    The best possible way for Rick Smith & Company to get an A for "First Day Haul" is to be creative & trade out of the 15th pick. It only takes a couple teams to reach on a prospect ahead of the Texans for someone better than expected to drop to #15 & add value to the Texans slot. It's going to be very difficult to come away with an extra 2nd unless the Texans trade out of the 1st but this is where there is real value. So with that in mind if the Texans get lucky, the right prospect falls into their laps & a team with firepower/need want him something big like this could happen- Texans trade out of the 1st rd. with the New England Patriots for the 34th pick (via KC) 58th & 89th.

    15th = 1050 point value
    34th = 580 + 320 (58th) +145 (89th) Total 1045

    New England is desperate to address secondary if Malcolm Jenkins slips by the Saints to #15 the Texans could take him OR listen to trade offers. A team like the Patriots have both extra picks & need in secondary to move up, & secure the sure thing @ CB.

    35th - Alphonso Smith, CB Wake Forrest

    46th - Louis Delmas, FS Western Michigan

    58th - Andy Levitre, OG Oregon State

    just a few more hours & we can leave fantasy island for Radio City Music Hall NYC :glasshalffull:

    adding insult to injury-

    Patrick Chung 34th Patriots
    Alphonso Smith 37th Broncos
    Darius Butler 41st Patriots
    Clint Sintim 45th Giants......doooohhhh

    Actual:

    #15 Brian Cushing, LB, USC - growing on me. player Kubiak & Smith targeted. immediate upgrade/starter

    #46 Connor Barwin, DE, Cincinnati - elite pass rushing measureables w/high motor. shocking pick. screams 3-4 OLB. Texans view him as hand in the dirt 4-3 end. with talent on roster I would take a productive situational pass rusher & be happy end of day :)
