    OK, nows your chance to show you're a great prognasticator, tell us who you think the Texans take. (Not who do you want them to take!!!)

    Bonus Points: Do they trade up, do they trade down, stay in place, and who do they take.


    I think we trade back and take JJ Watt. Don't know why it just came to me.

    What say you Texans Talkers?????:kitten:

    Forgot to make a gratuitous TE joke......


    "With the first pick in the 2011 NFL Draft the Carolina Panthers trade thier pick to the Houston Texans, Houston is now on the clock......."

    3 minutes later...... "The Houston Texans select Kyle Rudolph with the 1st pick."



    Ticker at the bottom of the TV scrolls: Houston trades thier 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th picks of the 2011 draft, and thier 2nd and 3rd in the 2012 draft along with Arian Foster, and undisclosed conditional 2013 picks.

    I think they will trade down. I'm not sure how far, but I would guess that somewhere between pick 16-50 they will grab a safety or a CB that could convert... likely one of these guys:

    Rahim Moore
    Aaron Williams
    Davon House

    It is my belief that they are determined to upgrade CB through FA but may have some concern since they have no idea if/when that will happen. Given Quin's flexibility and the lack of depth at the safety position, dropping back and grabbing a safety or a tweener will appeal to them. With the wealth of pass rush talent available, I think Phillips will convince them they can get an impact guy or two well beyond the 11th pick.

    That's what I'm thinking. And I think the Cowboys outbid the Texans for Peterson.

    Texans draft board:
    Von Miller
    Patrick Peterson
    Robert Quinn
    Prince Amukamara
    Aldon Smith
    Ryan Kerrigan

    Unless Arizona decides they want nothing to do with Peterson in the NFC altogether.

    Basically, to get Peterson they'd have to move up to five. I can't see Cleveland at six passing on him, even though they took Joe Haden last year.

    To get Miller? Probably have to trade up to the #2 pick.

    Eh, just being silly.

    On a serious note right now I'd say that the Texans would draft Prince Amukamura if it happened today. A lot could change from now though.

    I really hope its not Aldon Smith. Don't know why I feel that way, but I really, really do.

    This looks pretty good to me. If Quinn gets taken at 10 or we pass on him at 11 I will be bitterly disappointed.

    Houston Texans select J.J. Watt, DE from Wisconsin.

    I believe Cameron Jordan goes #9 to the Cowboys or another team that trades with them. With Julio Jones off the board, the Redskins select Aldon Smith. This leaves Watt for us at #11. If we trade down, even slightly, that opens up Minnesota, Detroit or even a team like San Diego (trade up) to snag him.

    Watt will get PLENTY of playing time this season for those worried that he's not a "starter" because of Antonio Smith. Mario will have a banner year this season and sign a longterm contract making Watt-Mario our bookend 3-4 DEs of the future and the foundation of a DOMINANT front 7.

    Texans look to add a 3-4 OLB in the 2nd round or trade up to select one. My eyes are on Brooks Reed for a trade up or Sam Acho if we stay put at #42. Ideally, I would then love to add Chris Carter from Fresno St. in the 3rd as an ILB/OLB guy but I'm afraid he won't be available at #73.

    When it's all said and done, I expect Smith to possibly make a trade down in the first and could easily see him moving up in the 2nd and/or 3rd.
