    Here is what I think would be a great draft weekend for Houston-

    Round 1- LaRon Landry S (unless Peterson is available)
    Round 2- Ryan Kalil C
    Round 3- Kevin Kolb QB
    Round 4- Tarell Brown CB
    Round 5- Andy Alleman OG
    Round 6- Jarret Hicks WR
    Round 7- Justin Medlock K

    and Ramonce Taylor HB as an undrafted FA

    wheres the pick for David Carr?

    Spencer is fully recoverd or at least can fill the RT postion while Winston moves to LT? :hides:

    LaRon Landry- superstar
    Ryan Kalil- all-pro
    Kevin Kolb- franchise QB
    Tarell Brown- great value
    Andy Alleman- address depth (but gone in 3rd)
    Jaret Hicks- Waltersesqe
    Justin Medlock- steal

    Man those look really good! I would love if the draft happened like that.

    I love LANDRY-1
    I love KALIL-2
    I'm warming up to KOLB in the 3rd -great to learn for a year or so...
    Tarell brown in the 4th would be good for me...our secondary would be sweet.

    the rest of the players i don't know much about. i think we're gonna get a RB in FA this offseason. Romance would be a good Undrafted pick up too.

    I would love Landry/Kalil/Kolb/Brown!!!

    I like it, but this is what I'm looking at as of right now (without any free agent signings)

    1.) Laron Landry S
    2.) Aaron Ross CB
    3.) Jason Hill WR
    4.) Prescott Burgess OLB
    5.) Marcus Thomas DT (Hoping he'll fall here with his character issues)
    6.) Kasey Studdard OT
    7.) Jared Zabransky QB

    The first two rounds are good, but after that it is just downhill, really fast...until the 7th at least.

    okay seeing how Ryan Kalil is my favorite for our 2nd round selection, i doubt he's there when we select. I was thinking if he doesn't go 1st round. we've go oakland, detroit, CLEVELAND, tampa bay, arizona, and washington to worry about.

    With Bently being injured...is his career done? i think the browns would be smart to pick him up.

    I think if he's still there when the browns are up to pick we should consider trading up for him. I don't normally want us to trade up at all..we need those picks but...in this case i think we should...he'd solidify our C position for a decade, we have pitts and weary as guards, and just have to worry about winston and spencer..next years tackle class will be awesome so whether spencer comes back healthy enough or not we can pick up a stud for opposite him next year.

    We have the 7th pick in the 2nd round. That's worth 510 points. throw in our 5th round pick worth 38 pts and that's a total of 548 pts. Clevelands 2nd rounder is worth 550 points.

    While Peterson is the very popular pick for the Browns, there is still a chance Jamarcus Russell or Joe Thomas could fall to them...would they take either over Peterson? If so..they might like to grab our 5th rounder and then select Michael Bush for their Running Back with the 2nd rounder of ours.

    I doubt Peterson would fall to us anyways...some one would trade up with washington would be my guess or minny might select him.

    Think about the browns having Jamarcus Russell or Joe Thomas AND Michael Bush.

    Think about us having Laron Landry AND Ryan Kalil. I think we're going to get our RB in FA this year...maybe Henry or Green?

    Again if Kalil is there in the 2nd I'd give the Browns our 5th rounder to take him. We would most likely have used that 5th rounder on a project Tackle or Guard...or maybe a cornerback that wouldn't beat out faggins.

    Anybody else on board!!!!!???? lets go get landry and kalil....and then how bout Kolb.

    Kalil wont be there..prolly late 1st round now...but dare to dream. I would like to get Ramonce in there in the 4th. We need a poor man's Reggie Bush. We also need a poor man's VY....

    Off the top of my head, this draft seems better. I assume we trade Carr for a 3rd.

    1. Adrian Peterson
    2. Brandon Meriwether
    3. Andy Alleman
    3b. Steve Smith
    4. Daymeion Hughes (combine hurt his stock)
    5. Chris Henry
    6. Josh Wilson
    7. Garrett Wolfe

    It's hard enough for a center to go in the first and Kalil is a ZBS center.

    What teams would want a C like Kalil? Particularly the late 1st and early 2nd rd teams. What teams are likely in taking him/ need a center?

    The picks look good, but it still does not help us in two of our weakest positions, D-line and WR. We have Mario and Dre, but they need help. I can tell your a true Houstonian by picking Kolb, although we do need someone to groom.

    Off the top of my head:

    Texans
    Packers
    Washington

    The Packers drafted a C in the third round last year and Casey Rabach of the Redskins is 29. The Broncos got Greg Eslinger in the 6th round, but he may be Nalen's successor. The Falcons are scrapping the ZBS, I believe.

    The good news is Green Bay probably won't take kalil in the 1st..neither will washington. redskins dont have their 2nd either so that helps.

    arizona, cleveland, detroit, oakland???? i've seen a few mocks w/ kalil going to baltimore in the 1st....any chance?

    do y'all think we may be looking at some of atlanta's OL if any are FA this year or next?

    How's this...I think it addresses needs and plans for the future...

    We trade our 2nd and 5th rd picks to move up a few spots in the 2nd round.

    1. Laron Landry FS LSU 6'1 213 lbs
    2. Ryan Kalil C USC 6'3 299 lbs
    3. Kevin Kolb QB Houston 6'3 218 lbs
    4. Tarell Brown CB Texas 5'11 190 lbs
    5. -traded away to move up for Kalil-
    6. Louis Leonard DT Fresno St. 6'4 320 lbs
    7. Ed McCarthy OL Yale 6'5 302 lbs

    Biggest weaknesses on team imo are Secondary, OL, and DL.
    our secondary will be much improved w/ this. OL gets a project guy in McCarthy..who is versatile and played every position along the line at yale. Kalil should be the C for the next decade. DL gets a run stopper and big plug in leonard.
    Kolb carries a clip board for 1-2 years steps in when he's ready, carr's gone, and our oline is working.

    That leaves runningback which i think we'll address in FA with someone like green or henry.
    Linebacker sadly has not been addressed and we need to do something about WR...but we can't fix everything in the draft now can we!?

    I'll take a shot at My Ideal Off Season.

    FA -- Travis Henry RB, Donte Stallworth WR;

    Trade: 8th pick for Buffalo's 12th pick and their 3rd round pick. Not sure why they'd need to be at 8 unless Peterson's there, but there would be real value for the Texans at 12.

    1) 12th pick Levi Brown LT -- The real question is how does Levi grade out compared to Baker, Long and Gaither who will be in the 08 draft. If he's overvalued, we should sign Petticoat (sp) and draft Landry. At 12 though, we'd get great value.

    2) A Ross or D Hughes CB -- If we could draft Khalil in the 2nd and still get Hughes in the 3rd I'd be all for that.

    3) Steele - C

    3) from Buffalo Rufus Alexander OLB

    4) Kareem Brown DT -- I thought this was a typo but the guy had 11 sacks, 14 tackles for a loss, and is noted as a run stopper;

    5) Josh Gattis FS

    6) Mkristro (sp) Bruce DE Wash St -- or enter your favorite Mark Anderson wanna be here;

    7) Bishop UCLA LB; Michael Roe CB; David Ball NH WR or Jordan Palmer QB UTEP;

    That would leave a line up of:

    LT - Levi
    LG - Pitts/Weary
    C - Steele/McKinney with Flannagan released;
    RG - Winston/Weary
    RT - Winston/Spencer

    This would be a young, 6 man rotation (with all 6 drafted by the Texans on day 1) with McKinney and Salaam as mentors. I think we'd actually be able to just leave this line alone for the next 5 years and let them get some reps together and grow as a unit.

    WR Johson / Stallworth / Walters / Mathis

    I actually think Stallworth would be an upgrade over Moulds. Donte had some monster games last year and if healthy would be an asset. I can't see drafting a WR this draft. A stud #2 WR is a luxury we probably don't get right now.

    RB Henry / Dayne / Taylor / Lundy

    FB Leach / Cook

    TE Daniels / Putzier

    QB Carr / Sage

    The only ? mark on that offense would be Carr. It'd be the best OL in team history that should open some holes for even mediocre backs to run through. The WRs would have much more time to get open.

    Defense

    DE Mario
    DT Kareem Brown / TJ
    DT Maddux / Weaver
    DE Weaver / Babin / Kalu / Bruce

    For me, there's no reason Maddux shouldn't start for the Texans and starting him shouldn't be a reflection on the line. He earned it. He was a 4th round pick of Jax; he had some legal issues and dropped in the draft b/c of it. And yes, he was selling furniture last year. He was paid $79,000 last year by the Texans, less than probably several on this board. It's a great story if you ask me and if he can beat out the rest, he should start.

    OLB Greenwood
    MLB Ryans
    OLB Alexander

    CB D Robinson
    CB Ross or Hughes
    Nickel CB Faggins / Roe

    FS Gattis
    SS Earl / Brown

    Our secondary would hopefully suddenly become an asset. And that front 7 should be able to stop the run if not totally get after the QB.

    The only real question marks on that whole team would be QB, RB, DE and FS. I would go RB and FS 1 and 2nd round in 08, with maybe a QB in the 3rd and a DE in FA. And wa la, the Texans should compete for the playoffs in 08 and beyond.

    I'm glad you guys know how good LaRon is going to be. This guy is going to be one of the best defensive players the NFL has seen over the past 5+ years. He's outstanding.

    Petrino isn't running the ZBS, so as far as I know, Atlanta is going to dump a few of their linemen.
