True, half the battle is finding someone who actually wants to trade up! Hopefully someone picking afew spots after us will scare someone into thinking they'll take someone someone after them wants. IE 2005 when Carolina (picking 14th) tricked New Orleans (originally picking 16th) into trading up with us (picking 13th) because they made NO think they'd pick the player they wanted.

Whatever the Texans do, after fumbling the 2006 draft, they better hit it out of the park. Maybe the new GM won't let Kubiak make stupid rookie head coach mistakes ala Charley Casserly.

1) Mario has looked fine considering he's playing injured, tons of potential
2) Ryans is probably the DROY, maybe pro bowl
3) Spencer is our future LT and is a badass
3) Winston has looked good, should be a starter for a while
4) Daniels is the most productive rookie TE
6) Lundy is keeping up with the rest of the rookie RBs
7) Anderson is still learning, not bad considering how many 7th round picks do nothing

So howd we fumble the entire 2006 draft? And please dont use the "we screwed up the 1st pick and thats most important" ideology becuase this could be one of the best draft classes we've EVER had and your calling out everyone we drafted . . .

A quick case-study of our past draft with Kubiak or any past draft in Denver will tell you that RB top 10 is a no go. Hughes is looking at a second round grade right now, and Hall is sliding a bit with all the Juniors being physical guys.

I say we take a DB. We would win more games if our DBs didn't get burnt every game.

D-Rob was a top 10 pick...that worked out fairly well.

Default Re: If the draft were to happen today...

Detroit has the 1st pick "If the draft were to happen today" they would draft Brady Quinn, so would Oakland if they have the #1 pick. picking #2 & Quinn off the board Oakland should trade down or take Calvin Johnson. Tampa would pick 3rd don't need Peterson, would consider Gaines Adams. Arizona is picking 4th, with Joe Thomas still on board he would be their pick. That leaves the Texans picking 5th selecting RB Adrian Peterson . Kubiak takes a RB this high because both McNair & Kubes promised to MAKE Carr a winner & Peterson is the best weapon available or means to an end resolving this matter.

Based on your scenario I say the Texans take Posluzny.

NO, based on history of Kubiak/Denver/Gibbs. They don't draft RBs in RD 1 and the oline philosophy is draft 3 RD and later. Go with other skilled or specialist in RD 1.

I agree, nice draft but if we took VY it would of been the greatest draft ever.

That logic has nothing to do with VY and a lot to do with Reggie. Of course how quickly we forget that DD was active and there wasn't 3 oline on IR. But as a beerlover you know how beer can cause memory loss.

no amount of beer has yet been found to wipe the memory of who & what the Texans passed on with the 2006 #1 pick, but I'll keep trying
