Default Super Mario's December Texans Mock

No trades, just straight picks at the 15th spot in each round. I am assuming we sign Nnamdi Asomugha and am using the GBND top 100 to cherry pick the top 3 rounds. After that I just pick whomever.

Round1: Taylor Mays, FS, USC. With freakish size and speed he is a prime candidate to get our secondary up to par.

Round2: Everette Bown, DE, Florida State. I know, I know, you think he will be gone first round. But at this point GBND thinks he is a 2nd rounder. But what a steal if he fell here.

Round3: Max Unger, OC, Oregon. At 6'5" and 300 LBS he has the size to hold up the point of attack, and is not so heavy that he cannot get to the 2nd level.

Round4: Rashad Jennings, RB, Liberty. The Giants took a chance on Brandon Jacobs and it worked out pretty well.

Round5: Roy Miller, DT, Texas. Solid player who dominated the LOS this year. A big reason that Texas' D was still great when Orakpo went out. Should eventually be a 3 round pick.

Round6: Cedrick Dockery, OG, Texas. Derrick is a monster and his brother is pretty good too.

Round7: John Parker Wilson, QB, Alabama. Shorter than you would like, but a 3 year starter in the SEC. Just a backup for life, but thats normally what you get in round 5-7, unless you strike gold.

Yes, I am a longhorn fan, and feel more comfortable picking a couple players I know about. Let me know what you think.

Also, yes, players will rise and fall in the draft, but right now this is where I see them.

I'd be thrilled with an offseason like that. BUT... highly doubtful we get Asomugha, Mays is still a possibility in the 1st but New Orleans and Denver pick in front of us, I highly doubt Brown is at our spot in the 2nd round (don't care what GBN says) plus he's more of a 3-4 OLB. Rest of the draft with Jennings, Unger, etc. I would be pleased with.

Plus if you go by exactly where GBN has their players ranked (not projected), you have to account for the juniors that won't declare (like Tebow?) so Brown wouldn't be available on that basis.

I dunno, but Mathis @ Indy plays in the 4-3 and he's < 250 & Freeney isn't that much bigger.
We all know that because of Marios size he's really a strong-side guy which should give us the flexibility (and the luxury) to use a smaller guy in the 250-260 range at weakside DE ?

I'd be hesitant taking a failry one-deminsional guy early in the draft... the one big exception is Pass Rusher and that's what this guy is. He's not that stout against the run and I think we'd see MJD/Taylor, CJ/White and Addai running all over us to that side. With all that said, he might be the best pass rusher in the draft and that's something we could really really use.

That's a cool draft but I think you have to get an outside linebacker at some point.

Good point. Are you wanting to replace a starter, or just for depth?

As an offensive guy I don't know if I could pass up having Jeremy Macllin next to AJ for years to come.

Hopefully Andre Smith will slide down after his suspension and cause so good guys to fall with him

Frail. Injured. Poor routes. Average hands. Mizzou education (big knock in my books). Short. At best he's Devin Hester as a WR, and I mean that he will take 4 years or so to develop as a #2 WR. Until then, you have a first round return man. Think of it like Reggie Bush, just not anywhere near as good of a WR. It's funny, Maclin might be a better RB and Bush is a better WR. Why would you spend a first round pick on a slightly more talented/developed Jacoby Jones. Why would you spend first round money on another WR. That type of money means he has to see the field.

I don't think this is a possible draft, and here is why with a few quick notes. First, you don't get to cherry pick. That is done the day after. Teams can't cherry pick. Mays would be a good pick. Brown would be a good pick at that range, though he will be a 3-4 OLB. Brown is, by all indications, going to go higher than that. Pretty much everyone else you have listed will go a round or so earlier than you have down. Also, Wilson will go higher than Round 7. He's a proven SEC QB from a successful program with a great coach.

I guess it just irks me that you call this a Texans mock. Call it a wish list, or a dream draft, or a cherry pickers fantasy. It kind of demeans what some of us actually try to do every year. It demeans what I hope to do for a living.

It's cool. I was stressing out last night getting some last minute stuff before my girlfriend flies in today. All is well. Carry on.
