The Texans (reportedly) love Patrick Peterson

Mississippi v LSU Getty Images

The Texans were desperate for a starting cornerback this year, to the point everyone fully expected them to take their top-ranked with their first pick, and that’s exactly what they did.

They drafted Kareem Jackson, he started all season, and few cornerbacks in the NFL played worse last season.

Now they are as desperate as they were last year, if not more.  A lot of mock drafts have the Texans taking Prince Amukamara if he falls to them, but SI’s Peter King indicates Houston is aiming higher.

“Houston loves Patrick Peterson,” King writes.  “Capital L.  I smell a trade-up.”

The Texans would likely need Peterson to fall out of the top five picks to make such a move, but that’s certainly possible.  Of course, this is misinformation season, so anything is possible.

    Who doesnt want PP. Im assuming he is a top 3 player on nearly every draft board.

    Patrick Peterson will be a Philadelphia Eagle after they trade Kolb for either Cincinatti or Arizona’s 1st round pick

    Garb Darnit! I think We got a WINNER!!

    So let me get this straight… The team with the WORST pass defense in the NFL actually covets the BEST defensive back in the draft?

    In other news… Water is wet.

    Smoke Screen……. The Texans really want that Von Miller.

    Is this a part of your “misinformation” campaign?
    It’s so hard to tell here…

    So when Peter King carries water for a team, or an agent, what does he get in return? Do they pay him off in frequent flier miles or something?

    GREAT REPORTING!

    Can’t trade players, only picks till new agreement is reached.

    Von Miller is not falling past the top 5 Whitemike55.

    The NFC north is out of the Madden 12 race……Vick vs Hillis now……At least it isn’t a GB QB…I’ll buy it now….GO HILLIS!! BEAST!!

    Kevin Kolb and Mike Kafka for Peterson and a 2nd rounder.

  13. thefiesty1 says: Apr 18, 2011 12:27 PM

    The Texans don’t know what they want and never will. A record of 8-8 or 9-7 and missing the playoffs is all they have in their future not to mention the past. Not going to happen.

    Considering players can’t be traded at all right now, how exactly do you plan on that happening?

  15. jams56 says: Apr 18, 2011 12:40 PM

    For someone claiming to be the captain of wisdom you don’t know that players can’t be traded durning a lockout .

    Except players can’t be traded for picks…

    Cpt. Wisdom may note that sans a magic CBA pre-draft, there is no player trades allowed.

    As for the article…DUH!

  18. goldrush36 says: Apr 18, 2011 12:50 PM

    If he makes it out of the top 5, I see a very slim chance Cleveland trades down and an even slimmer chance of the 49ers trading back as they need a corner and would surely take him there if still available

  19. medialovesthecowboys says: Apr 18, 2011 12:53 PM

    Didnt they LOVE Dunta Robinson too?

    And he had played up to top 10 hype until blowing out his knee…

    “captainwisdom”???

    Regardless of the trade difficulties related to the ongoing labor talks, just what, exactly, makes a guy with less than 2100 total yards passing in 4 years, more INTs than TDs, a mediocre won-loss record, and a ho-hum QB rating worth a top 5 pick? Not much in the way of “wisdom” from what we can tell.

    Going to agree with this, until his knee blowout, he was a great CB. He earned himself a HUGE payday in ATL because of the stuff he did before the knee gave way, which is why Houston let him walk.

    So they would have to trade up with Denver in order to secure Peterson correct?

    Too bad McDaniels is not in town, or they could have fleeced Denver out of a first rounder in 2012 in the process.

  24. galvestontexans says: Apr 18, 2011 1:43 PM

    Would love to see Peterson as a Texan

  25. marinofreakout says: Apr 18, 2011 2:27 PM

    if there is a team that trades up this much in the draft, this one makes the most sense. the dude is gonna be a probowler next year eh i take that back, not if hes on the texans. Hell prob defend like 4 passes all year-the rest of that secondary is that embarrassingly miserable

  26. larrydavidstern says: Apr 18, 2011 2:32 PM

    It doesn’t matter who they draft as long as Gary “I’m just a coordinator” Kubiak is their head coach! Another 8-8 year here they come!

  27. tinytim4115 says: Apr 18, 2011 2:43 PM

    if they dont trade up for peterson, i would love to see ryan kerrigan as a texan

  28. goawayeverybody says: Apr 18, 2011 3:24 PM

    Yeah too bad the Texans will never get Peterson. Boo hoo.
