Can we have a mod open a Thread which will only be used to display all picks? This would be updated with every pick and would allow us to easily and quickly see who is taken without having to wade through multiple pages. Remember, lets make it as easy as possible to entice people to continue playing.

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

Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_M7sEz3FCx9c/Sh9Z1p8vIiI/AAAAAAAAAD8/NczPl5_i81s/s320/Gerald+McCoy.jpg

Explanation: It was between McCoy or Bradford for me. Learning from our own experience about taking a big name QB over a big name defensive player, I go with who I believe to be the best player in the draft. After watching him dominate A&M and the Big XII for the past couple of years, I've seen first hand what this man is capable of doing. Coupled with Chris Long for years to come, McCoy gives defensive specialist Spagnuoulo and the Rams one of the most talented young defensive lines to mold much like he did the Giants for the next six to ten years.

The Detroit Lions are on the clock.

Texan4Ever
03-14-2010, 10:01 PM
pbat488, I was suprised, I thought you might go with a quarterback but good pick.

I've read many reports that suggest that Ndamukong Suh has a high floor in terms of potential and ability but McCoy has a high ceiling. With young guys like Chris Long along with Little, Carriker, and now McCoy, this can become a dominat d-line in the comming years.

Kaiser Toro
03-14-2010, 10:05 PM
With the second pick of the 2010 Texans Talk Mock Draft, the Detroit Lions select...

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska

http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/multimedia/photo_gallery/0912/all-decade.cfb.memorable.performances.2000s/images/ndamukong-suh.jpg

Explanation: The Lions have many needs and yes, the Lions drafted Sammie Lee Hill last year and he performed, and have picked up Corey Williams and Vanden Bosch this off season to solidify the DL. With that being known, how do you still pass on Suh, on the surface? With the Lions being so vested, as of late, in first round contracts on the offensive side of the ball, it is time to get some balance while bringing a player on that should automatically make the Lions' DL one of the most formidable in the league. Schwartz will be licking his chops next year.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on the clock.

steelbtexan
03-14-2010, 10:15 PM
With the 3rd selection in the NFL mock draft the Tampa Bay Bucs select Eric Berry-University of Tennessee

I couldn't pass on the best S prospect since Sean Taylor. He should be a multiple time pro-bowl player.

The Washington Redskins are on the clock.

steelbtexan

If the draft fell this way and I were the Bucs I would star shopping this pick between the Redskins,Seattle, and the Bills for the chance to draft Bradford.

This would be the optimal situation for the rebuilding Bucs to add multiple picks and really fill some of the many hole on that team.

Personally, I would've drafted an offensive tackle or traded down in a real situation. Jeff Backus will have to deal with the Vikings Ray Edwards and now Julius Peppers and unless he improves the only thing Matt Stafford will be seeing is the turf.

Okung was also considered, but in my opinion Stafford and Okung are more questionable performers than Suh from a scalability standpoint. Sure you can talk the defensive side of the ball being difficult for their NFC North opponents, but what about those offenses as well? There are more rounds and the focus will turn to needs, but not when the best player is available.

Sounds reasonable to me.

I heard the Lions are doing their due dilligence on Okung,Suh and McCoy. I'm suprised that Bradford wasn't taken. I expected to draft either McCoy or Suh. But Berry is a wonderful consilation prize.

Texan4Ever
03-14-2010, 10:42 PM
It may be wise to go with talent (BPA) rather then glaring need. Ndamukong Suh is a special player and if he can translate his game from college to the pros, he will be to the Lions what Bruce Smith was to the Bills and Derrick Thomas was to the Chiefs in terms of being a defensive standout.

Sorry posting this on my iPhone from the hospital - I'll dress it up tmrw From an actual computer.

With the fourth overall selection, the Washington redskins select Russel okung, Offensive tackle, Oklahoma state.

Reasoning: the redskins need to protect their Qb, and drafting Bradford/Clausen won't improve them as much as a franchise tackle.

Kansas City selects Rolando McClain LB Alabama
The Cheifs need a big, physical persence inside to lead their new 4-3 defense.
McClain brings the full package to the field. He could do for the Chiefs what Willis did for the 49'ers.

With the 6th pick in the NFL mmok draft the Seattle Seahawks select Sam Bradford QB Oklahoma.

Seahawks get their franchise QB of the future. Their future just got alot brighter with this pick.

Bradford is a steal at this point in the draft. He can learn for a year under Hasselbeck. Bradford is a perfect fit for the WC offense. IMHO

Not sold on McClain at #5.

That is awfully high for a LB.

He better be better than Willis to justify that pick.

And they run a 3-4 not a 4-3.

He also has Crohn's disease which is very debilitating, which would make him a liability with that high a draft pick.

From WalterFootball.com

Surprised to see Rolando McClain this low? Some mocks have McClain as high as No. 5, which I think is crazy. No inside linebacker has gone higher than No. 9 (Brian Urlacher) in the past 15 years.

So who should the Browns take?

They could probably get a CB early in round 2. I would think Dez Bryant, even though they took 2 in round 2 last year, or CJ Spiller (probably a little early)

On defense they could address the defense with a DE like Pierre-Paul or Morgan.

HOU-TEX
03-15-2010, 11:54 AM
Maybe you are right, but I thought he was drafted as an outside linebacker.

I think he was initially. Barnett was the MLB and Hawk moved inside when Barnett went down in 08 with an injury. Hawk stayed inside after transitioning to the 3-4 from the 4-3. He appeared to have issues with the transition, falling out of favor towards the end of the season.

The Browns are screwed if the draft falls this way. They need a QB but the dawg pound wont except another ND QB as their QB of the future.

I would take BPA at this spot and that comes down to Spiller,Thomas and Haden.

My pick would be Thomas because he's the safest pick of tose 3. But that could be me just being a UT homer.

kiwitexansfan
03-15-2010, 12:41 PM
Browns fans would seem to think that Haden is there guy so they might be happy if it played out this way.

The thought seems to be that Holmgren prefers QB in mid-round rather than at the top.

I'm going to support the Rolando McClain pick and here's why:

Scott Pioli suprised everyone by taking Tyson Jackson (a 3-4 DE) with the #3 pick and if he takes McClain this year then he has two solid players for his 3-4defense.

Rolando McClain is the safest pick in the draft and IMO he is the most NFL-ready player. He is smart, tough-as-nails, and excells at tackling, he would make a good candidate as captain of the defense and I see him as the second coming of Derrick Thomas, he's that good...or at least on tape.

If Bradford is still available @ 2 or 3, I would not be surprised to see a trade up. Browns have 13 picks as it stands now.

After trading Wimbley to the Raiders, Rush OLB is a big need. Jason Pierre-Paul may be the best option. Morgan may fit the bill also.

I do not think Dez Bryant would be in the mix here.

I have to dissagree with you sir. I just don't think that Morgan/Pierre-Paul are built for 3-4 schemes. A 270-lbs OLB, I just don't see it.

The Browns could use some safety/and or cornerback help and an explosive running back like CJ Spiller could also help. Wide receiver is also a need IMO.

Some guys who wanted to have teams were wondering why they didn't have picks. djohn2oo8 got assigned the Panthers who don't have a 1st round pick. Honoring Earl got the Cowboys and the Bears, who don't have a pick in the first couple of rounds, fell to pbat who luckily also drew the Rams so he's not sad about the Bears thing.

Albert played OG in college but was a LT for the Chiefs. Many people have suggested drafting an OT and sliding him to OG and moving Brain Waters to C to secure the left side of the o-line.

Someone MAY take a flyer (no pun intended) on him late. He may be fast but remember, he's a track star. Put on football cleats, pads, a helmet, etc. and I doubt he's that much faster than most NFL athletes to be honest. Then add to that fact that 1 hit from a guy like Bernard Pollard and the guy's career is probably over. Waste of a roster spot if you ask me.

The Buffalo Bills are very pleased with the way this draft has turned out. While the Buffalo Bills were not a great football team, we have several pieces to build around. Since we have decided to switch to a 3-4 defense, we have recognized that the most important defensive position is the NT. Fortunately for us, the best NT in the draft is also one of the BPA at this spot.

The Buffalo Bills are proud to select Dan Williams, NT from the University of Tennessee.

With the 10th selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Jason Pierre-Paul, Defensive End from the University of South Florida.

Reasoning: The Jags were among the worst at pressuring the opposing QB last season. Playing in the AFC South with elite QB's like Peyton Manning and Matt Schaub, the Jags have to be able to pressure with the front four. Young Draft Picks, Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves, have not had the early success registering only 8 combined sacks between the two of them over 2 full seasons. The Jags picked up the veteran, an former pro-bowler, Aaron Kampman in FA this year, but he's coming off season ending knee surgery and should not be viewed as the last piece to the pass rushing puzzle. Pierre-Paul, although raw, is an explosive pass rusher and incredible athlete. At 6'5, 270lbs with 4.6 speed, he is believed to be the elite pass rusher in this draft and that's exactly what Jacksonville needs. Carlos Dunlap is a possibility, although some may view him as a reach, but in the end the Jags select the South Florida native. Ideally, the Jags would like to trade down and pick up a 2nd round pick (which they lack) and come out of the first 2 rounds with a pass rushing DE and Tim Tebow... heck, why not convert Tebow to DE from the get-go?

With the 11th pick in the 2010 NFL draft, the Denver Broncos select Joe Haden, CB, Florida.

http://www.mockmydraft.com/images/joe_haden.jpg

Haden's subpar 40 time at the combine cost him a few million dollars, and is ultimatly what allowed the Broncos to even have a shot at him @ 11. Haden can play against the pass and the run, and should prove that he is the best CB to come out of this draft.

Denver still needed a boost in the youth department at cornerback with Champ Bailey (32) Ty Law (36) Andre Goodman (31) all getting long in the tooth. Haden can pair up with Alphonso Smith in the future to give Denver a nice CB combo for the long haul.

At this point Brandon Marshall is still on the team effectively ruling out Dez Bryant. Who knows if they will patch things up for one more year.

With Rolando McClain, and Dan Williams already gone, I had to look elsewhere.

I considered Upati and Pouncey, but decided this was a bit high for an interior o-lineman. I also considerd Taylor Mays, but passed due to his questionable ball skills.

My personal choice would've been Sergio Kindle.

It's funny you just posted your pick when I'd just read this:

According to NFL Network's Mike Mayock, "just about everyone in attendance" at Georgia Tech's Pro Day believed Derrick Morgan will be a 4-3 defensive end in the NFL -- not a 3-4 outside linebacker.

Morgan struggled badly when asked to drop and change direction at the Combine. He was a bit better at Monday's Pro Day, but at 6'3/266 Morgan's best fit appears to be as a base, 4-3 right or left defensive end. Mayock expects Morgan to be drafted somewhere in the top 10-20, though it appears we can cross most 3-4 clubs off the list of potential landing spots.

It's a wise move to get a quarterback like Sam Bradford and then an offensive tackle to protect his blind side, but from the same program is hard to do so you did that very well.

For the rest of the draft, I would try and get a RB and a OG and then go defense throughout with maybe another WR in the mix. Good job thus far!

Brilliant, you picked another prototypical bust to add to the Oakland QB collection!!

Well, Al Davis is an unconventional owner. We never know quite what he's thinking only that it isn't what everyone else is.

JaMarcus is a huge bust because he lacks what the great QBs have to have--leadership and the drive to be the best.

Jimmy Clausen reminds me a bit of a former Raiders QB--Daryle Lamonica.

Lamonica was a HS star in CA that went to Notre Dame, as is Jimmy Clausen. He became the "Mad Bomber" for Al and won 2 MVPs. They're also roughly the same size.

376

377

So with JR not showing up for off-season work-outs and weird Al wanting to make a splash before he meets his maker (Lucifer), I went w/ the SoCal boy who wants to return to his roots.

Just in time, so no reason for an apology.

Brian Price would have been my pick, I think it's decent value at a high need position.

Kaiser Toro
03-17-2010, 07:24 AM
Why do you say that?

He has some talent to perhaps start in this league for a couple of years, but his mouth of the south act will not go far fast if he chooses not to put in the ST team work at full speed in the early years. As a Junior I was very unimpressed with his leadership skills when Mizzou was falling fast last year.

Of course he would show well at the combine, and of course he should be in the discussion for the NYG pick with McClain gone in OUR mock draft, but him in NYC, under Coughlin? I don't think so.

Kaiser Toro

I apologize for the delay, when I left home this morning there were 4 picks before mine so I didn't think it would get to me so quickly. I took the day off from work to spend some time with my daughter since she's out of school for spring break. I took my 12 yr. old daughter to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and we've been there for the last 13 hours. We rode most all of the rides, ate most all of the food, went to most every exhibit, display, and booth in the place and had a great time together just father an daughter. Some kid's 250 lbs. show pig stepped on my foot, I was wearing flip flops at the time. Oh my aching feet!!!

The N.Y. Giants select Brian Price-DT from UCLA. He was my 3rd selection but since Rolando McClain and Dan Williams are already off the board I'll take the best DT available and fill their biggest need.

That time with your kid is a pretty good reason to be late, glad you had a good day.

Good pick BTW

Tack suggestions:

Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State. Most talented player left. But a bit immature.

Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan. Some might see him as a 3-4 OLB, but he is relentless and has a non-stop motor.

Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida. Some off the field issues, but is a physical specimen, and could be really good. DE is a big need for the Titans with KVB gone.

lol so true. But you have to think of it this way. We are picking players based on a Houston Texans point of view. Earl Thomas, Dan Williams, Kyle Wilson, and a few other fan favorites are going to go higher to teams that may or may not need that player because we are still using our Houston Texans glasses.

But even if the draft fell perfectly, you are going to get blasted for your pick by a couple of posters. It comes with the teritory.

Good luck!!! :evil:

Ole Miss Texan
03-17-2010, 10:32 AM
As to their pick? RB CJ Spiller - just kidding.

They have needs just about everywhere on defense. I could see them going for DE Brandon Graham or CB Kyle Wilson. They're in the same position as Jacksonville: They have to stop Manning and Schaub each twice a year. To do so, you need a great pass rush or secondary or both.

Blake

Just throwing out ideas, but we really should consider dropping the clock down from 12 hours. That might promote people to email their top 3 players list when their pick is coming up in case they are not around.

If we're going to change the times, then we need to take into consideration WHEN the pick time started AND whether guys are morning/day/evening/night posters, I guess. I mean, if we shorten it to 4 hours and the pick comes up at midnight and the guy normally posts during the day... that's not really fair. Unless we all post a list of who we're considering with our picks so that when our picks come up, people can make our picks for us...? Maybe? Maybe the next 5-6 posters can post their lists now? They only have to have a list that's as long as how far out they are. For example, the Niners would need to give us 2 choices (because they're 2 picks back), the Steelers would need 3 choices, the Falcons 4, etc.

Blake
03-17-2010, 11:07 AM
How about 6 hours.

If you are coming up in 4 picks you need to PM your top 4 choices to Texan4ever.

That covers someone up to 24 hours. And if 3 picks go rapid fire before you then you still have someone who can proxy pick for you. Not like that is likely though.

I think its just common sense that if you only get on for 20 minutes a day that you need to PM your big board to Texan4ever.

Eh, I wouldn't say i was wearing homer colored glasses when i took Thomas @ 7. He has the ability to play Corner and FS. With Hayden falling, and not being able to use his Pro Day to see if he really runs that slow, I had to go with the #2 rated DB. That happened to be Thomas. I could of gone with a different position, but i felt that I had to get the BPA in a position of dire need (everything's a need on the Browns.) I didn't go QB because of Ol' Jake..

I think 12 hours works just fine. I'm not part of the picking, but it seems that everybody has been within the set rules so far. Some picks are a a bit strange, but when is the last time you have seen a real draft without a strange pick? If it was the case that at the real NFL draft every team picked who we think they should, then why would we even be trying to have fun making mock drafts?

TexCanada
03-17-2010, 11:38 AM
So the Texans are 5 picks away and Earl Thomas, Brian Price and Dan Williams have all been selected. Players left that we could still be targeting are Kyle Wilson, Iupati, CJ Spiller, Ryan Mathews and possibly Dez Bryant if he is still there. Pouncey and Best should also be available but I think they are a bit more of a stretch.

I think board may go like this at this point.
Tacks - Graham

This could leave us to choose between the #1 RB, #1 WR, #2 CB. Not bad.

They could use some defensive help as well and pickup a running back in the second round. CB is a need as Walt Harris getting old and it wouldn't hurt to add a young corner or a safety.

Spiller would also help as a home run threat in their back field.

Dez is a good player. But not a big need for the Titans who just resigned their pass catching TE Bo Scaife. First round draft pick, Kenny Britt, Lavelle Hawkins, Justin Gage, and Free Agent acquisition from last season Nate Washington (six-year, $27 million deal)

I agree they should have gone with a DE. And there were some good ones still on the board with Graham, Dunlap, Odrick and Griffen.

I was reading a mock today that had Tebow going at this spot.

The theory being that Singletary would fall for Tebow's character (read Hyper-religiousity) and would snap him up to be the leader of his team.

Yea, even if VY doesn't work out you are putting your next QB in a good situation with that supporting cast. Bryant, Britt, Johnson.

The Steelers could use a running back like CJ Spiller to complement Rashard Mendenhall or go with a strong safety like Taylor Mays to play alongside Troy Polamalu and support the run.

I think Spiller makes the most sense as most offensive linemen that are decent are all taken.

With the 18th pick, the Pittsburgh Steelers Select Maurkice Pouncey, Center/Guard, Florida

http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2009/0401/ncf_i_pouncey_200.jpg

I was going to take Mike Upati, but Kaiser Toro beat me to him. The Steelers need interior line help bad. At over 6'4" and 305 pounds, the versatile Pouncey can step in day 1 at center or guard and protect their franchise QB, while opening lanes for Rashard Mendenhall. The Steelers organization wants to get back to the days of Dermontii Dawson, and Alan Faneca, and impose their will running the football. "The Steelers were tied-for-21st in the NFL in red zone efficiency, and the inability to score touchdowns at a higher rate was costly, especially if that unit is supposed to be the strength of the team."

I considered CJ Spiller, but ultimately decided that the Steelers already have an every down back scratching CJ off the list. I also considered Taylor Mays, but with Troy Polomalu and Ryan Clark coming back, decided to get the oline back on track.

Some will feel this is high for Pouncey, but with the inability to trade back, I had to get the player I was targeting.

Super Mario, that's a solid pick. I forgot that Maurkice Pouncey was still on the board. Given that he can play OG/OC, Pouncey fits the mold of a Steeler lineman.

:bravo:

I felt that one coming after Iupati was picked. Good selection. It's just weird to see two interior linemen picked in the top 20.

I think that your right, Pouncey is a stretch here but he fits the Steelers mould.

Agreed. It was hard to do since Spiller was still on the board. The last Center's I remember going high were last year Alex Mack @ 21 and Eric Wood @ 28. Then before that Chris Spencer @ 26 in 2005.

So would you think the Falcons still go after DB right here after they signed dumbta?

I'd say they go OLB Weatherspoon, or one of the DEs

Someone did their homework on team needs and player valuation. Very good pick. Some of these other picks are very questionable. Dealing with questionable picks is a part of the draft though when someone ahead of you takes your player, you adapt and move to another position of need. Just like the real draft.

This GM draft gives me new found respect for what Smith/Kubiak go through on draft day. Making the big decisions is tough and adapting when your player is gone is tough as well.

Weatherspoon is a popular choice in Falconsville.

They seem to think Robinson solves there DB issues so I don't think they go there.

I'll give you my pick in a bit.

With everyone in here lurking around, I have a feeling picks are about to start rolling. Let's hope the Eagles can find a playmaker. Everyone took my interior lineman!

Just quietly its a crime that Spiller is still on the board. I am so tempted to just snatch him up for the Falcons as BPA and terrify oppositions with the Turner/Spiller combo.
