I *optimistically* chose Trade Down, because that's what I want to have happen. However, I have a feeling that we will draft Bush.

Gonna be an interesting draft day, because I don't know what's gonna happen.

With the first pick we have the power in this draft. With RB and QB not being a need for us, I hope we trade down and load up on picks...If we stay at #1 and draft Bush I will probably literally have a heart attack.

Totally agree. We have way to many needs. We just lost to the Freaking 49ers for heavens sake!

Trade out of first and pass on Bush ONLY if:

1) Stay in the top 10
2) Get another third round pick
3) An extra first round pick next year
4) Pick up at least one SOLID OL F.A.

The question asked is "What WILL we do(gonna)" and I think that will be to take Bush. If it were what "SHOULD we do" then I think it is a trade down, UNLESS we can address the O-line pretty well in FA. If we do well in FA, then take Bush, then the best tackle with the 2nd then a TE and then a OG. After that go Defense.

Here is the problem.


Dom Davis: 5'9 216
V. Morency: 5'9 215
T Hollings: 5'10 216
Bush is 6'0 200 but likely can bulk up to about 215 or so

Notice a pattern here? We have Dom, Hollings, and Morency already who are essentially Reggie's size. Are we going to trade Dom? Are we giving up on Morency this early? If we take Bush we will have 4 backs around the same size. We might get rid of Hollings, but then we have 3 backs around the same size. Is this a good idea?

Yes. Versatility. Options. Depth.

According to the chronicle, team sources have indicated that they will pick Bush. I hope we can keep DD and use him as a Lendale White type player. Pick up O-line in later rounds.

Options? Again. Same idea. Depth? ok i will concede this one, but i disagree with you on the other two.

size doesnt mean nearly as much as running style.

Davis and Bush are totally different runners. Morency is sort of a hybrid of both.

Talking

They all might be the same size but the biggest difference in the playmaker ability of one back. And that is Reggie Bush. Morency runs a 4.65 in the 40 and Davis runs 4.62 both times from the combines. Reggie Bush only runs 4.28 in the 40. The Texans can fix their needs through free agency and some in the draft. But tell me this. How good were the lineman Barry Sanders had in Detroit? Not good at all. Barry did almost everything with his ability. Just like Barry All Reggie Bush needs is everyone get a helmet on their man and he will take it to the house. The only way I can see tradeing down is if we get a better trade than Dallas got for Hershel Walker. Point Blank. But why should Texans fan for years to come say "Why did we trade away Reggie Bush." If you do want a lineman in the first round why not package up a deal with the first pick of the second round and the third rounder from Oakland for a late first rounder and take a tackle. But I do have to say the line did a better job the final 6 games of the year.

Bush in 06

A couple things:
1) I doubt Bush will get to 215, at least without losing a little mobility.
2) I don't see Tony Hollings being here next year, especially if Bush gets drafted, but even without Bush I'd say it's about a 90% chance he's gone.
3) Wells should stay even if we do get Bush, he is the only big RB we'd have even though he tries to run like an agile back rather than a power back, and he's a decent blocker and good on special teams.
4) We will not trade Domanick Davis, there is no reason to trade him, especially with the cap hit we'd take, and I don't see us giving up on Morency either. Out of Davis, Wells, Morency, and Bush, I'd say Bush is the least likely to be a Texan next year.
