Texans 2012 draft grade
 
C-

OLB Mercilus pulled down by a pretty bad pick in Posey and Brooks a project. Too many BPA still on board. If Kubiak thinks these two are BPA he is tootie frootie

B

Like Mercileus and Brooks. Not sure yet about the WR guy.

C+

I think most sites will be handing us around a C+ or B- mainly because you normally don't trade down only to pick up a player that would have probably been there later on in the draft.

Mercilus was a solid pick, and even though you shouldn't really judge a player until they step on an NFL field, I don't see how you can't at least question the Posey pick.

B+

Don't see how Brooks is a "project". Most OL need a year or two to acclimate. Give him that and when Wade Smith is a FA we plug him in as his replacement. Mercilus was a great pick as well. Could replace Barwin next year when he's a FA.

Posey was a reach, but he could be a solid #2.

Early guess? B.

Mercilus gets a A-, Posey a D, Brooks an A. Solid B.

I'm giving a gut feeling C. I hope they prove me wrong. I do not like the WR pick at all.

I'll answer in 3-5 years. Thanks. See you soon.

C.

Only Mercilus keeps it from being a full-on F.

I'm so pissed over Posey that I cannot see straight enough to think clearly about Brooks yet.

Take a look at his sophomore and junior year. He was already productive player and probably produces even more numbers if he was playing his senior year.
And he didn't have a QB.
Posey stats not bad.


Also mercilus had 16 sacks and 9 FF. Whats wrong with that.

Day 1

I give it a B , filled a need with a player who I didnt expect to be on the board when the Texans picked.




Day 2

Again I give it a B. Filled two needs with quality players.

Seems like most of the long time draft followers dont care for Posey .... But I am happy with the pick , think he's far more polished than any of the other prospects that we were talking about taking in either of the first two rounds.

Sitting out most of his Sr. season hurt his draft stock but the production was there in the two prior seasons. Good size , good speed , great hands , polished route runner , effective blocker. What more can you ask for .... and in the 3rd round no less.

A-

Gee after reading some of these grades I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.


I'm also taking into account the ability to stock pile draft picks while grabbing players who have more than enough ability to fill our needs.


I'm happy so far. :)
