yes good players. I like both along with Urbin. I think Coleman could play DE or NT.

No, Ozzie runs the show and I don't think there is a GM in the league who stays more true to his board than Ozzie.

I've got to give it to Smith/BOB, they've resisted taking a QB and filled the holes on the OL/DL/Pass Rusher. Plus added another tough guy at TE. The 1st true blocking TE since Bruener. Fiedo reminds me of Bruener/Heath Miller. Not bad for the 3rd rd.

This draft has added what the Texans have been missing for yrs, (Toughness) I like BOB's vision of what HIS team should be. (Strong in the trenches)

Question Re: 2014 NFL Draft Thread

This has probably been mentioned but I'll pose the question again. Does anyone think the Texans drafting Clowney had anything to do with the logic behind the Titans picking Taylor Lewan?

The way I see it Roos is close to retirement and OT is a concern and so why not get the guy who put up a battle against Clowney if he's drafted in your division?

Any thoughts?

I think if one of McCarron/Murray/Met/Savage is there at 4-35 (Likey) that will be the pick. However if they add an ILB like Zumwalt or a nickel CB like Desir/ DE like Hart/McCullers I wouldn't have a problem with that.

They may go with what they have at QB in 2014 and trade up to get their QB in 2015. Which was what I have always been advocating.

I've been hoping for Murray, but TBH, I wouldn't be surprised at this point if they don't take a QB at all. I think fans have made up their minds on some things that coaches may disagree with. We shall see.

Honestly, I think they wanted Barr or Gilbert and when both were gone they just went with the top guy on their board. The pick was somewhat baffling because he will probably be a swing tackle this year. But he will more than likely be their LT in 2015. A line of Lewan, Levitre, Schwenke, Warmack, Oher is pretty strong.

because what they had to choose from with QBs. Rbs can be had later especially back ups.

According to Webster/Whisenhunt Lewan was best player on their board and when you a chance at a franchise LT you don't pass him up and said Lewan was to good to pass up.

I think the Texans went with Clowney because he was the safest pick in their mind.

I think they chose Clowney because they went from tied 4th in sacks 2012 to 29th IIRC. No deep theology just "see QB- disrupt QB!"

That guy can play. He's well worth 4-35. Hopefully Savage will be there and there will be a difficult decision to be made.

Or because he was the highest rated player in the draft .
