13. Houston Texans Shawne Merriman, DE/LB, Maryland Comment: The Texans will be crushed if Alex Barron isn't around for this pick, and they might seriously consider a cornerback like Antrel Rolle or Carlos Rogers here as well. However, after giving both Jay Foreman and Jamie Sharper their walking papers this offseason, it would be extremely difficult for Dom Capers not to add Merriman's pass-rushing skills to his defense. With Jason Babin, an early pick last year, on one side and Merriman on the other, Capers would finally have the talent to unleash his pet zone blitz schemes.
I think the Texans couldn't care less if Barron is around come 13, and we may consider a CB, but Merriman trumps that possibility...Foreman is gone, but Sharper is still here, and adding Merriman would have nothing to do with Foreman or Sharper...Furthermore, this mock looks rather unprofessional due to the misspelled names of such players as Cedrick Benson and Derek Johnson...Despite liking the pick, I've got to give this mock a big ...

If you don't have the talent on your roster already, the draft is the best way to get good, promising young players for cheap prices...Many of the LBs we signed will be camp fodder...It's not like half of our roster is going to be LBs...

I'd be ecstatic if we drafted Merriman. He or DJ or Ware would be great.

He didnt have any Draft day trades which there are bound to be a few I look for Atlanta to move up and make a run at Williamson to help out Vicks passing woes.

And after the Big Names its a serious drop off in talent. So its not out of the realm we will trade down stockpile picks and add depth across the board in later rounds.

Ware will be there in late 20's or 2nd round. If he had went to a big school he prob would be a 1st rounder.
