How about taking the draft discussion to the draft forum?

Texans need 2 OLB's, NTs, and corners...IMO these are the texans biggest needs defensively.

Our OLB's stink. Wasn't ever a fan of the Mercilus pick up, but I was willing to give him a chance. His book still isn't closed, but I would not be looking to trot him back out as a starter next season.

I'd like to see joe mays brought back. I think he could be a serviceable LB and STer. He misses tackles at times but overall he's a hard nosed player.

McCain needs to go. I'd like to see Harris get one year under crennel. I think our corners and safeties have good talent overall. I think the coaching overall became stagnant here and it made a lot of the guys look worse than what they are. Both sides of the ball.

I liked the Mercilus pick. I have a friend from Illinois that told me it was a great pick. Looks like your right.

Agrred McCain has to go. I would like to fill that position with a vet min FA and draft a guy in the 4th rd range. Anytime Shilo Keo is starting at FS I would have to disagree with you on the talent level in the secondary. Agreed about the coacing getting stagnant.

Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of getting clowney?

You're going to have watt and clowney, the two most talented players on defense, playing two gap DE spots?

That doesn't pass the sense test.

If we trade for mallet or just take a qb later and pick clowney I'd hate to see he and jj watt as two gap DE's.

I think Clowney should be our QB this season.

No offense to you, but if BOB wants Mallett he must have seen something in him that you don't. BOB's job is on the line. I trust his judgement regardless of which QB he selects. Maybe Mallett has matured and improved in these areas.

Maybe McNair is turned off by the way Mallett speaks and told BOB Mallett isn't Texans worthy. I knew McNair was going to find a way to get me to stop using the BoB moniker. LOL (Bill O'Brien)
I think Mallett is basically Bortles a few years down the road except that Bortles can win you a game in the fourth quarter and Mallett can't. I would take Bridgewater or Bortles at #1 before I would trade #33 for Mallett.

Outside of those two I agree. I don't think much of Mallett but I think he would be better than the rest of the QBs in this draft, regardless of what round you could get them in.

With that said, as soon as we fired Kubiak I said I wanted O'Brien to be our next coach. Never thought that would happen but it did. I think he will be an excellent coach and I will stand behind whatever decisions he makes until he proves that his judgment can't be trusted.

I always said this was a possibility....

I think O'Brien would rather have someone that can run his system right now than wait for a rookie QB to learn it....

May cannot get here fast enough....

I'm twitter ignorant. Is that really Gronk asking if he got traded to Oakland because he was flying out to California?

Side note - just realized his nickname is Big Tex.

I baffles me how this thread has turned into a suck off for a guy like Ryan Mallett who hasn't taken any meaningful NFL snaps, plus all of this trust in OB, when trust (at least to me) has to be earned and not just granted, especially after Kubiak.

I'm not knocking you; and I've heard some good points about Mallett, but that this has turned into a Mallett thread when there's dudes with much more upside like Kirk Cousins who can be had for a draft pick (who has seen PLENTY of NFL action, by the way) and Matt McGloin who can also be had for a lower draft pick, after playing pretty well behind a crapola Raiders team. I won't fail to mention that McGloin was also OB's boy at Penn State, where they game planned together as Head Coach and starting QB. I can't help but to think there's a synergy there, over anybody else at the moment.

Anyway, look at this from a very simplistic angle: Give a 2nd for Kirk Cousins who was holed away to get a future draft pick and has played some damn good NFL ball, or give a 2nd for Ryan Mallett, who was also holed away for a draft pick, but has done little more than pass Bill O'Brian in the chow line?

I realize that Mallett is not your guy, specifically - you've said it - but I'm just saying that there are more logical options which to use our draft picks.
