Default Who do you think the Texans will select in the first round?

With the 2010 Draft less than one week away, I just wanted to poll the forum and see who everyone thinks the Texans will draft in the first round this year.

I've listed players that most "draft gurus" generally see who the Texans will pick that could be available at the #20 spot. If you think the Texans will trade up or down and select a player not on this list, then choose Other and specify who you think they will select.

I love Thomas at 20. I do think a team will take him way too high but I think he represents a lot of value at that particular slot.

I voted other. The first three will be gone, the last three aren't good value.

Thomas' pro day IMO sealed him going high. If he was there at 20 they need to jump up to the podium.

I don't think he'll be there, so I voted for Wilson who should be there. We need help on the back end of this defense in a bad way.

There are so many good players in this years draft that I can actually see Wilson and Mathews being available.

Ive used the ESPN.com draft machine a few times and each time Wilson and Mathews are still on the board.

I picked Wilson by the way. The Texans strike me as a team who will want to replace Dunta right off the bat with the best corner on the board. Then take a strike at RB in the 2nd or 3rd.

Default Re: Who do you think the Texans will select in the first round?

Is this the same as a "who do you want the Texans to draft" poll? Or should I start one?


I know the Texans are going to draft someone off our radar, & I'd like to get somewhat of a consensus so I can judge what kind of atmosphere to expect come Thursday.

I say Wilson but Thomas gone. I like McCourty in trade down scenario and if he is gone could see FS Nate Allen if the trade is far enough down. A shut down CB like I think Wilson can be makes your safeties look much better. I have us taking RB in 2nd.

On our current roster Slaton is busted-up from 2009 injuries and recovering from surgery on his neck during the offseason and Foster had injury problems during his college career and another 2009 rookie, Jeremy Johnson, spent his rookie season on IR for injuries. Is that a hint for anybody ?
Running backs just get busted on a regulr basis and both Spiller & Mathews have extensve injury historys in their college careers.
Use one or both of our 6-rounders and the seventh rounder on running backs
and save the top Draft picks for more valuable positions.

Spiller only missed one game in 4 years of college.

I don't know why everyone wants Spiller. He's a small back that is not suited for full time play. That's just not good value in the first round.

I agree with you that CJ should not come to Houston, but you cannot lump all smaller backs together.

Chris Johnson - 5'11" 200lbs
CJ Spiller - 5'11" 196lbs
DeAngelo Williams 5'9" 216lbs

I think Spiller would be great for a team like the 49ers who already have a larger back.

Default Re: Who do you think the Texans will select in the first round?

I'm not a fan of drafting Spiller but he is a play maker. When I look at how MJD always gets cheap yards against us and how alot of it is because we don't know if he has the ball until after he's outside the tackles or past the center and guard, I think of what Spiller could do for our play action pass plays. With a guy like Spiller if you don't realize he has the ball until he's past the line, it might be too late and he could already be in the endzone.

I personally don't have him ranked high on my favorite players to draft list but I can't really get mad if he falls to us and we pick him. Dude played a game with a broken toe once and still had like 200 yards total offense.

There's really only 3 DBs that I'd spend a first on - Earl Thomas, Kyle Wilson, Joe Haden, and maybe Nate Allen. So there's going to be plenty of good DB value in rounds 2 and 3. Same can be said for RBs too though so I think either way they go would be good.
