    Every other year it seems the Texans spend one of their first three picks on a guy that makes everyone collectively yell "WTF?!?!" at their TV. This is an odd year, so we probably won't have to see that, but just in case, who do you think that's going to be?

    I don't really know what that WTF pick would be since we could use depth at every position...I could see us reaching for Montee Ball or another 2nd round back and saying we need depth behind Foster which I don't think would be a good idea at all...

    It's not position based, but rather who they draft. The draftniks will all put out their top 5 and top 10 lists, and while they'll vary from one to another, there will emerge a general consensus on the top few guys at that position. Then the Texans will take a guy that no one ranked that highly. Both Kareem Jackson and Devier Posey were both taken in years that the team needed that position, but they passed over some much higher rated players to take them. And right or wrong, everyone questioned the move. I'm just wondering who that's going to be this year.

    Hopefully you here the name Cooper Taylor in the 3-4th rd.

    6'4 230 Lbs 4.5/4.6 40 Saftey Richmond, Cooper was 2nd team all ACC at GaTech before transfering to Richmond. He would be a perfect nickle S in the Texans defense. The Texans are in the nickle defense about 60% of the time.

    The texans will select a tightend with their first 3 picks. With their 4th pick -the a compensatory selection for mario -they will draft a deep snapper.

    The deep snapper will be a former tightend.

    Ohio State RT (and ex-TE) Reid Fragel. Actually, that's not WTF. It's pretty much a lock.

    QB position has been, maybe always will be their Achilles heel. So logic suggests a continuation with next successor.

    Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee

    I would love to see Fragel be the Texans pick in the 4th rd.

    That guy could be really good in a couple of yrs. Tough/Strong/Great feet. Just needs some experience.

    We can only hope,

    Mocks I've seen say he will be there in the 2nd rd when the Texans are picking. However I believe this will change after the Combine.

    Right now .... I have no idea. After they bring in guy's for workouts .... we can throw sh!t at the wall and see if it sticks.


    That would require an early pick , likely a first rounder ?..... I dont think they'd spend a pick on a QB before the 3rd.

    I have a feeling they take a WR and an RT with their first two picks.

    Im gonna stick with Da'Rick Rogers, WR - Tennessee Tech as their #1 pick. (Yes , thats a big jump up from where I had him mocked in the late 3rd).

    I dont really believe they QB spot has been their achilles heel either .... Gary got a lot out of Schaub prior to the lisfranc and the defense let them down more often than not during those seasons.
    You take away the starting QB from damn near any NFL team and they fall off significantly. Yes teams catch lightning in a bottle (Kaepernick or Tom Brady) but the examples of that are the exception not the rule.

    Probably not the guy I want in the first round, dion Jordan.

    For two years I've wanted that Olb Von miller, Bruce Irvin...but I'm happy we took watt...

    They go into the combine/proday and price themselves out of our range...

    I think jordan is going to kill in the explosiveness drills at the combine. But if I'm the texans I'd trade up to get him.

    He'd improve this defense I'm every phase. Pass rush, run defense and coverage.

    He's an athletic freak, but I read Jordan weighed only 225 LBS at the nd of the yr. This worries me, because the last thing the Texans need is an Aaron Maybin.

    & so ****ing what if Schaub is an improvement? Did the Texans still invest wisely, did they receive impact player in return for dollars invested, did he take them to the Super Bowl or Conference Championship game?

    sounds like, looks like & feels like achillies took another one :voodoo:

    My WTF pick would be Tyrann Mathieu in any round. He's just not the kind of guy McNair would want on his team.
