    Post your top 3-5 picks.

    #1. D'Brickashaw Ferguson OT Virginia
    #2. Max Jean-Gilles OG Georgia
    #3. Dominique Byrd TE Southern Cal
    #3. Jason Avant WR Michigan

    I would like to see some big time picks on the O-line, and a new TE, with another WR threat on the field.

    If not Jason Avant, I would go with a linebacker like Abdul Hodge ILB Iowa.

    1) OT Marcus McNeill, Auburn
    2) DE/OLB Darryl Tapp, Virginia Tech
    3) CB Will Blackmon, Boston College
    3) TE Jeff King, Virginia Tech

    With Ferguson's injury I think that McNeill would be the safest option. Adding Tapp would give the defense a proven playmaker, who can rush the passer. Blackmon is a solid CB who will only get better under Hoke. And finally King is the TE who can catch and block the offense has been missing since year one.

    You've got the right idea there DC, because with the exception of Verand
    Morency, everyone of our first day Draft picks over the last 2 years have
    been for D players. So no matter how much help we might need on D, the
    O side of the ball is much more desparate for help.

    1. Reggie Bush would be sweet, but I would like to see Eric Winston
    2. Andrew Withworth
    3. Donovan Raiola
    3.b. Dominique Byrid
    4. Will Blackmon or Devin Hester.

    1.D'brick
    2.Andrew Withworth
    3.Devin Hester
    3.Dominique Byrd
    4.Thomas Howard

    REASONING:


    D'brick will be the top LT in this draft and quite a few to follow. We need a feature LT and now is the chance to take him.

    I also believe Withworth will fall under the radar until the early 2nd...(our pick) and i believe he could replace wade while also providing insurance. I feel he makes a great RT.

    Devin hester provides raw talent from Miami with some fire. He is lightning fast and has great hands, he has also been used at wr for miami just to give you an idea of his hands.

    Byrd is the tightend for the defending champs. This kid can catch. he is also part of the OL that protects the defending heisman winner who doesnt seem to get sacked.

    Howard is going to be a value pick for any team. he is a VERY hard hitter and seems to make plays everywhere on the field.

    1. D. Ferguson- Best OT in the draft period

    2. D.Tapp- Can play standup OLB or can put the hand down and be a pass-rushing DE

    3a.Dominique Byrd- second best all-around TE in the draft behind Pope

    3b.Jason Avant- AJ gets the ball now with two deeps threats in Mathis and Avant

    1st Round - D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia - IMO, best LT available in the draft.

    [​IMG]
    2nd Round - Davin Joseph, OG, Oklahoma - His versatility (can play OG or RT) gives him value here.

    [​IMG]
    3rd Round - Anthony Schlegal, ILB, Ohio State - It may be a reach to think he'd be available at this point but here's to wishful thinking.

    [​IMG]
    3rd Round - Manny Lawson - OLB/DE, North Carolina State - PLAY MAKER. Probably on drugs thinking he'll last this long.

    [​IMG]
    4th Round - Will Allen, OG, Texas - Straight homer pick. Brings a nasty disposition greater than any OL presently on Houston's roster.


    These five players bring an attitude and identity this team sorely needs.

    This is kinda sad for me, the only thing I am excited about or looking forward to right now is the draft...If Ferguson is there when we pick and we trade down, I swear my head will explode... :bomb:

    I've got to see D'Brickashaw Ferguson play, but its going to be hard since he's been hurt. The only game I've seen him play in was last season and he seemed more of a LG ala Pitts. If this is the case then the Texans should move Pitts to LT now and see what he can do. However Mankins clearly outplayed him in that game & he lasted until the end of the first round where New England took him 32nd & now starts as their LG.

    Unless I see it with my own eyes I'm not jumping on D'Brick Bandwagon :cool:

    I have been most impressed with three tackles so far and they include Andrew Whitworth, LSU, Jonathan Scott UT & Winston Justice (JR.) USC. So if the Texans do have the #1 pick they could draft the top RB/playmaker Bush and let one of these three tackles fall into their lap with the 1st pick in the 2nd rd.

    just added on GBN where they are ranked in the OT pecking order-

    5. Jonathan Scott 6-7, 310 Texas
    6. Andrew Whitworth 6-7, 330 LSU
    7. *Winston Justice 6-6, 300 Southern California

    Well, this season seems to be tanked - here's to hoping we can hang on to that #1 draft pick. If we get that I think their will be enough teams fighting for Leinhart that we could make a sweet trade. This team has a lot of problems and we need to draft as many quality players as possible 'cause we sure as hell 'aint gettin 'em through free agency. Come the start of next season I want to see at least one good O-Lineman, a quality #2 reciever, someone who can pressure a quarterback, and a backup qb.

    Somewhere in there we need to add: Elvis Dumervil, DE, Louisville

    Get this, in 5 games, Dumervil has posted:

    35 total tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 15 sacks, 1 INT, 7 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery

    1 OT Eric Winston Miami
    2 OLB Garrett McIntyre Fresno State
    3 WR Mike Hass Oregon State
    3 FB Brian Leonard Rutgers

    I would trade our top three overall pick down at least twice; maybe first down to five-seven then again to twelve-thirteen, pick up at least two more first day picks this year and one or two next year

    traded picks

    2 OT Daryn Colledge
    3 TE Jeff King

    does anyone know a good place to find out what teams have picks in what rounds? that would be great

    While we're playing armchair GM, I'd trade down from 1, where we'll likely be picking, to 4, picking up a 2nd rounder in the process...I would then draft Ferguson with the 4th overall pick, Davin Joseph with the 33rd pick, Leonard Pope with the 36th pick, Jay Cutler from Vandy with the 65th pick (to learn from whatever vet QB we bring in for a year), and Manny Lawson with the Saints' 3rd rounder...

    I really like Mike Hass, but I figured he'd be more of a slot receiver in the NFL. Perhaps I'm not giving him enough credit for his speed, but he does have excellent hands and knows how to get open or find soft spots in a zone.
