I know we didn't do one last year which was disappointing, but I figured we could do a couple this year.

2 or 3 rounds.
Starts after the Super Bowl.
24 hour clock in the 1st round.
12 hour clock in the 2nd and 3rd.
Trades can be done via PM.

Anyone interested, or have any suggestions on how this should be done?

I'm interested. I think if you know a team pretty well, you should be the GM of that team. Obviously we all know the Texans pretty darn well. Count me in and you can slot me with any team that needs filling. Preferably one that actually has a 1st round pick! :)

I may be interested depending on the date, might have something going on. After the combine is a good idea as well.

Someone pick a number between 1-10,000, everyone else guesses closest either way gets the Texans?

I'll take Indy if no one else wants 'em.

Why cant we do one now and one after the combine? Its not like we have anything else to do or we wouldnt be here everyday.:whip:

Why cant we do one now and one after the combine? Its not like we have anything else to do or we wouldnt be here everyday.:whip:

Simply for the sake of accuracy. From now until the combine and pro days, player rankings are going to be very fluid. Guys like Matt Jones are going to come out of nowhere and cement themselves as first rounders whereas guys like Brandon Siler or Lamaar Woodley, who were thought of as first or early second rounders at this time in the process dropped like flies after the Senior Bowl and combine.

That being said, it could be fun to do this now, then one later and compare the two.

DiehardChris
01-15-2009, 06:33 PM
It's the off-season. Why not do one now, LOL.

In fact, it might be interesting/fun to see how far off the first one is from the last one.

We can do the 1-10,000 thing or just give the Texans to the OP. Doesn't matter to me!

rmartin65
01-15-2009, 06:54 PM
I would be game to do one relatively soon. Preferably not this weekend though

This is what we have so far. Let me know if I left you off, or if you want to pick a team.

We will do one after the Super Bowl so we know the order, and then one after the combine. Then we can compare the two and see who's got the insight.

As far as the Texans go we will have to have a drawing. I say we get a MOD in here and let them randomly pick one of the participants. MOD's?

I am very interested in reading but not representing team. Suggestion? Would it be ok to give player's position after the name. Most us will know the guys in first round such as Crabtree but maybe not others not so well known to occasional watchers of college games such as myself.

If we do it how we should do it, we should name the position they play and what college they went to.

It would probably work best if we go about this as we have in the past. This (http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18670&highlight=selection+thread) is the forum mock from before the 2006 draft. One thread is devoted to nothing but the selections. In the post where the selection is made, an explanation of the pick will be present (why this guy was picked, how he fits the system, the role he'll play the following season, etc). After a pick is made, the title of the thread is updated by a mod/admin to reflect who's "on the clock".

Meanwhile a secondary "discussion thread" is made where observers can leave their comments regarding the draft (love the pick, hate the pick, etc). If we follow these procedures, this forum mock will serve it's purpose -- enlightening the board of the needs and draft habits of teams that we don't hear about on a daily basis and elevating the general knowledge of the players available for this draft.

I realize some are opposed to any discussion prior to certain events such as combine but part of the fun for me is to compare guys based on info from so called experts and also from the guys on this MB. It is all, even the actual games, entertainment for me. I still have what if? moments such as what if I had invented the internet rather than a former VP?

They actually have the first pick of the third round. They swapped 3rd rounders in the Williams trade.

Since this is my first time doing this sorrta thing, can we have trades or is this only a first-round mock draft?

And when and at what time is this going to be held?

It will be either 2 or 3 rounds. Most likely 3. Trades are encouraged. This will be getting started once the Super Bowl is over. That way the draft order is set.Also, by that time the Senior Bowl will be over and there will have been a great deal of change in some players' draft stock, which will contribute to the realism.

Yup, that was the follow-up question. So no current players, but draft picks including future picks is acceptable?

Look at it this way, if you are the one who is desperate to trade up or down, then prepare to get the short end of the stick.

For the most part, trading draft picks is pretty fair. The problems arise when you can't exactly match the point values and the guy giving up just a little bit more can't deal with that.

I understand all of that. My point is - to use the chart assumes that everybody accepts the chart - and everybody in the NFL does not. When you trade up, you're almost always going to get screwed - and that's fine if you're dead set on a player you want. Putting the chart into play is going to make people think they're getting screwed even when they aren't getting screwed when you look at it as a real-life NFL situation.

Honestly, I don't see the point of even allowing for trades if we're only doing three rounds... but I'm fine with it either way. I think there will be a lot of trading simply for the sake of trading.

Anyway - it's just for fun. I don't even know why I'm bothering to type this much, LOL.

Can we give bonus points for picking up extra picks or something? I'm just trying to bring up every possibility so there are no questions when picks start.

The chart just makes trading that much more realistic to what NFL GM's do. It's up to the partners to decide what is fair or not.

That was pretty much my question. There would be no reason to get a 4th rounder when there is only three rounds in this mock draft. If we were going deeper in this mock and I wanted to trade back I might want a late 1st, late 2nd & a 6th, but since we aren't going deeper there would be no reason to want a sixth.

I never include trades in my mock drafts and I think that most trades that happen in these things are done by people who just want to "shake things up".

As far as people trading picks after the 3rd round, how about if you trade any picks that can't be used in the mock then the trade is nullified?

Makes sense. The only reason I like the fact that we can trade is because if there is noone I like there at 16 for SD I would want to trade back & pick up a 2nd because they don't have one. I can personally see them trading back for a 2nd if the person they like is gone or they feel like they can get him later in the first.

Ole Miss Texan

Exactly. The mods (If they wanna help *wink wink*) and I will take your pick form this thread and post it in the draft selection thread to keep it clean.

Format-wise for the selections do we wanna try something like this?


1. http://www.thomasinstrument.com/images/texans.gif - Houston Texans


Mario Williams, DE, North Carolina St. - Jr. - 6'7 295lbs
2005 stats: 24 tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks, 1 safety, 1 blocked kick

http://assets.espn.go.com/i/nfl/draft06/photos/200/10290.jpg

Explanation: This selection basically came down to 4 players (Mario Williams, Reggie Bush, Vince Young or D'Brickashaw Ferguson) or a trade down. There was not believed to be value in any trade down scenario presented. Vince Young was not chosen as we just gave David Carr a roster bonus and extended his contract 3 more years. I believe if Carr does not work out, we can trade for a guy like Matt Schaub who is stuck behind Vick. Ferguson was not rated as high as the other two players, plus we can probably get a guy in a few years like Duane Brown at the end of the 1st rd that could end up being better. Bush was passed up because he will not be a feature back that will be able to run between the tackles in the NFL and does not warrant the #1 overall pick. In another couple years, a guy I really like will be coming out: Steve Slaton. His size may drop him into a later round but make no mistake about it, this guy will come in as a rookie and play like a seasoned vet, we'll be talking about the possibility of him making the pro bowl too. This leaves us with Mario Williams. Many don't think he's the #1 prospect but he is, hands down. Mario has the potential to be the best DE in the entire league in only a couple years. He'll be the foundation and building block of our Defense for years. He will be a perennial pro bowler and we'll get to laugh at the rest of the league saying "we were right"... we'll just have to take their ignorant uneducated rants in the meantime.


edit: my explanation my seem outlandish right now but they're just some prospects I think the Texans should look at in the future. ;)

Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech - So. - 6'3 214lbs
Career Stats: 231 Receptions, 3,217 Yards Receiving, 41 TDs

http://www.crabtreezone.com/images/michael-crabtree-2.jpg

Explanation: The Rams have a lot of needs on both sides of the ball. They were near the bottom in a lot of different categories. On the Defensive side of the ball there aren't many players that warrant such a high pick and selecting Defense the past three years they need a change of pace. I was planning on taking Curry but he is off the board. The Rams still have Orlando Pace on contract for one more year and have a number of lineman that with better coaching can be a solid unit. And there is no clear number 1 tackle out there for the taking, so it is possible one may fall. The Rams need a franchise player and with Crabtree playing on a fast surface as he did in College he will put up numbers and become that type of player and eventually replace Torry Holt. This gives the original "Greatest Show on Turf" another option to spread the field and gives Bulger another option which to be honest he didn't have many this past year. Look for the Rams to pick up OL and any Defensive talent in the next round.

Crank that Crabtree....

01-31-2009, 11:50 AM
Wow. That is a very unusual start.

Well, with Scott Pioli coming over from NE to be the GM of the Chiefs, I am going to use some of his perceived reasoning in helping build that team. I feel that he is comfortable enough with a young QB like Thigpin. He has shown enough ability, and I think they have enough hope/faith that he will continue to develop in somewhat of a pattern that Brady and Kassel have taken. I don't think the Chiefs will go with one of the QBs in the first round this year. I was looking to take Curry potentially. I still feel that Brandon Albert is best suited for OG, but I think the Chiefs might want some options. With this 3rd overall pick, I am going taking a player who can play LT or could very easily slide inside.

Kansas City selects - Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia

Monroe is extremely athletic and has all of the ability to play LT in the NFL. He forced Albert to LG at Virginia. They have good experience working well together in the past, and either player is capable of playing inside, more so with Albert. I also think Monroe can play on the right side to give them "bookends".

With the 4th overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft, the Seattle Seahawks select...

Malcolm Jenkins - Cornerback, Ohio State

http://www.dispatch.com/wwwexportcontent/sites/dispatch/images/dec/1230_osu_jenkins_sp_12-30-07_C1_9D8TS66.jpg

Explanation - With Michael Crabtree off the board, who they were hoping would still be available, the Seahawks went with another serious position need in cornerback. Marcus Trufant is solid, but he has nobody opposite of him at all. Offensive lineman is definitely a possibility here, but the Seahawks are deciding not to pass up on a sure threat at corner, even if it is a bit of a reach nabbing him 4th overall.

I really like this pick a lot. I love the thought of having Monroe and Albert next to each other. I started on a mock and have the Chiefs taking Monroe as well.

They would definitely be familiar with each other after playing together for a few years at Virginia. I thought they drafted Albert to ultimately move to LT anyway but maybe they think he would be a better RT and then draft Monroe as their LT prospect. Having bookends at OT for the next decade may sound really appealing to the Chiefs right about now. They need to get back to quality Chiefs football and that means running the football behind a quality and dominant offensive line.

The funny thing is that in the AFC West, its so damn pathetic, that just about any team in the NFL could conceivably come in and vie for that division title. Hopefully the circle of life will his the AFC South one day so were not so damn competitive and brutal. Maybe once Peyton retires, we can make some sense of it all.

Explanation: The Rams have a lot of needs on both sides of the ball. They were near the bottom in a lot of different categories. On the Defensive side of the ball there aren't many players that warrant such a high pick and selecting Defense the past three years they need a change of pace. I was planning on taking Curry but he is off the board. The Rams still have Orlando Pace on contract for one more year and have a number of lineman that with better coaching can be a solid unit. And there is no clear number 1 tackle out there for the taking, so it is possible one may fall. The Rams need a franchise player and with Crabtree playing on a fast surface as he did in College he will put up numbers and become that type of player and eventually replace Torry Holt. This gives the original "Greatest Show on Turf" another option to spread the field and gives Bulger another option which to be honest he didn't have many this past year. Look for the Rams to pick up OL and any Defensive talent in the next round.

Crank that Crabtree....

Don't understand the pick considering they wanted Jake Long last year. Pace won't be there much longer and Barron, while not a bust, hasn't lived up to his pick. Considering with their second pick of Donnie Avery last year this pick almost seems like a waste. Great WR trio too bad Bulger probably won't be upright to throw it to any of them.

Agreed. Hopefully this doesn't turn into a draft where people just draft who they like instead of what a team really needs. I could see why the Rams would take Crabree, but with a new coach I see no way they don't go with Curry or an O-Lineman.

Hopefully everybody will really participate and really try to make this realistic and fun because that's why most of us are doing this.

For example, I'm drafting for the Cardinals so I am researching the team and it's needs so that I can make a realistic mock for them instead of just drafting my favorite players.

Take a look at FS. Fransisco pissed me off more than once yesterday.

I agree about the Rams too. They need heavy Oline and defense.

Yeah, I'm doing it like that too. The Chargers biggest needs are DE & OT per http://www.drafttek.com/teamneeds2009.html. It also has ILB, CB & OG as needs. I've already got a top ten of the players not selected.

I might take a FS since Antrel Rolle should be cut for being a dumb*$$. Did anybody else see what he did during Harrisons' int return in the 2nd qtr? He was standing out on the sideline during the return and Fitzgerald ran into him while chasing down Harrison. Fitz finally caught up to him at the 5 and tackled him into the endzone for a touchdown, but imagine if Rolle is paying attention and gets out of his way. Fitz probably makes the tackle at the 5 and the clock runs out. Game goes to the half 10-7.

While I agree with that, if Moreno is on the board I would take him simply because he is BPA, if he was BPA at the time. The way my board is set up he would be BPA unless someone fell big time.

Moreno fits what we do on offense exactly.

Yeah, if you look at that site's draft needs, it shows us as having our primary needs as DE. Then our secondary needs are RB(f), OG, OLB, and FS. Because of that, the highest rated player that fell to us was an RB(f), so their program had us take it.

However, I disagree with their ratings. I think that DE, FS, and possibly OLB, should be set as our primary need with RB(f) and OG as secondary.

I think it's interesting that they show us as having no pressing needs.

Good selection. I was torn between him and Smith, I think the bengals are as much a lock to take an OT this year as you can get, and the board should set up nicely for them.

I see Jason Smith as having a more immediate impact from a pass rush protection standpoint, but I think Oher has such a high ceiling. I really like the LT's this year.

That's what I've been thinking. How do they feel about Mario Henderson developing as a tackle? Will he be their long term solution at LT or RT? They could have a good tandem with Smith on the left and Henderson on the right.

But since that would be the smart thing to do, they probably will go with Maclin or a pass rusher like yall have mentioned.

I dont undestand this line of thinking. First off I doubt Slaton gives a flying duck what the Texans do with their first pick. Slaton stays healthy this year and continues to play well he will get his money. Secondly the RB position is very important to our offense. Why not have at our disposal another serious offensive threat for depth at a position that takes such a pounding and is so important in keeping our offense going. If Slaton gets banged up and we dont have a good replacement for him teams will unload on Schaub and this team will fall apart.

My first off I dunno.....Slaton bums his ankle. Moreno comes in and lightes it up for a while....then gets the fumbles...

You're screwed....kiss off '09.

Im not saying we should draft a RB in the first just that its not as bad an idea as some here think it would be. This of coarse depends on the RB being the BPA and so good we cant pass him up. IMO LeSean McCoy of Pittsburgh is a Slaton clone and I would not hesitate taking him at 15 if there were no trade down offers and all the top players we want are gone.

As usual agree with your assesment OMT. I think there is better value for this team at defense specifically LB in the 1st round. The one thing that does however, attract me to a pick like Moreno at 15 is who totes the rock IF Steve Slaton goes down? Brown might be back next year, Ahman is likely cut and while Moats didn't look terrible can he take a big load? What round do we go RB at? I think a guy like Shonn Green or McCoy would fit nicely but how long will they stay around? Jeremiah Johnson in the third? The offense exploded this year because we got a consistent running game going with Slaton and my worry is it will regress big time if Slaton goes down early.

Peyton finished the year strong and lead his team into the playoffs but I think pound for pound you could make a very strong case that no player meant more to their team then Slaton. Of course that's JMO.

I don't know...wasn't there a bit of a rift between Barber and Ol' Jerry midseason about Barber's will to play? Would you play for a guy who drafted not only your replacement, but his back up as well? It could've had an effect. With that soap opera ERRRR locker room, anything is not only possible but likely.

If all else falls through, take another OL guy even if it means shuffling the positions. Even with improved play they were at best average. Sad thing is, with guys like Brisel, Myers (even Pitts, but only because of his age) I think that they are just about maxed out as a group.

Moreno is listed at 207 lbs. I think I remember something that Kubiak said about looking at guys in the 215-230 range. I don't think 7 lbs. will matter, I think we really just need a guy who can run straight into the trenches and not be on the ground at first contact.

LeSean McCoy is the best RB in this draft IMO. He also could be the BPA when we pick. If we couldnt trade down I would be happy with him. He brings eveything to the table that Slaton does only he hits the hole faster. He and Slaton would be a dynamic duo.

Why draft a lesser player that has less chance to pan out just because he plays defense? I would rather make a strenght stronger.

But remember that it's pretty rare for this group of guys to draft RB's in the first couple of rounds anyway. They were willing to wait until the 3rd and take a "3rd down back" when all they had was Ahman Green.

If an RB is the BPA available, I wouldn't be too upset if they took them. I'd just be very surprised because I don't think they put the same value on that position that a lot of people do. I think they think they can get another great RB later.

I wouldn't be opposed to start over and you have to send two prospects one pick before it's your pick or you'll pick for them .

I figured the gap between Raji and the next NG was greater than Brown and as you said ... Sintin . I might had looked at OT if one fell or Jenkins .

I also considered the Patriots , Steelers , and Ravens , all took NGs in the 1st round for their 3-4 . I think Raji is like Wolfork .

As for the ... we're on a roll comment ... it meant we made two picks in one day .

With the 11th pick in the Texans Talk Member Mock Draft, Chris, on behalf of the Buffalo Bills selects:

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/09ns8wMdRN0Y9/610x.jpg

BRIAN ORAKPO, DE, University of Texas

Explanation
This one's easy. The Bills have an even worse pass rush than the Texans, and if Aaron Schobel rebounds from his injury - the Bills might be on the fast-track to having one of the better pass rushes in the AFC. Of course that's a big if - but with DE perhaps being Buffalo's biggest need - they're thrilled to select Orakpo, who at this early pre-NFL Combine stage is the top DE in the draft.

Notable Players left:
Mark Sanchez (not Stafford!)- possible teams DETROIT!!!!! Vikings, Bears, Bucs... anybody?

Da na nuh.... da na nuh.. ESPN Breaking news... This is Mel Kiper, Jr. and we have just learned that the Detroit Lions have traded up into Denver's #12 selection spot. What picks are involved is unknown but I'll be first to find out becuase I think I know everything and will let you know if these teams are as smart as me and my big ass head.

---------------

Okay folks we have learned that the Detroit Lions will be giving up their #20 overall pick (originally Dallas' 1st rd pick given to Detroit during the Roy Williams trade). Along with this, it is reported the Lions will also be giving up their 2nd round pick (#33 overall pick or the 1st pick in the 2nd round).

Denver in return, will be giving up their 1st round pick #12, as well as their 3rd and 4th round selections.

Trade analysis:

Denver
1st (12): 1,200 points
3rd (12th?): 210 points
4th (12th?): 78 points
1,488 total points

Detroit
1st (20): 850 points
2nd (33): 580 points
1,430 points

Mel Kiper, Jr. back here folks and it looks like these two GMs are awesome. Get these guys some models or actresses or shoot, I have some lovely flowing beautiful hair! This is a great trade for both teams. Denver misses out on their two top guys in BJ Raji and Rey Maualuga. Detroit, after taking Aaron Curry #1 overall can trade up for another real playmaker. Detroit now has THREE 3rd picks. This sets up well for a team in need of rebuilding.

I think the rule on it was that you can't trade players or future draft picks. But you can trade this years picks from whatever round. You should just try to make the points on the chart come relatively close.

Projected 40 Time: 5.05.
Projected Round (2009): Top 25 Pick.
1/6/09: Eben Britton, who recently declared for the 2009 NFL Draft, has seen his stock soar ever since Arizona moved him over to left tackle.

7/27/08: An athletic tackle who earned a spot on the All-Pac-10 second team as a sophomore.

Washington is in dire need of o-line help and get an instant starter in Britton. Almost went DE here but the top guys don't seem to be Redskin type ends.

We probably won't go 4 rounds or anything but it's still part of "the draft". It makes it tough to trade any distance if you can't use future picks. It may not be fun to get those future picks since you can't use them to draft a player for this mock but I think it should still count towards your overall 'grade' if you will.

Sorry guys I didn't know we were starting this thing so early. Mauluga most likely would have been my choice anyway, but i might've taken Beanie Wells in a trade down scenario or maybe at the #8 spot so the Jags could have a replacement for Fred Taylor.

Not a problem. FYI I swapped the Raiders and Jags picks since steroid PM'ed me and let me know he would have taken Rey with the #7 pick. So the Jags get help on the o-line with Jason Smith since Barnes their current LT gave up 7.5 sacks this season. They can move Barnes to RT or shift him inside.

The Texans select . . . EVERETTE BROWN, DE, FLORIDA STATE

It was between him and Cushing, but I feel that the need at DE is much greater than at SLB. Didn't expect Brown to last this long anyways so this was a no brainer for me.

I figured we would go Brown. We need a DE who can rush the passer and Brown fits that mold. I think some see him as a possible 3-4 OLB, but lets hope that we get more out of this Florida State pick.

I'd love it if the Texans came through with Brown. I think it would be awesome to see him bouncing around the line on passing downs, like the Mario expirement where he stood up to rush. I hope we stick with him and snatch him up to bookend Mario's all around game with a high-motor hellraiser.

I'm halfway on the Aaron Maybin bandwagon. sounds like he's adding some weight and could develop into a great pass rusher from the DE position.

With the 16th pick in the 2009 NFL draft…

The San Diego Chargers select…

Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU

This might be a bit of a reach, but with Igor Olshansky possibly leaving this becomes an area of need. I thought about both Mereno & Jerry with this pick, but the Chargers can take a RB later in this draft, & Jerry is more of a 4-3 DT then a 3-4. I tried trading back where I thought Jackson might still be available but I got no offers so I decided to go ahead and pick him here.

My pick isn't up, but I am at the #19 and I will be accepting trade offers.

I have already made an offer to a team, but I haven't heard back from them yet.

I have also already rejected one offer.

If anyone else is interested, PM me.
