    If you could choose 1 person on the Texans who you feel has a great chance to make the Pro-bowl, who would it be?

    I'm going with Andre Johnson, with the additions of Moulds the field opens up for him, plus he has been reportedly doing great in his practices.

    Chris Taylor...

    In all seriousness, I'd go with Andre Johnson. He's been on the Pro Bowl team before while he was on the Texans and he's in the best situation that he's had in his whole career with mentor and #2 WR Eric Moulds drawing away coverage. The fact that he's beating up on the corners is exciting to hear and something to look forward to this year.

    I was going to make a poll, but somebody on the team would have been left out

    Realistically, I agree that Andre Johnson has the best chance, but if a guy can dream, then I would pick both David Carr and Mario Williams.

    I'll go with players that have not been yet, and why they should go:

    Who most deserves it: Dunta Robinson
    After being robbed of ROY 2 seasons ago, and a SO. slump on a horrible Dedfensive team last year, look for D.Rob to bounce back with a vengance this year, on a team with a defensive back friendly pass rush with big play making ability

    Who I wish would make it: David Carr
    Most Texans fans would like for this to happen, but in an AFC stacked with QB's like Peyton, Brady, and Big Ben, this could be a dream for a while, but that is why I said "wish"

    Who would shut everyone up: Mario Williams
    This is obvious

    Who would surprise everyone: Jason Babin
    I went with Babin, because with the added attention given to Mario and with Babin returning to his natural position, he could thrive.

    I'd like to see Shantee Orr become a dominant linebacker. I thought he played very well last year (one of the few players who did) and I can see him getting 12-13 sacks this year. Bennie Joppru would be nice too. After him not playing for 3 seasons, it would be awesome if he came back this year and has a good year.

    If he breaks into the starting lineup I would go on a limb and say Demeco Ryans.

    I really think it's either Carr's time, or Dunta's time.

    Based on everything weve been hearing and my own oft stated man-crush I'll go with Demeco 'D-Wreck' Ryans - I really think he's going to tear it up this year in the middle for us if given the opportunity to start.

    Worth Mentions: The usual suspects D-Rob & Dre - Mario might have a shot if he tears it up like others before him have.

    Carr is a long shot too if he can produce consistently this year like he has the talent to do. IMO if he can be consistent all year long and limit his mistakes he could very well be the comeback player of the year and possible Pro-bowl backup. Manning and Brady will be tough to beat for the starter spot on the AFC squad, but if Carr was to make the Pro-bowl I think it would go a long way towards making some fans feel more comfortable with him at the qb spot for the next few years.

    Andre Johnson is the safe pick and Dunta Robinson is IMO the popular choice. I think if Domanick Davis could stay healthy an entire season (which ain't gonna happen and I know it) then in this new system he'd get the numbers to make the Pro Bowl. With Edge heading to the Cardinals in the NFC that could really happen IF Davis could stay healthy all year.
