Default Any shot at McFadden?

So, the Texans have a monster schedule left, with Fragile Matty and half the line out. So, if the Texans choke their asses off, will they have a shot at McFadden? I guess the 9ers have to go on a winning streak to keep the Pats away from him, but we may have an outside shot.

If we do, we either get the best player in the NCAA or we have great trade bait.

Any thoughts?

Default Re: Any shot at McFadden?

Pats need to discover a burning need at other than RB and we have to continue to play as we have, then we have a legitimate shot. Dolphins have many needs & I encourage all Texans fans to do a mind weld and whisper "Dorsey".

How about Schaub and two 2nd round picks? You need a QB and would then have three 2nds... no I ain't buying it either.

Default Re: Any shot at McFadden?

Shoot, maybe Miami should take Matt Ryan. Or draft McFadden and hope for a McNabb or some veteran and bank on Beck for the future? What does Miami do?

The Patriots are going to take McFadden if they have the chance. Maroney and McFadden, Tom Brady, Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Donte Stallworth sounds like an all star team.

I imagine teams will be trying to get McFadden before the Patriots pick. Nobody wants the Pats to get McFadden.

It would be quite a site to see a 5 win team have the #2 or #3 pick in the nfl draft (with their original draft pick!)

I doubt that the Dolphins will draft McFadden for any reason other than trading him, unless they have real concerns that neither of their currently injured Running Backs will return to form.

Default Re: Any shot at McFadden?

Apparently the dolphins have tried to hijack this thread, but Apple, I dont see a shot in he77 in McFadden.... Most mocks that i have seen have us picking around 12, 13 or 14 spot. Each mock had us picking anywhere from an OT to LB (from Penn State) or a RB (if Felix Jones from Arkansas comes out)...

Quote:
14. Houston Texans - Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas *
The Texans haven't had a strong option at running back since the injury and subsequent retirement of Domanick Davis (a.k.a. Domanick Williams) in 2005. Ahman Green has proven to be yet another example of the low-end payoff of bringing in a 30-year-old running back to carry the load, and with the RB talent that should be present in this draft, there should be many players from which to choose for the Texans.

The four-year contract Green signed is going to haunt the Texans; the $5 million signing bonus was tough, the $3 million earned in salary and roster bonus in 2007 was stiff, and the large salaries lined up for the next three years will make it difficult to justify retaining him, particularly in years three and four.

There are a wide variety of running backs for the Texans to choose from, but Jones is an elite, elusive talent who could be a starter from the get-go for the Texans.

* indicates player with NCAA eligibility for 2008 who may opt to enter the 2008 NFL Draft

I dont get the obsession with Dallas trading up for McFadden.

They really aren't hurtin in the run game right now:

#7 in rushing offense (121.4)
#5 in YPC (4.3)
#10 in rushing TDs (11)
#5 with only 3 lost fumbles

I expect them to get a top CB & maybe another LB or DL before they go RB, even if it is McFadden.

As you say, with Houston Nutt leaving and Arkansas a big "?", I would say there is a pretty good shot at him declaring.

Default Re: Any shot at McFadden?

I wonder if Dallas would be more likely to trade up for Felix than they would be for McFadden. I still say it's going to be a horrible trade for Dallas if they trade all the way up to #1. They won't have to trade away as much to move up to somewhere around where we are picking.
