Yuck....

I do not like Vinny Curry...

I mean...He's well built football player, and he's not terrible, but I'd rather have someone more explosive...

I would probably sob with joy as two of my favorite players. Anyone watching Curry especially at Senior Bowl would love this kid. He benched 225 28 times. 4.64 40 with 35" vertical @ pro day. He had wrist injury @ combine. 6'3" 265 with ability to create fumbles. Great stats. Think he will be gone but like Ronnell Lewis #58

Wright is simply amazing. Now come on LZ with a third...

I just don't know if those guys will be there but the draft is so unpredictable. If they are available at those two spots I will have no complaints.

Its hard to argue with filling our top 2 needs like that.

That would have me feeling as good as the JJ Watt/Brooks Reed combo from last year!

Rey
03-27-2012, 02:55 PM
I haven't watched a lot of fletcher cox...

Is he good enough to go at #6?

He's good but not JJ Watt good. So that would be a bit of a reach there LZ.

I think Curry fits what we look for in a player. He will give all out effort every snap. May not be a WOW athlete but will be there all 60 minutes.

I would be ok with that draft, think I would not go WR first round but that is just my philosophy.

That would be a pretty good draft.

If I'm cincy, I'd take Floyd in this mock. With the great defense in that division it'd be nice to counteract some of that.

They'd be good at wr for a while. Aj green, simpson and Floyd would be extremely hard to guard.

I don't think Wright is what the Texans are looking for at WR. Randle or Hill if they go WR in the 1st. Curry would make sense in the 2nd, though Bruce Irvin is the more dynamic pass rusher.

Can't see the Dolphins passing on Tannehill. Not even if Blackmon dropped. And why does Cleveland, St. Louis, and Jacksonville all pass on Blackmon? If he has that many red flags, he'll keep dropping.

I was thinking the same about Cleveland, but they have them taking Floyd later in the first, then Wilson in the second. I don't really see them going after another CB so high in this draft after taking Hayden a couple of years ago. But without trading down, it's kind of hard to take anyone else.

It might make more sense for them to take Blackmon there, then grab Cordy Glenn or Devon Still later in the first. That's probably what I would do if I were them.

Steve Smith might play angrier than anyone else in the NFL. He's a midget bully who feels like he has to prove himself on every single play. "Throw me the m*-f* ball!!" is his mantra, and the rookie QB listened. Huge chip on his his shoulder works for him.

I don't see Wright, or really anyone else, in that very unique class.

And why does Cleveland, St. Louis, and Jacksonville all pass on Blackmon?I think we'll see Blackmon go top 6, maybe by trade as Rams/Browns may be discussing.

Fortunately Texans don't have to have an elite WR just someone who can take pressure off AJ by going across middle, deep or sideline route & hang onto the ball. Wright is known to jump against taller defenders and take the ball in. He can play slot or flanker. Not an AJ replacement but a great #2.

Lance use to post his mocks here himself, haven't seen much of him around here lately?

His first round is usually quite accurate. I don't like Claiborne over Richardson @ #4 however. Think they should move forward with Colt & install more of a running offense, starting with Trent, then adding OL help.

Why pass on Blackmon & reach for Cox? need immediate impact WR.

Would not complain with the Wright pick whatsoever :doot: but if Pittsburgh addresses their injured OL to help protect big Ben, Hightower could be the pick instead? Hence I would change their selection to Amini Silatolu.

In our Texan Talk Mock, picking for the Patriots I selected both Perry & Reyes, that makes me feel good :)

Has Texans selecting OLB Curry in 2nd to back-up Barwin & Reed. If Texans select Hightower in first that would probably change this pick to a WR.

Justin Blackmon is just so damn good. St. Louis would be a scary offense with Bradford throwing to both Blackmon and Lloyd, and then Jackson pounding from the ground.

Addition - Could you imagine if St. Louis added Blackmon at #6 and then trade with us to get Coby Fleener at #26 ( Houston gets 33rd and 96th picks). St. Louis would easily be the best offense in the NFC West.

>.> Brandon Lloyd is a patriot now. The Rams do have many draft picks now though thanks to the Redskins.

Rams will be a dominate team in the NFC west, but not just yet. Give it 2 more years.

:kubepalm: Maybe I should pay more attention! lol... all the more reason they ARE going to draft Blackmon!

I understand that people want to improve the WR position. I even love Kendall Wright but there are other positions that literally have no reliable depth and it's not like our passing game has sucked for the last few years. Hell in 2010 we were number one in yards. Last year we were doing well before Schaub went down.

I know there is no superstar other than Johnson but do you really think adding a rookie WR (other than Floyd or Blackman) is going to be more benificial to our team than adding depth on the OL. What about TE? We only have 2 on the roster and one of them will be 30 next year, has an injury history and a huge contract. The other one has had one catch in two years. We run a lot of 2 TE sets.

WR
A. Johnson
K. Walter
J. Jones
L. Jean
J. Iglesias
J. Maehl
T. Holliday

TE
O. Daniels
G. Graham

What about Inside Linebacker? After Cushing who on that list would you like to see get significant playing time?

B. Cushing
D. Sharpton Coming off a season ending injury.
D. Smith Who???
M. Alexander No way!

Hell look at our depth at Offensive Tackle
D. Newton 7th rounder?
A. Gardner ooh!!!!

And Offensive Guard

T. Austin :mariopalm:


And Defensive End

T. Jamison
R. Harris :goodluck:

Nose Tackle
E. Mitchell Really??

Now look at Outside Linebacker

C. Barwin
B. Reed
Played as well as you could ask them to. Both are solid starters and won't come off the field much.


B. Braman
J. Nading

Not household names but I would take them and their limited snaps to date over any of the depth at nearly any other position.

I'm not trying to make it look like WR and OLB are perfect but neither position is as bad as what many many here are trying to make it out to be. There is no way we are going into this draft thinking we have to draft a WR and an OLB with our first two picks. Only message board drafters do that.

I think a lot of people here are going to be really disappointed after the draft.

Why don't we just draft Fleener giving Schaub two huge targets that play into his strengths and have the best passing offense in the NFL? :snowday:

I know 99% disagree, but I would take Fleener over Wright. But my #1 choice is Perry, then an ILB, then we can worry about OL depth and a WR.

Final mock draft of 2012 (http://blog.chron.com/fantasyfootball/2012/04/final-mock-draft-of-2012/)

1 Indianapolis - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
2 Washington – Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
3 Minnesota - Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
4 Cleveland - Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
5 Jacksonville - Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma St. (trade with Tampa)
Z-Report Says - Jacksonville covets a wide receiver and I can see them trading up just a couple of spot to make that happen since Tampa can make do without Kalil.

6 Buffalo - Matt Kalil, LT, USC (trade with St.Louis)
Z-Report Says - The only team more desperate for help at left tackle would be Arizona, but they don’t have enough ammo to come and get Kalil. The Rams want to move back and the Bills want Kalil. This trade could very well happen if Minnesota takes Claiborne and the Browns take Richardson.

7 Tampa Bay - Luke Kuechley, LB, Boston College (trade with Jacksonville)
8 Miami - Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
9 Carolina - Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
10 St. Louis - Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame (trade with Buffalo)
11 Kansas City - Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
12 Seattle - Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State
13 Arizona – Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
Z-Report Says - The Cardinals need tackle help in the worst way and this is simply too early for Riley Reiff or Cordy Glenn. Look for the Cardinals to try and trade this pick and pick up another draft pick since they gave away their 2nd this year in exchange for Kevin Kolb. If they stand pat,

14 Dallas - Mark Barron, SS, Alabama
15 Philadelphia - Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
16 New York Jets - Chandler Jones, DE/OLB, Syracuse
17 Cincinnati - Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
18 San Diego - David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
19 Chicago - Shea McClellin, DE, Boise State
20 Tennessee - Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
21 Cincinnati - Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
22 Cleveland - Melvin Ingram, OLB, South Carolina
23 Detroit - Cordy Glenn, OT/OG, Georgia
24 Green Bay - Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State (trade with Pittsburgh)
Z-Report Says - The Packers have plenty of picks and will likely move up in this year’s first round to target a player on the defensive side of the ball. If they wait around this long, they could move up and grab Worthy whose physical build reminds me of Cullen Jenkins.

25 Denver - Dont’a Hightower, ILB, Alabama
26 Houston - Courtney Upshaw, DE, Alabama
27 New England – Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois
28 Pittsburgh - Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin (trade with Green Bay)
29 Baltimore - Nick Perry, OLB, USC
30 San Francisco - Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State
31 New England - Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
32 New York Giants - Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
