Default Mlb

Indications are we'll shift to a 4-3. I'm not sure we have anyone that can be the MLB we need to execute that defense effectively. I know many have discussed AJ Hawk

http://www.draftshowcase.com/AJHawk.htm

He'd be perfect and we could trade down and acquire extra picks. However, I doubt that will happen. Are there any other rookies or FAs that we should be thinking about? I was thinking of the MLB from OSU (he's from Texas).

I like Greenway, but dont see him making it out of the first round. Freddie Roach, Rocky McIntosh are two guys that have impressed me. They both are 4-3 MLBs and play alot like Vilma, especially Rocky he is pretty much a Vilma clone.

Brooks has not declared. Kai Parham would be pretty good(he has experience in the 3-4) and in the 7th maybe some small school guy who flies under the radar.

Kai would be decent enough in the later rounds.

Small school guys: I posted an entire thread about sleeper LB's a week back or so. Nick Reid is a great MLB guy to look at in the 6th or 7th. He just has that "country boy, I'm going to kick your a** as soon as you cross that line" look to him.

McIntosh is currently my favorite option for our MLB spot since Brooks and Poluz did not declare this year. He will be a STUD in the league...and even if he's not, we know he is at least better than greenwood.

Abdul Hodge in the 2nd or Kai Parham in the 3rd. Hodge is a playmaker and flies to the ball while Parham has great size and is amazing at reacting to plays. Either or, it doesnt matter to me.

Those were the two guys I had in mind. Ithink we can expect Hodge around the second round (last I heard, he might drop because of Greenway), then Harris in either the 3rd or 4th, more likley 4th, depending on combine...that would leave us with Greenwood and Wong on the outside, not thay bad I guess..

haha, yeah...thats all I could think of.

But for our mods I will rephrase it:

Ahmad Brooks would have been DROY, amassing tripple digit tackles.

Great site! I like Anthony Schlegel, ILB, Ohio St.; believe he's from Texas and he has potential...may be able to pick him up on second day.

Heck, if we are talking about sleepers, Digger Anderson from North Dakota.
http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...r+anderson+nfl

Has experience in the 3-4(plays strong inside)and looks pretty good at adjusting to plays. Maybe a 5-7th rounder.

Kailee Wong played MLB in a 4-3 in Minn before coming to the Texans .... He put up decent numbers from that position in 2000 and 2001 . I think he would be the likely starter at that position at this point .... this being prior to the draft and free agent signings.

http://www.houstontexans.com/team/ro...l.php?PRKey=79

2000: Earned MLB slot in training camp and started all 16 games…paced team with career-best 134 tackles…added two sacks, two INTs and three passes defensed…posted 10 or more tackles in eight games

2001: Started all 16 games, leading Minnesota with 116 tackles…added three sacks, one INT and six passes defensed

There are a multitude of talented ILB prospects available in the coming draft and depending on what they do in the first round where I think they will take one of for players .... Those being Bush , Young , Mario Williams or D'Brickashaw Ferguson im sure that the position will be looked into at some point in this draft ... Here's a few prospects that the Texans could look after the first round .

D'Qwell Jackson, Maryland 6-1 231 4.65 (Round 2)
Anthony Schlegel, Ohio State 6-2 245 (round 3)
Aaron Harris, Texas 6-0 235 (Round 3)
Gerris Wilkinson, Georgia Tech 6-4 230 4.71 (Round 4)
Leon Williams, Miami (FL) 6-4 237 (round 4)

Kevin Simon, Tennessee 5-11 234 4.55 Could be a sleeper pick , This guy has tons of potential and could play multiple positions but has missed a ton of time because of injuries . Maybe take a flier on him in round 5 or 6 .

Seriously doubt that the Texans look at this position prior to round three and most likely later than that with all the holes thay have and with the rumored switch to the 4-3 .... They dont have a true 4-3 DE on the roster outside of G.Walker and he has durability issues not to mention his age and large contract . If the Texans switch to the 4-3 the DE position will take priority .

I agree, but Roger McInstosh and Nick Reid have my attention in the later rounds.
