    Where you played in college isn't always where you play in the NFL....is this new to you? C.J. Mosley was an OLB in college too, but he's an ILB prospect for the NFL. It's very common for guys who play OLB, ILB, DE, or CB to have a different fit in the NFL. OLB's sometimes are ILB prospects, ILB's sometimes are S prospects, CB's sometimes are S prospects, DE's often are OLB prospects.....none of this should be new.

    Jimmy G, take him. Think the Texans have liked him from the beginning after Bortles.

    Give me Tuitt and Mettenberger, I guess. I'd be happy with that. Although Mettenberger is a knucklehead type who you may not want leading a franchise.

    It's not just on defense where it happens either, sometimes kids play C in college and are guard prospects, sometimes they play guard and are OT prospects, sometimes they are OT in college and are guard prospects. What you did in college is almost irrelevant when you don't fit that position in the NFL.

    Don't reach on a QB, take the best player available.

    Probably in the 7th now, he's got a spinal problem and he failed a drug test on top of the knee recovery and sexual battery charge.

    I'm very aware of changing positions from college to the NFL. I'm also aware that it doesn't always work out. When you've played a particular position your whole football career, it becomes natural. it takes adjustment to just switch it up in the NFL. It's okay to have one, now you're going to have two???

    Again, you are talking like it would be a rare thing.....most teams will probably draft at least one or two guys who will have to technically change positions to be an NFL player....it's really not as big a deal as you are making it seem to be. The #1 ILB prospect played every snap of his college career at OLB...

    Also, it's not a huge move from DE to playing the elephant OLB 30% of the time.

    Maybe our nickel front should look like this:

    Reed Cushing
    Mercilus Hageman Watt Clowney

    I'm thinking Nix has that quickness and size, but maybe Hageman's brute strength, athleticism and size is more effective in this system? I'm not sure. Can't wait to see who we pick.

    Marquise Lee is the most talented, he was my #3 WR in the entire draft, then Stephon Tuitt, Ra'Shede Hageman(major bust potential) and Finaly the RT Kouandjio

    All those space bars for nothing. I think you guys know what I'm trying to say though.
