Could this draft have fallen any better for the Texans!?

Yeah they certainly knew the Ravens would pick him or trade the pick to someone that would right? :rolleyes:
To be fair, the trading team often contacts the team about to get jumped to see if they want to counter.

How many had the iggles taking an OT? Not enough I'm sure considering Peters age. Gaine may have got a bit cocky, or not known who was trading up

Yup and Gaine in his infinite wisdom and experience figured that a D2 project would be a better choice than giving up a 5th rounder!

Houston Texans: Everyone in the NFL knew the Texans desperately needed a tackle, and there was a lot of buzz they were willing to trade up to get one. As Thursday unfolded, it started to appear that the best pure pass protector in the entire draft (Andre Dillard) would fall to them at pick No. 23. Instead, the Eaglesmoved up one spot ahead of the Texansto take Jason Peters' eventual successor.

This shows the Eagles' organizational priorities. In Houston, Dillard would have immediately been the team's most talented lineman. In Philadelphia, Dillard won't even start as a rookie -- and yet, the Eagles still traded up to get him.

That's news, but it probably didn't happen this time. Does anyone know if the Texans were planning to select Dillard?

We will probably never know but the Texans may have had Howard rated higher than Dillard on their board.

Texans want to be a run first team and reports are that Dillard is not a strong run blocker.
