    If you are reading this John I want my cut. :shades:

    His article
    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/fb/texansfront/5723003.html

    Your worst nightmare is that all the players you covet could be gone.

    You know that Long, defensive end Chris Long, defensive end Vernon Gholston, defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey, running back Darren McFadden, quarterback Matt Ryan, defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis, offensive tackle Ryan Clady, offensive tackle Branden Albert, offensive tackle Chris Williams, defensive end Derrick Harvey, running back Rashard Mendanhall, linebacker Keith Rivers, cornerback Leodis McKelvin and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could all be gone.

    That's 15 players selected. Two more will go before you pick. You don't believe in miracles, but you do cross your fingers wishing and hoping for some good luck.

    You close your eyes so tightly trying to imagine a team picking quarterback Brian Brohm before you. You want running back Jonathan Stewart and offensive tackle Jeff Otah to be taken before No. 18. You're hoping cornerback Mike Jenkins will be taken early.

    Or a receiver - any receiver.

    Tried to rep you but have to "spread it around". This is a good summary of what we all have been struggling with. You should be complimented John thinks highly of your thoughts.

    John, if you are reading, my choice at this point (in the scenario above) would be:

    Antoine Cason CB 6-0, 182 Arizona

    If Chris Williams falls to us, take 'em. If not, trade out of round 1 if we have a good offer. Otherwise, I'd say pick Kenny Phillips. I'm not very excited about this draft for us.

    most of those we "covet" per the article are top ten locks....kinda not reasonable to be bent about those guys.
