Default If Bush is gone, who do you pick with your top 2-5 pick?

If we assume for a moment that we're going to win the San Francisco game & miss out on the #1 overall pick, what would you do with your #1 pick (2-5)?

If I've got the #2 pick, I'll try to trade down & pick up more picks. Otherwise, I'm taking D'Brick.

that means AJ Hawk. Especially when it is a strong Draft for O tackles and
might realisticaaly expect good talent still available in the second round.

I chose D'Brick, but I would trade down from #2--just not from 3,4, or 5.

We need good linemen on the offensive line. If Bush is not an option I say strenhthen the o-line.

If it's the #2, trade down. If we pick lower, take D'Brick.

Also, isn't Hawk an OLB (or at least projected as one)?

Even if we have a shot at Bush with the #1 I say we trade down and get more picks and pick the best OL available (my current opinion is Winston, but we'll see after the combine and workouts). If we end up with a pick in the 4-5 range we might not be able to trade down so take our stud OLineman there if we can't trade down a couple spots, but definitely if we're in the 1-3 range I say we trade down. If we were to decide to go with a defensive pick, I'd either take the best CB available or the best DE if we are going to switch to a 4-3, but I would not take a LB in the 1st round.

I'm not saying I don't think they will go in the 1st round, I'm saying if I were the Texans management I would not take one in the 1st round.

You know, as much as I want us to use our #1 pick on a LT, I'm starting to change my opinion a little. D'Brick is the only OL that I'd take with a top 5 pick. If he's gone before we pick, I'd have to take (in this order) Mario Williams (would hate to pass on the next Julius Peppers), A.J.Hawk, or Jimmy Williams. If this happens, then I'd take the best available OT (Colledge?) with my 2nd round pick.

If the Texans have a 2-5 pick there is no sense in getting cute & muffing the selection like they did last year so lets get us a franchise tackle named D'Brick

if we dont have the number one overall, i would probally be incline to take the top rated LT or mario williams if we have a top 5 pick. If we were to trade down to around 14 I would take a LB: Brooks or Poluz or maybe even kiwi if he is there.

this draft is stocked no matter how you look at it.

I say we draft matt leinart and hold him for ramsom until the jets or saints give us there 1st and 3rd and 1st next year and hell if that doesnt work out we win anyway we would finally have a QB that might actually make it in this league. but i would much rather have the extra picks if we cant have a hairy Bush.

I would have to agree with Napa...to a certain extent. Grab a big name and hang on to him until we get good picks for them.

assuming that we lose and get the 4th pick, i'd still probably trade down (maybe it's just hype, but comparitively this seems to be a MEAN draft). if we got the top pick, i'd personally trade down twice. what i would be looking for as a GM would be upgrading overall team talent as quickly as possible and letting the next HC get who he thinks could get this team started. even if of the 5(?) choices, 1 ends up a starter and 4 end up as backups, we've upgraded over the current situation (of backups who wouldnt make any other team's practice squad). if we go OL in the first with the trade-down, and tight end by the 3rd, we've got two starters. with any luck, between the gambling in 2nd day & the additional first day picks we'll find legitimate backups/depth at linebacker & secondary (if not starters), along with potential across the board at bpa. the overall upgrade of team talent is my main interest.

with regards to "you know who" ... I WOULD NOT DRAFT BARRY SANDERS if i had even the slightest idea that we could upgrade the rest of the team by giving him up. "you know who" will NOT be as good as barry, so take it for what it's worth.
