Default Re: Who Do the Texans Take In The Second Round?

Hopkins fits Texan prototype for WR position, hence who is prototype for a true pass rushing OLB? Barwin clone with similar size & athletic ability. really like Okafor 6045 261 8T, 18TFL, 12.5 sacks. Think he can stand up in a 3-4 & is fluid in space while has ability to run contain & stack & shed.

Man, I would love to sit here with these four slots that the Pats got in the trade: 52, 83, 102, and 229.

32+58= 90

You get 3 guys out of that list instead of Hopkins plus one, and still has the #102 spot and the #229 to use to trade up a few spots if you're inclined to do so.

I love Hunt, and I really want to have him on this team. The more I think about it, the more I don't see us taking him. We have other needs we need to fill, and I think he goes in the 2nd. If he falls to us in the third, maybe. But we still need ILB, OLB, and OT.

Default Re: Who Do the Texans Take In The Second Round?

I would really like a great pass rushing OLB. Move Reed to ILB, since he's not a great pass rusher to begin with. Our defense would be so much better if we could get more pressure from the OLB positions.

Okafor has elite edge rush talent & was more productive than Dion Jordan who Miami traded up for #3 overall IMO.

I agree with Rey .... Dont want Minter. Better fit and value later at the position.

Give me a DL , OLB or RT here. Someone to get after the QB .... or protect the QB. Or double down at WR with Da'Rick Rogers .... He's an absolute beast between the lines .... even if he is lacking between the ears.

I would love Okafor, but I think he goes in the top half of the 2nd.

I have to admit that the thought of getting someone like Da'Rick or Woods in the 2nd has occurred to me.

I think OLB and DL are the bigger need... but...

Texans need another pass rusher. They have to know that.

Reed and Merciless are not going to get 'er done.

Default Re: Who Do the Texans Take In The Second Round?

Should there be a run at WR, QB and RB, we are likely to draft LB or DT in the 2nd. Outside chance would be S but good S prospect/s should be gone before our pick. Your thoughts?

Well, they say this is a passing league now. It would make our offense tough to stop and set us up for the future.

I was just thinking this same thing last night. That or RT.

We still need an ILB, maybe two.
