Default TK mock 2/24/12

1- Mark Barron, SS, Alabama
6'2'' 220 lbs. 4.50-40

Best safety in the draft. Upgrades the secondary which will upgrade the pass rush and upgrade the run stopping. Zen. Physically gifted and smart player with ball skills and loads of potential.

2- Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa
6'2'' 215 lbs. 4.56-40

Ideal possession receiver, could play outside or slot, gets open, makes the catch, moves the chains. Not a game breaker but that's not what I'm asking him to be.

3- Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami
6'5'' 205 lbs. 4.55-40

Here's your game breaker. Will push defenses back, open the middle and running lanes. Lots of development to do but could be great.

4- Kheeston Randall, DT, Texas
6'5'' 300 lbs. 5.10-40

Immovable DT, plays with outstanding leverage and strength. Not much of a pass rusher but will make the rotation and allow Mitchell to move outside.

5- Rishaw Johnson, OG, California (Pa.)
6'4'' 305 lbs. 5.20-40

Developmental OG

6- Marcel Jones, OT, Nebraska
6'7'' 315 lbs. 5.30-40

Gigantic Developmental OT.

7- Adrian Robinson, OLB, Temple
6'0'' 235 lbs. 4.75-40

Developmental OLB. Undersized but good pass rusher.

I would like to see more emphasis on speed. Texans put extra weight on combine numbers. Barron/McNutt must run under 4.5 to even be considered. The belief is speed kills, that you can't teach it, either have it or you don't so if they reach it will be on someone who can stretch the field or close gaps quickly.

I don't think Barron is participating in the combine right? I think people generally consider him physically gifted and big for a safety. Tommy Streeter should definitely put up a big combine, his height and speed are a lot to gamble on but who else is available in the 3rd? Brian Quick maybe? Dwight Jones? McNutt might not run like that but I'm seeing him more as a possession guy anyway.

Randall should be on the Texans radar at DT. I don't think he has the versatility to swing out to DE but has upside as a 1-gap guy who can soak up blockers against the run. His backing up Cody allows Mitchell to move to DE and improve depth there too.

What do you think of Nigel Bradham?

Darryl Shaprton clone. mid rounds. FSU always produces quality LB's.

For some reason I don't see Brian Quick getting out of the second. His draft stock will improve after the combine. McNutt is lacking something for me to be high on him. Solid posession receiver, just makes the catch, secures the ball and gets upfield. From the mich st game I watched it seemed like he didn't highpoint the ball very well, catches a lot of balls at waist level without extending or going back to the ball when it's called for. Doesn't have the over the top ability/speed like streeter but I'd be curious to see where his 10yd split is as Streeter is slow on the first step and might not be productive being jammed at the line.

See Quick as early third but if there is a run on position then second is a distinct possiblity. McNutt is a complete WR with good size, think of a more fluid athletic Kevin Walter. Streeter is interesting, but then so was Jacoby.

Lane College is not the U. Not even close. Streeter averaged 17.6 YPC, Jacoby 12 in his final year. Streeter has game changing ability, Jacoby does as well unfortunately

Great comparisons. I was only disappointed in McNutt's last game. He was ok but I was hoping for more.
