You keep saying this, do you mean Randle is your #1 WR in the draft, or in the case that Blackmon, Floyd and Wright are taken before 26?

For the Texans and what they do, I like Randle more than any other WR. (Excluding Floyd, my #1 overall WR and Blackmon.)

Randle gives the Texans another big WR with speed and a red zone threat. He also is a better better fit with the Texans in the run game as a blocker. ( Reggie Wayne comparison)

I do like Wright alot though he would be a better fit with a team like the Eagles/Lions/Saints than a team that focuses on the run game like the Texans.

I agree with quoted part, am picking up similar chatter. But still think we need DL, rush LB unless we lose Myers.

Perry/Randle/Konz

I can certainly see other players in those same positions being argued for, but I have a good feeling an Olinemen/Dline/WR will be our first pick.

On most boards Marvin Jones is considered a 2nd or 3rd round pick and looks alot smoother/athletic than Randle, so how can Randle be considered a 1st round pick. I'd even take Tommy Streeter in the 2nd before I'd take Randle. Randle seems like a possession receiver with great hands but not going to get alot of YAC to me. He catches the ball well but he doesn't own/dominate the secondary like he should. In Randle's defense, he's never had a good QB throwing to him. Also I can't remember the last good LSU receiver.

I vote the Texans trade out of the first round unless the WR we want is there.

I am so not into offensive skill players in the first round if its not your franchise QB.

It's all about the big uglies.

I picked Mark Barron, the S. What can I say? Dude would make things real interesting in the secondary. He and Manning, Quin playing some safety, some nickel, maybe even some corner while Jackson and Harris provide decent depth. Improve the coverage=Improve the blitz.

They go for athletic defenders in round 1.

This is why I voted for Kontz.

Rd.1 Kontz
Rd.2 Jones

This draft would make me very happy.

I agree 100%. I voted for Barron too. Manning had maybe his best year last year and will be 30 next year. I like him, but he is a short term player, period. Barron gives us versatility now and a future starter. Would have been a solid, solid selection.

There is a good chance Hill is a top 20 pick because he is being viewed as a quick learner with immense upside so if Texan hearts set on WR Randle could be reality decision?

You just never know with WR's in the first round. It's good that Al Davis is no longer pulling the trigger though. Hill wouldn't last that long at all. I just don't know if 4 WR's will get taken in the top 20 picks. Prob will go Blackmon/Floyd/Wright/Hill in the 1st all together.

Default Re: Houston 1st Round Selection Poll

One thing I think we can all agree on is how deep this WR class is. I wouldn't mind any of these guys in the top 4 rounds:

Blackmon
Floyd
Wright
Hill
Randle
Jeffrey
Sanu
M Jones
D Jones
Criner
Quick
Childs
Broyles
Fuller
Streeter

It's just my personal opinion, so take it for what you paid for it, but I think Wright falls in this draft and since Hill could be gone by the time we pick Konz may wind up being BPA and the Texans pick.

Pretty sure Perry and Mercilus will be gone. Out of the guys left Konz is the best player available and we have nobody to speak of (Caldwell) behind our starters, Smith and Myers are 30, and Konz will probably be better that Brisiel before the season is over. If Wright does not slip to us I would go with Konz.

I'm not 100% sold on Konz though. Pass blocking, he's solid but as the one responsible for opening holes for Foster he's got a lot to work on. Zietler seems like the better OL of the two and he's strictly a power blocking OG.
I'm all for developing some more OL talent though. Couple guys I've honed in on are later round types, Brandon Mosley, Desmond Wynn, Markus Zusevics, Ryan Miller and Joe Looney. David Molk seems like Chris Myers v.2
