    How does position affect your likelihood to purchase a jersey of this year's round 1 draft pick?

    I assume the Texans do not trade out of round 1.

    Based upon the results of this poll, and as the combine approaches, I may add follow-up polls, putting names against position.

    I don't know. I thought this would be interesting.

    I'll play this game.

    I'd be most likely to purchase a Rashard Mendenhall Jersey if we were to draft him (so I chose RB). However, with that said, it's unlikely I would purchase any of their jerseys so soon- I would buy A.Johnson or D.Ryans first.

    Call me crazy, but if they draft an OT I'd buy the jersey. I'm a supporter of "the big uglies".

    Carr & Babin have taught me a lesson in regards to purchasing rookie jerseys. I'll wait until year 2, as I did with DeMeco.

    Mendenhall - even if things don't pan out - it's a cool sounding name.

    Defense wins Championships, Offense sells tickets.

    I would buy a RB jersey.

    For me, it depends on the player. Whether I think that they are the deal, whether I'm optimistic about their play, whether they offer a semi-affordable one at Academy. (I cut up the jerseys my way, so it's not like I want to spend big money on an authentic). Doesn't have much to do with the position.


    Though I don't regret the Carr jersey. It wasn't like there were many choices and it was a way to support the team. (I didn't get the Boselli jersey cuz I had concerns).

    I got a Mario and AJ jersey. Would have got a DeMeco and Dunta jersey right away had I been able to find one for Academy kinda of money.

    Babin, TJ, not so much.

    Once in a while, I will see someone in a Phillip Buchanon Texans jersey. I saw those once at an Academy. I guess they want to get their money's worth.

    I voted for CB, but tops on my list right now is a DeMeco Ryans Pro Bowl jersey...of course he'll be there again next season, but the first one is the best IMO.

    How cool would Mendenhall look on a jersey?

    I got the idea for this poll when I realized: though I am a fan of balancing BPA vs team need, I think an impact RB would spur my purchase.

    You and I think alike.

    I was the 2nd CB vote and DeMeco's ProBowl jersey is my next purchase. I have the feeling he'll be going to several, but having the first one will be cool.

    :highfive:

    I'm not a jersey buyer type person but if I did I would definitely want a RB.
