If the Texans were to trade down say 5 or 6 spots, do you think that we could could get an extra second round pick out of it? The more I think about it, trhe more it seems to make since. Here are some of my trade down projections. 1st Round: DT Shaun Cody-USC Has the good size we need for a DE in a 3-4, at right around 300 pounds, but he still has good wells fro such a big man, running about a 4.75 in the 40, would supply a push on the edge that we need allowing our OLBs to get in the backfield quicker, also with his speed he would be a good addition in run support, stretching otuside runs to the sideline with his running ability. 2nd Round: OG Elton Brown-VT or David Bass-Michigan Either of these gaurds would be a good addition to our O-line. They would push our current starters for a starting spot(if not earn one0 and provide great depth if anyon happened to go down durring the course of the season(ie. this season we were left with Fred Weary at OG). Also if we were to select Bass then we would have a combination OG, and OC and we would be able to play him at both. Kevin Everett TE- From the U or Alex Smith TE-Stanford Both of these guys are tall, have good speed, and are great receiveing TEs, they both would mke a major impact their rookie year, giving Carr good options over the middle of the field. OH, and both have great size. 3rd Round: Cedric Houston RB- Tennessee Good change of pase back with good hands and size, has the power to turn the ball up inside and make plays downhill, and even if he doesnt beat out Wells for the backup job, he will only make him work harder to keep it. Lofa Tatupu LB/SS-USC After seeing his performance in the National Championship Game, I think that it is fair to say that he is one of the most underrated players in this years draft. Playing against OU in the Fiesta Bowl his name was one of the ones that was consistently being called. The reason I think he will fall so low in the draft is because he is undersized, Only 6-0 and 225 Lofa is too small to play LB in the NFL level. I think that if he runs a good 40, somewhere in the 4.65 range that teams may consider moveing him to SS kinda like Boulware last year. If he can gain weight then he has the speed and tanasity to play at one of the MLB spots on the 3-4 and if he doesnt then I think he can contibute good depth at both LB and SS. Thats all for right now but dont forget we also have 2 4th rounders so if everything goes to plan then we will have a 1st, 2 2nds, 2 3rds, and 2 4ths, cant beat that with a stick.
