Default What I would do with the power this offseason

What's up guys? This is my first post in a while on this board so I figured I'd prove my continued support of the Texans with an absurdly extensive potential offseason scenario for you to consider. I hope you enjoy, and by no means do I expect you to read every word of this.

Alright, so here's what I did: I got bored of pretending to do the mountain of homework I have and decided to put into words what I would do if I had Rick Smith's job this spring. I then performed a completely biased analysis of the Texans' offseason needs (SPOILER: I haven't given up on Schaub) and factored in the talent of the free agent market with the players I think can contribute immediately in Kubes'/Wade's systems and may be available when Houston picks through the first three rounds of April's draft.

For pre-draft offseason moves, I'd release Antonio to free up cap space to help retain Quin (top priority) and Barwin (1a). I'd do this with the hopes that committing a late round draft pick to a DE to compete with Jamison and Crick and adding a physically dominating replacement for Cody early in the draft will make up for his absence inside. If more money needs to be freed up, Wade Smith is the next on my chopping block but the prospect of replacing more continuity with youth on that line is a daunting prospect after losing Briesel/Winston last year.

This draft is pretty thin for quality 3-4 inside backers after the first 20 picks and we need to do something to upgrade that position's depth so that's where I'd commit any free agent dollars I had after my re-signings (Larry Grant is someone I'd definitely look into). Given all of this movement (or lack there of), here are some of the players I would target in the first three rounds of the coming draft.
