You can't just decide that you are not going to draft a RB in the first round. What if all the players on top of your board are gone and Mendehall is there? You just skip him because you are intent on not drafting a RB? I draft the guy.

Mendenhall won't be there at 18 so that's a moot point.

If Fred Taylor can stay healthy for one year anything is possible. I think if they split carries like Fred Taylor has done with MJD, this might be a good signing for the Texans.

Anyone have a link to this yet? I know Cloak is a very reliable source, as well as Schefter on the NFL Network, I just always like to see it in print as well.

Sure you could. I'm not saying they have - or will, but I think it's a pretty good bet that they've decided they're not going to draft a WR in the first round, or an even better bet they've decided they're not going to draft a QB in the first round, so why can't you just decide the same thing about a RB.

With that said, yes, I agree that if Mendenhall drops to #18, there's an excellent chance they'll take him, but the chances of that happening are extremely small. As deep as the draft is at RB, there is a Super Duper Premium RB (McFadden), and a couple of Super Premium RB's (Mendenhall and Stewart) and then a steep drop off to whoever's next (F. Jones?). If Stewart's injury hurts his draft status (and I said if because I don't know the status at this point), then not only does he become less valuable, but Mendenhall becomes more valuable and is almost sure to be gone when we pick.

Brown didn't get injured last year, right? The Tacks just gave up on him in favor of LenWhale White, I thought.

Brown is a restricted free agent that means the tacks can match the offer sheet which will drive the price higher than expected plus cost the Texans some compensation (6th rd. pick) in return. still, if healthy it would be worth it

Everything I've seen lists him as an UFA.

You're mixing him up with the Denver C they may be signing to an offer sheet. Brown is UFA.

Tommy: Let's think about this for a sec, Ted, why do they put a guarantee on a box? Hmm, very interesting.
Ted: I'm listening.
Tommy: Here's how I see it. A guy puts a guarantee on the box 'cause he wants you to fell all warm and toasty inside.
Ted: Yeah, makes a man feel good.
Tommy: 'Course it does. Ya think if you leave that box under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter.
Ted: What's your point?
Tommy: The point is, how do you know the Guarantee Fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy, but we're not buying it. Next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser and your daughter's knocked up, I seen it a hundred times.
Ted: But why do they put a guarantee on the box then?
Tommy: Because they know all they solda ya was a guaranteed piece of shit. That's all it is. Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for right now, for your sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality item from me.
Ted: Hmm. Okay, I'll buy from you.

Nothing yet, but probably by the evening. I think someone said it's been mentioned on 610 as being a done deal.
