    Why would the texans draft Ryan Mallett? We would be using our first round pick on an unproven QB when we arlready have a decent QB.

    Easy bro. Just stating he's on my wish list. QBs have been known to fall in the draft. I know Matt is decent but I'd like to have a young QB ready to groom because honestly if Matt doesn't get it done next season we really gotta start looking for a guy that's ready to win.

    But you draft a guy to groom in the late rounds not the first. Mallet is a sure first rounder. With all the team needs right now, that would be a wasted pick. And Matt can't get it done with one of the worst defenses in the history of the NFL. Not even Manning or Brady can. If the defense don't improve next year, expect another 6-10 season.

    Don't get me wrong, if my GM thinks a guy like Locker or Mallett is the real deal, I don't have a problem with them drafting either one of them. But they better trade Matt for a first rounder or at least a second. Basically, the team would be targeting to be good in a couple seasons not this one coming up.

    Hell no on Pryor. But he is staying in school next year. No to Mallett, no to Tucker, yes to Peterson, Chas Henry and Blackmon.

    Aj Green - Georgia

    Von Miller - Texas A&M

    Roc Carmichael - Virginia Tech


    the 3 qb's you listed will be awful in the nfl.

    Stan Humphries also went to a super bowl. Doesn't make him a very good QB. Also, That was the only year that Chandler passed over 3,000 yrds in a year. Matt has done it 3 years in a row. And Chandler never played all sixteen games in a year. Not once.

    I have AJ Green, Blackmon and Julio Jones on my wish list.

    For some reason I can't help but think, how about we draft offense this year because no matter what our D will be jacked up going through a transition year, so lets just try to blow teams off the score board each week. It got us 6 wins this year......

    I'd like to add

    Julio Jones WR Alabama
    Casey Matthews LB Oregon - with the switch to the 3-4 defense this would be a good pick up.

    I agree with this. Plus we just have to much inconsistency with Walter and Jones.

    Does anyone have an idea what kind of draft prospect Casey Matthews is. Like where is he projected to go?

    Don't think he is good a prospect as Big Brother.

    Eyeballing him he looks much smaller.

    Little Matthews is indeed smaller and not as talented. He's stepped his game up this past year though. He's now an NFL player. I think he's a more traditional LB though and not quite the hybrid that Clay III is. I'm guessing he's about a 4th-5th round pick right now, with one final game and workouts still left. Bloodlines will also count for something.

    I think he's similar to former USC linebackers Kaluka Maiava or Lofa Tatupu. He's not the biggest or fastest, but he's just a football player. He's in the right spot and makes plays. I think he's a guy that will be above average for most of his career and has the possibility to have a few very good seasons, but for the most part will be a very solid starter on a good defense.
