    Lock down the LT position with Levi Brown, take a safety in the 3rd round 4th-7th BPA.

    My top 3 needs in the draft are: stud DB, fast and legit #2 WR, and another OT/OL for depth purposes. i don't care what rounds they come in, I just want those 3 things in the draft. If we get them, I think we should be fine.

    ...fill at least 2 of these 3 slots with potential starters: FS, CB, WR.

    I would really like to see us pick up a center that would at the very least be able to compete with McKinney/Flanagan. Still think DB and WR are more pressing needs.

    I am the biggest proponent of draft O-line in the first .. If the Texans trade down and get Staley (preferr Levi Brown) I would not be upset because that would get us picks.

    I wanna see us trade down and get an OL, CB, WR and FS in the draft... hopefully in that order. And as for the last couple of picks, I'd go BPA, making sure to draft a DT.

    Trade down to 20-25, pick up a second (ish) and get Ryan Kalil and DB help. See if you can find a WR somewhere around there, too.

    Trade down, get another pick for this or next year. Get CB/Nelson in 1st rd. WR in 3rd rd, then look for OL and DL the rest of the way.

    That would be sweet. Get some of our 2nd rd picks back. Trade our 10 down to say..25ish and pick up this year's and next year's 2nd round picks.

    Take Ryan Kalil.

    Then in rounds 2-7 we could take best available in WR, CB, FS, DL, OL.

    I've talked to some Phil. Eagles fans and they REALLY love patrick willis. Willis may go 11 to san francisco or 12, 13,14. we need more picks so this could be a real good trading partner. Eagles draft 26th overall.

    10= 1300 points
    26= 700 points
    differenst = 500 points.

    Say they throw in their 2nd rounder next season.
    2008 2nd round choice= (this years =330 points)

    we still need something else...they suggested Tra Thomas LT. last year they got Winston Justice. Thomas is a 10 year veteran (selected 11th overall) so he might not have but a few years left in him. injury in '05 but performed well last year. If yall know more about him fill me in please. Thomas could be a great guy to have w/ spencer's ?'s. and untill our o-line 'gels' and becomes solid...

    with the 26th pick we take Ryan Kalil. this is not too high for him imo.

    so our o-line would look like this...

    Thomas-Pitts-Kalil-Weary-Winston
    i didn't include spencer because we have no idea his situation. i like the look of that line a lot and if it takes spencer a whole year to heal then so be it we'd be fine.

    then again rest of this draft we could go wr, cb, fs..etc but next year we'd have a second rd pick. our oline would pretty much be complete and young'ish..to protect our new franchise qb of $48 mill!!!!

    what do yall think?

    Not too long ago I mentioned trading down so we could nab Kalil and some other o line help. I was told it takes two to tango and who really would trade up with us for more picks.
    I'll take Kalil, Satele or Datish...but I believe we need a center and at minimum another tackle...
    to be followed by WR and safety
    Any safeties still available in Free Agency?

    That would roughly be the 2005 trade between the Texans and the Saints .

    We got a 3rd ... I guess that's not bad .

    WE SIGNED A STARTING TACKLE and we signed a decent DT. We dont need to draft Brown what we need is a CB or FS with the 10 pick, or trade down to draft the same or possibly WR. Landry wont be there with the 10th pick, so Leon Hall is possible. If we trade back for another 3rd say to 15-17, we could still pick a starter we need, and pick up depth. Levi Brown should not be on our draft board.
