Default My New Mock Draft

I really struggled with the Texans selection and I had to change my mock up three different times after I received info on certain players and/or teams, but I'm pretty happy with the results of this one.

I did find out that there is more than one team who likes S. Weatherspoon more than Rolando McClain and Kansas City at 5 could be the trade up spot. I also expect the Giants at 15 to be a trade up spot as well as I think they will try and move back.

Good on ya LZ, just say no to Mathews in the first.

I'll be happy if we get a chance at Wilson at 20.

I think your right about Weatherspoon too, I think there are some that see the athletic limitations of McClain as pigeon holing him as a 3-4 only ILB.

Actually, a couple of teams I spoke with today were really questioning his body type and toughness. They said when they saw him at the combine he had a ridiculously smooth body and wasn't cut up or athletic looking at all for his size. That can be a big red flag for some teams.

Are you talking Wilson here? Maybe McCourty or Kareem Jackson would be a better fit?

Ok Do you think Wilson a better fit for the Texans than McCourty or Jackson?

I think that Jackson may be the best fit for the Texans because of the school and the experience.

The classic debate over which tape is important. The measuring tape or the video tape.

BTW I believe we are talking about McClain's body.

I prefer Matthews, but like Wilson as well. With that said, I am assuming your mock and the whispers that you hear are two different things, but who do you expect us to target at 50 for RB - Best, Tate or Gerhart - should this scenario not play out?

In his mock, Gerhart is already gone... so I figure he might be thinking we are down to Tate or Best.... maybe Dwyer?

Well, he's already got Gerhardt gone at 32. So. I think he's out.

Did my qualifier not come through in my statement? EDIT: It may have helped if I included the word not. Thanks.

It really didn't.

I read this through 4-5 times trying to figure out what qualifier you were talking about. And then I saw it. But from the way that was written, I really didn't divorce what you were asking from LZ's mock as it stood.

Lance, what kind of chance does Wilson have to be an immediate upgrade over what Dunta gave us last year?

Out of those three, I would say Tate and Gerhardt with Hardesty definitely a possibility as well although his injuries are a big concern to me.

Lance you are the first guy besides me that has mocked Gerhart in first. I really like him but most say 3rd or later. Rmartin65 and I have him in 2nd. Also, WIlson is a great pick @#20. Do you address the RB in 2nd or later?
