    This is simple, just rate in order what you think are the Texans needs right now, kind of like how you would draft the positions if the players were avaliable. Here's my list.

    1. defensive tackle
    2. running back
    3. corner back
    4. center
    5. safety
    6. more offensive line help
    7. more defensive backfield help

    Obviously it's going to depend on how the board falls and Dunta's situation, but my best case scenerio with Dunta remaining a Texan:

    1. DT
    2. C/G
    3. RB
    4. DB
    5. DB
    6a. Oline/Dline
    6b. Oline/Dline
    7. Kicker

    1) C/G
    2) RB
    3) DT
    4) CB
    5) G/C
    6a) RB
    6b) WR
    7) PK

    With no salary cap, I don't see them letting Dunta go but this will probably be his last year if he doesn't sign a deal soon. The good thing this year though is the first round could be the highest rated guy that's on the board from what's on my first 4 round guess.

    1. FS/DT

    3. RB/CB
    4. CB/RB

    6b. OL/DL

    1. RB
    2. DT
    3. CB
    4. Center / Guard
    5. FS

    This isn't neccessarily the overall needs I see the team having, but the order in which I think that (if filled) would lead most quickly to the playoffs.

    This is really tough because it depends who is still on the board. Here is my guess to it though.
    1.C/G
    2.Defensive Tackle
    3.Safety
    4.Running back
    5.More Offensive Line help
    6.Kicker
    7.Whoever we can get that has potential

    Normally I would be right with the DT crowd in the first round, but I really like Florida's Pouncey. He is a good size and very athletic center who in my opinion would be exactly what we need on the line. He can also play G if needed. I think the draft is deep enough in DTs that we could still get a decent DT in round 2.
    If Pouncey is off the board, I would then start looking at DTs.

    1. DT (and that's just criminal after all the time we've spent trying to get that done)
    2a. RB
    2b. CB
    2c. C

    Past that I'm thinking BPA. I look at the team and I don't see any deep gaping holes. The OL needs an anchor, not an overhaul. The DL needs a wrecking ball on the inside, again not an overhaul. The secondary needs a better FS but even if Dunta leaves we're still in ok shape with Pollard, Quin, and Reeves. at RB we need a starter to either emerge or arrive but the group isn't terrible I don't think.

    No matter where you look you see groups that of course you could try and improve but only a couple of spots where you must improve.
