    A lot of pundits are panning the Texans draft, so I'm convinced this might be their best draft ever! :yao:

    In all seriousness, yeah it sucked to see the Iggles snipe Dillard one pick before the Texans, but supposedly the Ravens called the Texans to counter and they refused.

    Everyone is going to say the Texans panicked/reached on Howard, and that may be true. Who knows? People said the same in '08 when they drafted Duane Brown. At the end of the day I'm just glad they addressed their biggest needs with four of their seven picks. (OT and CB)

    Warring seems like an athletic freak that had to be a BPA pick in the 3rd, considering they drafted two TEs last year. When they drafted Omenihu in the 5th, my jaw dropped. I honestly thought he had already been taken on Day 2. He should push for d-line rotational snaps even in his rookie year.

    I understand the Gillaspia pick as well. O'Brien's old-school pound the rock offense hasn't been the same since Jay Prosch was released. Plus he'll largely contribute on STs. Seems like Bryan Braman 2.0.

    Long story short, I just want to see these guys on the field before I or the media condemn them. From a positional needs perspective, Gaine hit 'em all in my opinion.

    Well said. 

  2. Congrats to Cards fans - their FO did a great job and snagged some really nice draftees. 

    I haven't looked at all the teams picks but is there a better one than what the Cards got?

    I know my team disappointed - at least until we see them in action.

    At least they got some nice UDFA's! Sucks when you are reduced to that.

    I see two scenarios for my Texans...

    1. Trade up: If they do this, it will be for one of the three top o-linemen. (Taylor, Dillard, Williams)

    2. Stay put: At #23 the hope is probably that Ford falls into their lap. (possible, but not likely) If he's gone it's probably going to be either Bradbury or Risner. Lindstrom could be a darkhorse pick.

    Cornerback is another huge need for this team, but I feel like there's still going to be a lot of value at that position in the 2nd round.

    Hey Fart - long time no chat.

    I was sitting at Coaches watching the draft.

    Seeing all those big names tumbling down the board was something else. Then the Eagles traded and I'm like Oh no...not Dillard.

    But I'm thinking, well, Murphy and Taylor are still there so no biggie.

    They took Dillard and we took Howard. Phark.

    All I can say is he better work out or Gaine is gonna look like an idiot.

    I liked the Scharping, Omenuhi pick and also Gillaspia, but thought he coulda fallen off to UDFA.

    It's sad when you are reduced to being excited about Higdon and Dixon.

    Back to the drawing board.

    Allegedly, it's that ISIS is developing laptop bombs to take on airplanes -- which is information that was released publicly months ago and something I am sure Russia was already aware of.

    That's what I figured but thought I had missed something due to all the attention it's been getting.

    Am I wrong in thinking it is way over the top?

  4. Personally, Texans did pretty good.

    R1. Deshaun Watson QB

    Was going to be contending for top QB on the board if he had come out last season. Has that intangible called "desire to win". Could be good, bad or in the middle. Odds are in the middle which will be better than most of the offerings over the last few years.

    R2. Zach Cunningham. LB

    Was projected to go well into the first round. To get him at 57 is a steal. Looks like he will be Brian Cushing's replacement when he pulls the plug.

    R3. D'onta Foreman RB.

    Not a complete back, and had 6 fumbles last season but will be the thunder to Lamar Miller's lightning.

    R4. Julien Davenport OT.

    For mine, plenty raw, but has several pundits intrigued. Wait and see for me - likely a year away.

    Texans BADLY needed OT help, but waited for R4. Must have contingency plans up sleeve.

    R4b. Carlos Watkins DT.

    Another one projected to go much higher which is likely why Texans pulled the trigger on him. But, Texans have let Wifork walk, so (big guy up front) may have been in the plan.

    R5. Treston Decoud CB.

    Texans lost two DB's in the offseason so was a PON pick. Has good upside but needs some coaching.

    R7. Kyle Fuller OT.

    Another one projected to go higher (R6.) and is intriguing. With Derek Newton not likely to return from dual patella breaks, RT is crucial - Texans take two from this draft but they will need developing. A little odd as they will likely need to pick up a vet anyway.


    I like this draft - it addressed the key position and also snagged a young gun back to help him out (a la Cowboys). Scoring some steals along the way added some extra cream on top.

    Has to be one of the better drafts (if not the best) from Smith.

    Dudes, this draft is wicked - you could make a case for about 50 guys to go in the first.

  6. Texans don't really need receiver help that much. (especially not to address it in the first round) If they go pass catcher there and how your board has fallen, I'd hope they select Njoku.


    If they move up that far it would be difficult to imagine anything other than a QB - and I don't see one they would move that far up for - maybe a handful of spots but that would be about it.


    Yes. Which is why it made sense for Houston to just trade him there. Browns can absorb it, they can sweeten the pot by taking more salary on and hope they can flip him again for a pick.


    Houston meanwhile can put a full court press on for Romo now. I think they may be the favorites. They have a better OL, WR core pretty damn close, the defense is still amazing and the division is a lot easier.

    Titans and Jags did pretty well in FA and Titans have two first round (high) picks.

    Titans will be very tough this year and I would not be surprised to see Indy rebound.

    Jags also should start seeing some dividends on their D.

    AFC south should be vastly improved and even dangerous this year.



    I'm not happy that it cost Texans next year's second but getting rid of Osweiler was worth it.

    Texans just got better by deduction and it frees up a valuable 53 spot.

    Also wont have to count him in the QB corp - it is not a good idea to carry more than 3 QB's on a squad and you run a risk stashing a QB on a practice squad.

  8. How good the Texans are outside of the quarterback position, I'd personally take the risk if it were possible to trade for/sign him. Who knows how much longer the Texans can keep this good of a roster intact? My guess is a season or two max. Gotta swing for the fences IMO.

    This is why they took a gamble on Osweiler.

    I think they will try for one of the options out there but whether they have the cap or balls after being stung by the Osweiler debacle is yet to be seen.

  9. R1. Ryan Ramchzyk OT

    or Cam Robinson OT

    or Garrett Bolles OT

    It's no secret Texans need QB help in the worst possible way but a rookie is not likely going to be the saviour this season so Texans bolster their oline - just in case Newton can't play.


    R2. DeShone Kizer QB

    or Patrick Mahomes QB (May have to trade back up for either of these two)

    Texans have to keep trying for a franchise guy so either of these two give them someone to develop over the next year until Osweiler's 2nd year expires.


    R3. D'onta Foreman RB

    Texans were obviously missing that extra oomph in their run game last season. Lamar Miller got his 1000 yards but was not used in his preferred role so bring in a hammer.


    R4. Adam Shaheen TE

    Huge, athletic ex-basket baller with good hands and should make a big target for whoever is under center.


    R5. Damien Mama G

    Texans continue seeking help for their line.


    R6. Levon Myers OT

    More depth for that oline


    R7. Josh Tupou NT

    New fattie to groom in the wake of Wilfork's possible retirement.

    Just for something to do, I'll offer my (ahem) humble opinion. :coffee:

    Even if Pats are Brady-less for 4 weeks, I think they still win a minimum of 10.

    Browns will be lucky to win more than 5.

    Colts will win at least 9 and Jags will be improved, but they won't win more than 8.

    Panthers won't regress out of the playoffs - they still win 12.

    The rest are doable but of course there will be adjustments which I have not done.

  14. Like Fart said, it should be Watt, but I bet Keuchly wins because 11-0.

    Meh - only counts if they go 16-0.

    If Texans make the post season, that advantage disappears.

    Keuchly is good, but also missed 4 weeks.

  16. A thread from last year I thought would be interesting to revive for this year.

    Praise - Texans seem to be having fun out there again. The defense is now what we fans thought they would be pre-season.

    Rip - They need to do what they have to do to get that running game working. Oline and RB's have to step it up to match the defenses enthusiasm.

  17. I know a lot of people are fed up with his overexposure in commercials, but how good is Watt, and how deserving.

    I know of no other player that is as dedicated and hard working as this young man and it's not like he was a consensus #1 pick of the draft - he worked and studied to be as good as he is and is on a mediocre team to boot.

    Another one is Andre Johnson. A true champion without much to show for it and a true humanitarian.

    Arian Foster for similar reasons. Did you know he was an UDFA?

    And one not from my team - Jason Witten.

    Yeah, it's not ten, but I don't know enough about too many others.

    Oh and Larry Fitzgerald - helps out people wanting to finish college careers after missing out. Has a foundation of some sort?
