Well, Going by your draft scenario, I would draft the Texans as such...

D'Brick
Davin Joseph(to play RG)
Will Allen
James Allen

so you suggest no stand out defensive players? no TE? no ILB?

if pope is taken before we pick, hold out hope for olsen from miami next year or this if he enters.

other wise i would probally ****** a brick if this draft happened.

I wouldn't take a TE in the second round anyways, we have bigger needs to fill with a high second round pick.

wow nice effort I like it, sure it would be easy to change a few names here and there but excellent job

one thing alot of fans will complain about is not trading down and still drafting D'Brick, but with the no trade clause (other than existing trades from previous years) there is no sense in getting cute with the 1st pick and passing on a franchise LT no one in their right mind would harp on the Texans for doing that (unless a Bush fan).

having addressed the OL with the 1st pick does open some other options & I sure hope the Texans keep their second pick this year Davin Joseph the big Oklahoma guard would also be an excellent choice, because by the look of things both McKinney and Wiegerts days are numbered so the Texans need to reload and improve in this area now. so this would net you a 2006 line of D'Brickashaw Ferguson LT, Pitts LG, Hodgdon C, Joseph RG & Wade RT.

third round I like the idea of addressing the safety position, Coleman is also soon to be gone so I would also add the names of Daniel Bullocks, Nebraska or Darrell Brooks Arizona into the mix, both are physical good in pass & run support. the second of two 3rd picks I would like to slightly alter but along the same lines defensivly address the pass rush. we need a designated, intimadator you can get the QB and since you just happen to have one of the best in draft still on the board I say the Texans go ahead and draft DE Elvis Dumervile, Louisville. seriously I doubt he is still available but we can always dream, while not a 3-4 guy the Texans use alot of four man fronts in passing downs or different packages so he would still get several chances in the course of a game to register a sack. he has Freeney like moves, could be one of those draft day steals.

I think Jason Allen is a standout defensive player no?

Yes, we do need TE help. However we need offensive line help even more. Davin Joseph is a franchie type Guard in my opinion.

I agree pretty much with your assesment. Dumervile is my top choice for defense, but we should be able to pick him up later because he doesnt fit a certin physical mold.

Threat is a push to me with Dwayne Slay from Tech.

The more i think about it though, we may not need a tight end because i dont feel we properly know how to utilize one. Maybe one more try for Bennie or an inexpensive FA?

once again great job with your mock draft, I can't believe you did that whole thing, I know it must of took alot of time and effort.

just a couple things.

1st Elvis Dumervil, I don't believe its realistic that he makes it to the 3rd rd.
Although he is a natural 4-3 DE on the small size for NFL he also projects to the 3-4 as a OLB. does anyone here think that he is any less explosive getting to the QB than Babin? I see no reason not to put him in the same class as Shawn Merriman and DeMarcus Ware as far as his ability to force turnovers at the line and sack the QB. He is only 6' 0" tall but built for speed, leverage and strength 255 lbs (remember Dwight Freeney 6'1" 266 lbs)
as a matter of fact they share similar profiles Well-proportioned athlete with a thick upper body and torso … Has superb open-field quickness and acceleration coming off the snap … Gets instant penetration as a pass rusher, showing proper hand technique, combined with an array of rip-and-swim moves to explosively close on the quarterback now does this sound like he would still be there in the 3rd rd. to you? I would not complain if he was mind you since the Texans have never had this type of pass rusher but it would take that 2nd rd. pick at best to aquire his services. oh yeah for all those who think he could not play LB in the NFL he was recruited by Miami to be a LB but when told he would have to redshirt his freshmen year he deceided on Louisville.

to me the TE position is more of a luxury pick with the Texans need to shore up protection for David Carr and develop a pass rush. not to mention a more physical secondary and run support. So I would also like to see if Bennie Joppru can play? then if not address it by going after the best prospect in 07-08.

I think, and i hope we will be switching to an "official" 4-3 by years end. While we lack the personel for either scheme, we have more that is suited for the 4-3 in my opinion. Babin can stay at OLB, but peek and Dumervile would be perfect ends for the 4-3. They are explosive, pass rushing beast. I agree that after the season is over, a team will take him in the second, i just hope it is us. How does the OG position look after Giles and Joseph?

man this is such a tough choice, at least this year hopefully we keep our 2nd & 3rd rd picks. I really would not complain about any of them. its a damn shame the Texans have not been building the OL since the beginning now we are left with this huge chasim that needs filling. my gut feeling is we need to use both top picks to address protection and control of the offensive line. so if I get the choice I would select Joseph he is not quite as big as Gilles but he is faster with better footwork and probably less injury prone. I would also love a serious pass rushing threat, someone who could create turnovers. so this is the silver lining in an otherwise down year for the Texans

i feel you beer, but i am still pretty sold on giles. and if we didnt need a LT and ILB i would be getting criticized for saying take dumervile in the first...(after trade downs of course) I just feel he is the real deal and a playmaker.

How does DeAngelo Williams go before Laurence Maroney? Packers need to move up. WAY up.

Williams and maroney are a toss up. Williams doesnt have all the stats,but projects as a better back in the pros.

the packers are at 4. that is high enough. farve will pull a few wins out.

I see no reason not to put him in the same class as Shawn Merriman and DeMarcus Ware as far as his ability to force turnovers at the line and sack the QB. He is only 6' 0" tall but built for speed, leverage and strength 255 lbs (remember Dwight Freeney 6'1" 266 lbs)
as a matter of fact they share similar profiles Well-proportioned athlete with a thick upper body and torso … Has superb open-field quickness and acceleration coming off the snap … Gets instant penetration as a pass rusher, showing proper hand technique, combined with an array of rip-and-swim moves to explosively close on the quarterback
I just read a brand new assesment (Drew Boylhart, The Huddle Report) of Elvis Dummervil and I was surprised how closely it related to my own, but I'm not sure I would go this far- "He is stronger and much more technically mature than Dwight Freeney was when he was the 11th pick of the 2002 draft!"

I wouldnt go that far. He is producing more, but is not more technically mature. I still believe he will be in the same mold as freeny and DESERVES a second round pick, but should slide to the third.

How do you guys keep track of all these players in college? I love football and all, but that seems like a full time job.

I'm only going to focus on your 1st round and Texan picks since I'm running a little short on time...

As good as D'Brick may be, I don't see 1st overall pick material when I look at him...I'd rather trade down with a team like Green Bay, who would want to move up to get Reggie Bush...We could then still get Brick with the 4th pick and have extra picks to play around with...Oh, and Brick plays for Va not Va Tech...

Hawk will not go 3rd overall...He is on the same level as Derrick Johnson, but Johnson fell to 15...Since 1997, there has been exactly 1 LB taken in the top 5 (Lavar Arrington, 2000)...The Saints obviously need LB help, but they could trade down and get it...

Winston hasn't shown me enough to warrant being a top 10 pick...Let's face it, if Winston is the 6th overall pick, then Kamerion Wimbley needs to be the 1st overall pick, since he completely owned Winston...

The rest of your first is pretty solid, I guess, though I doubt Lendale White comes out after this year...

As for your Texan picks, I like Brick, Pope, and Roach, but I'm not too high on Threat...If my make believe trade down were to occur, we could take Brick, Pope, Davin Joseph, Roach, Jason Allen, and Dumervil...Definitely a nice start to the future of this franchise, IMO...

well another thing to look at is who is on the last year of their contract. I am about 99.999% sure we are going O-line with our 1st pick. I do think we need a TE, LB and S. I like Wade,Weigert,Hodgdon,Pitts i think finding that 5th will ceal our starting O-line. I do however think we should spend a 3rd or a 4th on a good backup O-line. I think with Mathis i think we can let Bradford go and be good at WR. Carr will be better with an o-line infront of him. We do need a TE like i said. I am not sure about DL because i am not sure if any of their contracts are up but depth is good. LB we need a good SLB just incase Babin doesnt fit. I think we need a CB because Buchannon isnt cutting it. I do think we need a FS to groom for Coleman's replacement.
