I loooove Greene in the 3rd.

I dont have an issue with Wells to the bucs because its hard to see him fall any further, but with their urgent need for a WR with Hilliard and Galloway being released and clayton a FA next year, Maclin would be a good pick since he is available.

Also I think that DET will go QB since there is not a #1 consensus OT.

Other than that good work.

I like the pick of Smith, but IMO the Lions will take Curry #1. Also, they have so many needs that I think it would be ridiculous for them to take a QB. I just don't see how they can justify taking a QB when he has nothing to work with. You gotta fix everything else before you worry about a QB. Besides neither Stafford or Sanchez is worth the #1 pick.

Also love the pick of Greene in the 3rd. Greene and Brown are my top 2 RB's for us to take in the draft and they both fall into our area of the 3rd round. Hopefully we can walk out of the 3rd with a backup RB.

For the Bucs, it came down to Wells and Maclin. Maclin made so much sense here but in the end, I just think that Wells is too talented for them to pass up. My thinking is that Wells and a WR (probably Harvin or Britt) in the top of the 2nd (Winslow trade) will be better than Maclin and a HB later. Even though I didn't change the picks from of the Winslow trade I decided to go that route.

I have Jason Smith as my #1 OT and I have for some time now. After reading about how well he did in the interviews at the combine, I really think the Lions will eventually look to him as the #1 pick.

Thanks for your input.

Well I have Stafford going #10 and Sanchez #17 so I don't think they are worth the #1.

As for the Freeman pick, new regimes usually want to bring in their own QB and Freeman has the tools. I think it would be a mistake to take him here, but Detroit isn't exactly known for drafting particularly well.

Re: bah007's Post-Combine Mock
 
I'm surprised you have us going Chung with Ayers still on the board. EDIT: Ooops. Nevermind. I had forgotten that Ayers isn't a rush specialist. My bad.

Of the teams I've done at least a little research on...

The Saints have issues on their defense but I don't think DE is their big need. They're looking at corner (especially if they don't sign Bartell) and outside linebacker.

That first pick you have for the Giants is a definite possibility but after that, I think you're off. They're looking at DE (which you covered) and OLB (I mean, they had Danny Clark starting last year) but they're also going to target a WR early. They're losing Toomer and who knows what's up with Burress. With their franchising of Jacobs, I don't think they're going with another tailback before the 4th or 5th.

I really wouldn't be surprised if they went Connor Barwin with their first pick and then the best WR with their second. With the way your mock was going, I would have expected them to go Robiskie.

Re: bah007's Post-Combine Mock
 
Also I understand the Andre Smith pick, but IDK why Cincy would take Harvin in the 2nd. He's never been suspended or been in trouble with the law to my knowledge.

LOL obviously I'm just kidding, but wouldn't it be just priceless if Cincy took Smith after his combine debacle. I don't think I could contain myself if they did.

Concerning a QB I was only talking about the #1 overall pick. I don't see them taking a QB in the 1st round. I could see them taking Freeman though in the 2nd.

That comment about a QB not going #1 was mainly directed at my man Super Mario.

Honestly, I cheated with our pick. I expected the Smith signing to happen so I passed on Ayers and went with Chung.

With the Saints it was either reach for D.J. Moore or take the best defensive player available. DE isn't their biggest need on defense, but they really only have three or four players on defense that aren't replaceable.

Robiskie was in play for the pick in the second round, and I think you make a good point. I probably should have gone with him there.

I edited my post.

I've had Ayers on my "to get" list so long and I hadn't updated that list since the Smith signing. I wasn't thinking.

This is a good mock and I'm sure took some time ... thanks .

I Like Rashad Johnson FS Bama over Pat Chung in this scenario. Other than that swap, I would be happy if things fell this way, even if Mathews is taken about 8-10 picks too high.

I like Rashad Johnson more than Chung as a player, but since we re-signed Eugene Wilson we need a SS not a FS.

Re: bah007's Post-Combine Mock
 
I might be the only one, but I REALLY want Aaron Maybin in the 1st now that we've addressed our LDE need with Antonio Smith. I like Maybin over Matthews and Cushing, but that's just me probably.

Do you mean as a LB? I think Maybin is an inriguing prospect as a DE, but I think he would be a liability in coverage as a 4-3 LB.

I have a real hard time projecting Maybin, not sure if he will be a RDE or OLB? same could be said for Mathews. Cushing has the tools to play inside or outside, not enamored with his mindset however advantage Mathews. in the end all three might just cancel each other out (Texans). I would prefer sticking with the game plan of addressing a pure pass rusher or cover cornerback rounds 1-2. no wang chung tonight, but I will take me some green :)

Yeah I think Maybin would be a good fit as a 4-3 OLB for the Texans, but that's just my opinion.

I would be hesitant to use a 1st round pick on him to play 4-3 OLB. He played DE his entire college career and if he played 3-4 OLB he would still be a pass rusher. But he would no longer be a pass rusher as a 4-3 OLB he would just be a LB.

Since he has never played that position and has always been a pass rusher I would hesitate to draft him that way. He has never had coverage responsibilties and would have to learn. He would also have to change his defensive mentality as he would not be rushing the passer on every play.

He could be great with that change and he could also bust. As a 4-3 team I would rather we draft him as a DE.

+1


How scary is it that USC is about to put a whole unit into the top 15ish of the draft?!?

Denver passing REYREY for cushing? San Diego a happy panda. Merriman + Maualuga = Hell on Wheels flying around in defensive territory

TexansFan33 03-02-2009 09:17 AM

Re: bah007's Post-Combine Mock
 
If Malaluga is there at 15, I say take him. That way we make him our MLB and move Demeco to the SLB.

For the second round I would rather take Conner Barwin he's jus so versatile we could move around alot on the field. I know we need a saftey but Sean Jones is still out there maybe we sign him...

Third round if we can get Shonn Greene then thats a steal if not I'd be happy with Michael Hamlin or Derek Pegues. :texflag:
