WalterFootball.com updated their pick for the Texans at #26 to Bruce Irvin, DE/OLB, West Virginia.

This is what he said about the pick:

Quote:
Surprise! Bruce Irvin in the first round? You might be thinking about e-mailing Woody Paige to tell him that he's right about me being a buffoon, but let me explain first. Michael Lombardi reported that some team flew Irvin to their facility in a helicopter and told him he'd be their first-round pick. I have some reason to believe that the Texans will pick Irvin here based on some other things I've heard today, so I guess I'm taking the bait.

What I do know for certain, per trusted sources, is that this pick will not be used on a receiver. It'll be the top rush linebacker or right tackle available on Houston's board.
I also find the receiver comment quite interesting.

I just don't trust those "trusted sources". LOL

The Texans will pick someone that fits into the team BOTH professionally and personally. You know they use both those criteria. I'll bet if a really hot reciever falls and that guy is a "nice guy" and a hell of an athelitic, they'll take him.

I'd be thrilled with a Bruce Irvin pick up. Instant impact player to the defense.

Coby Fleener.

If not (kind of a long list) : Bruce Irvin, Shea McClellin, Whitney Mercilus, Nick Perry, Cordy Glenn or Jonathan Martin.

I read that Bruce Irvin ran the 3-cone faster than any DL at the combine this year. Food for thought.

If anything screams 'Houston Texans,' it's such a flamboyant and self-important act as flying someone to the facility in a helicopter for an interview.

If we take Irvin over McClellin, I'll be pissed... I really hope Shea is there at 26, otherwise we should trade back.

Sadly, i think they'll feel the WR class is too deep for them to take 1 in the 1st unless somehow Floyd falls to us; they'll go WR in the 2nd though. i also don't know if they're convinced they'll be able to pay Barwin next year if he has a good year & if they're totally convinced about Reed...plus we need the depth at olb as you can never have too many pass rushers so.............

I seldom ever get a pick right, so those are probably not going to happen...lol.

Who I want: Fleener.

He's not an OD type of TE. This guy will create physical mismatches at the TE spot. We need someone who can step up with Dressen's departure and IMO Fleener can do that and more. He out produced BOTH our TE's last year snagging 11 TDs. I think he's easily the most immediate impact player available at this spot.

Who I am betting they they take:

Stephen Hill.

For better or worse this staff is all in on Jacoby Jones. He's going to be here next year. Book it. Hill has all the physical measurables to develop into a #1 receiver. They'll give him the year to develop and if he turns into an impact player as a rookie, I am willing to be its icing on the cake for this staff.

One of the FEW times I buy the local ragsheet is the day after draft day! They'll analyze all the TEXAN draft picks and I'll become acquainted with our new Texans!! Don't really matter to me who they are!!

Pretty much what I do as well. I also enjoy the youtube videos that get posted about each pick so I can see them in action and start getting excited about the upcoming season!

I read that too.

Also (Irvin v D. Ware)

40 Time: 4.50 vs 4.56
20 Yrd Shuttle 4.03 vs 4.07
3 Cone Drill: 6.70 vs 6.85
broad jump: 10'03" vs 10'02"

Ware tested at 6'4 and 251

Irvin tested at 6'3 and 245

I could see Wade pulling some rope to get his D Ware in a Texans uni.

I just hope he wears #57 if we pick him.

I won't cry if Irvin is the guy.

Yep, McClellin pick screams Texans. I'm OK with Irvin but would take Hill,Martin,McClellin,Fleener in that order ahead of Irvin.
