I don't think a rookie LT is the answer to the o-line woes. If it's determined that Wand can't do the job at LT, free agency is the only option that makes sense.

the key to our offensive line woes is that Todd Wade has been hurt the last couple of weeks & this throws everyone out of synch/position. They were just getting used to working together as a unit & seemed to be making good progress.

since this is a "what do we need to improve thread regarding drafting" I'll throw in my opinion about the offensive line development from a scouting perspective. Ben Wilkerson LSU is an outstanding center prospect. He got hurt recently and is out for the season I believe (ACL) Texans I'm sure would take a chance on him if is still available in the 3rd round. However he would not be a factor next year due to the severity of his injury, but that would give him time to develop behind McKinney & add another piece to the puzzle long term.

i wouldn't take that post to seriously because they didn't even get ben wilkerson's name right. but i would love getting him, he knows how to play the game, to bad the rest of the o-line doesn't play like him. also he is a nice guy.

oops my bad, I know its Ben don't know what I was thinking. The latest updated draft order now has the Texans selecting 15th overall after losing two in row. Here I go again

1st round: Thomas Davis, SS Georgia- Shawn Taylor without the baggage. Playmaker, fear factor intimidator, solidifies the secondary moving Coleman back to corner & Glen Earl to free safety.

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/pla...omasdavis.html

2nd round: Travis Johnson, DT FSU character issues, may still be on the board when the Texans select in the 2nd round. Has speed, size & talent of Marcus Spears a great value pick here that fills a need for the Texans.

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/pla...isjohnson.html

3rd round: Ben Wilkerson, C LSU- Probable future pro bowl NFL center, status injured but the Texans know a thing or two about recovery. If not injured might of been a 1st round pick & 1st or 2nd Center taken in the draft.

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/pla...wilkerson.html

3rd round: Marcus Lawrence, ILB So Carolina- reunited with Dunta Robinson. This may change as the draft gets closer but Marcus could fill the need as a back-up ILB his first year eventually winning out a starting position in a couple of years to go along with Babin & Peek (OLB'S).

Has Marcus Spears been mentioned? I was at the LSU-Alabama game this past Saturday and the defensive end Spears from LSU is damn good.

If Pollack is off the board before we pick, then with pick 3b/4 I like Roth from Iowa. The rotation of Peek/Roth @ ROLB would be fun to watch. Adell could be a fine 7th rounder. Maybe that should be our new tradition: last pick/last round=RedRaider

yeah i was at the game too and he tore it up, actually he has stepped it up in the last few games. in the troy game he had two sacks and four or five tackles for a loss. i mentioned him and a few others have, i think he would be a great fit at the end position

I think that we need a speed/impact middle linebacker to complement Jamie Sharper. I say we take Ahmad Brooks, ILB Virginia. young and very athletic.

FROM NFLDRAFTCOUNDOWN.COM
Great size...Very good speed...Amazing athlete who even saw time as a kick returner...Versatile...Could be an OLB or MLB at the pro level and even saw some time at defensive end in passing situations...Has everything you look for physically with an unlimited upside.

If this guy is athletic enough to return kicks, rush the passer from the DE position on passing situations, and play either LB position, WHY not draft this guy? He's also very young. A true sophmore, after a transfer from a millitary academy. Sounds too good to pass up. do it! do it!

brooks is good but i don't see him coming out this year, maybe i'm wrong. but if he did it wouldn't suprise me because of the weak mlb class. i would like to look at lance mitchell in the second round, hw would add a fast tackling machine. it all depends on what teams think about his knee.

I dont have a problem with going heavy Defense, but I think we should use the first pick on a skill player on offense. RB. Then you can spend 3-4 picks on D. And still get some nice prospects. And a LB, via free agency.
