    I can't believe Cie Grant (Ohio State) would go in the second round (Cleveland). He is much too small to play LB (and is not as strong as a Dat Nguyen to compensate for it) and has poor coverage skills for a CB.
    I see him more as a 5th-7th round pick who will play special teams, and play LB on nickle/dime situations.

    Heard rumors that if Texans really like Rogers they may try to trade up.

    Any confirm out there?

    Terrance Newman and Musa Smith to Dallas? Not bad at all.

    I don't like the idea of Houston passing on Terrence Newman. Also, this draft is strong with defense, and weak on offense. I don't see Johnson having the kind of career that Newman is capable of. Marcus Coleman struggled alot at CB last year.

    They need to trade with the Bungels to get Rogers...

    There are only so many "franchise" receivers that every come out of the draft...Carr needs someone who is athletic and can catch the damn ball...

    That way the Bungels could get their QB at # 3 and another playa with a 3rd round pick thrown in...

    Why pick Suggs when we just signed Stacey Mack? If Doss or Polamalu is on the board for our 2nd round pick, I'd take one of them instead of another RB. Our safety position was terrible last season.

    I thought Suggs was a defensive player?

    I thought Lee Suggs had bad knees. Ugh, I dunno about running backs with a history of knee issues.

    mack signed a one-year deal because he is not a long-term answer; he may not even be an every down back. and, imo, our running backs played much worse than our safeties last year.

    knee -- no "s." he blew his knee out first game of 2001 season, and was lost for the year. played on it last year, tho, without any problems. it's not a concern.

    Chris Sims in the 2nd round? Thats a joke. Anybody who takes him before the 4th round is insane.

    Anyone think Mcgahee will slip to our second pick?

    I hope so, he'd be a great starter in 2004, once we're sure he's fully healthy. No sense in throwing him out too much when we have one of the hardest schedules in the league next year.

    hopefully, he won't. the texans have reached their quota on guys they hope can rebound from injury. they need players ready to play.

    It would kickass if the Titans wasted their 1st rounder on McGahee and his bum knee.

    how about we trade david carr for a first round pick and a second and pick a qb with ours and a WR with the other and a rb with one of our two second round pick.


    NICE. A QB LIKE BYRON LEFTWICH HE WILL BE LIKE MIKE VICK JUST WATCH WHEN HE DOES TURN LIKE HIM THINK OF ME LPYA2.
