    Texans have the 5th pick with two games remaining (Colts & Browns) forget about who the Texans will take this year with their 1st pick can anyone say for sure what pick we'll have?

    I would hope the Texans can at least split the last two games being @ home. my preference would be to finally beat the Colts. here is the top of the current board order I'm going to guess the Texans stand pat @ #5 pick- http://www.gbnreport.com/weeklydraftorder.htm

    1 Detroit 2-12 .531
    2 Oakland 2-12 .536
    3 Tampa Bay 3-11 .549
    4 Arizona 4-10 .496
    5 Houston 4-10 .527
    6 Cleveland 4-10 .527
    7 (1)Washington 5-9 .513

    So if they win the last two, we move back to nine or ten....Then at 6-10, we've over reacted with our assement ? DC stays as the starter & we can pretty much stick to the lock and re-load plan ? We're two players away from the play offs in '08 ? I don't think so beerlover.

    I think everyone on that team is honestly tring as hard as they can. They just do not have enough tallent at this point, with 11 IR ed and God knows how many banged up, to compete. I think we're pretty safe at the four to five range.
    But as they say, that is why they play the games. :mario3:

    1. Detroit 2-12
    Remaining opponents
    vs. Chicago
    at Dallas

    They'll lose both games.
    Projected record
    2-14

    2. Oakland 2-12
    Remaining opponents
    vs. Kansas City
    at N.Y. Jets

    They'll lose both games.
    Projected record
    2-14

    3. Tampa Bay 3-11
    Remaining opponents
    at Cleveland
    vs. Seattle

    They'll lose both games.
    Projected record
    3-13

    4. Arizona 4-10
    Remaining opponents
    at San Francisco
    at San Diego

    They'll lose both games.
    Projected record
    4-12

    5. Houston 4-10
    Remaining opponents
    vs. Indianapolis
    vs. Cleveland

    We'll lose both games.
    Projected record
    4-12

    I think that the draft order stays put. The Bucs look like the only team that may be able to win a game, but I think they're spent for the season after their OT loss against Chicago.

    The Cardinals' Opponents' W/L percentage may also go up in when they lose to San Diego. If that's the case, then we might be able to get their spot at 4.

    1. Detroit 2-12, remaining opponents are in the playoffs, Bears locked homefield. Possibly win one, but doubt it. 2-14

    2. Oakland 2-12 Jets have chance to get in, but Oak still bites. 2-14.

    3. Tampa Bay 3-11 Possibly beat Cleve, Seattle leading division, 4-12

    4. Arizona 4-10. SD clinched, San Fran trying. 1 close game but 4-12

    5. Houston 4-10 Indy's locked, beat Cleveland just to have a high note. 5-11

    6. Cleveland 4-10 Noted above loses last 2 games 4-12

    7. Washington 4-10 takes St.Louis and loses to NYG 5-11

    So, that would mean
    1. Detroit
    2. Oak
    3. Tam
    4. Ari
    5. Cleveland
    6. Houston
    7. Washington

    I know you said you didn't want players but I had to....

    That leaves us with oak/cleveland taking adrian peterson.
    Arizona taking joe thomas.

    looks like defense again in the 1st. or a trade down if calvin johnson is still up there. (again sorry for referring to players)

    so Dante, you're saying Grueden, even after watching his QB literally get his spleen riped out of him right befor his eyes....he's going to pass on the hotest OLT prospect on the board ? I mean I know he's intense but don't you think he gets a shot at Thomas he's going to take it ? I agree that Johnson is one of the
    highest rated WR prospects to come down the pyke in a while. But this isn't the first year the Bucs have had troubles along the o-line. Cadilac is going to run a whole lot better with an anchor at OLT. It'll take Gruden about five secs. to get that card up to the podium.

    Arizona and Houston will both finish 4-12.

    We won't beat Indy or Cleveland. We're probably moving up to 4 in the draft.

    Arizona will lose to better teams than we'll lose to, so they'll drop to 5 based on schedule strength.
