Default Re: Ourlads mock draft

here is another trade down scenero for a team who needs a RB (remember San Diego is sitting there @ #16) Philadephia. The Eagles own two 1st rd. picks their own #28th (did the math - 2nd #53 {660+370=1030} Texans 1st #15 1040) & Carolinas #1 pick #21st. doubt they would trade away 2nd. also doubt Rick Smith would risk trading down that far & losing a specific targeted prospect. so the trade they agree on is in exchange for the 15th overall selection, thats assuming Ourlads is correct & Moreno is still on the board, the Texans would receive Philly's pick aquired from Carolina #21 + 3rd (165) + 4th (60) = 225. Remember the Texans pick #15 is worth 1040 vs. Philly (via Carolina) 21st = 800 a difference of 225. sorry for the long written explanation but I just wanted to be clear so y'all understood this trade down by Texans with a talent like Moreno on the board.

what the heck lets see how that changes things for the Texans & would you be in favor of such a deal? in essence the Texans would now have a total of a pick in every round (7) + 1 extra 3rd & 2 extra 4th (the other aquired from the Vikings for Sage). unless my math is off thats 10 draft picks

For kicks here is a sample what could be -

1st. RD. #21 Texans select - (via Phi./Car.) Darius Butler, CB Connecticut 5-11 183
my top rated cover corner in the draft, speed & athleic moves translate to the next level. would have to select him here as rumors fly that the Dolphins (#25) Ravens (#26) both are interested.
2nd. RD. #46 Texans select - Clint Sintim, OLB Virginia 6-3 256
stand up elephant linebacker, can come in blitz packages or drop into coverage, good character hard worker who brings a physical presence (would take English but project him off the board here).
3rd. RD. #77 Texans select - Rashad Jennings, RB Liberty 6-1 231
Power-back with good feet to complement Steve Slaton. also looks good receiving ball in space using soft hands & ability to run after catch.
3rd. RD. #85 Texans select - (via Phi.) Jonathan Luigs, OC Arkansas 6-4 301
the last of a really solid group ready to start as a rookie. strong @ the point of attack, uses good base for leverage with excellent hand placement to redirect tackles. question early if footwork good enough for ZBS but think Gibbs would easily develop him into the Texans future starting center for the next 10 years.
4th. RD. #108 Texans select - Lawrence Sidbury, Jr. DE Richmond 6-3 266
developmental proto-typical 4-3 DE with long arms & overall athletic ability.
4th. RD. #114 Texans select - (via Min.) Jonathan Casillas, OLB Wisconsin 6-1 228
WLB back-up to Adibi, very similar player coming off injury & only reason still available excellent in prusuit & coverage.
4th. RD. #117 Texans select - (via Phi.) Brandon Tate, WR/KR North Carolina 6-0 183
playmaker similar to Jacoby w/better hands. another prospect who falls coming off injury. love his big play ability can run good routes.
