Default Texans Trade Down Mock

Texans trade #20 to St Louis in exchange for picks #33 & #65

The reasoning: St Louis (surprisingly) decides to take the best player in the draft & picks Suh @ #1 as spags couldnt resist an elite d-lineman to help transform last years poor unit into something resembling the giants d-line of a few yrs back. They did this with the intention of taking Colt McCoy @ #33 as their qb of the future. However, due to Jimmy Clausen's unexpected tumbledown the draft board, the rams make a tough decision for a team with so many holes & decides to trade up & get the much higher rated qb on their board. #20 is as high as they can move up with their 2nd & 3rd rounders. For the Texans, the trade down was a welcome option with both Earl Thomas & Kyle Wilson off the board.

#33-Brian Price, DT, UCLA. Suits what the texans do as a smallish passrushing DT's. Very productive player with good film who wouldve been a first rounder most years.

#51-Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers. Athletic corner with good measurables who tackles well & also plays special teams so ticks all the Texans boxes as a possible replacement for Dunta

#65-Ben Tate, RB, Auburn. And the Texans take their RB. Tate is a good sized back with nice speed & explosion.

#81-Jon Asamoah, G, Illnois. Athletic ZB guard with nice movement & strength to fight it out & hopefully turn our interior OL into less of a weakness

#118-Robert Johnson, FS, Utah. Instinctive coverage FS that could push the recovering Eugene Wilson or improving Dom Barber for the starting FS spot

#150- Myron Lewis, CB, Vandy. Cant have too many corners & hes a prototype, team leader type i.e. this year bennett/molden pick

#187-Donald Jones, WR, Youngstown State. Project wr

#197- Lindsey Witten, DE, Conneticut. Very undersized speed rusher to give tim bulman some competition & maybe improve 3rd down pass rush occassionally

#227- Jonathan Crompton, QB, Tennesse. Played in a pro style offence and ok movement so take a flyer on him

I like it. I just have 2 concerns.

1. I don't see McCourty dropping that far. He's been shooting up the mock boards recently and he's edging into late first/early second consideration.

2. I don't see Asamoah dropping that far. I think he goes in the 2nd round.

Yep...Insert Asamoah in the #51 slot and then insert Amari Spievey or Jerome Murphy in the #81 spot and voila!!!

You're going to have to decide: are you committed to the running game or not ? Watching the replay of Path to the Draft Saturday, The consensus is Asamoah isn't getting out of the second round....sorry. If they want to fix the running game they have to hit a free agent or get very lucky in the third round if you are going DT, Cb. Good Luck with that.

The more I feel this draft out I think the best option is to hit interior OL early then DT and CB/FS later, with RB being a debated point depending on how you rate Mathews.

The quality at DT and CB is much better than interior OL.

Thank you. Just looking at people scrambling for Quarterbacks; Protecting the one we have in hand is priority one. And nothing is going to protect him more than an efficient running game. Nothing.

I'm not going to be shocked at all if Iupati falls into our laps at twenty and he is the pick. Do the same thing with Asamoah. But if you're targeting him in the second better be willing to move up to the top of the round and snatch him up. The gamble on waiting on Newhouse or everyone's 5 4 oh my Guad get the sun dial, forty bama darlin' , Mike Johnson, is that they can make a smooth transition. We got back up centers and guards. What we don't have is two quality starting pivot men starting next to each other. Might go cheap at three of five. Go cheap five of five, that there thingy is a tragedy waiting to happen. I don't care how fast Spiller is if there isn't a significant upgrade in talent or production from the current seven , he ain't going to do jack squat in 2010.

I am all for shoring up the line, and if we went that direction I would want a first day starter and at #20 that could only mean Pouncey in my opinion. Of course, Kubiak will give every opportunity to the starter, but we can't take a year two or three guy.

Why would you draft 315 when you can draft 330,who is faster smother and more powerful and scheme diverse ? the Poundster may be the safer pick, but if you want a dominate running game against any NT or DT in the league, that would be Iupati. Also Iupati has the arms and feet to shift out side and Pouncey does not. The poundster will always be an inside pivot man. There is nothing in Iupati's game that can not be fixed by September. As far as physicality, it isn't even close.
