    ESPN sure has had a bunch of "specials" about the draft. I think this is "ESPN Draft Special 45! Where we'll tell you stuff that we didn't tell you during 1-44!"

    "The Texans have No Choice, but to make Reggie Bush their pick."

    - Mel Kiper Jr.

    Thats about it. Pretty much telling how all teams lie & send smoke screens for the last 10 days before the draft. They are having 2 specials a day until the draft.

    I hope Kiper does a 7 round mock. I want to see his hair at the end of that one.
    Remember his mock from last year, only 2 of first 20 were right.

    Talking head mentions that Denver now coveting Bush, or Vernon Davis. They would have to move up to get either one.

    Also that Jets asked Bush to workout with Leinart while they were in LA.

    Texans are in the drivers seat, regardless of what some posters on this board are typing.

    I'd take Denver's 2 first round picks to get out. Maybe a player and another pick or two. Picking in the middle to lower part of the first round isnt bad. Frankly, I dont like picking #1 or top 10 for that matter. Its always a gamble when you draft a guy but missing on a #1 pick is hard to overcome.

    I think what Mortensen said was that if Bush slipped the Broncos would take him. I don't think he said that they would trade up to #1 to get him. I think they are going to trade up to #6 and take Vernon Davis if they trade up at all.
