    We're stuck with what we've got now.

    GO TJ.

    Why not see how he works out in the 4-3 as a DT before we pass judgement on him a 2nd time? Im going to say it right now, Look out for him next year, I have a feeling he'll do great as a 4-3 DT rather than a 3-4 DE. Put him next to Robaire Smith with Walker and/or Payne behind them and we're in some good shape. Now about those DEs . . .

    No - I think he'll really benefit by staying as a DT when we play 4 - 3. Though I am worried about the DE spots.

    No thank you. I see where the value is for Texan fans, but I have no idea where the value in this trade is for the Texans.

    DT is a key element in the 4-3. I'd rather have a good DT than a good OLB. I might be in the minority on that opinion, but I stand by it.

    I'm already trying to get the fans to warm up to the idea of drafting Vince, and not trading down. There's no way I'd get them to Draft Vince, and give away picks......

    Both are unproven at this point in their careers. If you asked TJ for DJ, then I might say yes, but we don't know how good Travis Johnson is going to be. He has been the lowest profile 1st rounder we've had in all 4 years, but I don't think that necessarily means he will be a bust. If he's still a low profile player 2 years from now, then I'll be worried.

    Im almost positive he will go to DT, he has the size to be effective at tackle.... Line will probably look like this

    J. Babin T.Johnson R.Smith Strongside DE(most likely FA/Draft)

    He will be a DT. Hopefully one of those guys that can stuff the run and get some semblance of a pass-rush from the inside. That is what he did in college.

    Actually, I will take this as would you do this trade again after the first season. Essentially, this is what the Texans tradedown last year amounts to. I think this question is better asked after the draft and best asked in 3 years.

    so far there are at least 16 people here who are UT fans parading as Texan fans.. I wonder what the final tally will be.

    what about Walker isn't he more of a DT too? Or will he be gone (salary cap casualty - after last year I wouldn't be surprised.)
