Supposedly heres how things shake out. The Texans are targeting 8 players to take at #13. In No Particular Order: 1) Derrick Johnson, LB Texas 2) Shawne Merrimen, LB Maryland 3) Carnell Williams, RB Auburn 4) Ronnie Brown, RB Auburn 5) Cedric Benson, RB Texas 6) Mike Williams, WR USC 7) Troy Williamson, WR South Carolina 8) Braylon Edwards, WR Michigan This, coupled along with probable picks of Aaron Rodgers, Alex Smith, Antrel Rolle, and Pac Man Jones makes this 12 players that are probable to go in the top 12 picks. Up on the clock, the Houston Texans. The rise in stock for Demarcus Ware may put the Texans in a position to select one of the top 8 players on their board. Currently, the money is on Demarcus Ware going to the Cowboys at 11 or Chargers at 12. This, coupled along with the QB and CB's likely to go in the top 12 would open up room for one of the targeted 8 players for the Texans; where of course they would take that player. So lets say plan A fails...Maybe Ware does go? or Maybe someone else falls to 13...like Antrel Rolle perhaps? this is where plan B comes in. If the Texans trade down, it will be for one reason only, the top 8 on the board are gone. The more interested the team is in moving up to take a player, the better odds there will be to trade back. If a trade back does occur, it may behoove the Texans to strike a deal with a team like Cincinnati and move back to take their top Offensive Tackle on the board. Not Barron Not Brown You guessed it, Khalif Barnes out of Washington. Sorry to ruin the surprise...maybe NL Scouting is bluffing (yea right) Whether this is the plan or not, one thing is for sure. In around 16 hours, we will know who the newest member of the Houston Texans will be. Comments?
