Steel B's New Mock
This Mock is keeping in mind how bad the back 7 are and the fact that the defense also doesn't have playmakers at the LB position. I'm going off the presumption that the Texans will be picking in the 10-15 range. I also want to switch to a 3-4 defense
Rd1 Brandon Harris Miami- True cover CB,Has speed but also will help set the edge. I ike him better than any CB not named P.Peterson in this draft
Rd2 Mark Herzlich B.C.- Would've been a top 10 pick before cancer. Still a very good instictive LB,who can play inside LB. His cancerous leg will be stronger next yr than it was this yr. Best work ethic in this draft.
Rd3 Mark Barron Ala.- Playmaking SS who would be a major upgrade over Pollard in coverage. Just about as good a hitter as Pollard.
Rd4 Will Hill Fla- top notch playmaker who has the speed that Wilson/Nolan are currently lacking. Play alot at Fla even though Fla.'secondary was loaded at the S position with Black and Wright at the S position. Hill is a better playmaker than Black or Wright IMHO
Rd5 Dexter Larimore OSU- Is the rock of the Buckeye defense. Consistently draws double teams, is very strong. At 6'1 315 lbs Larimore is an unmovable fire hydrant. He's flying under the radar and would be a steal at this point in the draft.IMHO
Rd6 Cecil Shorts Mt.Union- Small school guy with great speed and good hands. Shorts will be a better version of Jacoby Jones.
Rd7 Adrian Taylor DT Okla- Taylor is injury prone Knee/ankle. But he impressed me with his work ethic coming back from a dislocated ankle (ouch) to play very well this yr. Before tearing an ACL. He may have to be put on injured reserve for a yr. But he has 1st rd talent and will be well worth the wait. IMHO
