    Coming up on that time again. Really interested in seeing what Gaines can do with a full arsenal of picks. Have to consider last year's draft a success given what he had to work with. Reid is a stud with Keke/Akins/Thomas showing flashes here and there. Rankin needs a lot of work. We traded our 4th for DT which unfortunately didn't work out at the end but well worth the shot.

    Current Draft Picks
    1st Round
    2nd Rounder (via Seattle)
    2nd Rounder
    3rd Rounder
    5th Rounder
    6th Rounder
    7th Rounder

    Positional Needs
    OL
    CB
    WR
    RB

    Will try to post draft news as it comes out but there a few early notes for the Texans.

    - Not a particularly talent draft class for OL. Could possibly stay put and get a top 2-3 OT.
    - Deep draft for CBs.
    - Extremely talented DL class that could push some position of needs down to us.

    Offensive line: (get at least 3-4 of them)
    1. Dalton Risner, #71 Kansas St.
    2. Tyler Biadasz, #61 Wisconsin
    3. Beau Benschawel, #66? Wisconsin
    4. Michael Deiter, #60? Wisconsin
    5. Andre Dillard, #60 Washington St.
    6. Connor Dintino, #76 Pitt
    7. Alex Bars, #71 N. Dame
    8. Bobby Evans, #71 Oklahoma

    Risner or Biadasz should be picked possibly in the 1st. Depends on what other players are available. Definitely pick 2 in the second round. They could possibly get another in the later rounds. The more the better.

    No Jonah Williams, Jawaan Taylor or Greg Little? Most mocks have them as the top 3 tackles in the draft unless you don't think they'll be there. But ya I'm going 2 OL and 1 CB with our first 3 picks, don't really care which order but we need talent bad.

    Of course heavy on O-line. But keep eye on CB from Penn St. as well

    I think Williams is going top 10. The other will more than likely be gone by the time we pick. I'm hoping Deandre Baker makes it to our 1st pick but I doubt it. I'm willing to go BPA in the 1st.

    David Long, #22 out Michigan is a DB to pay attention to in maybe like the 2nd-3rd round.

    Posting this quote just because I thought it was interesting. Disclaimer that I know less than nothing about NCAA FB. There's obviously more in the post that hits BOB hard, but I found the "dream scenario" interesting. I don't know anything about Harris, but drafting a RB in the first round was a head scratcher for me.

    If cody ford is available, you draft cody ford. Otherwise, wait till rd 2 or even rd 3 for tackle help. This draft needs to be corner heavy for Houston. People will not like to hear it but they will most likely be after maybe 1 or 2 lineman for depth and more back end help on corners

    I think all 4 of our first 4 picks should be OL... just get the **** solved now so we can build around Deshaun in the future

    And who's your starting CB?

    I haven't started looking towards the draft yet, so I don't know many specific prospects, but here's what I'd do:

    Round 1: Take a stud tackle. If ones not available, take a stud corner.

    2A: Get a speedy receiver. Someone that can fill Fuller's role when he gets injured. We've got our slot guys. Keke and Carter are great for their role. We need a dependable guy to play opposite Hopkins. If we had one that was good or always healthy, the offense opens up immensely.

    2B: Offensive lineman

    3: Corner

    4: Running Back

    5: Another lineman

    6:BPA

    7:BPA


    I'm actually quite nervous for this draft. Rick Smith was killer in the first and second rounds, but not so much mid rounds. Gaine seems to have found some mid round guys, even if most thought some were reaches (Jordan Akins), but we have no idea how he'll evaluate the premier talent of the draft.

    Marquise brown could be available at our pick.

    There is a good shot that the Texans take a flyer on Clemson WR Hunter Renfrow in the 4th to 6th round.

    The Texans have a need for another quality WR as our 2/3 can't stay on the field.

    There is obviously the Clemson connection there and I wouldn't be opposed to a second slot similar to what the Patriots did with Edleman/Welker/Ammendola.

    Would be a good pick if Gaines can address the OL or CB in FA first. Otherwise I’m still leaning on grabbing the best of this available. Brown is electric though.

    It wouldn't hurt my feelings at all if Gaine drafted all offense and added two CB's in FA.

    Either way rookie CBs tend to be garbage... I’d look to the FA market for DBs
