A man can dream. LOL

Teams that can get 2 great players and a starter out of each draft are doing well. This is why I will always trade up to get the chance of selecting two great players at the end of rd.1 or the top of rd.2. Even if that means it wipes out rds 3/4 picks. But solid difference makers can be found for ST's/depth. (See Bentley,Dickerson/Briesel etc....

My philosopy is to add 2 difference makers in the draft and 1 in FA a yr. The FA's dont have to be the highest paid at their position. A guy that would help in FA that wouldn't cost alot but would upgrade the WLB for instance would be Thoams Howard.

If the Texans followed my philosopy they would have a team with 10 young star players and 10 other guys that can really play. Bottom line is. This team is lacking playmakers and it's time that somebody should pay with thier jobs.

I really dont think this team can bank on Ryans coming back 100%. There has to be a backup plan there .... Unless Sharpton is your guy in the middle , they have to pick up a MLB at some point be it by draft or FA.

What's wrong with BPA in the first round outside of QB? Julio Jones would do wonders for this team. Walter is overrated. He had a good year, but has been lackluster since. JJ is a failure at receiver, he makes occasional plays but still a failure. DA isn't going anywhere growth wise. We need another receiver, so taking Julio Jones wouldn't be a bad thing for us.

I think we have young enough corners, we need a veteran corner or two to add to the roster. I'd target BPA in the first round and then look for a safety, defensive line, and offensive line in rounds 2-4.

I'd be ok with BPA outside of three positions - QB , RB , WR.

This team is "Good Enough" at those postions and downright piss poor at so many others that I'd be looking at FS , CB , DT , OG and C first .... They also need to have a contingency plan in place should Ryans not return to form.

I agree with everything you said except we are "good enough" at receiver. Outside of AJ, we really have nothing. God forbid he goes down and we have to rely on Walter, JJ, and DA.

They beat a pretty good Raiders defense this year without AJ and lost him for 7 games in 07 .... They can win with what they have at reciever , they cant win with what they have in the defensive secondary.

Could they use another reciever ? Sure. But they are so much worse at multiple positions .... Maybe Dorin Dickerson , Trindon Holliday or Derrick Townsel makes a marked improvement.

That sounds eerily similar to the line of thinking that got us into this mess....

Kevin Walter should be a very good role player, but we can easily do better with a starting #2 receiver...

You have a point there .... but this offense ranks in the top 10 in just about every category. Its the defense thats the main culprit in this teams losing record.

Oh I agree...

I'm just saying that if there is an offensive talent on the board that is rated a 10 and a defensive player that is a 7.5 or 8, I'd take the offensive player. Doesn't hurt to make a good unit even better.

I look at last years draft....Would you rather have had Kareem Jackson or Dez Bryant?

I know we cannot forecast the rest of their careers from one year, but even at the time Dez was widely considered as the better prospect...

I think Dez would have helped to make us a better team....Definitely this year, and most likely in the future...

I just don't want to pass up an extremely talented offensive player in lieu of forcing a defensive pick...

bigger question in my mind is how they rated Kareem above Devin McCourty? same position/need yet they felt Jackson graded out higher because of Sabin system/coaching/level of competition but seeing them perform @ next level McCourty looks better in every aspect. hips are looser, can adjust to the ball in midair, better long speed & back peddle just to name a few. about the only thing I can think of that might of swayed their opinion was during the interview process. in this department Kareem must have done an excellent job selling himself.

I think a big part of that is coaching at the NFL level.

Of course - prior to the BS Bryant was widely considered the best WR in the draft. His stock only fell because of the off field issues. I'd have taken him long before the Shitpies did ....

And I do agree , if there is an offensive talent rated a 10 and the best defenders on the board are 7.5-8 you take that much better talent ... But if they are much closer together talent wise - which is much more likely mid first round , you fix whats broken.

Yeah , the interview process matters when you need to make a play ...


Kinda like being a chiorboy or a jackass off the field ....

As was pointed out, this is 100% NFL coaching. Everything about Jackson coming out indicated he was a better prospect with less chance to bust. Step back and consider the coaching differences between NE and HOU.
