Default Baby's First Mock Draft

Well, more like 3rd or 4th, but my first posted here. Working on a few assumptions here:

-Kubiak and Wade are let go; Kubiak takes over Washington from the Shanahans and keeps RG3 from getting killed while Wade coaches the 3-4 in Cleveland as a DC.

-In turn, McNair (who retains Rick Smith) hires Ray Horton, currently Cleveland's DC, as the new head coach. Horton coaches the 3-4 and has a history of churning out great defenses, though the offense hasn't always kept it's side of the bargain. Horton grabs Hue Jackson out of Cincinnati to be his offensive coordinator.

-The only major re-sign of our free agents is Antonio Smith and Garrett Graham. We have no trades but do receive a compensatory 5th for Barwin.

With that out of the way, let's begin:

1st round: Jadaveon Clowney, DE - South Carolina

Has had a down year, but this athletic freak has produced and can elevate the defense with his mere presence; teams won't be able to double team him AND Watt every down, and that will make teams pay.

2nd round: Tajh Boyd, QB - Clemson

Houston goes back to South Carolina for its first two picks again, grabbing a talented QB who has a history with Hopkins. Other options here include Zach Mettenberger from LSU, grabbing Stephen Morris in the 3rd, or even trading it for Kirk Cousins (thanks Kubiak).

3rd round: James Hurst, Tackle - North Carolina

If Brennan Williams comes back from his surgery perfectly healthy, so much the better. In any case, more offensive line depth, especially from a school that is familiar with the offense we run already. Alternatively, we grab Shane Skov or BPA ILB and go offensive tackle in the 4th.

4th round: Arthur Lynch, TE - Georgia

TE depth after cutting Owen Daniels.

5th round: Andrew Jackson, ILB - Western Kentucky

BA linebacker at this point, might be a defensive back if we grabbed Skov.

5th round*: Andre Williams, RB - Boston College

Bit of a reach that he'll still be here, but if you haven't heard of Williams yet, you should. He recently broke the 2,000 yard barrier in just 11 games this year; he should help bolster a running back group after Tate leaves,

6th round: J.C. Copeland, FB - LSU

My alum pick, the shutdown fullback. Great for bending the occasional linebacker's facemask into something unrecognizable and 1-yard touchdown run. The next Vonta Leach. Just let me have this.

7th round: Jeffrey Whitaker, DT - Auburn

Defensive tackle depth found late.

Thoughts?
