Sophie's Choice: Corner, Safety, Or Nose Tackle

The 2011 NFL Draft is in the books. Free agency is still to come...sometime. Assume with me that Bob McNair comes to you and says, "Stalwart Fan Of The Houston Texans, I have precisely enough money to add a starter, via free agency, at one position." With the three most glaring holes on the roster appearing to be cornerback, free safety, and nose tackle, which position are you filling with Uncle Bob's money?

Further assume that by choosing your position to fill, you're necessarily going with the status quo at the other positions. In other words, if you add a starter at nose tackle, you're going with what's already on the roster to address free safety and cornerback.

What do you choose? And what specific player are you throwing money at?
