Default Time to cherry pick!

Im actually very happy with the draft we had but its always fun to cherry pick.

My cherry pick draft.

#26 Brown, Duane

#79 Molden, Antwaun

#89 Slaton, Steve

#118 Adibi, Xavier

#151Okam, Frank

#173 Johnston, Brian

#223 Hillis, Peyton


If reports are true and Seattle did call and offer #38 and #121 for #26 maybe we should of taken it. Look how much it could of effected our draft.

If I were to cherry pick with that trade

#38 Forte, Matt or Laws, Trevor or Rice, Ray

#79 Molden, Antwaun

#89 Slaton, Steve or Avril, Cliff or Cousins, Oniel

#118 Adibi, Xavier

#121 Bryant, Red or Hills, Tony

#151 Okam, Frank

#173 Rubin, Ahtyba or Johnston, Brian

#223 Hillis, Peyton

I would take the real draft over your cherry picked one any day. Tonny Hills doesn't fit the system at all. Cousins might to an extent but doesn't have near the upside.

Default Re: Time to cherry pick!

I tried, really, but just wouldn't change a thing cause if Brown does develop as expected thats a homerun & the Texans have to do a better job of protecting thier franchise QB whoever it is no matter what.

You can say the same thing about Molden . He was a top 10 finisher in every category at the combine except the 40 . I think Jenkins had a 4.38 in 10th place and Molden had a 4.39 . Molden had the most reps of 225 lbs .

I only wish we had taken Carl Nicks. He lasted until the 5th round.

Totally agree. All this 'system' stuff is so freaking fly by night. I always thought one of the fringe benefits of a ZBS system was you could could get guys later in the draft and assemble a group of guys that can do the job. Why did we reach in the 1st Round for a 'zbs' guy if that is the case? Just seems counter to the prevailing and historically successful logic for ZBS OL with Gibbs. The guy better be good.

The only pick I would have traded would be Johnston for Barber.

I also would have traded one of next years picks to get Nicks in the 5th rd.

My problem is with a guy like Carl is can he compete with Salaam for the starter position by August?6 games in? In the heat of a playoff push? Do you trust Salaam this year knowing there is going to be a healthy Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Jevon Kearse will be re-energized back in Tenn, VandenBosch, Jax FWIW loaded up on DEs with their picks this year.

Not leaning one way or the other just think Duane Brown has a better chance then anyone taken after him and a few before him in Gosder and Otah.

Over all it was a great draft for the Texans.

We are so lucky to have RS & KUBES in charge of the draft instead of a clown like Casserly

Default Re: Time to cherry pick!

I wouldn't have changed a thing with our first 5 rounds. Sounds like Barber is at worst, going to be a good special teams guy on our team and that's an often overlooked yet very important role. The QB is questionable, but I guess Kubes was locking in a guy he really liked to groom. I can see if Sage gets traded or leaves through FA eventually Brink may come in as a solid back up a few years down the road.

I'm glad Smith and Kubiak are running the show. I'm very happy with this.
