Kareem Jackson - a recurring nightmare.

Seriously, Alshon Jeffrey, and he reports to camp weighing 250.

Uhhh...Jeffrey would piss me off.

Can't believe scouts actually fell for his pro day ploy and have moved him back up draft boards. A guy with a playing weight of 230+ runs the 40 at 213 lbs to impress scouts. What does he run when he puts that weight back on hmm?

I don't think he will make it that far, but if he does I would trade out and get something from a team who needs a receiving TE ... we don't.
No one drafts TE's because of their blocking ability anymore. The Patriots drafted two receiving TE's in 2010. Seems to have worked out pretty well for them.

Considering OD's injury history, size of contract, age and the fact that his backup has had one catch in his career, I would say TE is defiantly a need.

I just hope we don't reach for a WR with better talent like Fleener available. Take the BPA regardless of position except for the obvious.

The breasts under his chest pads make it likely that he's been playing with some "gym candy" (without ever seeing a gym) or fooling around with funny cigarettes (and inhaling).

If Jeffrey is there when we pick its a no brainer. He comes here and is automatically the #2 WR.

ANY RB or QB in the first round would be a disaster.

actually, the more I think about it, we should parley our first round pick into extra later picks. We'll have to get really lucky for one of the top WRs or OLBs to be around @ #26. No OL guy that can start will be left there either. No other position pick that late has a legit chance to come in and start. And I don't care for the idea of drafting backups with our #1 pick.

McNair has a flashback and orders Smith to draft Boselli.

Any Rick Smith-generated pick of a defensive back. His history of selecting DBs has been absolutely horrid.

So what...?

His playing weight has always been around 230. All that tells me is he wasn't confident about his speed at that weight (hence shedding weight quickly for the combine, but not working out) and then focusing on running fast at his pro day.

There is literally no reason to put any stock in what he did at his pro day unless he is committing to play at that weight at the next level.

Man that is ridiculous!! there are D-lineman in better shape than this guy! hell JJ Watt looks better than him and hes 6'6 290 etc.. If im his college coach im not letting him get on the practice field looking like he just left Golden Corral after about 3 hrs of eating non stop... and he is supposed to be a "skill guy"? IF we are going offense and that is set in stone, Fleener probably wouldnt be a bad pick after all but ive been watching a lot of games on STEPHEN HILL and he really does look like he has a lot of upside. his team really just wanted to utilize his speed more by running the reverse etc.. but when thrown too the guy has good hands...

I'm always nervous about the FO drafting someone in the 1st rd. I did agree & like the Watt pick! It's just when this FO becomes cute is what scares me, ala Kareem "fighting chicken" Jackson! And don't even bother to think what is the best pick for the team, bcuz they won't pick that player! lol!

Default Re: Texans Nightmare Pick

Smith and Kubiak's drafting overall has been pretty decent I'm not sure why some of you are acting like their the next Matt Millen. Even as bad as Kareem Jackson is perceived by some of you, he's certainly no Vernon Gholston or Jason Smith or what have you. I think some of you are forgetting just how awful Charley Casserly was at the draft game all of a sudden.

I'm not saying either of these guys are Ozzie Newsome or whatever, but come on, the guy who said Rick Smith's DB drafting history was horrible is full of it. Glover Quin in the 4th, Brice McCain in the 6th, Troy Nolan in the 7th is pretty much the opposite of horrible. And Kubiak's offensive picks have not been bad outside of Jacoby Jones, and even then, he's certainly not the most offensive 3rd rounder anybody has ever seen my lord. John freaking Beck was picked 40th overall by the Dolphins. JOHN BECK. Ted Ginn went like 9th overall. TED GINN.

Kubiak as a gameday coach and Rick Smith as a cap manager? Yeah, not that great. But these guys do a decent job in the draft, which gets our hopes up, which are usually dashed by about week 12, which makes us angry, repeat.

Hell, the Texans are probably a top 5 draft team when you actually look at each team's draft.

Compare any Colts, Titans, or Jaguars draft from recent years and it's not even close.
