    In Rick Smith I trust. Great draft so far. I am psyched that we have addressed our LT, CB, and RB needs in that order. I wanted 1st round quality LT and we got great value in Slaton and Adibi especially. Who else is with me. I have had a huge smile all day today because of our picks. I can't wait till preseason to see these guys in action.

    What a great change from the vomit inducing drafts under cASSerley.

    Yea, I haven't been posting much but that should not be interpreted in me not being here and reading all this. This weekend has been great. Disagreements, agreements, we are all pulling for the same thing, and yes, Casserly has left the building.

    2006 is my favorite draft since we've seen the results, but 2008 might be even better. stay tuned.

    We traded down to get who we wanted and added Slaton with that extra pick. Color me happy with this draft.....

    I happy with this draft, we are getting great depth within our team with starters and back ups. I guess we are just missing that DE to compliment Mario, but we should be good against the run this year.

    The Texans may target DE Tommy Blake in the 7th Round or even as an Undrafted Rookie Free Agent. If they do and they are able to get him and Okam to return to their previous forms then the Texans 2008 Draft would be their best ever.

    All the picks so far are ones I agree with. The RB, though, is not gonna be a full time starter who can run up the middle a lot. He's to small for that. But running him to the outside and lining him up as a reciever, kick returns, things like that he should be really good.

    I don't see where he is our future full time RB. But, I've been wrong before.

    When we make the playoffs this year or next, we will look back at this draft as the one that put us over the edge. The additions of Duane Brown, Alex Gibbs, and Steve Slaton makes me VERY excited about our run game and offense in general. Our passing game was already good, I can't wait to see it with a real rushing attack.

    We are adding the necessary depth required of playoff caliber teams.

    Kudos to Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak in building a legit NFL playoff contender in less than 3 years after taking over a team decimated by crappy personnel moves and coaching.

    The Texans haven't had a winning season yet, but anybody with any football sense can see that this organization is on the right track and it's becoming commonplace to see excellent moves being executed.

    Great draft!

    If this draft was a woman I would marry it and have kids with it.

    Be prepared for Kiper to give us a c- though.

    This has clearly been a Draft to fill needs and we've met almost all of the
    them, on paper atleast: OLT, CB, RB, & NT for DLine. We've even got more
    depth at LB & perhaps SS - Talib. And we used a 6th round pick in this Draft awhile back to get a center from the Broncos. The one remaining need we still have not met in this Draft is a weakside edgerusher, but we have 2 more picks and sometimes a team gets lucky in the 6th or 7th round.
