Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

One of the most knowledgable football guysa in Houston is Lance Z now on 1560 and as he has said from day one Alewx Gibbs will be our biggest offseason acquisition this year. The guys is a witch when it comes to the O'line, had Denver leading thre NFL in rushing went to Atlanta and thn they take oiver the top spot leading the league in rushing. One of his best skills is finding talent that fits his scheme while others are passing them bye. If Brown was the guy he wanted then get his a$$ get him into camp and then get the Hell out of the way. If they really wanted Brown fromthe get go then they did a hell of a job drafting by picking up picks and still getting their guy.

Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

If it makes anyone feel any better I read two mocks yesterday that said Brown was a sleeper and had the athleticism to be a a late 1st/early 2nd rounder. Made me think he might be a guy to target. I think they had their mind set as the board fell a certain way.

You know what, if the media hates this pick, then I am 100% behind it.

I hate this pick. In fact this is the same way I felt when we passed on DJ and drafted Travis Johnson.

I was in my car listening to Ted Deluca and John Lopez when they made the pick and it made me sick to my stomach. Not the pick, but Lopez and Deluca trying to act as if they know what they're talking about, dissing the pick, trying to stir some controversy, etc...

What we'll never know is if some other team had him targeted early in the 2nd round.

We didn't get enough in return for trading down, IMO. A late 3rd rounder and a 6th is weak for trading back eight spots.

That is the disappointment. The Skins did the same thing to move 4 spots and threw in a 4th I think to get a 2nd. A 2nd is Round 1b in this day and age. 8 spots should have been worth more.

Yep. I hate this draft so far.

Thats what I said. I think someone after us got a 1st and a 4th for trading back.

The desperation to add more picks was evident.

BPA my left foot.

But before that, no one was giving up a second. The old JJ draft value chart has very little value anymore.

BTW, did you guys catch that in the other thread? The Texans wouldn't even trade back 2 more spots with Seattle at 28 - that's how set they were on Duane Brown.

Here's what really bothers me about this guy. John Harris, who knows his football talent, was on the 1560 Draft show today with LZ and he said he's been watching this guy play in college for the last 2 years and even went to the East-West Shrine game here in Houston this year and saw him practice & play in person. Harris said Duane Brown is a 4th round pick !

:elle:


We got a 1st, a 3rd, and a 6th for trading back :P.

We got the same value that everyone else got. Complaining about what we got for trading back is just whining...we could not have gotten more.

not this year, since this is a draft that's deep but not spectacular.

Yeah, get ready for lots of that. I can't imagine any of the radio personalities liking this pick. It's almost guaranteed that the entirety of the sports media is going to shit on this pick and our entire draft because of it.

I don't think he's really going to contribute a lot this year though, and I do also think we might've had a decent shot at getting him in the 3rd round. But he's an athletic Olinemen which pretty much fits what the system calls for.

Cheers.
