DJ...Don't think, just do it...

That Miami GM must've been desperate to move down if you didn't even have to give up a 2nd rounder...

lol you would have to give up more than just the 13 and what was it the 73rd pick. THeir is a rating that usually go by.

#2= 2600 ratings

#13= 1150
#47= 430
#73= 225
#78= 200

are you seeing where i am going with this.

If u got a steal like that I say it's a no brainer that you go with DJ. He'd be a great addition to the defense.

I think Im going to go with DJ.....although I want a top tier RB, and CB....its tough @ #2

I also picked up a late 2nd rounder for Jamie Sharper....

So my picks are:
#2 Overall
Texans 2nd Rounder
#63 Overall
#78 Overall

It is only a 3 round mock so I figure with 3 picks in the 1st 2 rounds I should be ok. Any thoughts on what my 2nd's and 3rd should be?

Baas?
Spencer?
a RB?
CB?
WR???

You answered your own question. With the 7 players you aren't sure who to chose from, you can trade down with Arizona - who's in discussion with Cleveland to move up to #3 and get an RB if you buy the rumors. Get back your 3rd rounder (and even upgrade it a bit) from AZ and you still have a great shot at DJ at #8. Even if you don't get him, one or more of the players you can't choose between have to be there, even in a worst case scenario, and you've still improved your 3rd rounder by several picks vs. when you were at #13.

P.S. To all you value chart folks, I said third rounder because it guarantees AZ trades with you over Cleveland. Yes, second would obviously be a more desirable deal.

I'd be shocked if Baas made it to #47. Less shocked if NT Luis Castillo was there, who'd be a great pick. Demarcus Ware, Darryl Blackstock or Matt Roth might slide that low, and they're all first round talent at a need position. There's probably still a CB that would be first round any other year available at #47, too. Spencer ... if you can get him at #63 he's good value at a big need position. NT CJ Moseley at #63 would be another steal if you didn't get Castillo. RB Fason will be gone by #63, but if he's not, you have to take him on principle At #78, well, it's hard to say how the chips will fall, but a couple of good picks that might slide to that range would be TE Kevin Everett, RB Morency, DE Bill Swancutt. Yes, I know all these guys should be second rounders - that's why they're great picks mid-third.

#63 Overall - Eric Shelton, RB, Louisville / Logan Mankins, OG, Fresno St.
#78 Overall - Roscoe Parrish, WR, Miami (FL) / Matt Jones, WR-TE, Arkansas

Braylon Edwards would be a awesome pick for the Texans, talk about match-up problems along with AJ this would be the best WR duo in the entire NFL

I like the idea of trading up with our 1st and 3rd and then trading back down for more picks. I never really thought about this but if there were a time you could do this it would be this year. It probably won't cost as much to move up this year and then you could hope to catch somebody desperate to give up more than they should. If not it didn't cost too much to get a big impact guy.

Please dont talk about trading up. It doesnt make much sense to me. We need too much depth at too many positions. To give up a 3rd is almost unspeakable. I think through the top 4 rounds you can find quality depth i wouldnt doubt we can get a sleeper in the 5th. I pray everynight we trade down and get more picks through the 1st 4 rounds.
