    So, the Texans have a monster schedule left, with Fragile Matty and half the line out. So, if the Texans choke their asses off, will they have a shot at McFadden? I guess the 9ers have to go on a winning streak to keep the Pats away from him, but we may have an outside shot.

    If we do, we either get the best player in the NCAA or we have great trade bait.

    Any thoughts?

    Yea I have heard alot of talk about everyone wanting McFadden. We won't get him, however there will be alot of options in this draft.

    Pats need to discover a burning need at other than RB and we have to continue to play as we have, then we have a legitimate shot. Dolphins have many needs & I encourage all Texans fans to do a mind weld and whisper "Dorsey".

    How about Schaub and two 2nd round picks? You need a QB and would then have three 2nds... no I ain't buying it either.

    Shoot, maybe Miami should take Matt Ryan. Or draft McFadden and hope for a McNabb or some veteran and bank on Beck for the future? What does Miami do?

    The Patriots are going to take McFadden if they have the chance. Maroney and McFadden, Tom Brady, Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Donte Stallworth sounds like an all star team.

    I imagine teams will be trying to get McFadden before the Patriots pick. Nobody wants the Pats to get McFadden.

    It would be quite a site to see a 5 win team have the #2 or #3 pick in the nfl draft (with their original draft pick!)

    they don't need a veteran. as a backup, maybe. but Beck is in for the long haul.

    I'm not going to be surpried if they do another Don Strock and pick up Paul smith day two for cheap insurance.

    I doubt that the Dolphins will draft McFadden for any reason other than trading him, unless they have real concerns that neither of their currently injured Running Backs will return to form.

    Apparently the dolphins have tried to hijack this thread, but Apple, I dont see a shot in he77 in McFadden.... Most mocks that i have seen have us picking around 12, 13 or 14 spot. Each mock had us picking anywhere from an OT to LB (from Penn State) or a RB (if Felix Jones from Arkansas comes out)...

    I dont get the obsession with Dallas trading up for McFadden.

    They really aren't hurtin in the run game right now:

    #7 in rushing offense (121.4)
    #5 in YPC (4.3)
    #10 in rushing TDs (11)
    #5 with only 3 lost fumbles

    I expect them to get a top CB & maybe another LB or DL before they go RB, even if it is McFadden.

    As much as I would really want a LT, I would be very supportive of Felix Jones. With Houston Nutt leaving Arkansas for Ole Miss, Arkansas program being in the unknown and prob. not a SEC West contender, McFadden being drafted top 5, I wonder if Felix jump ship and declares...

    As you say, with Houston Nutt leaving and Arkansas a big "?", I would say there is a pretty good shot at him declaring.

    I wonder if Dallas would be more likely to trade up for Felix than they would be for McFadden. I still say it's going to be a horrible trade for Dallas if they trade all the way up to #1. They won't have to trade away as much to move up to somewhere around where we are picking.
