Steelb, can you email RNR to get him ready; he needs to make up for it or he gets to buy some beer. (I'll take a case or two, LOL)

Will do

It's time for him to provide some crawfish to go with the beer.

The choice is a little plain considering such a long list, LOL.

I like Hopkins, but I feel like he's a bit of a reach in the first.
But you've got to do what you've got to do once you draw up your board, right?

If I were in this situation as a packer GM I would trade down 10 times out of 10.

Actually It was a hard choice. None of he OL seemed worthy of this high a pick. The LB's didn't bring enough pass rushing ability other than Ogletree. I really considered him but couldn't do it because of his off field fiasco this offseason. The DL guys were really hard to pass up. It just come down who could help the most. Rodgers is top 3 QB. You have to surround him with weapons if you want to be successful.

Who would you have taken?

Te'o Te'o Te'o!!!!

Houston has the best looking imaginary girlfriends in the country. FACT.

Make it happen Corrosion!!!

No way!!!



I really dont like how this shook out for the Texans .... Im struggling with the pick as I just dont see any value with any of the positions of need. Getting the 5th best guy at a multitude of positions - DT , WR , OLB/DE or OT just isnt appealing. Rock N Randy's surprise pick of TE looks plausible here with Eifert being the best TE in the draft .... but I just cant seem to pull the trigger.
Under this scenario I think a trade down would be optimal ...

The Broncos wanted help in the secondary and hoped that Rhodes, Trufant or Vaccaro would fall...hopefully they can get DB help later....

with the 28th pick the Broncos select....


Manti Te'no way in hell I'm picking this rube...


Broncos select...

Damontre Moore DE Texas aTm

Had a poor combine, but a good enough pro day. Put up the stats in the SEC which, to me, matters a whole lot more. 12.5 sacks... led his team with 85 tackles. 21 tackles for a loss, two passes broken up, a blocked kick and a forced fumble. Top 10 talent IMO

Fills a need too after the Dumerville fiasco!

Moore is the guy I wanted for the Pats. With that said I'm going to take the guy I feel is the beast safety in the draft. With the 28th pick the Patriots select Jonathan Cyprien S Florida International. May be a little early but I'm not in need of a TE and don't have anyone else graded as highly.

I really felt like I was in no mans land with the guy's that were left .... It was a wide open field of second tier prospects.

I didnt feel like any of the WR's left (almost went with Justin Hunter) had seperated themselves from the others remaining. Brown at OLB lacks the size and isnt much of a playmaker - just a "solid player at the position".


Games are won and lost in the trenches ....

I really think this is the best choice other than trading down. Since the talent level is all pretty equal at this point you have to consider that WR position still has plenty of comparable talent to take later in the draft. LB should have solid but not spectacular choices still a available as late as the 4th round. We always find OL guys later in the draft that are adequate. DL after Short and Hankins is a big drop in talent.

Exactly my thinking on the whole mess .... It boiled down to Short being the best DT available at a thin position while WR and LB are rather deep positions.

Wow some interesting thoughts
What beer am I buying
Budlight? XX? Siner? Blue moon?

I think green bay will take Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
I think he would fit well on the end for GB

I can't believe we took Short! I'd rather Eifert. If the board turns out like that we are fudged.
I would have even rather reached on Elam or Hunter than Short
I feel NT is so deep with J. Williams, Jenkins, B. Williams just to name a few.

I have a hard time not seeing the texans add a offensive weapon
I think McNair as well as Kube/Smith know that they have neglected the offense in the draft and FA over the years. I think they will stay true to there open media comments and go for speed and skill on the offensive side.

No legit WR left at 27, hunter is a reach. Just take Eifert and get Williams, Or Best available WR left if there is a good one left. I truly feel Eifert can be one of the best TE in the NFL in Houston
He is as dynamic as they come.
A former WR, he is a dangerous TE. They guy to literally stretch the middle and be a big threat n the Redzone with we struggle to do if passing.
Open up huge holes for Arian Foster weather taking LBers with him in pass coverage or blocking the edge for Arian to run around.

I think Eifert along a legit WR2 could take the offense too new heights even with Schaub's limitations

There is something about Hunter that just don't seem right. He looks clumsy at times. It looks like his legs get tangled up. His legs look too long. I can see him having knee issues in the future. He reminds me of a WR that used to play for the Vikings opposite of Carter. Can't remember his name.

Hunter just isn't that much better than a lot of the WR's left.

True. McCourty was moved back with Chung being injured and never got back to form.

And teams play plenty of nickel and any of those three safeties can come down to cover the slot or the TE or even blitz.

What, tall fast and runs good routes? You're right the Texans have never had a WR opposite AJ like that.

BTW, I really like the Short pick. No more running up the middle 68% of the time. Short helps keep Cushing and ILB draft pick clean. This is actually more of an impact pick for the Texans than picking Hunter or another WR.

I think someone will take him early based upon measurables. I actually considered instead of Short .... but without the ability to trade back , I wouldnt make the pick.

The San Francisco 49ers select...

Matt Elam - S, Florida

http://sports.cbsimg.net/images/collegefootball/13:01:04-Matt_Elam.jpg

The 49ers have one of the stoutest defenses in the league, however, they have developed somewhat of a weakness at the Safety position in the past year. SS Donte Whitner gave up the most TD's in the league this year from the Safety position and All-Pro FS Dashon Goldson left for Tampa Bay in Free Agency.

Elam is an extremely physical and well-rounded Safety prospect. He can play in the box and make big hits at the line of scrimmage or he can drop back in deep coverage and make plays. He's very rangy, instinctive, and has great ball skills. IMO, he is the best ball-hawk Safety in this draft by far. I have him pegged as the best Safety in this draft and have no problem pulling the trigger on him.

I know all about him. I would love to see him opposite Watt. Just wonder how long it will take him to "get it" in the NFL. Could turn out to be great or nothing special. I lean towards great with him but that uncertainty is what puts Short ahead of him.

My favorite player in this draft. Really hope the Texans take him.

I was targeting Jonathan Cyprien because that's what all the sites have SF taking here, but with NE taking him off the board that gave me the opportunity to take my guy. Elam is a flat-out stud. Was easily the best player on the Florida defense this year, including Shariff Floyd.

SS Donte Whitner gave up the most TD's in the league this year from the Safety position and All-Pro FS Dashon Goldson left for Tampa Bay in Free Agency.

Elam is an extremely physical and well-rounded Safety prospect. He can play in the box and make big hits at the line of scrimmage or he can drop back in deep coverage and make plays. He's very rangy, instinctive, and has great ball skills. IMO, he is the best ball-hawk Safety in this draft by far. I have him pegged as the best Safety in this draft and have no problem pulling the trigger on him.

Good pick,

Elam is my #1 rated S, I like Elam better than Vaccaro.

I emailed Rock-N-Randy and asked him to send me his list of players. Have not heard from him yet.

I just wanted to say thanks for everybody making their picks after hrs. It really helps the mock move along. Great job of picking players guys. This is one of the most realistic mocks I've seen this offseason.

yeah there have been some really good picks made , especially in the last few selections.


I kinda feel like Im stuck between a rock and a hard place picking for the Texans , I cant make everyone happy but Im going to pick who I think helps the team the most in the coming season as its now or never for a Superbowl with this team .... Im not looking too far down the road with these selections. Maybe that gives some perspective to the past pick and those to come.

Atlanta takes Margus Hunt, DE SMU

My thought process with making this pick is that the Falcons are extremely weak on the ends of their defensive line, and there were a couple of guys I could've chosen. I went with Hunt specifically because of his measureables and with the thought that Mike Smith could get a lot out of a prospect like Hunt.

The defending Super Bowl Champions Paid Cool Joe Flacco and hung everyonr else out to dry.
As far as needs and holes where do I begin??? I know Ozzie Newsome is the best at drafting and scouting but I dont even think he can pull this one off.
They traded a leader away and Boldin - WR2 is needed but no value here at pick 32 overall
Ray Lewis THE leader retired along with Birk - MLB and C are needs
Webb coming of injury, Williams gone in FA - CB might need to be taken, Banks is still there
Ravens let Reed walk and cut Pollard
Ravens have no back end literally, no FS or SS
But with Vaccaro, Elam and Cyprien, no Safety worth considering
Some edge rushees remain
Tank Carridine who has a lot of buzz and Datone Jones who is versatile and can bring interior rush
Run stuffer is needed keep LBers clean with a guy like Jesse Williams or John Jenkins
Not a lot of value here and what's on the board.,
If it fell this way, ... I think I know who I would select

In the 2013 NFL draft the Baltimore Ravens select
Menelik Watson, OT, Florida

With Flacco now the highest paid player in NFL history, protecting that investment, that assets is priority #1, it is paramount!

I agree completely .... this is a mess of a situation for the Texans to find themselves in.


Im going to go with Kawann Short DT Purdue. Fills a big hole in the middle with Cody being gone. The other serious consideration was K St. OLB Arthur Brown.

Excellent pick for the Texans. Short shores up the middle, plays the run well, pressures the QB well, handles a double team well which will free up Smith and Watt to make plays, and helps to keep out ILB's clean freeing them to make plays. Again excellent pick. :bravo:

The way I see this reciever class is simple , you have Cordarrelle Patterson and .... everyone else thru the middle of the 3rd round. I dont think Hunter would have stepped in day one and been the #2. Allen , Hopkins or Patterson may have been a different story.

You still have a long list of guy's on the board - Robert Woods , Quinton Patton , Terrance Williams , Markus Wheaton , Justin Hunter , Aaron Dobson , Da'Rick Rogers , Ryan Swope , Marquise Goodwin and Kenny Stills. Its a strong possibility one or more of them is there when the Texans pick in round three.
That whole list of guy's is pretty darn close in terms of talent.

Ok don't get why you specifically pointed out WR then. I don't care what position we draft with our first round pick as long as that player is the BPA at a position of need and contributes right away. If two players of equal value are there for the taking we should pass on the one where equal talent will be available later.

You have to factor in who at each position will be available later in the draft.

steelbtexan
03-27-2013, 09:17 AM
While I agree with Corrosion and you about about the need for players that can contribute now and love the Short pick, the Texans shouldn't gamble too much and lose out on an impact WR. They should take the best WR in the group in the 2nd rd. Unless there's a stud LB/OT that falls.

Datone Jones - DE, UCLA

http://binaryapi.ap.org/6242a7beb46941bc97bf65885fa699f5/940x.jpg

San Francisco has a stout front seven, but beastly 3-4 DE Justin Smith is not getting any younger and it could be time to groom his replacement. The 49ers signed Glenn Dorsey in Free Agency, but have stated they intend to use him at NT and still need pass rushing help up front.

Jones is one of the premiere interior pass rushers in this draft and is an excellent fit as a 5' technique in SF's front. He has a great frame and could add weight if needed, although that doesn't seem necessary. He plays with great strength and explosiveness. He's very athletic for a guy his size and has a sizable repertoire of pass rushing moves. Jones is a very talented player that adds even more versatility to an already dangerous defensive unit.

I know that T.J. McDonald was a slight reach but my guys were gone. I looked at Eric Reid but he seemed to struggle without Honey Badger, Claiborn & Brandon Taylor being there as security blankets.

I wanted another position but he was gone and I think my next couple of guys will be there later.

We didn't make your pick until around 11:15am CST that's past the 4 hr window. Sorry if there was a misunderstanding probably due to time zone issues. If so that's my fault for not being more clear. I apologize.

OK, but I don't know which one is trash.
I like Jenkins but he seems more risky with his weigh problem.
I'd like him for the Texans preferrably in the fourth, but since we have two 3rds, I wouldn't mind taking him there.
I just think the risk is a bit high in the second round.

Personally, I would have gone with a WR, so next year when the Jets pick a QB, he will have a good target to throw it to. Lots of good WRs still on the board, I'm surprised more haven't been picked considering all the attention the position gets from Texans fans.

To be completely honest with you, if it is going to move this quickly, I don't have time for this draft.

I'm not criticizing the pick, hope it didn't come off that way. I just think the Jets situation appears to be more of a 3 year plan than a 1. And I don't blame you for passing on the QBs here, many would be tempted to take one, and I for one would hold out on that. They are stuck with Sanchez one more year, then I expect them to move on to a new QB in 2014.

I also don't value Santonio Holmes as a #1 WR, and I think they overpaid him quite a bit. Wouldn't be surprised to see him cut in a year or two. Their real strength right now is the o-line, and even that is suspect on the right side (kind of like the Texans). The more I think about this, the more holes I see on the Jets, like at RB. Lacy might have be a good pick for them too, he seems like their style of RB.

Anyways, it's all good, this is just for fun :shades:

It's not about being notified. I check the thread often enough to know when I may be close. I work in property management. Sometimes I have to run off and view te damage on a roof collapse, or a car running into a building, or a fire, or a car running into the gate, or calm down some crack head.

With the 42nd pick in the fake Texans Talk Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills will select Wide Receiver, Justin Hunter, University of Tennessee. Noticing a lack of weapons at the WR spot, and with a new QB who is probably going to take over the reigns, the Bills will take the other playmaker that made Tyler Bray look so good.

http://usarmy.vo.llnwd.net/e2/c/images/2012/11/07/271128/size0.jpg

The young Barkley will have a shiny new toy to go along with Stevie Johnson, and hopefully the Bills will have at least a serviceable passing game to go with those two baller RB's they keep locked up in the cold north.

To me, the most important thing is to make this mock draft something that all participants can enjoy.

I volunteer not to have a team so I can spend time monitoring to help move things along in a pace that suits everybody.

However, there's always give and take.
If we're going to make this enjoyable for every one, it will be helpful if everybody is in the loop.

None of us knows about another's schedule if we don't communicate.

Some have school, some have work.
I'm mostly free for the time being, so I thought I'd help out.

Well it appears Seminole left, so I think he quit. If anyone wants to take over this team, we should get that done now rather than later.

I don't know the Dolphins needs that well, but I do know they don't need a WR. CB appears to be a need, RT is a need if they don't come to terms with Eric Winston. TE is a need because Dustin Keller isn't that great and Fasano left. RB is a need after losing Reggie Bush.

I think Eddie Lacy RB could go here, Darius Slay CB, Johnthan Banks CB or maybe Terron Armstead OT.

We have a month to finish this thing .... and have gone thru a round and a half rather quickly even with some of us taking ~4 hours.

With the 44th pick in the NFL mock draft the Carolina Panthers select Kyle Long, OT/OG Oregon.

Wolverine Fan/ SanDiego is on the clock.

I'm not a huge fan of this guy. I did not feel right about the whole "fiasco" at all. If Houston selects him, I would throw a fit. But this isn't the Texans.

With that said, this is great value. Some teams have him pegged as a 1st rounder. San Diego has a gaping hole on the inside of their defense and he may be able to fill it.

We have a month to finish this thing .... and have gone thru a round and a half rather quickly even with some of us taking ~4 hours.

I think it might limit participation if we cut back the timer too much .... We'll end up with 5-6 people drafting for 32 teams .... Ive got my hands full with two teams.

Thank you. I signed a contract with a 4 hour window. I run a very busy shop. If I knew up front that there was someone who didn't have anything to do except push this to having a pick in 5 minuets I'd have never signed on.

If that's the way it's gonna go, let me KNOW NOW and I'll resign as the GM of the Jets 'cause I just can't do it. I want to pick for my team but if I can't have my allotted time then I'm out.

Just lemme know.

NOW please.

4 hrs seems right. The rules aren't changing. I made an honest mistake with TexanSeminole.

That way this draft doesn't get in the way of real life/work.

Quit being drama queens, guys, LOL!

Suggestions are good; don't mean we're gonna do anything we haven't agreed on (as a group).

I think RNR and the Cowboys will be on the clock at 7:00 AM,
but let steelb go over things with them (Earl and R&R) in the morning before we continue on, just because Earl will be up again (for the Steelers.)

So, steelb will make the announcement and we can go on from there; shouldn't be too much of a problem... at least I hope so!

Cowboys have many remaining needs to address

DL — With the defensive shift, the Cowboys need a catalytic player — a three-down scheme-wrecker who can rush the passer, collapse the pocket and stuff the run. Anthony Spencer, who would be an end in this scheme, was franchised. That locks him up for this season, but long term the position could be in flux. The Cowboys also could use help inside too.

OLB — The Cowboys appear set with Sean Lee in the middle and Bruce Carter on the weak side (assuming they stay healthy, of course), but there is no game-changer at the other spot. A dynamic player is needed at OLB

OL — Despite making changes to four of five spots last year, more are coming. Tyron Smith is the left tackle; after that it’s a lot of unknowns. OLG Nate Livings probably will start, too, but the interior needs help at center and guard. ORT Doug Free gave up snaps to Jermey Parnell and was cut this offseason. Parnell looked OK in limited time, but do the Cowboys want him as their Week One starter? Parnell likely will receive competition. Cowboys must protect Romo too have a chance in the NFC East.
-via Yahoo sports

In the 2013 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys select....
Jamie Collins, LB, Southern Mississippi
Collins is the most explosive defender in the draft
Just look at his combine numbers
Once a sleeper now he has risen too day 2 selection potentially 1st RD pick.
Dallas needs a buzz player a buzz pick.
Jerry Jones needs Jamie Collins, who is the Tavon Austin of defense.
This guy is a former safety who in a few short years turned himself into a heat seeking missile at 6'3 250 lbs. Linebacker. Inside outside guy. Low high, has a huge range, can fly all over and literary jump out of his shoes.
Come April, whoever truly gets this guy is going to get one hell of a player.
Guy is committed, it shows in his play, his heart, his body/frame.

His combination of size, speed, strength, and athleticism are rare and should have him hearing his name called earlier than expected. Collins played on some poor Southern Miss teams and wasn’t surrounded by much talent. Despite that fact, he managed to produce 10 sacks during his senior campaign on an 0-12 team

Wanted to go OL but none worthy of this selection
In two short picks Dallas' defense got a whole lot better in a hurry with Vaccaro and now Collins. To add with former picks Lee Spencer Ware and Claiborne (FA addition) Carr.

With the 37th pick in the 2013 TTL Mock Draft, the Bengals select:

Arthur Brown - OLB Kansas St.

Not a bad pick at all, I think Brown has a lot of talent and may slip into the first round when it's all said and done.

Yeah I thought so to. I actually considered him at 27 for the Texans and dont think it would have been a reach. His size kinda scared me off there but here in the second round for a team needing LBer help almost as bad as the Texans ...

I found it very difficult to make that choice as its a real conflict of interest with the Texans who Im also drafting for.
I hated to take away from the talent pool of a position that I may be picking from for the Texans .... Cause I really dont give a damn about the Bungles but feel obligated to do the same job for them and for the board in general as I would my Texans.
I feel like both picks Ive made thus far for Cincy have a negative effect upon the Texans ... at RT and at LB. :rake:

Hope your day has gotten better. Good pick BTW

Tomorrow will be a better day. It was just one of those crappy, only happens twice a year, kind of days. I'm just glad that another one of my picks didnt go by. I didn't get around to the computer again until late.

This mock is quite different than others I have seen. Miami has a ton of later round selections. I need to brush up on my late round guys.
