I know its highly unlikely but if that happened it would be good for both teams... if I was the texans I'd consider it, but ask for their first next year. Then I'd take Lendale and a RT, also a impact defensive player with my second rounder. more value

if the texans trade down, it going to have to be completely out of the top 5... otherwise it's pretty pointless for them. MW is their #2 choice, but ANY trade would make it impossible for them to take him.

they are an anual contender... they seem to keep their O and D both in the top 5-10 every year and haven't had too many issues getting into the postseason. They need major playmakers though. minor upgrades aren't going to help push them over the hump.

I know I said yesterday that it wasnt a smokescreen. But then I heard Charlie Casserly gush about Mario Williams on the NFL network's draft preview. Either he's determined to destroy all intrest in the first pick, or it's a really obvious smokescreen. Nothing about Bush the enitre piece. Just Mario Williams.

So if they trade down to 4, they might even be targeting D'Brickashaw, even if Mario Willams is there. Mario is a better player IMO, but it's kinda weird that the Texans would go so far out of their way to not target Bush or Ferguson

Actually it isn't. Welcome to the 2 weeks prior to the draft.

I don't think they will trade anywhere past 5. My guess is either the Jets trade up to 1 for Bush, or Houston makes the pick.

Re: Texans | R. Bush not a lock to be No. 1 draft pick?

This is somewhat interesting (from nola.com):

"Since the inception of the Super Bowl, no running back who has been the No. 1 overall pick has been the primary contributor to a team that has won the big one. The lone exception: George Rogers, the first overall pick by the Saints in 1981 who won a Super Bowl ring with the Washington Redskins near the end of his career. None of the others - O.J. Simpson, Ricky Bell, Earl Campbell, Billy Sims, Bo Jackson or Ki-Jana Carter - played in the Super Bowl."
