In my first mock for 2013
I have the Texans taking Kyle Long in round two - he can play either goard spot and right tackle. If Brooks and Jones can man the guard positions , Long would probably send Newton to a backup spot.
Getting rid of Wade Smith would also save the team about $3m twards next years cap with about $750k in dead money.
