That's it. I am not doing another one. Rather than try to predict what will happen, I will tell you what I would do. Will the Texans do what I say, I seriously doubt it. If you are looking for a prediction of what they will do, you came to th wrong place. If, on the other hand, you are looking to see what I would do, then come on in. If I was the Texans GM, I would trade down. I think acquiring extra picks is immensely important for this team. While some say the draft is top heavy, I think the real value is in the 3rd and fourth rounds this year. With that in mind, Texans GM Awtysst trades the #11 2011 pick to the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins in turn trade #15(first round), #121(4th round), and #153 (5th round). The math is very comparable. Miami moves up to grab Alton Smith. 1. Brooks Reed, OLB- Arizona He is shooting up the board and in the 15 spot may be the BPA. He represents excellent value and would be in a position of need as well. Could be our Clay Matthews III. He moves directly into the starting lineup. 2. Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia Everyone wants the Texans to sign Ike Taylor from Pitt in the FA season. Well, here is the guy who reminds me the most of Ike Taylor. Ras is a big physical CB, with good speed, and good hands. He can play man or zone. He could be an immediate starter and would shift Quinn to Saftey next to Troy Nolan. This pick gives us 2 starters (Dowling at CB and Quinn at Saftey). 3. Chris Carter, OLB, Fresno State I will double dip at OLB because we have no idea what we really have here. We are banking on Barwin being ready, but who knows if he will be? Carter provides us an instant edge rushing threat. He is a high motor pass rush specialist that can learn the run stopping along the way. He would be part of the pass rush packages. 4a. Casey Matthews, ILB, Oregon We have no idea if Meco will be ready to go when he returns. Will Meco be the same? I hope so, but we don't know. In a best case sceanrio, Matthews becomes a key depth player and can spell Meco or Cush in the ILB spot. In a Worst case scenario he competes for a starter spot since Meco is not ready to go. He has excellent bloodlines and draws favorable comparison to Zach Thomas. 4b. Kendrick Ellis NT Hampton Slight character issue, but I will take the prototypical NT here. This is the kind of NT Phillips really likes. He is a big boy who can move a bit. He would not start immediately, but give him some time with Wade and he will see playing time this year. 5a. Austin Pettis, WR, Boise State A good size receiver, good hands, reasonable speed a potential compliment for AJ. A very solid #2 receiver. He is similar to Kevin Walter, but he is a bit faster. 5b. Lawrence Guy, DE, Arizona State This is one of the best 3-4 DE draft classes of all time. In a normal draft, Guy would probably be a 2nd rounder, but in this draft class with the likes of Jordan, Watt, Wilkerson, Heyward, Bailey, Ballard, and Jenkins, he drops to the fifth. No problem, I'll take him. He is a bit raw, but give him some time and I would not be surprised to see him as a starter on Defense in the future. 6. Bruce Miller, OLB, Central Florida The pass rush ability from a 3-4 is EXTREMELY important. I know this is my third OLB, but great teams bring tremendous pressure all the time. Having multiple pass rushers allows you to do that. Right now the Texans have maybe 1 OLB in Barwin. With my draft they have maybe 4. Extra pass rushers allow you to create exotic blitz packages that confuse opposing team offenses. Miller is a high motor pass rusher with little to no run stopping ability. He is a smart guy and can learn to be adequate in time. Till then, he is another high motor pass rusher. 7. Chris Neild, NT, West Virginia Another fun project for Wade. NT is such an important position, I think we need to consider a couple of prospects there. Neld is more of a clogging NT than Ellis and woulpd give Wade an additional wrinkle if he can develop him. 7. Pat Devlin, QB, Delaware A nice QB project for Kubiak. Yeah, I know. Kubiak may not be here long, but I will take a chance in the Might take a year or two, but Devlin could be our future backup. He has good size, great arm strength, reasonable accuracy, and has a quick release. Problem is, he tends to hold the ball a bit too long despite his quick release. Teach him not to do that and he would be a great backup. Just what Kubiak needs to bolster his resume as an OC/QB guru as he dusts off his resume at the end of the season.
