of the field, Quin/Reeves man the other side with Wilson over the top. That's a Top 5 Defense easy.

Then you get to the offense. We manage to keep our 2nd round pick (have to give away say a 1st and 4th for Aso and a 3rd and 6th for Fat Al). Pick up our RB in the 2nd like Tate, Dwyer, Gerhart or Hardesty. Pick up OL in the 5th and/or 6th. I like Adam Ulatoski to be a LG and swing tackle. Our TEs and WRs are set and Schaub leads us to the promised land.

Okay, let's pause for station identification while Ole Miss Texan turns off the Madden fantasy GM application

I guess this is the way I look at it.

The FO isn't going to make a major move in FA for a player. We're close to the playoffs, I don't think the coaching staff can afford another 8-8 or 9-7 campaign and miss the playoffs. I'm not usually sold on moving up but I think the timing might be right to take a shot.

If we landed Thomas and Wilson. That'd totally remake our secondary. Spend the third on a back that slips down. Fourth on a guard or center. The team would be ready to face a brutal schedule.

Highly unlikely after paying Smith the contract they did he sits on the bench. Brisiel is likely the odd man out this year.

Anyone who thinks we are drafting a guard in round one is on crack, with the slight caveat that every other highly coveted player is gone and we sure as hell aren't moving up for one. We draft a Guard between 3rd-6th rd.

I would do this deal to move up for Thomas. He's special imo and solidifies the back 4. Unlike someone else, I would definetely keep Wilson here as very soild depth and a guy who can play pretty darn well as a starter if you need him. I don't get why you would release a guy that is starter worthy? In the course of 12 months, we would take the weakest position on the field (S) to perhaps competing with LB as the strongest group on the field. Start Pollard the hitter, and Thomas the rangy free safety with mad coverage skills, and you have a dynamic duo that I can put out there against any other safety duo in the league and be right at the top.

I love Spiller, but I don't think I would move up for him. To me, he is a combo of Reggie Bush, Marshall Faulk, and Brian Westbrook. Imagine what you could do with a healthy Spiller and Slaton. I could see a lot of creative packages and defenses wouldn't know which way is up.

My first choice is Thomas if by some miracle we can get him. Second is Spiller, but unlikely to fall. Third choice is Mathews. Fourth is a corner. Take your pick, McCourty or Wilson. I think I might lean McCourty since he is a more phyiscal type, but either is fine. I want to come out of the 1st with one of these players.

You may not be far off as I am hearing a 3rd and Washington picks up approx 50% of contract. I have just never liked the guy and was pleased to see his productivity drop last year. I guess if I can get use to Barkley and Artest in a Houston uniform, I could get use to this whale. i would not trade for Aso but keep the picks.

If what we have can't run be hind the holes provided by six hundred and fifty pounds of beef on the left side cutting back the backside, well then we weren't gong anywhere anyway. And it's true speed kills. But what's also true is Manning can't beat you if he's standing on the sidelines watching twelve play eight minute drives. And our HC loves those twelve play eight minute drives. American Somoans have to work for a living....just to eat. The holes in Iupati's game are fixable. just go rewatch him run his three cone drill. I'm more impressed with Iupatis 5.2 @ 330 than I am with Spiller's 4.37 at 195. the first thing spiller has to have is hole. You want ten and six or eleven and five and have a shot at the AFC championship game ...better move up and take Thomas or Iupati.
