    I hope Mendenhall is there although with the addition of Chris Brown in the offseason along with already having Chris Taylor, Darius Walker and Ahman Green may make the Texans go in a different direction.

    Whoever they pick I'll support!! :fans:

    I would like to be the first to wish our new Texans a big welcome.

    I was the first Texans Fan to welcome Mario Williams to be a Texans. I was at the draft in NYC and the Texans brought Mario over and introduced him to me and he autographed my Draft Ticket. This happened like 15 minutes after he was officially drafted. WOW, what a honor that was.:fans:

    I'd really like to see Brandon Albert or Chris Williams come our way, but I won't be surprised if we select Gosder Cherilus.

    Please keep this thread bubbling away with all the speculation and reaction you all can muster, I am going to have to relive the draft excitement through this thread so talk it up.

    I really want defense at #18, hopefully front 7. Best result in my mind would be Rivers falling to us by some miracle. :d:

    Yes I am prepared for an LT or RB in the first, but call me an eternal optimist

    I predict an LT or the best defensive player avaliable. Or a trade down, I'm not ruling that out.

    Yep. I have my doubts that they would take a RB, unless there were no alternative.

    I say we draft either Mendenhall or Stewart. Let Ahman, Taylor, Walker, Brown, and Mendenhall/Stewart battle it out for first, second, third, and fourth string. Whoever is the oddman out, gets traded or cut. I'm thinking that may be Walker or Taylor. Ahman's injury problems have me wanting him gone though.

    I predict the player we draft will be smarter than Vince Young.

    Well the biggest hole is at Cb... Mike Jenkin's covers us even with a worse case scenario with Robinson. Six OT's before the 17 ?...Now that's a draft class.

    Had Mendenhall's Mom on tonight....I think they are a fine family and if he is the pick...outide in instead of inide out, I'm on board. I think in the end we'll pay the price for doing it that way though. But we need a Dominic Davis-Williams pick every five or six years or so, so that we all can figure that out.

    Oh the possibilities. If we go Defense which I believe we will, I have a short list I would like to see.
    LB

    Keith Rivers or Jerrod Mayo

    DL

    Merling or Campbell

    DB

    Jenkins, Flowers, or DRC

    if it is Offense I would have to go OL with Albert or C. Williams. On a trade down it would depend on the position of the pick.
