    Here's my trade proposal to the Denver Broncos:

    Denver gets: #10 overall
    Houston gets: #21 overall, #86, #148

    It is my opinion that the #1 guy on Denver's radar is Adam Carriker, DE from Nebraska. It's unlikely Carriker slips past SF at #11 or St. Louis at #13. The hope is that if Rick Smith does a good enough job of selling this that we'll be able to make this deal happen.

    At #21, we can address our need for another playmaking wideout by selecting Robert Meachem, WR from Tennessee although it's possible he's off the board by now. If so, Reggie Nelson, S from Florida would be the next best thing. Nelson would be a welcome addidtion to a depleted, and somewhat lackluster DB corps. On the off chance that both are gone at #21 I would love to see Joe Staley, OT from Central Michigan be our choice. He's definitely a guy who can step in and make an impact at LT right away.
    At #86, assuming we get Meachem or Nelson at #21, I like Ryan Harris, the LT out of Notre Dame. He may not be as NFL-ready as Staley, but could pay dividends for our O-Line. If Staley is our guy at #21, I like Aaron Rouse, S from Virginia Tech at #86. He'd be the best safety available at this point in the draft and would provide instant depth at the S position, especially if we miss out on Nelson. Lastly, with pick #148 (5th round) I would take a hard look at David Ball, WR from New Hampshire. He's got all the skills to be a solid possession receiver in the league and could possibly develop into a nice #2 option at wideout.

    Thoughts?

    No you want. Unless you like seeing ****(chickens fighting with spurs on their feet) fights and old people beaten up, Staley's most excellent adventure with the Texans would be ...brutal. Definatly ?

    My guess is that Navy_Chris = TaylorFan27. Looks like he's breaking in a new name for when the new board launches.

    I heard someone call in to the radio with this exact proposal... Was that you TaylorFan?
