    Heh, my friend is foaming and is turning in his Texans fan card if they dont draft 7 O-lineman in this draft.

    Im kinda tired....its been 5 years and we still dont have an average O-line. I was in favor of Peterson, getting another LB or a Safety (God knows a Safety would be nice).

    But im tired of the complete breakdowns in Pass protection and the run game dying out IF it gets started at all.

    Best OL available if we were drafting today. But if we were to win out of the top 10 then I would go with either Landry or Nelson.

    I think we go Safety if those are the choices. The line needs to get healthy and maybe we can get one thru later rounds or FA.

    I think a need for a center is rising up the needs list.

    Still think we need to take a FS in round 1 or 2.

    Houston, again.
    It's a tough call IMO which is worse, the O-line or the secondary. However, everything starts with a teams core and that is the lines. If we never get a handle on that, we will never be a team to be recond with regardless of who is at QB, RB, WR or any other position you can think of, so IMO we have to get the O-line fixed. Before anyone jumps in and says, "But we have drafted guys last year" and one is hurt and may not come back and the other is playing poorly. We need a Tackle and a center in a bad way.
