I prefer drafting into depth, and with the number of picks we have a good draft can upgrade us at many positions.

I'd like to see us get better up the middle on D -- S, ILB, NT and add a top WR prospect and deepen our OL.

Underwear Olympics alone, there's some speed out there.
There is an absolute TON of speed, unfortunately there isn't as much size as you'd hope throughout the class. I think one of the underrated parts of this class on this board is how athletic a lot of the OT's are. There's a couple of guys here that the Texans should take long looks at to see if they could be an immediate upgrade at RT.

just throwing this out there because I see Kyle Long as a premier LG but how do you think he would fare as possible swing tackle option for Texans, especially RT?

Im pretty sure Kyle Long is being projected as a RT. He looked like he was in good shape & possibly had room to bulk up despite weighing in at 313lbs. Plus he ran real well for being that big. I think he would fit real well in the ZBS. I also like Schwenke out of Cal to play G/C. He too fit the ZBS size & mobility & held hid own at the Senior Bowl against the likes of Jenkins.

I know that when Kyle Long was at FSU on a baseball scholarship, he really screwed the pooch with the coaches. Not sure exactly what transpired, but it wasn't good.

He's definitely got the size and mobility that the Texans have desired from their OT's in the past. I think his last name is going to end up getting him a higher draft spot than what he would've gotten if he was the son of some joe schmoe, but he's certainly a guy to look at if he's available at the Texans 2nd or 3rd round picks.

Jeff Baca is also a guy I think the Texans may look at as a backup or swing tackle if he's there in the middle or later rounds. (Yes I know he's listed as a Guard on a lot of the scouting sites, but he's got a lot of the qualities the Texans look for in a Tackle).

Terron Armstead might be a guy who has shot up too high on other draft boards, but if he's available after the first you got to look at him as well.

Yes, he is starting to look much less like a first round lock than what was thought before ND played 'Bama.

I'm glad to see D. Hopkins getting some love. So far, he's my guy for the Texans.

I'm not if this was that huge of a surprise. Mayock predicted a 4.75, but the other commentators predicted under then that but they thought it would be close to 4.75. I kinda think Minter getting 4.8 was just as ugly. Demontre Moore was HIGHLY OVERRATED. A 4.9 40 to go along with only 12 reps of 225lbs, that's horrible to say the least.

I know this post wasn't directed at me, but I really like Long though he will probably be gone be #54.

I've got my eye on 2 OT's in the 3rd rd. Fragel and Quessenberry are both tough athletic RT's who would be perfect fits in the ZBS.
