    To the Houston Texans owners. Here is a tip from someone who knows football.
    Take the big defensive end from South Carolina ( Clowney ) number one,.. and take the Alabama QB in the second round. He is another Joe Montana, waiting to be snapped up!

    If you don't, you can apologize to me later. Remember,...I'm the one who told John Mecom then owner of the Saints, who had the #1 pick in 1981,...to take Lawrence Taylor out of North Carolina,...instead of Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers out of South Carolina! George was a record breaking college running back who was a big bust in the pros! LT,....well search the history books! Mr. Mecom Poo-Pooed off my suggestion and he regretted it all his life!!!! One more thing,.....when JBG tells you something,...you can take to Texas First,...and tell the Mayor, I sent you!!!!

    Be smart, ....don't be sorry..............[wink]

    Personally, I hope the prospect of being drafted by either Houston or Cleveland is incentive enough for #2 to stay another year at A&M.

    The Texans have lots of holes. They also have some highly-skilled, but injury-prone players. This year, the holes they left camp with were exposed early, and then the injuries to guys like Foster and Cushing, among others, exposed the holes in their depth. Between the draft and free agency, the Texans not only need to fill holes in starter ranks, but also need to improve their depth.

    My suggestion is to make a good deal with another team to provide a number of quality picks for the first pick. See if you can turn the one pick into 3 players that fill big needs. If not, be prepared to grab the best impact player you can get for the scheme.

    If they pick a QB, they need to make sure that he has linemen to protect him, receivers that WILL catch the ball (Hopkins and Graham, can you hear me?), and a running back or two that can stay healthy, hold onto the ball, and gain big yards in key situations. Even Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Dan Marino can't complete passes when flat on their backs

    Bridgewatter or Clowney would be good choices.
    Manziel would be a fun choice but what he does in college games would end his career in the NFL
