    Everybody is in Love with Thomas, and I think he would be a good first round pick. But I keep hearing that the Arizona Cardinals will draft him at all costs. I thnk they need an o-lineman just as bad as us. They have the same record as us so I don't know who holds the tie-breaker. I even heard that they would trade up a pick or two to get him. The Lions and the Raiders need a quarterback, so I don't think they would draft him. So basically it will come down to the cards and the Texans.

    Right now Joe Thomas should be Houston's pick for BPA.

    Really time to stop screwing around with the O-line. Carr or not, it needs to become a strength

    I think the Raiders would draft Thomas before a QB.

    Maybe, but remember that they got burned with Gallery. The guy is a bust.

    The Raiders have Aaron Brooks, the worst starting QB in the NFL. They will take either Smith or Quinn.



    ........... Yes Aaron Brooks is worse than David Carr.

    Al Davis has been with the Raiders since 1966.

    In that time they have drafted 3 QBs (68,80,91) with their first pick.

    The last one they drafted was Todd Marinovich (USC) in 1991. He was a bust and Davis proclaimed that the Raiders would never again draft a QB with their #1 while he was the owner.

    I expect them to draft Thomas or Johnson.

    I agree with what you said about Brooks. The only reason he is in the league is cuz he is Michael Vick's cousin.

    But I just dont think they will do it.

    We did'nt take D'brick this year.(I was begging for this guy) We took 2 T's on the first day. We are not gonna take an O-lineman in the first round...

    If they didn't take D'Brick they won't take Thomas. Look for S, CB, LB.

    your right about that, how about the Texans trade David Carr to the Raiders for their 2nd & 3rd picks like Casserly traded our 2005 2nd & 3rd rd. picks for Phillip Buchanon :brickwall

    What if they valued Mario higher than D'brick? Which seems to be what they did. Perhaps they will go for Thomas if available?
