Everytime I see Gabbert going that high I want to throw up in my mouth a little.

"Into" is used to connote that he is on his way and not there yet. Same with the word "growth"..as in needing more work to get there or getting there.
We will just have to agree to disagree then.

I'll agree with that. I would take Quinn over Jones in this situation.

I can't agree with that. I have Jones rated higher than Houston and Ayers, and I agree with Kiper that Jones would be a good fit. Kevin Walter doesn't deserve a roster spot unchallenged. He will be 30 next year and Jones is an upgrade over not only Walter but every other receiver on the Texans roster not named Andre Johnson.

Jones is BPA at this point in the draft and it would be a smart move for the Texans to take him. That's why Gary and Rick wont take him. LOL

I do believe that one out of Quinn, Miller, or Amukamara will be available at #11. That's because some of these QBs will be overdrafted. Root for guys like Gabbert, Newton, and Mallett to have great combines and/or workouts. Two of these guys need to come off the board in the top 10 picks.

agree about one of houstons big three being there at 11, wouldn't suprise me if all three of those qbs are gone before 11. jones would be a nice pick if those three were off the board, kevin in the slot might work with jones and aj outside

But if Quinn, Miller, or Amukamara are not there who are you taking?

If those guys are gone, then a QB has to still be on the board. Minnesota would be poised to take that QB @12, so anyone wanting QB would look at the Texans pick @11.

If Jones is there, that pick could be valuable. The Pats have to be desperate for a playmaking WR and have the ammo to move up. In fact, moving all the way down to #28 and picking up the first pick in the 2nd round @33 would be a fair trade. Having 3 picks between 28 and 42 would help Wade Phillips fill holes that the 3-4 conversion will create.

If none of those scenarios materialize, I would select Justin Houston from Georgia. Houston doesn't have the body of work that Miller has, but his game may translate better to the NFL. I think Houston ends up going much higher than the internet mockers are currently suggesting (late 1st/early 2nd).

Great news!

Guarantees Texans will NOT be drafting JJ.

Kiper is the best draft anti-barometer on the planet!

I'm on this wagon. I'm hearing too many great things about this dude. I'm thinking with FA being after the draft, we can bolster positions with good players. Andre's been hurt two seasons in a row. I'm not expecting him to tough it out anymore, I'm also not liking KW these days, Jacoby is just streaky, and then there's nothing after that. If a stud WR is available that can add to our offense, and no top CB or OLB is still available, I say pull the trigger and get this guy!

I'm thinking after his combine workout, he's going top 7. We won't have a chance to get him.

Good news, if he's going 7, that drops several defensive players down one slot. Figure at least one QB goes in the top 10 & that will drop 2 top ten defensive talents right in our laps.
