1st. Teddy Bridgwater, QB, Louisville, 6025 209

I'm going to change his measureables off eyeball test but that doesn't change anything in my mind & that is he will still be the #1 rated QB on most NFL Big Boards & QB is the Texans most dire need.

2nd. Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee, 6060 332

No fudging the numbers needed here, he is all that maybe more? with his intentions now public that he is coming out early he should be graded out in the 28-34 overall range. RT with a franchise rookie QB ascends quickly to #2 need.

3rd. Greg Blair, ILB, Cincinnati, 6005 248

Splitting hairs but you know he will be working hard to run a hard 40 time. He is ascending player, could break into 2nd rd. & alot of us are desperate to upgrade ILB position, regardless of Cushing production moving forward. Big bang for rookie in position helps return defense back to elite. Reminds me of Willis.

4th. Ryan Carrethers, NT, Arkansas State, 6010 328

Physical frontline enforcer who can engage a Center & Guard allowing more space for teammates to penetrate & disrupt offensive flow. Strong, durable does have a good motor to develop. Expect local player, Earl Mitchell to resign.

5th. CJ Barnett, FS, Ohio State, 6000 203

Ohio State in BCS against Florida State? Stay tuned. But after game in Jacksonville who could blame me for bumping up Safety position. Space eater with range who is clean & willing hard worker.

6th. Antonio Andrews, RB/KR, Western Kentucky, 5-11 212

SEC battle tested went to combination back/returner. Leeds the nation in all purpose yardage with 218.3 yards per game. Use 7th in combination with 6th to move back up into 5th which Rick Smith has been known to do & this is optimum value pick. Also like to say Dennis Johnson is a nice developmental back in rotation.

7th. Rashaad Reynolds, CB, Oregon State, 5-10 187

Beavers are under rated OK, played against some great College QB's & Oregon State produces excellent ones. Really like Poyer last year thought he would go much higher than he did 7th so don't tell me Reynolds won't still be there. Regardless we need nickle & corner help this would be a good player to add on the Texan roster next season. Here is a short interview -

Love it. Especially picks 2 & 6. Andrews is my personal pick for late round sleeper this year at RB.

2 out of 7?

no luv for Teddy or Blair who both showed well last night?

what I love most about Teddy-
* soft hands
* quick feet 5 or 7 step drop
* can boot left as well right
* accurate arm, throws darts much sharper than Mariota who often floats the ball
* pocket awareness
* athletic ability
* strong arm
* can absorb a hit
* plus size for position
* long arms w/plus stiff arm
* heart
* targets players core strength in regards to windows so they can make athletic move
* plays under center in Pro Style

what Teddy needs to improve-
* recognizing coverage
* adding core strength
* more decisive in progressions
* needs to declare for the 2014 draft

but seriously, thank you for your positive feedback, tried to rep you must spread it around some more

i haven't done much scouting as i hardly have watched a single game of CFB this year but if those are indeed his weaknesses then it looks promising as those can easily be taught/trained.

Great pick by CJ Barnett. Ballhawk. Moved him up one round now looks like late 3rd early 4th. Lol

Haha was trying to keep it short and sweet.

I obviously like Bridgewater. I've been pretty open about that on this board. Is he a franchise guy? Hard to say, but I think he could be.

I'm a big fan of Richardson. I grade him higher than other people apparently because I have him as the #3 OT right now.

Not all that familiar with Blair. I think you could find more athletic ILB's at that part of the draft.

Not familiar with Carrethers, but I've seen quite a few people touting him on this board (most notably you). I agree that we need to address DT/NT so I like the pick.

I cannot be trusted to objectively grade Barnett....

Love Andrews. Think he will be a stud.

Not familiar with Reynolds. I agree that we need to address CB, but I think it should be a lot earlier.

All in all a great draft because we walk out with what we think is a franchise QB, a very good OT, and the other picks hit needs.

If you choose to be a scout (you have most of the attributes) you must dismiss alliances or conflicts of interests in respect to schools. Heck Braxton Miller is looking sweet. Texans could go Clowney then Miller in 2nd. Very impressive, but is he Texan Worthy?

I was only kidding with the Barnett comment. Was just playing my part as the Michigan fan. I actually liked his teammate Christian Bryant more, but he's been out all year with an injury.

Miller is extremely raw as a passer. He really needs to go back for his senior year.

Me too.

As SB likes to abbreviate:

1-1b & 2-2b
