Default Doppelgelganger1's December Mock

There is a lot to like with the offense. There is a lot to not like with the Defense. I think a switch to a 3-4 would be one way to address the major concerns on this team. In FA, we 3-4 DE Shaun Ellis. The Jets have too many players to sign and we could get him.

We have a ton of holes on D, so instead of trying to address all, I decided to look at one part and make it as good as possible. I have the Texans picking around 15 each level.

1. Von Miller: Texas A&M, 3-4 OLB, our Elvis Dumervill, would play opposite Barwin/Cush and provide relentless pass rushing and good enough coverage.

2. Jerrell Powe, NT, Ole Miss, new NT. He is a classic occupy multiple blockers NT who could free up our DE and OLB to make plays.

3. Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado. A big, tall, fast CB who could play man. He is tall so tall receivers would not easily be able to outjump him and he has enough speed to keep up.

4. Jeron Johnson, SS, Boise State. Pollard is a hit machine. We need someone who can cover, hit, and tackle. JJ is far better to Pollard in 2 of those 3 areas and thats what we need.

5. Mario Harvey. The other Mario. If we slide to a 3-4, who will play beside Meco? Mario can. He can be the Takeo Spikes to Meco's Patrick Willis.

6. Anthony Gray, NT, Southern Miss, another NT. He can backup Powe or even come in on double NT D sets. I have seen the Ravens or even the Steelers use double NT sets on some plays. Another NT would give the DE's a rest and give offenses another wrinkle to think about

7. Derrell Smith, DE/OLB, Syracuse, another rusher to come in and put pressure on the opposing QB. In the NFL, there are very few successful teams who can play pass defense without constant pressure. Bring in another OLB and now you have at least 4 OLB (along with Ellis and Mario at DE) who can bring some pressure.


This is what the team would look like.

........Williams............Powe..............Elli s

...Von Miller/Smith.....Harvey.....Ryans.......Barwin/Cush


........Jackson.......Johnson.......Nolan......Smi th

In this lineup you can bring Cush up next to Williams or Ellis in some packages and have him rush or drop into coverage ala Elephant style.

That would be a great draft if we were going to the 3-4. Maybe we will. I wouldnt mind seeing a punter in here. And maaaaaybe a WR. But other than that, I like it.

You bet. I love the NFL draft and mocks becuase its the one time as a fan you can have some feeling of control over your team. Many times we as a fan base complain about various picks. The Mocks allow us fans to put up or shut up! Instead of being critical we can show who we WOULD have drafted and then talk trash about the organization for not agreeing with our pick.

My favorite is when I had the Texans taking a rising CB from Pitt or a uber LB from Missisippi rather than a young DT from Louisville. Many people ragged on me and tole me how I was wasting the pick by over-drafting the CB or taking the uber LB. I reasoned you can never have enough good CBs and this uber LB can play Mike and Meco can play OLB and we would have two outstanding LBs. Maybe we could even go 3-4 and have both play in the middle. Alas, I was laughed at and told I "didn't get it" by the fans as they slurped the FO Koolaid. I wanted the DT to live up to his position, but I didn't think he would. That DT was Amobi Okoye.

The uber LB was this guy:

The rising CB was this guy:

Thanks. I thought about another WR, but I thought if the Defense can be rehauled into a 3-4 and we can move from say 32 in Defense to 20, with our offense we could be a playoff squad.
