Default The Choice

I think that we are going to be left with decided to take Alex Baron or Troy Williamson in the first round. It seems most mocks have them both available at that time.

If i were in charge i'd go with Williamson, there is a chance to get Baas in the second round and he is probably a more sure thing than Baron, and could replace our center in a year or so. We could probably use one of our 3rd rounders to trade up to the early second round to be sure to get Baas.

Exactly what I would do if that situation presented itself to Texans and I had to decide.

If given the choice between Williamson and Barron, Williamson is the choice 100 times out of 100 opportunities...Barron has Stockar McDougle written all over him...

Williamson without question. Wand will be more productive than Barron this year and there's at least two franchise caliber LTs in next year's draft class who would be better than him from that point on. If Wand doesn't develop, perhaps we look at trading up for one of them.

Now, Carlos Rogers or Williamson ... there's a tough one.

That sounds good to me. I love the idea of Baas in the 2nd we really need a center. two thumbs up!

I agree & I heard Casserly could be interested in trading a 3rd this year for a second next year. I so, that pick or our own #2 could be packaged to trade up for OLine help.
