OK, here is what I make of what the Texans have done so far. 1) The resigning of Salaam and today's signing of Jordan Black mean that they are NOT looking at Levi Brown. The Texans STILL view Charles Spencer as their LT of the future. With those two guys in the fold they just bought themselves a year to see Charles Spencer is healthy to take over the position. It makes sense, b/c if Spencer IS your guy why spend a top pick on a LT? 2) The Ahman Green signing means the Texans are not going to go after Adrian Peterson, and at this point even if he were available at #8 by some miracle they would look trade down and make a MINT by picking up several picks. 3) The release of Eric Moulds tells me they will definitely draft a WR, and maybe they have their eye on the next Marques Colston later in the draft. I doubt it will be a first day pick unless a very highly touted player falls. 4) The David Carr situation is very interesting. I think they are pretty firm with their asking price (a 3rd round pick) and are holding out until a team gives them what they want. Smart move. Sure enough all of the FA QBs are flying off the market so Carr's value will continue to rise up until the draft. So the move might not be made until draft day. And wouldn't it be ironic if we used Carr to trade up at some point in the draft to draft a QB? Oh, and it's interesting to note the DeMeco has replace Carr's picture up top! So at this point it seems the Texans are setting their sights on one of 3 players for the #8 pick. 1) LaRon Landry - a GLARING need that has not been addressed yet. Now if Ken Hamlin is signed then that changes everything. 2) Brady Quinn - I think this might depend on when the Carr deal gets done. If it's before the draft this is a definite possibility, if not then I don't think so b/c if we take Quinn and still have Carr, Carr's value goes to ZERO with teams knowing we don't want him anymore. 3) Amobe Okoye - I think a much better prospect than Alan Branch. They would love to bring a young stud in here to help their franchise investment Mario Williams to make him shine and prove all the naysayers wrong. But this could also depend on where they want to play Weaver next season. I personally think Quinn will be gone before the #8 pick. All this "he's dropping" talk is a smokescreen. So then to me RIGHT NOW I think LaRon Landry is our guy.
