OK we've gotten ourselves into a tough spot. Here's what I mean: First, we had so many holes on this team going into the offseason that we had to be extremely active in FA. We signed Weaver, Moulds, Flannagan, to very large contracts, and cut Walker who gives us a huge cap hit. Next, both Bush and Young had very successful pro days and have become incredibly hyped. Bush in particular is already getting contract deals similar to LeBron James in basketball, which for an NFL player, is just scary. Young is a QB with a good story, RB is a HB with amazing marketability. The result? Both want huge paydays if they are signed #1 overall. The Texans obviously want Bush, but because of Young's superior Rosebowl appearance, it seems that half the city is in an uproar that we aren't considering drafting Young. If this is the case, Bush's marketability drops and Young's rises. Because Young is a QB, the Texans would probably give him slightly more money if he was #1, but would make most of it back in terms of jerseys, tickets, etc (unless his 'potential' turned out to be just that and nothing more). Any other team, if they drafted Bush, would make a fortune as well, but because we are so Young-crazy in Houston, maybe the Texans think that his marketability is stifled. We needed DEs more than anything going into the draft, and we signed two veteran, proven ends in Weaver and Kalu. Weaver is young and on the upside of his career while Kalu is a proven veteran with leadership and vision. So now, heres how I see our position. In order of our wants, I think it goes soemthing like: Bush Williams Young We can probably afford Bush, but won't get nearly as much back on ticket sales/promotions with him that any other team would. Plus we've just signed DD to a long term deal, spent a high pick on Morency, traded for the very expensive Eric Moulds, and signed pass catching TE JP and FB JC We love Williams athleticism and speed, but we just signed two potentially run stuffing DEs in Weaver and Kalu, and have two tweeners itching to rush the passer from the other side in Babin and Peek. Drafting Williams overall at #1 would probably be overkill with $$$ for a DE, and because NO picked up Brees, they may be willing to sell their #2 pick for even less than it should be sold for, making our trade down very unlikely We can probably afford Young at #1 because of his marketabilty here in Houston, but he'd have to sit out for a year, and with the number of holes we have on this team, we can't afford for the #1 pick to be inactive all year. Couple this with the fact that we just invested a small fortune into Carr's extension, and the fact that we have Moulds saying over and over again how glad he is that we have stuck with Carr so long and thats why he's here in the first place. So basically, it seems like no matter what we do, we are in for a little rollercoaster ride. Because of our financial situation and current holes, none of these picks are "perfect."
