    This is supposed to feature the Texans today @ 5:30PM. At least that's the advertisement I saw them run. So it should be on in about 10 minutes. It should be a little more time and detail then yesterday's "state of the franchise" segment of which there is a thread about. Just wanted to give a heads up.

    I believe they have already done this...they had John McClain say that the Texans will probably take Clay Matthews.

    www.nfl.com/videos ---> click on Teams ---> then look for the Houston Texans

    No problem--I left a redirect so it will get attention in both forums but ultimately live here.

    Matthews is in the running for 2nd LB taken after Aaron Curry. He, Maualuga and Cushing were all USC linebackers and its likely one of them with be that 2nd guy. Maualuga is a MLB so that scratches him off our list, Cushing is a 2 down SAM and guys like that aren't worth 15th overall picks, plus Diles was doing pretty well when he went out. Which brings us to Matthews. The Texans will select an OLB with the 15th pick so get over it. Matthews is a better prospect than the other 2 USC LB's because of his versatility. He can play all 3 LB spots and is a better sheer athlete than the other 2 SC LBs and possibly even Curry. If Matthews is there at 15 the Texans will take him in a heart beat. I don't think they'll mess with trading down unless they were certain he'd be there where they trade down. If Matthews is the pick then that means the Texans got their guy and I'm happy.

    I still don't think he's worth #15. I would much rather we trade back into the 20's to take him and if he's gone then we go CB. That's just my opinion though.

    Don't forget that Matthews hasn't had is pro day yet. I don't think there's any chance the Texans could get him after trading down. They'll need to pull the trigger at 15 if they want them - and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he went before we pick.

    I'm not saying I necessarily agree with the hype, the hype is there and it's not calming down.

    i think if he goes before #15 we will trade down

    either way i think we are trading down no matter what happens

    That's kind of what I've been wanting. We need some serious depth across the board and this would be a good draft to address that in. In my perfect scenario we take Jenkins at #15, but if he's gone we trade back and pick up an extra 3rd.

    With a 1st, 2nd, two 3rd's, & two 4th's we could do some real damage in the draft, especially on defense.

    Well, McCLAIN has been targetting him for a long time.

    I'm not exactly sure that the Texans are.

    But... damn... haven't we already talked about Matthews vs. Cushing vs. everyone else and whether we need a LB and whether there's value at LB this early in the draft to the point where everyone is projectile vomiting, yet?

    I do not comprehend your response.

    I think we're having a failure of communication.

    Maybe he didn't see all the discussions that were had and just because you are fed up with them and ready to go off about it, he didn't feel it necessary to be exploded on since he was just discussing the team and the subject at hand.

    I've never understood the frustration over certain conversations on a message board. If I don't want to read or talk about something, I just won't visit the thread. If the first couple posts mention a subject I'm not interested in, I'll ignore the thread. Oh well.

    Personally, I would love Matthews. I think a LB with his upside could do wonders for our defense. But, I am also perfectly fine with trading down. I definitely have confidence in our FO.

    It doesn't bother me either but Pencil Neck has a point.

    This exact story has already been linked up in the draft section and we've already had a whole conversation about it.

    Maybe so, Pencil Neck is good contributor here, we all have our bad days maybe he was just venting.

    Who will the Texans select with their other 7 picks? I'd like to "get over it" as soon as possible. Maybe play a little golf that weekend?

    Now Clay the Trey is possibly better than Curry? By draft day, McClain will have the Texans trading up to the Lions using Mario in order to secure this once in a lifetime talent. I haven't seen this much hype regarding a Trojan coming to Houston since '06, when a USC running back was a lock to be selected by the Texans. What was his name?
