Default Week 14 Texan Mock

First Round: Josh Chapman, Alabama, NT/NG 6007 316

Dominant, seasoned, another Sabin influenced defensive prospect who adds more talent to front line already playing @ a high level. This is what Championship teams do, they retool & get stronger in the trenches. Have him graded as early second but by time the draft rolls around his stock could rise as 3-4 teams look to enforce middle with smaller, high motor, smart, well coached athletes.

Second Round: Jeff Fuller, Texas A&M, WR 6035 225

Texan WR's play well together, even without big target, stud #1 WR Andre Johnson yet still need another star added to arsenal. Down year for entire Aggie program including firing on former Texan assistant head coach Mike Sherman. Has the same size as Dwight Jones who I had projected in the first round for Texans last week, played through assorted injurys still averaged almost 60 yards per game with 11.3 avg. per catch & 5 TD's. Expected bigger things from Jeff after last season, when he collected 72 receptions, 82 yards per game, 14.81 yards per catch & 12 TD's. Over course of four years @ Texas A&M Fuller caught almost 3,000 yards (2973) 226 receptions & 33 TD's.

Third Round: Phillip Blake, Baylor, Center/OG 6024 320

Blame RG3 if you want but chances are Phillip Blakes stock is also soaring, unlike RG3 it's a given Blake will enter the 2012 NFL draft because he is a senior. Realistic draft grade if Texans want to cover/fill two positions in one. Blake has excellent mobility, plays light on his feet for size & is an excellent athlete who fits ZBS adding both depth & future starting material for Texans.

Fourth Round: Jerry Franklin, Arkansas, ILB 6100 245

Had to also move Jerry higher based on his productivity & need for depth @ ILB. He led a very good defensive Arkansas unit in tackles with with 93. Has the height weight ratio to fill inside running lanes, sure tackler, high motor/effort who plays with passion. Also had 10 TFL for loss, 4 passes broken up, 5 QB hurries & one fumble recovery for a 94 yard TD.

Fifth Round: David Paulson, Oregon, TE 6040 244

Owen & Dresseen proved yesterday how important the TE position is for the Texans. I think the league is catching on & TE position is becoming more of a commodity, not just another blocker @ scrimmage. Paulson is a sure handed option in passing game, excellent down field blocker & give Texans the best TE receiving corps in the NFL.

Sixth Round: Robert Golden, Arizona, CB/SS 5110 200

Glover Quin doesn't get near enough credit (had to go back & check his vertical 38") the move to SS was overdue & it's obvious his natural NFL position. Robert Golden is very similar in a lot of ways. I will be following his workout among many others to see how he eventually grades out but for now he makes looks like an excellent back-up to Glover & special teams player moving forward. Third on club with 60 tackles in 2010, 69 tackles in 2011 starting CB but has experience playing SS as well.

Seventh Round: G.J. Kinne, Tulsa, QB 6020 230

Using last pick (Mason compensatory null/void) on another QB. Giving credit for this selection to rmartin65. From Mesquite Texas, he had a passer rating of 147.53 passing for 2859 yards, on 228 completions out of 355 attempts. 25 TD's & 12 INT's. Three years of starting experience also threw for 3650 yards 31 TD's & 10 INT's in 2010. 2009 2732 yards, 22 TD's 10 INT's. Like Case Keenum here as well but Kinne seems to have the stronger arm of the two & better size moving foward.

Hope y'all like it

If there is any place the Texans can use a new starter, those would be the ones I'd pick.

I love Jj & I love KDub, but Julio Jones on this team (or AJ Green for that matter) would have been sick.

Our run defense saved face overall, but when I saw Cedric Benson break that big run.... I was like.....


Damn.

Default Re: Week 14 Texan Mock

As is stands right now I really like this Mock.

I love Chapman...I had mocked him in the 2nd round before, but you are probably right that he is gone by then.

I really want a bigger, athletic corner on the team though. I have mocked trading up for Kirkpatrick but that is unlikely. Gonna start looking for guys in the 3rd round that fit the bill...

Once you get through the elite guys it's hard to find a guy with size that stands out. Donnie Fletcher from Boston College goes 6'1" and he can be had in the third round. Other than him, you're looking at a a large group of guys that goes 5'10" and 5'11".

I don't really put a lot of importance on size for a corner, as long as they have the necessary skills. Revis is only 5'11" 198 and he's probably the most physical guy around.

A guy with size would be nice, but I see it more as a luxury than a necessity. Even in the NFL, there are not a whole lot of guys with Kirkpatrick's size and skill set.

I agree with what you are saying. That said, I've seen our corners get spaghetti eaten off the top of their heads a lot this year.

I'm not a size guy really. I'm a skill guy.

Geez that sounds sexual......

Default Re: Week 14 Texan Mock

Would you guys like to see Chapman playing nose tackle for the Houston Texans? He commands double teams, stuffs interior running lanes & free's up LB's Highsmith & Upshaw, instead it would be DeMeco & Cushing.



Fuller has the size a lot of us are looking for, question is how healthy & why regression his senior year for Texas A&M?


I posted this mock before news of Mike Brisel playing on a broken leg this past weekend (he is the ultimate warrior) any questions about former 3rd rd. pick (#77) out of Alabama Antoine Caldwell are about to be answered. Both interior linemen have been plauqed with injurys difference is Brisel has been able to play through them, until now. Both Caldwell & Blake offer Center/OG versatility value & both have played @ a high level in College. Antoine Caldwell came out 6033 307 had a 4th/5th rd. grade (ourlads) ran 5.27 forty, benched 220 23 times & had long arms 34". Texans drafted him as their future starting Center but Myers has developed into more than a stop gap Center, in fact some say he may even be Pro-Bowl material. So Caldwell slides over to RG with Brisel out. I see Baylor Center/OG equal if not better down the road, only time will tell & what team thinks enough to grab him earlier than projected.

The one downside of having such a good football team is that for every win in the playoffs we drop lower and lower in the draft. It's a problem that hopefully we'll have for a long time to come and essentially means that we have to draft players a round early if we want them. I really like your 1st, 2nd, and 4th round picks. I think that's way to early for Blake, and we've already discussed Paulson a couple times. I like the Golden pick as SS depth, an upgrade behind Quin is definetly needed, but not as a CB. I don't know anything about Kinne.

You'll also be in less need of instant starters if you're a perennial play-off team. So it kind of works out.

Day before the next big game (Carolina) & Texans continue to get thinner in key positions. I could flip both players @ this stage, either one would be too good of value to pass on w/late 5th. Since Paulson is a personal favorite & natural fit in Texan offense with Dreessen playing hurt/free agent I'm going to flip these guys/picks. TE is actually THE key position in Texan play action offense that makes it go even when everything else is struggling or breaking down.

Default Re: Week 14 Texan Mock - UPDATED WEEK 17

First Round: Dontari Poe, Memphis, NT 6040 335



Now that it's official, Poe is entering the 2011 NFL Draft, projected late first round, Texans select #26th as it stands, this is about right & where talent/potential meets need bolstering the Texan interior DL. Poe will be one of those ascending players because people, media, scouting community don't really know a lot about him but will be impressed enough @ the combine, along with for his pro-day workouts get multiple offers to visit teams for private workouts (Texans will be one of those teams). That workout will be key & influential in the draft if Wade believes he's found himself a franchise NT for his 3-4 scheme.

Second Round: Jeff Fuller, Texas A&M, WR 6035 225

Texan WR's play well together, even without big target, stud #1 WR Andre Johnson yet still need another star added to arsenal. Down year for entire Aggie program including firing on former Texan assistant head coach Mike Sherman. Has the same size as Dwight Jones who I had projected in the first round for Texans last week, played through assorted injurys still averaged almost 60 yards per game with 11.3 avg. per catch & 5 TD's. Expected bigger things from Jeff after last season, when he collected 72 receptions, 82 yards per game, 14.81 yards per catch & 12 TD's. Over course of four years @ Texas A&M Fuller caught almost 3,000 yards (2973) 226 receptions & 33 TD's.

Third Round: Phillip Blake, Baylor, Center/OG 6024 320

Blame RG3 if you want but chances are Phillip Blakes stock is also soaring, unlike RG3 it's a given Blake will enter the 2012 NFL draft because he is a senior. Realistic draft grade if Texans want to cover/fill two positions in one. Blake has excellent mobility, plays light on his feet for size & is an excellent athlete who fits ZBS adding both depth & future starting material for Texans.

Fourth Round: David Paulson, Oregon, TE 6040 244

The TE is central to Kubiaks offense leaning heavily on Owen Daniels for production while Dresseen feeds underneath & in open seams often neglected by opposing defenses. But that is in the past as teams focus on shutting down the TE position with nickle & safety help instead of LB's. The league is also catching on to the value of a TE position becoming more of a weapon with favorable match-ups, not just another blocker on line of scrimmage. Paulson is a sound blocker, fits play action offense, has ability to run after the catch, excellent down field blocker already with big play mentality.

Fifth Round: Jerry Franklin, Arkansas, ILB 6100 245

Very Porductive, high energy player who reminds me a lot of Sharpton. He led a very good defensive Arkansas unit in tackles with with 93. Has the height weight ratio to fill inside running lanes, sure tackler, high motor/effort who plays with passion. Also had 10 TFL for loss, 4 passes broken up, 5 QB hurries & one fumble recovery for a 94 yard TD.

Default Re: Week 14 Texan Mock - UPDATED WEEK 17

This is an excellent draft. I like all players and think Fuller could do well under Texans' coaching staff. I would go Keenum in 7th as I have watched him and no little about 65's guy.

Good work as always.

Just curious, is Worthy (Mich st) not liked around here or do people just think he wont be available? I love the fire he plays with and his ability to penetrate seems like a perfect fit for this defense. Would love to see him between Smith and Watt.

I like his game too, reminds me of Nick Fairley, last year @ Auburn drafted by Detroit. Very disurptive, explosive first step just not your typical 3-4 nose run stuffer like Poe of Chapman. Depends on Wade his draft grade would seem to support a first round grade.

At 310 with his explosiveness and nasty demeanor I think he could handle DT or NT (whatever) in our scheme with no problems. Playing him along side of Smith and Watt would be fun to watch. I seriously doubt he will be around when we pick but if he slid just a little I would trade up for him without hesitation. A perfect fit IMO.

I didn't see him play during the year but just watch a bunch of video on him and I like what I see alot. He reminds me of Brandon Thompson from Clemson, similar size and athleticism. For his size he's got great athleticism, quickness, and speed, he also seems to hold up to the double teams well so he must have good strength. I noticed that he's inconsistent with his pad level, when he keeps them low he's very explosive and gets into the backfield quickly when he gets to high the O-line stands him up and neutralizes him. That should be easy to fix. He seems to have the frame to handle a few extra pounds which I think would be a benefit to him, I'd want him to play around 320 lbs. without losing his athleticism but that should be pretty easy to do and honestly it's nitpicking. If we want him I think we'd have to take him in the 1st round though since I don't think he'd be available at our pick in the 2nd.

Unless he blows everybody away at the Combine with superior speed and strength, I think Wade passes on him. JMO.

As much as I have praised and pushed Poe, I'm thinking Wade will not select a NT in first. He should understand we desperately need WR help. I started researching another option at the Nose about 3 weeks ago and really am warming up to the guy. Not sure if he will end up on my end of season mock but looking good now. I'll share info when I've had a bit more time to evaluate as film is very scarce.
