    OT Bobby Massie, Ole Miss - best player available, imho.
    Rams might scoop him up #96. They were mocked by everybody to take Matt Kalil for months, yet they still have to take an O-lineman.

    No receivers named Jones...again...ever! No Marvin Jones, no Dwight Jones...
    Reliant needs to be a NO-JONES ZONE.

    I think we should draft a NT.

    Marvin Jones would be an instant starter, IMO.

    #1 - Andre Johnson
    #2 - Marvin Jones
    #3 - DeVier Posey
    #4 - Kevin Walter

    No Jacoby Jones!

    What about Childs? I thought a bunch of people were pretty high on him.

    If we go BPA we get a quality prospect with our next pick no matter what and even a pick for need could end up working well for us depending on how the top of the round falls.

    Is it 11am CST yet? :)

    I'd like a DE but dont like any of the remaining in the 4th .... Not much quality here.

    Chase Minnifield CB 5'10" 183 Virginia would be a steal in the 4th.


    Alameda Ta'Amu DT 6'3" 348 Washington is still on the board and althought I dont think DT is a need position , he's one of the better remaining options.


    Still some good WR's left , particularly Criner , Childs , Givins and Toon .... Of those , I'd prefer Givins.

    Mississippi OT Bobby Massie tho after the Brooks pick , I dont think OL is a priority.

    My belief is that the 4th round is when the Texans truly turn into a BPA team (and that's BPA by the Texans' specifc board, not so much by general thought).

    That said, with 5 picks and 3 in the 4th round I am expecting a couple of position that are not high need to be taken. Would not be total surprised to see a trade down with a fourth.

    Well, we have 3 picks in the 4th, yeah? Okay.

    1.) Bob Masssie (OT)

    2.) Greg Childs (WR)

    3.) Chase Minnifield (CB)

    Bobby Massie OT
    Greg Childs WR/Chris Givens WR
    Jared Crick DE

    If we got Massie that would be a lot of beef on the right side of the OL.

    he should be off the board already, we have the 4th pick tomorrow, we need o-line depth, seems logical..

    1. Josh Chapman - NT Alabama; BPA IMHO. If he hadn't been injured, he would have probably been a late 1st, most certain 2nd RD pick. Great value in 4th RD. Has a great bust and is a good athlete with violent hands and very powerful body.

    2. Marvin Jones - WR Cal; Good size, speed and athletic ability. Great hands and not afraid to get physical/block.

    3. Bobby Massie - RT Mississippi; Play big and physical--does a good job in zone blocking schemes. Nasty run blocker, but does not have elite feet and has trouble on the edge--sounds a bit like our last RT.

    4. George Iloka - FS Boise St; "Colt TE Killer." Wade's Safeties need to be able to cover and at 6'3.5" 225 w/ 34.5" vert will allow him to go man-to-man w/ Coby Fleener.

    What happened to Jared Crick? I remember him being real good when Suh was at Nebraska.

    But don't forget the Rams start off tomorrow and if they need OT help, as well. If we lose out on Massie, I would expect the Texans to target David Molk.

    Got injured a lot last year. Got double teamed a lot without Suh. Still played pretty solidly when fit.

    4th would be good value, could replace Smith next year.

    Crick would be another guy to consider in teh 4th, but keep your eye on...

    Ryan Van Bergen - 5T - Michigan: 6-5.5, 288; 4.9/40; 31/Bench; Solid run-stopper w/ some pass rush skills.

    If the Rams don't get him with the 1st pick in the fourth we should be able to get him. The bad news is that the Rams need an OT.
