    trade down to #15 (Kansas City) and pick up extra 3rd rounder.

    1rst Round #15
    Thomas Davis- After releasing Sharper & Foreman, we are in need of a linebacker and Davis can play linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. He also has the speed and athleticism to cover well.

    Trade our 2nd rounder(47) and the 3rd rounder we picked up from kansas city(99) and trade up to number 33-35.

    2nd Round either #33-35
    David Baas- Carr is the franchise qb and needs protection, and Baas is the kind of guy this team could use, and a potential cornerstone for this o-line.

    3rd Round #73
    Antonio Perkins- Good CB with astounding speed that we could really use for depth, also a dangerous return man, so can we get rid of moses and only have to pay 1 salary to get 2 jobs done.

    #78
    Vincent Jackson- Very explosive wr that can really stretch the field, might take a year to fully develop but well worth it. Great size and speed.

    4th round #114
    Mike Patterson- Well sized DT out of USC, can play DE as well, and can add some nice depth to the d-line, would be a nice pickup in the 4th round.


    now im not saying that's neccesarily how it will play out, it's a reasonable possibility though, and I would be ecstatic if this happened. These are some quality players.

    If we were to trade down and take a ILB then I think we would trade farther down and get Darryn Blackstock because he played in a 3-4 defense at VA.

    We would be much better off with Davis, as he as good speed,size, and can tackle very well. He is destined for greater things than Blackstock.

    I have to agree here . Not many LB's w/ 4.43 speed , could add another deminsion to the Texans D . Adding Baas in round two would be niced as well , throw in another 3rd rounder from KC in the trade making the total 3 picks in the third round gives the team flexibility to add depth to DL WR CB and or RB all in round three

    Mike Patterson is a 2nd rounder and Perkins' cover skills are below average at best...The only impact Perkins would have would be in the return game, where he excels...

    You start off with a trade down with KC for their #99 compensatory pick. By league rules (I believe I'm right in saying) you are not allowed to trade these picks. Sorry! I like the way you are trying to trade up so as to position yourself to draft Baas. Despite some opinion, he's good enough to start as a rookie.
