Default The Dream Mock thread

Just having a little fun here. Post your ideal draft for the Texans, not who you think they'll take but who you'd really like to see in a Texans uniform. Pretend for just a moment that the stars align perfectly for us for once. Just don't get too crazy, like RG3 or Blackman in rd 1 or giving us sure fire 1st rd picks in later rounds.

Rd 1 Michael Floyd WR

I doubt he makes to us but as a long time ND fan I really like this guy's game. He's a terrific football player. Great hands, good speed, willing blocker in the running game, and has played in a pro style offense. Not a great season this year due to very spotty QB play, but this guy would be terrific as a WR2 with AJ

Rd 2 Vinny Curry OLB

I thought this guy would be a late first or early second rounders but with a slower than expected 40 time, he may indeed fall to us in rd 2. He would make a terrific addition to our OLB rotation. Remember 40 time isn't everything, Suggs ran a very pedestrian 40 but has obviously been very productive.

Rd 3 Mike Martin NT

I just like this guy, tough, athletic, strong and physical. He would make a great addition to our NT rotation and allow Mitchell to move out to DE bolstering our depth their as well.

Rd 4 Janzen Jackson DB

Ultra athletic DB to add to this mix

Rd 5

Philip Blake or David Molk OC

young center to groom.

Rd 6

Devon Wylie Wr

Quick slot receiver and return man

Rd 7

Chase Ford TE

Come on, it's the Texas, we've got to pick at least 1 TE.

I'm concerned if Floyd has corrected the drinking issue. One of the ESPN guys@ combine stated Floyd had "handled his business on and off field". I don't see a DB and would go WR in 4th ideally as at least 2 guys there I want. Blake in 5th violates your parameters imo as he is a 3rd minimum (listed #5 G/C per Mayock).

Enjoyed the mock

I think Floyd has cleaned himself up. I was looking at nfldraftscout.com for rankings. We might not go DB, he's just a really good athlete and I think we need some S depth. Taylor form LSU might be interesting in the 4th or 5th, we could also easily flip flop 4 and 5 and go interior OL in 4 and a solid S for depth in 5

We really need a OG. I mocked Lonnie Edwards in 3rd as a true left guard.

I agree we need some depth at OG, to be honest Im not super familiar with the interior OL in the draft outside the top5-6 guys.

Decastro is the best and he and Konz should be gone although some have Konz available. I like Zeitler from Wisconsin (Beerlover turned me on to him some time ago) but he is a second round that may also be gone by #58.
