I constantly hear the rattle of how the best route for the Texans in the first round is to trade down. We HAVE to recoup draft picks it is chimed and there is quality DB and WR material (and centers) in the later first round. Woot!! What a great idea, we all sing. But... Are we prepared for what will have to happen for the Texans to trade down? We can't just wish it and it happens in a vaccuum. We have to have something of worth. Someone who could possibly start for us. An appropriate team sacrifice in order to tradedown. If there isn't urgent demand, by several teams, for a certain top player... tradedowns are simply daydreams. I think it would take one of the top two RB, QB, or LT in the draft falling to #10 to the Texans for them to have a shot at trading down. The problem is, everyone wants the Texans to trade down. However consider your reactions to what it will happen when the Texans trade down. How much heat do you think they get if they trade down with Lynch or Brown available. Everyone will scream bloody murder..."WFT??? How could the Texans trade X ?!?!". Mark it down. Trading down sounds like a fantastic idea on paper, till it happens and you realize the Texans passed on "X" to be able to do it. So this seems a good spot to record down who will accept a tradedown, no matter who the Texans have available at the time. Secondly, for those that say..."wait! No. I won't trade down if "X" is still there". Well then, what player would it take (with a greater then 25% chance of actually being at #10) for the Texans to decide to retain on their roster, even if they get tradedown offers from New England, Buffalo, Green Bay, or Denver? Let's get it down on this thread and see how many of you have buyers remorse if a tradedown happens with "X" player you liked. I for one would trade down if Lynch, Brown, Branch, or either top two QB was still available. I would have to think really hard about trading down if Landry or Okoye is still there. (I am assuming AD is long gone in the top 5) I might pull the trade trigger if the price is right for any of the above. Would you?
