Default Chris Houston

On nflta they said he is now a top 10 player.....mike mayock thinks he is the BEST press coverage in the draft.....will start from day one.....says leon hall does everything ok but nothing great....and gives up inside leaverage....but houston doesnt have as good of ball skills.....what would you guys think of us goin with houston??????i like the idea....ive seen film where he has shut down some of the better receivers in college....thats what we need....esp against teams like colts we need to press more....

Default Re: Chris Houston

I would love for us to drop down a few spots if possible and maybe get a 2nd round pick in the process. then take the best DB available in Nelson, Hall, Houston, Revis.

I have no problem with any of these guys....or okoye, carriker, anderson, brown.....lol.

I want houston just cause his name (im sure this has been said). That is one jersey that can last a long time and never be outdated.

I would be thrilled if we got Houston or Revis in the first. We may be able to trade back slightly, say to Carolina, but not much.

trade back, receive a 2nd rounder

1 Revis/Houston/Hall CB
2 Abiamiri DE
3 Hill/Smith/Taylor/Williams/McKnight...pretty much Best WR Available
4 Paul Soliai DT
5 Roderick Rogers FS

defense is set with pass rush, top 3 corner in the draft, space eater in the middle, and a solid safety (dunta and one of the CB's drafted should help him out)

I dont care what anyone says...

if you take out mcknight out of the WR picture since his nickname in the pros will be mcdrop i'm fine with everything you got...however everything i've been hearing in the papers, other mocks, radio, and anywhere is pretty much saying that we're going to go offense with the first pick...which is ok...a lot of people around the league feel that we're going to be targetting levi brown or dwayne jarrett...i can see positives of both...but i'm a defensive guy...personally i want landry...but i doubt we'll be able to get him at the 10th spot...next on my list is reggie nelson via trade down...then i go to the corners...then to the DE's...but i could definetly live with your mock

Default Re: Chris Houston

For some reason I'm just not sold on Chris Houston....has the tools but this guy was burned quite a few times and also got tagged for numerous past interference calls in 06...I get the feeling his stock rose due to his combine efforts which some have said was mostly because he is a gym rat...

Really, Who did he get burned by? Every game against the elites he shut them down. His stock was already late 1st early 2nd before the combine. The combine helped solidify the draft position.

Yeah if he takes #32, then I already have his jersey. From when the first jerseys came out before we had any players. They put HOUSTON #32 (being the 32nd franchise)

The shutdowns against the elite I'd say were 50/50....teams generally didn't throw his way so thats a plus for him...but for instance I remember watching the Tenn game and Meachum was only thrown at about 6 times and he had 4 catches and 1 a TD...The LSU game Bowe still had almost 70 yds on just a few catches..not to mention the 1st game of the year, sure Jarrett only had 35 yds receiving but USC torched them so bad in every aspect I don't think its warranting mentioning any defensive effort...He also gave up TDs to Wis, Bama, Miss St and SoCar...Houston is fast and can lift weights, but somehow I think he needed more experience but his stock is soaring and I hope if he becomes a Texan my gut will be dead wrong (which is has been known to be especially at Texas Hold'em)

I like Houston partly because he went to my HS. He's as strong as they come at corner but is still only average against the run. With all that strength and speed its hard to see him not panning out to be at least a quality #2 corner.

Hilarious and a good post, if they did draft houston I would go out and buy his Jersey the next day, just for that reason.

Ok all kidding a side, I am sure some of yall know how much of a ND guy I am but some dont. I have seen Hall play a lot and I think he is a good player but honestly I do not think there is much upside to him. where as Houston is about on par with him but I honestly believe that there is a lot of upside to him. He messes up on a lot of plays but because of his ability he over comes them.

Of course I do not know much about revis except what I have read which is a shame.
