    This kid has Amukamura's Avalanche written all over him, He is with out a doubt the player i want in 2011's draft.

    The next Reevis imo.

    0:16 is what i want.

    Plus ive been looking and this upcoming draft seems to leave alot to be desired when it comes to safety talent.

    A cool, unique, and interesting name? Check

    Wears #21? Check

    A standout college prospect? Check

    Of Nigerian descent? Check




    Yup, I'm pretty sure the guy will be a star. :D

    Peterson is the best CB in this draft.

    Prince is good and plays a physical brand of football. I'm not sure how that relates to the NFL with the 5 yd chuck rule.

    He would immediately be the best CB on the team.

    agreed, but Rick Smith would have move up even higher than he would to land a Prince :specnatz:

    I view Peterson and Amukamara as 1a. and 1b. Peterson is the better NFL player, and Amukamara is the better CB IMO. Both will be great CBs in a few years.

    And both will be gone by the time we pick unless we just tank the rest of the season and I don't see that happening with Kubiak trying to keep his job. We could trade up for Amukamara but I don't think Rick Smith will go that route. I see us drafting in the 12-14 range and would rather have Amukamara. I think Peterson falls a little on the draft boards after the combine.

    I think Peterson is easily the #1 CB in this draft. Amukamura is probably #2.

    But I have also been impressed with his teammate, Dennard. That kid can play too.

    That looks exactly like how our Dbs are taught to play (10 yard cushings), except he reads QBs and doesn't fall down. As of right now I want either Amukamura or Peterson (who I think can be the next Charles Woodson). I also think these are players the front office will actually look at and scout.

    I'm guessing that the Texans will be drafting in the 12-14 range and that Amukamara will easily go in the top 10. What would it cost the Texans to move up on draft day to the 6-7 spot and have a chance at getting Amukamara and would Smithiak have the balls to trade up. Usually I don't like for a team to trade up like this on draft day but the 2011 draft seems like a weak draft, the overall talent level just isn't there. If they were ever to trade up thus losing a 2nd round pick to do so this would be the draft to do it since the overall talent level is poor in 2011.
