Dom Davis is a top 10 RB and I think David Carr will be a player in this league if they actually had a line in front of them. I don't want to see Bush in Houston.
Bush would be a wasted pick for Houston when they have so many other holes.
They have a RB, QB, and WR of the future. They have holes everywhere else.
Couldn't agree more. Taking Bush or Leinart would be foolhardy although, for reasons of driving up the price, they have to appear interested in taking either one. If they appear too desperate to trade down, they won't be able to get as much in return.
And whatever they get in return, it *has* to be spot on for Houston. Owner Bob McNair was publicly ripping the GM in today's Houston Chronicle for the Phillip Buchanon trade - a 2 and a 3 for a former #1 who can't tackle and blows coverages.
IOW, the pressure will be on any trade-down for the Texans to get this one right.
