    What do you think??


    RB Adrian Peterson appears to be the Cleveland Browns favorite pick at No. 3 should they stay put. But, according to the Dayton Daily News, the Texans are interested in moving up the draft board for a shot at Peterson and could propose a trade to the Browns that would send starting QB David Carr and draft picks to Cleveland for the No. 3 position.

    it's nice to think about, but i doubt the texans will do anything to move up in the draft this year.

    David Carr and draft picks? I'd have to think twice about David Carr and our 1st for their 1st.

    I know we have a ton of holes, BUT I would send damn near anything Cleveland wanted. Carr and picks that is... Gosh I wish the draft was this weekend.

    Moving up 5 spots (to #3 over all) for Dave Carr, Is there a better deal out there?

    Rick Smith would be GM of the Year if he could trick the Browns into this. :doot:

    I'd swap firsts and throw in David Carr to get to the top spot. At the most I'd be willing to send an additional 4.

    I know that wouldn't get it done but that's what I think the move up is worth. I just don't think we can afford to give up too much in draft picks to do this and I really, really would like to see the Texans do this. I just can't make my brain agree that it's the ticket.

    There is always the hope that Cleveland picks a QB and AP falls to us, which I think is a real possibility. Brady Quinn is the hometown kid, while the Browns GM is on the record for loving Russell and saying the Browns would draft him (I know, smokescreens), so nothing is a forgone conclusion. But if its the #8 and DC, the I would do it.

    I'd send David Carr, our 1st and 3rd round picks this year and our 2nd round pick next year.

    Thank goodness you're not our GM. That's the sort of trade Casserly would make.

    I think its more likey the Texans could trade Carr to Cleveland to swap 2nd rd. picks :pigfly: this is really pushing it but maybe even 3rd rd. picks too :marionaner:

    I know Casserly read the boards, but I didn't know he posted, too.

    I really, really hope that this doesn't happen.

    We can't afford to be giving out draft picks with all our needs.

    Are you f'ing kidding me? For someone to take that albatross of a player and contract from us would be a gift from the gods much less to actually move up 5 spots in the 1st Round in order to guarantee a shot at either Petersen, C.Johnson or Joe Thomas. This is a total pipe dream regretfully.

    I am resigned to the sad fact that the Texans are too stupid and/or stubborn to bring about real change to this franchise. Carr is gonna be under center and we are going to continue to be under .500.

    oh well, McNair still gets paid and sticks by his cabana boy....

    sometimes McNair seems to care more about PR and other non-football BS more than he seems to care about the product on the field.

    haha

    i could possibly invision our #8 pick, Carr and a 2nd Round next year to the Browns for their #3 pick. I think that is a win win for both franchises. The browns make a small improvement at QB and get a 2nd round next year. We get a top notch player at a position of need and only give up a pick next year to move up. It would probably take a 3rd this year and a 2nd next year as well though.

    oh well, i hope Rick Smith stands up and demands change.

    If we can't make this happen, we need to hope that Quinn falls to us at #8 and we get a pretty damn good QB prospect with good value at #8.

    Johnson and Johnson practically sells itself. Two freaks of nature on the field at once. Those guys are unparalleled athletically and maybe CJ's hands can rub off on AJ....oh wait that didn't come out right

    OT- That avatar of yours Texas Thrill is hilarious. It took me a couple passes to notice it but pretty sweet.
