    CB
    S
    DT
    Oline
    QB

    Okay, let me prioritize them:

    1- CB
    1- S
    1- DT
    1- Oline
    1- QB

    no argument, but depth at any of the above positions before qb IMO. qb could be addressed in either of the next two drafts with a higher round pick other than 5+.

    Well lets see

    1. FS/SS ..... IMO these take time to develop so i say maybe F/A

    2. G/C our interior D line is soft but i think out Interior O line is even softer

    3. CB dunta and reeves both might be gone i could even say this could be #2

    4. i throw a curve ball out here and say Runing back

    IMo we need alot of fixes

    DT
    WR
    Kick retuner


    well not to many holes

    this years draft should be deep at Safety and DT. Also i expect a lot of underclassmen to come out especially if this is the last year they can get paid.

    personally id go safety, not because its a def need but i really dont want another dline bust.

    Taylor Mays or Josh Pinkard out of USC Eric Berry out of Tenn or Earl Thomas from Texas. one of them should be available when we pick.

    Ok, now step 3. Which of the above do you stand the best chance of addressing in free agency (if any)?

    The draft and free agency used properly can fix all of that in one off-season in most cases. Anyone who says different probably works for or has an interview scheduled with the Houston Texans.

    I have a tough time with this one because it's hard to tell where the bad coaching ends and where the lack of talent starts.

    Isn't it? Last time it was so easy! We could all clearly see that the bad coaching was doing nothing with the bad players that the bad GM was (generally) drafting. Of course he was getting his information from our bad scouting department and all of them were being paid by our bad (not his fault) newbie owner. You couldn't get it wrong. If someone asked you what was wrong with the Texans back then you could just say "Yes" and you were right!

    And yet they went 7-9. Certainly not non-losing like this stellar collection, but only one game back. It almost makes one pause and consider...

    ============

    On another point, they better add a MLB to the draft list. They might have to pass on a defensive tackle or safety, but Demeco will still want paid so they better draft his replacement.

    Looks like history's repeating itself.

    Draft another Defensive Tackle.

    DT. D linemen take time to bring up to speed. We better get at least two space eaters. Mays at SS would be nice, but I don't see him as a FS. Doesn't have the natural ball-hawk skills.

    I'm tired of building through the draft with project players, and signing terrible free agents to high dollar contracts.

    Let's just go get Vince Wilfork, OJ Atogwe, Carlos Rogers, Jahri Evans, and Darren Colledge.

    Hey.. it could happen. :texflag:

    This team blows at drafting interior D-lineman. I hope we never draft one again. Lets try something else
