I see a good season for him, but not those kind of numbers. Sure he has a new QB, but hes only getting older and I don't see him posting numbers like he used to.


I dont see Horn posting big numbers again either. New Orleans actually has some weapons now. Stallworth coming on last year, Hilton could make strides this year and Reggie Bush will all eat into his numbers.


I do like the Roy Williams and Donald Driver picks alot. Both should have nice years from where they are being drafted.

Apart from their having other people to throw to, I don't understand why people can be so excited about Brees after that kind of injury... Why are people so confident in him after that, watching that happen was brutal, and that is not a good hurt for a QB. I see the same problems Pennington had last year in Brees future. Lack of being able to get out a long ball with a meh line.

I don't think anyone will duplicate what Steve Smith did last year but a few guys being drafting in the same range as Smith was last year are Driver, Ro. Williams, and J. Walker. I think all 3 will fare quite well but not put up 2005 S. Smith numbers.

If you are looking for later round guys with good potential then take a strong look at Reggie Brown and Michael Clayton.

Yes. Center Mike Flanagan from GB is older, but he's still got 1-2 good years left in him I think, and should anchor the interior for them. Both their 3nd rounders spent on a G and T were guys expected to go way earlier and ranked by most as at least top 5 in their position this years draft. Its not as much I think they should've done, but its a definite improvement. With Eric Moulds, they also make it harder for defenses to shut down AJ because they actually have to cover someone else too.

How about Micheal Clayton? Guy played extremely well 2 years ago. Gets a lil banged up, has a teammate that steals all the attention and Clayton gets forgot about. Sound a lil like Smith anyone??

alright well thanks for the info. ;-D havent really been keeping up with the houston info.

but what you explained really doesnt excite me much. basically they added an old center, a washed up wideout and a G and a T who probably arent even going to start correct? i dont see andre in the top 10 this year.

Well since you stated it as "This Years Steve Smith", then you must be asking us "What Wideout Will Come From An Injury, To Become The Number 1 Wideout?". The answer is plain as day because there really only is one choice. Javon Walker. But he won't become the number 1 wideout in a strong rushing orientated offense, so there is no answer. Sorry.
