Fox Sports 7 Round Mock Draft
15. Houston — Clay Matthews, LB, USC, Senior: Clay's kid and Bruce's nephew can play a bit of football, too. A starter for only one year at USC, Matthews was a breakout performer during his senior season, rose to the top at the combine and was all the buzz at the USC Pro Day. Outside linebacker is an area of need for the Texans, and the Matthews name is as good as gold in the city of Houston. Fifteenth overall may be a little early, but this is a perfect match.
We pass on Malcolm Jenkins!?!?
16. San Diego — Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State, Senior: In a draft without an abundance of top-flight defensive backs, Jenkins is the top CB. His 40 speed isn't up there with 2008 first-rounders Leodis McKelvin or Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but he's played against tougher competition than either of those young men did over the course of their college careers. The Chargers have gone with defensive backfield picks in recent history — Antoine Cason, Antonio Cromartie, Eric Weddle — but still seem unsettled at the position. If none of the top four offensive tackles are on the board, look for them to go with Jenkins, who can likely play safety or corner.
46. Houston — Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois, Junior: If Davis slips all the way to here, it'd be a major shocker for the talking heads. But with a relatively underwhelming class of cornerback prospects, this is actually quite possible. Vernon's brother could start right away in Houston.
77. Houston — Andy Levitre, G, Oregon State, Senior
112. Houston — Nic Harris, S/LB, Oklahoma, Senior
122. Houston — Rashad Jennings, RB, Liberty, Senior
152. Houston — Cary Harris, CB, USC, Senior
188. Houston — Bruce Johnson, CB, Miami, Senior
223. Houston — Drew Willy, QB, Buffalo, Senior
They got Maybin at #11 to Buffalo, Ayers at #13 to Washington, Cushing at #14 to NO, Beatty at #22 to Minnesota, Pettigrew at #24 to Atlanta, Everette Brown at #25 to Miami.
I really hope we don't pass up on Jenkins if we drops to us....
