Any thoughts on him and what it would take to get another pick high enough to land him?
Calling the UT haters....
Unlikely to grab another draft pick. Texans would have to trade down to 7 or 8 and take him there.
Sure if we traded the first pick down to the 7-10 range. He helps fill a need.
Huff wouldn't be a bad pick by trading down that far but I don't think that anyone would want to trade to the #1 from that range unless the raiders really decide they want Young bad other than that I don't see us moving down far enough.
I wouldn't give up the #1 for a shot at Huff unless it came with multiple picks beyond just a high 1st rounder this year.
def. a quality FS for the team to look at if we somehow trade down to 8-9 and vernon is gone
Like Huff but not sure I'd be willing to trade Bush or Williams for the shot at him. Of course, if we can pull another great first day pick, would be interested in hearing more ...
what about their #7 and Moss?? for our #1 overall. Would you do that?
yes but CAP would make it near-impossible
Perhaps. I think you have to have a deal that lands you multiple picks, perhaps some in the next draft.
I think Huff is a great player.I think we should try and get him.He hits like a truck and he reads the ball well.I am just worried about our Defense.
We have a pick high enough to get him but we won't use it.
I concur...Huff is a special player that can play anywhere in the secondary...He is fast, has great coverage skills, and is a great hitter...I'd gladly pass over Bush and Williams for Huff in a trade down since he fills a huge need for us...Huff has the potential to be one of, if not the, best FS in the league...
So if by some miracle we did get Huff, where would he play? At UT he was mostly a SS, I think I would like him in a position to make plays, but Interceptions where not a strongpoint, the entire UT secondary had 10.
Huff is a very good DB, easily the best in this draft, but I wouldn't want to give up on Bush and Mario to get him. Our defense definitely needs some help, but Mario Williams is the best defensive playmaker in this draft and if we want to improve the defense he is definitely our best option.
As a side note, no one is going to trade up to #1 to take Vince Young. No one else values him that highly and would take him at #1 much less give up the huge package it will require to get up to the #1 pick, Leinart and Bush are the only two players any team would trade up to #1 to get.
Huff is a great player at a need position for the Texans. However, it would require the them to draft a UT player, and we all know how likely that is.
Not the first time I've read a teary-eyed "Longhorns don't get no respekt" diatribe on this board. At first I thought it was all just a lot of sour grapes, but then, while browsing the internet, I came across these very troubling photos.
Kubiak, a known Aggie, defiantly flashes the "gig em" sign at a UT basketball game out of utter contempt. Worse, it's hard to tell, but he's actually burning a UT flag in his other hand.
And worst, and I do mean, most terrifying of all:
I nearly **** myself when I saw this one. Turns out I was wrong, just dead wrong: we aren't merely an NFL team whom for all of our drafting mistakes has tried to draft the best player available to us as determined by need. No, no, we are little more than an underground nine-figure TWELFTH MAN FOUNDATION who conspires to rid the world and especially the NFL of Longhorns everywhere!
I also found a shot of Casserly urinating off of the bell tower back in his college days, but I didn't want to get sued, so trust me when I say ... it's out there man.
The conspiracy theorists were right, and I don't know how I am going to sleep tonight. If these photos don't prove it in your mind, I don't know what will. They are destroying our beloved team, man!! First Derrick Johnson, then Vince Young, and what's next? Did we even invite Major Applewhite in for a workout? I want justice, and I don't mean Richard. I mean payback, and I want it now. The mayor should bring in the UT football team and line them up outside of Reliant Stadium and have everyone in this organization from the top on down oublically kiss the butts of each and every player as penance. Let Vince wear his pajamas, he won't need a suit today. Moreover, I'm going to create a Draft Longhorns petition and I want each of you to sign it, k? Let me know.
Definitely one of the funniest posts ever on here.
