rmartin65's Texans Mock Draft Version 1.0
Ok, here it goes. Please critique
2009 Texans Mock Draft
1) Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama
I know, another D Lineman? However, Cody is the run-stuffer the Texans need, and will occupy at least 2 blockers. Stamina is a concern (at 365, of course) but he has the makings of an anchor for the line. Will help Okoye rush the passer.
2) Auston English, DE, Oklahoma
Yet another DL? Yes, English will be the pass rusher this team needs, and is none to shabby against the run. Imagine a DL of: Mario-Okoye-Cody-English
3) Brandon Carter, G, Texas Tech
Not ideal for the zone scheme, but it does not really look like the Texans run that anyway. Carter will bring an attitude to the line.
4) Bruce Johnson, CB, Miami
Too long to wait for a corner, but Johnson has good athleticism. The improved pass rush hopefully justifies waiting until the 4th round for secondary help.
5) A.Q. Shipley, C, Penn State
Hopefully a diamond in the rough. Very solid player
6) Lee Robinson, OLB, Alcorn State
Too long to wait for OLB help, but again I am banking on the improved DL. Robinson is a minor project, but athleticism and production cannot be denied.
7) Tyler Roehl, HB, North Dakota State
Hear me out, Roehl can play on special teams, and backup the FB spot and RB spot. He is a multi-purpose guy that can benefit the team.
And what the heck, top 5 free agents:
1) Brian Toal, OLB, Boston College
Talented player, just always seems to be injured.
2) Jason Boltus, QB, Hartwick
Project QB puts up insane stats
3) Javorris Jackson, FS, Savannah State
Big FS with range and playmaking ability
4) Tony Dixon, RB, Kentucky
Can never have to many runningbacks
5) Julius Pruitt, WR, Ouachita Baptist
Extremely talented, raw receiver.
