Default CBS Sports Mocks -- Dane Brugler/Rob Rang

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/mock

Updated today, mid-Combine, Brugler has Eric Fisher overall #1 now and Texans grabbing WR Keenan Allen.

Rang has Texans taking WR Tavon Austin.

I kind of agree with Fisher -- he looked every bit the part at the Combine to me.

Can someone explain to me why the Chiefs would take an OT #1. Unless they don't plan on re-signing Albert or are looking to cut Winston (with $6.3 million in dead money), the tackle spots are filled. I think the Chiefs are looking to trade the pick. And good luck with that.

Albert supposedly has a "fairly significant" back issue.

I think the Chiefs are trying to game the 49ers out of QB Alex Smith. Will be interesting going forward to see if any teams pay the price for #1 pick unless it's a franchise QB.

Albert is a FA and has passed his physical. I think they may just take Joeckel instead of giving Albert twice as much money and is likely the inferior LT over the long haul.
Quote:
Albert's back injury doesn't appear to be an issue as he passed a physical recently, but the question may come down to economics. Albert will look for a deal in the four- to five-year range at around $35-40 million. If the Chiefs allow him to walk and target Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel, it'll cost them four years and approximately $22-24 million.

He was an ELITE guard prospect. Warmack level. Top 15 overall talent as a guard. Then some people started saying he could play LT. He's not a bad OT, but once you move him to LT, he's not going to resign for LG money.

27. HOUSTON TEXANS (12-4) Keenan Allen, WR, California: The Texans drafted two receivers last season, but they still need to find an adequate weapon opposite Andre Johnson, who isn't getting any younger himself. Allen might slip a bit on draft day due to his knee injury, but he would be great value with this pick and projects as an impact NFL starter.

4/15 updates:

Dane Brugler:
Menelik Watson, OT/Florida State
Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State: The Texans cut Eric Winston last offseason and while Derek Newton filled his shoes in 2012, Houston is on the lookout for a long-term answer at right tackle. Watson is very raw and inexperienced, but the athletic tools will land him in the first round.

Rob Rang:
Robert Woods, WR/Southern California
Andre Johnson re-emerged in 2012 as one of the NFL's elite wideouts but depth remains quite thin, especially with the torn Achilles suffered by Devier Posey in the playoff loss to New England. Woods was overshadowed in 2012 by the emergence of sophomore sensation Marqise Lee but was the more reliable route-runner and pass-catcher of the two. Physically tough and experienced playing inside and out, he'd be a perfect complement to Johnson.

Pat Kirwin:
DeAndre Hopkins, WR/Clemson
Hopkins caught 18 touchdown passes last year and never drops the ball. The Texans need someone opposite Andre Johnson -- and really need someone who gets into the end zone.

Of the 3, Brugler has the better pulse of what the chatter is imo.

I'd be OK with Woods, Hopkins, or Ogletree in the first.
