    We have KILLED in the 4th Round in the past.
    Fred Bennet
    Owen Daniels
    Domanick Davis
    Jerome Mathis
    Glenn Earl

    All starters or better at some point in their careers as Texans. Lets hope we pull another one out of our hat!

    Talk about boom or bust. Do we take a chance on Tommy Blake or is that too soon. He has HIGH first rd talent. If you hit on him, you hit the jackpot. It's just as likely that he is out of football in a year.

    I'm really hoping we take a chance on him in the later rounds but I'm not sure if Kubiak is willing to deal with a guy with some mental issues in his past. I'd be happy if we selected him though.

    I like Xavier Adibi or Geno Hayes here for a will LB.

    Jeremy Geathers from UNLV has a chance to be a really good pass rusher. He makes some sense at DE.

    I don't think Simeon Castille or Jonathan Hefney has been taken? Either could be a good safety.

    Lots of ways we could go here.

    Owen Schmitt, FB.

    We need quality depth at FB...and I think Gibbs will pair him with Slaton.

    If Bob Sanders get's anywhere near his boy Steve, Owen will shove his helmet up his ass.

    I doubt it. Leach blocked very well, and that is the main purpose of the FB in our scheme. I just wish he had better hands.

    Isn't Red Bryant more of a tackle? I think we need more of a speed rushing end than a massive tackle type.

    We can take Chris Harrington instead, then. Equally good picks.

    I'll take Erik Ainge in the 5th rd. Kubiak develops him instant 3rd rounder coming back :)

    We definitely just grabbed a future starter with Xavier.

    Long live the immortal 4th rounder!

    Adibi is a huge value in the 4th. I'm really impressed with his coverage skills as an LB.
