Agreed

I really want us to take A DE in rds. 1-3

If we can trade down & get an extra 3rd this would be ideal

Ayers in the 2nd or Sidbury in the 3rd would do the trick.

Sidbury is a guy who has untapped potential IMO

This seems like a very shaky mock draft. Sanchez at #1 raised some eyebrows for sure.

As for his 15th selection for our Texans, his choice was pretty astute based on who was left on the board. Davis makes a lot of sense even if do resign Dunta and/or lure a guy here with big FA dollars.

As previous poster stated, you can never have enough quality CBs and if he is the best or 2nd best secondary player in the draft and he is there at #15, you almost have to take him especially if Maualuga is off the board at #14 as this mock has him going there.

sorry about the walloftext, its early

Some paraphrased/shortened version of comments from nfldraftscout senior bowl coverage.

1/20/09 - Monday Wake Forest's Alphonso Smith has elite foot quickness, and flexible hips for man coverage. Smith was aggressive throughout the day, breaking up multiple short passes, and challenging receivers to try and take him deep. He victimized White for an easy pick-six late in the scrimmage that just served as icing on the cake. Smith was as impressive as any player on the field.

1/21/09 - Wednesday The poor QB play has made grading CBs tougher than most years. What has been obvious throughout the week, however, is Wake Forest's CB Alphonso Smith's willingness to gamble -- often resulting in big plays in his favor. Smith has excellent foot quickness and balance. In fact, he frequently has run better routes than the receivers he was covering this week. He intercepted his third pass in as many practices Wednesday.

Somebody will take him in the first. I'd rather the Texans draft DE, DT, or LT over corner, but if they go that route, I like Smith best, and of the guys who could be there it's not really close.

His height is a negative, but he's about the same size as guys like Cortland Finnegan, Asante Samuel, Dre Bly, and Aaron Glenn. If you had the chance to pick up one of those guys fresh out of college would you pass on them over an inch or two? I think not.

Look for us to grab run stuffing LB/s. Rey M. and one other in rounds 3-5
