It would be great for the Texans if:
-2 or 3 QBs;
-2 WRs; and
-2 or 3 RBs went in the top 13, assuming the Texans hope to go defense.
Last year, we got the 3rd defensive players, although we drafted 10th.

One thing about the draft is that you can never tell. Someone's stock might rise and fall a lot before the draft. For example, remember last year when there was talk of us drafting Tommie Harris? And Tommie's stock fell a lot last year even though he's been a solid player for the Bears this season. Then there was Kenechi Udeze, another possibility for us las year, but his stock fell too. I never heard of Dunta Robinson until a few days before the draft but his stock (luckily for us) shot all the way up! What I'm trying to say is that a few months from now some of these names we are familiar with like Derrick Johnson, Cedric Benson, C. Williams, Pollack etc., may emerge as players who might not be drafted as high as we think they will be right now.

I doubt that. Cedric goes top 5, possibly #2 overall. If he dropped, we should take him

It's pretty safe to say that Rodrick Wright won't be available at 13 or at 1 for that matter. While it's not offical, just about everybody expects him to return to Austin.

This is really what I meant for this thread--quotes from other threads with definitive statements of who won't be available.

So far:

Derrick Johnson
Braylon Edwards
Mike Williams
Antrell Rolle

Is it amusing only up until draft day? When "player A" is indeed chosen before the 13th pick, does it cease to be amusing?

I don't think there will be a list of twenty five this year. You might need a few "Shaun Cody will be gone" statements to make that number happen.

BTW, you can't use Shaun Cody in your list.

I think that Alex Smith, the QB from Utah, will be in the top 10 by draft day. Laugh at me now, But I think it's going to happen. This kid has what it takes from the neck up, and I think he might be taken before Aaron Rogers.

I think Alex Smith's performance against Pittsburgn will also put him in the top 10 too. The guy has great mobitlity, strong and accurate arm. He's a smart guy too. On the other hand Rogers' might fall a bit after his team's performance against Texas Tech.

What are the chances of us getting Mike Williams in the draft?

Lloyd: "like 1 in a hundred?"

Mary: "More like 1 in a million"

Lloyd: "So your tellin me theres a chance!"

Marcus McNeil decided to return to school after receiving a third round grade from the advisory committee.

Yeah, that's why I don't like talking draft in absolute terms too much until the Sr bowl and close to the combine. We will have a better idea how these guys grade out to the scouts soon. Until then most of these internet draft sites are not real accurate early on. They will all change their draft boards in another month or so.

as of right now i can see mike williams and alex barron availiable. i dont think they will impress at the combine. i dont think williams is a sensable option. bensons stock should fall, and without a team as stupid as miami he would probally be available for us....but i dont want him and we shouldnt even consider him. thomas davis right now is looking to be picked up by the lions.
matt leinhart will not be available until next year
alex smith will be the first quarterback taken.
for that crazy guy w/the mike nuegent post, he will be a third to fourth round pick, great upside.

Yeah the Nugent post is intended as a joke. Mostly because I heard a few people on the Bills MB wanting to take him with their 2nd round pick, and for the Bills that will be there first pick of the draft unless they trade up into the first round.

Rod Wright and Michael Huff Press Conference Transcript

Rod Wright
Opening remarks:
First of all, Id like to thank everybody for coming out. Id like to thank god for even having a decision of this magnitude. Id like to thank my family, friends, coaches and all my teammates that helped me with this decision. Id also like to thank coach [Mike] Tolleson, he really made me a man and the best player I could be. My goal for this team this year was to be the best that we can be. We won the Rose Bowl and it was a dream for all of us. I feel I have reached my peak and I have decided to take my talent to the next level ... Ok, Im just joking. Im staying another year.

On what went in to making his decision:
First off, it really dawned on me that coming back for my senior year would be priceless. I feel like I could have trained and competed to be the #1 defensive tackle taken, but it really dawned on me that if I leave, I would never see some of the faces that I would see in my senior season. I also thought about being in some cold city by myself watching this [Texas] team win a national championship and so I really felt that I needed to come back and help the team do that.
