    They've backed themselves into a corner. They have to take one early in the draft now (first day). I hope they can pick up a guy who can start, because Kevin Walter is not a #2 receiver. He was barely a #3 receiver last year (not impressed with that signing so far). I'm sure they have something planned, though. Surely they wouldn't let Moulds go without having plans to replace him.

    And, to reiterate, I hope their plan isn't to run Kevin Walter out as the other starting receiver.

    I think it'd be cool if Mathis' hands turned into glue.

    Or maybe Domanick Williams' knee could grow some cartilage.

    You could have Jerry Rice, Tim Brown, and Cris Carter as your WRs; wont do you any good if there isn't anyone to throw them the ball.

    I thought AJ caught 103 passes last year. Somebody threw him that ball. :bubble:

    Kubiak likes Walter as a #2 receiver. We'll see if he sticks to that sentiment when the season starts.

    That's right...I forgot that DC was just a figment of our imagination and we've never actually had a QB for our first 5 years...:sarcasm:

    Move Daniels to WR where he should have been in the first place.

    Getting rid of Moulds was a bad idea imo

    a big factor in letting go of moulds was because he has lost a step, and putting in a TE at WR wouldn't help too much. daniels has good speed for a TE, but if you think that translates into playing WR, then you got issues.

    One of the top receivers is going to drop in to the second round. I would not be opposed to taking Sidney Rice with our second pick if he drops, but not Jarret.

    They have a plan, and it's too bad we have no idea what it is.

    Maybe it's Carr trade and get a RB, then WR on day 1 and then OL or DL on day 2.

    After all, Carr could get a 3rd or 4th...and they seem to want a decent WR. But, he just has to beable to catch and draw double teams off AJ. So, a 3 rd WR pick as a #2 isn't too far fetched.

    Jerivicious(sp) wasn't real fast, but he did the job. So, maybe thats the idea. A reciver that will catch the ball and help save AJ from being doubled. After all we know TE is a bigger part of the O than last year showed.

    You have 1 great WR(AJ) then a dependable(not a 4.4 guy) at #2 and use Walter as #3-4. Then use the TE and get a good back.

    mike walker in the 4th round

    Central Florida

    6'2 210 lbs

    4.35 40yd

    Pros- good production in college, sure hands, runs good routes, has a big frame

    Cons- doesnt play up to timed speed, isnt very elusive after the catch, had an ACL injury 2 years ago, level of competition wasnt great.

    his YPC went down significantly after his injury, which may mean he hasnt fully recovered or that he's lost some of his agility. however, for a 4th rounder, he would be a nice pickup. good character and makeup and goes over the middle.

    he's more of a number 2 receiver at this point, but he has very good size, speed, and hands, which means he has some pretty good upside.

    Their you go, a legit #2 WR in the 4th rd. Leaving us with 3 picks for RB, QB and OL/DL in the 1st 3.


    Don't forget Kubes learned from Shanny...and he has a way of making not so big time guys legit starters.

    Kubiak said (article in The Chronicle) that one of the factors in getting rid of Moulds was that he wants to get Walter the ball more. Obviously he is impressed with him. I think I'll put Kubiak's opion above that of texanfan! I think Walter can step it up and become a solid #2 and appariantly so does Kubiak. Let's not forget that maybe he could have made more of an impression if he had a decent QB to throw him the ball! If yall remember he did make quite a few clutch catches for 1st downs.

    well with donte stallworth not getting much attention he might be had for cheap...in detriot mike williams might be cut soon...and then you have the draft...our GM rick smith often talks about ted ginn jr. during a lot of interviews so read into that if you want...but you got guys like courtney taylor, joel filani, dallas baker, steven smith, etc who could be available in round 4

    My guess would be that the Texans will sign some boring, flawed veteran who won't preclude them from drafting a WR, but may keep them from "needing" to draft one early. I will let some of you play the name game.
