From what Kubiak just discussed in the press conference, Brown was their guy from the start at LT. You can never second guess the front office when we as fans don't have all the information. Everything Smith and Kubiak said lead me to believe they have wanted Brown for some time and had very good arguments to support it. He is definately a very athletic lineman and should help the running / zone blocking scheme that Gibbs will impliment. I still would not rule out us trading up and turning one of our 3rd round picks into a 2nd rounder.

Because all of you draft experts already know Phillips, Mendenhall, Cason, and whoever else you wanted already know that Duane Brown isn't going to be as good as them. You are all ready to put Rick Smith, Alex Gibbs, and Kubiak's head on a pike because you hate this pick. You guys are lame.

Welcome to the Texans Duane Brown!
well said sir!

I'll trust in Kubiak and Smith until proven otherwise.

I feel sorry for your stomach.

You are betting against Alex Gibbs.. who has had top tier offensive lines his entire career.. who hand picked this guy.

The fact that his strengths are his athleticism, and that he is a former TE... both very common traits shared by many of Alex Gibbs best olinemen.. should also be a big indicator to you.

but whatever..its your hat and your toilet. Id invest in a large bottle of pepto and some very fluffy toilet paper.

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

I've looked a little more into this guy and I'm coming around now.

According to this article, Kiper said he's the 5th best OT at best, 6th best OT at worst. He was the 8th guy taken, so by that logic, we got a bargain.

Quote:
Brown certainly caught the attention of ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.

"I'd be surprised if he's not gone by the end of the second round," Kiper said. "He's one of the faster left tackles in the draft, and he did 24 reps on the bench press at the combine."

Players bench press 225 pounds as many times as they can as part of their NFL combine workout.

"You can make the argument he's the fifth-best tackle in the draft, the sixth-best at worst," Kiper said.

Dude, maybe you need to go away for a while and chill out.

You've probably never seen this guy play. Do you know who he played against? Chris Long.
Alex Gibbs and Smithiak know what they're doing.
