If Cushing is a productive starter, Barwin becomes the pass rusher thats been lacking and Hill does a good job allowing Slaton to make more 3rd and 1's this year I will be very happy with our draft.

The other draft picks have great potential and may be productive in year 2-3. IMO

I hope I'm wrong and all of them do great this year and this is the best draft class ever.

I like Quinn, I think he'll be our best DB since Glenn.

I believe we mostly suited 7 on game days, but we carried 9.
Besides the regular 5, we had Salaam, White, Studdard, and Butler.

Salaam is gone.

Now we have Caldwell, Jones as main candidates for roster spots.

I'm thinking one of the 3: White, Studdard or Butler will be cut.
Butler might be the safest as swing tackle, especially now that Salaam is gone.

But who knows, another guy or two may emerge in camp.
I'm not banking on that though.

Antoine Caldwell.
Was Caldwell an emergency slong snapper for Alabama?

I like them all, just don't know if we have enough balls to throw around.
We had used the 3-TE set more than a few times before (but not last year, I don't think.)
Heck, I say put Barwin in there as well and run the spread with 5 TEs once a while and see how the other team deal with it, LOL!
Use it in the red zone, I'm serious!
Why should Kubiak the innovator be limited in his mindset???

And Duane Brown can play TE, too!

I'm old school.
Some guys may have talent but need to hone their skills at the position.
And if we have a veteran who can man the post, I would not hesitate to sit the rookie I drafted in the first round.

Sorry, 76, I know this was a typo but I giggled for a good five minutes after reading it. Lack of sleep, maybe, but it was funny as heck.

I voted Cush as most excited. With Demeco already established as a pro-bowl talent, and my hopes that Adibi grows to similar level, I'm hoping the Meathead can help elevate the Texans LB corps to the same elite status at the NFL level, that he was part of at the Collegiate level.

Like much other sentiment in this thread, I ultimately have reservations about the secondary's success this year that outweigh the front 7, but if we can stop the run without the secondary having to worry about contributing on that effort, my hopes would be the secondary can actually focus on pass coverage.
