Default Truth & Rumors: Texans' draft plans include tackle

Here's the Link:

Quote:
The Texans will draft a left tackle to groom behind Ephraim Salaam. They'll also draft a running back, a pass rushing end and a free safety. Right now, they have six picks. They might end up with one or two more, but it won't happen until draft day, in all probability. If Rick Smith re-signs Andre Davis, the Texans won't need a receiver.
Would this hint that regardless of who is drafted Salaam will be starting at LT next year?

Yeah I know it's Truth & Rumors - hopefully this stimulates so sort of conversation. Doubt it but none the less at least SI knows we need some OL help.

Will Salaam start at LT for game one? Probably.

Will Salaam start at LT by game sixteen? Maybe.

We all want to see Spencer picking up where he left off, but to be honest.... I wouldn't be at all surprised if Salaam starts the entire season. As far as drafting a LT.... I am not opposed to it. Can that person beat out Salaam? Probably not. They may see some garbage time action though.

Interesting that they don't list CB has a need. I still think we draft a CB in the first unless Kenny Phillips is available.

This is actually taken off this from John Mclain's blog here:

http://blogs.chron.com/nfl/2008/02/t...draft_and.html

He pieced together his info from the videos in that article though. Not bad for him.

I think DB is most likely addressed in FA. Seems like there are several fairly good players available, and I am not talking about the big names like Samuels, Trufant, ect....

I'm sure they already know exactly what they're doing about the CB position. It's WAY too key a position with our Defense for them to not have something up there sleeves. I think we'll be pleasantly surprised with our CB along side Bennett at the beginning of the season.

Here's what McClain wrote earlier in the blog:

Quote:
Many of you continue to think the Texans need to use thief first-round pick on a left tackle or a running back. My question to you is this: Who's going to play cornerback opposite Fred Bennett? Even if Dunta Robinson makes a miraculous comeback and plays before November, there's no guarantee he's going to pick up where he left off last season.


The Texans should approach the draft and free agency as if Robinson won't return in 2008. Von Hutchins, who filled in nicely, is a free agent, too. In other words, they must get a cornerback in free agency or the first round or both.

Default Re: Truth & Rumors: Texans' draft plans include tackle

And I agree.

But what the general is not posting is simply this: when does this organazation quit drafting for critical mass and start building a SB roster ?

Every year it's always something other than the o-line. the o-line has been pushed to the back of the stove for a while now. And the lines are the key. Make no mistake about it. You build from the inside out.

Nothing else works.

Not the playmakers, not the QB, not the Running back.Not the safties. You Tell me Gibbs is the savior of the o-line...prove it. Even coach Gibbs, as good as he is, has to have a starting point in tallent.

The safty pick tells me the Glen Earl experiment is over.

there is no reason to think that you should draft a lineman just to draft a lineman...Robert Gallery was not a good pick, Jordan Gross has been average, Big Mike Williams was a super bust in Buffalo... It all depends on who is there. You can find guys who can start all over the first day of the draft....and further back at times.

Twenty six games and counting. Franchise QB #2 and counting. The stuff is already starting to fly. MS is hurt a lot therefore it is MS's fault. He's brittle. Prety damn convient if you ask me. Everytime you switch QBs...you set the franchise back five years. This is year three removed FHHSNBN. And they have drafted exacatly zero offensive lineman in the first two rounds since that time. Tallent matters. And switching QBs every five years is .... very expensive.

Exactly. This guy seems to not be in touch with the situation. I would love to get an OT prospect but we need a CB or even a playmaking FS much more than we need a prospect OT this year. Maybe Tony Hills will be around in the 3rd Round and we can draft him. I just don't think there is an OT out there, other than Baker, that will still be around at #18 that would be a good value. I don't even want Clady at #18 and I hear he could be gone as early as New England's pick. We need DBs. I think Phillips and to a lesser extent Cason would give us good value at #18. Just my opinion but our secondary needs help and it needs help now.

And that is exactly the point Vinny. You can say the same thing bout first round QBs.
Does that mean you shouldn't, out of hand, never select a QB in the first round ? The wives tell that you always take the franchise QB first when you have the chance is a ...lie ?

On the other hand you can say that they have never taken a FS high and therefore Kenny Phillips should be the selcetion. Or the RB....However, the difference between those two and say a king dunlap type fourth round or fifth round prospect is the fact that they will not get your forty-eight million dollar QB killed if they are forced to start. See what I mean ? Been a while since Bosselli stood at the podium....wanna draft them late and make it work...so far it hasn't worked. Didn't work last year. And just which day two guy on the roster do you feel really comfortble with in front of MS ? See what I mean ?

Nice how you framed that as only the 1st two rounds since recognizing Spencer and Winston hurt your argument, well not really since it was so transparent.

The point isn't to never draft OL because they have busts, but to only draft players you think have the most talent/potential and not force a single position and increasing the risk of a bust as you advocate every year.

Is there a LT availaible at #18 that will be worth that pick? Nope, IMO. Will Kubes want to re-sign Von Hutchins and hope? Will he go CB in first and save that cap? He could then go LT in 3rd (maybe Cousins orTony Hill) and we could see how great Gibbs and Oline coach really are. Personally, I see Salaam as the starter anyway. Then an RB in 4th such as Patrick Allen from Oklahoma? 6'1" 195 4.45 but not sure if he shows up 100%. Maybe a Cory Boyd?

A trade down offer will be there but will Smith acceptthe offer? If it were me, barring a sweet heart trade, I'd go 1st: Stewart rb 3rd Tony Hill ZBS LT deluxe 4th:Trae Williams cb 5'10" 193 lbs 5th: Darnell Terrell 6'2" 200 lbs 4.43 This cat can play both CB and FS.http://mutigers.cstv.com/sports/m-fo...darnell00.html

So far, Kubes has not agreed with you that FS is that important.

Twenty six gmes and counting.... tick tock. Kick Winston over there...Frye. lol...Chester Pitts? Jordan Black...or Butler. Tell me another one.

the facts are and they have been posted several times.....play off teams feature high round picks on the left side. Not third rounders...not fifth rounders, but guys drafted in the first two rounds. We have zero of those guys. And... have never ever done it.

Satisfied with the results are you cak ?
Can you miss on them ?..uh huh....can you live without them and make serious SB run....nope.

The very moment the Texans break their trends, that will be the first step to the Sb run. Not before.

I honestly think we go after randal gay or similar FA for CB. regardless of when Dunta returns we need another corner anyway. Im guessing CB and LB in FA and OL, RB and safety in the draft, unless a pass rush specialist is available.

I don't see how you can talk in absolutes like that.

I can see the argument that picking a LT in the first makes positive scenario's more likely, but to suggest that is the only road available is just innaccurate.
