13. Houston Texans: Janoris Jenkins, CB, Florida
The Texans have one of the worst defenses we've seen in a long time. So, how do you fix it?

First of all, Zach Diles needs to go. He's a horrific weakside linebacker who's a major liability in coverage. An upgrade at nose tackle is desperately needed. Two new safeties (particularly a free safety) have to be found. Another pass-rusher wouldn't hurt.

And then there's the cornerback position. Glover Quin cannot be allowed to start anymore. I don't even have any beef with his awful attempt to bat down David Garrard's Hail Mary; he can't tackle whatsoever, as evidenced by Zach Miller's 51-yard touchdown in the Jacksonville game.

Janoris Jenkins, the best player available who fills a need, would give Houston another top-flight corner across from Kareem Jackson. Hopefully Jackson isn't inept next year...

Pick change; previously Julio Jones, WR

44. Houston Texans: Drake Nevis, DT, LSU
Adding more talent to the defensive line is never a bad idea. The Texans had major problems at defensive tackle in 2009, but aside from drafting Earl Mitchell in the third round, they failed to address the position. They may fix things in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Drake Nevis is having a great year. I wanted to slot him toward the end of Round 1, but there are just way too many 3-4 teams now.

75. # Houston Texans: Sam Acho, DE, Texas
The Texans showed some interest in Aaron Schobel, but nothing really worked out. They then brought in Mark Anderson. Houston clearly wants help at defensive end.

Pick change; previously Pernell McPhee, DE

I like this mock better than the last in first but I have fallen away from Acho a bit. I like Winterswyck DE Boise in 5th. I do need to replace 4th round as my FS is injured. Can't make up my mind if I'd go DT or Cb in first and opposite in second. Probably will depend on who will be available. Auburn against Alabama should be interesting.

I like this draft much better than the last one but I worry about Nevis's lack of size and don't want Acho at all.

I love the comments from this guy, even outsiders realize that after 5 yrs. in the Kubiak system we're still starting terrible players.

Do you think we will go after a QB in draft to back up Schaub? I think Leinert will go to a better offer as a FA and if we re-sign Orslovsky, I just might scream.

We might pick up a QB in the draft but if we do it'll probably be very late, ie: 6th or 7th round. Someone to stick on the practice squad as emergency insurance. Andy Dalton-QB from TCU maybe.

Never say never especially if Schaub goes down & the Texans lose out rest of the way

That's odd as their own CB ratings has Jennings listed @ #8 behind Curtis Brown, Brandon Burton, Aaron Williams, Ras i Dowling and Brandon Harris #3. I am looking at Harris #1, Nevis #2 and move either QUin or KJ to FS.

I will give it a try.

1) Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State: provide more pass rush

2)Jeremy Beal, DE/OLB, Oklahoma : another pass rusher for situational DE

3) Alex Linnenkohl, C, Oregon State: help with the Oline

So, what do yall think?

Fair enough. I am hoping that if we are drafting around 15, that Fairly falls to us.

I doubt Fairley will fall to 15.

But there should be a really good DE/LB/S

Texans seem locked in a "comfort range" #15-#20. I like Paea & DT is always a huge need. Shaun Cody is going to be a free agent in 2011 do you resign him or draft somebody in the 1st/2nd rd. to replace him?

Texans would be lucky to get Beal in 2nd. He directly measures up with injured Connor Barwin. Both could also fit in a 3-4 as OLB's.

Linnenkohl is a bit of a reach this early. Your right, Texans need to look @ Center position for the future so I would have no problem selecting him in the 6th (last year took a shot with OG Shelly Smith who does have a future with this team). The big question I think the Texans face is will they resign Rashad Butler? He played well during Duane Browns suspension, think he made himself some money, will it be too much for Texans & if so I would look for them to find replacement in 3rd rd. I've been kinda locked on Villanova senior LT/OG Ben Ijalana who can also swing inside giving him more versatiltiy.

I like this mock a little.

But improving the S position is a must. IMHO

There should be a good one available in rds 3/4. Carter or Barron should be available in rd 3 and Hill/Black should be available in rd 4. They would be great value picks at this spot in the draft. As well as filling a glaring need. IMHO

Getting a pass rusher a is also a must and should be addressd in rds 1/2. IMHO Beal is a good player. But If I were picking Kerrigan or Herzlich would be my choice for playmaking OLB/DE in a 3/4 defense.

There are going to be some good NT'available in rds 4/5 this yr. Taylor from Baylor and my sleeper NT pick Dexter Larimore are real solid players. IMHO

Latest update from Walter. They've got us drafting #11 and are taking the following players.

1. Stephen Paea-DT Oregon St.
2. Bruce Carter-OLB UNC
3. Sam Acho-DE UTexas


I really like the first 2 picks both are excellent and would fill huge holes on defense but I dislike the 3rd pick. I don't see Acho ever being anything more than a backup/rotational DE and we've got plenty of bench warmers.

10 Houston Texans: Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State
The Texans have one of the worst defenses we've seen in a long time. So, how do you fix it?

First of all, Zach Diles needs to go. He's a horrific weakside linebacker who's a major liability in coverage. An upgrade at nose tackle is desperately needed. Two new safeties (particularly a free safety) have to be found. Another pass-rusher wouldn't hurt.

Stephen Paea is the best player on the board who would help improve Houston's defense. Paea is a 310-pound tackle who has 11 TFL and seven sacks on the year.

Other 2011 NFL Draft Possibilities:

1. Marcell Dareus, DT - I imagine that the Texans will be targeting Marcell Dareus. Unfortunately, he went off the board one selection earlier.

2. Ryan Kerrigan, DE - The Texans have no pass rush outside of Mario Williams. They may consider Ryan Kerrigan to be the best player available.


41. Houston Texans: Deunta Williams, FS, North Carolina
The Texans desperately need to address both safety positions this offseason. Free safety is more dire, as Eugene Wilson and Troy Nolan have both failed there.


72. Houston Texans: Sam Acho, DE, Texas
The Texans showed some interest in Aaron Schobel, but nothing really worked out. They then brought in Mark Anderson. Houston clearly wants help at defensive end.
