    Would the texans drop back from #15 and take the top safety in the draft since the top pass rushers maybe gone before #15? I would love Rashad Johnson in Houston but I would like to drop back and maybe pick up a possible 2nd or 3rd round pick and go DE in round #2.

    Would be really nice if we somehow landed Unger or Mack in the later rounds (I'd be fine with Luigs too)

    i saw that too. his o-line rankings are uncharacteristic of what i've seen so far. other than Mack dropping to #3 he has Luigus as his number one guard leap frogging Duke Robinson and he has Jason Smith as the #1 OT which is new to me as well.

    from what i've seen the popular pick goes something like this
    1.) Andre Smith/ Micheal Oher
    3.) Eugene Monroe
    4.) Jason Smith

    So they're interesting picks of coarse.

    Is it just me or does this seem like an overall weak class this year?

    Its too bad safety is the worst position in the whole draft. Maybe not a first round pick among them

    That does not automatically mean there will be no good players at the position to come from this class.

    Historically safety was never a position drafted in the 1s round, anyways.

    I'd love some Rashad Johnson in round 2

    The USC fan in me is glad Taylor Mays is comming back but the Texans fans is sad:thinking:

    Don't be sad. He and Eric Berry will be chosen early next year and it might push Kam Chancellor back to us.

    Eric Berry will most likely go top 10 and maybe top 5 and after a good draft this year, I wouldn't be apposed to trading up for him next year.
