    I'd prefer to use the 3rd on a CB that could help immediately. And the 5th on OL
    Use the 6th on DL. We can get an UDFA to replace Blue

    IDK, vets have been cheap lately in the trade market unless it's a pro bowl talent, and this past year Peterson didn't make it.

    I think that's highly doubtful, they are already paying Chandler Jones premium pass rusher money, they have Peterson on a very friendly contract with how the market currently is. I don't see them trading a player of his caliber on that contract for another pass rusher they would have to pay big money to, especially with them having the first pick, so they can land a premier pass rusher on the cheap

    I'd be happy with picking any player in the 3rd, mainly because we don't have a 3rd lol

    Why do we not have a third?

    The DT trade was for a fourth and swapping 7th

    This off season and draft discussion is going to be torturous, long and frustrating.

    I am actually looking forward to it for once. This is the first time in a lot of years where 95% of our draft and off season discussion won't revolve around trying to find a QB

    Since this is fantasy island, I'll either have RAC start playing assignment football on the DL with our current guys, or trade JJ and JD and with the capital netted, get an interior Dlineman that can push the pocket and have Mercilus, Ejiafor (bring in another rotational DE) and have them all play assignment football. We'll have fewer sacks but be playing sounder football. Teams starting baiting JJ and JD into backside pursuit and simply ran at their vacated spot or bootlegged that way. Time to get back to fundamental football on defense. And yes, lets get a cb or two that can play press coverage.

    As you know, the Astros season thread here is quite enjoyable. Looking forward to discussing balls and strikes again.

    Exactly, that's why Clowney would be more valuable as a tag and trade commodity. The picks he would return, could give the Texans the necessary picks to combine with a package surrounding Mercilus (actually like this option that someone else mentioned) that allows the Texans to maintain their RD1 and RD2 positions. Not to mention, there should still be a pick inside the first 4 rounds left to work with.

    Before anyone screams that I've essentially given Clowney and Mercilus for Peterson and a pick or 2....Peterson brings more to this defense's overall play in 2019 than either Clowney or Mercilus would, IMHO.

    Would rather trade Mercilous.

    Badger is over hyped. He’s ok and I would sign him as long as it’s a fair market deal that pays him as a slightly above average safety which is what he is. Would rather go after Earl Thomas.

    Jackson is on the wrong side of thirty. Only resign if it’s a short reasonable contract. He played great this year but I wouldn’t pay him

    Go after Jake Mathews and Zack Martin and Matt Paradis in FA. Tell Mathews to come home to his family. Tell Martin to come play with his brother. Go BPA in draft.

    Jake Matthews isn't a free agent - signed a 5 year 75 million extension earlier this year
    Zack Martin isn't a free agent - signed an extension with the Cowboys earlier this year

    30 is not the demarcation line for DBs that it is for RBs. KJax is almost exactly 1 year older than Thomas. Thomas will also be a lot more expensive.

    Again you are missing the Why would Arizona do it? Just because the Texans are fine making it work, doesn't mean the cardinals are. They have Chandler Jones, and will probably draft another great pass rusher in Bosa. They have 0 need to trade a top 3 corner for an additional pass rusher

    We finished 18th in the league with 43 sacks this year, we are already not good at rushing the passer why give up 2/3 of our best pass rushers? So we can look like Gruden did this season, and just go "Idk why we can't get pressure on the quarterback, I'm sure it has nothing to do with us giving up our best pass rushers..."

    you give up a pass rusher if you can get picks allowing you to draft a starting corner and a starting LT in round one allowing your own regular picks to add to you team needs such as replacement for Clowney if you think Ejiofor not the guy. If this thing breaks just right and it may. 2019 could be draft that is all time best for Texans.
