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
I think this draft will follow last one in no takers for a trade down scenario. Don't know your guys but some thoughts; if Slaton and Moats keep fumbling under control (Moats has a history of TO also) why would Texans use a 2 for same type RB? I just do not see it. If that was there thoughts, I'd rather use the 1st on CJ Spiller as I see him falling a bit even if he remains in Heisman contention. Also, if OD is not on team and you just might be right do we wait until 6th? I am still out on Dreesen and Casey. TE plays a huge role in this offense and I could see a higher pick for a TE who can catch and block.
