I think OTC has laid out the clearest arguement against drafting a QB (rds 1-3) this year. Though, if JH drafts one, then we're all obviously going to assume that he knows what he's doing. But is it worth it to move up for one? In a year when QB value is so overinflated that it has pushed rd1 talent into rd 2?
I think Houstons best fit would be at 4-3 DE. I would be ok with Reed or Sheard
Why do you think Houston would be better at 4-3 DE?
His draft stock rose when UGA switched to a 3-4 last year and he played OLB. He recorded 18.5 Tackles for a loss and 10 Sacks. Which is more production than Reed and Sheard. I'm not saying Houston is going to be a star as a 3-4 OLB but to dismiss Houston as a 3-4 OLB is just wrong.
And Brooks Reed would have been on the board where we were drafting too. :( From the start, I wanted Peterson and Reed. Seeing Reed still on the board this morning, I still thought that would be a good pick. Haralson is nothing. Yes he gets some sacks here and there, but he does not show any consistant pressure. The same with LaBoy. I thought with two young and athletic OLB's to get after the QB, it might help entice one of those top free agents CB's to sign here and fill that void.
