    If he is drafted by the texans, where will he play as a rookie? I mean Pitts has done a good job at LT and because of his contract Wade is here for the long haul. I have seen him play in the beginning of the season, but has he finally recovered fully from his knee injury?

    number one. the Texans will have a new coaching staff, jobs will be opened up & there will be competition for each position. number 2. Winston would have a chance to be the starting LT only if he competes and wins the position from Pitts. number 3. He has the ability to also play RT which I've stated before is also open. number 4 He seems recovered almost fully now which is remarkable by his first NFL season he should be back to 100% if not stronger because of his rehab and workout regimen.

    He would have a shot at both Tackle positions, but for the first 2-3 years, with Pitts doing as well as he has, Id like to see him at RT.

    I agree, that would be my choice as well :)

    Winston would likely start at RT pushing Wade inside. Wade would likely play RG, yes he is a large RG, but his footspeed would make him better suited for the role, it would just depend on how well he can get into posistion from his 3 stance. Pitts would stay at LT. If for some reason we keep McKinney or Weigert they would battle it out for LG. Hopefully they are both gone and we grab LeCharles Bentley if he shakes loose from NO nasty clutches.
