Default 1/2 Through Mock

Assuming they pick around 22-25ish

1. Alameda Ta'amu 6'3 330 DT Washington

The two main weaknesses I see are NT and WR#2. I take Ta'amu being a better player than any of the remaining WR left (doubting Floyd makes it here). The only weakness I see out of the front 7 is the NT. Ta'amu is a big boy that would be a plug in the middle bolstering our run defense. Immediately start and make this already solid front 7 to potentially one of the best in the league.

2. Juron Criner 6'4 210 WR Arizona

This pick sures up the WR#2 spot and Criner has the potential to become the one when Andre is done. Has great size and hands. I watched him in the UCLA game and a few others and saw him go up and attack the ball. If Criner doesnt last til our pick I would not be against trading up to get him or taking a player like Sanu, Jones, Broyles.

3. Lucas Nix 6'6 305 OG/OT Pittsburgh

He is playing LT for Pittsburgh but projects more as a OG in the NFL. Would provide instant depth as a player who has the ability to be OT/OG. Could become a solid starter down the road.

4. James-Michael Johnson 6'2 240 ILB Nevada

With Darryl Sharpton going down we need ILB depth for the possibility that Demeco never gets back to what he used to be. Johnson is having a solid year for the Wolfpack. Could be a ST also.

5.Tony Jerod-Eddie 6'5 300 DE/DT Texas A&M

Provides solid DE depth who is a solid run stopper. Could be used as a rotational player.

6. Phillip Blake 6'3 320 OC/OG Baylor

Very solid player playing in a high powered offense. Solid in both run and pass protection. Has ability to play G or C so is a good player to have.

7. Traded for Mason

rep 4 your the 1st to post one @ the half-way mark, very heads up. Like your picks as well. I'm starting to believe Ta'amu (330lbs) will be off the board by the time Texans pick. Always the question if the big nose we seek is unavailable would the Texans look @ WR, CB or possibly ILB?

Its hard to predict where a player like Ta'amu will go off because he is really only valuable to 3-4 defenses. Most 4-3 defenses stay away from NT as DT. The WR available where the Texans will pick I dont see being worth a 1st round pick as of now. If Ta'amu was off the board and Wade thought he could use him it wouldnt surprise me if they went with Chapman.

I typed this out once already but the TT server went down temporarily so it just got alot shorter when I have to do it a 2nd time.

1. Ta'amu, great pick and he's 330 lbs.
2. Criner, also a great pick, him or Jones.
3. Nix, he needs to add some weight but at 6'6" that shouldn't be a problem. OT versatility is very good as well. Very good pick.
4. Johnson, I don't know anything about him but I like the position chosen and size. Good pick.
5. Eddie, should be some good DE depth, good position chosen and player for the position.
6. Blake, I've read that he's a developmental player but that's good in the 6th round. Good position and player chosen.

Overall very good mock and agree with you on Chapman possibly in the 1st round.

Thanks for the feedback. Yea I see the first round pick as of now coming down between Ta'amu and Chapman unless a stud falls down to us. Ta'amu is obviously the more desired NT because of his size but I will trust Wade if he thinks that he utilize Chapman better than Ta'amu
