    Free Agency
    FS Ken Hamlin 6'2 209lbs, age 25
    He is the FS weve been looking for.

    DT Terdell Sands 6'7 335lbs, age 27
    He is a Ginormous DT. IMO the Texans severly need a DT like him to take double teams away from M Williams and to keep blockers from getting to the second level aka Demeco Ryans.

    A few others for depth.

    Draft

    Im trading our first round (5th) pick back about the tenth pick and picking up a second rounder. Are picks are 9th, 36,42,68,100,132,164,196

    Round 1 JaMarcus Russell QB 6'6 260lbs QB with lazer rocket arm. I read somewhere that the LSU coaching says he can throw the ball the length of the field. If true thats simply amazing.

    Round 2a Daymeion Hughes CB 6'0 188lbs A CB that can actually catch the ball when it hits him in the hands.

    Round 2b Rufus Alexander OLB 6'1 230lbs Energetic, Nasty, Good Leadership three things this team seriously needs.

    Round 3 Benn Grubs G 6'3 318lbs Nasty lineman who finishes his blocks

    Round 4 Doug Datish C 6'5 295lbs has played left tackle, left guard, right guard and center. Our future C

    Round 5 Paul Soliai DT 6'4 334lbs you can never have enough Ginormous DT's. Seriously though we need depth at DT.

    Round 6 Daniel Sepulveda P Baylor 6'3 230lbs He can kick the ball far. REALLY FAR.

    Round 7 C.J. Ah You DE 6'4 272lbs How could you pass on a guy with that name.

    Comments please


    Oh by the way go Bengals!

    We cant fix everthing in one year and there is a bunch of good RB coming out of collage in the next few years.

    Also RB's take less time to develope than most other positions.

    I like the way you think :) this would be a perfectly acceptable offseason to me just take Dwayne Wright RB in the 3rd rd. & push the rest of your picks back one round. Any idea what the free agents contracts are gonna cost? do the Texans have the cap room or would they have to make some cuts thus adding more dead cap money?

    Good thing your QB is built like a freight train. No OLT on your list, you've already damned the kid. We got gaurds and centers stracked like a cord of wood by the back door. That ain't the problem. Rest of it looks OK. Like the move down for sure. Second round picks and the Punter is solid. No gripes. You're putting a lot of chips on spencers leg.

    If you can get Hughes in the 2nd round, then that would be a badass draft, and a great offseason.

    I would probably just take AP and be done with it.

    FYI, here is where you might have read that.

    If we get a corner in high rounds or Nate Clemons, we can pass on safety. You didn't give any stats on Ken Hamlin but he meets size/age. What will he cost?

    We already have Thomas Johnson 6'2" 300; Anthony Maddox 6'1" 300lbs; Anthony Weaver 6'3" 285; Travis Johnson 6'3" 310; Alfred Malone DT/DE 6'5" 308; Seth Payne 6'4" 305 and that doesn't count Mario at 6'7" DE. We have plenty of big boys. I'd rather not spend too much in F/A for this position but I could see one drafted in 4th or 5th.

    uhhh.... So you will take a offensive lineman at 3rd round? Do you think that will solve our offensive line problem? And don't expect our front office to draft a QB at first round. They love David Carr.

    Keeping in mind that David might be back next year, here is a senario.

    Round:

    1: Sam Baker, OT, USC - Traded down to the 10th pick. This allows me to get a 2nd round pick, and grab our OLB later.
    1: Michael Griffin, S, Texas - Starts day one, and gives us that big play safety we need. Used our 3rd round pick to dip back into the first round for this guy.
    2: Rufus Alexander, OLB, Oklahoma - At 6'1" 230, he doesnt have the super size, but hey, Demeco isnt a giant either.
    3: Traded. - Traded to get Griffin.
    4: CB
    5: Justin Vincent, RB, LSU - Runs big, in big games. Also catches passes out of the backfield well.
    6: OG
    7: DT

    Well we would be getting C spencer and M Flanagan back. I think Benn Grubbs would be the best G on our team. Doug Datish could possibly take Flanagans starting spot by the end of the season.

    LT C Spencer
    LG C Pitts
    C M Flanagan / D Datish
    RG B Grubbs
    RT E Winston

    Very young oline with better talent than any oline we have had.

    Not to mention our best offensive lineman came out of the third round.

    Kyle Young is a much better OC but he didn't have a good season this year, so we do have chance with him in letter rounds. Doug Datish didn't impress me that much when I watched. I do agree with Ben Grubb, he is absolute beast and he will be the best Guard on our team.

    I would like to see us end up with one of these guys in round 1 - AD, Thomas. If we are to trade down then Jamarcus Russel. He is not fully ready to take over the QB spot since he makes allot of stupid mistakes but he does have talent.

    QB class this year is weak and most of the top echelon QB has weak arm strength except Russel.

    I think Kyle Young will already be off the board by the time our 4th round pick comes around.

    Thomas will be long gone by the time we pick and AD scares me with his injury history. Even though his injuries are not reocurring.

    I think the Texans should and will cut Seth Payne. He is old and gets injured to much. If we do cut him Im pretty sure we would save about 3.5 million. MW and Anthony Weaver are both DE they can play DT. That leaves Thomas Johnson, Anthony Maddox, Travis Johnson, and Alfred Malone. That is not a very impresive list. Thomas Johnson and Alfred Malone are also both FA.

    My opinions are in bolded red.

    I would actually be really happy with this draft. I really want 1st round OLine, but Russell and two interior OLmen would make me quite happy. As long as we dont draft Russell to start right away, I see this as being an even better draft than last years.

    My favorite player in this draft is Joe Thomas by far. but we dont stand a chance at getting him unless we trade up. That aint happnen.
