Default BADBOY's 2011 pre-season mock

I am predicting Texans are 11-5 and picking at #25.

QB: what is there for us to look at that is more than a project? Locker, Luck, Ponder and Devlin will probably all be gone by our 2nd. For now, I think Mallett does not come out. As stated before I will be watching Enderle but he is coming off a shoulder injury and has an avg arm anyway. I'm becoming more concerned with Orlovsky daily.

Center: see the need but just can not see Kubes giving up on Myers without a super stud rookie center ready to step in. I think Pouncey is gone by our 1st and O'Dowd is my leading candidate if he plays healthy and well this season and he should be there in first. Wisnewski interests me but the knee is ? for me. Anything else is a reach imo. So.. O'Dowd in first?

FS: I just see nothing that assures me Barber or Nolan will be our future. Wilson is steady, when he is on the field. I want a draft pick that will start no later than 2011. If this guy is there in 1st, I think I'd be all over him.
Deunta Williams, FS, North Carolina
Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2011): Top 25 Pick.
5/14/10: Deunta Williams was an All-ACC First Team member, thanks to 47 tackles, eight pass break-ups and six interceptions.

Having said that, if I could get Pouncey or O'Dowd in first and Gideon in second I'd be happy.
Blake Gideon*, FS, Texas
Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round (2011): 2.
5/14/10: Blake Gideon had 49 tackles and six interceptions to go along with his three pass break-ups in 2009.

OK here we go:

1st: Chris O'Dowd Center
2nd: Blake Gideon FS
3rd: Nathan Enderle QB
4th: Chykie Brown CB
5th:Chris Prosinski SS/FS
6th: Zach Heberer OG
7th: Ben Jacobs ILB

For those of you that think this is way too early, simply back out of thread and stroll on along. It ain't for you.

With that said my mock would be

Rd.2 Ras-I- Dqwling (after trading up)

Default Re: BADBOY's 2011 pre-season mock

nice draft


heres a quick one i made






First pick..

Allen Bailey, DE/DT, Miami
Height: 6-4. Weight: 288.
Projected 40 Time: 4.80.

Okoya is young, but he just should not have been drafted by us.i see us geting allen bailet de / dt

2nd pick

Quinton Carter, FS, Oklahoma
Height: 6-1. Weight: 193.
Projected 40 Time: 4.53.

I love to see Carter and Polard on the same team


3rd pick

Chykie Brown, CB, Texas
Height: 6-0. Weight: 187.
Projected 40 Time: 4.39

We need all the corners that we can get with Peyton in our league!

4th pick

Roy Helu, RB, Nebraska
Height: 6-0. Weight: 215.
Projected 40 Time: 4.54

i see Tate and Helu and Foster starting i hope slaton turns around ,,,

5th pick

Jake Kirkpatrick, C/G, TCU
Height: 6-3. Weight: 305.
Projected 40 Time: 5.09.

I know it kinda late to be drafting a center but this is a big kid so i would give him a shot


6th pick

Kai Forbath, K, UCLA
Height: 6-0. Weight: 192.

if rackers can rack on some points this is no need but if not i see a kicker in the draft
7th pick

Projected 40 Time: 4.70.

SIAB, I am watching your TCU center also. Good eye on your part.

Interesting that you would use a first and second on two centers or would you use Wies as a guard?

Wies would be a OG. He's a player like his uncle Steve. This draft would solidify the OL for 8-10 yrs.

Dont you think it's about time that the OL was a strength of the team?

Instead of the weakness it has been since the teams inception.

An OL of

D.Brown, Wiesnewski, O'Dowd, Caldwell, Winston for the next 10 yrs really appeals to me. How about you?

Default Re: BADBOY's 2011 pre-season mock

Gideon was more of a SS last year but was given typical FS responsibilites quite often. Because Texas is so good against the run with their front seven, both safeties can play quite deep against the pass.

This year he will be almost exclusively a FS. Christian Scott will be taking over Gideon's old position and Gideon will be moving into Earl Thomas' position (although he will not be used as a nickel corner as Thomas was).

As a college player Gideon is good. He is smart, understands his physical limitations, and plays to his strengths.

As a NFL prospect, I don't see him making the leap. And I certainly wouldn't use a second rounder on him. He cannot play SS in the NFL. He doesn't tackle well enough. And he doesn't project well to FS athletically. He did manage 6 interceptions this past season, but that was mainly due to Texas having the best pass rush in the nation.

He can make a NFL roster as a special teams guy and FS depth. But I don't see him as a starter. He just doesn't have the athletic skills to cover NFL WRs.

I'm also not high on Chykie Brown unless he becomes more consistent in his senior year. He is a guy that will look like Champ Bailey on one series and then Phillip Buchanan on the next two.

His technique and awareness are severly lacking, which causes him to make mistakes often. But he is an incredible athlete, which usually allows him to recover.

Will he be able to recover when he is chasing down a NFL WR? I don't know.

But a fourth rounder is not a bad place to try on a guy like him. If he figures it out he is a steal there.
