    Another thing to remember is that if Coweher does come to Texans and brings a 3-4 defense, it could change the way the Texans draft. They will need a 3-4 outside linebacker opposite Connor Barwin. Derrick Morgan, Sergio Kindle, or Jerry Hughes could be that guy if you want to draft one in the 1st round. A little later, guys like George Selvie, Jermaine Cunningham, or Brandon Graham will be there.

    Cut Chris Myers and Chris Brown ASAP. Let Caldwell takeover OG and draft a C. Also need a space eating DT, CB, ball hawk S, and RB.

    Resign Owens, Walter, and Ryans.

    Let Drob walk.

    Joe Haden is #1 on my list. Second round should be either to improve our running game or O-line.

    i don't care if the rest of our picks are for the Offense, but i'd like Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh. i don't care about 3-4 or 4-3; that kid is a beast.

    Even if we lose all of our remaining games I can't see how we will be in position to draft these guys

    Detroit would if they are up there again. It's possible that they end up with the #1 pick again...at least in the top 3. No way they can afford to shell out that kind of cash for the 2nd consecutive year.

    Suh is projected as the #1 overall pick on most boards.

    I think if we get a more aggressive front office/coach the Texans could move up and pick up a stud player because teams, specially the ones who picked high last year, just don't want to pay so much for unproven talent. This is where McNair and his billions may come out to be a major benefit along with the uncapped salary cap. If we don't move up, I would like to give a look at Spiller or a big DTackle.

    Safety, corner, defensive tackle, and a center are all HUGE needs

    #25 and #32 on deffense for the Texans cannot tackle and probably cost the team two games in the early season. Find a way to replace them and we can see the Texans in the playoffs.

    DB, DT, RB and WR.

    secondary first, offensive line next, another receiver after that, another running back after that.

    1. CB - I don't expect Dunta back next season, gotta find a good CB. Haden could be available.

    2. DT - Can't believe how inept our D-Line is despite the resources spent on them. Terrance Cody could be available, Suh is out of the question and we'd have to move up for McCoy.

    3. S - Pollard was a good pick up, I would love to add a ballhawk back there. Berry is gonna be gone and I'm not sold on Mays at all. Earl Thomas could be a first round pick should he come out.

    4. RB - I'll throw up if Chris Brown is in a Texans uni next year. I don't expect to use a high pick on a RB, but Spiller/Dwyer/Best all could be available in the first. Dwyer would be a nice big back to pair with Slaton.

    I also want Meyers gone and hopefully Caldwell will be our guy.

    I wish we could just go raid Alabama and take Mark Ingram and Terrance Cody. That would help solve a lot of this teams problems.

    Ive been watching alot of Bama games lately and like I said, McClain is a BEAST. A playmaker with that edge. Now linebacker is definately not a need (unless you want insurance on the DeMeco contract situation) but remember back a couple of years when we passed on Patrick Willis because we already had Ryans? I think the two could easily have played together and imagine that combination! That alone makes me want the Texans to atleast stop and think hard if McClain is there staring them in the face
