I like this early mock for the Texans both with selection (William Moore FS Missouri) & who will demand incoming trade offers (Eugene Monroe OT Virginia). For instance it would make sense for Detroit to use their 2nd pick of the 1st rd. (aquired from Cowboys for Roy Williams) with a 2nd rd. pick to move up for Monroe & provide protection for #1 overall pick Bradford. that would leave Houston with the 23rd overall selection & the 33rd overall pick. #12 pick = 1200 23rd =760 + 33rd =580 total = 1340 vs. 1200 which is made good (#80 = 190) with Philly, who covet TE Jermaine Gresham. hauling in another 2nd plus 3rd to hand back to Detroit (not Texans pick).

end result you can select Moore & be done with it or get more by trading down #29 (from Philadelphia) OLB Brian Cushing #33 (from Detroit)DE George Selvie #48 (from Philadephia) DT Jerry Peria. plus Texans keep their own 2nd Center Antoine Caldwell, Alabama & 3rd rd. pick RB James Davis, Clemson. not a bad haul if I must so myself.....replacement for Greenwood who has length & can cover, new starting DE with elite pass rushing skills, tough, pocket pushing DT next to Amobi, athletic/versatile O-lineman that can start @ Center or Guard killing two birds with one stone & power running back between the tackles to help balance the ground game.
