    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?

    Great info. I'd take any of those eight guys. Maybe Carlos Rogers will sneak into the top 12.

    Im kinda surprised to see Mike Williams in the list of the 8. Thought Cass didn;'t like him all that much.

    Plan A would be fine by me, as would Plan B; which may be the better course of action althought not the sexier one.

    I guess I'll put the disclaimer up:

    This person may have been trying to smoke screen us, but has been extremely reliable in the past.

    P.S. Williams wont last to us anyway

    This scenario certainly makes a lot of sense, Carlos Rogers could also jump into the top 12 to make their scenario work out.

    He very well might. I just have a hard time seeing 3 CBs taken in the top 12 this year

    Interesting that there's no Marcus Spears on the list after McClain was pimping him on the radio today, but nevertheless, I'd be happy with any of those 8...

    Of those 8, I'll say again that I'd hope it wasnt C. Williams. Not that he wont be a good back in the NFL, but we already have an undersized, slashing, injury prone back in DD.

    If you are even going to put Edwards on your list at 13. Why would you bother putting him at 8 behind Williams and Williamson?? Makes no sense to me.

    I thought that this was going to be a defense heavy draft, and that list only had 2 defensive players.

    you have a point. and we could still use DD on 3rd down for his hands. I just would prefer a 1-2 punch of a power back and slash back than a slash/slash combo. Its not like I'm gonna boo if they pick Carnell, I would just rather have 1 of the other 7 on the list if at all possible. If he can stay healthy, I see him being very productive in the NFL

    I was being halfway sarcastic with that comment...While I wouldn't hate it if we took Cadillac, I would rate him towards the end of that list of 8...I wouldn't mid having DD in a complimentary role if we took someone like Benson, who is more of a power guy, but you're right, Caddy and DD are very similar...

    I would definetly boo if they pick carnell. I don't even see why he's rated so high. R. Brown seems like the complete back, Benson's never going to be flashy or be a consistent homerun threat, but he will consitently ram it down your throat, wear you down, and give you the tough yards. Carnell seems too questionable to me to be taken that high.
