Potential Trade Partner for the Texans?

ESPN.com is reporting that the Denver Broncos have dealt the 22nd pick in the 1st round to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for their 2nd and 3rd round picks in this year's draft. While SF head coach Mike Nolan is quoted in the same report as saying that the Niners "need starters", not just "depth", one wonders if the Texans would take the #6 and #22 picks in this year's first round, and say, and a 2nd round pick in 2007 for the #1 pick overall. Using the Draft Pick Value Chart provided by ESPN.com, that combination would work out pretty evenly assuming the Niners have one of the top three or four picks in 2007, which is a fair assumption. Maybe #6 is too far for the Texans to slide if they want to get Mario Williams or D'Brickashaw Ferguson. Along the same lines, the Jets have the #4 and the #29 in this year's first round. Reggie Bush, anyone?

If the Jets are willing to give the Texans the No. 4 and No. 29 picks in this year's draft, plus a second round pick in next year's draft, I think the Texans have to pull the trigger. You can probably get The Brick at No. 4, but I don't think he'll be around at No. 6 if you make the deal with the Niners.
