Default So what holes do we fill now?

Do we fill them through free agency (anyone out there?) or through the draft? Who are the guys you think that can help this squad out? What are our weak spots?

I agree with SES. Our secondary is the weakest part of our team right now. I guess we're stuck with Buchanan, so we'll need a good tackling safety to take care of all the ball-carriers P.Buch misses (or just fails at attempting tackles).

I agree with the OG, CB, and SS, but we have to draft these high so we get immediate impact players.

Im going with Infantrycak on this one ....

I think the Texans have two solid players capable of filling the SS position in Earl and Brown . Neither of those guy's is very well suited for the FS spot . They just arent real good in coverage ..... FS is the "Quarterback of the secondary" .... Not real sure I want to see a rookie start the season there .... But if this is just a season where we hope to see growth this is the time to do it.

Then we have the CB position . Faggins may well turn into a player who can start there .... But at this point he's just a real good nickle corner . P-Burnt is just a waste of talent IMO. He's got all the tools to be a great corner but just doesnt have the brains to get the job done nor the WANT to tackle anyone ...

I'd also like to see them take a RT to groom behind Wiegart or Wade . Also a MLB who is more athletic than those on the roster.

Cornerback and offensive line are our biggest needs. I think we are probably done signing players in free agency. The rest of our upgrades will be through the draft.

True. I think Earl can handle SS, but Buchanon sure hasnt given us much in a starting CB. Our DTs are fine but yes I think DE should be looked at through the draft. Don't know if we can make room in the draft for all the positions that we want new starters at, though.

At 2nd round, I like Max Jean Gilles from Georgia a left tackle with good feet and balance @ 341 6' 4". "dominates line with a mean streak". He is projected to play guard in pros but might go either way. In 3rd, I'd take best cb available and best mlb. in 4th I'd go with best safety or dline. Can a "fast line backer or "strong corner" be adapted to free safety and be successful? I know Coleman didn't work out.

I guess it depends on if your talking in FA or the draft or using both. I would like to see a starting level O-line gaurd picked up after the June 1st cuts IF one is available (really doubt it, but???). If a starting level FS comes available after June 1 then that's the thing to do and that is more likely than an O-lineman. Then the draft IMO needs to be a starting level Tackle with the second, then a FS or CB with the 1st 3rd and then the best OG with the second of the 3rd round picks. Then anylise who is the best defensive talent that drops out of the first day and take that guy with the 4th rounder.

I agree with a lot of that. I think we should take McNeil, OT from Auburn, in the second round. He has shown a lot of potential and the ESPN Mock Draft Version 6.0 has projected him being barely out of the 1st round.... which lines him up with our 33rd pick.

I see CB and FS as our most pressing needs. First day picks on these positions.

SS is covered in Earl and CC Brown.

Our O-Line seems to be better with the addition of Flanagan and the reshuffle to better suit the blocking system. I would like to get some depth/future starters in the draft though.

Maybe some young LB talent.

Lets assume we take Bush with the 1st overall pick. Lets look at this as a two draft process of rebuilding. What is it we still need?

Needs
CB/NB - Depending on whether the staff thinks Buchanon is even remotely salvageable or not determines how high we should take a corner. In all likelihood, very high.

DE - I really think the defense will be the focus of the draft in 2007. A stud DE would be a nice addition in that draft with either our 1st or 2nd rounder.

FS - CC Brown and Glenn Earl need to stick with playing SS. Jammal Lord has yet to show us anything of note (although he still has a pulse on the roster). I think we should use one of our middle round selections on one this season.

Interior lineman - Flanagan, McKinney and Wiegert are not getting any younger and Hodgdon and Weary have not proven to be long-term starters to date. We clearly need an infusion of young talent here.

MLB - Sam Cowart is on the tail-end of his career. He is a stop-gap acquisition. We need to find someone good to great to groom behind him. We may have to wait until 2007 and use a 1st or 2nd on one. However, the team may decide to take on in the 3rd this year instead.

OT - It can be debated till the cows come home whether Pitts is better suited to LT, RT, or even guard. Regardless, I think Wiegert is better suited to playing RG than RT. Wand could materialize, but we have been down this road before. I think the best course of action is to grab the best OT left at the beginning of the 2nd. If there is a late 1st round run on them, we may wait until the 3rd and grab one of the "leftovers" that fall into our lap.
