Sports Illustrated has the Texans taking Alan Branch - DT - Michigan with the #8 pick. Personally, I would be quite pleased with this selection. However, many Texans fans seem to be devoted to the idea of taking an offensive skill player with this pick. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/don_banks/02/15/mock.draft2.part1/index.html?cnn=yes You would think that this choice would really solidify the defensive line for years to come. Great run stoppage, probably an improved pass rush, and better pass coverage as a result of the opposing QB's having less time to hold the football. What do you guys think?
