I think the texans will pick up Jeremiah Trotter when his released from the redskins. Here is my lineup.

Peek-Trotter?-Sharper-Babin
Sharper-Wong

All of this leads me to believe that everything else being equal, they would prefer Babin on the left (if bigger equals stronger against the run) and Peek on the right...
Good explanation and the scenario of Babin on the left is the one I'd like to see develope.

What mildly disturbs me is the write-up on Babin says he does not take on blockers, at the point of attack, very well. He prefers to "elude" blockers. He has fine weight room strength, but he does not utilize it on the football field. Unless the coaches can correct this, he may be better suited on the right.

If the write-up is true (which I doubt) and the coaches can't correct it, he won't play on either side!

Negatives: Timed speed is deceptive, as the player shed 20 pounds before his workout and generally plays in the 280-pound range Not as explosive when he's at his playing weight Shows strength against the run, but does not split the double team or neutralize blockers when engaging in head-up action Weight-room strength does not translate to the football field (would rather elude than take on the blocker) Uses his hands well, but is not a hit-and-shed type Best pass rushing off the edge, as he would rather not take on and defeat the offensive tackle or tight end (tries to throw rather than use shed moves to disengage)...NFL.com

Number19, I didn't mean to imply that your write-up wasn't accurate. Rather, I was trying to say that I doubted the write-up you were referring to was an accurate reflection of the player.

I can't imagine that the Texans would trade up to get Babin in the first round if the negatives were accurate, although time will tell. Capers has a pretty good track record with young linebackers. I believe his first college coaching assignment was working with Jack Lambert.

No problemo. I knew your intent; I simply thought it would be good to print the entire analysis and source. I also agree with your analysis, this is why I'm only mildly concerned. I'm sure CC and company are well aware of any shortcomings. For one, we do not know how they intend to use Babin in their defensive scheme- left or right - and they obviously feel he is coachable. What it does mean is that we shouldn't expect pro bowel caliber of play his rookie year. He will require a year or two for seasoning and developement. And it does mean there is that small possibility he may not quite pan out as expected. But regardless, Peek and Babin should represent an upgrade over '02 & '03.
