    Comes down to us trading derrick jonson for travis johnson and a 3rd rounder next year. can't believe we passed on pollack, spears, clayton, barnes, etc....so many other good options

    Well, he did put up good numbers against top compition, so he can't be that bad. I guess we better start getting use to the fact that his is coming here and DJ isn't.

    I agree with you!! The Texans didn't need another LB. They needed someone up front to help stop the run. I like the pick!!

    Total shocker! Why did they not trade down again? He is probably no better than a 2nd rd pick! OMFG!!

    Totally agreed. We used our only pick in the first two rounds on that? What about Spears, Clayton, Pollard, White.......and that is all we could think off what a brain fart.

    TJ had 3 whole sacks last year. He is a one year wonder. He had 3 whole tackles for loss his junior year.

    HORRIBLE PICK

    Shaun Cody had almost 3 sacks in the orange bowl last year. He rules the back field. We will regret this draft like we have all our 2nd and 3rd round picks.

    thank you, just because he's not a texas boy and doesn't play in the big 12 doesn't mean he's not good. TJ doesnt have big numbers cuz HE'S A HOLE CLOSER. the linebackers get the tackles. Johnson disrupts the play.

    lol, yeah, he was the #1 DT on many boards with castillo being the one battling him for the top spot, bbut castillo was injured much of last year.

    since the 3-4 is supposed to be a sack generating system for the DL :rolleyes:

    that being said, i would have prefered spears but in CC i trust...

    I know a lot of people don't like this pick but he is a big body that will help our horrid rush defense. He fits the 3-4 defense well and in the short time the texans have been a team we have done pretty well in the first round. Give this guy a chance. Last year i wasn't too happy with D-rob and look how he turned out. Now i wonder where we go with our next pick.

    Wow. We could have traded down to get this guy. I have been @ a loss for words for 10 minutes. I'm glad we addressed d-line, but why not trade down even 3 picks again and get a pick this year. We passed on Clayton, Spears, Pollack, Barron, this list goes on. I hope he is good I don't know a lot about him so I don't want to pass judgement on him yet.
