I was in support of the pick.

My response to TexanSam:

I think THIS pick is the real deal. Nobody, not even the casual NFL fan, thought Chris Henry was a good pick.

I watched Chris Johnson play in his bowl game...he was a FORCE. It got to the point where they were faking handoffs, or faking pitches, or faking throws to Chris Johnson...just because he was doing so much damage earlier in the game...and it was opening up the whole offense.

And unlike Reggie Bush, Chris Johnson would lower his shoulder and plow a defender. He is a scrapper. He's a Marshawn Lynch-type player, but with amazing speed.

But hey...we needed RB AND OL. We chose OL. That's how it goes. I expect RB in the third.

------------------

IIRC, we did pick up a RB (Slaton) in the 3rd. This was the rumored reason why we went with Brown in the 1st round. It got us a pick, we slid down and still got Brown.

I'll trust Rick that he believes Gibbs recomendation. the Texans had to address this position, Matt Schaub has to be protected better & I hear he (Duane) has a nasty mean streak
Oh yeah, he does

Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

I remember defending this pick hard. Allot of people said it was a reach, but after researching Brown and understanding why (was Gibbs the great ZBS line coach) they wanted him, I knew it was a good pick. Then when SD said they were going to take him if the Texans didn't...

Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

This thread is now well over 4 years old and I still find the people who hated this pick funny. I don't know if Brown makes the PB in his career but he's a great left tackle and he absolutely murders defenders in the ZBS.

PFF writeup on Brown vs Detroit.

I like how most of these guys evaluate players. I like how they break down the good the bad. Some of them you can tell think way too much of combine numbers, others, not enough.

But none of them have any idea what happens inside a war room. & even though they do a decent job of ranking players & projected players, their understanding of selecting players is academic at best.

Because all of you draft experts already know Phillips, Mendenhall, Cason, and whoever else you wanted already know that Duane Brown isn't going to be as good as them. You are all ready to put Rick Smith, Alex Gibbs, and Kubiak's head on a pike because you hate this pick. You guys are lame.

Welcome to the Texans Duane Brown!
Well done!

That said, I see a trend going on and that is that the CBs are falling. The RB class also looks pretty solid. Now with 2 thirds I could see us taking a 2nd round graded CB, RB or both.

I think a lot of people are looking at this move as disappointing, but I think that he will change your minds.
WOW. You really knew what you were talking about. You were right, he did change a lot of people's minds. He became the franchise LT we were hoping. I like how you off handely just project the next two Texans picks! You said they would go with a CB and RB and were right. You even nailed the order Moulden and then Slaton. While Moulden ended up being a bust, I think Slaton could have been great if used properly. VERY impressive sir! Its too bad you didn't stick around. I would have loved to hear your thoughts on the upcoming draft!

Of course the most amusing posts came from this guy...the same guy who ripped off his so called friends. Yeah...not surprising in the least bit.

Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

In other news: last year, SWTBOUND07 called the first round pick of J.J. Watt the worst first round pick in the history of the NFL and another indication that the Texans would never, ever have a winning season... EVAR... or he would swallow something that I can't actually mention on the board.


note: I have no evidence for this. Just sayin.
