i started pulling my pant legs up when I saw Colt McCoy at #10. I think McCoy lost the Heisman against Nebraska, but if he gets it that only increase the $ a tram would have to give him. Sikes is a good LB but not on our list of priorities especialy after DIles stepped up. Lindley is good but I also have a ? how h would do in our defense. Maybe if we draft Haden in first and Lindley were to replace Reeves...

In addition I do a lot of research on 40 times and the ol football smell test.

The nice thing about watching major conference play is you get to see multiple prospects in a game. Take a Bama-Florida game. Think how many players you will get to see there. So, really if you do your homework and plan ahead of time, you can see all the players you want without a ton of investment time. Also the Texas-nebraska game tonight. You have Suh on the Dline against Utolski on the OT. You can also see Asante(CB), Sergio kindle, Earl Thomas, Thenarse, Houston, etc. Lots of quality players with little real investment. Just grab a pad of paper, note the players you are looking at and sit back and enjoy. Planning is the name of the game and it helps me tremendously.

The reason I say he can be bad in zone is because I see the way he plays. He bumps and run as a man corner. In a Zone scheme you need to get into your zone on the field and then quickly make a break for the ball. Linds ran a poor 40 time at his Kentucky Pro day last year(4.53). This suggests to me that he cannot make up ground very easily. He needs to push and pull the receiver at the LOS because his recovery speed is not the best. So, asking him to go to a zone on the field, asking him to read the coverage, and then breaking back towards the ball does not seem to play to his strengths.

Therefore, my assessment of him was that he would not be a good zone corner and a much better man corner.

I understand that there are a lot of people that simply base their opinions on what others say. But you should know that the Draft Guru, would never do this!
This past weekend was a good day for draftnicks and I was able to see what all the hub bub was about on Suh (he is great though he was neutralized a lot also) and to confirm my opinion on Cody (not interested). I may do a thread on my observations on the guys I watched play later as that would really stir some of you up.

Default Re: My December mock

Another thing to consider is the ZBS might not be here next year. Lets face it, its been a failure this year. With Kubes (most likely) on his way out, I dont see any reason for Gibbs to stay. Asamoah and my favorite OG in the draft, Iupati, would be great guards in other schemes. I think this team can easily turn into a power run game, we only need two pieces.

LT- Brown is good. He is strong, agile and quick, he is a keeper.
LG- Pitts could play the power scheme, he could stay for a while.
OC- Need someone. But we would need somebody anyway without a switch.
RG- Brisiel I really dont know enough about. But I think Caldwell would be a pretty good power guard.
RT- Winston is a great fit here.

So there we go, a center and a guard need to be drafted. And I think most people would agree that we need those anyway.

how much do we know about Caldwell, that would be my question?

Toby Gerhart will not last till the 3rd round.

Kyle Wilson is purely a speed guy. He is overrated at his position because he is faster than the guys he plays against. He will not have that speed advantage in the NFL and he does not have that good of actual cover skills. He is a gifted kick returner, that's about it.

We run a 4-3 and Von Miller is not a DE or an OLB. Where does he fit in? His only position at the next level is as a 3-4 rush LB.
I'll stand by by post that Thomas would be insane to remain another year but I'll not be shocked if he does. He will be a high first round and remaining a year does nothing for him. There are some guys from last season who should be kicking themselves for not coming out in last draft. McCoy, I can understand because he had the Vince thing going and so many early comments about his skills. Even Brown signed another QB just in case. Thomas needs to get under NFL coaching and start cashing some large checks.

Gerhart, you could be correct and I have moved him all over my mocks since RMartin 65 introduced him to me. Find another mock prior to his 205 yards two Saturday's ago with him higher than 3rd. My comments in thread gives my position. Do not be surprised as we get closer to draft that I move him up.

Kyle Wilson, I think you are wrong on Wilson but hope 31 general managers agree with you. He has had 8 INTS in 2 years. Remember, if my draft goes my way, we have Haden starting with Wilson replacing Jacoby "just call me Junior High"Jones. Kyle's coverage skills will only improve and NFL WR will be fast but 4.42 is fast. Just ask DR who has made quite a few millions as a not so fast, not so good coverage guy playing as our #1 CB. WIlson would be our nickle replacing Quin who I move to FS and would not be going up against ones and twos

On a side note, Von is freaking hilarious off the field, as soon as he's done on the field he should be a color commentator for any network in the country.
Great for fans but not for him. He could just as easily revert to previous years. He could be a boom or bust guy and is well worth a later day pick. I could see him being talked into "showing the world you are now a premier sack guy one more year." What is your take on your competitor Joe Pawelek from Baylor?

Malcom Jenkins does not effect your thinking? He should.

I don't think I'll be able to get into the draft as much this year. It's no longer "the bright spot" of our season as I don't see this team as an expansion team....just a loser at this point. I'm sure I'll get excited about some new players around APRIL next year, but I guess when your team never improves it just gets old.

I'd used him similar to Conner Barwin. You find a place for those skills and if only a 6th you can school him up for an entire contract and cost you little. He is 6'3" and 240 and could spot replace either Diles or Cush.

You are just dealing with depression, Vinny. Replace Studdard with Asamoah, Caldwell for Briesel (or which is better) and add a power back and the entire O is way more productive. Could keep D off the field about 30% more, also. Haden is the real deal and Quinn can play FS. NFLdraftscout ranked him #7 FS in nation when he came out. What is "glass 1/2 full" for me is the teams we could have beat with the players we have. Add quality guys in draft and we could have a darn good team. I just think Kubes is not the guy.

I hope he stays not just for the good of the team, but for himself as well. He is truly a tweener who is hard to project at the NFL level because his combination of athleticism and size is good in college football but is somewhat average in the NFL, however he has been a very good pass rusher this year so there will always be a place for him. Hopefully he stays to refine his technique and pick up new moves before he enters the draft.

As for Pawelek, to be honest, I've watched probably the same amount on him as you and he's never really stood out to me. I can't even remember if he played at the A&M-Baylor game this year; I think he did but his supporting cast is so weak that it really didn't help him standout.

He is not dealing with depression as much as he like I have been following when Joel Bushbaum was alive and when you called Mel Kiper you got him or his wife on the phone line to take your order. We know the realities of the draft, essentailly a few things happen

1) your team will not draft the players you fall in love with
2) those players you fall in love and are "better" than the the guys already on you team will suck as NLFers.
3) Especially when you are dealing with guys this early , players who are thought of a 1st rounder may not even get drafted and guys none of you are discussing right now are going to go in the first/second round ancd actually will be good.

The draft was a lot more fun when it was an activity we nerds spent a couple months on it versus people who seem to care more about it than the actual games that are played. If you are making a mock before the season ends and all the players are announced for the draft you have your priorities screwed up.

The best thing to do is to learn about as many players generally as you can and the needs/philosophy of as many teams as possible. Some of us who watch a ton of college football, the combine, and everything else will be lucky as hell to get 2 out 7/8 picks right for our teams when the actual event happens.

Sorry, you got a rant that has been building up since I saw the first mock draft/wish list somewhere around Labor Day. Watch college football and enjoy it with the hope the team drafts one player that you give damn about before he is on the Texans.

Is this like not playing Christmas music until after Thanksgiving ?

I see it as identifying what you percieve the Texans needs . The players don't really matter at this point .

Well thanks for the insults and it really sucks to be you.

WHen I purchase a new automobile, I don't wait until the car is in the show room. In 2005, I found out Pontiac was testing a new roadster to compete with Porsche. When I slid into the show room car in late 2006, I was prepared for what to look for. Many of the original problems had been worked out and I was able to decide on the Solstice rather than the Sebring, Cougar, Boxster or wait for the Sky. Even if I had not purchased (drafted) the car (player) I wanted, it was fun for me to do. FYI, I have purchased a 2006, 2007 and am driving the 2008.
I spoke to Joel B two years prior to his death and his info was a constant source to me for my boards.

I am surprised that such a puritan as you even read the thread. Fans like you who pat themselves on their NFL regulation jersey or wave your season ticket at me because I choose to watch game on TV, make me snicker. You may have noticed I do post occasionally in the football forum. You have fun your way and allow the rest of us and there are a few, to seek our enjoyment where we choose.

Bye now.

When I slid into the show room car in late 2006, I was prepared for what to look for. Many of the original problems had been worked out and I was able to decide on the Solstice rather than the Sebring, Cougar, Boxster or wait for the Sky. Even if I had not purchased (drafted) the car (player) I wanted, it was fun for me to do. FYI, I have purchased a 2006, 2007 and am driving the 2008.
I spoke to Joel B two years prior to his death and his info was a constant source to me for my boards.

I am surprised that such a puritan as you even read the thread. Fans like you who pat themselves on their NFL regulation jersey or wave your season ticket at me because I choose to watch game on TV, make me snicker. You may have noticed I do post occasionally in the football forum. You have fun your way and allow the rest of us and there are a few, to seek our enjoyment where we choose.

Bye now.
Must spread rep.

Different people enjoy different things. The Texans are my team. I love watching them on TV. I dont live near Houston, so I rarely do, so it is very valuable for me.

However, I love the draft. I love the not knowing of what is going to happen. I love trying to figure out teams weaknesses, strengths, etc. The draft accompanies the actual games, not takes the place of.

Agreed, my friend. The difference is we don't try to put down other posters for their threads. I we don't like the topic, we simply move on.

Did you get a chance to watch any of the games last Saturday? Haden and Ingram really impressed me and Mike Johnson G looked steady if not spectacular.

Sad indictment as any that our senior mod has lost the joy of his team & very building blocks of its formation, choosing to neglect draft activities I'm sure someday the same fate awaits all of us but at least for now, "not so fast"

I am after a guard to replace Studdard. I am assuming you watched the Alabama/Florida game? How did you evaluate Mike Johnson? SOme others have said he was bascially worthless, but I think he held his own.

the joy from the team comes from a credible product, but I'm a bigger fan of the NFL than perhaps the Texans...so I do enjoy going to NFL games each Sunday either way. What I have lost most of my interest in is the draft in December. It used to be something to look forward to as a fan of an expansion franchise but this is no longer an expansion franchise. I'll get excited about the draft around the combine, but it doesn't matter who you draft if the team never ever wins more games than it loses in nearly a decade of drafting. Go ahead and enjoy the endless speculation, but I'll enjoy the games where teams are fighting for something. I enjoy the game, the strategy, the fight, and the intensity of the NFL playoffs and the games determining the last playoff slots without the Texans in the mix once again. I just can't get excited about the draft in week 14 of the NFL season since there are 8 weeks of football left. The draft will be there when April arrives.
