    OK for four months draftniks are going to prognisticate around here. One of the things that is most amusing IMO is the number of players that definitely won't be available when the Texans pick. To keep track of the amusement, if you see such a prediction quote it and stick it in this thread.

    WOW, :loser didnt I just post that like 2 seconds ago, and if you actually took the time to read the whole thing then you would have noticed that I said I dont see him falling that far and really wanted one of the top O-Linemen in the draft.

    My whole point was that I was amazed that these so called experts had DJ falling that far on a mock draft, so if youre gonna talk mess then know what youre talking about. :listening

    Now let's keep this lighthearted folks. This is meant for the amusement of watching a list of 25 people that definitely will be gone before the Texans get to the table.

    And to give Buff some credit, his post about DJ was kind of the opposite--more hey some people say he may fall to #13, not we have to trade up to get him because he will definitely be gone.

    Mike Nugent won't be available at #13. He will go #1 or #2 overall! Then shortly there after his uncle :coolb: Ted Nugent :bguitar: will go around #11 or #12.

    I think this will be a difficult year to predict who will be gone by 13th, because of the number of highly ranked RBs. Rbs usually tumble down the draft boards, but there are several top RBs this year.

    Top 3 are Cedric Benson and Williams and Brown. Everyone else will be second round picks. I see all three backs going 1st round!

    Honestly, I see all three of them going. Benson to Miami, Cadillac to Tampa Bay and Ronnie Brown to Oakland.

    I think Oakland will address their need for a RB before the draft. I think they'll seek a trade for Travis Henry. They already have the big pounder back, and they have a speedy 3rd down type back in Fargas. Henry would bring the best of both worlds. Behind the Raiders OLine he could be even more productive than he was in Buffalo. Their head coach is familiar with Henry and what he can do since he was OCoordinator for the Dolphins and he saw Henry twice a year.

    Maybe but you forget that last year, Jackson was projected top 10 and fell to 24 or something like that. And the year before, McGahee was the first back selected around 21...and he was just coming off major knee surgery. But this draft class is weak so I dont know...

    This class is so much more strong than the class of last year. More teams need running backs and as far as the Raiders going after Henry, I don't think so. He is overrated and has a problem holding on to the ball. The Raiders need a feature back. I don't think Henry is the answer.

    You think this entire draft class is better then last years draft class??? Dang. Cause if it was, I guarantee that 3 RBs dont go in the top 10...

    I'm curious what you mean by this. It seems to me that while it is weaker than the last few drafts in some areas, it seems stronger in others. For example, I would say it seems like there are better LBs and RBs for earlier picks than in the past few years. Also, I would argue that the strength of the draft is dramatically affected by the Jrs who come out and we're still awaiting on final word on some.
