Default [CHRONIC] Smith signing means Texans might lean toward OLB in draft

http://blogs.chron.com/nfl/2009/02/s...exans_mig.html

Smith didn't cost a lot, either. His five-year deal is worth $35 million, but the only guarantee is his $12.5 million signing bonus. Getting Smith gives them flexibility on draft day. I feel stronger than ever that they're going to select an OLB in the first round, and they might trade down to do it. I also think they'll draft another defensive end after the first round, perhaps in the second.




The rest is in the link....

Have we drafted a LB in the first round before?

I agree. OLB is written on the wall. I hope they trade down to do it.

If we were to stay at 15..it looks like Cushing...If we can trade down, maybe a good shot at Mathews...the way it all looks Pre Draft.

If Kubes want to move Ryans outside the steal of the draft is Franz Joseph.

Joseph may be able to play the Sam & should be available in the 3-4 rd.

Is this written by the same John McClain that said we were definitely not looking at any other QB's besides Ramsey no later than yesterday?

I'm sure we're looking at BPA on the defense and probably a trade down. I doubt that they have their hearts set on one guy right now.

Default Smith signing. How or does it affect our draft choice in the first round?

Will we still focus on a first round pass rusher? Will we settle for a situational pass rusher? I think it was a solid selection, Smith can play DT or DE. He is not the speed guy we would covet.

I don't think so. I figure that the Texans were looking at BPA already, and this really doesn't do anything to that. I don't believe that it will rule out a pass rusher if they believe the right one is available at 15.

I agree we still need that 3rd pass rush specialist.

This might even allow the Texans to move down & take a chance on Michael Johnson. I read one write-up that said he has the potential of being like Peppers. I'm not real sure about his work ethic, but the talent sure is there.

I remember being high on Justin Tuck when he came out, but he dropped all the way to the 3rd round & was taken right after we selected Vernand Morency. How'd you like to re-do that pick?

It took him 2 years to develop, but he's now a monster DE & he's only 25 years old. If the coaches get a good feeling about MJ, I'd be perfectly happy taking a chance on the future of this organization.

Oh, now I can sign up for this idea if he makes it that far.

I think he goes in round 2, though.

If Cushing gets taken before 15 I wonder if we can afford to trade down? I am also curious to see what kind of gap there is between these two when draft day finally rolls around. Right now I agree with your statement and I would hope that Cushing is there so we don't have to gamble that other teams grab them both following a trade down but the closer we get the less outrageous, at least to me, it would be to just take whichever one is still on the board when we pick.
