    I think Reggie Smith of OU was already drafted by San Fran.

    I think Adibi and Diles can be some good competition for one another. He adds speed and depth to the linebacker core.

    only picks i dont like so far are:

    steve slaton- the texans dont have any good runningbacks so we need someone who can shoulder a good work load. Slaton is best used with another good back, however we do not have that other back.... But Slaton did produce his sophomore campaign tremendously so this pick isnt too bad.

    Xavier Adibi- His playmaking and athleticism is good but he is reported as very slow mentally and stupid, all the while lacking football instinct. Always stay away from these type of players, they play with hesitantly and give up big plays in coverage.

    At least these two picks filled two of our needs. I want a safety or DE/DT in the next rounds.

    HUGE dude that can fill up a gap just by standing there. He never lived up to his hype at UT but he has all the tools to be a starter in the NFL. I think his biggest knock is his motor but every now and then he'll make a big play, but he'll eat up blocks just by being in the game.

    He's also a very smart guy (high GPA and took the LSAT as well) who is a good character, basically the opposite of TJ.

    Perhaps so and he will likely need to have an outstanding Training Camp (provided he is even there) to show that he is progressing. If TJ isn't superior to new players in Training Camp, then why would the Texans keep him?

    The Texans have been upgrading the roster and TJ does look like perhaps one of the weakest links left from the past Coaching - Management team.
