1) Jerel Worthy, DL

I am officially on the Worthy train. This guy is a beast. Big, Nasty, explosive, highmotor, talented...He would add a lot to our defense and would atleast be in a heavy rotation with Cody and eventually take over as the full time starter. I thnk whoever gets this guy is going to get a really good player.

I love the attitude and explosiveness and the big nastiness he brings to the position. WOuld be an AWESOME pick up for us.

2) Mitchell Swartz, OT

Would come in and compete with Butler for the starting position. At the very least I think he would be the team's swing tackle winning that Job over Derek Newton (even though I'd like to keep Newton around too). I've read that the team has shown interest in him, so hopefully they feel like I do about him. I think, depending on how things shake out he could even play some guard.

3)Tommy Streeter, WR

Big talented guy that I think would be good value here. I think this guy is going to be a good player in the NFL if he has a good QB and some good coaching. He has all of the tools and he's already pretty good at finding space underneath while at the same time having the ability to take the top of the defense and make tough catches in traffic.

I really like 1-4, though I'd prefer Brandon Thompson to Worthy it's very close and have no problem with Worthy. I'm not familiar with 5 & 7 at all and I think we can get #6 as an UDFA since he's so one dimensional. I think we'd have to get lucky for Blake to be there in the 4th. Very good mock, if it fell this way I'd be happy.

4) Phillip Blake, C

Yeah...I know a lot of people don't think he will be available here, but I think it's a good possibility. If he is available here, it would be an excellent pick up for us because I think he'd fit well in this system. With or without Meyers I'd pick him up here.

5) Brandon Lindsey, OLB

Talented player, but to me he looks a little sloppy at times. I think he's come in a push Braman and Nading for the back-up positions. I wish we could have retained Mario, but even without him I like Nading and Braman as the primary back-ups. I think Nading is better than he gets credit for, and I think if Braman can get stronger he can be a really good rotational player as well.

http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/slides/photos/001/282/962/brandon-lindsey_display_image.jpg?1316112809

6) Chad Diehl, FB

With Vickers gone Diehl would be a great pick-up. He might even be a better blocker than Vickers was. He is a true full-back and would compete with Casey for the starting Job. I'd like to see Casey get the second TE role if Dreesen leaves and I think Diehl would be able to ease the burden on Casey. Between OD, Grahm, Casey, and Dield I'd be very good with the TE and FB positions.

http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/clem/sports/m-footbl/auto_action/6888345.jpeg

7) Travis Benjamin, WR

Very fast guy and actually a pretty good receiver. I'm picking him here primarily as a returner, but I think that he is more polished as a position player than Trindon Holiday. Trindon would compete with Benjamin to make the roster as the teams primary returner.

Philip Blake stood out for me at the combine: really looked the part, not "pregnant" like that pic. I don't see him dropping to the end of the 4th.

JL is best suited as a 4-3 DT. Would target Fletcher Cox, Michael Brockers, Kendall Reyes in that order. Of course Kendall Wright still trumps all!!!!!!

Mitchell Swartz, is a solid pick. Texans must address OT need via draft early.

I guess I'm the only one not on Streeter Bandwagon? Too undisciplined & raw in his game just like Jacoby when he came out. I would rather opt for a different WR here with sound fundamentals, like a Kevin Walters/Jordy Nelson clone.

Phillip Blake could be taken as high as the second round, just because he plays Center doesn't make him last until end of the 4th rd. Late third, if you really, really want him.

Lindsey seems like decent value, Texans said they always need pass rushers.

Like Chad Diehl pick. Texans need that lead blocker for the run game, cuts down wear & tear on their rb's too.

I want Texans to draft a kicker in the 7th. All mocks from here on to get the BL seal of approval must bear this in mind.

Bullock will be drafted, and there are 25 other teams ahead of us in the 7th. I don't like our odds there. If we really want Randy, let's draft him in the 6th. Otherwise, we pick up an UDFA or three and have a kicking competition.

New Mock:

I'm going to trade all the way out of the first round to the top middle of the second (maybe Wright or Stephen Hill fall to us and someone wants to trade up and pick them)

I'll pick up a 2nd, 3rd, and a 5th

2) Alshon Jeffrey, WR


I really like Alshon as a prospect. I don't kno if he will last to this position, but if he does I'd take him here in a heartbeat. If he is not here there are quite a few other prospects that are attractive in this range. He has super star potential. The guy is just a beast.

2) Shea McClellin, OLB


I watched some more of this guy and read some more scouting reports. I have said that he wasn't my favorite OLB prospect, and he's still not....BUT I like him more than I previously did and I agree with something I read on the boards by another poster (can't remember who said it)...He'd be a perfect fit with this group of guys.


3) Mike Martin, NT

I really like how this guy plays in the trenches. Add his game film to his measureables and I thnk he'd be a steal right here. He wouldn't need to be a star, but I think he could come in and make some plays for us and hold down the middle. I think he's versatile enough to hold the point, track down runs and penetrate in the passing game.

3) James Brown, OG

I admit that I don't know a lot about him other than what I've read. Fairly raw, but a really good athlete. Maybe he can be a future starter for us, maybe he can push Caldwell and make him better this coming season. Either way he seems like he'd benefit this football team.

4) Nate Potter, OT

More O-line depth. Again, I don't know if Potter lasts this long but if he does I think he'd be a good fit for what we want out of our O-line. Big tall rangy kid with good athleticism.

4) Chris Rainey, RB, WR, ST

I like his versatility. I think he could do what Casey does except as a 3rd RB/WR rather than FB/TE...Plus he has returner skills. If Jacoby makes it to the regular season he needs to be off punt return duties.


5) Janzen Jackson, S

I like this guys game. Some character concerns and less than impressive measureables at workouts is why he falls. I think he's a better player than Shilo Keo and I'd like them to compete for a roster spot.


5) Asa Jackson, CB

I like Asa Jackson as a CB actually, but he also has return skills. I think he's a better prospect than Sherrick is. And he'd also add more speed to the DB's. He's a tough kid, not afraid of contact and has pretty good ball skills. He will push the back end of CB roster.


6) Randy Bullock, K

We need a kicker and he's a pretty good one.

7) Chad Diehl, FB

I think this guy would be a valuable asset to our team. He is a true punisher and a true bruiser, but he's still athletic enough. I really like atching this guy play as he seems to be the type of player that enjoys a good old collision headache. My type of guy.



I didn't draft and ILB. I know that is a must get spot for a lot of people, but I figure we can re-sign Dobbins for cheap. Sharpton should be ready for the season, and I actually like Mister Alexander a lot. I look for Mister Alexaner to eventually get regular playing time. But basically, for a position that won't see a whole lot of tick, I like what we have/the possibility of filling that role with bargain FA's...

MSR!

I like Janzen Jackson a lot! Unlike Bruce Irvin I could see the Texans taking him because I think Jackson's character issues are behind him...and man, what an athlete!

If we drafted him over my favorite, Tremain Thomas, I would not be sad...but why not draft them both? In fact, Jackson is just a CB waiting to happen, and I could forego Minnifield over him. Let him sit a year, have him return some kicks. The McManis days are done.

No particular complaints. Except my ongoing anti-Mike Martin-ness...

Actually, I think you can do better than James Brown but personal preferences aside, I could Diehl with this pretty well.

3) Brian Quick

4) Tommy Streeter

This is the part of your mock I don't get. These picks seem to be redundant. Two big, raw receivers that don't compliment each other. As TimeKiller suggests, dropping one and going o-line would make more sense. I prefer Quick, who seems to be the stronger athlete. Though Streeter has the deep speed the Texans say they are looking for.

On the other hand, I really like the Rainey pick. Can play in the slot, a 3rd down RB, and a returner. Very versatile with big play potential in the mid round area. I just wonder if Kubiak will go for another Holliday type player (though I think Rainey is the superior football player).

TimeKiller

I think they will. Someone to fill multiple voids, be an x-factor. Hard to complain about Rainey's ability but there are other choices too, Keyshawn Martin could be a huge special teams playmaker/slot option. AJ Jenkins has some legit speed, Chris Givens as well. Don't leave out Kendall Wright. Can't remember his name, like Owusu or something from Stanford has track speed (I think he was the fastest at the combine). I wouldn't doubt it or be surprised by it one single bit. The offense needs a lift, an infusion of speed for sure. For all anyone wants to say about Jacoby's speed it MIGHT have been on display twice last year. I know they won't cut him until they have a legit option behind him but it seriously still bugs the F outta me he even got to fly home with the team from Baltimore.

That's a fair point.

My thinking though is to take two guys and hopefully one pans out. I like both of them, and I think they could help the team in different ways. Streeter is a guy that can take the top off of the defense and make the tough long catches, but he's also pretty good in the red zone and finding open holes underneath zone coverage. Big body, good athlete.

I like quick simply because, like you said, he's more strongly built and could probably do more to help from day 1.

But you are right in that they don't compliment each other and it's not likely that the Texans will take two receivers like that if they are planning on having Jacoby on the team next season.

I think that these picks along with Rainey would maybe make Jacoby dispensable depending on how things shook out during camp and pre-season. And I'm not a Jacoby basher, but I'm just unsure about him and his future here.




On the other hand, I really like the Rainey pick. Can play in the slot, a 3rd down RB, and a returner. Very versatile with big play potential in the mid round area. I just wonder if Kubiak will go for another Holliday type player (though I think Rainey is the superior football player).

Yeah, I really like Rainey. He was productive in college as well. I think he could come in and play in spots and immediately be a boost to special teams.

I'm going to trade out of the 2nd round for a 3rd and 4th.

1) Jerel Worthy

I really like Worthy and think he would be special in this defense. It would also allow Mitchell to play at the DE position some and give us more flexibility on the D-line. Worthy is a beast of a penetrator and with him, Watts and

He didn't do himself any favors with a mediocre performance at a Combine filled with talented defensive tackles.

But in games, where it counts, Worthy is the definition of the word load. He demands immediate and constant attention by blockers or he can ruin an offense, and pretty much did exactly that as he earned All-American honors last season.

Worthy anchored a Spartans defense that led the Big Ten in rushing defense (100.5 yards per game), total defense (277.4 ypg) and sacks (45). Worthy explodes off the line at the snap and quickly uses his strong hands and unusual overall power to maintain an advantage. Little wonder he had at least one tackle for a loss in nine of 14 games last season.

He said his decision to enter the draft as an underclassman was partly because his father suffered a stroke in 2010 and he wants to offer financial support for the family.

3) Bruce Irvin

Character issues. Red Flags. Idiotic Behavior.

Still, I just can't pass him up. The Texans probably will and maybe should, but I think if you add him to the rotation with Reed And Barwin you are set at OLB for a few years at least. Dude is extremely explosive off the edge.

Read and react: Has natural instincts for defense despite his lack of experience, though he is obviously still learning. Finds the ball regularly and has the change of direction ability to get to it.

Run defense: Gives some effort to chase down running backs. Miscast as a hand-down player and played mostly in passing situations, but has some fair strength for his size and does not break down easily against the run. At linebacker, he should have no problems getting off tight end blocks to contain against the run.

Pass defense: Limited experience dropping into coverage, as he was primarily used as a pass rush specialist. Has change-of-direction skills and hustle to track down ball carriers in the open field, but will need to learn how to handle coverage responsibilities.

Tackling: Strong wrap tackler who can dislodge the ball with power and goes for the strip if his target is holding the ball low or loose. Brings down quarterbacks much bigger than he is. Very good motor and regularly chases down plays from behind. Used on special-teams coverage units because of his tenacity and speed.

Pass Rush/Blitz: Best attribute. Extreme quickness off the edge, has flexibility to turn the corner. Shows toughness to get under the pads of tackles to bull them, club them upfield to get the inside lane, or fight through blocks for secondary rush when passer steps up. Keeps feet moving after initial contact. Jumps inside as a counter to typical rush, but needs to show a larger variety of moves. Gets pressures on inside stunts and was too explosive for college guards to handle.

Intangibles: Tough player who gets up from being planted and comes hard on the next play. Comes from rough background and almost threw away his talent but earned GED, walked onto junior-college team and continues to work hard towards his goal of playing in the NFL.


http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1779111/bruce-irvin

3) Ladarius Green

I know a lot of people like Fleener, and I do too. But I like Ladarius as well, but mostly for his receiving. I think he would be a good option lining up in the slot and could be used in more of a receiving role than a blocking role.

Positives: Tremendous body control and concentration to pull the ball down in traffic. Closely covered on many receptions but had few drops. Good body control, focus and large 10-inch mitts. Has quick feet and lateral agility to uncover over the middle. Reliable jump-ball target with 82-inch wingspan. Effort blocker with good work and practice habits.

Negatives: Overwhelmed by stronger defenders at the point. Long arms don't get up and extended quickly enough as a blocker. Average second-level blocker who should erase defensive backs. Big fish in a small pond.


http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1689653/ladarius-green

4) Tommy Streeter

Streeter is quite raw and is currently winning off natural ability. He usually wins contested catches and has deceptive downfield speed during his routes and after the catch. However, Streeter has been quite limited in creating separation and the routes that he succeeds with.

He may not look like the typical slot receiver, but that is where Streeter is most successful. When facing off coverage or after moving in motion, Streeter can certainly win down the seam or in soft zones on intermediate routes. He is an instant red-zone target that can begin his career as an NFL team's fourth wide receiver and developmental project


http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1630465/tommy-streeter

I like Streeter a lot and have liked him for a while. I think if he gets good coaching and dedicates himself in the NFL he can be a beast. I really think he has that much talent. And with another hurricane on the roster in AJ, he has the perfect role model to look up to and develop. He wouldn't have to to a whole lot right away and could afford to learn.

4) Ron Brooks, CB/Gunner

Played in 13 games and made three starts … One of LSU's most experienced players having played in every game since 2008 (52 games) … A top reserve in the secondary who often played in LSU's nickel and dime packages … Made two interceptions this season and returned both for touchdowns … Has three career INTs and has returned all three for TDs … Set a career high with six tackles and also added one sack and a fumble recovery against Arkansas … Named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week after a stellar game at Ole Miss where he returned an interception 46 yards for a touchdown, recorded a sack, forced a fumble that he recovered and finished with four tackles … Tied his career high with 2.0 tackles for a loss, including one sack, and he added one PBU and one QB hurry as well against Western Kentucky … Made his second career start at cornerback against Auburn and made a huge impact with a 28-yard interception for a touchdown as well as four tackles, 0.5 TFLs, one forced fumble, one PBU and one QB hurry … Set a career high with three pass breakups versus Kentucky … Started his first career game at West Virginia … Serves as a gunner on punt coverage after downing several punts inside the 20 last year.


http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1244951/ron-brooks

Maybe a WTF pick to some, but I think he is worth the pick. Good player to have in that he accepts his role and does it to the best of his ability. He would make a decent back-up in the slot for McCain and he is an exceptional special teams player. I think he would add tremendous value to our kick coverage units. Would be a great gunner for us. Very good tackler with good athleticism.



4) Chris Rainey, RB/Slot/Returner


An extremely versatile athlete capable of making an impact as a running back, receiver or special teams standout, Rainey emerged during his senior season to be the first Florida running back since Emmitt Smith to lead the Gators in both rushing yards (861) and receptions (31). He followed that up with an impressive week of practice at the Senior Bowl in which his playmaking skills were largely put to the test at wide receiver, though his only touch during the game, itself, came on a five yard run.

A highly touted prep prospect, Rainey saw action immediately for the Gators but was sidelined after four games with a shoulder injury and eventually redshirted in 2008. He saw action in 48 more games over his Florida career, starting 19 contests. The all-purpose star left Florida having rushed for 2,464 yards (ninth all-time for the Gators) and caught 69 passes for 795 yards, scoring 19 touchdowns over his career.

At his size, Rainey certainly isn't a workhorse candidate at the next level. Some, in fact, see his greatest potential lining up as a slot receiver in a similar role to what Percy Harvin (himself a former Florida Gator) has with the Minnesota Vikings. If utilized as a back, Rainey's soft hands and playmaking ability could intrigue teams, especially considering the impact undersized multi-purpose backs like Darren Sproles, Reggie Bush and even Dexter McCluster saw for their respective clubs in 2011.


http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1273191/chris-rainey

The 3rd running back to complete the trio. Tate and Foster will get most of the carries, but Rainey would be an awesome addition. Very fast, can catch and he can run in between the tackles. He also adds value as a returner.

5) Janzen Jackson


Jackson's talent is undeniable. While built more like a cornerback than a safety, he has the vision, range, hitting ability and ball skills team want at free safety in today's pass-heavy NFL. Ultimately, the question isn't where he'd fit in an NFL defensive backfield but whether his serious off-field issues will keep him from getting a chance to do so.

POSITIVES: Lean, athletic build with plenty of room for additional muscle mass. Legitimate NFL-caliber athlete. Possesses good straight-line speed, fluid hips to turn and run and explosiveness out of his breaks. Good vision and anticipation as a free safety. Reads the quarterback's eyes and gets an excellent break on the ball. Is a considerably bigger hitter than his slight frame would lead you to believe. Closes quickly and generates an explosive collision on impact that can separate the football …

NEGATIVES: Possesses a slim build more conducive to cornerback than safety … A bit high cut … Physicality he shows as a hitter will wear on his own body too, especially considering his slight stature for the position … Lowers his shoulder for the big hit rather than wrapping up securely. Significant character red flags. Was arrested, along with two other Tennessee players for taking part in an armed robbery of a convenience store November 11, 2009 in Knoxville. Was ultimately released when prosecutors determined that he did not know the crime was being committed … Reportedly had multiple other run-ins with authorities at Tennessee for off-field concerns, including for substance abuse. Left the program to deal with "personal issues" in the spring of 2011. Was welcomed back to the team in July only to get dismissed from the team August 24 by head coach Derek Dooley …


Would be the closest thing to a true FS on our roster. I like Jackson more than I like Keo. He has good upside and some feel that he can play some corner. I like him as a safety for us though and I think he upgrades the back end. I think he would make the roster and challenge Demps and Nolan for back up pt. I don't think you can ask for a lot more out of a fifth round pick. Great value here if available.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1664218/janzen-jackson

6) Randy Bullock

Very good kicker that should be making field goals for us for a long time.

7) Chad Diehl


He's what I call a head banger. I really love this guys game. Not the greates with the ball in his hands, but he loves running into the hole and blowing fools up. Very solidly built.

Diehl is a classic sledgehammer fullback. He handles any blocking assignment he's handed from blitz pickup to straight-ahead drive blocking, and he almost always gets the job done with authority. Diehl also played on punt and kick coverages, kickoff returns, and won Clemson's Hustle and Dedication awards. He's a high-effort player and delivers high-impact blocks but won't likely carve a niche in an NFL offense beyond blowing open running lanes and giving up his body in short-yardage on occasion. The need for such role players has thinned, but many teams will be eager to acquire his services in the middle of the draft's third day.
