    RD.1 Vontae Davis CB ILL Fastest CB in draft has the size to play FS
    RD.2 Everette Brown DE FLA. ST. Fast pass rushing DE has room to develop
    RD.3 Tyrone McKenzie LB S. FLA. Big fast WILL LB playmaker
    RD.4 Clay Matthews LB USC Doesn't get the noteriety of the other USC lb's but makes just as many plays. Play SAM lb

    RD.5 Kirston Pittman DE LSU Makes more plays than the mor highly rated DE on his team Jackson. Has good burst off the edge.
    RD6 Marlon Favorite DT LSU Sleeper good quickness for a big man I like SEC D-linemen. Played in the shadow of Dorsey & Francios but is a player in his own right
    RD7 Phillip Hunt DE U of H pass rush specialist works hard

    Don't see the texans going CB with the first pick with dunta returning, and bennett and molden just recently drafted. Other then that I think they will go heavy at DE and OLB.

    Clay Matthews is a good name for a LB.

    No one knows how effective Dunta will be when he returns. If Vontae Davis is available and is the BPA we should take him. He most likely will be gone anyway. Is looking like a very high pick right now.

    Also if Mathews keeps playing like he is right now, he wont last until the 4th round.

    Both of these guys are on my watch list.

    Davis would make a great ballhawking FS if Dunta comes back healthy.

    I hope I'm wrong but I see a 6-10 record in the future if Dick Smith remains as the DC for the entire year.

    This will put KUBES on the hot seat in 2010.

    It' unfortunate that Dick Smith will have put KUBES in that position.

    Like I said I hope I'm wrong.

    So how funny would it be if we had both Kevin and Clay Matthews play for the Texans?

    You might want to consider Victor "Macho" Harris the CB from VT. Malcom Jenkins is also a name to keep in the head from TOSU.

    I have never heard of Harris, but Jenkins probably would have been a first round pick if he had come out last year. He might possibly be the best corner in the draft... I think he will be gone by the time the Texans pick though.

    Harris had 36 tackles (1 TFL), 11 passes defended, & 5 INTs (1 TD) last year.

    I think he was rated around the 2nd round last year, but decided not to enter the draft.

    Love seeing some mock drafts- Obviously we probably won't go ALL defense, but I commend the effort and the idea!

    I'd be more inclined to go with a top Pass rusher in the 1st round like a Michael Johnson or George Sylvie, then in the second grab a solide CB/S guy or a top S that falls. Should be guys like Mays, Rolle, Moore, Pegues so I'm thinking a good FS/SS type will be there since we all know Richard Smith loves to have 2 SS's on the field :)

    The only problem with drafting defense this year might be scouting players who best fit the new defensive coordinators scheme.....

    I'm not so concerned with players that fit a scheme so much as just getting good football players rather than some of the dead weight this team carry's now.

    We need to beat the colts in the worst way on Sunday. If we lose I could see us ending up with a pick in the 10 range.

    This would allow us to pick Selvie, Davis, Moore, or Mays.

    Does anyone think Harris will last till the 2nd rd.

    I was also very impressed with Pegues. He was very impressive against LSU & Auburn.

    Harris might be the pick if he lasts to the 2nd rd. We have a history picking Va. Tech. players.(Frye, D. Brown, Adibi).

    I would be OK picking Selvie in the 1st & Harris in the 2nd.

    I think Pegues is great, but he is really thin to be playing safety in the NFL.

    He is listed at 196, but he looks skinnier than that.

    He has the speed to play CB in the NFL. That is the position he played as a Freshman & Sophomore.

    He's been credited with a 4.4 forty before & a 350+ bench press.

    Sometimes a player who is a good football player in one scheme, is a goose in another.

    PBuc was awful for us, but is playing real well for the Bucs

    If you are talkin about the scheme to let the other team score every time they have the ball ..... No , they dont fit Dick Smith's scheme.....


    Dick Smith is who we thought he was .... Go ahead , Crown his ass .... He is who we thought he was .... and we aint gonna let him off the hook.

    Any scheme that doesn't allow 30 points per game.

    GOD OUR DEFENSE IS AWFUL.
