what do you think?
I know nothing about this kid. Can we get some info on him? Ive heard his name but had no idea that we were so high on him.
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
Lmao im speechless, im just sitting here in my chair and contemplating life. I dont know what to think>! Im seriously at a loss for words. Hope he works out for us thats about all that can come to mind. (It took me a good 5 min to write this)
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.
Wrong!! He was rated very high by several teams!!
TJ had 3 whole sacks last year. He is a one year wonder. He had 3 whole tackles for loss his junior year.
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.
sucks a**! We'll probably wait 4 more hours for them to draft a kicker in teh 3rd...I'm gonna go get ready for the Rockets game
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
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.
you passed up DJ lol we got merriman and i am moooore than happy. TJ was the wrong pick could have gotten him in the second maybe 3rd round
Castillo - Wasn't he the steriod guy?
Bummed that we didnt draft DJ when we had the chance to but I still like the pick.
