Default Blake's 1 and Only Texans Mock

A week out, here is how I see it going down.

Round 1(27): Margus Hunt, DL, S.M.U.
Very similar measurements and combine results as Watt. Another tool on the D-line which will vastly improve our depth on the line. Texans like mature, dedicated players who love the game of football. Hunt fits all of this, and has a great deal of upside and untapped talent.

Round 2(57): Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
Basically torched everyone with over 130 yards or two touchdowns in all games but 3. An outside guy who will be able to stretch the field for us. Lastly a great red zone target to help our RZ offense finish drives.

Round 2(62): Vance McDonald, TE, Rice
Never a popular concept with this crowd, but the Texans trade this years 3rd round pick #89, 5th round pick #160, and next years 3rd round pick to Baltimore, to move up to the last pick in the 2nd round, pick #62. Apparently I am in love with these Texas school prospects. But we all know that TE is an area of need, with Daniels getting older, and Graham having potential concussion issues. I believe he had 2 or 3 last season. Vance is a bigger TE at 6'4" 267 pounds, but super athletic. A better hybrid than we have ever had.

Round 3(95): Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida
Just a guess at who they would take at ILB. But Bostic is defiantely one of the prospects im sure they have their eye on. Kiko Alonso is another possibility. Bottom line we need help at ILB and one of these two guys can do it.

Round 4(124): Luke Marquardt, RT, Azusa Pacific
Large tackle with a basketball background. Very quick and agile at his size. Only other NFL player drafted from this school is Christian Okoye.

Round 6(195): Denard Robinson, KR,WR,RB,QB Michigan
I think anyone who knows me saw this one coming. Dude is a play-maker, big play waiting to happen. Thats what I am after with my late picks on offense. I could see him going earlier, but this is where I would feel comfortable selecting him for the Texans.

Round 6(201): Ray Ray Armstrong, S, ex-Miami (FL)
Safety depth, special teams player. Lets see what he can do in camp.

Round 7(233): Bruce Taylor, ILB, Virgina Tech
More linebacker help. Cushing, Sharpton, Dobbins, Bostic and Taylor.

Hope you enjoyed.

I don't think you can trade the supplemental pick.

That said, I don't like trading back into the second for McDonald. If we're going to trade back up into the second round I'd rather it be for a good WR prospect that has fallen a bit...

I'm fine with the rest of it, and I know a lot of people won't like Hunt in the first, but I'd be completely on board with that. He and JJ Watt in the future would give this defense an identity.

Yeah, you can't trade compensatory picks .

Comp picks are different from supplemental picks.

"Since 1977, the NFL has also held a Supplemental Draft to accommodate players who did not enter the regular draft. Players generally enter the Supplementary Draft because they missed the filing deadline for the NFL Draft or because issues developed which affected their eligibility (such as academic or disciplinary matters). The draft is scheduled to occur at some point after the regular draft and before the start of the next season." (source: wiki)

Like the first 4 picks but don't like having to trade up to get McDonald. The last 4 picks I'm not really enamored with.

I like it, but I don't think we should trade up for Vance. If he's there, he's there, if not, there are other TEs in this draft that can play in this offense. Don't like Denard Robinson or Ray Ray. Also, switch Jon with Kiko and I love it.
