"There's clearly players at the top of this draft that are marquee players," Casserly said. "Players that are impact players, players that are going to go to the Pro Bowl, players that are going to sell tickets. We're going to get offers for this pick. We've already had discussions with teams. I think there's value in our pick." - Charley Casserly (Texans GM)

Some ppl might say im wrong here but i think there 1st rounder should be ferguson from Virginia...yeah bush is the best back in the nation but no back will do anything in the nfl without a line and theirs is horrible. davis is a great back and isnt he still preety young?...yeah u want the top back on ur roster but u gotta be realistic here

This is interesting...The Texans basically had to guarantee Pete Carroll that they'd take Reggie Bush with the 1st overall pick to get him to come out, and now they are reneging.

Still, after resigning Carr, and already having a quality NFL RB in Domanick Davis, trading for picks makes a lot of sense, and Ferguson would be a great addition if they can get him a few picks lower.

Trading down is a must for the Texans IMO. And I agree that their pick should be Fergueson. He is projected as the best LT since Orlando Pace. That doesn't come around that often. Especially when they can't keep David Carr upright. They have a quality back in Dom Davis. If they trade more picks, they will pick up a first rounder for next season, crucial for a team building a winner. They will get takers for people who want Bush. I think the Jets are someone who should trade for Bush. If they don't keep Pennington, I say look for them to sign Drew Brees, and trade up to pick up Bush. I am not sure of their cap situation, but I think signing Brees, and trading up for Bush would be a good move for the Jets.

I think it has been proven that trading down can really help a team that has multiple needs...

I guess the guy sanding in for Skip Brainless on 1st and 10 this morning said the Steelers would be the team that would benefit the most from this "trade". I don't knowabout you guys, but I would rather not see us trade for this pick, I don't think we need another Willie on the team. Unless we pick him, sign him, and trade him.

I dont see how the Steelers are even being mentioned in the same paragraph as this story.

Did someone actually say this on 1st and 10?

You simply cannot trade up from 32nd to 1st.

In my opinion, I don't see the Texans trading their first round pick. I try not to put too much stock into what NFL organizations state days or weeks before the trade deadline. That's just me though.

I would go along with that sentiment - it gets to the stage where you are trying to work out whether they are trying to double, treble or quadruple bluff you!

About the only thing that is sure is that statements released have no real bearing on what their actual draft strategy will be.

I really cannot see them passing up Reggie Bush - if the hype is true then they cannot afford to miss out.

Texas is a huge market - they need the sort of player who fits right in there.
