    Either of those two receivers fall our way I would be very haPpy. I know we have needs, but top tier talent that falls into your lap can't be ignored.

    1) Peterson
    2) Von Miller
    3) Dareus
    4) Quinn
    5) Trade Down

    Happy

    1) Amukamara
    2) J.J.Watts
    3) Fairley
    4) Phil Taylor - Poor value at #11, but definitely fills a need with quality talent.
    5) Trade Down

    OK

    1) Tyron Smith - Confused, but okay with it.
    2) Bowers - I'm concerned with his knee injury.
    3) A.J. Green - A head scratcher, but definitely an upgrade.
    4) Julio Jones - Same here.
    5) Justin Houston - Poor value at #11, but I can live with it.
    6) Aldon Smith - I'm just not sold on this guy, but I'll be okay with him.

    WR A.J. Green
    DE Marcell Dareus
    OLB Von Miller
    OLB Robert Quinn
    CB Patrick Peterson

    Very Happy

    DE Cameron Jordan
    DE J.J. Watt
    OLB Ryan Kerrigan

    Okay

    WR Julio Jones
    OT Tyron Smith
    DE Da'Quan Bowers
    OLB Aldon Smith
    OLB Justin Houston
    CB Prince Amukamara


    I realize some of those are unrealistic, but I still put them on there for a reason. If a player ain't on this list, then I would be pretty pissed off if we selected him.

    Did you watch Houston in the combine? I did not see one positive thing and that concerns me as I think Texans might reach for him as Quinn should not be there and Ayers in a late first.

    Why would you be unhappy with Fairley? His skillset fits perfectly with what Phillips DE's are suppose to do.

    Combine: a 270 OLB that ran under a 4.7 at the combine and at 267 lbs Houston ran under a 4.6 at his pro day and you found no redeeming qualities?

    Season on field: Houston finished with 10 sacks in the SEC and is one of few 3-4 OLB's that have experience playing the position in college.

    Houston is very underrated. IMHO

    Trading down, getting extra picks and drafting A.Williams would be optimal.

    I consider Williams to be the best S prospect in this draft and would say his game is comparable to last yrs top 10 pick from UT. (Earl Thomas)

    Considering that he's a top pick for a team needing a S. You wouldn't happen to know a team that needed S help would you? LOL

    So would you suggest we select Fairley and move him to a 3-4 DE?? I'd much rather have JJ Watt or Cameron Jordan play that role. Both are much safer selections than Fairley and have just as much upside IMO.

    I view him as a 4-3 DT and a player that Wade could use in "his" 3-4 style defense as a penetrating NT. I'm not saying he's a bad player because he played great last season. I just think Fairley is a boom or bust guy, he's been hyped up a lot, and I don't think he's going to impact as a rookie on our team near as much as everyone else thinks he may. No doubt he's got potential, I just wouldnt be overly excited if we got him.

    I think he's a player that will be happy to get a paycheck, will play tough when he wants to, will draw penalties when he's getting frustrated and shut down, and will be more of a me player than team player. I think there are other players that have more upside and less risk.

    If you watched Houston perform any of the drills for foot movement, balance or following instructions you should have seen what I did. Of course he may be on of those guys that can do well in game but not at combine like Von freaking Miller. I hope neither end of selected by Houston.
