    Ferguson is getting a lot of publicity. I think we should pick him and sign some GOOD veteran linemen....

    my complaint about winston is that he was part of a line that gave up a school record in sacks to fsu....he was gettin beat like he stole something!

    Winston gave up a total of 2 sacks that game man so please. He has given up a total of 7 the whole year which is 2 less than Ferguson on the year.

    He looked terrible in that game - definitely did not even resemble first round
    material. He's been coming off season-ending injury from last year, so maybe
    he's doing better as the year progresses ?

    im not a d-brick hype man.......my point is, individually giving up 2 sacks in a game, and letting the qb get pressured several other times, isnt something i want to use our number 1 overall first round draft pick on...i havent watched the U play since that game, but i'll pass.......besides.....when two people are basically equal, go with the guy with the cooler name....d-brick it is

    He's certainly been getting better since then, but he still doesnt have 100% of the athleticism back. I don't know what to think on this current crop of Ts. Everyone says its stacked, but a lot of players are either injured, coming off injuries or getting burnt like PBuc.

    1st Round
    Trade down from 1st overall to 5th overall, in turn gaining the 37th overall pick, the 101st overall pick, and a 1st round pick in 2007...
    With the 5th overall pick, we select Mario Williams, DE, North Carolina State...

    2nd Round
    With a few picks to play around with, we use the 33rd overall on Abdul Hodge, LB, Iowa, then use the 37th overall on Daryn Colledge, OT, Boise State...

    3rd Round
    We use the 64th overall pick on Martin Nance, WR, Miami (Ohio), then use the 68th pick (from the Saints) on Joel Klopfenstein, TE, Colorado...

    4th Round
    We use the 97th overall pick on Jason Allen, CB/FS, Tennessee, then select Mark Setterstrom, G, Minnesota with the 101st overall pick...

    5th Round and on
    BPA will make me happy...I addressed most of our needs with our first 4 rounds, so whoever makes the best depth would be the wise choice...

    1. D'Brickashaw Ferguson LT - dont care what nobody says, may not be a big guy, but is the most athletic LT that Ive heard about since Ive been following the draft, about 4 years now. May not be the run blocker you watn right away but you cant teach athleticism, run blocking can be tought, strength can be gained
    2. Leonard Pope TE- hopefully he decides to come out this year. If he does, he is no the best receiver and not the best blocker, but he is the best all-around TE, he is what we have been looking for ever since we passed on Jason Witten for Ben Joppru.
    3. Cedric Griffin CB- six foot three, may be thwe physical nickel corner that we need.
    4. Will Mongomery OG- provides depth at OG and will eventually replace somebody
    5. Best LB available

    Is Brad Smith a senior? If he doesn't work out as a QB, we could also make him the next Randle El. BTW, Smith just passed Antwaan Randle El for most rushing yards for a QB. Why does no one have the Texans drafting a QB? Maybe the guy from UAB or at least a 6th or 7th rounder.

    The same reason that we shouldn't be drafting a RB. We already have enough. Here's an idea, let's fill the holes we have before adding depth.

    I assume you are referring to the whole Virginia line because there is no way that D'Brick has been beaten 9 times this year for sacks. Seth Wand can do better than that in the pros.

    Assume you're talking about Kiwanuka? I've watched him a couple times too, he got really good pressure but (last season anyway) he REALLY needed to work on his tackling technique..may have just been a bad game, I don't know. I wouldn't mind picking him up after a trade down, but that would pretty much guarantee we'd be switching to a 4-3 next season.
