I threw Tyrann Mathieu into the mock because one: he is insane value this late (I fully expect another team to select him somewhere in the 3rd rd.). two: I agree that CB is a bigger need than most think & have mocked one in the first round a couple weeks ago (Xavier Rhodes). three we needed to have this discussion about Tyrann Mathieu, the kind of player Texans need but also the type of player Texans avoid. four: if Texans pass chances are another team, possibly in the same division, does not so have a great game day when Texans face that team over the next several years
I meant John Jenkins, the guy you mocked 1st round to the Texans. Also, my point about CBs was necessarily geared against Mathieu...more that one pick (on a troubled guy no less) for the secondary isn't going to turn the tide to hold up against the Brady's, Brees's, Manning's and Rodger's of the world.
My response mock/Dec. Re-do
1- David Amerson, CB, NC State
Excellent size and ballhawking skill.
2- TJ McDonald, FS, USC
Productive college career, NFL bloodlines.
3a- Alvin Bailey, OG, Arkansas
Large and mobile blocker that should force the issue on either side of Myers.
3b- Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern St
Space eating run plugger this D desperately needs.
4- Kiko Alonso, LB, Oregon
LBer with some pass coverage skills.
5- Manase Foketi, OT, ???
Big man with ability, should be able to develop him into a fine RT.
6- Theo Riddick, RB, Notre Dame
Possible diamond-in-the-rough RB. 6th round after all...
7- Allen, P
Still taking the P last.
