A look to the future

2010 Houston Texans


I was looking at our prospects for next year, making the jump from playoff contender to title contender.  I'm very intriuged by the massive Alabama DT Terrence Cody.  He is 6'6 365 and like a brick wall against the run.  I was curious on any of you guys thoughts on how he could fit as our nose tackle in the 4-3 defense.  I personally think he could thrive as a 2 down run stuffer, helping to free up Mario, Amobi, Demeco, and Connor.  If we make or barely miss the playoffs we would pick right around 18-22.  If he falls to that spot, he would be a steal for us. We will probably resign the following players: Dunta, Daniels, and Demeco, while losing: Walter and Pitts.  I think if we drafted an Offensive Gaurd and Wide reciever around the 3rd and 4th rounds, while taking Cody in the first, and a run stuffing strong safety(Kam Chandellor - Virginia Tech - big run stuffer) in the 2nd that our run defense could flourish, and help to make us one of the top ten defensive units in the league.  My rotations would be as follows:

OFFENSE:

QB - Schaub,Orlowsky

RB - Slaton,draft pick

WR - Johnson,draft pick,Davis,Anderson

FB - Leach,Casey

TE - Daniels,Casey,Hill

LT - Brown,Butler

LG - draft pick,Studdard

C - Myers,Caldwell

RG - Caldwell,Brisel

RT - Winston,Butler

DEFENSE:

RE - Williams,Barwin

RT - Okoye,S.Cody

LT - T.Cody,Okam

LE - Smith,Barwin

SLB - Cushing,draft pick

MLB - Ryans,Thompson

WLB - Diles,Adibi

SS - Chandellor,Barber

FS - Wilson,free agent

CB - Robinson,McCain

CB - Moulden,Reeves

Nickel - Bennett,Quin

Any thoughts on this team being able to legitametly contend?
