Default Pre-Playoff Mock


1) Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
Folks keep saying we need a big body opposite Andre, but we have plenty of big bodies. What we are missing is talent and this guy is one of the more talented people in the draft. He can play in the slot and he can play outside.

*If he is not available I'd go with Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

2) Josh Chapman, DT, Alabama If still available would be excellent value. Gives the NT position and D-line a boost of talent. He and Cody would be a pretty good rotation there and Earl could probably play a little DE and let JJ Watt and Antonio get some rest. Would immediately push cody for playing time.

*If he is not available I'd go with Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina

3) Ben Jones, C, Georgia

Can play some gaurd if needed. Provides a good solid back-up to Myers though. Has played and started a lot of football and has been an anchor for a pretty good O-line.

4) Robert Lester, FS, Alabama

Provides good depth at the Safety position. I like Nolan, but I think we can improve on the talent and depth at that position and I thihk Lester would be great value if available here.

5) Emanuel Acho, ILB, Texas
I think he could come in and immediately compete for a back-up role. Would be good value if available here.

6) Asa Jackson, CB, Cal Poly

Small School prospect. Not a household name, but is really athletic and has started every game of his college career; freshman thru senior seasons. Can retrurn Kicks if needed. Active tackler and willing tackler. Not afraid to make a hit on the RB.

7) Jeff Demps, RB/Returner, FloridaMostly drafted to return kicks. Bascially a more versatile Trindon Holiday. Can actually play some as a RB. Was considered very good a couple years ago, but Florida as a team has struggled and I think he has been overlooked. He is also a good receiver out of the backfield and as a runner he has averaged about 6.5 ypc for his career. Very exploxive player and is definitely one of if not the fastes player in the draft.


If I went with Jenkins in the first that'd change my draft up a bit, but not much. Instead of Asa Jackson in the 6th I'd take an O-line prospect. If we went plan on getting a WR in FA I may change up my draft as well. But I'd love this draft as is.

I like it .... but if he was available I'd have a hard time passing on Wisconsin OG K.Zeitler in round two.

Any 3rd round DT's you like that would allow that pick in round two ?

I like Marcus Fortson from Miami...

He was injured this past year, but the guy is big and athletic. He had also been pretty productive his previous two seasons. Was named freshman all american....

He decided to come out early...I think he would be available where we'd be picking in the third round...

I would not have an issue swapping those picks and now that you mention it I think I like that better.

your welcome. will rep but must spread rep first.

I will do a mock soon when I get some free time. I can assure you & everyone it will have some surprises. This one up until the 4th, which I would assume is just basicly BPA in Lester, hitting priority needs in order. I even like the Jenkins pick if he is still available. I don't want another nice guy CB I want a thug back there who likes stealing from WR's & QB's

1. Wright, not the player I would have picked, I like Sanu and Jones better, but there's no arguing with Wright's talent. He's a very good player, I just don't think he fits the Texans needs.
2. Chapman, I love the player and the pick but like Corrosion said I couldn't pass on Zietler if he's available in the 2nd round. I'll take an every down OG over a NT that will rotate with Cody and only play maybe half the downs.
3. Jones, I like this pick and player if he's still available. This might take some luck for him to fall the bottom of the 3rd.
4. Lester, I like the player and pick if he's still available but I don't see any way that Lester is still on the board this late. I think he goes in the 2nd or early 3rd.
5. Acho, very good pick this late, he'd be good depth at ILB.
6. Jackson, I don't know anything about the player but don't like the idea of a late round CB. What's he going to bring to the team that Harris, Carmichael, Allen, KJ, McCain, or McManis can't do. We've got enough CB roster fillers, we need top level talent at CB.
7. Demps, we've already got him on the team his name is Trindon Holiday, small really fast KR.

I really like 1,2,3, and 5 but think 4 is unrealistic and 6 and 7 have no shot of making the team. Overall not bad but I think we can do better.

Didn't you have Sylvester Williams-NT in a previous mock in the 3rd, that was a good find. I'd stick with him.

I think Jackson has the potential to be a top level CB. The thing that hurts him is that is is at a small school. I wouldn't be taking a flyer on a guy I believed to be a filler...I'd be taking a flyer on a guy that I believed could be a top level guy with enough work.

The athleticism and size is there and he'd easily compete with J.Jo and McCain as the fastest/most athletic CB on the roster.

And Demps is better than Holiday in the sense that he could actually take Derrick Wards spot as the 3rd RB.

Demps is waaaay more polished at a true position than Holiday is so it wouldn't feel like we were dediating a spot to just a return specialist but rather a guy that could also see some time in offensive sets.

Also, I get what you are saying about Wright, but I think that Lestar Jean can be the big body guy with good athleticism and hands.

What we don't have is a guy opposite Andre as talented as Wright. A guy that can work inside and outside...We don't have that smaller type burner receiver...And Wright actually has a lot of talent to go along with his attributes.
