Default Ourlads' 2005 Mock Draft . . (are you kidding me?)

When I saw this mock draft, I thought of what someone else said. It went something like, "Jeez, I think I could come up with one better than that."

They have the Texans taking Shaun Cody with the 13th pick, when Derrick Johnson is still on the board. The Panthers are taking Elton Brown right after us, the Cowboys are picking Luis Castillo with the 20th, and Eagles are picking Eric Shelton with the 31st. And CBs Pac-Man Jones and Justin Miller not even taken in the 1st. I could go on and on . . like the Chargers, just ahead of us taking Mark Clayton over Mike Williams.

About the only thing I do agree with, is the 49ers taking Alex Smith with the 1st. (the QB, not the TE)

Here is NFL Draft Showcase's 3 round mock:

13.TEXANS Justin Miller, CB, Clemson
47.TEXANS Mike Patterson, DT, USC
73.TEXANS Brodney Pool, FS, Oklahoma
78.TEXANS Lance Mitchell, ILB, Oklahoma

I would ditch the Pool pick and from the folks available in this hypothetical pick up Chris Spencer C/G:

Strengths: Has good size...A very good athlete...Excellent quickness...Is extremely strong...Versatile and has experience at both guard spots as well as center...Smart and makes all the line calls...Still improving and has a lot of upside.
Weaknesses: Doesn't have a ton of starting experience...Has only played center for one full season with the Rebels...Will need to coaching and development to work on mastering the nuances of the position.
Notes: Was a top prospect coming out of the prep ranks...Should rank among the top centers available due to his size, athleticism and potential.

Ourlads is generally very good from year to year and have pretty astute player evaluations. That said, Cody doesn't get much love from me. He could be better than I think though.

I'm not sure if it's an issue of his skills (or perceived lack of talent)...he is a DE/DT tweener. The issue is if you want to play him as an undersized interior defender and maybe try to beef him up then he may lose some of his athleticism or do you have him as a DE that lacks the outside rush skill due to his size.

At the end of the day S. Cody is a pretty good football player that will find a home in the NFL...he's just probably not what the Texans are needing right now.

He is kind of a Hovan-tweener. He isn't real big at the point of attack and he isn't as fast as you need in an end rusher. I haven't seen him play enough to get a better feel for him.

I also like this draft, although I can see other people going if an OL isn't picked on the 1st day.

Some scouts are a little down on DJ, I'm not sure why. It may be that he's not great when the plays right at him. But his best position is weak side OLB in a 43, so he'll be playing almost 5 yards behind the line a lot, anyway. Just can't see so many defense starved teams passing Johnson up.


This mock was by longtime internet draft guru Brian DeLucia. Take it for what it's worth, probably no better or worse than you & I can come up with at this point.
