    Assuming the Texans go defense with the #10 pick and no Landry.....

    If the Texans pickup a solid corner, such as Leon Hall, suddenly your current safeties look respectable. Having a bad corner exposes the secondary much more than bad safeties. Two respectable corners (Dunta and Leon), would make Glenn Earl and Brown look good.

    BUT WAIT..!
    On the other hand, having no pressure on the QB exposes the secondary as well. Having Weaver play DE when his speed suggests a DT is a problem. No outside speed could be one of the biggest holes of the defense and any great secondary would get burned. Jamaal Anderson has been creaping down some draft boards, so him being available is becoming a good possiblity.

    I go over this scenerio numerous times and still have trouble choosing. Most days I go for Anderson. Ahhhhhh the dilemma!

    What do ya'll think?

    That's probably why I have trouble choosing. I'll support whomever we choose because they'll be starting.

    yeah, but the trick is figuring out wheter you want a pass rusher or a coverage guy. the texans have a lot of holes to fill, it's a matter of finding out which one takes priority.

    I doubt Anderson falls to 10, but if he does, jump all over him. He and Mario would mess with O-Lines for a decade to come.
