    I really love watching the draft. Going to be different this year without players walking up to the podium.

    Duvernay is someone I'd really like on the Texans but I think he's getting a ton of praise lately and he could go in the first round. Hype changes every week though so never know.

    Hope the Texans aren't as enamored with Laviska as a lot of these sites are. The ceiling is high but his injury history is a huge concern, especially since we cannot realistically depend on Fuller and Keke to stay healthy for a full season. A lot of people like him for his versatility, especially out of the backfield but just don't see that as an attribute for this offense.

    I liked him because he plays physical like Hop and should be able to make the tough catches in the middle of the field that we've been so accustomed to. One knock is his route running so I'm a little bit less enamored now.

    If Zack Baun is at 40 I think we take him.

    Ya he definitely plays a physical game which is fun to watch but probably cost him those missed games. I’d be really concerned with his style of play holding up against a full 17 game season.

    Does no one want to also focus on our secondary more than what they’ve been saying? I don’t know anything about this draft and who will be available but since the best we’ve gotten to help plug that hole is some dude named Eric Murray, is there no one in the late 2nd-3rd-4th that we could get there?

    I think we should target Higgins with our first pick. If he's not there, get Shenault with the second pick if he falls.


    Remember a year ago, before a couple injuries, Shenault was being called one of the best WR prospects ever. A lot of times, these types of guys get evaluated to death and people forget how good they actually are.

    Don’t forget we’ll be getting Gipson back at SS. Think we can reasonably expect *some* improvement from the 2nd year guys like Gipson, Roby, Conley, Hargreaves, and Lonnie Johnson. The DB class isn't that strong so unless someone unexpected falls, think we have some bigger needs to fill up first.

    Isn't Conley gone?
