    I don't know if there has been a thread posted about this yet, but I was wondering what everyone's opinion was on who we are going to pick up wit our first pick this year. I've been reading that they will pick Von Miller from A&M. Any thoughts or concerns or other picks we should get. I think we should try and trade up to pick Fairly because he looked real good during the BCS game. I think he could be our Suh and look at what Suh did for the Lions this year, he was a beast.

    Fairley is a monster but he's being considered to go #1 overall and at the worst top 3.

    To get him would be very costly.

    Von Miller would be great for the new 3-4 defense because his speed off the edge is elite and his upside could be Ware or the steroid version of Merriman.

    Welcome to the board.

    There is a whole forum filled with draft talk....Texans fans usually start migrating there about week 12 of the regular season.

    I would prefer Robert Quinn over Miller.

    Miller could still be there. My fear is that he just gets lit up at the point of attack and he gets stuck in the trash at the line in pursuit. Great pass rusher though.

    Fairley is no Suh.

    Suh is one of a kind.
