    A lot of talent left on the board. Would love to see a move like last year (trading back up into the 2nd round to get a player they like). For WR I would take Jeffery or Mcnutt in the 2nd or Broyles in the 3rd. I want to stay far away from Randle and Hill as possible.

    Who do you want TT?

    I didn't want him in the first round, but in the second, I'd like Fleener. Short of that, one of the WRs or a DT.

    If NT Jerel Worthy falls to us in the 2nd, I would be all over that.

    NT Brandon Thompson would also be nice, WR Brian Quick seems to have a lot of potential.

    OT Mitchell Schwartz would be great too. Admittedly, I like him a lot just because I love that name, Schwartz. It makes me think of Spaceballs. I'm hoping we get him in the 3rd, or from a trade up of our 3rd. If we don't get him though, then he will become my father's, brother's, nephew's, cousin's former roommate, which makes him absolutely nothing!!!

    Who do I want?

    Unless there's an awesome WR or G that falls, I'd go Dline. But that's just me.

    I'm looking for a WR. There are several and it depends on who falls to us.

    I'd love to get Fleener but I don't think he's going to drop to us and I'm not sure it's worth it to trade up for him.

    Other than that, I'd like OG, RT, DT, or possibly ILB. Don't know this draft well enough to target any particular guy.

    Not sure if it's realistic, but I'd love to see Massie fall to us at #58.

    I betcha there's going to be a run on WR's and T's at the top of the 2nd. Not really much to do with your post, but piggy-backed it anyway. :)

    I'm hoping to see a deal along the lines of us giving the Rams our 26th pick in the second round and 13th pick in the third round for the Rams' 7th pick in the second round.

    At that point I'd hope the Texans take the best available of Cordy Glenn, Jonathan Martin, Rueben Randle, or Stephen Hill.

    I would wager that there is not one single NFL fan that doesn't want their team to trade up in the 2nd round, because they're afraid that the one they want won't be there.

    I think they are staying put at 26.

    I agree completely. I don't understand why there is a need to draft Fleener at this point to add depth when we have a need to fill with a solid WR2. Right now we are going to be in trouble if we loose Andre again. I would like to see the Texans pick up another guy that is big and physical like Andre. What better mentor for a guy like Hill than AJ.

    I hope to see some movement toward a big physical receiver in the next round. I think that Brisell was undrafted, and we picked up Meyers late, like in the 5th round. Why would we draft these positions so early? Please someone help me to understand why we should draft depth at tight end or at oline before we address our need for targets down field. I ask this because I have seen alot of folks say they wanted to see fleener drafted in the first round.

    I'm saying 4th. I want NT Brandon Thompson #58 and Derek Wolfe #76 to replace Cody and Smith 2013.

    4 a OT/OG Zebrie Sanders 4b Ryan Broyles.

    WR will be hit hard today.

    At that pace, the rams will end up with every pick in the last 2 rounds...

    Obviously you know little about Fleener? WHile he is listed as a TE he is WR in our system, bigger and faster than Andre Johnson who could in two years move AJ to WR2. If not, he is definitely a WR2. If there #58, trumps ever WR available.

    Also Myers was a trade pick up from Denver we got for a 6th. Best trade Texans ever made.

    Because Fleener's not depth. He's an immediate starter.

    Last season, we played 2, 3, and 4 TE sets probably more than any other team in the league. We started at least 5 games in a 2 TE set. But if you limit yourself to thinking "this guy is a TE", then you're missing the point.

    Fleener, like Casey and OD, can line up in a variety of places. He can line up as a TE or he can split out and become a WR. He can probably fill an H-back position. He creates match-up problems that Kubiak can use in his formations.

    He, effectively, becomes our WR2.

    Last year, we had Dreessen in that role. He's gone. Right this second, we've got Garrett Graham taking Dreessen's spot but Garrett Graham hasn't stepped up so far and lived up to his "second coming of OD" billing.

    With Fleener, we immediately upgrade Dreesen's position at least from an athletic standpoint. Fleener may well be a better TE option than OD even when OD is healthy.

    BUT... I expect Fleener to go to the Colts at this point.

    Something like this for me too. Maybe if Bobby Massie falls. Or Jared Crick. Tons of good players still available and we're assured two of them.

    I'd go O line first if there's a good one avaliable. After that a good WR if there is one avaliable worth the pick. After that, BPA. LOL
