some of you say that AJ, Armstrong, Gaffney isnt a good line up, well AJ has great speed, Armstrong has good feet and runs great routes, and Gaffney is a good 3rd down reciever. I think our WR core would be better than this year !

Have we forgotten about Kendrick Starling?

http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/kendrick_starling

Positives: Has the speed and quick feet to suddenly get on top of the press coming off the line Can leverage, plant, transition and make sharp cuts in his patterns Changes direction well, using his size effectively to shield the ball from the defender on short-zone tosses Sits in the zone and uses his strength to compete for the ball in traffic Has the built-up speed to get downfield after the catch Flashes a sudden burst, quick spin and excellent balance heading upfield after the catch Willing blocker with an aggressive attitude, doing a fine job of searching out the linebacker when working in the second level Still developing his ball skills, but his speed and change-of-direction agility allow him to create big plays, especially when asked to return kicks.

Starling impressed me with his speed and quickness last year. But he's still somewhat raw as a receiver (at least he was in early Sept) and I don't think he's going to push anyone for a starting slot anytime soon as he's still behind Gaffney and Armstrong in the pecking order. He's a 4/5 kind of guy right now but he's a good guy to have around because he looks like he has some upside. He's shown Jason Bell gunner ability and that can make the difference between a roster spot or not.

Why gamble on Gardner or Taylor.If Carr does not have time whats it matter.
Guys from bad teams will rise above and keep playing(Dillon) or just settle.You don't want a player who settles.
You could trade for Moss but you can't get him the ball.Then what gotta find a 2nd reciever.

with the team we are trying to build I dont see us using cap money on another big receiver. we have a well above average receiving core and we are not the colts.. we dont need anything better than that because passing is not our primary strength.

We need to work on our oline.. we need to improve our pass rush.. the WRs we currently have are more than capable of winning game for us.. Andre Johnson himself could carry the weight of our entire passing game if Carr had the time to wait for him to get open.

i wouldn't give a first day pick for Gardner unless a favorable contract extension could be worked out, which is never done.

so nothing better than a 4th rounder.

If not look to sign Taylor, or go big bux with Burress.

We need a #1 TE more than we do a #2 WR.

Speaking of tight ends, who is available on the free agent market that would be an obvious upgrade over who we have right now?

And if there are none, then I'd say TE will be a lock to be drafted early.

The most obvious upgrade is Bubba Franks, and there are handful of guys who are probably upgrades, Alexander, Becth,

Bubba Franks? Can't see him being let go. I'd say trade down, and take Heath Miller in the 1st. And if you can't trade down, consider taking him anyway.

I would say that if the Texans want Heath Miller that they would have to take him at 13. Several mocks that I have seen show him actually being drafted before that point.

I agree. If you want Miller you can't trade down to get him. This draft class isn't too special.

Itula Mili would be a decent pick up, but nothing special.

Thumbs up

if you want a reciever look at the C.F.L. free agents or option year players and draft a defensive player. remember defence wins championships, look at the PATS

How bout if one of the two big-time WRs drop to 13 in the draft? Wishful thinking,but hey...anything could happen!!

Gardner....i dunno,hes not that fast and has been an underachiver so far in his career.

I'd take Plax Bizzle if we could.

Gardner hasn't lived up to being a No 1 reciever, but we already have that, he is a very solid number 2 guy.

Not many teams in the NFL have a "top #1" TE, only teams that come to mind are SD, Indy, KC, and Bal. All other teams have good or decent TE's. I think if we do take Gardner it should be our 3rd round pick that we got from the Cowboys for Henson.

I don't see anything wrong with Billy Miller. We're still waiting to see what we got out of Joppru. We need to worry about our O and D line first. If we draft TE, wait until round 3.
