He had a few problems in his Sophmore year, nothing really major, just overreacting on the field. I don't think he got arrested or was in trouble with the law. Did he have any problems last year? I think the Sophomore incident is whats keeping his stock down but he's had a year to mature past that and has grown up a bit.

Once again, that incident was in his Sophomore year, I think he grew up a bit after that incident. Did he have any problems last year? If my behavior was judge by my employer when I was a Sophomore, I'd still be washing cars like Fiddy!

If we're handicapping Vinny's pick, I'd put Demarcus Ware as the favorite with Cedric Houston as a darkhorse.

I say he goes with either TE Kevin Everett out of Miami, or he picks up Barrett Ruud LB Nebraska.

You can tell Lucky has read a few of my posts. I lived up in TN for a while and became a bit of an SEC fan, so I follow Ole Miss quite a bit and have really liked Houston when I have gotten a few glimpses of him. TN backs have done pretty well in the NFL over the years and Houston has great size and speed.

Also, Ware passed my bean bag/sing-along agility test with high marks...had to take him.

I heard that the Texans passed on Shawn Andrews last year because during the 2.5 hour test he ate the beanbag.

Can't blame the big guy. A man gets hungry answering questions all day. Mmmm beanbag.

great job everyone making your selections, I think this is the best "with trades" Mock draft out there. Proud to be a Texan

sesupergenius- I like what you've done with that trade to the Packers. You've picked up a young CB, while still raw, eventually may prove to be a more productive pro in the long run than Rolle and to add insult to injury chose the one QB I've heard rumored to be the Packers choice in the 1st rd (Charlie Frye). I'm keeping a close eye on you

The Detroit Lions are looking to trade down from the #52 pick. PM me with an offer, if you're interested.

I know I picked the guy for the Saints, but does Darryl Blackstock seem suitable if Houston was able to nab him in the 2nd? Great pass rusher, improved against the run, pretty good speed to cover and played in a 3-4 at Virginia. Would he be able to play Foremans ILB spot? (I think he was OLB in college?)

Based on this profile from NFLDraftCountdown,

Quote:
Weaknesses: A liability versus the run...Not a natural in coverage...Lacks fluid hips...Doesn't change direction well...Plays in a 3-4 defense that is perfectly tailored to his skills and may need to be in a similar scheme in the pros.
it doesn't seem to me he'd be a prototype ILB...

i doubt he goes 2nd round to the Texans, maybe later in the 2nd like to the Saints. if he is still around later in the 3rd they might, just depends on who they already drafted. from what I see the Texans will target one of the top linebackers off the board early so there will probably be other needs to be addressed at that time.

If there's a player you're interested in at the Colts pick (#60), let me know soon.

Steel Blue, if you're interested in my pick let me know now. If Fiddy gives me the go ahead, I'm making the pick and getting this mock rolling.
