Depends on underclassman who declare? right now I'm not sold on this Senior Class as a whole alone just not that deep to get an impact player, at least right away where the Texans select. So with that in mind I expect Rick Smith to be shopping around for trade down options- you know I keep saying this every year it could be New England they always seem to stockpile picks, this year in fact besides their own they have two extra 2nd rd. picks (Jacksonville & Tennessee). Both those should be very early in the 2nd if a player they covet is still on the board when the Texans pick then I would trade that pick two for one, so my mock draft would have not have a 1st rd. pick but three 2nd rounders
2a. Kareem Jackson, 5-11 192 CB Alabama (Jr.) could play both FS or CB.
2b. Noel Devine, 5-8 176 RB/WR West Virginia (Jr.) teammate of Steve Slaton explosive offensive playmaker like a Percy Harvin or DeSean Jackson.
2c. A.J. Edds, 6-4 244 OLB Iowa (Sr.) premier 4-3 weakside linebacker a coverage specialist who compliments DeMeco & Brian Cushing.
3. J.D. Walton, 6-3 305 C Baylor (Sr.) top notch Center to add inside toughness
4. Mike Neal, 6-3 302 DT Purdue (Sr.) developmental specimen to add to rotation.
5. Josh Pinkard, 6-1 215 FS USC (Sr.) better in coverage than Mays & more diciplined.
6a. (aquired via Travis Johnson) Tony Moeaki, 6-3 252 TE Iowa (Sr.) excellent hands, blocking technique question is will Owen Daniels be re-signed after torn acl?
6b. Lonyae Miller, 5-11 220 RB Fresno State (Sr.) ZBS powerback
7. Josh Hull, 6-3 240 ILB Penn State (another Diles) very productive/instinctive, low cost low maintenance
