A quick lunchtime entry here just to stir some discussion by the two of you reading this.
I was texting with friend-of-the-site “Buck” regarding the Texans next couple of moves in the draft, and I wanted to put this out there for debate amongst the… NONE of you!
As a fan who has no input or idea of what the team is going to do, I would certainly be tempted – were I Rick, Gary, and Wade – to use one of those extra 4th rounders to move up a bit if there was a guy I really wanted.
However the more I thought about it, the Texans, for their style of offensive line play, could really do some damage with those middle picks on the offensive line. Wade Smith and Rashad Butler were both third-rounders, as was Eric Winston, and Charles Spencer who was looking really great before his injury. Chris Myers I believe was a sixth before the Texans traded a sixth back for him to Denver. Mike Brisiel was undrafted, and so on.
It’s a tough call, because the Texans need a lot of help on the line – not just one player. I’d be hesitant to trade any of those mid-round picks unless it’s a guy they just don’t want to miss on.
Food for thought after lunch. BACK TO WORK!
