Default Size does matter!

Size does matter!

In this case, I mean the size of the NFL draft … and in this case, the Houston Texans are the only AFC team with 4 first day picks (‘Terrific 12’ guys). In fact, assuming there aren’t any trades (unlikely), they will have been able to select 4 players by pick 79! (approximately - I’m not solid on our selection slots in round 3). Most (10 out of 16) AFC teams (below) will only have picked 1 or 2 players at that point of the draft:

- Dolphins, Bengals, Bills, Jags, Ravens, Broncos, Jets, Patriots, Colts, Steelers

Many of these teams will likely be the next year’s AFC Playoff teams.

Quantity & Quality

In the 2004 draft, some teams (Cowboys, Colts & Titans) gave up their 1st round picks in order to accumulate additional picks (the Cowboys only had 5 picks at the start of the 2004 draft, as I recall). The Texans not only have the best first day quantity in the AFC, they also have the 13th overall pick. IMO, they are well positioned to move around, or make a power play (trading picks to move up) in the 2005 draft. This could be an exciting draft for Texan fans.

You also have to consider the fact that this years draft is not near to as deep as last years, and we had 4 picks last year as well and ended up with 2 1st rounders, you never know.

i really dont think Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon will last to the second round if he declares. i think the texans might try something like last year and trade back into the first round for him. first round should not be used on a rb or safty or cb. first round should strictly be for trenchs this year, unless someone of great value falls to us. ie: johnson or rolle. other than that it should be used for both lines, bpa. barron might slip to us.
i am not very big on wright from UT.
two senarios for mock draft i have for first few rounds:
1st- Alex Barron if available
1st-Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
3rd- pure raw athlete, natural skills but not developed fully
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
trade down for this version
1st-marcus spears
2nd- Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon...if available...if even in draft
2nd- chris borwn
3rd- antionio perkins
3rd- see above reference to natural athelete player

also i dont know if they're are any kickers with any potential, but brown seemed to slip off this year, quite badly. i hope he gets it back, but i would like someone to replace him w/a stronger leg.

I dont see Antonio Perkins being available in the 3rd.. and I dont see Ngata even declaring for this years draft.

Who is Chris Brown? and what about picking up Jason Brown somewhere on Day 1? This kid has such an upside. If Ngata does declare I would like to see the Texans trade down and pick him up with a late first round pick, that's assuming his knees check out okay.

We have to wait until Monday to see what underclassmen come out, but something to consider is that this years draft is shaping up as a weak draft. Whereas next year is already shaping up to be a strong draft.
