As most of you know, I am in big favor of the Texans trading down to #4 to select D'Brickashaw Ferguson in the first and get Manny Lawson with our 2nd rounder. I now think that Lawson will fall that far unless hes shows out at the combine. There is also another group of trade down enthusiasts on the board who believe that it would be smarter to draft Mario Williams and get Eric Winston in the 2nd. Both sides have great arguments, and I believe both make great points. I was actually starting to change my opinion and want us to draft Williams in the first because Winston is a better run blocker and a more complete OL at this time. Then the thought of athleticism crossed my mind. That is the thing that has kept me a Ferguson fan so long. I know that you cant teach athleticism, but a player can get stronger, he can get bigger and he can get better technique. Eric Winston is bigger, stronger and a better run blocker than Ferguson, but Ferguson can learn to run block better, especially if we hire Sherman, and with an NFL training plan he will get bigger and stronger. Winston will never be as athletic as Ferguson though. My 3 year projection: I think Winston could be a great RT and he will dominate in the run game and also be an adequate pass protector, while Ferguson may be just as good of a run blocker, he will be about 315 and he will be one of the best book end LTs in the draft. Now on Mario Williams and Manny Lawson. I think that Lawson is just as athletic as Williams, and that is saying alot. If Lawson was 25 pounds heavier, I think that he could challenge Williams for the top DE spot in the draft. Lawson is just as tall, he is faster and has just as many pass rush moves. But like Ferguson is to Winston, Lawson is smaller and weaker than Williams. Lawson only had 4 less sacks and 3 less tackles than Williams, which isnt bad for a player who is undersized and lacks strength. My 3 year projection I think that Williams will still be the better player, but I think that if Lawson can gain 25 lbs and get up to 270 he may be a better pass rusher because he is faster and quicker. Williams will still be better against the run but Lawson wont be a liability when he is able to pick up some strength. Thats just my opinion, but what do you guys think. In the long run, and not short term, how do you guys think that these players will turn out after being trained and coached in the NFL.
