Only the first 2 rounds are set as of now. The 3rd through 7th rounds will be hammered out once compensatory picks are issued. As of now our first two rounds are:

1 - #20
2 - #51
3 - ?
4 - ?
5 - ?
6 - ?
6 - ?
7 - ?

I think we've got the 51st pick. We'll be rotating in the order with Pittsburg and the Falcons.

Here's my wish list:

1. Earl Thomas FS - Texas (Kyle Wilson CB - Boise St.)
2. Patrick Robinson CB - Florida St. (Reshad Jones FS/S - Georgia if Kyle Wilson selected first)
3. Matt Tenant C - Boston College
4. Lagarret Blount RB - Oregon
5. Marshall Newhouse G - TCU
6 Brandon Deaderick DT - Alabama
6. Chris Brown (I hate saying that) RB - Oklahoma
7. Aaron Pettrey K - Ohio St.

*Note* This is pre free agency for 2010.

I'm really hoping for Earl Thomas but the one thing I've learned about this crop of DBs is that there is plenty of good players that will be there for those first two rounds.

Initially I was all for getting interior OL and DL with the first but after looking at the prospects, I see that there's a pretty big drop off after the first top 5 OL and DTs. That's why I figured this could enable us to get the OL in later rounds. I would like to go with a DT in the 3rd or 4th but I just think the two I selected in those rounds are much better players than any DT that would be there.

This is a really good mock draft but Marshall Newhouse had a great Combine and I doubt he's available in the 5th round, he'll probably go in the 3rd.

Earl Thomas is probably my top choice as of now (and probably until our team actually makes the pick or someone picks him) unless CJ Spiller miraculously falls to us. Kyle Wilson would be choice 1B.

1. I'd be good with him
2. I highly doubt he'll be there, but if he is then we gotta
3. I've seen more of JD Walton so I'd go with him. Although I wouldn't be upset with either
4. Character problems will rule out Blount
5. If he's there, cool
6. Admittedly, I don't know a lot on him
6. Doubt we'll draft 2 RB
7. I'd be good with a K here

Robinson in the middle of the second round would be a steal, as would Deaderick in the 6th round. Thomas is my top choice in the 1st as well.

1. Thomas- Love pick, hope he's there
2. Robinson- Probably wont be there, Cox,Ghee Franks or Kareem Jackson should be there.
3. Newhouse- Should be there
4. Blount- Texans wont take him I would, 2nd choice McKnight, One of Hardesty Dixon,McKnight and Tate will fall, I believe it will be McKnight.
5. Newhouse is already gone, Shawn Lauvao would be a good pick IMHO
6.Deadrick- Dont know anything about him, 2nd choice Kade Weston or Martin Tevaseu
6. Brown- I like L.Coker or S.Johnson more
7.Pettrey- Love this pick

You did a great job on your mock. I like how you double dipped the DB's early and got great value. Double dipped in an early rd Tennant and later Newhouse and also double dipped middle Blount and late Brown. Taking a flyer on a DT and a K late wwas also a smart move.

I hope the Texans follow the draft strategy that you laid out. I also would like to see the Texans trade a 2011 2nd for a 2011 3rd. This would allow them to double dip with the DT's Joseph and Weston or Deadrick would be fine with me.

Great job

Thanks.
I double dipped on the DBs because, like I said earlier, the DL and OL prospects that are in the top 5 of their positions will not be there at 20, and then the good players that can conrtribute will be there in later rounds. As for the DBs, this draft seems to be very loaded with them and the top 5 safties and CBs will be there at 20 when we pick.

To me the DBs on our team is where the most wholes are on our team. No real FS, and no real CB. Quin and Mccain played well but I'm not resting on rookies and Reeves has played better but I still don't feel confident with him. I also took into consideration that we are playing against The Colts twice a year. We gotta start getting top quality DBs if we want to stop that team. Having more top quality DBs improves those chances.

When it comes to RB, I was so tempted to go first round. Kubiak not taking a RB in the first round had a small part in me going the other way but it wasn't anything significant. I just believe what we are looking for can be had in the later rounds and Arian Foster gives us youth at the position. So in a way that's like 3 rookies at the RB position. I also believe we are going to make a run at a FA. I know alot of people say Lagarrett Blount has character issues. I see a kid that messed up in college and has been nothing but upstanding since then. If he can show that he's learned from that, he is going to be awesome. Besides, The Texans need to put that away if they want to get good quality players. Especially for a 4th rounder.
I thought going with a late RB just shows what we are trying to do with our team. Even though Slaton is predicted as being 100% at camp, the Dom Davis/Williams situation makes me weary of trusting that. Especially when it comes to back issues because they can be reoccuring. I think Chris Brown in the 6th is not a gamble and a very safe productive pick although I wouldn't mind going with another DT at round 6, after Deadrick.

Kicking is another area we lost games at. Kris Brown must have stock in Reliant or The Texans because they never bring in comp for him. He was pretty much nails before last year but honestly, his struggles were showing in preseason and I always wondered why noone brought him some comp. To me, selecting a kicker in round 7 isn't much of a gamble. Even if the kicker loses out to Kris, he will have improved our team by getting Kris to get better. If he wins, we are talking about a 7th round draft pick that beat out a 10+ year veteran kicker and our team will be better for it.

Blount also had problems being late for meetings and was suspended for it. In addition to the punch incident.

Hopefully the punch helped him realize that he was blowing the chance of a lifetime and he can keep a good head on his shoulders.

I think the draft is the best thing for Blount. It will show him first hand how much money he lost out on for that incident.

I'm sure his coaches will have more insight on him. I just think he's a good talent at that spot and he wont last past that round. We aren't basing our offense around him, and he'd have a limited role as a "short yardage" back while he learns the game, and could POSSIBLY take the no. 1 rb spot.

My reasoning with guys like this is if this team has been built by selecting character guys, there should be enough already on this team to show a kid like Blount how life in the NFL works. If that aint happening....well did you really select character guys? New England had a core of character guys and Randy Moss and Corey Dillon turned out to be okay.

I believe the compensatory picks don't start until the end of the third round, which means we also know our draft pick in round 3: it should be #18 in the round. But, I think Washington used their 3rd last year, so we are actually #17 in that round, or #81 overall.

In later rounds, we cycle through again: we have the #20 in round 4, #19 in round 5, #18 in round 6, and #20 in round 7. Plus we have SD's round 6 pick, which I think is #28. We won't know the overall number of those picks until after the 32 compensatories are announced.

If the Texans have all of these high character guys keeping a repentful Blount in line shouldn't be a problem.

You should Check out Chris Marinelli 6"7 300 Lbs. Played in ZBS at Stanford. He's the kind of guy that Smithiak like to pick in the 5/6 th rd. He's smart has played at a high level.

It looks as if I may be right in two areas - Matt Tenant, and also a place kicker getting drafted though not the one I'm wishing for.

I'm curious about this David Pender. I've seen him play and he really isn't bad. If Texans are looking lower rounds for CB, is it possible we may get a RB with a day one pick, possibly 1st round?

Switch Newhouse and Tenant picks, and I'd be on board with that haul. Be an interesting war for the third down back slot between Jeremiah Johnson and Brown. Lagarette would be a very interesting pick. It would go against everything they have ever done as far as prospects with college checkered histories. But you never know. Take him and put him on a short leash, why not ?

Just looking back to see what my draft would've looked like.

Earl Thomas wasn't there, but Kyle Wilson was. Doing much better than you know who although we should see 3 years from now.

Anyone know what Reshad Jones is doing right now? I think I've heard his name a few times.

Haven't heard about Matt Tenant or Marshall Newhouse. Pretty happy with the FA pick up of Wade Smith which was probably the reason for us not getting a C or Guard this high in the draft. Based on our current pass protection, would've been nice.

Lagarette Blount - boy that would've been a nice pick. Although I can't be too sure since it would require us to run the ball. You gotta think having Arian Foster and him would be a nice one two punch. The fact he was an undrafted fa makes him even better. One of these days our team is going to have to draft football players and hope the choir boys they selected before show the leadership that made us select them over talented ball players.

Haven't heard from Marshall Newhouse, Brandon Deaderick, Chris Brown, or even the kicker Pettrey.

Would like to think the kicker would've been better than Rackers.

All in all my draft wouldn't have been a good one based on not hearing about these players outside of Blount but the OL probably would've made a more significant impact than Shelly Smith did. Same could be said for Kyle Wilson maybe.

it's :cool: to look back isn't it? picked up Blount last week for my fantasy team, all I can say is WOW, dude is a flat out freaky beast, one has to wonder how he stays healthy with the impact he generates or receives when Tate goes down for the season in meaningless 2nd half pre-season game (nice pick by the way)?

I know at the end of the process I wanted the Texans to trade back in the first to pick up an extra 2nd. really liked Devin McCourty as the target CB & wanted to move up in 2nd for Nate Allen, FS Philly.

Glad I was able to get you board the McCourty bus! Seriously though, Blount has a tremendous amount of skill. The issue with him was never skill but character. Could he handle himself in Sheriff Goodell's world. In fact, every NFL team thought the same thing and did not draft him. Now he has a shot in TB after getting cut in Tennessee. If he can keep his temper in check, he can stick around. If not, he won't.

Off topic: I have become interested recently in sports concussions, brain injury, and diagnosing/treatment of mild traumatic brain injury. One thing I am noticing is that many sports concussions (especially football) are concentrated in the frontal lobe region of the brain. One of the things the frontal lobe controls for is inhibition. For those of us with healthy/undamaged frontal lobes we are able to generally control ourselves and emotions. People with damaged frontal lobes cannot. The best NFL players are able to take that aggression and control it, or inhibit it, if you will. I wonder if Blount has some frontal lobe damage caused by various sports/non sports related concussions that have led to/exasperated his anger issues? This type of information will be helpful(if available) when we begin to gear up for our next mocks to help figure out which players have the skillset and mindset to excel at the next level and who is lacking a key component.

Just some thoughts BL!
