Also, there is finally some clarity on the Travis Johnson pick compensation:

Quote:
Texans pick 20th behind Steelers 18 and Falcons 19. Then they rotate each round.

Texans in each round: 1) 20. 2) 19. 3) 18. 4) 20. 5) 19. 6) 18, 7) 20. They also have San Diego's sixth-round pick.

Once again Kubiak has failed. If he would have managed his chances correctly and knew to pick tails, cause it never fails, Texans would have got to pick 19th. Typical....

FIRE KUBIAK NOW!

He probably couldn't watch the coin flip and had to turn away and bury his head in his plastic sheet that had 1) Heads and 2) Tails on it. That or he had the coin flipper attempt to throw it to another coin flipper.

I heard he was having his flooring redone, so he was unable to attend

There will be plenty of good players available at #19 and #20 so I am not worried. Between Earl Thomas, Dan Williams, Patrick Robinson, Kyle Wilson, Mike Iupati, someone who can help us win will be available.

If one of the other CB's starts shooting up the draft board and cements a round 1 grade, there's a chance that the Falcons could take him at 19 and leave us to consider other options. That one player is likely Kyle Wilson.

I don't think it's as big of a concern as others. There are a number of factors that could marginalize this small concern.

1. The Falcons also have other needs to address, namely LB.

2. There's not yet a CB expected/projected to go where we're picking, so something would have to change in that regard to make this worrisome.

3. We're assuming that Smith & Co. are targeting a CB with their first round pick. That could very well be wrong.

4. FA could change a need for either us or the Falcons (the Falcons are one of the favorites to sign Dunta).

5. Trades, both player-for-player and within the draft, could change (a) needs for either team and (b)how the draft unfolds and where players are picked.

So, the chance that Kyle Wilson (or McCoutry, or whoever) ascends the draft board to solidy a justifiable pick at 19/20 and is taken by the Falcons right ahead of us is not likely.

Kyle Wilson may end up going to the Falcons because of this, so that might make the Texans trade back a few spots for an extra 4/5th round pick. They might be able to still get Earl Thomas in the mid twenties.

Default Re: Falcons win coin flip, Texans will pick 20th

We swapped picks with the Falcons in 2007. The Texans gave them our 8th pick and we got their 10th. They selected Jamaal Anderson and we took Amobi Okoye. Officially passing on Patrick Willis and Darrelle Revis. Looks like Atlanta and Houston blew the first round of that draft.

Default Re: Falcons win coin flip, Texans will pick 20th

Back in 2004 the Falcons drafted a CB right ahead of the Texans (8th for
Falcons, 10th for Texans), and no matter what you might think of Dunta Robinson at this point, I think he's turned out a wiser/better pick than DeAngelo Hall ?
So, don't have to draft early to draft smart.

Yeah, but if you're looking to trade back in the 1st, the extra spot does add value to it. It's all good though, I trust Rick Smith and his scout crew will make the right decisions.

Why do we have to switch with the Falcons and Steelers during th draft? Why can't we just keep the #19th position throughout?

This is clearly punishment from God for:
  • McNair not firing Kubiak
  • Not franchising Dunta
  • Elective surgery on Kubiak's part in which he is taking the life of an innocent unborn sleep apnea

(And it also probably means our 20th pick will have some sort of birth defect)

No kidding. If I'm not mistaken, Adrian Peterson ended up going #9 in the middle of that right?
