Default Doppelmock Season's end: Mock Yourself!!!

So at this point I thought it would be fun if we go back and see how we did with our mocks...How many picks did you get...

Doppelmock1(in season)
complete Whiff:

Doppelmock2 (in season)
complete whiff

Doppelmock3(in season):
-Complete whiff

Doppelmock 4:
-Selected Trevardo WIlliams, OLB in the third round: really 3rd round

Dopplemock5
-selected Zach Boren FB 7th round: really UDFA

Doppelmock6
-selected Trevardo Williams OLB in the second round: really 3rd round
-selected Chris Jones DT in the third round: really 6th round
-selected Zac Boren FB in the 7th round: really UDFA

note: first instinct was to choose DeAndre Hopkins over Robert Wood. Wish I had followed y gut!!!

Dopplemock7
complete miss. Didn't get anybody.

Dopplemock7.1
-selected Dennis Johsnon in the 6th round: really UDFA

Overall, as a predictor of the Texans picks, I did ok. Outside of the stupidly early in season mocks, I was able to pick a player the Texans would get in 4/5 remaining mocks. In Dopplemock 6 I came away with 3 correct choices and almost got 4.

Of the picks I missed, the two who had the most consideration were Hopkins and Quessenberry. I actually had them mocked in drafts of mocks, but they were removed prior to the final edit. Sweringer was considered but never made it into a draft of a mock. I never seriously considered Williams, Montgomery, Bonner, or Griffin.

Overall: not a bad job. I stand by my mocks in terms of quality players, not necessarily what the Texans actually did. As a result I am happy with my results.

Ok, your turn...time to Mock yourself!!!

Default Re: Doppelmock Season's end: Mock Yourself!!!

Early mocks dont really mean much since the boards change so much between December and the draft.

However, my final draft was not terrible. I had us picking up an OL early (I had 1st, the Texans had second), drafting Swearinger (I had 3rd, Texans got him in 2nd), two receivers (I had 2nd and 6th rounds, Texans went 1st and 6th- I even had Hopkins in the first before I decided to through a change-up in there), a nose tackle late (5th vs 6th), and a SEC pass rusher in the 3rd (Lemonier vs. Montgomery).

I won't call it excellent, or even good by any means, but I got some of the trends right.

I think I did ok with the trends too. I generally had the Texans taking WR with the first selection, a second round OLB, a third round OL, NT, and 4/5th safety. I sprinkled in another OL, WR, RB, and OLB. typically.

Kinda fun to mock yourself!!!

I got Brennan Williams in third and had Cierre Wood (forever) in 6th and he was UDFA not sure if that counts.

While I do like the players we got except for sixth round WR, I think we could have done better. Unless Brandon WIlliams is a total bust for Ravens, they schooled us. I cannot believe that we could not get a trade down into second and get a comparable WR then & another pick. We could have had a very good WR2 + Brandon + very good ILB candidate with an extra 3rd or 4th. Epic fail.

Not just you'd got player right but round as well. That counts for something. I think, it is very difficult to predict player and round. In the 1st rd, you got better chance in predicting player and round as the most of the 1st rd players are likely to be prime position players.(Except Dallas) But after 1st rd, it gets more difficult to predict as each team's evaluation seems to differ due to needs and scheme I think.

I thought Texans would select Hopkins if no trade down but I sure wanted Hankins.

I was focused on speed, getting faster in all phases. Other than Williams who I did mock, that has plus speed, Texans went physical but only average speed per position.
