Texans draft Q&A with Matt Waldman

I know Texans. Matt knows draft. We mix these things together to create something better than a Reese's Peanut Butter cup. Focuses on WR, CB, NT, OLB and low round RB.

Revisiting 2011 draft-day trades

Trying to numb the pain of watching the Giants win it all, I went searching for mock drafts. I was hoping to find something that went beyond the standard pre-free-agent guesses, like maybe players already in the league who could surprise this year ... and I found this: It's a re-analyzation of the draft-day trades based on who the picks were actually used on. So for instance that year when we dumped Reggie Brown on the Bucs for a 6th rounder becomes: Philadelphia Eagles traded Reggie Brown (2010) to the Tampa Bay Bucs for David Carter. Philadelphia Eagles traded David Carter to the Arizona Cardinals for Reggie Wells. Our net gain is Reggie Brown for Reggie Wells ... or basically nil. In any case, since the Eagles make a ton of draft-day trades, it's interesting to revisit who the player-for-pick trades actually turned out to be. Everyone from Jamar Chaney to Casey Mathews is involved. I didn't find many instances of them really getting burned. I mean I guess we could have had Jah Reid instead of Marsh and Kelce ... take a look. Do you see any instances where you wish they hadn't made the trade?

Mallett draft analysis.

Talk about detailed. Kudos to these two for such good investigative analysis. Nice to read something positive about Mallett after the last few weeks of negativity.

Why Christian Ponder may be the 16th pick of the draft!

A lot of people have Locker going high, but if you attribute Ponder's lower ratings to his recent injuries, he rates out as an elite talent. I know, I know. Injuries are injuries! But I like Ponder. This article is much more balanced in its view of Ponder, but if its in anyway right. This would be a perfect GM Smith pick, and of course would again be a 'suprise' pick.

NFP: OT Tyron Smith to visit Dallas Cowboys

National Football Post: USC blue-chip offensive tackle Tyron Smith is scheduled to visit the Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings, according to league sources with knowledge of the situation. At the very least they're doing their due diligence, but this is good news for those hoping they'll pick him, they are at least considering it, especially if they can trade back a few spots (e.g. with St. Louis at 14)
