    Move/merge as needed.

    Why is everyone else able to keep their #1 selection under wraps while we go leaking it everywhere? I remember us announcing the signing of Mario the nifht before the draft as well as Carr being mobbed a week prior.

    I think there's going to be a top pick trade.

    I feel really prepared for the draft this year.

    All the mocking we have been doing on here has me familiar with more prospects than ever.

    No doubt that will all be for nought, when they draft some guy I've never heard of in the 4th round.

    There are multiple scenarios under which I would leave the first round happy, the one I wouldn't be happy with is us taking Mathews at 20 or higher (trade up).

    YES, I am preparing to be disappointed and looking forward to being proven wrong.

    don't know yet, probably not though. I think I'll be working this evening. At least it's from home so I can keep up with what's going on here.

    We could see if Detroit wants our first and second and next year's first....

    Honestly...I don't think I'd be sad.

    I wouldn't be shocked if we drafted a no name in the first round. If they draft another guy i'm unfamilar with like Cushing then i'll have no complaints.

    Over here.
    Not to burst y'all's bubbles, but I have learned my lesson and not concerned myself at all with the draft this year. I don't know who's in it, who I'd want for this team, or whether we should trade up, down, sideways, or diagonally. I will not get upset when I find out who we did get, which will never be who I would've taken (whoever that is). I do still reserve the right to gripe about it 3 or 4 years down the road, though....or as soon as I find out who we got and don't have a clue what I'm talking about. :)

    In my ignorant bliss I will just say, "Draft all the best players!" and be done with it for now.

    We'll talk later. :slapfight:

    Shouldn't this thread be called the Texans Talk War Room?

    To late, I'm already old! LOL

    If I'm not working tonight, I hope to make it. I've never even been to Reliant stadium yet. I need to go sometime just to check it out.

    No. All we're doing is playing War Games with Matthew Broderick.

    Because Carr was as much of a PR selection as it was a personnel selection, and our 2006 #1 pick was contingent on signing prior to the draft. You have to look way back to the 2009 to find another #1 selection, Matt Stafford, who was signed and announced prior to the draft. A rare occurrence, indeed.

    Wasn't Jake Long signed before being drafted by Miami #1 too?

    Nope. The IMSAI 8080 isn't up to the task for TexansTalk's server needs. I'm partial to the W.O.P.R. which also serves K.I.T.T and D.A.R.Y.L.
