    DeAndre Hopkins, Xavier Rhodes, or Matt Elam in the first round.

    Would love for us to get Kasheem Greene in the 2nd even though I don't think it is possible.

    I had previously liked Margus Hunt in the 2nd-3rdish-how sweet would our line be with Hunt and Watt?-but his workout likely put him out of reach.

    It might be more helpful as lead moderator to send a PM to the new guy rather than sarcasm.

    I like some of the usual suspects such as Keenan Allen, Hopkins, & Hunter. Some names I wouldn't mind seeing later in the draft would be Aaron Dobson WR from Marshall. Good size, decent speed, & good hands. He made some great catches & plays tough imo.

    Then Schwenke C/ OG from Cal. This guy held his own very well against some decent competition at the Senior Bowl. He stood up Jenkins out of Georgia quite a few times. Good mobility & could play G w/ the hopes of eventually replacing Myers at C. His versatility between the 2 positions would be a good asset imo.

    Even though Schwenke at OC/OG isn't a huge need in 3rd when the Texans are picking he will probably be BPA and a 10 yr starter. You could do worse than picking a guy like him. I also like Dobson in rd 2 if the Texans decide to go another direction in rd 1.

    A couple of guys I also think would be great fits on the Texans because they would add what the Texans are desparately missing. SPEED

    1. Hunter
    2. Swope
    3. Xavier Gooden

    I'll use this thread for narrowing down our potential selections based on chatter:

    I'm hearing Datone Jones DL UCLA would be snapped up if he's there at 27. I have not studied as much tape as I need to, I guess, because what I saw early on was a questionable motor and him get blown out a few times. Can anybody make me love Datone? Likely won't be there for us, but I'm interested in other opinions?

    Johnathan Cyprien S FIU I like a lot and would be good with us taking him at 27.

    Deandre Hopkins WR Clemson is a favorite of mine. Just looks the part to me and doesn't have the injury concerns of others. Justin Hunter WR Tennessee is darn intriguing, but I can't ignore his hands problems. There's a passel of other WRs that I think fit better in Round 2. No slam dunks, but there will be some quality starters developed out of this class. I'm less expecting WR @27 for us now.

    Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame has been recently mocked to us by people I respect -- and a few I don't. Anybody see any holes in his game? How does he compare to a Kyle Rudolph? On TE, anybody see a Dwayne Allen out there this year??? Loved him last year, much more than Fleener taken ahead of him.

    Menelik Watson OT Florida I see mocked to us in the first. I see potential there, but that early feels like a reach value wise???

    As far as Alec Ogletree LB Georgia being mocked to us so often, I see no way the Texans select him. He's a stone knucklehead. Outside of that, I don't think he's all that. 2nd rounder for a criminal team: Ravens/Bengals/etc.

    Datone Jones had a good Senior Bowl week.
    He looks pretty good on tapes, too.

    I don't know where to put him though.
