  • Hypothetical Question for the 2006 draft

    If the Texans decided to take the hometown kid in Vince Young and the Saints still took Reggie Bush. Where would Mario Williams have fallen to? Would the Titans have taken the next best QB available and gone with Leinart? The Jets were sold with D'Brickashaw. Were the Packers a possibility or were they A.J. Hawk all the way?

    What are some scenarios that could have played out?

    First it should be noted that the Texans were going either Bush or Williams. Young wasn't in the running from what I know.

    Even so, hypothetically:

    1. Texans - Vince Young
    2. Saints - Reggie Bush
    3. Titans - Matt Leinart
    4. Jets - D'Brickashaw Williams
    5. Packers - Mario Williams

    That's my guess anyway.

      Green Bay seemed ready to take AJ, and then the next year, Kampman had a career high in sacks, so i wouldve been mad had Green Bay taken Mario

        Kampman could use another strong defensive end across from him. Williams/Kampman would be a formidable duo. However, the combo of Jenkins/KGB has worked well thus far. Still, I think it's almost always a bad decision to pass on an elite DE for an elite LB.

          But Green Bay did have a bigger need at LB during the draft
          Kampman had proved average and KGB was still doing good. But at LB all GB had was Barnett

            True but linebackers are easier to find later in the draft than defensive ends.

              If AJ Hawk and Mario Williams are both on the board, it's a no brainer, you take Williams.

                Without question.

                  Not if you're the Saints in my opinion. They already have 2 elite DEs...

                  If Bush isn't available to them, Hawk is the pick.

                    Mario Williams was the consensus 2nd player, and about 1/4 had him #1. Tennessee would have taken him over Leinart, I believe.

                      Hard to say but I think it was pretty clear that they wanted a quarterback.

                        I also think Tennessee would've taken Jay Cutler over Matt Leinart had they still gone with a QB. At least it was indicated that most of the coaching staff (except for Chow) preferred Cutler over Young and Leinart.

                          Hmmm. I was pretty happy that the Texans picked Mario over Bush. I felt that if they picked Bush, NO would have went with D'Brickashaw. Am I wrong? Who do you think NO would have picked?

                            New Orleans was set to pick A.J. Hawk, or that's what was reported and made sense anyway.

                              I had been hoping that Williams would fall to the Packers, but in hindsight I think we're better off with Hawk.
