Talking about way off reality, this one just broke the system. Also feel Texans Bill O'Brian will address QB via free agency with ....wait for it... Matt Cassel

1) Jadeveon Clowney, DE/OLB, BPA hand down or standing up premium pass rusher

2) Morgan Moses, OT, just a man among boys, day one starter

3) Jarvis Landry, WR, taking advantage of deep underclassman class, excellent return skills

4) Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, ridiculous value I know but he was there for the taking

5) Jordan Zumwalt, ILB/OLB, breakout defensive riser with a 3rd rd. grade

6) Tre Boston, Safety, Manning/Keo replacement

7) Ryan Carrethers, NT, run plugger to develop along side free agent pick-up.... wait for it .... Terrence Cody

If Cody and Cassell are our big FA signings I will be a sad panda.

I could learn to like this draft. Morgan Moses does it for me. If something should happen to Duane Brown, I won't feel so desolate in the future.

Reilly-----Levy------Tulloch--------Kennard


Add in some Antonio Smith and Alan Branch in FA and you've got the making of a tough front 7. You could even put Mosely in the middle and let Ansah play the WLB pass rush role.

The Offense would be deadly.

one of the interesting choices that will inevitably arise some round in this upcoming draft to me is demonstrated in this mock. that is selecting a WR because he is BPA (very deep class because of underclassman). would you guys encourage Texans to go this route, bypassing a higher need in favor of a higher graded player? if say, a Jarvis Landry falls out of 2nd rd. & he is sitting there for Texans, would you do it?

1 QB TEDDY BRIDGEWATER - Starting QB, good to go.
33 DE KONY EALY - Bookend with Watt, would be happy with this.
65 DT WILL SUTTON - New big guy in the middle.
97 ILB YAWIN SMALLWOOD - Good talent int he 4th, especially to help our backer corp.
129 WR JOSH HUFF - Slot guy for O'Brien to scheme with.
161 S TRE BOSTON - Safety of the future, and possibly some CB play as well. Plus he went to a good school.
193 RB KAPRI BIBBS - Watched a few games of his this year and liked how he ran.

I would be satisfied with this draft. There just seemed to be better value and talent on defense in each of the rounds. I would have liked to get a OT, but that's the only thing I think I really missed.

I would love that draft. Zumwalt is severely underrated.

Default Re: Mock Draft Simulator

My latest. In this mock there was never an OT that wasn't a huge reach. Filling that 1 position in FA really will help our draft.

1
QB TEDDY BRIDGEWATER
LOUISVILLE, this pick needs no explanation.

33
S CALVIN PRYOR
LOUISVILLE, better Safety play I think will equal better CB play and secondary as a whole.

65
DE JACKSON JEFFCOAT
TEXAS, this pick moves Reed to ILB. Fixes 2 positions with 1 pick.

97
DT DAQUAN JONES
PENN STATE, finally an athletic big man to stuff the middle.

129
TE C.J. FIEDOROWICZ
IOWA, another weapon for TB and good blocking.

161
DE BRENT URBAN
VIRGINIA, 3-4 DE that needs some work but his problems are easily fixed with coaching and experience.

193
ILB JAMES MORRIS
IOWA, good size and great college productivity.

I'd be happy with this draft.

Not totally sold on Pryor but other than that slot, happy with everyone else. Curious about his ability to hold up in coverage. Swearinger + Pryor might equal a bunch of blown coverages.

Yeah really .... That RT spot was piss poor last season , so bad I have often contemplated going OT in the first. This is a first round talent in the second round. Very few scenario's where I wouldn't run to the podium with this pick.

Do you consider Robinson or Matthews at 1:1?

Or only in a trade down scenario?

For a long time I would have gone Matthews @ 1:1 .... mainly because I didn't like the QB's.


But ... the more I think about that flaming pile of turds that is the current QB situation , I've moved on from that.


I recall a while back McNair saying its possible for them to take a defensive player (I think that was more stating BPA than anything else) early and a QB later in the draft .... I almost bought into that idea but after a couple months evaluating the QB's (still pre combine) and the teams definite need at the position , I cant see that as being realistic.
Manziel & Bridgewater are significantly better than the field. I believe you have to take one of those two in the first (even if its after a trade down). Both of them have the potential to be "NFL Franchise QB's" who can put a team on his shoulders and will them to W's .... I cant say that about the field.
I think at best , the field will produce quality starters tho not capable of shouldering the load .... much like the guy who's quarterbacked this team for the last ~7 seasons. Guy's who you could get to the promised land with .... if everything falls just right.


For me , 1:1 comes down to Manziel & Bridgewater at this point in the process.
