Badboy's end of season mock
First, yucky let down by our team. If we are honest, we got the w-l record that most of us thought but the play...well there's the rub. Second, Schaub is not going anywhere until after 2013 due to his cap hit. Yates with two seasons behind him probably would not be beaten out by any of the QBs available to us. Owner after THE loss basically said Schaub can take us to Super Bowl. I know, me neither, but he signs off on deals. Most of the following is what I've mocked for some time; combine may change it some.
I am stating here there will be a trade that gives us another second round; either down from #27 or up. That will not be addressed here.
1. WR Terrance Williams 6'2" 205 sub 4.5 Baylor 97-1832 yds @ 18.9. Quick off line and uses body control on sidelines and RZ. Tracks ball well & adjusts to aid scrambling QB. Starts WR2 game one and eventually replaces AJ. Franchise type player.
2. OT Menelik Watson 6'6" 320 FSU surprised many including me by coming out; TBH was not even on my board. He has only played 20 games including 8 in JC. Solid player and possible 10 year guy. Needs a year to develop but where better than Texans?
3A NT Brandon Williams 6'3" 325 Missouri Southern State 68 T with 16.5 for loss. 8.5 sacks +8 QB hurries + 2 break ups+ 5 forced fumbles. Cody gone and should beat out Mitchell quickly.
3B ILB Kiko Alonzo 6'3" 242 Oregon 75 T + 12 for loss + 4 INTs + 2 forced fumbles
4. CB/S Darrius Slay 6'1" 190 4.37 5 INTs 39 " vertical Miss St. Can play either position but I have him at safety.
5A. OLB Travis Long (knee) 6'4" 245 Wash St.
5B. TE Michael Williams 6'5" 272 Alabama tremendous blocker who can line up at OT in "strong" set. Soft hands who replaces Casey. A FB will be UDFA if Clutts cannot do it.
5C. C/OG Mario Benavidez 6'4" 304 Louisville rated a 5th best center and could play OG ala Ben Jones.
6. RB Cierre Woods 6'1" 215 4.48 ND replaces Tate and explodes in Texans system.
7A. OLB Quanterus Smith (knee) 6'5" 248 Western Kentucky with 12.5 sacks before injury.
7B. DT Kapron Lewis-Moore 6'4" 306 last game ACL injury.
I can see a trade into high second round to select Alec Ogletree ILB
