Default Bruce Irvin

What round can he be had in??? Have heard some people saying he will slip significantly after the arrest. Great talent and not a bad guy, especially with our solid locker room.

I've seen Irvin ranked anywhere from #41 to #100. My guess would be that Irvin would have a 90% availability to the Texans 2nd round pick @ #58, a 50% chance at #76, and a 10% shot at #99 (Texans first 4th round pick).

I've mocked him to us in rd 2/3. I fully believe he is the worth the risk. What do you guys think? Is it finally time we take a talented player with a bit of a checkered past?

Honestly? No. I'd prefer to have Nick Perry or Andre Branch in the 1st or 2nd rounds. I wanted Irvin a month ago but the more I read the less I like him, to many character issues and there are plenty of other capable players.

I think it's quite possible he goes mid to late second, I think he'll be gone before our fourth.

With Irvin's "off field" issues I don't think the Texans would invest a 7th round pick on him. In other words he's off their Board.
Re Perry and Branch, I think either one could very well be the Texans top pick if available at 26 ?

I actually think that is a very good mock. Very realistic IMO.

I wasn't speaking about our pick specifically, but I can see that POV...

On the other hand, the guy basically has Von Miller athleticism. Their measureables are very similar. And it's not like he hasn't been productive in college. He has a great motor and a mean streak and attitude on the field.


The biggest thing with Irvin is his character issues. THAT's what would keep us from looking at him and THAT's what would keep him out of the end of the first round.

So San Francisco is the promise team for Bruce Irvin in the first?
Looks like it might not be the reach some think it is, or at least the Texans are not the only team high who might value Irvin

Wow, Cordy Glenn and Jonathan Martin fall out of the first in favor of two guards Silatolu and Zeitler? I just don't see that happening. SF needs a RT, not a guard, same with the Lions.

The more I think about the more i wouldn't mind Irvin. I would trade up in the second round to get Fleener, Randle, Glenn, Martin, or even Zietler(sp).

Fleener will never make it past #34 (Colts) so if you want him, you better trade up to #33.

Irvin? Meh. I think he is boom or bust for sure. I would not invest anything higher than a #3. He has serious pass rush potential. He also has potential to be off the roster this time next year.

At first I thought he would be a reach here, but I see a Von Miller minus off the field issues. He can be easily mentored with the class acts in our locker room. I wouldn't mind trading back to the early 2nd round to get him but I'm afraid a team picking after us will get him.

If it were Madden, hell yeah I'd give a 3rd. In real life? No, I wouldn't want to deal with a guy who has that big of an attitude adjustment coming.
