    Doesn't matter. ESPN and NFL Network will go to a commercial during that part of the draft.

    OH...sorry, misunderstood your question. Yes, everything that was on the list last year still is, except for RB.

    I envision us losing the next 5 games at least and am 50-50 on the last 2 that just won't matter by then. I see us drafting in the 12-14 range and should get at least one really good pick, hopefully Brandon Harris-CB or Prince Amukamara-CB. I also envision a coaching change and it'll be really hard to predict the draft until we see who the new head coach is.

    I am thinking the Texans finish with a 6-10 or 7-9 record. I predict win against Denver/Jags and possibly 1 of the Titan games.


    At 6-10 we likely pick between 8/9-12
    At 7-9 we likely pick between 10/11-14

    I hate to bring this up but I'm concerned about Demeco's injury and him coming back. I feel like Diles is the only player we've had that has come back from a serious injury and still be a good player. In this sense, if Demeco isn't the same I say we just promote him to Defensive Coordinator.


    Impact game-changing Safety is highest on my list. I think this would do wonders to our secondary. He's HAS to be smart and have good instincts and ballskills... this translates into making plays. Our safeties are awful. Pollard can't catch a cold and Wilson doesn't know what a cold even looks like. Our new impact safety will REALLY help out our CBs too. I feel our safety play has hurt this team more than our CB play.

    Secondly, we still need a good DT and CB from the draft.

    I say we draft all 7 rounds on offense. Would Frank Bush do any worse with all free agent vets?

    Lets just get as good on offense as we can. Work on scoring more than 3 points in the first half, and just assume the defense is going to give up 30 points a game.

    this is gonna sound harsh but this actually helps Texan franchise from finishing building out its base player foundation. We are more than one or two players away from a Championship team. They do need to hit the bulls-eye with this next offseason moves both in free agency & the draft, otherwise change will happen. My prediction of 8-8 is still attainable with difficulty of schedule factored in should put Texans at bottom of .500 pile #16-#18.

    As of right now we pick at 14, But that is likely to go down.

    Hope I am wrong.

    Really crappy teams draft BPA. Really good teams draft BPA. Average teams will try to fill a hole or two.

    We are a really crappy team that needs to draft the best defensive player available. We are thin everywhere, including linebacker.

    Would you agree Fairley would be the BPA if he's on the board?

    I really can't speak knowledgeably on draft prospects like many other folks here can.

    Likewise. I really got into following everyone's mocks last year and am looking forward to it this year as well. The way things are going now, I feel like it's an appropriate time to start looking ahead instead of waiting until February.:D
