    Any of these Seahawks players:

    Earl Thomas
    Richard Sherman
    Kam Chancellor

    ???

    Then draft Clowney to replace JJ with the #1 pick.

    No. Literally no one player in the NFL, however if it was all three of them I'd have to consider it.

    Aaron Rodgers.

    That's the end of my list.

    I'd do it for Andrew Luck (age and talent)

    Richard Sherman on Earl Thomas:

    “I think Earl Thomas might have one of the highest football IQs I’ve ever heard of, and he studies the game to a T,” Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said last week. “He studies it day, night, night and day. In the morning, at night — he’s probably studying it right now. You’ve got Kam Chancellor, who does the same thing, he studies the game to a T. So when you see [strong safety] Kam Chancellor going downhill to make those huge hits and those huge plays, and Earl going to make those, it’s because they know the play is coming. They’re not guessing out there. It’s a real testament to us as a group.”

    We need to draft guys like that.

    As mentioned
    1) Rogers
    2) Luck
    3) Earl+Cam+Sherman

    Hell no...!!! Those guys are great because Seattle's defensive line is so great (to go along with the hard work they put in as individuals). It's hard as heck to throw and run against a team that can control the line of scrimmage with just 4 guys.

    Trading J.J. would just be moving backwards. Trading Johnson _ different story...

    We need to be able to draft guys outside of the first 2 rounds. You can help an offense a lot by drafting 1 guy. You need to draft a bunch of guys to really change a defense, and they're not all going to be high round picks.

    That Seattle secondary. Sherman: 5th round pick. Chancellor: 5th round pick. Maxwell: 6th round pick. Malcolm Smith was the SB MVP and he was a 7th round pick. If the Texans want to be a more solid team, they need to get some hits from the later rounds. On both sides of the ball, 12 of Seattle's 22 starters were drafted in the 4th round or later. That's the difference between the Seahawks and Texans.

    Earl Thomas is overrated a bit. Check out his PFT grades. Kam Chancellor is a gimmick player and doesn't fit in any defense. Seattle has a ton of great players on D, a ton, but the sum of the whole is greater... it all fits together.

    Did you watch the game? They blitzed 6-8 times max. Seattle gets a rush from the front line. It all starts there. That's the foundation. If anything that game should have taught you we need Watt more than ever. It should also make you pause and think about the impact of adding Clowney.

    JJ Watt is a one man wrecking crew on the DLine. He is becoming a force that can no longer be game planned, but slowed. WHY WOULD YOU CONSIDER TRADING THE ONLY VALUABLE ASSET THIS TEAM HAS ON DEFENSE??? The Texans are gonna shape their future around this man, and everyone else is secondary.

    Adding a player like Clowney would only make JJ Watt's impact more noticeable, bc you can not double both Clowney and JJ. And if they do linebackers are gonna have a field day.

    The goal for the Houston Texans should be to garner an identity. Andre Johnson is well past his prime and this team has no longer youthful pieces on offense. However, defensively we have the best piece to anchor around: JJ Watt. This thread is totally idiotic.

    Literally the only player I would trade JJ for is Andrew Luck, but no one is doing that trade so this is silly. I will stop following the Texans if they lose JJ for whatever reason.

    I'm surprised there are so many people so high on Andrew Luck. I might trade JJ for Aaron Rodgers, but probably not even him.

    Luck is cheap, Rodgers jams your cap up for eternity.

    Luck hasn't made the jump to elite status yet, and there's no guarantee he will. Wouldn't trade JJ for him.

    Count me in to the group of people who wouldn't trade him for Luck. At least not until Luck proves himself to be elite -- as Fullcourt said, he isn't elite yet.
