    Agree, I think we're dreaming if we thing there's some scenario where Bush lasts until pick #3. NO would take him at #2, and it sounds like he's the kind of player many teams will trade up for.

    He won't last past one in all likelihood, but I think NO passes at #2. They need QB too badly and have too much money in McCallister to make that choice seem likely.

    yeah my concept is that if he IS there @ 3 and we pass

    I still don't see him there @ 3 though

    but if he is, then he better be a Titan

    not that i'm sure how accurate this phrae is, but I've heard, read and seen where Reggie Bush is one of the most promising prospects to come out since Shaun and LaDainion

    rewind the clock and imagine yourself passing on either of those 2
    LT2 went #5 -has 1200+ in EVERY season with no less than 10 TD's
    Shaun went #19 and has never avgd. less than 4ypc or scored less than 14 TD's (rookies season excluded)

    If Reggie is to be anything like either of these 2 ,then I see no reason to trade out.

    The only thing I wonder about Bush is his size. Can he withstain the rigors of the NFL? 300+ carries, while staying relatively healthy and maintaining a good YPC to go along with his yardages. I know thats a question for every RB, but to draft a RB so high, to have so much hype, the questions still remain for me.

    I still think people are selling Dom Davis short

    he's one of the most underrated RB's in the league
    if he had anything resembling a line in front he'd be a top 5 back

    I Can almost see Houston taking a QB before taking a RB

    another scenario has Vince Young and Matt Lienart going 1 / 2

    btw,... Houston fired Dom Capers, but retained their GM
    a new HC might create some influence

    this is going to be one LONG waiting / anticipation game

    Size is issue -isn't he only 190? I just think too many teams will think he's the rare back of the decade - and somebody will trade up for him. Texans are in an excellent bargaining position.

    You know, it might just be possible that Bush lasts until us.

    Houston is happy with Dom Davis and decides on the Brick, New Orleans could trade out for someone wanting Bush but that most likely mean they miss out on Leinart (because we take him).

    But if Houston don't want Bush they will trade out I would imagine.
