Default Kenny Phillips to enter the draft

http://www.miamiherald.com/606/story/335583.html

''I definitely agree that if you're [projected] in the top 15 you should go,'' Phillips said Sunday. ``It's not every day that guys get the opportunity to live out the dream and play in the NFL.''

Phillips was asked what he would do if he were projected to go in the last half of the first round.

''Well, then, you just have a decision to make,'' he said. ``People would still love to be in your position. We don't get these opportunities every day, so you definitely have to take advantage of them.

''I'm probably thinking just like Coach Shannon talked about, top 15 -- but I probably could stretch it,'' he said, laughing.

I don't care if some teams like the Redskins use top 10 picks on safetys, I still
think the position can be filled nicely with a lower round, even much lower round pick.
What's your thoughts on the relavance of position as a factor in Draft picks Kastofsna, or do you think its all about the individual player and his position is one of irrelavance ?

If he's available and a quality LT isn't, we should grab him.

Does anyone think Phillips' down year could be attributed to a new coaching staff?

He's still probably my first choice since we won't have a chance at McFadden.

He sounds like a guy the Texans would have no reservations about.

People can say he played poorly this year all they want, but quite frankly, sometimes its hard to look good when the rest of your team is playing horrible. These Canes aren't the same ones of years past.

I like the fact he's not a loud mouthing show boating kind of guy from Miami. Come to think of it, he reminds me a lot of AJ.

Default Re: Kenny Phillips to enter the draft

This is one of the guys that should be available with our 1st Round pick. it's gonna be doubtful that a LT worthy of our 1st Round pick will still be there when we pick. Baker and Long will both be long gone by the time we pick around 10-15. Ryan Clady out of Boise State has just too many questions and we all know what happened the last time we drafted a football player in the 1st Round from a 2nd rate college....Carr happened. We need to get guys who played top competition in college so there is less of a chance that he will be outclassed when he makes the jump to the NFL.

Maybe we can wait till our 3rd Round pick and hope that Tony Hills out of Texas may be available. I doubt Kubiak would smart enough to draft a longhorn anyway. We all saw what he did with VY....

If we could get Kenny in the 1st Round and then draft another OL with our 3rd Round pick, I would be happy with our draft. We could then use our later picks to draft a Center and some speed at linebacker. As long as we resign Dre Davis, I don't think we need to draft a WR.

Unless some stud RB is there when its time for our 1st Round pick, I say we go with Phillips and FINALLY get a FS worth a flip to play for the Texans. Felix Jones and Antoine Cason would also be good alternatives with our 1st Round pick. Any of those 3 guys would make me happy, to be honest. Maybe Dan Connor would be a good fit and then we could move Demeco to OLB. We have some youth but we need some new blood...fo sho

any position can be filled with lower picks. you should never have a predetermined idea for where certain positions should go, because these days, teams aren't going to just sit and wait for players to drop, they will grab them, even if it's a little high based on the general predetermined census.

What I'm going to enjoy is the paradiam shifting our last four games. I've been warning about this day would come one year for the last four years. Well guess what ? It's here. Well if we're lucky Washington will jump us and take the choice off our board.

With huge holes at RB, CB, and LT, I don't see using a high pick on a safety. If Dunta was healthy, maybe, but he will probably be gone for 2008.

If we start leaning more to the 3-4, then Conner or the kid from Ohio State could be the pick.

Even if Dunta is going to miss next season I think our Safties are weaker than our CB's

No fricken kidding. We have this argument every off seaon. They take the RB, FS...never taken one high. They won't get your 48 million QB in a wheel chiar. Porous o-line will. You tell me. How many more hits does MS have left in the tank ?

I think Will Demps has played pretty well. He's more a short term solution, but I don't know that Kenny Phillips would be any better his rookie year.

the only absolute is that the Texans select the absolute best player available. its virtually a given that whoever it is will upgrade that position & overall talent while addressing needs.
