    Yea. #1 is a lock with AJ. I like fast guys in the slot, and Bradford is faster than Gaff. So I would put Gaff #2, but you could switch 'em out and be ok.

    AJ is clearly a lock at #1. Unless someone really steps up in training camp, IMO the Texans will probably do as they did last year and use both Bradford and Gaffney as the 2nd WR at times depending on the situation.

    By position, Andre (of course), and Bradford. But statistically if we keep the same philosophy, it will be Andre and Davis at RB. DD got plenty balls thrown to him last year, besides his carries.

    Good question. I can't remember any reverses. I'd have to look it up and see "if any" - but I can't right now. Don't get me wrong - I am all for DD getting the ball, as much as possible.

    I think Johnson had two carries for -10. If DD is our second leading receiver then we are going to have another high draft pick next year.

    I think that keeping Gaff at #3 for now is the best bet. Bradford has the speed and the ability to be a great #2. But how many nicklebacks out there can keep up with, and actually keep Gaff from getting the ball. Once Gaff has it, he is going to be gone. With everybody watching AJ and Corey, Gaff will be left in the perfect position.

    AJ and Gaff, I see AJ putting up a 1200 yards and Gaff getting around 800.

    Don't forget that Johnson gave up a lot of yards to take the safety on the last play of the Bills game. He took one for the team.

    AJ had a couple of carries for positive yards and then had that run out of the back of the end-zone safety for minus 34 to end up at -10.

    Oops--answered the 1st page without looking at the second page.

    We currently have a couple of WR's from NFLE coming to camp I think. We also have the rookie WR's and a FA. I would say AJ, Gaf, Bradford, and then whoever impresses the most during camp.
    from the roster:

    No-------Name-------Height Weight Birthdate Exp
    87 Armstrong, Derick--6-2 ---196 1979-04-02 2
    85 Bradford, Corey ----6-1 ---197 1975-12-08 7
    9 Charles, Terry -------6-3 ---207 1979-07-18 2
    16 Dugans, Ron -------6-2 ---206 1977-04-27 4
    86 Gaffney, Jabar -----6-1 ---193 1980-12-01 3
    17 Johnson, Albert ----5-9 ---190 1977-11-11 1
    80 Johnson, Andre ----6-2 ---221 1981-07-11 2
    14 Lewis, Jermaine ----6-4 ---209 1979-11-01 1
    84 Moses, J.J. ---------5-6 ----178 1979-09-12 2
    17 Starling, Kendrick --6-0 ---193 1979-12-27 R
    18 Taylor, Chris -------5-10 ---183 1979-04-25 1
    19 Thomas, Sloan ------6-1 ---203 1981-12-22 R

    Jermaine Lewis is not having a bad time in NFLE. That is 12 recievers. How many will the Texans be able to keep? Quite a few over 6' 0" I wonder is JJ is gone after this camp? This training camp should be most interesting. :confused:

    I think this is going to be one of the more interesting positions to watch when camp starts. I think Gaff and Bradford are going to be pushed by some of the new young draftees. Don't be surprised if one of them is dropped by the team. Shocking thought isn't it. But it just might happen.

    I agree. The only WR position that will be fought for is 4th position WR.
