Wow, the NFL must not expect anything at all from the Texans with all these noon games 2 prime-time games and nothing else. Let's just see what happens....

I remember Stevie Brown had a 1 year run where he played pretty good and was looking like a ball hawk. Hopefully he can show something here.
Honestly dont know how to feel about the draft
Yea its tomorrow w/e
If Rick Smith lays yet ANOTHER dud theres no ******* reason why he should be here next year. McNair needs to man up and lets his trash *** go
His 1st round picks are usually money but after that....
Kevin Johnson Newest Texan
Some tape on him
From watching him a little looks like he has good ball skills and actually tries to locate the ball. Its nice to have a big CB 6'0 6'1 he does have a small frame tho dude is skinny dab
Marcus Peters is the better CB and has more potential but that would be a risk with all his problems. Glad they didnt try and take a flyer on someone with character problems we all know how thats worked out for us
Looking forward to the next 2 days and those picks
okoye wasn't big enough? i remember when that guy was supposed to bring us to the promise land next to super mario
feel like the texans have been trying to bolster their secondary for the last decade. jonathan joseph signing year + glover quin was a glimmer of hope that was killed pretty quickly.
kareem jackson has gotten way better since his early years but joseph is on his way out. i'm thinking by the time johnson develops, kareem will be on his way out.
texans are always in a bind.
yeah i remember this but he was also a teenager with no ceiling.
edit: found his gem from the past
"To compare a player to White is something that can not be done without much consideration. But the more you see Okoye on game films, the more convinced you become that he will not only have a long, fruitful career, but will continue to grow both physically and mentally. He has such great fire and plays with the relentless pace that made White the measuring stick for all other defensive linemen. He has the low center of gravity to play over the head of the center, the speed and explosion to shoot the gaps and the quickness to even move out and attack on the edge. Okoye is The NFL Draft Report's top-rated player for the 2007 draft."
I read they were trying to move up for Bud Dupree or Dorsett
I woulda loved to get Dorsett Colts tho
I see us going with a WR and LB today in rounds 2 and 3. Wouldnt be surprised to see us take a RB or TE tho.
Strong, Kendricks, or Perryman in the 2nd would be nice I doubt they take a flyer on Gregory.
even though i'm sure they've improved, for the most part the draft is a bit of a crap shoot. i actually forgot patrick willis, revis, and lynch came after that pick. each arguably the best at their position for 2-3 seasons. but with drafts, okoye's blurb also had
Okoye was the youngest athlete to appear in a collegiate game in 2003 at age 16 … The strongest player on the team, boasting a 475-pound bench press … His 15 tackles behind the line of scrimmage in 2006 tied Michael Josiah (2001) and Ted Washington (1990) for 11th place on the school's single-season record list."
pre-draft they always do the same thing with (this year) kevin white, tavon austin, trent richardson, etc. it's a crap shoot. i remember thinking nick fairly (the big tackle wilfork now is) instead of that jj watt guy.
Benardrick Mckinney Highlights
Jaleen Strong Highlights
Im warming up to the McKinney pick. Looks like hes gonna be a solid player for years to come.
Yet again it seems like were just 1 pick too late. Lockett really grew on me and I felt he wouldve fit perfectly here and we would have finally had that speedy slot receiver but got picked 1 before us smh.
Strong is a nice player and im sure he'll grow into his own and contribute.
Overall I feel like our draft has gone well. We are filling the positions we need which is a good thing but ive felt we coulda gone with different players at a couple positions.
O well we'll see how everything pans out.
Im ready for TC to start!
Reshard Cliett is supposedly gonna move to safety at least thats what I've read.
Drafting that WR outta Michigan St was a head scratcher but can't really expect for this bum to get quality players in later rounds like the other good teams ou there.
Dont understand why we didn't draft a Guard... XSF will be better but dude couldn't even get on the field last year smh. If we have an injury to the line we better hope this WR can block
Also I saw that we are trying to trade DJ... Don't really know how to feel about that. I know he has a knack for making boneheads plays but I'd like to see him play one more season before cutting ties with him.
