Bah, I respect the work you've put into this, and I know you know more about these players than I do.

But if Detroit doesn't trade out of that top spot, I feel they would use their first three picks on defense.


Now, I know they just picked up two CBs, Anthony Henry, and Eric King, but they've got to get younger and faster on that side of the ball. I'm not saying they're set on offense, but If I were the Lions, I would sell out on defense.

They've got two first round tackles, they've got Culpepper & Stanton, they've got two first round WRs, a nice backfield, I know they've got issues, but they need so much help on defense it ain't funny.

I don't see the Texans selecting Matthews at 15. They can trade down at least 9-10 slots and still pick him up. You also have Miami drafting Sean Smith. I don't see that happening since he projects as more of a Safety than a Corner and they just signed Wilson and Bell to new deals. Don't like the Chung selection either. There's already a logjam at SS for the Texans.

Bah007's nice job as usual! Now Im going to cherry pick because thats what I do.

15.HOU Clay Matthews OLB, USC - Would really like to trade down and add an extra pick and try and get Mathews later but if we cant Im fine with him here.

46.HOU Victor Harris CB, Virginia Tech - This guy has been on my radar for awhile now. He's a versatile athlete who has seen time at cornerback, free safety, running back, wide receiver and as a returner on both kickoffs and punts. Hes a real playmaker. He had six interceptions last season, two for touchdowns, and he led the team with 14 passes defended. Good open-field tackler who can really lay the wood. Will come up aggressively in run support. This is the icing on the cake, he was the unquestioned locker-room leader VT.

77.HOU Jarrett Dillard - Rice - He becomes our Wes Welker. Enough said!

Victor "Macho" Harris is an ok corner I watched the combine and his hips were not fluid out of his brakes he didnt go get the ball at its highest point which is critical for someone that is 5'11 187 and at that weight his sub 4.7 forty wont cut it....

Jarrett Dillard would be a nice 5th rounder... to compare him to Wes Welker is a LITTLE extreme. I mean the guy came from rice sure he caught alot of tds but who was he playing?

One of us need to rewatch the combine because I remember him being very good at catching the ball at its highest point. You mention his slow 40 but did you notice his 20 yard shuttle? 3.98 thats better than Malcom Jenkins or Vonte Davis. Dont be fooled by near meaningless combine numbers. Besides are you judging the guy just from the combine? Have you seen him play? I have and the guy is a playmaker and has versatility to play several positions. Take a look at this quote. Its not about Harris can you guess who?

"In what is certainly not a coincidence, ______was isolated once again today on wide receivers and running backs in pass routes. And like the times before he provided tight coverage, jumping a few routes and defending passes. As one NFL scout with the N.Y. Giants said, "He's not the fastest but he sure is around the football all the time. In our business sometimes we focus on how they got there and not the fact that they got there. When it comes down to it, being there is what its all about. And it sure seems like ______ is always there."

Sound familar? By the way the blanks were DeMeco Ryans the best second round pick weve ever had and one of best players on this team. Luckily for us there were alot of GMs out there that think like you.

Now about Jarret Dillard. And I didnt say he was going to be as productive as Welker. I said he would be our Wes Welker. As in he would have a similar role as Welker. He would be our clutch sure handed slot WR. Youre right about him not playing alot of good competition but when he did he played his best. He caught 9 for a 158 yards against Texas lst year. With his impressive vertical and great hands he could be a very good slot WR. In fact I would go as for as saying he is in the top 2 or 3 best hands in this draft. Having said all that I will concede that he more likely will go in the 4th.

Hey having tried to do mocks in the past and getting board before the 1st round is over, I applaud the work that went into this. Great Job.

Not a Green fan, he is a little old for me. I like my RBs to be under 23 at draft time.

Chung is a SS but he cover better than any FS this team has had in the past. But I agree with you, I want my 2nd rounder on the field and I do not see him on the field this year.

Couple of guys in the pile I'm sure they're, the scouts, going to have to take a second look at. I banged Lydon Murtha pretty hard. Fact of the matter is, he lifted well ran the fastest forty of all the OL....and he fits the profile of what the Texans Mushroom king wants. Former TE....played several o-line positions. Unassuming. I think he could cover four of the five o-line spots. Would a south Carolina Owner pick a Clemson safety ? Pay him ? Only guy to post a sub 4.4, Safety no less. Go figgure. Scouts will be in the film room watching their body of work. The point being we're four weeks out and it's all still fluid.

I liked he first two picks. Although I still believe they will stick to what they've always done....Take DBs on the second day. If the mind think is contagious...you might just find yourself sitting in the second round with Malcome Jenkins sitting there at the Texans slot.
