    2010 Draft Thread

    Some might think it is too early for a draft thread, but I thought it might be late enough in the season to start one.

    At this point, I would say safety would be a strong possiblitily. This is a good year for safeties, all things being equal. But what about running back?

    I loved the Steve Slayton pick, and I think he is a nice player. But his fumbles are becoming a liability. What about drafting a runningback in the second or third?

    I would have rather had Wilson in rd one, but they didn't make a bad pick.

    Tate-I think he will do really well. But I have two problems with the pick. Number one is I STILL believe in Slayton. If he returns to rookie form, no other back is needed. And I believe he can. My second problem with the pick is I think he could have been taken later, or another runningback with a similar prospect grade could have been found. Not good value, but a good player. I just can't love the pick.

    I am ok with third round, but drafting linebackers and tight ends? I would have thought this would have been the bottom of the list of needs. On the other hand, if these were truly best player available picks, I love that in the later rounds.

    All in all, I am not in love with this draft. But it is not bad. I am having trouble getting excited, though. I think Tate will change my mind though, when he goes for 1,500 yards!

    Big kudos to yall for your A+ draft, & to Texas Homer for that great predraft call on Kareem Jackson.

    Lots of luv for your #1 & my homer pick of Jackson, whom I've watched for yrs at Bama. He was the 2nd fastest player on the team behind Javier Arenas, vs. Mississippi 2 yrs ago Dexter McCluster broke a tackle & ran free for >65 yds & Jackson chased him down from behind to save the TD. this guy is a gamer, & nobody prepares CBs for the NFL better than a Saban defense with his disguised coverages & man coverage jamming from the LOS.

    Tate will be an instant starter & bigtime power back help right away, great fill for a running game that was awful (30th last yr?), some compared Tate to a young Marion Barber III at Dallas in his running style. I had him as a late (3rd or later) rd. value pick in this draft.

    The team has established its own unique identity now under Kubiak, not Denver South anymore! The Texans are the fastest-rising team in the NFL now, Schaub has impressed me ever since colege at UVA & has been The Answer, like manna from heaven. I think they're an improved OL & maybe another good DL to complement Mario & Okobe away from the playoffs. Got to beat Indy though & post a better division rcd. -- Indy has the best home rcd. in the league & somebody has to knock them off their pedestal, might as well be the Texans.

    I also like the Texans signing UDFA OT Adam Ulatoski. I hope he makes the team.

    I'd give the Texans a solid (B) grade on the draft. It is still too early to tell.

    I like the Jackson and Tate pick. I think the Texans might have reached a little for Tate, but I think his running style for fit in well with the Texans.

    I like the LB Darryl Sharpton from Miami. I didn't know the Texans were going to take a LB as early as the 4th Round. I hope he pushes for a starting job.

    The TE pick surprised me.

    I really really like CB Sherrick McManis from Northwestern. I think he is going to be a good player. I liked him as a prospect at NW. I think the Texans got good value for him in the 5th.

    I also liked the WR/TE Dorin Dickerson pick.

    Ya'll took another TE earlier (I'm assuming Dickerson will play more Slot than TE for ya'll though), and took a few TE's last year. That mean ya'll aren't planning on re-signing Owen Daniels and are preparing/grooming his replacement(s)? I think lettin' him go would be a major mistake.
    I think like 3 of our TE's had surgery and 2 of them wont be ready by training camp.

    Trindon Holliday huh? Well, lets see if he can catch in the NFL, he is a KR at best right now.... But he is dirty fast..

    Oh good another TE in the 7th. Lets see we now have 6 TEs on our roster if im right. That makes a lot of sense, since most teams only keep 3 on the roster. Im pretty upset we didnt take a chance on Rolle in the 6th. I guess we dont need help at safety since we didnt draft one, i thought we did, but i guess i was wrong.

    I liked our first two days, dunno about today though. I like the Trindon Holliday pick, he will be a damn good return man.

    As happy as I was yesterday I really dont understand some of todays picks. A LB and a TE in the 4th?????? Why do we need another TE? We are done in the 6th and no safety yet????? Maybe we will get a safety in the 7th that will not make the team.

    Good day today. I really like the Tate pick. I dont know the DT from Arizona, but we filled a huge need.

    I saw a deal on PFT that the Texans were in play for Haynesworth. I guess that didnt work out, but I was shocked to see that we were interested in him.

    Yep, I still think Kyle Wilson would have been a better pick, but Kareem Jackson will be a good CB for us. Hopefully we can pick up a good offensive lineman tonight. Vlad Ducasse could be a mauler at guard, I dunno about the center value in the second round though.

    I have no idea if some of these guys will be there when the Texans pick. I tried to address all of the Texans needs.
    I think you are the only one that saw Kareem going to us, great call!!!!

    I have to say im pretty dissappointed that we passed on Kyle Wilson, also Dan Williams fell to us, that would of been a nice pick to. But I know I shouldnt doubt what the Texans do on draft day, they seem to be right more times than not. I just cant get excited right now.

    I really hope that over the night Steve Young loses his voice, i cant stand listening to him.
