    Have you seen the list of free agent CBs? It looks like Kareem Jackson and Bradley Roby.

    If I'm the Texans, I'm taking the best of the top CB or OL available to draft or trade up for.

    Did anyone read this bit from the walterfootball article posted previously:

    "Prior to the 2015 NFL Draft, long-time Texans scout Ed Lambert raved to me about David Johnson and how he wanted the Texans to land him. Bill O'Brien, however, demanded the Texans take Jaelen Strong instead of Johnson in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. As a result of O'Brien's mistake, the Texans still need a long-term running back. The red-zone offense has struggled because of the backfield issues. Lamar Miller is slowing down, and O'Brien could be on his way to running D'Onta Foreman out of town. Imagine if O'Brien had listened to his scouts and Houston had David Johnson to go with Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. In my latest mock 2019 NFL Draft, I have the Texans taking Alabama running back Damien Harris, and he could be a good addition for Houston."

    Good god dang. This, combined with another gem earlier in the article:

    "Sources with the team say Bill O'Brien did not want the Texans to draft Watson. O'Brien wanted Pat Mahomes, and if Mahomes did not make it to them, then O'Brien wanted to draft Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson and have Tom Savage be the starting quarterback for the 2017 season. O'Brien is known to be a poor college evaluator, but fortunately for the Texans, the organization did not listen to him when it came to passing on Deshaun Watson."

    I really hope Brian Gaine is running this draft, and O'Brien just keeps his chin out of it.

    OT
    CB
    RB
    WR

    That’s the order we should be targeting players

    A legit, but time conference, LT please. Sick and tired of watching a small college project suck balls.

    1st round CBs have been very good the past few seasons including 2 of the last 3 DROY. Even Kevin Johnson was pretty good his rookie year.

    I just don’t see CB as being as big of a priority... OL is needed ASAP we can’t let Deshaun get hit like he did this year or we will regret it. What’s the point in having good DBs if your starting QB is hurt?

    Just look at KC they are the best team in the AFC and their DBs couldn’t stop a nose bleed.

    I just don’t think it would be smart to draft a 1st round CB... 1st round has to be OL unless there just aren’t any available with 1st round grades.

    After today's game, we have to get 2 OTs and at least another OG/C from either the draft or 2019 FA class. This is a site I like that has some pretty interesting evals on the top prospects... https://thedraftnetwork.com/2018/06/28/2019-nfl-draft-prospect-database/

    I really would like one of these kids with our first round pick...

    He's their 27th best player and would be a good LT candidate...
    YODNY CAJUSTE https://thedraftnetwork.com/2018/12/10/2019-nfl-draft-player-profile-yodny-cajuste/

    He's their 37th best player and would be a good RT candidate...
    DALTON RISNER https://thedraftnetwork.com/2018/11/28/2019-nfl-draft-player-profile-dalton-risner/

    Depending on how RD 1 goes, I'd like two of these guys in the second round...

    A 3/4 DE isn't a priority, but this kid would look great learning from JJ and gives us potential on DL
    ZACH ALLEN https://thedraftnetwork.com/2018/12/28/2019-nfl-draft-player-profile-zach-allen/

    If we miss out on Yodny in RD1, this kid could be groomed to be our LT for a long time
    BOBBY EVANS https://thedraftnetwork.com/2018/12/23/2019-nfl-draft-play-profile-bobby-evans/

    I love the Wisconsin OL prospects, but not sure where they'll end up in the first few rounds. While I realize we probably need a CB prospect, I'd maybe look to someone we like in RD 3 or 5, and then maybe add another later.

    Yes, and some or all of it has been disputed by more reputable sources.


    And I like walterfootball.

    Your best CB is on the verge of retirement. Your second best is much better as a safety and is about to be a free agent. In a division with Luck and TY, you need CBs. It's the only reason we are worried about playing the Colts.

    They have spent draft picks on the line in the last two drafts (4th and 3rd). There are no sure-fire QBs or RBs in the 1st round so I expect a lot of the good CBs and OLinemen to go quick. Can't wait till it's too late.

    Baker
    Oruwariye
    Murphy

    To be on the board when we draft.

    Well Obrien makes asinine play calls so this would not surprise me at all. This is why I think he a Rick Smith didn't get along.

    Ya hoping the Giants, Jags and Redskins get antsy and pull their trigger early on QBs. This draft is ridiculously rich at DL which is good for us however.

    That would be too good to be true if Baker made it that far down. If so, you take him no questions asked. Murphy would be my second choice.

    What lineman would have to be on the board for you to take offensive line over DB.

    IMO, there will be good enough linemen in the 2nd (Benschawel, Deiter) and 3rd (Evans, Dillard, Dintino) rounds. I just couldn't pass up on players like Baker, Wilkins or Murphy at 27.

    1. CB
    2. OT
    2. OT (Via Seattle)
    3. RB

    We can add another corner and WR in Free agency

    Teams will hold off on DLine since you can still probably get good talent later in the draft. Huge drop off with CBs.
