    I'm sure this has been asked multiple times but I actually tried to figure it out last night and couldn't. Who SHOULD we take with that high 2?

    We need OL but it's so deep, we can get a good one in the 3rd. (Scott, Whitworth, Colledge, etc..)

    We could use a TE. If Pope's there, maybe we reach but again, we can get a good one in the 3rd. (Fasano, Thomas, Kloppenstein, Byrd, etc..)

    We need a safety but I don't really value one here to draft.

    We NEED another corner and there's a good chance a Cromartie or the likes could fall.
    We NEED another MLB and D'Qwell Jackson would be a great pick here...but is it a little too high? D'Qwell is one my picks!

    What if Sinorice Moss is there? WOW! That would be hard to pass even though he's a complete non-need. Do we take a road-grader in Max Gean-Gilles even though he may not be the 'kind' of player that our system uses? What about Nick Mangold? Flanagan gets hurt you have your center, otherwise, he can move to guard.

    Anyway, I just can't get a grip on the 'need' here. If it were me, and one of the top corners were there (Tye Hill, Cromartie, Jennings) I'd go CB. Otherwise, I'd like to get a Gilles, Winston, or Mangold here... Heck, Bush could HIDE behind Big Max!!

    THoughts?

    We won't take a WR or a TE because we just signed Moulds and Putzier. I think we take a CB unless all of the good ones are taken, then we will take Winston if available

    CB would be the best position to take here, because there are 5 first rd. quality CB's and it is a critical position. J. Joseph, A. Cromartie, T. Hill, J. Williams, and J. Allen one of them has to be available in the second rd. I mean there are alot of other guys that could fall to our pick, but more than likely one of these guys would be there and whoever is there would be an incredible help. Sorry, I think linebacker could be addressed in the third rd. LB's usually fall on D-day.

    if i was a betting man, i would have to say

    With the #33 pick in the 2006 nfl draft, the houston texans select

    Donte Whitner-SS, University of South Carolina. Just a hunch

    Why another SS isn't FS what we need, and correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it likely that he might be there in the third?

    im not arguing the merits of the pick....just a hunch on my part. Take it with a grain of salt, and take it for what its worth. Maybe a little birdie told me.

    CB.

    It is the biggest immediate need, unless people believe that P-Buc has spent the entire off season growing a pair.

    That and there should be some genuine quality left on the board.

    I think you must go OT.

    Whitner can play either safety position. He can even get some spot duty in at CB if needed.

    Not Popular - I like Putzier and think he'll fit fine. But if you get a chance to get a 6'7" speedy TE who can block AND catch? You gotta think about it.

    Not Popular - I know that Big Max probably doesn't fit our style but this guy can plow the road. Throw him in with an OT from the 3rd and we're looking pretty good. Seriously, if you added Gean-Gilles AND Colledge to your right side - sounds nice!

    Popular - If Kubiak feels that Winston has the footwork, he may indeed be the pick here.

    However, any chance of trading your 2nd and your 3rd to move up with old pal Shanahan to 15 and take your choice of CB's? Probably too high a price to pay for a corner though??!!

    Winston, Cromartie, or Jackson/Holmes, if one of them falls.

    If Winston is there at #33 take him and combined with Bush selection you have a great draft no matter who else you pick.

    Since we all know that the Texans will probably draft Reggie in the first round, who do you think we should draft in the 2nd? Looking at some of the mock drafts, it looks like the following players may be available (depending on which mock draft you believe). I hope it is someone from this list, preferably O-Line, Defensive End or LB. Also feel free to add any name that is not on this list.

    TE - Leonard Pope (Georgia)
    T - Daryn Colledge - (Boise)
    T - Marcus McNeal (Auburn)
    G - Max Jean-Gilles (Georgia)
    G - Davis Joseph (oklahoma)
    G - Duce Lutui (USC)
    DE - Daryl Tapp (Va. Tech)
    DE - Tamba Hali (Penn St.)
    DE - Manny Lawson (NC St.)
    LB - D'Qwell Jackson (Maryland)
    LB - Bobby Carpenter (Ohio St.)
    CB - Antonio Cromartie (Florida St.)
    CB - Kelly Jennings (Miami)
    S - Ko Simpson (S. Carolina)
    S - Darnell Bing (USC)

    I personally like E. Winston out of miami, if he dropped that far. I also like jonathon joseph, CB, from S. Carolina. as well.

    Just off of your list, (which actually is not great)

    The bolded players are the only ones who deserve to be picked that early, and who would fit our system. Work on your list if you want to propose a question like this.

    Wow. TE - Leonard Pope (Georgia), T - Marcus McNeal (Auburn), G - Max Jean-Gilles (Georgia), and DE - Tamba Hali (Penn St.) could go that early as well if not already off the board.
