Default The Pencil Neck's First Ever Texan's Mock

OK. So, I decided what the hell... while I'm waiting for the wife to get ready...

15 - Brian Cushing, OLB
I just don't see anyone else at this spot. I hope we're able to trade down. Cushing's injury history scares me.

46 - Ziggy Hood, DT
We need an upgrade in the middle of the line.

77 - Lawrence Sidbury, DE/Rusher
For passing situations.

108 - Curtis Taylor, FS
Initially for depth, but eventually to take over for Eugene Wilson.

118 - Kraig Urbik, G
I'm basing this on the GBN and Draftnick draft boards. And according to them, he could be here at this point.

144 - Glen Coffee, RB
RB depth.

175 - Quan Cosby, WR
Could improve our WR corps. At least give him a chance.

206 - Jordan Scott, RB
Nuff said.

Urbik and Coffee could be gone by those spots but according to the big boards I was using, it's not totally unreasonable.

I don't know quite yet how to rate those guys.
But Coffee at 144 and I think we get a steal.

Well, I was watching Path to the Draft, and something that Mayock said made me re-evaluate some things. How about this:

15 - Robert Ayers, DE. According to Mayock, this kid is really good and can be our rusher. Mayock has him rated 12. Although I wasn't expecting us to draft DE in the first round with the Smith signing, if this guy is that highly rated, I'd love taking him in this position more than I like taking the LB's.

46 - Ziggy Hood, DT. I had a choice here between Hood and Rashad Johnson and I was very much tempted to go Johnson. But I'm going to try to fix our DL once and for all.

77 - Andre Brown, RB. I almost went Sherrod Martin here. But I'm worried about picking up the RB I want later in the draft so I pull the trigger on Slaton's Complement here.

108. Curtis Taylor, FS. Eugene Wilson's eventual successor. I was also considering Trevor Canfield, G, to strengthen the interior line.

118. Cornelius Lewis, G. Has some technique issues and is very raw. I read one report that said he should be gone by the 2nd-3rd round but no one else has him rated that high. Should take Brisiel's spot and could start for us. Could be Urbik if he drops.

144. Jarret Dillard, WR - Watch out JJ.

175. Chip Harris, SS. Also thought about T.J. Lange, G. Dropped Quan Cosby from this spot because I changed 144 to Dillard.

206. Jordan Scott, RB. Nuff said.

I like your first mock better. Cushing, Hood & Sidbury would be a better first three rounds for the Texans. I don't really have a problem with drafting Ayers @ 15 but first rounders are supposed to start. Do you start him ahead of Smith who the Texans just paid a ton of cash to? Sidbury in the 3rd would be a better pick since he won't be expected to start right away, and would be good depth at DE.

My problem with Cushing is his injury history. We're going to end up with Adibi, Diles, and Cushing if we go that way and there's a good possibility they all end up injured and off the field. Cushing is also considered an LB that's going to have to pulled out in passing situations. He was pulled in passing situations at USC so you've got to expect he comes off the field on passing downs in the NFL.

And although I'd prefer an every down starter with the 15th pick, Ayers could be the best value at that pick because he may give us the most production. And when you consider, that teams can spend up to 50% of the time in some sort of pass defense, that means that Ayers could see the field more than Cushing.

It was a tough change but I was trying to get outside the box.

This version of the mock also gives us a better complement to Slaton, I think.
