    This is my 2014 projection using the Walter as a reference to cherry pick and going back to the 4-3 . http://walterfootball.com/draft2014charlie.php If they're not listed , they may not be on the team . I'm trading Tate .

    Right now I'm leaning toward Mike Zimmer or Jack Del Rio as coach .

    Offense
    LWR 80 JOHNSON, ANDRE
    RWR 10 Hopkins, DeAndre 11 Posey, DeVier
    LT 76 Brown, Duane
    LG Gabe Jackson, G 2nd pick
    C 55 MYERS, CHRIS
    RG 79 Brooks, Brandon
    RT Brennan Williams
    TE 88 Graham, Garrett
    QB Tajh Boyd 1st rd pick 7 Keenum, Case
    FB J.C. Copeland,
    RB 23 Foster, Arian 41 Wood, Cierre

    Defense
    LDE Watt, JJ
    DT Earl Mitchell
    DT DeAndre Coleman, 3rd rd
    RDE 94 Whitney Mercilus , Sam Montgomery
    SLB 58 Cushing, Brian
    ILB Shayne Skov
    WLB Willie Jefferson
    LCB 25 Kareem Jackson
    SS 38 MANNING, DANIEAL
    FS 36 Swearinger, DJ
    RCB

    Why would we switch back to a 4-3 defense when we have one of the best defenses in the NFL now? Also I don't want Boyd as a QB, currently very overrated IMO.

    Also I doubt seriously if Brennan Williams ever plays a down for us much less being the starter at RT.

    Love the Copeland pick.

    They can't stop anybody once inside the 20 , they are way overrated . They do not have the two most important components of a 3-4 , beast NG and stud OLB . That's also the two hardest positions , to find and it would cost high draft picks .

    Del Rio because he's already made his mistakes much like Bill Belichick did in Cleveland before going to New England . That's my theory anyway .

    I think Zimmer is a very under the radar guy but is very good .

    IMHO....Del Rio had 9 seasons in Jax, enough time for me. RE. Zimmer: I have always liked Zimmer as a DC, a Red Flag for me on Zimmer is he has interviewed for Head Coach half a dozen times, he must not interview well.....if I had to go with a former HC, for me it would be Ken Whisenhunt but prefer coordinators, Bevell, Quinn and McDermott. #1 choice is David Shaw.

    Why use a 1st on Boyd if he'll be there for our 2nd round selection?

    I think Teddy is better . I also think a run of QBs is possible and you may not get who you want .

    If you're leaving Quessenberry off deliberately, I have to consider you mistaken.

    I don't think a 6th round pick is a cure all .

    I don't count any draft pick as a cure all, but Q was playing better than any offensive lineman in TC/Preseason besides Brown before he got injured. He is going to lock up that LG position.

    Not if they go away from the ZBS . Plus ... Q wasn't playing with the starters was he ?

    The stuff that Q was doing well wasn't dependent upon zone blocking. He was just technically sound across the board. He was playing behind Ben Jones who was (and still is) fkn terrible. Hear me now and believe me later, Q is going to lock that position down.

    ETA - I'm not saying don't draft G. I think competition across the board is great for every position, and I'm all about building the trenches. Just saying don't sleep on Q.

    If they believe he can do it then it's icing on the cake . I don't believe Jones can . If Q and Brennan Williams can play then that's great , the Texans can devote high picks to other gaping holes .

    I don't believe Jones should be in the NFL, period. I do not like that guy's play at all. Not sure on Williams. Honestly, I thought Q had the 2nd or 3rd best showing of any OLman in preseason. I am all for drafting OL, though. Still not sold on Brandon Brooks, and Newton should be ahead of Jones in the unemployment line.

    I think Brooks is not a ZB guy . He's a good enough athlete to try but I think he would be better in a power scheme .
