    I would want Bentley the most. Plus he can play center for us, which I think is the biggest need for this Oline right now.

    Franchise LTs are always the most important so I give Brick the slim edge over Bentley.

    i want bentley i think there are 4 solid tackles in this draft and we are bound to get one in the second round.


    Dfoam ferguson

    Mcneil
    winston justice
    Eric Winston

    we are gonna get one of the big three after Dfoam and with out wasting our top pick now thats a cant loose situation.

    I would rather have Bentley. That would move McKinney to guard, which I think is his natural position. I don't know if Pitts would move back to guard also though, since he's spent almost all of his pro career as a tackle (he was a guard coming out of college, or that's where the Texans were originally planning to play him). I think Pitts is decent enough as a LT though. Maybe Justice or Winston, assuming we draft one of them, can move to RT.

    LT - Pitts
    LG - McKinney
    C - Bentley
    RG - Weigert? Wade?
    RT - Winston

    It's not exactly Pro Bowl caliber, but it's better than what we've had.

    I don't know if this discussion is limited to free agency, but the guy best suited (and available) to help the 2006 Texans at C/G is either Nick Mangold or Eslinger. I suppose the best tackle available is Ferguson, but do believe that other Ts can be just as effective in the new system...

    I would add Mark Setterstorm along with those names at guard. I think he would do great in our system.

    i would say bentley because he has proven success in the nfl and is still young.

    If the Texans traded with the Jets, the Texans would probably take D'Brick at 4...

    Weigert was our best offensive lineman last year. I would want him back.

    Wiegert only played in 12 games last year. I don't know if he qualifies as our best offensive lineman. Either way, a mediocre offensive lineman from another team could probably come here and be our best one the way our line has played all 4 years.
