    What two picks today would make you happy about the Texans draft? There are still some players on the board. Which two guys will give the Texans an A grade in your book?
    Greedy? Jawaun? Baker? Ford? Little? Risner?

    I'd love two corners. Since Greedy and Byron Murphy will be gone, then Justin Layne & Trayvon Williams.

    If it was OT/CB then Little and Layne.

    This is supposed to be a deep draft in 2-3 round corners.

    Guessing that the Texans will pick a RT and CB with their second picks, or 2 CBs if no RT is still on their board.

    In the third round, guessing that the Texans go CB or S.

    I hope we use them to obtain an LSU corner. Greedy or PP

    Baker is off the board. If I can get one of Taylor, Ford, Little or Risner, I’ll be pretty happy in that itself.

    OT’s like Cajuste, Little, Risner and Ford are all still available. Have to believe that if one of them (maybe even McCoy from A&M) falls to the Texans they’ll be all over that. Bottom line, there’s going to be a lot of really solid players still available well into the second round. No reason why we can’t come out of tonight with at least two more legitimate candidates to contribute right away.

    If Greedy, Murphy, and Sin are gone maybe Love is available.
    If Taylor and Ford are gone, I will take Risner. I will be happy with Howard, Love, and Risner. Or any of the above.

    All of that list will be gone by the time the Texans pick except maybe Risner.

    I'll be happy with the highest rated offensive lineman or cornerback available. A top CB would definitely help our defense with the quarterbacks we have to face in our division.

    Sorry. I was thinking Murphy but typed Baker.

    As much as I love Little I think taking him now will be too much. They would have to have Howard or Henderson at RT and Little or Kalil or Davenport at LT.

    Welcome back Mrs Debbie! Agreed. One of Greedy/Rock/Murphy/Love will be great

    So you would rather have Howard/Henderson/Risner at RT and Kalil/Davenport at LT? Taking Howard where they did, I think we should expect them to start him out at LT. Little would give them some flexibility and IF he pans out, you can have Howard at RT where he used to.

    All those guys will be gone by 54. Lance Zierlein says we'll be high on guys like Justin Layne and Sean Bunting. On the line barring a 5-10% chance that Little or Ford drop, you might see a guy like Max Scharping picked by Houston.

    A starting caliber offensive lineman that we can use while we wait for our 1st round pick to develop.

    Only because I like Risner to play multiple positions possibly even guard. Where I would trust Little with only LT. I only consider moving Howard to the right if they bring Little on. Without Little, it could be Henderson/Risner at right and Howard/Kalil/Davenport at LT. Risner could also fill in at guard if needed. With Little, I think you have to consider moving Howard to right.

    About Tytus playing right and left, his coach was on radio this morning and said he needed Howard to protect the QBs blind side. They switched from a right handed QB to a left handed QB (or vice versa) which is why they moved the tackle

    That's more likely with the way Texans pick
