Okay, it's time to try something a little different. Most everyone believes the Texans don't have the cajones to trade up in the draft to go get that special player. Well, what if they did & what would our draft look like? Finding a willing partner to trade up with should be a lot easier than trading down. All you have to do is agree upon the price. No matter how you slice it, trading up very high is going to gut your draft. However, if you can spread the cost over two drafts then the pain shouldn't be as severe. The player I have the Texans targeting is Patrick Peterson. Getting him should finally fix our secondary once & for all. Now I know we're switching to the 3-4 this year & might need several pieces to make the transition, but I'm willing to make this move because Wade has said that we're not that far away & only need a few pieces. In order to get Peterson we'll most likely have to trade up to the 3rd pick. There are indications that Buffalo wants a QB. They're rumored to want Cam Newton & feel that Gabbert might not be as mobile as Chan Gailey wants his QB's to be. The problem for them is that Carolina may very well select Newton at #1. While Peterson would be a sweet player to select, CB is not their greatest area of need. They want a QB & really need help on the Dline. They could just select one of the other stud linemen & leave the value of Peterson for the next team in the draft or look for a suitable trade down & pick up some extra picks. That's where we come in. Houston sends the #11 (1st), #73 (3rd), #104 (4th), & next year's #1 pick to Buffalo. Buffalo sends the #3 (1st) to Houston. If we assume next year's #1 is the equivalent of this year's 2nd round pick, then it comes out to us sending 2051 pts. & getting back 2200 pts. We could include our 3rd or 4th next year to get it closer, but since they're getting an extra #1 pick I'm going to assume that will be an acceptable price to pay. With the #11 pick Buffalo should be able to select from JJ Watts, Cameron Jordan or one of the two 1st round worthy QB's of Mallett & Locker just ahead of Minnesota. And with this trade, here's how I would envision our draft going: 1) Patrick Peterson (CB) - We can now move Quinn to FS. 2) Brooks Reed (OLB) or Sam Acho (OLB) 5) Jeron Johnson (SS) or Eric Hagg (SS) 6) Blaine Sumner (NT) or Zane Taylor (C) 7) Mario Harvey (ILB) or Jerod Johnson (QB) 7a) Denarius Moore (WR) or Allen Bradford (RB) Well, what do you think of this idea?
