1) KAWAAN SHORT, NT

Should compete for a starting spot from day 1. Good all around player, but I especially like the way he rushes the passer from the NT position. I think he and Earl would be a nice combo at the position.

2) JUSTIN HUNTER, WR

Big and fast. I love Justin Hunter. He's raw, but he truly has #1 potential. I think he can do it all. Can catch the ball short and pick up YAC...He can also make catches down the field. He's 6'4" with 4.4 speed and good agility. He moves like a little guy.


3) BRANDON JENKINS, OLB

If not for his injury that kept him out all of last year, he'd likely be going earlier. Explosive off the snap. Would be a good back up for Merciless and I think he could actually provide some competition for playing time...Especially in pass rush situations.

3) DJ SWEARINGER, S

Swearinger can play either safety role in Wade's defense. I really like Swearinger and I think he's excellent value here. After Redd retires he's your starter and immdiately makes an impact on special teams, as a back up and if/when we go to the three safety look.

4) DAVID QUESSENBERRY, OT

I watched some clips on him at the senior bowl practices and I like what I saw. Good athlete, strong frame and he moves well. Looks like he could be really good in pass pro. I think he'd immediately be your swing tackle and could eventually challenge for a starting spot if not immediately.

5) KENJON BARNER, RB/KR, OREGON

Fast aggressive runner. Not Trindon Holiday fast, but I think he's more reliable as a returner and can actually contribute on offense. I think this would be an excellent pick up at this point in the draft. Fills two needs with a talented prospect.


6) JOHNNY ADAMS, CB

I like Johnny Adams. He reminds me of Glover Quinn a little bit. Tough corner back with good coverage skills and also has some returner ability. I think he challenges Roc Carmichael for his spot on the depth chart. Has the potential to play a bigger role in the future.

6) ZACH SUDFELD, TE

Big guy at 6'7" and about 260ish lbs. Runs about a 4.7 forty, good hands, good blocker. I think he makes the roster as the 3rd TE. Watched him on film some and I liked what I saw. Shows good blocking skills, but also really fluid catching passes for a guy so big.

7) ZACH LINE, FB/RB

I don't know if he makes the roster, but I like Line. I think he could immediately contribute on special teams, and could play the FB position for us even though he ran the ball a bunch for SMU. He's built like a full back, but he's quicker than most guys at that position. He's 6'0" and a little over 230 lbs. Could easily be a back up full back/emergency ball carrier.

I didn't draft an ILB...Don't really like the ILB's in this draft and I think we can get a guy named Jon Major from Colarado as an UDFA and honestly I'd take him over most of the guys that I've looked at in this draft. Plus, I think we can still bring Dobbins back...Maybe sign another free agent or two...

I've mostly seen Hunter get mocked in the late first round. I think we may have to use our first round pick on him if we are going to get him. It'd be nice if we could trade down and pick him up, and gain an extra pick.

Nice draft though. I do think we will fit an ILB somewhere into our first 4 picks.

Seriously doubt they go with a NT with the first pick.....my guess is MLB/OLB


I could get on board with the 2nd pick though if he's there....I don't think swearinger will be there in the 3rd...

Stud of a draft if we can pull it out of the hat.

I would only hope we could have that kind of Draft because it pretty much hits most of our largest needs. Not everyone might like a DT as the first pick, but I saw this guy play in the Senior Bowl and he's very talented and he becomes a immediate upgrade @ nose while Earl can play in reserve at both NT & DE.
I especially like your choice of OT Quessenberry, another player I got a look-see
at in the SB, but I think I'd move on him quicker in the third round. And another good move on your part waiting to use our second-round pick on a WR thereby leveraging the depth of this Draft at that position. Hey Rey, that's a very strong Mock Draft for the Texans !

Short is very good DT but did not see him often at nose so I have to project here.

Brandon Jenkins is a nice pickup. It's hard to say where he should be drafted, given the lisfranc injury and also that he was a high second round guy before the injury. As noted, he is explosive and can move around and rush from different angles.

JMO:

1. Short, love the player and pick. He fits perfectly what we need on the D-line.
2. Hunter, love the player but don't think he's available in the late 2nd.
3. Jenkins, ehhhhhh
3b. Swearinger, good pick as long as he can handle the pass coverage duties.
4. Quessenberry, good versatile lineman but needs to add weight and has the size to do so that it shouldn't affect his athleticism, good pick.
5. Barner, nice player I think we've got other holes to address before #3 RB though.
6. Adams, I like this pick alot, he's got very good athleticism and not afraid to play the run. Good comparison to Quinn.
6b. Sudfeld, I don't know much about him but he's got an extensive injury history. I got my eyes on Michael Williams-TE down here.
7. Line, nice pick.

That would be a great draft.
