My current mock
I have been agonizing over my next presentation of what I think Texans should do. We now know what underclassmen are out and free agency is the next step to clarify what we might do in draft in April. Unlike most, I see Texans doing little in FA other than their own. I believe Pollard, OD, Demeco and probably Walter will be re-signed one way or the other. Pitts and Dunta are the most interesting possibilities on our roster as could effect the draft. If Pitts is healthy, I'd like him back at reasonable $. DR:bye bye but Kubes verbally supports his season. Walter did not have that great of a year but I can't get a fix on him. He's a Kubiac guy & probably depends on what offers he gets. Matt Turk. Another ? as he did very well & is older than all but Zgonnia and Moses.I think he re-signs. I think we re-sign all remaining but Grossman and Zgonnia who was cut before returning. This uncapped off season should work in our favor.
I would go strong after Richard Seymour who can play DE or DT. I don't think a move or Hampton will occur.
Round 1 #20 Toby Gerhart RB 6'1" 235 4.55 will do well @ combine & will be gone by our 2nd round. Dwyer, Spiller gone by #20 & so so on Matthews. Gerhart meets our need as a powerback and has good speed and burst. 1871 yards, 5.5 avg 27 TDs. Bowl game 135 yards 38 attempts 2 TDs with QB Luck out. Other than FS Thomas I'm not interested any other player available. There is no guarantee he will be there in 2nd so I get him now. No other avail RB comes close. He will avg 20 attempts with Slaton & Foster.
Round 2. Jon Asamoah LG Illinois 6'4" 315 5.08 ZBS
Round 3. Kyle Wilson CB Boise 5'10" 186 4.42 third best CB after Haden & Cox
Round 4. Akwasi Owusu-Ansah FS/CB/KR 6'1"205 4.48 climbing so if gone:
Robert Johnson FS Utah 6'2" 200 4.5 2008:4INTs 2009 6INTs
Round 5. Thomas Austin OG/C/T Clemson 6'3" 315 my eventual Myers replacement. Plays all O spots well. Good feet, balance & power.
Round 5 B Joe Pawelek ILB/OLB/FB Baylor 6'2" 240 2008: 128 T, 6INTs
2009: goofed off with 109 T, 1 INT 2.5 QB sacks.
Round 6. Joique Bell RB Wayne State 5'11" 225lbs 4.54 Division 2 named best over all player 2009. 2,084 yds 29 TDs 6.9 avg My "Jacoby Jones" pick. Beats out Moats or Foster.
Round 7. Best kicker available
I want to be able to recognize the difference between a "want" and a "need" and then I want to be satisfied with getting a need
