Default So where do we draft this year?

Impact safety, DT, and CB is still on the list, huh?

Doesn't matter. ESPN and NFL Network will go to a commercial during that part of the draft.

OH...sorry, misunderstood your question. Yes, everything that was on the list last year still is, except for RB.

Default Re: So where do we draft this year?

I envision us losing the next 5 games at least and am 50-50 on the last 2 that just won't matter by then. I see us drafting in the 12-14 range and should get at least one really good pick, hopefully Brandon Harris-CB or Prince Amukamara-CB. I also envision a coaching change and it'll be really hard to predict the draft until we see who the new head coach is.

Default Re: So where do we draft this year?

I am thinking the Texans finish with a 6-10 or 7-9 record. I predict win against Denver/Jags and possibly 1 of the Titan games.


At 6-10 we likely pick between 8/9-12
At 7-9 we likely pick between 10/11-14

I hate to bring this up but I'm concerned about Demeco's injury and him coming back. I feel like Diles is the only player we've had that has come back from a serious injury and still be a good player. In this sense, if Demeco isn't the same I say we just promote him to Defensive Coordinator.


Impact game-changing Safety is highest on my list. I think this would do wonders to our secondary. He's HAS to be smart and have good instincts and ballskills... this translates into making plays. Our safeties are awful. Pollard can't catch a cold and Wilson doesn't know what a cold even looks like. Our new impact safety will REALLY help out our CBs too. I feel our safety play has hurt this team more than our CB play.

Secondly, we still need a good DT and CB from the draft.

Default Re: So where do we draft this year?

I say we draft all 7 rounds on offense. Would Frank Bush do any worse with all free agent vets?

Lets just get as good on offense as we can. Work on scoring more than 3 points in the first half, and just assume the defense is going to give up 30 points a game.

If Kubiak is the coach, I do not expect a corner to be drafted high or probably a free safety either. I have Nick Fairly as first round and a CB in second as that position is deeper imo than DT. We should still get a decent COVER CB. Unfortunately, I don't see any FS in first three rounds although my mock partners Beer Lover and Rmartin 65 are trying to convince me Peterson from LSU has more upside at that position than @ CB.

Wolf, I'm thinking you have the draft spot targeted.

Default Re: So where do we draft this year?

this is gonna sound harsh but this actually helps Texan franchise from finishing building out its base player foundation. We are more than one or two players away from a Championship team. They do need to hit the bulls-eye with this next offseason moves both in free agency & the draft, otherwise change will happen. My prediction of 8-8 is still attainable with difficulty of schedule factored in should put Texans at bottom of .500 pile #16-#18.

I think they're right, Peterson's size will work against him in the NFL. His backpedal isn't very good and his size will work against him in his change of direction. He does have good speed and a sense for the ball which should work great for him as a FS but quick agile WR's will tear him up in the NFL as a CB. I like Prince Amukamara and Brandon Harris amongst CB's in the 1st round.

As of right now we pick at 14, But that is likely to go down.

I can see us drafting as high as 8. If that occurred would you go DT Nick Fairley who is having a monstrous year for Auburn, FS Patrick Peterson corner speed at FS position that could make our CBs instantly better or a true CB like Amukamara or Brandon Harris? Might make an interesting thread as nothing else is going on.

Keep in mind that in second round you could see CB Jimmy Smith, DT Drake Nevis or FS Rahim Moore or Deandre McDaniel.

It would be awfully hard to pass on Fairley

Really crappy teams draft BPA. Really good teams draft BPA. Average teams will try to fill a hole or two.

We are a really crappy team that needs to draft the best defensive player available. We are thin everywhere, including linebacker.

Would you agree Fairley would be the BPA if he's on the board?

Likewise. I really got into following everyone's mocks last year and am looking forward to it this year as well. The way things are going now, I feel like it's an appropriate time to start looking ahead instead of waiting until February.
