Default Beerlover Final Texan 2013 Mock

First Round: Alec Ogletree, ILB, Georgia 6024 242


Plays off instincts, elite closing speed/range for position. Relieves some pressure off Cushing returning off season ending injury while also providing player with potential to groom. Position with little depth on roster, so this fills a huge hole. Shows positive trendline throughout career as Bulldog finishing with 111 tackles 11.5 of which where for loss, 3 sacks, 5 QB hurries & 5 passes defended. Three down LB who can cover TE's & RB's must learn gap responsibilities.

Second Round: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor 6020 208

Frame, Core strength & speed to stretch field. Gives Schaub a viable weapon to target, willing blocker & was highly productive with & without Robert Griffin III. True senior, 97 receptions 1832 yards & 12 TD's in 2012. In 2011 he was just not targeted by Robert because Kendall Wright was his #1 option still his yards per catch were higher than Kendall (16.22 vs 15.44) while still snagging 59 receptions for 957 yards & 11 TD's.

Third Round: Chase Thomas, OLB, Stanford, 6032 244

Smart well coached player who fits best standing up, rushing passer or sealing edge & tracking the ball carrier down. Same short shuttle time 4.31 as another player considered Sio Moore. 7.5 sacks, 15.5 tackles for loss, 71 tackle total for 2012. He should be able to back-up either Reed or Mercilus as they back-fill to replace Connor Barwin.


Third Round: (compensatory Mario Williams) Jordan Mills, OT, Louisiana Tech, 6050 316

Athletic swing tackle possessing excellent feet. Developmental talent but enough upside to start within a couple years, would see rotational duty while providing insurance behind Newton (recovering from injury) with ability to back-up Brown. Butler/Harris remain a free agents w/Gardner as only back-up. Plays with good base & mirror in pass pro. Versatile, has played both left & right tackle positions, could even work into LG.

Fourth Round: Lavar Edwards, DE/DT, LSU, 6036 277

Excellent run defender. 5 tech DE who may evolve into a Jay Ratliff type of pentrating nose (similar rangy frame). Has excellent frame to work with, extremly long arms 35 1/2" overshadowed behind Mingo, Montogomery & Logan. 1.7 10 yard split showcasing first step explosiveness, good straight line speed 4.7 forty pro-day http://videos.nola.com/times-picayun...s_thrille.html Insurance to protect Watt/Smith along with Crick plus uncertainty surrounding Jamison coming off season ending injury.

Fifth Round: Kayvon Webster, CB/SS, South Florida, 5-10 1/2" 195

Physical run defender with some ball skills & surprising deep speed to cover bigger/faster receivers. Will press & engage line of scrimmage, ability to flip hips, redirect & shawdow both underneath & over the top. Similar talent to recently departed Glover Quin, less strength but makes up for it with better speed/range. Could be used a lot in nickle/dime packages, special teams & as developmental safety prospect to Ed Reed & Daniel Manning.

Sixth Round: Corey Fuller, WR, Virginia Tech, 6-2 197

Second receiver selected, to cover bases, who can move well in space & pretty developed in blocking scheme to help replace Walter. Willing to play similar role not a big production guy but can hurt you or beat teams deep. Has good speed, former Kansas track athlete and Nike indoor track All-American who transferred to Virginia Tech after his sophomore year. Caught 43 passes for 815 yards and six touchdowns last season, impressed me mostly from East-West Shrine all-star game as later round guy worth taking shot on.


[b]Sixth Round: (compensatory) Keith Pough, ILB, Howard, 6016 241

Core special teams player while improving depth @ position. Excellent work ethic & character traits, leader on the field. Willing teammate with high motor passion for the game. With this group Texans fans will never have to endure weakness up the middle like experienced last season after Cushing went down. Will also really help special teams another area of concern on kick coverage. Will be a difficult cut & probably make the 53 man roster. MEAC Defensive Player of the year, & all time FCS leader in tackles. Another gem exposed during East West Shrine practices & game.

Seventh Round: Chris Jones, NT, Bowling Green, 6-1 7/8" 301

Ran his forty a respectable 5.10 pro day with 31" vert. First-Team All Mac and earning MAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012 with 42 tackles, 12.5 sacks, and 19 tackles for loss. He fits Texans current scheme for position & solidifies some quality depth behind Mitchell. Stout, high-effort interior lineman who also flashes good short area quickness. Brings power out of his stance and an explosive punch into a blockerís chest when man-up. Constantly has a leverage advantage with his low center of gravity, and possesses the quickness and hustle to move his feet to win a gap or bull his man towards the quarterback on pass plays. Spins off blocks or uses an arm-over move to reach the quarterback. Gives effort to the sideline when the ball is on his half of the field. Works at the five-technique at times, crashes inside adeptly and plays his containment responsibilities well.

Hey beerlover, I'm no draft guy so I thought I'd ask you:

What do you think about Brandon Kaufman, WR, in the late rounds?

Oh, and I love your mock. I absolutely love TW in the second round.

Doesn't he play for Eastern Washington, 6-5 210-220? Haven't seen film on him, great measurable & good late round shot if he has some speed. That's why I went with Corey, plus he has experience in scheme & understands blocking assignments. Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated!

Film is incredible. Guy makes circus catches regularly. Would make a great red zone threat. Just don't know about his ability to separate at the NFL level. Don't remember his 40 time but it was very disappointing.

My gut tells me they are taking a TE, anyone on your radar?

Thanks BB. Making the tough decision & addressing ILB with elite talent early in the process helps rest flow more effortlessly.
