Default Texian's Mid Season Mock Draft

Currently Texans projected to pick in the #7-#12 Vicinity.

At the end of the 2013 season Bob McNair fires Kubiak and Smith.

Hires Eric Decosta as GM who hires HC.

Mid Season Mock

Rd 1. C. J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama, 6021, 232 (up grades OLB, Reed moves to ILB)
Rd 2. Trent Murphy, DE, Stanford, 6055, 261 (replaces Ninja)
Rd 3. A. J. McCarron, QB, Alabama, 6032, 214 (replaces Schaub)
Rd 4. JaWuan James, OT, Tennessee, 6056, 318 (replaces Newton)
Rd 5. Marcus Williams CB, N. Dakota St., 5110, 197 (upgrades secondary)
Rd 6. Storm Johnson, RB, Cent. Florida, 6001, 218 (replaces Tate)
Rd 7. Trey Hopkins, OG, Texas, 6034, 302 (replaces Smith)

Conventional Wisdom is a rookie QB needs 20 starts in the NFL before you truly know what you have. 2014 gives Texans and Keenum his 20 starts. Schaub is released for cap reasons. McCarron is brought in as a backup and also a chance to be a starter. If all fails Texans go all in for a Franchise QB in 2015. At this time I do expect most underclassman QB to return to school. I expect only 1 or 2 to come out. If that happens 2015 will be a better year for QBs than 2014.

Texans have lost there pass rush, this is improved with Mosley and Murphy. Replaces Ninja who becomes a FA and cap casualty and upgrades OLB.

Default Re: Texian's Mid Season Mock Draft

I have to revise my mid season mock. Last night Trent Murphy had a JJ Watt kind of game. Not only will Murphy be a 1st rd pick he could also now become a top 10 pick. For the time being I will switch Murphy and Mosley.

Rd 1. Trent Murphy, DE, Stanford, 6055, 261 (replaces Ninja)
Rd 2. C. J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama, 6021, 232 (up grades OLB, Reed moves to ILB)
Rd 3. A. J. McCarron, QB, Alabama, 6032, 214 (replaces Schaub)
Rd 4. JaWuan James, OT, Tennessee, 6056, 318 (replaces Newton)
Rd 5. Marcus Williams CB, N. Dakota St., 5110, 197 (upgrades secondary)
Rd 6. Storm Johnson, RB, Cent. Florida, 6001, 218 (replaces Tate)
Rd 7. Trey Hopkins, OG, Texas, 6034, 302 (replaces Smith)

Murphy better put on at least 25 lbs to play a 5 . As far as Mosley and McCarron go , Bama high picks aren't panning out so well . Unless of course they go to 4-3 , then Murphy may play opposite of JJ .

Murphy is about the same size as JJ Watt and bigger than Ninja.

Trent Murphy is 6055 and weighs 290 lbs. The 261 lbs that you often see listed in his bio is what Murph weighed when he arrived at Stanford. Last night announcers saying he was 290. Trent played in a 4 man front with his hand in the dirt the whole game. Come Feb I would bet that Trent Murphy will closer to 209 than 260. Physically he's a JJ Watt clone.

Give me Rd.1 Nix Rd.2 Skov, this improves the middle of the Texans defense and Nix will require double teams. That will help take pressure off of Watt.

BTW, the Texans have the 3rd worst defense in the NFL at stopping the run between the tackles.

Nix can become this yrs Loutelliuli. (SP?)

Love the rest of the mock and would trade up to pick James. Not familiar with Williams.
