    So I'm thinking something like this:

    OL
    WR
    MLB
    OLB
    DL
    TE
    FB

    In terms of importance of need.

    I'd say

    WR/OLB
    OLB/WR
    OL
    MLB
    OL
    DB

    The depth behind Barwin and Reed's just ugly. IMO, we were lucky they both went the entire season without missing time. I'd expect a WR to be taken if one of the 3-4 fall to us. If not, the BPA of the positions listed above

    Texans have enough needs that focus should be value heavy, no reaches because of any one particular need, WR/OLB/OT/OG.

    1st - BPA
    2nd - OL/LB
    3rd - WR

    Rest will depend on BPA at the time of pick and how the first three rounds pan out

    Let me preface this and say I think we should trade down.

    I'll say:

    WR/ILB/OLB
    OLB/ILB/WR
    OT/OG
    OG/OT
    BPA
    BPA
    BPA

    I agree with this completely ... if we can get an early 2nd round pick.

    I bet Rick either trades down in the first and picks up a second, or he parlays our extra 4th, and some other picks (maybe some picks from next year based on our potential for supplemental picks) to move back up in to the second.

    I can see us trading next years 1st (#32 :texflag:) for an early 2 this year since we are so cash strapped, can't sign any FA's and depth has been depleted at so many positions.

    :thinking: Hell maybe we should trade down and trade away next years first.

    Mark me down in the "Trade out of the first round" group. I doubt that a 1st-rd worthy WR is still available at the #26th pick. Because we need scoring threats, Fleener would be my pick @ 26 but he may be gone too. It is also unlikely that a starting caliber OLB or OL will be there either. So the best move is to trade back, IMHO.

    Mark me down as a fan of BPA in every round. The Texans have no business, whatsoever, reaching for a player. Take the best one on the board and be done with it. We need depth, not wholesale panic and rebuilding.

    I think they are going to pick a QB in the early rounds.

    Ahhh!........A man after me own heart. TE Coby Fleener would be an excellent choice for us at #26. 6-6, 247, 4.5/40. He was Andrew Luck's favorite receiver at Stanford. If the big 4 WRs are gone by the time we pick, and they most probably will, Fleener would seem to be a no-brainer.

    2nd round go MLB/OLB

    3rd - WR Ryan Broyles.

    I feel the same way about Coby Fleener. Dude just looks like a Texan.

    Would really love to trade down this year. Tons of talent in the 2nd round and not enough value at 27 for me to stay.

    I think its obvious that our top 3 needs in no particular order are WR, OLB, OL.

    Personally I would take OLB 1st, WR 2nd and OL 3rd/4th.

    We have some picks to trade if needed. I think a top tier WR will slip to the 2nd.

    If Kendall Wright falls to the second, I wouldn't mind us trading that extra 4th we picked up for Demeco OR the late 4th rounder we got to move up to get him.
