Default NFLdraftcountdown updated mock Jan. 16...finally

It's about time they updated this thing..

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/sub/mockdraft.html

1. Jamarcus Russell to Oakland

8. Adrian Peterson to Houston

This means some good people should fall to us in the 2nd round.

They traded them away. I don't think it makes much difference to Washington since their off season is all about FA acquitions any way. Snyder doesn't care about money.

I was going to paste it for you hulk, but now it's not opening for me either. It was a solid mock with good long explanations for each pick.

8. HOUSTON TEXANS
Quote:
ADRIAN PETERSON RB | Oklahoma | Scouting Report
Some may be surprised to see Peterson fall this far but not only is it possible but at this point it's almost likely. While nobody doubts his phenomenal talent there are some major durability concerns with Peterson, who was never even able to make it through a full college season without getting hurt and missing time. There are few things that will frustrate a team more than an injury-prone running back which is why he's still on the board here. The Texans actually already have a solid running back with durability problems in Domanick Williams (formerly Davis) but he's coming off a major injury and can't be counted on at this point and they certainly can't go into another season expecting the likes of Ron Dayne, Wali Lundy and Samkon Gado to carry the load. Some may counter that Gary Kubiak comes from the Denver system and doesn't believe in using first round picks on runners but they failed to turn the also-rans they had into studs like the Broncos consistently do and Peterson is a rare prospect. Bringing in a local hometown hero like Peterson might also alleviate some of the pain the Houston fan base feels and help eliminate some of the ill will that has been aimed at the franchise since they took a pass on Vince Young.

The write-up on Peterson sounded more like "why the Texans shouldn't draft him."

Yes, Mr. Wright. Palestine is just next door to Houston. That's if you live about 170 miles from your next door neighbor. Simliar to the Jets drafting a "hometown hero" out of Philly. BTW, I thought the Texans were supposed to be ridiculed for passing over Reggie Bush? I wish these draft experts would get their stories straight.

They've done quite a bit of homework and therefor give some support to their
take, though as Lucky pointed out Palestine, TX is hardly a Houston suburb.

It's working now. Scot Wright does an excellent job. Great site. At two JT is way too expensive to go get that's for sure.

Yeah but if you are doing a mock draft you are doing what you think will happen. Most teams draft based on need. I think it is pretty accurate. Especially the top 5.


I see JaMarcus going to the Raiders and Quinn going to the browns. For some reason I just picture it that way in my mind.

Default Re: NFLdraftcountdown updated mock Jan. 16...finally

I couldn't copy and paste the whole thing..hopefully its working better now we can see it..I'll do it long hand so people don't have to go to it. I think its a pretty good mock. Also if you click on Scouting Report in the top right corner of each person/pick...it has some good things about their strengths, weakness, and notes....not all players are finished I don't think.

I bolded the players I could see the Texans drafting if 1)they fell to us 2)or we traded down a few spots. These imo are the most talked about players for us drafting in the 1st.

1.Oakland------------JAMARCUS RUSSELL
2.Detroit -------------JOE THOMAS
3.Cleveland-----------BRADY QUINN
4.Tampa Bay---------CALVIN JOHNSON
5.Arizona-------------ALAN BRANCH
6.Washington---------GAINES ADAMS
7.Minnessota----------JAMAAL ANDERSON
8.HOUSTON-----------ADRIAN PETERSON
9.Miami----------------AMOBI OKOYE
10.Atlanta-------------LEON HALL
11.San Francisco------TED GINN, JR.
12.Buffalo-------------LEVI BROWN
13.St. Louis-----------LAWRENCE TIMMONS
14.Carolina------------LARON LANDRY
15.Pittsburgh----------ADAM CARRIKER
16.Green Bay----------MARSHAWN LYNCH
17.jacksonville---------COLT BRENNAN
18.Cincinnati-----------DEMARCUS TYLER
19.tennessee----------DWAYNE JARRETT
20.New York (G)-------DARRELLE REVIS
21.Denver-------------QUENTIN MOSES
22.Dallas---------------REGGIE NELSON
23.Kansas City---------QUINN PITCOCK
24.New England (SEA)--MARCUS MCCAULEY
25.New York (J)--------DAYMEION HUGHES
26.Philadelphia---------MICAEL GRIFFIN
27.New Orleans--------PAUL POSLUSZNY
28.New England--------DWAYNE BOWE
29.Baltimore-----------JARVIS MOSS
30.San Diego----------SIDNEY RICE
31.Indianapolis---------PATRICK WILLIS
32.Chicago------------JUSTIN BLALOCK

Players not in the first round here that may fall to us in the 2nd that would be interesting to pick up....comments please? (w/ Peterson as our pick...or w/o..who then )

-Brandon Meriweather FS Miami
-Charles Johnson DE Georgia
-Victor Abiamiri DE Notre Dame
-Brandon Mebane DT California
-Chris Houston CB Arkansas
-H.B. Blades LB Pittsburgh
-Buster Davis LB Florida St.
-Rufus Alexander LB Oklahoma
-Earl Everett LB Florida
-Antonio Pittman HB Ohio St.
-Ryan Kalil C Sothern Cal

some may be 3rd rds...some may be gone by us in 3rd...who else am i missing...I know some OL

AP in the 1st and Meriweather in the second would be a great start to the draft IMO. I wouldn't be upset if it wound up J. Anderson and Meriweather either.

Default Re: NFLdraftcountdown updated mock Jan. 16...finally

I think our first 3 rounds that would make the most impact for us is:

1. Adrian Peterson
2. Brandon Meriweather
3. Ryan Kalil

1. Will he fall to us? maybe!..if he does..do we pass?!
2. He may be taken late 1st...before us in the 2nd (Arizona?) or in the 3rd rd.
3. Could be taken late first? Most likely wont last to us with our 3rd..but I'd hope so.

We would still need to look at other OL (FA and 2nd day), CB (doubt FA, some sleeper from small school?), LB (pick up a stud (2nd day), DT (FA? maybe in 4th?

Lot of positions...one of each there would be all our picks...let's start looking at 2008 draft! only kidding, we'll wait till 2007 week 3 or 4 i'm guessing!

On one of the thread I was reading yesterday on NFL Draft count down, Scott Wright said there is shortage of OT in this draft and all the OT will be gone by top 1/3 of the second round.

He believes, there is plenty of team who needs OT this year and some will reach to draft 3rd round value in 2nd round.

31.Indianapolis---------PATRICK WILLIS

If he fell that far I would really consider trading up for him. Ya I know we have to many needs to trade up. But still I would consider it.
