Default ESPN Insider 7 rd Mock

Here is the link for the Insiders:

http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft...odd&id=2412607

For all others, here is the Texans picks (Mock):

1 - Bush
33 - Winston (OT Miami)
65 - Jean-Gilles (OG UGA)
66 - Ced Griffin (DC Texas)
98 - Will Blackmon (WR/DB BC)
134 - AJ Nicholson (OLB FLA St)
170 - Dale Robinson (ILB AZ St)
251 - Charlton Keith (DE Kansas)

Correct me if I am wrong, but don't we owe the Bengals a pick for Kevin Walter?? 6th rd or 7th rd??

I like that mock.....except for Bush (as you may know). OL help, DB & LB help/depth and DL depth.

I think Blackmon is one of the most underrated players in the draft. The kid has skills. He just hasn't had the chance to refine one position (DB & WR & RS throughout college career).

The 7th round pick they have (251) was a compensatory pick. They did give up their own to Cincy.

ESPN apparently did not give their 5th rounder to the Bills.

What are the odds that you get all of them right.

Does anyone believe that Winston will be there at the top of the 2nd round? I like him there, but I have a feeling he won't be there for us.

I'd be OK with every selection except Max Jean Giles. He's a MASSIVE guard and in no way seems to fit Kubiak's system.

Sometimes I wonder how much thought is really put into these picks or if it's just the best available player after a certain point.

gilles is a 1st round talent and if he's there in the 3rd you take him, i don't care if he fits the system or not.

That makes no sense. If he really is first round talent he should be long gone before the 3rd. And if he doesn't fit your system then how the hell is he going to contribute at a "first-round" level? Are we going to really change things up just because someone takes a free fall.

P.S. Who out there is refering to MJG as a first round talent? I've seen him pretty much universally a 2nd or 3rd rounder in every publication/website I have read.

The texans dont need the WR because we already have AJ, moulds, walter, and mathis. Also they should address a LB before the 5th round. The 7th round pick should probably be used for a project player instead of a career backup.

I'll pull my comments from the thread in the mock section about this same mock draft ESPN conjured up:
Quote:

Jean-Gilles is not a good fit for our blocking scheme and I guarantee you the Texans would not select him, I don't know why some of these mock draft places keep having us take him, I guess they don't pay attention to schemes. I don't really like the Will Blackmon pick, he's kind of a combo WR/CB that isn't particularly good at either spot, like a less-athletic Devin Hester, don't think he really adds anything to our team. A.J. Nicholson probably won't fall that far, and while I would like his talent on our team I'm not sure I want to add his off field problems to our locker room. Dale Robinson would be ok there, Charlton Keith is not a DE so I don't know why we'd draft him, he's definitely more of a LB. While I'm not going to complain about getting someone with a 7th round compensatory pick, I don't see us taking 3 LBs in a row. This mock seems to attempt to address some generic needs that our team has without thinking about how many of these guys fit into our current scheme and with our current roster, but that should be somewhat expected from people that have to try to figure out team needs/wants for all 32 teams.

My favorite part about that draft is big school, big conference. Sorry but it is hit and miss with tweeners and some teams get lucky. In general I want guys who have seen the big time.

Geez, how do you even predict past round 3? I know ESPN has all the resources in the world, but I think it's a reach to predict all 7 rounds.

Yep, after the first 2 rounds, there's no way to know who's going where...........

It's nearly impossible. I've seen people try to do it for years and years.

Winston is overrated. Bust written all over him. Would fit right in with our past drafts, though. Jean Gilles does not fit.

I hope this doesnt happen. Take the sure OT in round 1 and then you can get a very good LB in round two.
