EDIT: Ah, right, an RT. On the other hand, State of the Texans made a point about whether Newton should actually move inside and play LG next to Duane while Quessenberry took over RT.

In the 2nd rd if its between hageman and nix,I'm taking hageman. Nix has knee troubles already. Hageman is a guy who can play nose or 5 tech. He gives the texans great versitility. If they want to go 4 man front,Merci goes 3pt,jj and hageman as tackles and crick as other de. Big,athletic front against certain teams

There is no way I'd take hageman over nix. That would be a terrible mistake. Hageman is overrated just like merciless was. Not very good football players coming out of college, though they were overhyped for different reasons.

Nix injury worries me, but I'm not passing up stud players for guys like hageman.

2/26

1. Houston Texans

The Pick: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida

This is not the pick I would make as general manager of the Houston Texans. However, this is the pick I believe they would make if the draft were happening today.

The decision will be a long and difficult one for Houston. There are four quarterbacks to consider—Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel, Derek Carr and Bortles—as well as freaks like Jadeveon Clowney and Greg Robinson. But until you have a quarterback you believe in, you have to keep trying to get one.

Bortles is raw, but if he develops as expected, he'll be a high-level starter. He's big, impossible to bring down in the backfield and has the athleticism to improvise, both in and out of the pocket. He doesn't have Colin Kaepernick's arm, but his strength is good enough to push the ball up field while he's on the run or from the pocket.

I think we all know what happens when you can't protect one (QB). Right side with Robinson & Newton would be the foundation you could protect your franchise as well flourish as he develops. Smartest thing is to sign a FA who fits, draft one later you like, then revisit process next draft as applicable. This whole forcing need over value is a proven path to failure. Here you have a guy (Robinson) who is on par with all time greats like Ogden & Pace (closer to Orlando in style/build) but tested out stronger & faster. Rapid development as a LT in just his Sophomore season, immediate impact RT (huge need for Texans & any QB they bring in) who is a day one starter, probably goes to Pro Bowl (if he stays healthy) as a rookie then later assimilates Brown as franchise LT (move him to LG).
