    I think this is ok to post in this section

    This is a decent write up on the Texans needs and draft possibilities. I'm not sure I agree with his stance on our RB situation, but you never know.

    The write up covers a lot, so I only quoted a couple positions I'd like addressed in the first couple days.

    I agree with the rankings of the wide recievers.

    Cyprien is borderline 1st rounder.

    I don't think Arthur Brown will be there for us in 2nd, may be ahead of Minter.

    Wondering if Fluker is overrated -- is he a hard worker?

    Long's whole story puzzles me. He'll turn 25.

    Menelik Watson is getting some 1st round love.

    Winters did 9 reps on the bench -- needs to fix that.

    He'll be gonzo.

    I really like the way TSV builds these lists for us. :clap:

    I would not have a problem if we took Swope in the 2nd. I see him as a 80+ reception guy by year two.

    You know kubiak has to be creaming his pants over this guy. White, from A&M, fast and has good size. We will probably draft him in the first round.

    There are plenty of guys that fit that profile, but where I felt he created separation on an every play basis, was that he was mentally, and most often physically, tougher than anyone defending him.

    Why would Kubiak care that Swope is white? And the Texans have drafted only one Aggie since Kubiak took over in 2006 (Bullock in 2012).

    I wouldn't have a problem with them getting Swope in the 2nd either but I'm not sure he will be there that late. After that 4.34 forty at the Combine, he's climbing up the draft boards. What I like about him, besides his speed, is his toughness. Saw this article in the chron this morning about him: http://www.chron.com/sports/aggies/...azzles-NFL-scouts-with-4-34-speed-4319023.php Probably his biggest drawback or concern is his hand size (8 1/2"). It was one of the smallest at the Combine. Doesn't seem to have hurt him during his college playing days though. He didn't have a reputation for drops or fumbles.

    I'd think Gary's wife will be disappointed to hear this. :truck:

    I was more impressed by Woods & Hamilton but, you know, as football players.

    It would depend on who they selected & passed on in the first.

    If we were to have traded out of the first & managed 3 second round picks, I wouldn't mind that at all.

    I would love to see us trade out of the first, but I think our haul would be a 2 and a 4 (if the 2 is top 10) or a 2 and a 3 (if the 2 is mid round). There are so many good WRs in the draft, and I'm not sure there's a huge difference between the top 10 guys this year.

    The intriguing this about Swope is his blocking ability (a big plus for our O) and his ability to run after the catch. Now maybe some of those throws that are a yard or 2 short of the first down marker will turn into actual first downs

    Right. We would most likely get a 2nd & a 4th. We would have to package that 4th with something else to acquire another 2nd. That would be three 2nd round picks if you include our original 2nd.

    I don't think anyone is going to give us two 2nds for our 1st.

    Speaking of hand size .... Im a big dude , 6'3" 235 with catchers mitts for hands .... My 14 year old son is ~5'6' 100lbs soaking wet and his hands are bigger than mine .... and my shoes are too small for him.

    The reason Brown did not participate in the combine is not because he has gained weight, but because he has a shoulder injury, the same injury which kept him from participating in the Senior Bowl. No information on the injury has been released other than an MRI has shown a "concerning injury". Teams which had their eye on Brown are worried and looking toward Kansas State's pro day for answers on his condition.

    The Crazy thing is I said last year I would've drafted Swope in the 3rd round if he came out early. That's how high I was on him after his Junior year. I've seen people comment on how he doesn't play as fast as his time, but he made a lot o big plays with Tannehil at QB last year and ran away from people regularly. They used him a little different this year and it took him about 4 or 5 games to really get into a rhythm with Johnny. Kid is gonna be a player. I don't care what color he is.
