Gaines Adams happy with decision to stay

Senior defensive end Gaines Adams, who considered leaving Clemson early for the 2006 NFL draft, finished the season with 10½ sacks and a selection as a first-team All-American. He also improved his draft stock dramatically and is regarded by most scouts as a top 10 pick for the 2007 NFL draft. Needless to say, he is very happy with his decision to stay for his senior season. "This feels great," Adams said. "It shows that I made the right decision coming back."

Texans 2007 draft debate

The Houston Texans shocked the world last year by passing on Reggie Bush and selecting Mario Williams with the first overall pick. Houston should have a top five pick for the 2007 draft and the debate has already begun on who they should select.

Do they give up on David Carr and take a shot at Brady Quinn? After passing on Bush, do they add a franchise RB like Adrian Peterson? Or upgrade their defense again with Gaines Adams?

Peterson looks to be the obvious choice, however if Kubiak follows his blueprint from his days as the Denver OC, running back will never be a high selection. Instead he'll choose to develop a low-round RB to fit his system. All his 1000 yd backs were drafted in the 4th round or later, except for one. Terrell Davis (6th Rd), Mike Anderson (6th Rd), Oladis Gary (4th Rd), Reuben Droughns (FA), Clinton Portis (2nd Rd). It seems unlikely they will give up on Carr, so defense could the choice.
