Default Laron Landry -- Period....

I am not just saying this because I am a huge LSU fan. I am saying this because this is the route the Texans need to take with the 8th pick or if they possibly trade up, they still need to get this guy. He is a type of player that can change the look of our defense and actual put some fear into opposing offenses when we play. When has this team ever had that look - NEVER.

Not to mention if you have Mario, Demeco and Dunta alongside, all of a sudden you have very young and talented defense with some spunk and attitude.

Please please please for the love of god Texans DO NOT DRAFT BRADY QUINN.

What you saw in the sugar Bowl is only a glimpse of how much he might struggle at the next level.

Of course if it was me I would do whatever it takes to get my man Jamarcus. With JR at the helm you could have Mathis run a post anytime you want and my man can let it fly.

But seriously we need Laron.

DONT MESS THIS UP TEXANS.

Thats what I am hearing as well. But 1 of the teams that I was worried about was the Cardinals and I just read that they signed a safety for 5 years so that helps. I am actually worried about Tampa Bay with Laron in all honesty.

LaRon will be fine as long as Calvin Johnson, Joe Thomas, or Adrain Peterson are not available. I could care less who they do or do not draft. I have faith in the head honchos to believe they will make the right decision come draft time. But to say him, PERIOD is stretching it some... There is not 1 player that is a PERIOD draft pick for us...

You have faith in the Honchos that paid Carr $8 million this time last year and $5 million for Moulds and a 5th round draft pick?

They did a good job with Demeco, but all other picks and free agent moves reamain to be seen.

If AP is available with the eight pick, we pick AP. period. And as for Quinn, you can't judge him by one game. He has alot of talent and has been tutored by Weiss. He's also smart and has a competitive spirit. Even peyton Manning didn't look good in every game in college. You can't be closeminded and rule out Quinn just yet. You have to look at every option. And the Texans will trade up to draft Peterson or Quinn but not Landry. I think he will be available with the eight pick.

That is pretty much the way it is going to be. Peterson, Russell, Quinn, Johnson and Thomas will be gone in top 5.

Default Re: Laron Landry -- Period....

the great thing about the projected landry pick is it solves two problems for the defense...it solves our need of a pro bowl caliber FS who doesn't allow the big plays but creates them...it also drastically improves the things we can do defensively...this allows guys like faggins and d-rob to be more aggressive at the line of schrimage...more bump coverages that i think both of our corners are better at than lining up 5-10yds away from the reciever

also IMO the difference between quinn, stanton, and kolb is coaching...i think charlie weis has done a great job with a kid who before he got there was considered by most notre dame alum to be a waste of a signing...his first two years there were horrible...he couldn't hold onto the starting job...he wasn't reacting to the defenses correctly...the list goes on...i think we can wait til the third round...pick up kolb or stanton whoever is still there...kolb if both are there...and let kubes do his thing with the QB's

QFT. If we pass on Quinn, this board could be in for it, if we play him this season and he whips us. Then again he probably won't be playing and be holding a clipboard.

Spot on. I fell a lot more comfortable having Faggins still at corner if Landry is in our backfield. True FS that we don't have that will really help faggins out.

With the Landry pick we do the following:
1) get a true FS
2) help out faggins over the top
3) could allow the LB's to play closer to the line and not drop in coverage
4) could allow Mario and our line more 'coverage' sacks. Mario won't get many sacks if a)he's double teamed...and b) if the QB can get rid of the ball before Mario EVER has a chance to get there.

Landry should be the pick...even if we move up to 6 in some sort of trade..it should be because we want' to "guarantee" us get Landry...and that trade should only happen on draft day w/ Landry on the board.

Laron Landry and Ryan Kalil would be the two biggest draft picks for us. My 2 dream picks there.

1. Quit wasting your time even dreaming now that AP is going to get past the browns wit hthe Droughns trade. He's going to cleveland. That is a period.

2. Everything you said about Laron is on spot. Agreed 100%

3. Not worried about the cards. One thing i am wondering is Matt LEinart is a lefty...and a blindside for that would be RT....Levi Brown could be put there. I would like to at least see us STRONGLY consider Levi at 8.

4. If Calvin Johnson is on the board Tampa teleports to the podium and dances a jig as they select him.

5. You are wrong about Quinn. He'll be a solid pro given a decent situation and talent to work with. He did pretty damn good at ND with sub par skillset talent....i wonder what he could do with genuine NFL talent.

6. Ole Miss Texan.....Laron Landry/Levi Brown followed by Kalil is a good dream for me as well. On a thread i did i looked at the center situations in teams in the later part of the first round and begining of the second round. Looking at those situations and this draft being stacked at the top for WR and defense. It's possible Kalil can fall to us.

1. true
2. true
3. I think the Cards should take Levi. 5 may be high for him or for a RT, but that would make the most impact on their team imo. That would be huge for them.
4. true
5. I really hope you are right...if you could help me what teams late 1st early 2nd have good centers..and which might grab him? I see WR,DL, Cb there may be some good talent at the top of the 1st. I also saw oakland got a new C in FA.

well i think with all the trades the lions have done recently i think they'll trade down with arizona and probably take less than absolute value there...arizona will take joe thomas...instead of reaching for him at the 5th spot...detriot at the 5th spot i would guess would take either gaines adams or alan branch but with their recent signings of dewayne white and the fact that they are pretty much loaded at DT i doubt those will be the picks...watch for them here to either take landry, hall, or AP if he's still there

Default Re: Laron Landry -- Period....

Here's a question for ya'll to ponder. While he's spent the majority of his playing time at FS, would you entertain the idea of switching him to CB? According to the write-up on him at NFL.com, he could project to either position in the NFL.

http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/2007/landry_laron

What if we were to sign a veteran FS like Hamlin? I could see justifying taking him in the top 8 picks, if he were a CB. But, FS is not a position that is normally taken that high, & especially by a team with as many glaring holes as we have. Signing a proven player like Hamlin at FS would be cheaper & yield similar results on the field.

CB is also a huge need for us, but quality veteran CB's usually cost a lot more money than a top 8 rookie. What about Reggie Nelson switching to CB? Otherwise, I'd trade down & pick up one of the other CB's, like Hall, Revis, or Houston.
