Default Okay, what should be our 4th Round pick?

So, there's still some value out there. So, who do you think will be the choice with a top 4th round pick?

Some possibilities: David Irons, CB Auburn; Fred Bennett CB, S. Carolina; Doug Free, OT; possibly Wendling but he looks much more like a SS.

A couple names I wouldn't be surprised to hear at our 4th round pick:
Doug Free (OT, Northern Illinois)
Brandon Frye (OT, Virginia Tech)
Josh Beekman (OG/C, Boston College)
Antonio Pittman (RB, Ohio St.)
Rory Johnson (LB, Mississippi)
Stephen Nicholas (LB, South Florida)
Fred Bennett (CB, South Carolina)
David Irons (CB, Auburn)
Brandon Harrison (S, Stanford)

Give me Tanard Jackson or Josh Gattis. I really think we should go FS or CB in round 4, we can get good value there and better value at OL later on.

OT would be my first choice here. I'm not up on how much talent is left for Sunday's picks, but if we can get a solid backup to get rid of some of the bottom feeders on our O-line, I'll be good.

After the 4th, if the rest of them just replace the second stringers on our team that wouldn't ordinarily even be on a pro football team, I'll take that as a sign of progress.

They can still find some players in the latter rounds. As ESPN told us ad nauseum yesterday, Tom Brady was selected in the 6th round.

Just a matter of finding guys who will work in their scheme.

I like Doug Free T and David Irons CB

But I also like Doug Datish C Ohio State, could start the year as back-up and work his way to being the starter. Plus he has the ability to play multipule spots on the O-line (which our staff likes).

I think our pick should be someone who can make the roster, and be active on Sundays. The "active on Sundays" part might preclude the group of tackles left. If not, Doug Free or Adam Koets out of Oregon State make the most sense.

Defensive backfield is still an area of concern, and there is still talent available. Honestly, I think Tarrell Brown of UT is the best CB on the board, unless he's understandably off the Texans board due to character issues. Baylor's Anthony Arline and Hampton's Travarous Bain have the most upside of the corners left. Tanard Jackson and josh gattis could be immediate contributers at safety (and jackson can play CB, as well).

Tim Shaw could push for the starting Sam LB spot and Rufus Alexander could provide depth and compete at the Will spot in the future.

Finally, if you're still concerned about the Texans getting a pass rush from the edge (I am), UT's Brian Robison and Husker Black Shirt Jay Moore provide value at DE.

4. 123 (via NO)
5. 144
5. 163 (via NO)
6. 183

Saints, Texans swap fourth-rounders
New Orleans Saints: Acquire pick No. 107 (selected RB Antonio Pittman). Houston Texans: Acquire picks No. 123 (fourth round) and No. 163 (fifth round).

For value, Rufus Alexander and Doug Free make a lot of sense here. A pick I'd really like to see though is Troy Smith.

Troy Smith for us?

Personally I think we have greater needs. Dont we have 4 or so QBs under contract?

Just announced, Fred Bennett at #123. Solid addition for us, he is a big CB or maybe even a FS.

But none other than Rosenfels who have an NFL future. This guy could be a career backup/potential Schaub replacement if things don't work out. If the Nat'l Championship never happens, he's prob a top 50 pick.
