2-33...Sam OLB, Kyle Van Noy
3-65...ILB, Yawin Smallwood
4-97...RT, Ja'Wuan James
5-129...DE, Josh Mauro or Tayler Hart ( combine will decide)
5-comp...NT, Ryan Carrethers
5-comp...CB, Kendall James...4.38 speed
6-161...FS/CB, Marqueston Huff...4.40 speed
7-193...KR, DeAnthony Thomas...4.34 speed
7-comp...RB, Tyler Gaffney

So where does that leave us as regards QB. Without a trade, we go with what we got; plus a veteran FA. We'll see what kind of QB guru OB is.
Hell no. I'd rarther he not be saddled with damaged goods only. Kubiak had to start that way with Carr and it set the Texans back years.

Doesn't matter as I don't see Ford's size fitting Crennel's desires. I just think the guy is a football player.

Jake Matthews.
So whoever we get at QB has a chance to finish the season in one piece.

We don't need a LT, we've got one, that we gave up Joe Flacco to get therefore Robinson and Matthews are out of play.

We don't need a WR, We just spent a 1st last year on one. I get potential Watkins talk if our whole football team was stacked and we wanted to think about the future, but this is obviously not the case for the Houston Texans drafting 1.01. Plus, I don't like WRs unless they are 6'2+ if their QB is not named Brady, Rodgers, Brees or Manning.

I like Mack, but HECK no will I spend a 1.01 on him.
Would you spend a 1.1 on Von Miller? I see him having that type of career trajectory.

Talent wise that's a stretch IMO.

And the Von Miller we've seen NOT on the field? No, I wouldn't.

Couldn't disagree more. TFL leader for a reason, insanely good hands, very rarely squared up on. Guy will be a stud.

Just looking at him, he's mean, tough & not afraid to get a little dirty. He's a real blue collar worker with outstanding speed, a non-stop motor & he's immovable. As a run blocker, he can plow a hole wide enough to drive a truck through & can carry the RB if he has to. This guy is a real game changer & since Clowney is dead, The Truck is the only bonafide can't miss prospect.

My pick would be Bridgewater.
My non-QB pick would be... eh. Split between Sammy Watkins (BPA) or Jake Matthews at tackle.

Id take Kyle Van Noy #1 overall.

He's the best player I've seen in this draft.
