Out of that group - someone will be there when the Texans are up with #4 of the 4th.
I'd almost be content to go with two of the three - OL , DE , CB in the second and third thinking that one of those big WR's is going to fall.
Sure , I prefer some over others but if you can get value at those other spots , you almost have to do it.


These are the wr's I like in order of preference:

Ruben Randle
Stephen Hill
Brian Quick
Greg Childs
Alshon Jeffery
Mohamed Sanu
Tommy Streeter
Marvin McNutt
T Y Hilton

At some point in this draft the Texans will have to address the DT position. Depth is a big problem there. I like Mike Martin and Derek Wolfe but there are alot of DT's in this draft that could come in and provide much needed help. Ta'Amu, Crick, Worthy,Still, Thompson

Wade said after the draft (last night) that we are still one roster sport short on DT so I'd think that they will address that for sure.

I think the team will take a wr in the 3rd and/or 4th rounds since much of the talent is similar (as far as a finished product goes).

I'd personally like to see us try to trade up for Stephen Hill or Randle since we have an extra 4th to play with. I'd be thrilled with our draft already.

I like Hill, and am "iffy" on Randle (but hey, what do i know?), but for whatever position they want i think they can move up...

We can make fun of Jacoby all we want (and we probably should), but there is a team out there that probably wouldn't mind having him as a no.4 wr, maybe punt returner as well... Give 'em that extra 4th rd pick along with JJ and who knows, maybe they'll take...

or was Al Davis our only hope?....damn!

No doubt you're right...but GMs and coaches don't always make the right calls...we have to hope for one of those GMs/coaches... There are a couple out there we could ask for a dance...

Garrett Wolfe would be perfect.

Q: What influence have your parents had on you?
A: “My parents are Haitian immigrants. I can’t give you a dateline of when they came here or anything like that, but they worked for everything. They broke their backs throughout the years just to put food on the table for me, my brother and my sister. They just instilled those values in us and just to work hard, never give up at anything in life and just keep pushing forward and go for great things. It definitely happened.”
Q: What factors weighed in your decision to enter the draft early?
A: “This has been a passion all my life to definitely play at the next level. But also it was a way to help my family financially, because I didn’t come from a background where I had money just laying out there that I could use. It was a way just to help them out and provide them with a life that they deserve because they’ve worked so hard for all their life. Now it’s my turn to take care of them.”

He has similar measurables (actually a bit better) than Pierre-Paul, who also was kind of a 1yr wonder. I'd be ecstatic if he turns out to be that kind of player

someone like Brandon Thompson...he can play all across the line from NT to 5 technique but I'd draft him as a NT and a run stopper inside for short yardage and goal line.

Billy Winn seems to be a Wade kind of guy though....high motor, good slashing skills, but with enough size to be stout vs the run.

I think we are better in passing downs than we are in short yardage....so I'd like to see more of a space eater in the middle of the field.

not disagreeing, but don't you have to make sure we have his replacement? As I posted somwhere in this madhouse, let's say Schaub is healthy, would he not get all if not most of the snaps? How sure can you be Yates is the future from basically watching him inpractice?

I don't know a ton about him but I expected OLB to be filled with the 1st pick b/c I finally realized that they apparently don't take replacing Jacoby that seriously just yet and I trust Wade. Also, the last name is nice!

wade said we were 1 short on the d-line not DT. we've cody and earl (who i cant remember playing any DE last yr) at NT/DT so i understood it to mean as they're looking for another DE along with JJ, antonio and tim jamison.

if we come away with randle/hill/jeffrey etc, and and OT/OG/DE at the end of today il be happy

Woke up with a headache and severe congestion from last night's draft.

Still incredibly happy with this pick.

not to nit pick, but in a 3-4 you basically play three DT's. Last night Wade said he was still short one D lineman and that they are looking to address the position.
