The good new for the Texans, is that couple of position that many think they need are found regularly (not just in the first round either). RB and FS are often contribute early. OG/c don't have to be early picks, but ususally take a year or two. The good news at DT is this is one of the best DT drafts in quite awhile as it has impact at the top and depth available most rounds.
Yup don't set yourself up for disappointment thinking guys are routinely going to come in and be a Ryans or Cushing. Many years teams will get a heavy impact player but often it isn't the top pick and even then that doesn't mean perform at a pro-bowl level. I would add CB and OG as other positions where folks often contribute early.

I highly doubt they take another sub 210 pound running back, not early anyway.
It was tough to watch. I will disagree on the size of the RB. I just don't think this coaching staff is size oriented. They are style oriented. Chris Brown looks like an exception but he played their style in college under Gibbs. And personally I think a team would be silly to pass on a MJD because he is 208 lbs.

According to this site some really premium players may become UFA's if a new CBA is adopted. This means several pro-bowl guards may become available. They will still not be cheap but will not require picks. Obviously, this is a big IF.

They've got around 3 weeks to come to an agreement for a new CBA in 2010. Considering the fact that the two sides are still World's apart and are already talking about the possibilities of the 2011 lockout, I'd say the odds of an agreement for 2010 are zip, zero, nada....

Do you have a personal evaluation on Chris Brown? I have him in 6th round. 5'10" 202 4.47. I have only seen bits and pieces on him but he seems to be the real deal.

No fight and I apologize if you thought I was attacking you. To add info to the post immediately after yours, the Union president was quoted by the NFL leader as saying the chance of a CBA not being agreed to as a 14 on a scale of 1-10. The 2 sides are too far apart to be resolved in months let alone 3 weeks.

I was referring to the current much reviled Chris Brown. He is unusually large for a Texans/Denver RB at 6' 3" 235 lbs but I think they made that exception because he ran for Gibbs in college.

I don't know enough about prospect CB to opine.

understand your meaning & people make this mistake all the time especially when the record doesn't measure up to the sum of its parts. The only thing we set ourselves up for in the disapointment department is not becoming a legitimate playoff contender SOONER (this year) than LATER (years after next).

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't have confidence in this organization to have the mentality to run it successfully with this type of RB. Dennison hasn't excatly set the league on fire in Denver with a pounding running game? another thing that bothers me is the similarity between Broncos & Texans injury history, none of their backs can make it even one full season healthy, not to mention our own. Is this a function of ZBS? Can both OL's be the problem? Or is it the physcial make-up of the backs they aquire?

This is a prime reason when I did my first Texans mock http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68968 I took a RB in both 1st & 3rd rds. One lightening (Spiller) one thunder (Dixon). I've since elevated Ben Tate to the Texans lone selection @ RB via the draft in the 3rd rd. because he does not have the injury history, he's flourished in the SEC, excellent blocking back (to replace Brown) & is the physical specimen 5-10 215 to fit scheme & play through the contact he will surely be expoused to.

I am liking Tate a lot. I think he may be the best overall fit for the Texans due to his excelling in the passing game (blocking as well as receiving) and his downhill running style. He looked real good for the Senior Bowl.

Agreed. Auburn produces excellent NFL backs & of all the backs I've seen them produce over the past few years he is not the flashiest, or quickest he is simply the most complete & durable.

I wasn't making a personal comment of preference (although I do tend to like smaller RBs) but a comment on the Texans' philosophy. That's what counts at the end of the day.

You think Tate will be a possession type back for us and power the ball in to end zone from 6 or less yards out?

It is a function of the Texans philosophy. The Texans have not prioitized the RB position via the draft, they've gone the free agent route instead, with unsatisfactory results. They said something like "we targeted Shonn Greene & Glen Coffee but both where off the board by our pick (3rd)". My fear is that history repeats itself.

I've been on Tate's bandwagon just as long (if not longer) than anyone else here. I think he can do all the things we need in a RB.

Would love to see him or Mathews in a Texans uni.

There are a few names that might be worth a look on there. I like Johnny Jolly since he is a bit younger than most of the big names on there.

No that is not at all what he said. He said he and Kubiak agreed there was significant risk in FAs who have played their best years and teams end up overpaying for a declining player but they were searching for young players like they did with Antonio Smith.
