Default Kubiak comments on the possiblity of going LT in First Round

Coach Gary Kubiak disclosed on Tuesday that the Texans may select a left tackle in the first round of the draft despite signing free agent Jordan Black and re-signing Ephraim Salaam.
Although the Texans need another wide receiver to play opposite Andre Johnson, Kubiak said they might target a left tackle because Charles Spencer is still only 50-50 to make it back by the first game of the season.

"Right now, there's a big question about whether or not he makes it back," Kubiak said about Spencer being healthy for the opener. "I think we have to operate as if he's not going to be there."

"Right now, we're going to play with Ephraim and Jordan," Kubiak said. "If (right tackle) Eric (Winston) makes the steps this year that he made last year, maybe he could go over there.
****************************************
And here's a significant comment by Kubiak - Winston is also a real possibility
at LT if he continues his improvement.

IF Spencer makes it back

IF Winston continues to improve.

MAYBE we pick a left tackle in the draft.

Sounds like we are starting a guy who was signed for spot duty as a swing tackle back-up last year, unless the guy who was signed to be a back-up this year beats him out.

This is the first I've heard that the Texans are considering drafting a WR in the first round. Let's face it, we got a new QB, a new RB, lets give Schaub a #2 WR and our offense will be amazing. It's about time we get a solid #2 WR (I was good with Eric but obviously that didn't work out...)

If the line can't block, the QB can't throw, the RB cant run, and the Receivers can't catch.

Hey Mods - I screwed-up !
Somebody already placed this story over
in the Draft Section under the title "Kubiak - #10 pick may be OL? "
Sorry 'bout that.

Aside from Joe Thomas, there aren't any OL worthy of a top 10 pick. If the Texans take a tackle, they need to trade down and take one in the lower half of the 1st round so hopefully they can get an extra pick..

There's a sprinkling of what the article means to our current players too. We'll leave it.*


*Especially since that sprinkling was mine.

last year, all the talk was about QB and RB, and went with DE. This year they are talking about LT & WR. Is it misdirection, or are these serious possibilities?

Frankly, I wonder if he's 50-50 to make it back ever.

Default Re: Kubiak comments on the possiblity of going LT in First Round

I have no doubt that this whole story could be a Red herring, because
these guys are full of surprises.
Who really saw the Schaub move coming ? That was out of the Blue, and no
one had an inkling.
And taking Mario last year - one for the record books in Draft Annals when it
comes to stunning surprises !
I figure this story may just as easily be a plant to induce a trade from somebody below them vs. a real expression of interest in Levi B.

I to was trying to figure out if that's what Kubiak meant, or he was meaning to say 50-50 before the season opener ?
Dang, I'd like to get a clarification on that ?
