    I love Peppers but Cunningham could end up being more productive than him. There were questions about Cam Robinson, hence why he dropped. Dude looks like a guard. Antonio Garcia is the guy that would have been a really good fit but once again, the Patriots traded up to snatch one of the Texan's targets.

    I take it you expect Savage to be healthy to start the whole season.

    Braddock says his pass block skills are putrid, everyone else says they're great?

    I mean, he DID go to UT. It was either Texans gear or...*shudders*...Cowboys gear.

    Well as a Texas City High School grad I love this pick! Foreman gives us some thunder to Miller's lighting, and should help us in goal line situations. Good to have a Texan on the Texans!!

    I can shed light on this. D'Onta gave up 0 sacks in protection, and allowed no hurries. Some will call him the best blocker in college football.

    However, he displayed poor 'skills' during his blocking. As in, he cut blocked nearly everyone, even when he outweighed nearly everyone he blocked. So, some strategists will say his blocking is very poor.

    You could call it poor technique, but extremely effective, or, he's doing what the coaches asked him to do, and excelled at it.

    Does this mean he'll quit running Miller between the tackles?

    Knowing the offensive genius that BOB is he'll likely run Foreman outside and Miller between the tackles.

    Well, which is it?

    I just have to assume that management has a plan for OT and the secondary after May 8, they certainly have the money to spend.

    Like the pick, Miller can't carry the load BOB wants/needs him to. And he was a joy to watch in an otherwise disappointing year. Hook 'Em.

    Still don't get it. He's a great BPA pick, but I guess they want to focus on later picks to build OL or UDFAs.......
