    Yeh I was hoping for somewhere around 14 or 15 for trade down possibiities. Its still possible but I think thats less likely now.

    You can get a good starters at that position in the draft in both the 1st and 2nd rounds, if you pick a "need" position. I'm sure there'll be a good CD/safety or a lineman avaliable for that pick who could start and help.

    Agreed. I had #15 on last mock from about three weeks ago.

    Haden looks like a top 10 pick, and then you're looking at marginal 1st round talents. I'm sure somebody will blaze a fast 40 and move up, but it's not because they played exceptionally well.

    Trade down and pick Berry.
    Mays will probably be available around 19 or 20

    Safety, corner, DT, OL would be great.

    Although if we went with a CJ Spiller, Jahvid Best or Dez Bryant i wouldnt complain.

    I think we need a fleet-footed, ball-hawking FS. I'd rather not go into next year having to pick from an aging Ferguson, an injury-prone Barber, or a too slow Busing to get our starting FS.

    I'd rather use the 1st day picks on a FS and/or a stud interior lineman (offensive or defensive, we could use upgrades in the middle of both) and either make do with the younguns we have at CB or try and grab one with a 2nd day pick.

    While a stud CB would be sweet, I think we're fixed better there than at FS or DT/C/OG.

    For those that want a trade up: I wouldn't count on it.....historically speaking anyways.

    Brandon Carter from Tech's a beast too. He basically shut down Suh. I'm not sure he fits the ZBS well, but he's darn good. Probably too freaky for the Texans to take. LOL

    I disagree. We've got Eugene Wilson under contract for another 2 yrs. at FS and though an upgrade would be nice it's not our highest priority. A stud
    OG would really be nice as well and is a distinct possibility but good OG's can be had in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. If Dunta leaves then CB instantly becomes our highest priority. None of the younguns we've currently got on roster is ready to be a true #1 CB, Dunta is the best we've got and he's marginal as a #1 CB. I'd like to see the Texans trade down if possible to the mid-late 20's and then pick one of the following players.

    Trevard Lindley or Patrick Robinson-CB
    Mike Iupati-OG
    Dan Williams-DT

    According to Scott Wright of DraftCountdown.com, there is a big drop off once Hayden goes off the board.

    Sorry can't copy from story so see 3rd question about the Falcon's defense:

    Its also an interesting take on the Falcon's who may be picking in front of us should we lose the coin toss.

    Some guys to look at that I've been paying attention to that could potentially be our first round selection.

    *Personally I don't see us going offense with our first round selection.*

    Donovan Warren: CB, Michigan
    Patrick Robinson: CB, Florida State
    Ras-I Dowling: CB/FS, Virginia
    Earl Thomas: FS, Texas (I doubt he will be available at #19 or #20)
    Taylor Mays: FS, USC (I'm not really big on him, but some people are)
    Brian Price: DT, UCLA

    ^ Check these guys out, they're who are on my radar.

    This year is deep for DT, but if Earl Thomas is on the board (unlikely) by the time we pick, I don't see us passing him up. He loves studying football and would be an excellent fit for us.

    This guy recently caught my attention as a possible value pick in later rounds. John Estes from Hawaii.
