    According to the spreadsheet kindly posted by someone else (whose name escapes me), here are the top 30 players left on the board:

    1. Dan Connor, OLB
    2. Andre Caldwell, WR
    --3. Dustin Keller, TE -- This guy was taken and I forgot to mark him down.
    4. Jamaal Charles, RB
    5. Justin King, CB
    6. Early Doucet, WR
    7. Anthony Collins, OT
    8. DaJuan Morgan, S
    9. Reggie Smith, CB
    10. Mario Manningham, WR
    11. Tyvon Branch, CB
    12. Cliff Avril, OLB
    13. Kevin Smith, RB
    14. Marcus Harrison, DT
    15. Chris Ellis, DE
    16. Carl Nicks, OT
    17. Dre Moore, DT
    18. Tavares Gooden, OLB
    19. Bryan Kehl, OLB
    20. Oniel Cousins, G
    21. Craig Stevens, TE
    22. Brad Cottam, TE
    23. Charles Godfrey, CB
    24. Earl Bennett, WR
    25. Thomas Decoud, S
    26. Xavier Adibi, OLB
    27. Pat Sims, DT
    28. John Greco, OG
    29. Tashard Choice, RB
    30. Shawn Crable, OLB
    ++31. Geno Hayes, OLB

    I think we all agree that we should be looking at RB and CB. Maybe, LB if the right guy is there.

    Tashard Choice and Charles Godfrey?

    Best case - Godfrey and Jamal Charles... but that's unrealistic to say the least.

    I can't imagine that Jamaal Charles is going to be available at 16.

    If we get 2 of any of these guys ill be extremely happy.
    #79 Dan Connor, OLB
    #89 Jamaal Charles, RB
    #118 Charles Godfrey, CB
    #151 Brad Cottam, TE

    This would be a badass draft.

    He won't be. But even if he and Godfrey BOTH were there at 16 - the Texans would take Godfrey.

    not sure why you guys think Godfrey is that great of a talent that he wouldn't slide that far.

    It's not so much that as it is people are always looking for good talent at that position, and he's one of the top ones left. That above list has him MUCH lower than other remaining player lists I've seen.

    I could see him lasting to our first 3rd round pick... but not past that.

    I would be extremely pleased if we came away with a RB and CB from these groups:

    Jamaal Charles - Prefered because he dances less behind the line.
    Kevin Smith


    Tyvon Branch - My top CB left. Will surprise.
    Charles Godfrey
    Orlando Scandrick
    Antwaun Molden


    There is a good group of players left available, and we should be able to net two starters out of the third round. Have hope Texan fans.

    A lot of talent left, I am glad we got another 3rd rounder (althought I thought we should have had a 2nd instead of a 3rd and 6th.) Think we'll get a CB next. I like Reggie Smith, that's who I would like to get.

    I'm just not a fan of choice at all. I do not think he is an NFL running back. I'll be fine with either of the CB's you mention, but not so much with Choice.

    Chris Ellis would be nice depth at defensive end. He can get after the QB. He played at VT so if our scouting department was watching alot of VT, this guy had to pop out at them.
