I dunno if 20 is too high. There are some that rate him higher than Wilson. Jackson is also climbing up draft boards at a very high rate now too.

I dunno much on Jackson, yet. I think Wilson has a slight edge over McCourty in cover skills, but McCourty can lay the wood like a pre-injured Dunta. That's not saying Wilson's skeered over laying the wood, but I'd give the slobber-knockin edge to McCourty. We know the Texans love CB's that lay the wood.

Yeah, they like em big and physical. mcCourty can run also, so they will take him over Wilson, me thinks. They just may trade down first. Is also pretty damn fast. I wouldn't be mad at all if he was the guy.

Funny how McClain is hopping all over the place the past couple of weeks. For a while now it has been Mathews, Mathews, Mathews. Then he teetered between Wilson and McCourty. Hell, I can just name a bunch of players that are in our range and probably hit on one of them and then say I was right.

I think the same can be said of any of these mock drafts. All have been back and forth between Wilson and Mathews for the most part.

And for what its worth.... McClain is now back to RB Ryan Mathews in his 3rd edition which I dont feel like even starting a thread for at this point:

There's no way I would take a CB in the 1st round of this draft. Not when there is as much depth available, combined with the fact that there are no elite prospects at the position. On the other hand, Pouncey is an elite prospect at Center. Dan Williams is an elite prospect at NT. Earl Thomas is an elite prospect at Free Safety. And, I consider Spiller and Mathews elite prospects at RB. It's no lock that any of these guys will be available. But if one is, I grab him and find a darn good corner in the 2nd round.
my point exactly. let's get Pouncey in 1st then address CB and RB later. Hardesty would be a good fit and give us a short yardage, goal line option.

Matthews helps the running game when he plays but Pouncey would help the running AND passing game when ANYONE plays.

if kollar and bush like Williams, I could see us maybe going for him over Pouncey but Dan is moving up boards real fast.

McClain is a moron, but I do think he is on to something with him projecting a lot of OL going early. I could see that happening.

2 MOAR DAZE!! DRAFT TIME!

SH, I agree with like 4 things you just said!!!
I agree with you that I'd rather go with Pouncey than a RB in the 1st. In the end, though, I'm almost positive that our 1st selection will be at CB or FS.

That is a good evaluation. Wilson can hit but did not do that in season due to being on WR in tight coverage and that is the CB I want. I wished I had had the opportunity to watch McCourty but he was not on my radar.

McCourtey also fits the Texans profile as a smart player. He made multiple Big East All-Academic teams.

Ya know no one is coming out and saying it, but what I hear everyone saying in the draft guru smoke speak, when they discuss Clausen, Clausen = Jeff George. Now if that's the case, and I surely don't know, just a guess by me, he could very well fall into the twenties.

Well he's a nice prospect. But color me unimpressed.
