Re: BL Mocks Texans Post 2011 Senior Bowl
First Round: Julio Jones, WR, Alabama, 6040/211
BPA. He can help Andre taking off double teams/heavy workload/targets so maybe he can make it through a full season. In turn, Andre can help Julio by mentoring him on match-ups, game film study & tricks of the league to bring our new JJ up to speed quickly.
Second Round: Aaron Williams, CB/RET, Texas, 6010/195
Highly graded DB who could still be on the board early 2nd rd. Has the talent to be a starting CB which would give Texans a solid, young & talented duo @ CB. Adds extra value as retun man something Texans are going to need if Jacoby moves along in FA & Slaton is not quality return material.
Third Round: Sione Fua, NG, Stanford, 6016/307
More & more it seems the Texans will select their NG here in the third round where several should be available (Ellis, Powe, Williams) along with Taylor stock rising top of 1st. round. All the Texans really need is a smart, space eater, who can collapse the pocket & occupy two lineman & Sione while not massive is strong enough to hold the point.
Fourth Round: Dontay Moch, OLB, Nevada, 6010 230
Very raw, but has the tools speed/strength combination Texans are looking for outside to fit new 3-4 scheme. Wade watched him practice all week @ Shrine game & could sign off draft day if still available?
Fifth Round: Joe Lefeged, S/RET, Rutgers, 6010 205
Personal favorite, competitive, well coached, excels special teams could allow Texans to clear roster of disappointing (Barber/Molden) safeties/cb's. He has better closing speed than Nolan, very physical line of scrimmage, practices hard & could be Texans starting SS if Pollard leaves too via FA?
Sixth Round: Akeem Dent, LB, Georgia, 6020/233
Return of a player who stands out on tape playing next to one of the eltie OLB's Justin Houston. If Texans don't go Julio & take Houston instead, this would make even greater sense. Also would be a steal in the defensive heavy draft.
Seventh Round: Justin Trattou, OLB, Florida, 6040 255
Very athletic, DE conversion to OLB prospect. Could go undrafted & picked up by another NFL team or make a name for himself in CFL then command a much bigger contract.
2012 Draft was Mercilus
