I'd love to break character for this team and draft for offense, and DHB would be a great pick for all the obvious reasons... I also have to say that I'm tempted to take Aaron Maybin here, but in the end - not only does the desperation for a cornerback win the battle - but I got the guy I wanted (unless Vontae would have continued to slide).

With the 26th pick in the 2009 Texans Talk Member Mock Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select:

Alphonso Smith CB Wake Forest


Yeah, he's undersized - but this guy's a born winner, fierce competitor, and a playmaker. His attitude and tenacity are perfect fits for that nasty Baltimore defense... assuming they can keep their defensive "culture" going after the loss of Rex Ryan.
Great pick. I really like this kid.
