    Saying they want Mario Williams

    Saying they have not discussed contact with Bush but have had talks with Williams.

    Have not contacted Bush at all? He's already worked out for them and I've heard Bush himself talk about speaking and getting along with the Texans' "brass".

    I doubt that anyone with one iota of football savvy is going to buy this.

    That would be very interesting. I wonder who would jump at the chance to land Bush if the Texans don't take him. Williams will be a stud, but I also just don't see the Texans, especially w/Kubiak as their coach, passing up on Bush. Denver's offense was built on RB's when Kubiak was there.

    I dont see them passing on bush. the only other player the fans here might let them take is Young and that's not going to happen. I would say Bush is a lock for #1.

    I am more apt to believe it since it is coming from Adam. Texans have so many needs they could fill by trading #1.

    I'll believe, with my football savvy, that they weren't getting any offers and had to stir the pot to get someone to actually make an offer. Doesn't mean they're going to take it but they want to see what they could get if they went that route.

    I don't know how this is a savvy move. If folks think they want Williams instead why would someone like the Titans bother to trade -- hell, let them take Williams, let NO take a QB -- then bingo, you've got your RB without making a trade.

    Your savy is pure speculation just like Adams report on Bush. If Bush is so great the Texans are getting offers. Common sense tells me the Texans have greater needs than RB I don't care if the RB is the greatest ever. That RB ain't going to do anything for you when your OL is the worst in the league.

    I think this was Shefter's late April Fool's Day joke to get NFL draftnicks scurrying to rearrange their mock drafts.

    Obviously it creates a bidding war for Bush.

    I don't dispute this. ;)

    Also remember that they have the first pick in round two and the first two picks in round 3. They can pick up some serious first year contributors with those three picks. Because of this they have less of an incentive to trade down if in fact they think so highly of Bush.

    If they draft Mario Williams, there goes every mock draft that has been published right down the drain

    I live in Houston and the local radio said today they will begin contract talks with Bush sometime very soon. No mention of Williams. The Texans will draft Bush unless some team gives them a lot for the pick.

    How so? By saying "we don't think this guy is worth the #1 pick?"

    Seems like an odd strategy. Especially if they want Williams -- there are a limited # of teams they can deal with

    If Houston is not going Bush at 1, then they need to trade down to 3 or 4 and get D'brick and save David Carr's life.

    Note I said "if." I'm not buying this at all. I think they want Bush very badly.

    I think everyone considered it a foregone conclusion that Houston was taking Bush. Maybe they weren't getting any bites on the trade front and wanted to stir the pot.
