I'm gonna go with Courtney Upshaw. I think he's gonna be the guy that falls and the value at 26 for him would be too good to pass up IMO.

3 Cone Drill: 6.70 vs 6.85

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.
That's pretty impressive...I'm not a draft guru so i have no clue who this guy is. Do his measurables match his game tape? If wade is eyeing this guy to be Demarcus Ware 2.0.......i'm all for that.

There was a previous tweet from Wade that stated when they get to within six picks of the Texans position, they'll start discussing the 6 remaining players they like best - knowing with certainty that at least one of them will still be there when they pick.

Edit: Wade's a pretty good follow on twitter for anyone who's interested in that type of thing.

Arrested this past March the weekend after his pro day (March 16) for destruction of property and disorderly conduct after allegedly breaking a sign at a Jimmy John's sandwich shop in Morgantown. Ruled academically ineligible sophomore year of high school. Dropped out of school and struggled with off-the-field issues. Spent two years out of football and briefly spent time in juvenile detention center before earning GED in 2007. Grew up in Georgia in a rough neighborhood. Scouts will need to do some investigating on background. Attempted to walk on at Butler Community College in Kansas but didn't make the team and later enrolled at Mt San Antonio Community College. Played safety for one year them moved to defensive end to take advantage of ability to get to quarterback. De-committed from Tennessee and then Arizona State before settling on West Virginia. Some slight concerns about his ability to interpret and take coaching. Named team's rookie of the year in 2010.

I think the same thing. I keep hearing people downplay his measureables, so I can see him easily sliding and he would fit perfectly in this defense with Barwin and Reed.

I'm quoting myself because I made these comments about Mercilous. I'm pretty shocked that he fell that far. Our D is going to be nasty next year.

Now let's get some toys for Matt and the gang!
