    Hopefully Stewart or Mendenhall falls to 18th if not then we need to trade back and pick up a 2nd rounder.:wild:

    none of our backups hold 2nd round dice unless you throw in Sage.

    He'll likely fall and when he does it will be a huge gain for the Texan organization.

    Hypothetical.

    Stewart, Clady, Otah, Mendenhall, and Phillips are all available. Who do you have?

    I think I'd have to go with Clady or Otah here.

    Houston, again.
    Clady or Ohta (I kind of lean to Ohta), but I do like Stewart,s type of game.

    Since Gibbs is onboard now I'm not so sure he would pick either one of these 2 LT's. Do they fit his mold for a ZB scheme LT? :thinking:

    I'd go with a LT, then Phillips/Stewart. I wasn't on Stewart going into this year, but I've seen 3/4 of his games this year and he's pretty damn good.

    From what I've read, I think either of them would be able to adapt as it a lot of people write that both of these guys's footspeed is well above average. Sam Baker would probably be the best blue-chip fit for a ZBS scheme, but lots of people think that his injuries are concerning. I figured I would go with the two names I've seen get thrown around the most on this forum.

    But you're right, there's a great possibility that neither of those LT's would fit the mold for Gibbs' scheme.

    But I asked what YOU would do.

    If you got a Top-10 talent fall to you at 18, you gotta snatch him up.

    So Kenny Phillips, ftw!

    However, I'd take Clady if Phillips wasn't there, but you really have no idea which LTs will fall in this draft.

    I'd take Clady Regraurdless. The only other way would be to gamble that Collins , Baker and Hill will fall and you move back to the board and take THE RB or CB whoever is the greatest value at the bottom of the first. FS is not a glaring need.
    #2 CB, OLT and RB are. The don't come up with a #2 Cb, everyone in our division is going to light our defense up.
