    Texans did respectful w/Cushing @ #6.

    Interesting they have Wells 4 Texans @ #15....:rake:

    reviewing later rounds I couldn't help but notice after Greene #65 & Coffee #74 (both reportedly would have been considered by Texans if still available) there wasn't another RB taken until 11th selection of the 4th rd. (Mike Goodson, Texas A&M). Then again not til near end of 4th rd. interesting.

    I have a feeling that the Lions would pick Cushing. Lions fans are always complaing on Sirius NFL radio about how they don't have that one playmaker on defense. While Orakpo will probably have a great career, he is not the playmaker that Cushing is and will be. Cushing will create more havoc on offenses that Orakpo will. But that's just my opinion.

    If I were Detroit, I think I'd go after Michael Oher. They've invested heavily in the starting QB, now its time to protect him. A few years ago they drafted Gosder Cherilus out of Boston to be the LT, but it hasn't worked out well for them and the current LT, Jeff Backus, is overmatched. Matthew Stafford ended the season on the IR with shoulder and knee problems.

    In the second round, I'd be looking for a running back. QB's best friend is a good running game.

    How the hell would Clay Mathews go ahead of Brian Cushing? Makes no sense. Also I'd say no to Beanie Wells, give me B.J. Raji.

    Did you watch Mathews att all this year? I dont think you could say one is better than the other.

    I agree Matthews is the 3-4 version of Cushing

    If I were Detroit I would go with Matthew Stafford because Daunte Cullpeper can't get it done and he is past his prime IMO. I would draft Stafford #1 and then Michael Oher at #20.

    In the second round instead of Louis Delmas, I would have gone with James Laurenitis to complete there linebacking corps and put Larry Foote as OLB along with Julian Peterson.

    I agree with that. A lot of folks said that Manalau (sp?) the third one was going to have trouble in space. And there was a bunch of folks on the board who wanted Manalau over both Cushing and Mathews. Remember that ? He got hurt so not a fair comparison yet. But from my tree we really dodged a bullet on that one. What I know for a fact is that i can not post when we send five or six no one gets there any more. What I also found pretty profound is the way Capers moved up to get Mathews. Just like Jason Babins I thought. No secret now who was the artist on the Babins move up. That was Caper's baby all the way. Casserly was just carrying the water.

    Yes I did see Mathews a couple times this year and he's very good but not better than the Defensive Rookie of the Year especially in the same OLB position.

    Cleveland runs a 3-4, the Bengals run a 4-3. That's why Mathews goes ahead of Cush in this draft redux.

    What I get out of this is someone else thought Texans needed a power back. ALso, the wait and get a back in later rounds did not happen. So let's do the same thing again this draft...

    If you are looking at 2011 maybe. If you mean 2010 better than 2009, I probably disagree.
