My 2009 Texans mock draft....first ever.
This is the first time I've ever made a mock draft up so you guys be nice.
The Texans curently have the #8 draft spot but I think we'll finish the year drafting about 6th or 7th and I'm proposing a trade down with Detroit.
Detroit would get our #7 pick (worth 1500 points on the trade value chart) and Houston would get from Detroit the 1st round pick they got from Dallas a couple weeks ago, currently the #25th pick (worth 720 points). We'd also get Detroits own 1st pick in the 2nd round #33 (worth 580 points) and the 3rd round pick Detroit got from Dallas as well, #89 (worth 145 points) for a total of 1445 points. Detroit would be giving up 2 picks they got from Dallas and only giving up one of their own picks and gaining another high 1st round pick so they could fill LT and QB in the same draft. Gaining the extra picks, I propose our draft would look something like this:
1. Alex Mack-C-California.
2a. B.J. Raji-DT-Boston College.
2b. Myron Rolle-SS-Florida St.
3a. Greg Middleton-DE-Indiana.
3b. Best OG available (Tyronne Green/Auburn, Trevor Canfield/Cincinnati, Anthony Parker/Tennessee, etc..)
4. Rashad Jenning-RB-Liberty (hopefully still available).
5. Bear Pascoe-TE-Fresno St. (hopefully still available).
6. Andrew Gardner-OT-Georgia Tech.
