I'm ok with the pick. You can always use help in the trenches. I think they are targeting Savage at qb somewhere in this draft.

Anyone knows if this kid could play RT? He played LT (not very good apparently), is said to be strong and quick with great hands and feet. Sounds like he could be a RT...

He can probably play G or RT. He stated that he is not sure where he will play for us just now.

Looks like his nickname is X

I would have preferred a trade down, but I love this pick. I'm glad to see the Texans putting an emphasis on adding some beef to this team and the importance of the O-line. This is the way this team should have been built from the beginning.

27th best player on ESPN draftscout and 2nd best OG leave him at LG and allow Quess to play RT.

I really like this pick. XSF is a heck of a player, and should be a long-term solution at guard. I guess he could play RT, but I think he has Pro Bowl potential at OG.

Just upgraded two positions with one pick.

This has BOB written all over it. We can begin to see what kind of team O'Brien wants to put together and I'm all over it like white on rice.

If Kubes is still coach, that pick never happens imo.

Really I don`t know if they should draft one. What is the point of drafting one, when you are not convinced he could be your franchise QB. Perhaps there is a QB like that left (Savage, Mettenberger, McCarron, Murray...), most likely there is not. Just try to either get one via trad (like Mallet) or go again next season. Too many good players at other positions left. So far we have 2 surefire starters, let`s get at least 2 more.

Good pick. If they hadn't taken an interior offensive lineman or a quarterback, it would have been a disaster. Grade B+.

We are not going to draft a QB. You heard it here first!

OB has big plans for Keenum. Just get him some decent protection that he didn't have last season. On paper, we have a pretty decent line now that Filo is on board. Also, this time OB will call plays that will work with Keenums strength unlike Kubiak.

We need a strong running game. If Arian Foster doesn't stay healthy I'm still concerned with our depth. And of course, what kind of quarterback play will we have? Hopefully we target a quarterback and running back in the third and fourth round (two picks). I also wanted a big nose tackle. Maybe those will be our next three picks.

Xavier Su'a-Filo, OL, UCLA
Hot 100 rank: 27
Su'a-Filo (6-foot-4 1/8, 307 pounds) played some left tackle in 2013, but his best NFL position will be guard. He did not play football in 2010-11 because he was serving on a Mormon mission, but he started all 14 games as a true freshman. He ran the 40 in 4.90 seconds (hand-held) and had 25 strength lifts at the combine.

it may not be pretty because of the love of the cheeseburger...but 307lbs moving sub 5.0 is getting hit with a big physics lesson first hand.

OK, so if he's really good, this guy gets to marry like 50 women and have 300 kids. Motivation...
