First post....

Well i was pretty ticked off when I found out that Mays was returning for his senior season at USC. So im just gonna agree with everyone else and say that with the 1st pick its either Orakpo, Johnson, or the best linebacker available. I dont think any DB's would be worth the pick since Jenkins will be long gone. But next year definately we need to go for a big time playmaker DB. But hey, maybe we would get roy williams in free agency? :)

I want the pick to be Peria Jerry. Mario Williams, Amobi Okoye, Peria Jerry, and Antonio Smith would be epic! :)

I am slowly starting to like Clint Sintim more than Cushing and Matthews for some reason. I think he has more upside than both of them.

Beanie and Slaton would be sweet and Percy/DHB with Andre would be awesome as well but I doubt we go offense in the first round.

A linebacker we haven't really brought up yet that I would love for us to get is Danell Ellerbe. He is really athletic, fast, and most importantly blows people up. Thomas Davis laid huge hits when he was at UGA too, and Ellerbe's game is similarly ferocious.

The Texans were one of two teams that didnt show up for the USC pro day. I am really suprised since with the off season moves we have made points to us looking at linebacker in the draft.

Yes, but the point being we shouldn't look much into the absence as a sign of things to come. I fully expect them to take one of the Trojan LBs (Cushing, Matthews).

You may have a point, 619. But what is the harm of showing up when EVERYONE wants to watch the LB's of USC workout?

I sure hope the texans are gonna trade down...

Cushing and Matthews have been widely speculated to Houston for a while now. There may not be any harm in showing up, however, by not showing up it could send wrong signals to the rest of the league. Especially, in the case where another team, for example, considers trading in front of them for Cushing, let's say.

That or they believe Cushing will be off the board and are no longer considering Matthews that high, while turning their full attention to other first round targets. Also could mean the increasing likelihood of a trade down as already pointed out.

I'd prefer Clay Matthews over Cushing at this point. If Cushing wasn't on the field on third down in college I don't see how he's going to be in the NFL.

I think I like Mathews over Cushing too, even though Cushing looks like he blows up anyone that is carrying the ball.

But I think the value in this draft is in the late first, early second picks. I would love to see a trade down.

I trust the Texan's drafting abilities, though. Based on the last few years...

Now that we have signed Buster Davis and Cato June we have a ton of linebackers. Right now we have Buster Davis, Cato June, DeMeco Ryans, Xavier Adibi, Zac Diles, Kevin Bentley, Chaun Thompson, and Kevis Coley(I would be suprised if Coley makes the team). Are the Texans still looking at LB in the draft?? I have a feeling the Texans will do like last year and make a pick that no one had them taking....

We should take Jarrett Dillard! Seriously though, I wouldn't be surprised to see us take a DE in the first round. I know we got Antonio Smith, but he is not yet a proven entity. Sure he played great in the playoffs, but he was really nothing special during the regular season.

And as teams like the Giants and the Eagles have proven, you can't have enough pass-rushers.

I see the probability of us taking a DE such as Aaron Maybin being pretty high unless we trade down.

1st) Trade down maybe......,Malcolm Jenkins if he is available(Which I doubt). Maybe Raji if he is at #15(Which I really doubt).

Likely Cushing, Matthews or Vontae Davis.

2nd) I'm really really hoping Delmas is there when the Texans pick. If not him, maybe William Moore, maybe Ziggy Hood.

3rd)??RB Andre Brown NCST., RB Cedric Peerman Virgina or S Rashad Johnson(If he is available there).

4th)Roy Miller or Henry Melton...maybe OT Alex Boone

5th)CB Captain Munnerlyn

I don't really like Vontae Davis, I just can't see him as a safety for some reason, and I would not want him as a corner. Delmas would be awesome, as would Ziggy, both are players I really like.

Rashad Johnson will most likely be gone by then, but if not that's a must pick. We need two good young safeties, and Delmas and Rashad Johnson would be a great tandem.

I'd like Henry Melton in the 4th, he has so much athletic ability. He would be a project for sure, but he's pretty versatile. I'm not too big a Boone fan, I think at tackle we just need to wait and see how Duane Brown progresses this year then decide what to do next year. We've got enough guys to back him up, so I say we wait and decide if we should invest a pick on an elite talent at OT.

I'm a big fan of Miller and Melton, but if we go d-line, it's gonna be for a rush specialist. The paper talked about it this morning, 12 of our 25 sacks were from Mario...

Thats a nice selection of guys that have a solid chance of being available where you listed them. I agree with you on Delmas, would really like to see him there for our 2nd. Andre Brown might not last till the third but I could see us grabbing Peerman there and I wouldn't complain. Miller in the 4th is solid and you didn't even list the 2nd 4th from Minnesota. Draft can't get here soon enough.
