I don't really trust Sapp to have done the tape work to make a judgement on that.

FWIW I am starting to feel Marvin Austin out of North Carolina.

He was on OTL and he looked like a great athlete at a good size.

Maybe, just maybe he is there in the 2nd.

whether to agree or not I do think its important to carry some player(s) former or current draft perspective on a position they should have integral insight. DeMarcus wasn't filled out like Aldon either, I think he weighed closer to 250lbs. now they are identical (6040 H 263 W). Then there is the Wade/Ware connection, this early 2005 scout report on him also looked similar, expect for the small school thing a blanket could cover either prospect -
Quote:
An excellent athlete. Team captain. An edge rushing playmaker. 27 1/2 career sacks. His burst off the snap is explosive. Agile. Very Quick. Nose for the ball. Speed to get around the corner with a strong closing burst. Can over-run the play upfield. Hard hitting tackler. Misses some open field tackles. Good leaper. Quick. Strong hands. Long arms. Works hard. Projects to 3-4 rush linebacker. No surprise that he´ll need a lot of work on cover skills. Will be making a transition from DE. Should be a standout OLB. Just don´t expect overnight success. Ware is coming from a small college program. He impressed at the Senior Bowl, and certainly did well at private workouts.
In summary, I think Aldon Smith will be Wade Phillips choice, unless Rick Smith can work some kind of trade up or trade down when Texans go on the clock. Stay Tuned.

Default Re: I would not be displeased if these persons were drafted by the Texans.....

A select few of some guys I like for us in our 3-4 defense (no particular order). Notice 3 Arizona defensive players... bolded are my very very short list of favorites.

FB - Stan Havili, USC
WR - Julio Jones, Bama

DL - Jarvis Jenkins, Clemson
NT - Chris Neild, West Virginia
NT - Lolomana Mikaele, Arizona
DE - Cameron Jordan, Cal
DE - J.J. Watt, Wisconsin
DE - Karl Klug, Iowa

OLB - Brooks Reed, Arizona
OLB - Ricky Elmore, Arizona
OLB - Sam Acho, Texas
OLB - Aldon Smith, Missouri
OLB - Justin Houston, Georgia
ILB - Chris Carter, Fresno St.
ILB - Jeremy Beal, Oklahoma

CB - Davon House, New Mexico
CB/FS - Aaron Williams, Texas
CB - Curtis Marsh, Utah St.
CB - Jalil Brown, Colorado
S - Tyler Sash, Iowa
S - Shiloh Keo - Idaho

My ideal draft would be trading down slightly to say #14/15 and picking up a 3rd round pick. 1st rd - get DE Cameron Jordan. Trade our 2nd + newly acquired 3rd to NE for #28 and get OLB Brooks Reed. Then trade our 3rd and 4th to a team like NE (again) towards the end of the 2nd rd to select ILB Chris Carter and also receive a 5th rounder in return. In the 5th round on - I target: OLB Elmore; NT's Mikaele/Neild; DE Klug; S Keo; FB Havili.

I think Jordan, Reed and Carter would be amazing on this team. Essentially we trade our 4th rd pick for a 5th rounder and get these three. Of course, Jordan could be gone by 11 (much less 15), Reed could be gone by 28... we could take Carter with our 2nd or he may last to our 3rd!

I'll have to give a rain check on that. I'm in Nigeria right now.

well then for you I'll give you a special recap http://blogs.chron.com/nfl/2011/04/j...t_chat_at.html (I have a friend who works on a big rig over there & very generous to me when he's home on leave).

basically McClain is sticking with Aldon Smith, OLB. If Peterson is on the board #5 Texans & other teams will attempt to trade up. Not as sure about Von Miller I guess because most think he'll be gone in the first three picks. Trading down also an option but not too far & if the Texans can't get Peterson or pass on Prince they probably look CB in round two. Lots of other interesting stuff too, I found him in rare form, I think he's as pumped for the draft as the fans.

Call me crazy, but I would give up a decent bit to get Miller, even if it's with Buffalo. That's a tuff choice between Peterson and Miller, though.

Really? There was a thread just the other day running down the work ethic of Nigerians in the NFL.

Who coincidental.

Your crazy.

I think Miller is going to bust. Isn't draft time fun.
