    It's pushing 11:00pm on a Thursday evening late in April & Texans brain trust sits in New York waiting patiently to make their selection for Houston. Seems like three hours have passed already now our time is up to send the pick front & center to God himself so he can make the announcement to the football world. Already covered in sweat after processing 25 previous big, nervous & equally sweaty draft prospects, he advances to the podium wiping his brow.

    Time stops, you drop everything your doing including your precious, beer (no not really). You struggle in agony, yell @ family/friends (soon to be ex) keep quiet & kick the dog for good measure, you are in the zone. Think damn it think, who is still available, followed by horror, who will the Texans take? Receivers you wanted are gone, as are all elite blue chip players @ every position of need. How did this happen? Your head is pounding, spinning hard (nothing to do with that empty 12pk laying harmlessly in the recycle tote). Feel nauseous, maybe a trip to the bathroom would relieve situation, but wait hold on can't miss the moment. Now your mind has gone completely blank, limp & empty can't think of a name or number worth the 26th pick, you start hoping that Texans trade down?

    Then Goodell bends over his throne, I mean podium & announces, with the 26th selection in the 2012 NFL Draft the Houston Texans select.............. your worst nightmare pick.

    Fleener.

    Basically just a beefed up WR. Doesn't block well.

    I don't think he will make it that far, but if he does I would trade out and get something from a team who needs a receiving TE ... we don't.

    Randle is a good choice. Just a big, fast guy who isn't really good at WR. If you hadn't said that I'd probably choose him. Stephen Hill would probably kill me. The guy is lightning fast, sure. Yeah, he came from a blocking school. Can he catch?

    I was just getting ready to say the same thing and I saw your message pop up. You never know they may pick the next HWSNBN!! Or the next J.J. Watt!

    Let's be perfectly honest here, if I don't know who it is, it's a bad pick.

    I keep coming back to Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina. Concerns about his weight & work ethic, he impressed @ his Pro-Day after skipping working out @ the combine. He measured 6-3, weighed in @ 213lbs. Vertical 36.5 Broad Jump 10'2" & ran a 4.38 & 4.47 in his forty. Texans like big bodied WR's & if they can run fast well check that box now as well. I would rather take a shot with Fleener because he is consistent, durable, strong & smart. Jeffery scares the :eek: out of me & Texans are in the market for WR, regardless :overreact:

    Sorry, there seems to be lots of noise coming from the Texans booth. Seems like they're having a tough time deciding on their pick. Time has expired and we will have to move onto New England. New England is on the clock.........

    If Wade wins the battle over RS we might stand a chance. If not? Well, there's always next year!:slapfight:

    I was really thinking Fleener myself cause i know Kubiak has an obsession for TEs but i think Mo Sanu kinda scares me too, seems like a bit of a reach if they took him. maybe sanu or randle in the second rd would be ok but not in the first. Seems like all the mocks have the receivers slipping and us taken Wright but that kinda bothers me too just bc i feel hes more of a slot and we dont need another slot we need a legit #2.. that being said, i REALLY like LB Nick Perry out of USC

    My "Nightmare Pick" is sure to be whoever Kubiak picks, I sure hope Phillips is in charge of this years draft as well. He did great last year, don't mess with what works.
