Default rmartin65's Texans Mock Draft Version 1.0

Ok, here it goes. Please critique

2009 Texans Mock Draft
1) Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama
I know, another D Lineman? However, Cody is the run-stuffer the Texans need, and will occupy at least 2 blockers. Stamina is a concern (at 365, of course) but he has the makings of an anchor for the line. Will help Okoye rush the passer.

2) Auston English, DE, Oklahoma
Yet another DL? Yes, English will be the pass rusher this team needs, and is none to shabby against the run. Imagine a DL of: Mario-Okoye-Cody-English

3) Brandon Carter, G, Texas Tech
Not ideal for the zone scheme, but it does not really look like the Texans run that anyway. Carter will bring an attitude to the line.

4) Bruce Johnson, CB, Miami
Too long to wait for a corner, but Johnson has good athleticism. The improved pass rush hopefully justifies waiting until the 4th round for secondary help.

5) A.Q. Shipley, C, Penn State
Hopefully a diamond in the rough. Very solid player

6) Lee Robinson, OLB, Alcorn State
Too long to wait for OLB help, but again I am banking on the improved DL. Robinson is a minor project, but athleticism and production cannot be denied.

7) Tyler Roehl, HB, North Dakota State
Hear me out, Roehl can play on special teams, and backup the FB spot and RB spot. He is a multi-purpose guy that can benefit the team.

And what the heck, top 5 free agents:
1) Brian Toal, OLB, Boston College
Talented player, just always seems to be injured.

2) Jason Boltus, QB, Hartwick
Project QB puts up insane stats

3) Javorris Jackson, FS, Savannah State
Big FS with range and playmaking ability

4) Tony Dixon, RB, Kentucky
Can never have to many runningbacks

5) Julius Pruitt, WR, Ouachita Baptist
Extremely talented, raw receiver.

Would love to pick up Toal after the draft and see what he can do.

Cody is an absolute beast

I've rather see Selvie or Cushing in the English spot though

I'd take Cody in a heartbeat .... that guy is exactly what the Texans defense needs .... He's an underclassman (soph) , I wonder if he declares ?!? Probably a sure fire top 5 pick if he does.

Selvie and Cushing I think will be gone before the Texans make a second selection. Probably both gone in the latter thrid of the first round.

Growing attention and NFL Draft hype hasn't swayed Alabama nose tackle Terrence Cody from his plans for 2009. "I still have my mind made up," Cody said Monday. "Unless something really comes up, I still have my mind made up on coming back for next year." Cody, a 365-pound junior college signee from Mississippi Gulf Coast Com munity College, with the nickname "Mount Cody," has been a sensation among fans during his first season at Alabama. - Alabama Press-Register
like Cody too but would really have to be convinced his weight is not an issue.

English looks like a natural 3-4 OLB.

Carter does not fit a ZBS.

I don't know? some interesting ideas but are they coming out? do they fit?

English is supposedly 6'3" 255 lbs. That may be a little small, but it should be ok.

I know Carter does not fit the ZBS but I still feel that the line needs an attitude, and he is a beast. Tech's line is outstanding, and I really dont see alot of the ZBS here in Houston.
