    I really struggled with the Texans selection and I had to change my mock up three different times after I received info on certain players and/or teams, but I'm pretty happy with the results of this one.

    I did find out that there is more than one team who likes S. Weatherspoon more than Rolando McClain and Kansas City at 5 could be the trade up spot. I also expect the Giants at 15 to be a trade up spot as well as I think they will try and move back.

    Good on ya LZ, just say no to Mathews in the first.

    I'll be happy if we get a chance at Wilson at 20.

    I think your right about Weatherspoon too, I think there are some that see the athletic limitations of McClain as pigeon holing him as a 3-4 only ILB.

    Actually, a couple of teams I spoke with today were really questioning his body type and toughness. They said when they saw him at the combine he had a ridiculously smooth body and wasn't cut up or athletic looking at all for his size. That can be a big red flag for some teams.

    Are you talking Wilson here? Maybe McCourty or Kareem Jackson would be a better fit?

    The classic debate over which tape is important. The measuring tape or the video tape.

    BTW I believe we are talking about McClain's body.

    That was meant to be about Rolando McClain.

    Ok Do you think Wilson a better fit for the Texans than McCourty or Jackson?

    I think that Jackson may be the best fit for the Texans because of the school and the experience.

    I prefer Matthews, but like Wilson as well. With that said, I am assuming your mock and the whispers that you hear are two different things, but who do you expect us to target at 50 for RB - Best, Tate or Gerhart - should this scenario not play out?

    In his mock, Gerhart is already gone... so I figure he might be thinking we are down to Tate or Best.... maybe Dwyer?

    Well, he's already got Gerhardt gone at 32. So. I think he's out.

    Did my qualifier not come through in my statement? EDIT: It may have helped if I included the word not. Thanks.

    No.

    It really didn't.

    I read this through 4-5 times trying to figure out what qualifier you were talking about. And then I saw it. But from the way that was written, I really didn't divorce what you were asking from LZ's mock as it stood.

    Lance, what kind of chance does Wilson have to be an immediate upgrade over what Dunta gave us last year?

    I think Jackson is solid, I just don't think he's a first rounder. I do think that McCourty and Wilson are both fits for sure.

    Out of those three, I would say Tate and Gerhardt with Hardesty definitely a possibility as well although his injuries are a big concern to me.

    He's still a rookie so it probably won't be an upgrade, but I do think he can have some games where he is a little better in man to man than Dunta was at times.

    Is anyone else leaning towards a trade back with San Diego? You know they have to value Mathews pretty highly. I say hold Mathews for a ransom, trade back w/SD and go CB/RB/DT.

    Who's coming with me?
