    Me ill go with Marshawn Lynch. I just got a good feeling about him. I have this thought that Peterson if av. hes going to be a bust. I really never was a Quinn fan, esp. after my LSU tigers gave them a beating.

    thoughts?

    Without the foresight to know who was drafted before us I'll go with Calvin Johnson.

    If I could have any player in the draft? Calvin Johnson

    Realistically, LaRon Landry

    I am really liking Landry after his combine effort. I would love a great FS on our team, it would make a huge difference.

    Or if Joe Thomas fell, I wouldn't complain.:pigfly:

    Since AP, Johnson, and Thomas will be gone, I would pick Okoye. However, since Landry had such a good Combine, he has come back into the picture for me, and I wouldn't mind taking him at #8. Still, everything hinges on who we get in FA. JMHO!

    1. Landry
    2. Thomas
    3. Peterson
    4. Brown

    no Quinn
    I like Okoye but i just dont like the idea of drafting a DT that high.

    I'm assuming that Calvin Johnson and Joe Thomas have no chance of dropping to us:

    1. Adrian Peterson: while a small chance he might fall, there is still a chance.
    2. LaRon Landry: we need a good versatile safety with speed to shore up our secondary because our division and conference.
    3. Marshawn Lynch: he may not have run the best 40, but he is a very talented running back who would fit into our offense perfectly and would finally give us a legit running game.
    4. Amobi Okoye: this guy has too much potential to pass up at his age, we would potentially have one of the best defensive lines in a few years with him and Mario.
    5. Levi Brown: we need to address the OL, and he is a great offensive lineman.

    Funny isn't it. We all know, we can sitck our hands in the wound. But that little item seems to get shoved down the list every year. Well maybe not so funny. We're going to do it again this year. I thought after last years draft, we had a coach who would do the correct thing not the popular thing.

    My Texans Board:
    1. Joe Thomas :pigfly:
    2. Calvin Johnson :pigfly:
    3. Adrian Peterson :yes:
    4. Laron Landry :doot:
    5. Levi Brown
    6. Jamaal Anderson
    7. Omobi Okoye

    If AD is there, we take 'em and address OT with a Ryan Harris or Joe Staley.
    I'm torn between Anderson and Okoye.

    I don't think it's being ignored so much as 8 is not an opportune spot to address the line this year. Spencer and Winston were great additions last season and I expect us to do something similiar this season. Depending on what our board looks like and who is taken when and where I expect us to go QB/OL in the 2nd and 3rd in no particuliar order.

    It is not that I am ignoring it (there is more than one round in the draft and free agency), it is that I don't feel he is the best value at that slot.

    Folks are giving short shrift to Lynch around here, perhaps because he isn't a local product. Dude was shorter and heavier than AP with more wiggle and pass catching ability and marginally less top end speed. Seems like a perfect fit for the system without any anxiety of moving up.
