Marshall Newhouse, Mike Johnson, or Mitch Petrus any of which would be great but Newhouse is faster and much more mobile and would seem to be a better fit in the ZBS.

Not advocating drafting him, but just wanted to point out that Gerhart is still on the board.

I hear a lot of people suggesting he will be drafted in the 2nd round, and that we should draft him with our 2nd pick. I think this mock shows that he should be available in the 3rd. There are just alot better players than him in this draft.

Eh, we are not real GMs. I would be ecstatic if Gerhart is available in the 2nd, but I really dont see it.

Hou Tex must be gone for the weekend.

The OG's seem to have the most value at this point. The good DT prospects seem to be gone and the FS prospects aren't as good as the OG prospects at this points.

I think Mike Johnson will be a very good OG but Marshall Newhouse seems to fit the ZBS better. Go check out their stats from the combine Newhouse is faster and more agile which Kubiak seems to like.

Give me Newhouse,

If Caldwell couldn't beat out White and Caldwell was a 3 yr starter what makes you think Johnson can. Plus Johnson didn't show the athletism at the combine to be a fit in the ZBS. IMHO

Petrus would be a better fit in the ZBS than Johnson. IMHO

One of the biggest things when looking at the OG's for me is where they're projected to play. In my opinion we don't need just an OG because he's rated highly... we need a LEFT GUARD. We need a guy that is going to beat out KASEY STUDDARD. For RG we've got Brisiel and Caldwell battling it out. It will be interesting to see where the new guy Smith ends up.

I can't speak for Newhouse, those more familiar please chime in on where he might fit. I was a big advocate of trading a late rd pick to Denver for Chris Kuper. But from what I'm reading, his ideal fit is at RG and I don't automatically assume a player is going to transition to LG with no problem.

Here's what Drew Boylhart says about Mike Johnson and why he's got my interest:
STRENGTHS
Mike is a smart, talented left guard who has the athletic talent to play more than one position on the offensive line. He is quick enough off the snap when blocking for the running game. Mike has good balance and quick feet that get him out to the second level for a screen or to take LB's out. He shows very good lateral agility when pass blocking and is strong enough to handle the bull rush. He's also quick enough to adjust his blocking assignment to handle any stunts thrown at him. Mike shows good mental stamina to be an excellent left guard in the NFL and looks to me on film that he could play Left Tackle, Right Tackle and either guard position.

NEEDS TO IMPROVE
Mike will need to go to the combine and prove through agility drills that he can play the left tackle position. If he can do that, he will shoot up the charts faster than a teenage boy turning off his computer to hide his porno sites from mom who's knocking on the bedroom door.

BOTTOM LINE
Mike is a starting left guard right now. He should be able to start for the team that drafts him at that position the day after you the draft. That means he has first round talent. What will dictate at what point in the draft Mike will fall will depend if he can play left tackle. Most of the time, players like Mike get drafted in the second or third round but the need for "ready to play" offensive lineman is so great in the NFL that I would not be surprised at all if Mike is drafted in the first round by a playoff team needing good offensive linemen. If Mike proves that he can play the left tackle position, he could move up into the top fifteen in this draft, so keep track of Rob's value board for this kid. No matter where he's picked, Mike is ready to plug in to your offensive line and play at a high level right away. Mike has pro bowl potential at a few different offensive line positions, which, for me, makes him a player I believe smart teams will be dying to draft early. I call him Mike (Incognito) Johnson because right now he is playing his position at a very high level and nobody seems to notice.

This also brings up something I've been thinking about. For 1st round Guards, we're looking at Mike Iupati if Kubiak/Dennison like him for our team. I'd love that but I question how NFL ready he is... seems to be raw.

What about Charles Brown from USC? He's a LT but from what I've been reading, if he doesn't make it at LT, if he isn't quick enough in the pros, he could be a pro bowl calibre RT or LG. What do yall think about drafting guy like that in the 1st... probably try and trade down in the 20's a little way? Sounds to be really versatilem, could be our LG out of the gates and a great backup LT/RT if one of those guys gets injured. Thoughts?

steelbtexan
03-28-2010, 01:39 PM
Newhouse was a 4 yr starter at LT for TCU.

Surely he can play LG and is the better athlete of the 2.

Not saying that Johnson would be a bad pick though.

Man this draft is deep.

I like this line of thinking.

BTW The Texans interviewed Bruce Campbell at the combine. So they may be thinking the same thing you are.

Fix the OL and draft a RB would be drafting to fix what Kubes said was job one this offseaso. Improving the running game.

Good little article I just read about Newhouse. Says the Texans showed interest in him during the Combine. Smart player that's projected inside in the pros.

Any chance we may draft an offensive tackle and shift guys around on our offensive line? Duane Brown playing guard or Eric Winston moving to guard and the Texans drafting a right tackle?

Just wondering...

The Texans' pick is the only really important one here and it's on HouTex to make it. I don't want this one to be a group pick.

Shouldn't the rules of the draft apply to all equally though. SuperMario's pick was 19 hours ago. Like Kiwitexansfan mentioned Hou-Tex could have PM'd his list to SuperMario or Texans4Ever like all the rest of us.

I think the best picks for the Texans in order are:

Marshall Newhouse-OG, great fit for the ZBS
Mitch Petrus-OG, good fit for the ZBS
Mike Johnson-OG, good OG but I don't think he's quick enough for the ZBS.

That's a good idea in the 1st round but not the 3rd, all the good OT's are gone but the really good OG's are still on the board.

What I'm saying is... no.

For me, at least, this isn't an exercise where I'm trying to be totally "fair" or trying to minimize the time spent on it. The players the Texans get are the most important thing. The mock is important to me because I get a better feel for which players are going to be drafted and a feeling for where. But it's really all about finding out what players may be falling to the Texans.

So, to me, this isn't like a game where there are rules that must be followed. It's more like a casual intellectual exercise.

Then you don't get a realistic feel for the Texans draft if the rules don't apply equally to everyone. There are 31 other members here who'd like to make their picks but they can't because we might be waiting for days for Hou-Tex to make his. It's not fair to the other members making picks if this thing is weighted in favor of the Texans. The real draft has time limits and rules that apply to everyone. How long are you willing to wait til Hou-Tex makes his pick?

#1. This isnt a real draft. This is a Mock Draft.

#2. This is a Houston Texans forum. If that doesnt weigh in favor of the Texans, then I dont know what does.

#3. I am pretty sure he will be on tomorrow morning to make the pick. If that is not the case then I am fine with making a group pick.

Looks like Cleveland will still land Colt McCoy with their 2nd third round pick.

That would give them...

Earl Thomas
Patrick Robinson
Jahvid Best
Colt McCoy

That would be a solid draft by itself.

constructive criticism: next time there needs to be a few edits to make this run a little smoother.

1. Like in the real draft if you miss you pick, the next team goes ahead.

2. If you miss your pick by more than say 2 hours, then a consensus of say 4-6 GMs make the decision.

3. No special rules for the person running the Texans. We have rules that state 6 hours per pick to keep the flow going and keep people motivated to keep participating. It has now been over 22 hours. since the Texans have been on the clock. That is far too much time in my mind.

I really wanted JD Walton. The dude plays with a nasty streak and attitude.

We'll see what we've got to work with in the 3rd.

OK, there it is. Hou-Tex himself telling us who he wants. If you have to pick for him, use his pick at least.

Not really. But if there's a consensus that we should do it, I'll take part.

The problem with the Chris Cook pick is that we've already got Kyle Wilson in this mock. And then Glover and Brice from last year. And Jacques and Antwaun and Fred. I think Chris is a good pick at this spot but just not with what we've done before. I threw him in there because... he's up near the top of my board at this point and he has to be considered.

Yeah, but Cook is big enough to play S too.

Having a S that can cover the TE or slot without having to change personel is invaluable.

This is why I believe Thomas will be gone before 20.

I copied and pasted the following post #487 from page 25 when I commented on the great pick that Hou-Tex made on Ben Tate in the 2nd round. Hou-Tex response is the last sentence. I think he fully intended to take the best OG available in the 3rd round and the best one's we've mentioned are all still available. I think our vote comes down to 3 guys:

Marshall Newhouse
Mitch Petrus
Mike Johnson

I personally like Newhouse and he gets my vote since he's the best available for the ZBS, but I don't think we could go wrong with any of them.

Interior O-line in the 3rd to make holes for the new running game Mike Johnson, Marshall Newhouse, or Mitch Petrus would be good, you already know about J.D.Walton and Matt Tennant wouldn't be bad either though a little early for him.

This is an option I hadn't really been considering: switching an OT into OG for the ZBS. That does make a ton of sense.

I'd assume that you'd want a shorter OT with good athleticism. Capers makes sense.

How about Andrew Tyshovnytsky from Fordham? He put up some good numbers. I'm not saying with this pick, but later in the draft?

steelbtexan

I've never seen the guy from Fordham play. But I've read about him and he has great measurables.

If the Browns dont take Colt McCoy then they are crazy.


I see him as a good pick if a team can let him sit for at least a year, maybe 2, and let him learn and adjust to the pro system. If a team is looking for him to start right away then he's going to be a bust.

Thanks, man.

I was really torn on this pick. Petrus was my first choice, but as the picks went by, I started to get enamored of Reshad Jones (S) and the fact that McCluster is just sitting there... waiting... almost made me pick him.

But they've had injuries all along that line. Their LG is coming off of back surgery and may not be at full strength. So I think this is the best pick for them.

If Campbell and Petrus work out, they could end up with a dominant o-line.

2010 Packers:
1. Bruce Campbell, LT
2. Dominique Franks, CB
3. Mitch Petrus, OG

Sometimes people make bad decisions in life. Sometimes really make really bad decisions in life. Sometimes people make REALLY bad decisions in life.

The character of a man is what he does afterwards, how he atones for his mistakes, and he he refrained from the previous behavior. Now, when I name the following pick, I know some of yall will say "ew" , the guy is sick" or that he has character issues. Did he do something disgusting: yes, absolutely. However, lets also remember that their are NFL players that have done far worse.

That said, this prospect has first round talent but his indiscretions as a teenager has cost him a lot of $. The events in question happened 7 years ago and he has not had any problems since.

This may be a reach, but I do not believe he will be available later on. So, without further ado I present to you the Arizona Cardinals 3rd round selection: OT Tony Washington!!!

Sticking with the O-line, the Arizona Cardinals decide that its important to protect our QB. Matt Leinart may or may not be able to play. The way to find out is give him some protection and find out. With our first pick of the 3rd we took a 1st round talent OT and now we supplement with an excellent Center. This may be a little high, but he won't be there at our 4th.

The Cardinals select Center: Eric Olsen from the University of Notre Dame.

Fair enough. You must have seen something in him that I did not, and that is the beauty of the draft. I did the same think with Owusu-Ansah last round, so I am not one to argue I guess.

Part of the fun of the draft is that after a certain point, there is not a ton of consensus as to who is better than who. Nobody will hit on each pick, the more picks you get the more chances you have, but at the end of the game, there is a certain amount of guess work involved!

The defense has long been a staple of this franchise, and I would like to see that trend continue. Pat and Kyle Williams have been dominating interior lines for the last 6 years, but now Pat is getting old. Troup will be the 3rd DT in the rotation. He is in the mold of the Williams, big at 63 314 lbs, yet quick enough to apply pressure. By the time the 2011 season rolls around, Troup will be ready to start alongside Kyle Williams.

They've got some young aspiring guys but look for Thompson to push them and get some playing time. Syd'Quan looks to fit Indy's style of play and can contribute on special teams. Alualu and Syd'Quan will look to establish a Cal Bears alumni club in Indianapolis.

The Titans so far have:

1.) Dez Bryant, WR

Playmaking wide receiver to pair with Kenny Britt for Vince Young to throw to. Has all the physical tools to become a threat...if he can get his head in the game.


3.) Geno Atkins, DT

Undersized under tackle, not a mauler but a disruptive force who can shoot the gaps and contribute. Did not make the pick and do not agree with this pick since the Titans drafted Sen'Derrick Marks to play the role but you can't have enough DTs.


3.) Eric Norwood, OLB

Underrated prospect at OLB. Undersized (can't do anything about height) but plays with heart and is built. Can knock the crap outta anyone and has decent pass rush ability for a OLB in a 4-3 defense.

Undersized under tackle, not a mauler but a disruptive force who can shoot the gaps and contribute. Did not make the pick and do not agree with this pick since the Titans drafted Sen'Derrick Marks to play the role but you can't have enough DTs.


3.) Eric Norwood, OLB

Underrated prospect at OLB. Undersized (can't do anything about height) but plays with heart and is built. Can knock the crap outta anyone and has decent pass rush ability for a OLB in a 4-3 defense.

That's a good draft for them for sure. Norwood will be interesting at OLB in that 4-3 though. He can certainly rush the passer but we will see where he is at in coverage. He will be an excellent special teamer.

Ciron Black is a good pick. Probably can play RT or OG. They could use help on defense, maybe a linebacker perhaps? AJ Edds from Iowa, Justin Cole SJSU, Cameron Sheffield from Troy, and Rennie Curran from Georgia.

I'd vote for Rennie Curran from Georgia. Although undersized he had a productive career and played for three season. He had 298 total tackles, 24 TFLs, and 6.5 sacks.

With the first pick in the 4th round of the 2010 Texans Talk Mock Draft, the St. Louis Rams select...

Jermaine Cunningham, DE, Florida

http://www.gatorcountry.com/images/uploads/football/JCunningham_UK.jpg

Reasoning: The Rams need to get to the opposing teams QB better than they did last year. At this point in the draft, Cunningham is a good value and from a winning college program who can bring a good attitude to a young and rebuilding football team.

It wouldn't be a problem it's just that there OT they drafted sucks, Jason Smith was injured IIRC and Chris Long is still developing. As for Adam arriker, he is a DE and not a DT so the Rams should've kept him on the outside.

They do have a productive DE in James Hall who isn't used much for some reason (I bet the Lions wished they kept him)

Carroll/Gibs goes to the well of talent that he knows in McKnight. Personally I would've taken Hardesty but I'm trying to think like Carroll would. McKnight is a good choice in that he knows the system (obviously) is very fast and elusive. McKnight will be a stud in a 15/20 carry role. As part of a 2 RB system.

Seattle is also very happy with their mock draft.

When you get to the 4th round you look for value. You take players that have potential and you look for guys that may be able top provide adequate depth. If your 4th rounder is able to stick around and contribute in any way, you have done a good job.

In our case, we found a guy who we think is excellent depth now and can potentially start in the future. Some people have been down on him becuase his 40 was a little on the slow side, but what I am looking for is a football player. I am looking for a guy that gives his all on every play. He is a smart young guy who will use his brain to adjust to the offense. He is the kind of guy you want on your sideline and on your side.

So, without further ado, I present to you Buffalo's 4th round pick: Myron Rolle!

Reggie Nelson known as "The Eraser" is quickly letting the Jags fan know why. He is quickly being erased from their hearts and may soon be erased from the roster for his "bust-like symptoms".

With that said, the Jacksonville Jaguars select TJ Ward, Safety from Oregon. TJ is a safety that is just as punishing a hitter as Taylor Mays but a better tackler and MUCH better in pass coverage.

I just want to put it out there now that I will not be making any additional Buffalo Bills picks. I signed up for a 4 round draft and have honored my commitment. If this mock continues forward, I will no longer participate due to timing issues coming up.

Since I still have the Arizona Cardinals in the 4th, I will make their pick. After that pick, I will no longer make picks for them after the 4th.

I say this now in order to give a heads up so that someone else can take over at this point with plenty of notice.

http://www.northbynorthwestern.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/outback_first.jpg

Reasoning: In this draft and offseason, the Bears are retooling their defense to get it back to where it once was. With Vasher gone and incumbent Corey Graham not a dependable corner, the Bears take the CB they like best in a spot of fairly good value. Also, McFadden has a personal workout scheduled for the Bears on April 7th, so it seems they like the way he plays and think he could fit into their defense.

Right now, my board at WR goes like this:

Mike Williams
Dezmon Briscoe
Jacoby Ford
Carlton Mitchell
--------------------------- DRAFT POINT
Taylor Price
Danario Alexander
Eric Decker

The guys above the "draft point" are guys I expected to be gone by now. So for me, any of those guys are probably a good choice.

Jacoby Ford is 5' 9" and I don't think the Panthers want 2 smurfs on the field. So Ford is out.

Now, ignoring Steve Smith for a moment, the Panthers are a running team. I think they'd be happy to get a bigger WR who can also (possibly) block with some training. Of these guys, Calton Mitchell and Danario Alexander are the biggest two. Now, I know that big <> ability to block but for right now, I'm going to make that assumption.

Bottom line: Someone suggested Mitchell as a possibility. I see him as a fit. So I agree even though there are other WRs that could be just as good.

Wolf you got a steal here. Calloway has played everywhere but C on the Hawkeyes OL. He's a big strong physical OL. Who despite running a slow 40 time at the combine has very good short area quickness and functional strength. He played in a ZBS system. Calloway looked very good in the all-star practices and game.

Teams that need OL to play quickly cant go wrong selecting a Ferentz coached OL.

Steal.

Moreno and Hardesty provide a great1-2 punch for the Bronco running game.

Great pick, Hardesty would be the no.1 RB on my board if not for his injury history.

I agree that he is a good value pick, and fills a huge need with all the running backs they have been purging.

The Pittsburgh Steelers Select: Mike Neal, DL, Purdue

Even with Ziggy Hood on the roster the stillers need more big men to back up or replace Casey Hampton (32) and Aaron Smith (34). One of the strongest players in the draft, can take on and split double teams. Could project at DE or NT in a 3-4 defense.

With the 115th pick in the NFL mock draft Wolf 6151 via PM selects Kyle Calloway OT Iowa.

Wolf you got a steal here. Calloway has played everywhere but C on the Hawkeyes OL. He's a big strong physical OL. Who despite running a slow 40 time at the combine has very good short area quickness and functional strength. He played in a ZBS system. Calloway looked very good in the all-star practices and game.

Thanks Steelbtexan, I was away for a while. The Giants need RT and Calloway's lack of elite speed shouldn't be a big deal on the right side. Also Iowa O-linemen are always good prospects. Through 4 rounds the Giants have:

Brian Price-DT
Brandon Spikes-MLB
J.D. Walton-C
Kyle Calloway-OT

The Atlanta Falcons are happy to have a player they covet and have had at the top of the board for the last round and a half fall to them here in the 4th.

The Falcons select Trevard Lindley, CB, Kentucky.

http://behindtheboxscore.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/trevard-lindley.jpg

Graded as a 2nd rounder following the 2009 season, Lindley struggled with a high ankle sprain through 2010 to see his stock slip. While lacking prototypical speed and strength, he does possess good instincts and an ability to read the game.

He has shown an above average ability to break passes up and became known for making big plays at big moments. If his hands were a little better he would be a real ball hawk. Even with his poor hands he is the all time leader in interceptions at Kentucky.

With the Falcons participation in this draft complete, I am pleased with what we were able to do with the team.

1. Sergio Kindle, OLB/DE, Texas
3a. Marshall Newhouse, OL, TCU
3b. Arthur Jones, DT, Syracuse
4. Trevard Lindley, CB, Kentucky

I think all 4 players have a chance to contribute early in their careers and they are all players that mesh need and bpa requirements.

Not a bad draft, if you can get Kindle to play OLB or DE with his hand down you got yourself a solid football player. Everyone else hits a position of need so good job :bravo:

There is a certain Georgia DT left aside from Atkins and Owens that would be nice to have. A Mr. Kad Weston, 6'5" 325-lbs defensive tackle who played well for the Bulldogs last season.

A pretty good value FS still on the Board.

Kam Chancellor- VT

I would punch myself in the face if the Texans picked Weston here. Terrible pick (In my opinion), a 7th rounder at best. Owens is still around, he is perfect for the Texans D.

Yes Owens would be a good fit as would D'Anthony Smith- Louisiana Tech

Well ... right now I might go Anthony Dixon for a power back . Why ... they have Tate , iffy Slaton , and 2 UDFA .

I think that we would need to address the holes still at FS and DT before we take another RB. I would nominate either D'Anthony Smith or Chancellor
