Default In the ultimate dream scenario, if the Texans were to trade up..

And both names were on the Big Board, which of the two do you most want the Texans to grab?

I've heard Peterson touted as "the best player in this draft" whereas I have not heard that about Miller at all.

Default Re: In the ultimate dream scenario, if the Texans were to trade up..

I'd say Von because we can attack the secondary in FA a bit. I really think hes going to be a 15 sack a year kind of guy that does other things well once he gets accustomed to the system. Peterson would rock too and he might be slightly cheaper to get. The next Clay Matthews or the next Rod Woodson, sign me up either way.

Considering our secondary was, by far, the worst positional situation of any team I've ever rooted for in my life in any sport.....Peterson.

I say Miller. Do whatever it takes to sign Asomougha. Sign a veteran FA safety. Unless his name is C.C.

Default Re: In the ultimate dream scenario, if the Texans were to trade up..

I voted Von Miller-we will need an actual OLB in the conversion to the 3-4.
While I do think that we have some players (Barwin specifically-if completely healthy) it would be nice to have someone who played the position.

Plus they can get a good CB in FA (when that happens) and I haven't seen any pure pass rushing OLB's available.

The last time an A&M guy went to a Houston Franchise in round 1, he became an all Pro named Ray Childress. I say go for Miller and go get Brandon Harrison in the 2nd.

Gotta agree with mussop here. While Patrick Peterson or Von Miller would definitely be nice, if the Texans somehow traded up to the #2 overall pick (though unlikely) I'd rather they select Marcell Dareus and stick him in at nose tackle.

Except that Rick Smith will be signing the CB's.

The issue is, if you are trading up to get him, odds are you don't have a second round pick.

I took Peterson.

I think Miller has bust potential that Peterson does not.

I also would prefer Dareus on the nose over either.

Default Re: In the ultimate dream scenario, if the Texans were to trade up..

I selected Patrick Peterson.

Reasoning:I think Peterson is better and a safer pick than Miller. He's a versatile DB that Wade can line up on or off the line. I still target a FA CB. I think the dropoff in talent from Peterson to the other CBs is more significant than that of the OLBs. I really like Von Miller and would love to have him but I think there's a bigger risk factor to him than Peterson. I think the drop off from him to other OLBs is less and would rather keep our draft picks and go OLB at 11 or trade down.

Patrick Peterson + FA like Ike Taylor + Kareem Jackson at CB; Glover Quin at FS is a much much improved secondary and could become a strength to our defense overnight. Use a couple of picks from whatever we have left over to move up and target an OLB that Wade likes in the late 2nd/early 3rd and I think we could have the makings of a really good looking defense.

Miller. Explosive edge rushers aren't easy to find. Not that elite corners are either. .but I think that we could find good fa db's. Plus I like a few of the third and fourth round corners.

I also believe that miller would make us better as a team. Put him on the same side as Mario and teams will have fits trying to get them blocked. And Mario would help hide some of his deficiencies against the run. Mario would take on blockers and miller could use his speed to make plays.

yup, a great passrush can turn an average secondary into a good one. a bad rash will allow a qb to make like seven reads or wait for someone to fall down
