This should supersede the earlier poll now that we're locked out of the early picks.
I've always liked stud lineman in the first round, and since we're drafting so late this year, I'll take the best lineman available on either side of the line with the 1st pick. Unless, of course, a QB falls to us we like.
Take the best player available regardless of position. This team has to many needs to lock in on a particular position.
Same here. Best player available.
BPA with a slight inclination toward offense would be my thought.
But if a far better defender is there you do what's right and take him anyway.
Qb, rb, wr, or te( bpa of the batch.)
What is with this fixation on trading Watt? Give it a rest.
Who's to say the 4th QB selected will not be the better QB over time vs your so called "top 3"? Texans must upgrade @ most important position of need, that will be their BPA!
No sh!t, right? The dude just locked up his 3rd DPOY, as well as locking up the sack title this year. We wouldn't be where we are without JJ Watt.
We run a ball control offense that can't control the ball b/c we can't run it with any consistency.. That's why I voted for taking a rb in the 1st.
But I'd be fine with taking the best offensive skill player on the board..rb, wr or te
I'd like to vote QB, but I really don't like the way you worded either QB choice. Honestly this is the first QB draft class I've liked in a few years and I think people are going to be surprised at how many are taken in the first 2 rounds.
My second choice would be OL or RB. I basicaly want offense for the first 4 picks we get.
They're trying to prove that they are mentally tough and unsentimental enough to do whatever it takes to win, but they try too hard and end up supporting really bad ideas... Like trading JJ Watt.
Here's an idea: Trade draft picks to move up and get your unproven talent, and leave alone the proven Greatest of All Time talent that we have on our roster. Or apply to be Cleveland's new GM.
Anyone who would seriously contemplate trading Watt is crazy. I know crazy, and that's utterly crazy.
Man, too bad so sad
Good point. I was just thinking, the Browns have done everything that the "experts" say we should be doing to ensure we have the best product on the field. Fire coaches every other year, fire the GM, draft first round QBs, draft "trouble" players, draft in the top 10 every year..... everything that's been suggested, that's what the Browns do.
The Browns new GM is on the phone, he wants to know if we'd be interested in trading Watt, Hopkins, K. Johnson, and out next two #1's, a 3rd, and three 6th's for Manziel.
But Manziel's a known commodity. We should only make that deal for the unproven talent to make the draftnik's happy.
They would have to throw in Josh Gordon
After missing out on Teddy B, I take the best QB available without hesitation with our first pick.
Had we drafted Teddy 1st overall it would have been a 'reach' because he lasted to 32, in actual fact we'd have spent the pick on a franchise QB.
(I am still optimistic about JD btw, but hindsight has us stacked at pass rusher even without him, he was a luxury pick and his injury problems don't even factor in that assessment at this point, Merci has grown into a really good player at that position.)
I'll never take the term reach seriously again.
Failing that OT may well be our next biggest need. Duane Brown has been a great player for us but that is one nasty injury at an age when maybe you begin to think if he comes back and the pick works out then you can move him around on the line and strengthen 2 positions anyway.
I've seen great RBs come from any round it's about talent identification, coaching, and scheme at that position rather than investing a lot of value where one bad knock and they're gone.
Still the irritating problem
of the playoffs to endure before we begin thinking about the draft though
There's always a qb that falls to late 1st early 2nd. Take that guy.
