    first off, obviously i'm a huge reggie nelson fan. i'd take him at 10 if the texans had to. my question is:

    a) how far down do you think the texans can go if they trade down and still be able to get nelson?

    b) who would be willing to trade up what would likely be the package. if peterson falls to 8, i'm sure he'll fall to 10, falcons are almost certainly getting landry and i doubt the dolphins take him (only way he's gone is if someone trades up)?

    c) assuming the texans stay at 10, do you think they take nelson or brown or other (please specify)

    ideally i'd love for the texans to trade down and acquire more picks and regain some more picks from the schaub trade. (which i love btw)

    Now, who knows!? This organization when it comes drafting makes my head ache! This year is no exception. I was hoping they would stay put & not get cute.........oh well! I still think they gave up too much on this trade, & for an organization who seem to be charitable to other franchises. I guess Smith thinks that there are plenty of "off-the-street talents waitin to be pluck.:confused: Anyway, I hope to be proven wrong & that Matt S. will be a great QB for this team, or else we will see a new coach/GM in the near future!:joker:

    Well obcourse i think it actually puts us into a better situation than before. I say this because...
    10. Houston Texans
    11. San Francisco 49ers
    12. Buffalo Bills
    13. St. Louis Rams
    14. Carolina Panthers
    15. Pittsburgh Steelers
    16. Green Bay Packers

    Now you look and see Buffalo at 12 wants a RB real bad and if Peterson is there it could cost them
    10 = 1300

    12 = 1200
    108= 80
    140= 39

    then the Panthers rb situation is starting not to look too good.
    10 = 1300

    14 = 1100
    78 = 205

    then there is the Packers who we know has knowone really all that good
    10 = 1300

    16= 1000
    48= 430

    if not xtra compensation
    144= 38

    so i believe this actually puts houston in a better trade down scenario for if Peterson falls not to mention if someone else falls

    The falcons will end up at #1. They are positioning themsevles for a trade up. They are basicly trading their backup QB for CJ. They really want him, and I don't blame them. The good news is that Oak probally won't go S again this year.

    i doubt they'd do all that for a receiver.

    The Panthers took Deangelo Williams last year. I cannot imagine they would spend another first on a RB. GB and Buff though DO need a back and either AD or Marshawn might entice them to move up and surrender some picks.

    Atlanta has a better chance of getting Moss than they do CJ. Don't forget they have 2 previous first round receivers and Joe Horn. Horn's presence will benefit the other young receivers. Bottom line, CJ will not be a Falcon.

    hey janus, if we were to trade down and still take reggie, which im definitely in favor of, its gotta be before jax selects. huge gator fan, so i read up a lot, and delrio and company are smitten with reggie and will take him if he is there. if peterson is there at 10, i want him. otherwise, reggie or levi or landry.

    reggie nelson is going to be a good FS in this league...he's not gonna knock people out like he did against georgia but he'll be around the ball if the team that gets him uses him right

    as for your question A...i don't think we could trade down past jacksonville and expect him to be there...jacksonville needs a FS after deon grant left
