Default Looking Ahead - 2007 Draft

I know it's a little pre-mature for this topic to even be posted but I'm bored and I was just curious and what you guys think..

Okay 2007 Draft who do you see us going after with our 1st Round Pick??

Me personally i have a couple of situational picks...

-----
1 - Lets just say that david Carr doesnt pan out well in this offense or for some reason just cant pick it up.. then likely we'll have a top 10 pick.

We should be taking a long look at Brady Quinn (Notre Dame) or Brian Brohm (Louisville).. If David Carr is struggling or is not picking up the offense using the high first rounder on one of these guys will let Carr know that either: "You Get With The Program or You're Outta Here" and it could either ignite a fire under Carr that gives him a Drew Brees "resurrection" season...

or it could eat away at him and if that's the case we have our QB of the future that was been learning the system and coming along slowly ready to get into the starting lineup and David Carr is now trade bait and I know for sure that we can get something on the first day for a very tough smart QB David Carr.
-----
2 - If things turn out a little better and it's not Carr's Fault let's just say that it was the defense that just wasnt coming along for whatever reason. We end up with a middle to late 1st round pick.. Then we have a few options..

S LaRon Landry (LSU) or CB Leon Hall (Mich) or S Brandon Merriweather (The U) or CB Daymeion Hughes (Cal) any of these guys could be a upgrade over our DBs (minus D-Rob). Landry is back for his senior year.. he was already considered the best safety last year, now imagine if he stays healthy he could end up being better this year. Leon Hall was crowned by Michigan coaches as the best Defensive Player since Charles Woodson left the program.

Our 2nd Cornerback position is looking a little iffy and we could bring one of these guys in and have them fight it out with Faggins or McKenzie for the spot. At the Safety position Glenn Earl has been solid for us so the SS is not a need so we go to FS where Merriwheather has been an absolute monster since Sean Taylor left the position.
---

3 - Lets just say for some reason the running game is just not adding up for some reason (which is highly unlikely- "come on it's Coack Kube's system) or let's say that DD cant stay healthy again but we end up in the middle to lower half of the first round.. because of good Qb and good defense..

Micheal Bush (Louisville), Marshawn Lynch (Cal) and Antonio Pittman (OSU - Jr) could possibly fall to the middle-late first. Bush is an absolute Monster at 6'3 248lbs and runs a 4.53 this guy could absolutely punish LB and DBs when they come in for the tackle. Bush hits the hole with authority. Lynch is a not as big but he is smart and instinctive. Antonio Pittman is FAST... he doesnt do a lot of dancing he just gets the ball and runs right pass people.
---

4 - Finally lets say that everything turns out well we end up with the bottom quarter of the first round.. we could trade out of the first and pick up and extra 2nd and 3rd.

2 - OT Gosder Cherilus (BC), CB Fred Bennett (SCSU)
3 - HB Tyrone Moss (The U) and BPA

We could possibly still add starters and add depth by doing this in the up and coming draft..

-------

Once again I know this is pre-mature. But just for laughs and giggles and to keep our eyes open on the up and coming talent.. what do you guys think?.. who would you like to see as a Texan??

There is no way I can wrap my head around next year's draft right now. There are entirely too many variables involved.

Man, I can't even think far enough ahead to know what I'll have for dinner. No way could I wrap my brain around the 2007 draft. Smoke starts coming out of my ears when I tried.

I dont share most of the boards optimism about our record...5-11 strikes me as about right, so i think this will be our last year of high draft picks for awhile...but i expect top 10 in 06

All I can say is no QB in first 3-4 rounds. Every other position is fair game. No need to "invest" another large amount of cash into a first day QB, when success shows that it is not a prerequisite for success.

This is a tough thing for me to do for a number of factors.
1. I dont know what positions the Texans will NEED next year. At the moment CB/S looks to be a good place to go, but who knows maybe we will have a strong Db group. You dont know till we get on the field and play.

2. I dont know WHERE the Texans will be picking. If there is a need position and the guy is a top 5 pick and we are a teens pick, we likley wont get him,

3. i have no idea where the texans Might be pickin. Who knows what our record will be and where we will finish.

Becuase of these reasons I find it hard to say who we should be looking at right now. See me in a few months.

Im just going to throw it out there right now: LaRon Landry or Michael Griffin. For some reason, I see CC Brown and Glenn Earl battling for the SS spot and us drafting a starting FS.

I feel fairly safe saying that there are only three positions I want the Texans to address at this point. MLB, WR, FS.

WR is very deep next year with Jarrett, Johnson, and Smith headlining that group. There will be some very pleasent surprises that arise throughout the year.

MLB is an average group right now IMO. Plouz is recovering from injury, and there are about 2 or 3 other top 40 MLB's this year, but I don't know their names yet.

FS is deep for its position, but not as deep as this past year. Merriwether and Landry headline the group, and both are top talents.

I can actually see Kubiak going WR next year if we have a top 12 pick. In Denver, they drafted a lot of WR's. Granted they were searching for a legitimate #1, but having a Calvin Johnson/Dwayne Jarrett combined with AJ is unfare. Imagine Arrizona's WR's, then think better. Moulds should be on his way out, but the Rookie could easily play back-up for a year until Moulds can't go anymore.

I would not count Moulds out for at least the next two-three years, WR is just not a need anymore. I do agree however a premier FS, MLB or CB would all be options depending on where the Texans finish and who is available when they pick.

Defensive/Offensive lines should be set, as well as the offensive skilled positions. Carr is our QB get used to it so the emphasis will still be on building a championship defense, standby lets see how effective the 4-3 is and the players entrusted to run it

I think we would have drafted Ko Simpson in the 4th this year if Kubes felt we really needed a safety, but if not everything goes right back there than I would love to have any of those two.

That would be a really good pick for us if he falls that far.
