We have some picks to trade if needed. I think a top tier WR will slip to the 2nd.
As it currently stands; your good with Texans going into next season with Darryl Sharpton starting ILB?

Good point. Actually I am not. In a mock I did I selected Keenan Robinson in the 2nd round to play ILB. I also think they can find one in rounds 3 or 4.

I think the first round is where you find elite talent. And thats what we need in our pass rushers.

That forces me to get a WR in round 2 where I think talented skill position players can slip.

Round 3 you can go ILB or OL.

Some names I'd be ok with us drafting by round:

1st: Nick Perry OLB USC
Kendal Wright WR Baylor
Jonathon Martin T Stanford

2nd: Kevin Zeitler G Wisconsin
Alshon Jeffery WR South Carolina
Vinny Curry OLB Marshall

3rd: Nick Toon WR Wisconsin
Kenaan Robinson ILB Texas
Lamichael James RB Oregon

4th:Best available G/T that hasnt been addressed

5th: Best available NT

6th: Kicker from A&M shoe in lock pick here

7th: Someone to take Jacobys place as punt returner.

Thoughts?

Yea, I have no problem with it. He played well last year before he got hurt and was pretty good for a rookie in '10. We will need to add an ILB at some point for depth, maybe 3-5. If Hightower is there in the 1st I think you take him because BPA, but other than that I wait until the mid-rounds.

very logical response, one I fully endorse

does anyone here know Sharpton's official medical prognosis going forward? must be positive otherwise how do they trade DeMeco without a back-up plan?

if nothing else this off-season has proved you can't pay everyone all-pro money so Texan FO must make some compromises to put the most competitive team on the field.

not me, but you can get the Ben Liebers of the world in the 3rd and 4th round. Run stuffing MLB's are not hard to find. Sharpton doesn't have enough lead in the pants to take on big O linemen in goal line and short yardage situations in an ongoing manner. If you are going to take all the linebackers except for Cushing off the field 45% of the time you will need a ILB that can take on Guards and stuff the run as a specialty.
