Default TJ had better pan out!

Just have been watching the Saints play the Patriots, and Jammal Brown looks awesome starting at right tackle. Also, the lineman from Fresno St. that the Patriots picked up looked pretty darn good also.

Jammal Brown doesn't have the feet to play LT and Mankins wouldn't get the start over Pitts or Weigert this year. Give Casserly and Capers a little credit, they did pick Carr, AJ, D-Rob and Babins in the first.

If I am not mistaken, TJ played fairly well himself in his first preseason game.

If he was on our team we'd blast him the first time he got beat in a drill. I'm afraid familiarity breeds contempt with many on this board.

The posts on here get funnier and funnier every day. Why the hell would we draft a RT in the 1st round?

Cass has been right on with every pick he's made in the first round. He took Carr over Harrington. AJ fell to us, Drob fell to us and we picked them both up. Babin played well as a rookie. Tj will be the man, just wait and see.

Oh, I guess that we couldn't move him to LT?!?!
We haven;t been shifting guys around this offseason at all.

Jammal Brown didn't even play the LT position in college. What makes you think he can in the NFL?

He played "OK" for the first pre-season game. I saw him take some plays off though. He would have a few great rushes then he'd seem to be waltzing with the guy. He'd have a good punch coming off the line, then we he saw the play was away from him he'd just stop and do this half-a** jog like he was actually pursuing the play. Then on one particular play I saw him fire off the ball and the qb rolled away from him and he just stop and watched him throw. I would expect that from Warren Sapp, someone who is proven in this league but also known to be lazy. Not a rookie trying to justify why we selected him with our first pick. Plus his legs should have been fresh since he was rotating in. But he did cause some damage. Over all I liked what I saw, potential wise, but he needs to do a few extra sprints after practice.

hold on guys, everyone is making valid points but comparing apples to oranges. Travis Johnson has been nothing short of amazing so far, the best DT in the draft plus picked up what should be another HIGH 3rd rd draft pick Casserlys 1st round track record as the Texans GM has been A+

the key to Johnson will be how he develops his awesome strength/talent & how he focuses & dedicates himself professionally. he can be an All-Pro some day.

wrestler4life, I appreciate your opinion of Brown & Mankins your observations on their play is accurate, they both will be solid tackles in the NFL. upgrades over what we already have? possibly, but not as much as injecting some youth and talent on the D-Line. next year will be more fruitfull for the Texans as far as offensive lineman in the draft.

many of us wanted David Baas for example who went the next pick in the draft after Mankins to the 49ers to play center/guard. the Texans could then have the option of interchanging all thier Guards & rotating Centers as injury's and on the field performance dictated. this must & will be addressed next year, as well adding a young franchise LT

What made the Texans think Riley could play LT? They took a chance.

Brown's a very good athlete for a 300+ lb man. The word is that Brown will move to LT for the Saints in '06 after Wayne Gandy is released for cap purposes.

The Texans needed a a young defensive lineman in this draft. Travis is the only defensive linemen on the roster selected by the Texans in the college draft. And if Gary Walker or Seth Payne go down with injuries (again), you'll be glad the Texans picked up Mr. T in the draft. I would have liked to see Jammal in a Texans uni. DJ & Heath Miller would have looked good, too. The Texans had just one 1st round pick. Travis was a good choice.

You can't tell much from one game . Drafts are judged after about three years not three months .

The problem is we had some glaring weaknesses going into the draft . Derrick Johnson would not have addressed any .
