Default Re: Hottoddie's 6 Scenario Mock Drafts

I guess it was too long to put in just one post. Here's the rest.

Scenario #5 This is my second trade down mock involving St Louis. In this scenario, St. Louis decides to take Suh with the 1st pick & trade back up into the first to take Colt McCoy. I believe Maddict5 has already proposed a similar trade down scenario. In this trade, we send our 1st (#20) & our 6th (#187) to St. Louis in exchange for their 2nd (#33), 3rd (#65), & 5th (#132) round picks. All 3 of their picks are the first pick in that round & (+22) points in our favor.

2a) Brian Price (DT) - Very strong & quick enough to command double teams. Has a burst off the line at the snap & can penetrate into the backfield. Is immovable off the line & has a great array of moves in rushing the passer as well as a solid bull rush. Poor conditioning & tires easily.
2b) Morgan Burnett (FS) - I like Burnett because he's got great size, speed & athleticism. He's a ballhawk (14 int's in 2 years) & he gives the Texans flexibility because he can play both FS & SS.
3a) Jonathan Dwyer (RB) - In my opinion, Dwyer is the RB the Texans want out of this draft. Hes big, strong, athletic, & has just enough break away speed to rip off some long runs. Hes got good vision & the ability to make one cut & hit the hole. Hes only been a starter for 2 years, so hes got a lot of tread left on his tires. Hes got good ball control & demonstrated excellent hands at catching the ball out of the backfield during his Pro Day. He has never missed a game due to injury.
3b) Matt Tennant (C) Good lateral agility & explosiveness. Able to play both center & guard. Plays with a nasty attitude. Good foot work with ability to get to the second level & adjust to a moving target. Hes very durable, having played in 41 consecutive games. He comes from a school (Boston College) thats known for producing NFL caliber linemen.
4th) Donovan Warren (CB/FS) - Warren is flying under the radar & would be a steal in the 4th round. Imo, he's dropped because he had a bad 40 at the combine & his pro day. Warren is a very instinctive player with great anticipation. That alone will shave some time off his 40 time under actual game conditions. Hes great against the run, very athletic & physical. He can also play safety. A couple of draft sites are comparing his style of play to Dunta Robinson.
5a) Jamar Wall (CB) - Instinctive player that can play both man & zone coverages equally well. Sticks to his man like glue all over the field. Solid tackler & plays the run well. Has a great vertical (40.5) & uses it to defeat larger WRs in the endzone. Is a strong special teams player & return man.
5b) Joique Bell (RB) - Very productive runner that is very strong & patient. Should be able to thrive in the ZBS. Wont quit fighting for the extra yard.
6b) David Gettis (WR) 63 217lbs. & ran a 4.39 40 at his Pro Day. Very good hands with good body control to make the acrobatic catches & amazing acceleration for a player of his size. He does catch a lot of balls against his chest rather than catching with his hands alone. He might make a nice compliment to AJ on the opposite side.
7th) Stevenson Sylvester (OLB) Very athletic, quick, & productive. Has a great burst to get to the QB on blitzes, but doesnt possess any blitz technique. Has good change of direction abilities. Is a work in progress & not very instinctive. Primarily relies on speed & athleticism to make plays. Will need a lot of coaching up, but he does have speed & you cant coach speed. Should be a huge asset to special teams early on.


Scenario #6 This is the I didnt see that one coming. Mock. Cody doesnt fit the mold of our previous DTs, but what if the Texans decided to fix the run defense once & for all?

1st) Terrence Cody (DT) Massive man child. Commands a double team on every play. Great at stuffing the run & collapsing the pocket. Tires easily & is considered a 2 down player at this point. The reason the Texans might do this is, they can play him on 1st & 2nd downs & then pull him, slide Smith over to DT & insert Barwin at DE on obvious passing downs. If he can do what hes best at on the 1st & 2nd downs, we should have our opponents in 3rd & long quite a bit next season. With proper nutrition & NFL strength & conditioning coaches, Cody could turn into an unstoppable force. Or, not.
2nd) Jonathan Dwyer (RB) - In my opinion, Dwyer is the RB the Texans want out of this draft. Hes big, strong, athletic, & has just enough break away speed to rip off some long runs. Hes got good vision & the ability to make one cut & hit the hole. Hes only been a starter for 2 years, so hes got a lot of tread left on his tires. Hes got good ball control & demonstrated excellent hands at catching the ball out of the backfield during his Pro Day. He has never missed a game due to injury.
