4/15 updates:

Dane Brugler:
Menelik Watson, OT/Florida State
Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State: The Texans cut Eric Winston last offseason and while Derek Newton filled his shoes in 2012, Houston is on the lookout for a long-term answer at right tackle. Watson is very raw and inexperienced, but the athletic tools will land him in the first round.

Rob Rang:
Robert Woods, WR/Southern California
Andre Johnson re-emerged in 2012 as one of the NFL's elite wideouts but depth remains quite thin, especially with the torn Achilles suffered by Devier Posey in the playoff loss to New England. Woods was overshadowed in 2012 by the emergence of sophomore sensation Marqise Lee but was the more reliable route-runner and pass-catcher of the two. Physically tough and experienced playing inside and out, he'd be a perfect complement to Johnson.

Pat Kirwin:
DeAndre Hopkins, WR/Clemson
Hopkins caught 18 touchdown passes last year and never drops the ball. The Texans need someone opposite Andre Johnson -- and really need someone who gets into the end zone.

Of the 3, Brugler has the better pulse of what the chatter is imo.

I've never gotten upset after a draft. I usually give the Texans FO the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the draft. Allowing the player(s) time to prove themselves and whatnot

That said, I'd be mildly irked if we took Menelik Watson in the 1st.

I like the player, but I haven't really studied him.
At first thought, I agree with you about not taking an OT early since we've got a bunch of them already; however, I back off that stance.

If we're convinced that a guy is a franchise player at certain position, I'd say go for it.

Exactly.... The national media guys are more interested in hype and ratings than actually knowing anything about a team or making an accurate pick. They're just speculating.

It's not just the national guys saying this though. It's the local hucksters Lance Z and John McLame err McClain. Of course it doesnt make it any more accurate but it does make you wonder where these guys are getting their info.

I'd be OK with Woods, Hopkins, or Ogletree in the first.

I'm not sure where you guys are coming off with this critical observation about a scenario where the Texans would use their top pick on Menelik Watson, the FSU OT ? We of course have our francise LT in Duane Brown, and while RT is not as important as the all-important LT position it's still a very important position.
And we have a lot of uncertainty with the position as it stands now with the inconsistant play of Newton in his rookie year last year (effectively) plus the added concern of Newton having offseason knee surgery. In other words, it's not out of the question that the Texans make this move in this first round of next weeks Draft.

He's very raw but you can see the potential. Super athletic for a guy his size. I could see him being a very good RT with good coaching.
