1. Jared Crick, DE/NT, Nebraska, 6042 279
For the record I think the Texans will trade down. Like keeping Schaub clean so do interior linemen keep rush Linebackers clean. Depth, rotation, versatility. High effort/motor team player, mature, clean on & off the field. First round talent coming off a torn pectoral tear which limited Senior season impacting his draft grade. Always around the ball, disruptive, causing QB hurries, fumbles, batting passes down/break-ups.
2. Bobby Massie, OT, Mississippi, 6061 316
Fluid, athletic big with light feet ability to develop into premium LT, ready to compete for starting RT position now. Everything you look for physically, has 35" arms, natural knee bender. Plays with attitude, aggressiveness.
3. Brain Quick, WR, Appalachian State, 6034 220
Premium body height, long arms 34" good size hands 9 3/4" with 34" vertical. Production improved every year becoming #1 target. Supreme special teams player, game changing blocks in key situations. Vertical deep threat to spread defenses, take pressure off Andre.
4. Ryan Broyles, WR/returner, Oklahoma, 5101 192
Could be the top player on the Texans board if available this late. Runs the entire route tree, possession slot WR with premium return skills. Better football speed than track speed, gets in & out of breaks on a dime. Has great feel for the game & gives his QB another option will continue to work until after the whistle blows.
4. Kyle Wilber, ILB/OLB, Wake Forrest, 6036 249
Can kick inside or out giving Texans versatility of player who can cover & back fill. Excellent length among group. Possess both arm length to stack & shed blocks, strong 25 bp, edge speed & productive. Great value here to cover departed DeMeco Ryans.
5. Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech, 5100 178
Never thought a player like Jayron would be here this late but recent events
Multiple sources told FOXSports.com that Hosley wrote a letter to NFL teams apologizing for the failed test.
changed my mind. Must convince NFL teams it won't happen again, if he can he would bring undeniable talent to Texan secondary already looking stacked.
6. Quentin Saulsberry, C/OG, Mississippi State, 6023 304
ZBS OL prospect. Throw him into camp & let him compete & find a roster spot giving Texans much needed depth & special teams player. A plus lead blocker in running game as well which could be used in goal line situations out of the backfield, thus eliminating need to select a FB in this draft.
7. Randy Bullock, K, Texas A&M, 5092 205
Draft the best available kicker & lets move on from the days of Rackers & Brown. Give Texans a premium, mature young man to become the leading kicker & franchise future record holder. Excellent accuracy of Rackers already close in with more leg development outside of fifty to add a weapon back into special teams.
