Default Beerlover 2014 Mock Draft

Don't get mad Texan Fans, get even. This is my reaction to another crippling loss this time to a St. Louis team most everybody had marked off schedule as automatic win prior to stunning decline. As a mocker we have a saying, " they're is always next year & the draft" sometimes like now, it's all we have, so here it goes, let me have your feedback, criticisms & applause.

First Round: QB Zach Mettenberger, LSU, 6050 230

Unless Texans lose rest of way out or turnaround & win out they should be picking in middle of pack, maybe as low as 10 or high as 17. What a disappointment. Time to address QB position with a high pick once again. Mettenberger is a strong armed competitive leader who could help rebuild this franchise. Dan Brugler selects Zach for Texans #17 overall -
Quote:
Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU: At Matt Schaub's current rate, he's going to throw more touchdowns to the other team than Texans' receivers. If Houston misses out on the playoffs due to inconsistent quarterback play, it won't be a shock to see the position addressed in the offseason.
Second Round: OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson, 6020 235

Electric edge rusher who projects to OLB next level. Beasley is averaging 1.6 sacks per game. If Clemson makes it to the ACC championship game, it will play 14 games this season, meaning Beasley is on pace for 22 sacks. Would be a nice bookend to Merciuls, allowing Brooks to focus inside. Red shirt Junior so expect him to come out with big season & Tigers success, check out game next weekend against Florida State.


Third Round: CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State, 5110 197

Kareem has been a consistent penalty machine, now he is headed towards his big contract, just don't see value here & time to cut ties with Texans 2010 first round pick. He can play out his final season then head for free agency in the meantime Texans need to develop a young corner to groom as his replacement. Dennard is sticky in coverage, smooth in his backpedal, similar to Kareem with slightly better hands, not a bad value for 3rd rd. compared to a first, thank you very much.



Fourth Round: ILB John Timu, Washington, 6010 235

Plays & looks like Troy Polamalu. High motor, instinctual & very disruptive. A takeaway machine. Would also help improve special teams, no way this guy wouldn't make the 53 man roster & become answer in middle next to Cushing. Plus pass blitzer. Honorable mention All-Pac-12 as well as honorable mention Academic All-Pac-12 this is a class player with upside.



Fifth Round: OT Austin Wentworth, Fresno State, 6050 306

In mold of a Logan Mankins & David Quessenberry. Texans need another swing tackle/LG prospect. Although I think the line play has been a lone bright spot as of late we've seen what injurys on OL can wreck havoc. Outland list prospect who is a 5th year starter & polished technically couild make a quick jump to next level.



Sixth Round: KR/PR/RB Mark Venric, Northwestern, 5080 175

A true Senior, Mark is a utility weapon RB, Punt & Kickoff Retuner. Think of a Darren Sproles. Texans should not let Trindon Holliday experiment discourage them, just need to stick with your people a little longer. NCAA active leader in punt return average at 16.3 yards per attempt ... Ranks fifth amongst active players nationally with 1,881 kickoff return yards ... Named to preseason watch lists for Doak Walker (2012 semifinalist), Maxwell and Paul Hornung Awards ... Named a first-team All-American at punt returner by the Football Writers Association of America a year ago.



Seventh Round: DT Wade Keliikipi, Oregon, 6030 306

Very quick feet, pass rusher or run stopper. Had 2 1/2 sacks against a very active & mobile QB in Washington's Price. Looks much larger than weight indicates, think he could rotate @ nose with Mitchell. Not impressed with McClain jumping offsides. Flashes dominance upfront in short bursts. Sub 5.0 sec. forty. Has averaged 20 tackles in two previous seasons, so far this year has 14, 3 for loss and as mentioned 2.5 sacks vs Huskies. From a tough area Waianae, Hawaii, looks the part of an NFL linemen from same program that produced Haloti Ngata.
