Question Three Guys I Want

According to Rivals.com, the Houston Texans three primary needs are at running back, cornerback, and defensive end. I may disagree with the latter, but I might be interested if Calais Campbell is available later on in the draft (Highly Unlikely IMO).

So, I decided to look at the top prospects that the Texans can get for each of the three positions:


Running Back:

Chris Johnson (East Carolina)

5’11”

195-Lbs.

Lacks the bulk and only rushed for 1,000+ yards during his senior year but had tremendous speed and ran a 4.30 40-yrad dash. (Also we might want to look at Mike Hart from Michigan, lacks bulk but is a proven back who carried his team on his back, only had 3 fumbles in his entire career.)


Cornerback:

Mike Jenkins (South Florida)

6’0”

200-Lbs.

Character issues and is not a great run support but has good size and has experience at safety and corner.


Like I said above, I don’t agree with the DE. I think we need an offensive tackle and here is the guy I want.

Offensive Tackle:

Gosder Cherilus (Boston College)

6’7”

320-Lbs.

Hails from a program known for producing good NFL linemen. Might not be able to play left tackle but that’s for Alex Gibbs to decide. A smart linemen with great balance and huge frame and size.

Not a bad list at all and any one of those guys would be a tremendous help. Gosdner Cherilus has all the measurments you look for in a LT, but he struggled at times last season. But it wouldn't hurt to get a guy with his experience and ability. Great wish list!

Darius Walker & Mike Hart are not the same player.

Hart has intangibles that no other player in this draft has, except MAYBE Matt Ryan.

Mike Jenkins is evaluated by many as best CB & should be gone way before #18 even with issues. Chris Johnson whom I like is behind both Stewart and Charles with both a good chance at being there @ 18. Gosder Cherilus is pretty heavy for LT in Zone Blocking Scheme. He allowed 5 QB sacks and four pressures. Penalized seven times.Does have a good time of 5.14.

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings....php?pyid=9100If you are talking about him for #18 in first, I think several LT that are better suited could be had in lower rounds. My 2 cents

I spoke to a former college coach of Ray Rice and he had nothing but good things to say about him. Said he was durable and a stand up guy. Keep in mind Rutgers runs a zone blocking scheme so we could be looking at their linemen as well.
