Default Re: Fast Mock Draft 2.0

With the 20th overall selection in this years draft, the Houston Texans select:

Ryan Mathews
Running Back
Fresno State
5'11" / 218 lbs

The Texans were 30th in rushing last season, and one of those reasons was not having a legitimate running back. Steve Slaton being injured, partially caused massive turnovers and game changing results.

Mathews is a legit every-down back who can share carries with Slaton to give the Texans the 1-2 punch they have been desperately looking for since their inception as a franchise. Knows how to pass block, and can even get out in the flats and catch a pass. Will break tackles and get us the tough yards between the tackles that we so desperately need.

I also considered Kyle Wilson who was recently selected. Earl Thomas who has already been selected. Devin McCourty who is still on the board. Taylor Mays who is still on the board, but rates out as more of a SS. In the end I chose a player who would fill one of our biggest needs, and was the higher rated player on my board.

Never really considered Iupati in round 1 (even though he was just selected) since we signed Wade Smith, and have Mike Brisiel coming back. Possibly Chester Pitts as well.

I know people are split on this kid, but I felt like with my options available, fixing the RB position was the thing to do.

Actually with who was available you weren't exactly spoilt for choice. If your not feeling Pouncey, your kind of stuck with Mathews.

Default Re: Fast Mock Draft 2.0

Man this mock is really making me realize how much I'd like the Texans to trade down. The talent just isn't THAT much better than late 1st early second. I'd be leaning towards Mathews in this situation as well.

Sorry for the delay. I'll come up with a pick in a couple minutes.

Default Re: Fast Mock Draft 2.0

The Cincinnati Bengals select Sergio Kendle, LB from The University of Texas.



Wow, where do I begin? TE is a need and that's the most popular pick for us but I just can't bring myself to pick any of these TE's at 21 overall. FS could use an upgrade but Thomas is gone, Nate Allen seems to be a reach. Taylor Mays is a popular name for this selection, but I can't spend the 21st overall pick on a guy I'm not convinced is going to be a significant upgrade over Chinedum Ndukwe or Roy Williams at SS. DT could use a guy but Price is starting to worry me here and Odrick seems a bit overrated here. I really wanted to take Dez Bryant but feel like I need to pass since I just spent some capital on Antonio Bryant to pair with Ochocinco. Wasn't too keen on any OG prospects right here so... I chose Kindle because he's every much the athlete and prospect of anyone on the board. He can rush the passer, chase the ball carrier, drop into coverage and cover those TE's.

With the 22nd pick the Patriots take the BPA, who plays a need position, in Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State.

I was hoping he was going to keep falling all the way to the Jets. Hard to believe he lasted this long.

I feel your pain, these mid round picks have a lack of value for money.

I like Kindle, he'll find a way to contribute for them early and often.

I really like Atari Bigby, he and Mays make for a pretty rugged safety pairing.

With 25th pick, the Philadelphia Eagles select Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri



As the Eagles GM, I'm starting my second mock draft haul by selecting the best OLB in the draft, Mr. Whitey Tighties. While this doesn't solve all of our problems with the LB position, it's definitely a step in the right direction. Weatherspoon is a vocal leader with great size and speed. He's just the type of player we're looking for and we're very fortunate that he's still on the board at #25.
