Default Bang the table!

Which prospects regardless of position, ranking or value do you love the most and would "bang the table" so to speak if you were in the war room of the texans.

Just to get something started :

Barr OLB
Mosley OLB/ILB
Amaro TE
Bortles QB
Andre Williams RB Boston college

I would bang the table for Clowney and depending on the new regime Barr.

Out of the rest of your list I like Bortles and Mosley. If the Texans traded down to 10 with the Browns I would love 1. Bortles 2. Mosley

I think Mosley is the best player in the draft, but Clowney is a physical freak that has the potential to be incredible and that gets people excited. I also love Barr because I think his ceiling is unlimited.

I love Justin Gilbert at CB, but one guy that I've scouted extensively is Ross Cockrell (CB) at Duke. He might have some of the best coverage skills in the draft but he's skinny and really needs to get bigger. Will struggle in run support and press coverage if he doesn't get stronger.

I've got to check out Cockrell.

What do you think of Belue?

CBS has him ranked 4/5th rd. I would take him in the late rd early 4th. He's small but fiesty. Would be a major upgrade over McCain.

I'd break the table in half for Clowney. Barring that, a trade down with Cleveland for CJ Mosley and Tajh Boyd.

I haven't watched much of Belue but I wouldn't say it's a stretch at all to peg him as a better slot corner than McCain.

Bortles, everything I have seen from this guy says franchise QB. I think Bortles is the one guy that says to me, don't trade back.

Mosley most "guaranteed" player in draft and can be had in trade down. I am working on new mock with ZBS possible changing.

Default Re: Bang the table!

There are a few guys I really like in this draft. Some might or might not fit on our team depending on the new regime, but I'll list my mancrushes in here.

Trey Millard - FB, H-Back, RB, TE, Oklahoma (will fall due to injury, doesn't play a valuable position but is a valuable player due to his ability to make an offense multiple)

Davante Adams - WR, Fresno St (makes Carr look better than he is, which is saying something)

C.J. Fiedorowicz - TE, Iowa (big blocking TE who runs smooth routes and has great hands)

Tyler Larsen - OC, Utah St (not a need position but a very underrated prospect)

Kyle Van Noy - OLB, BYU (complete player who is a force as a pass rusher)

Justin Gilbert - CB, Oklahoma St (maybe the best athlete in this draft)

Marcus Williams - CB, North Dakota St (best player on the two-time, about to be three-time, defending FCS champs)

Adams, Van Noy, and Gilbert all rate as 1st round prospects but these other guys could be had outside the first round.

"Funny how the night moves.." I am now going with a QB with a trade down with Cleveland whom I think wants Bridger. I am just not sold on Carr who many have going to Jags. I think Hundley will remain in school and see only Bridgewater, Carr and one other QB in top ten. I think Manziel will be somewhere after that. I still like Keenum but for now think we have to draft a QB. Fortunately, we have more games to evaluate him. Mosley is the best but there are just so many ILBs that could start for Texans in day two and three: Skov, Smallwood, Christian Jones, Blair and my old friend Andrew Jackson whom I am considering again as I can get him late and he is a run stopper.

Mosley is undersized (small) ILB, wouldn't be surprised if he falls out of 1st rd. May not be a 3 down player

Based on pure talent he would be a top 5 pick, but the ILB position is not a premium draft position. The fact that he is considered a top 10 prospect is a testament to his talent.

who said todd mcshay?

what i see in mosley:
Instincts
Athleticism (i.e. speed agility)
plays well in the run game even with his "small" size - proof by being the leading tackler for his team
as good as they come in pass coverage for a ILB
has played multiple positions or roles for Alabama from MLB to OLB blitzing the QB.
has excellent tackle technique wrapping up really well.
Stay low on hits and trying to shed blocks, has fluid hips in pass coverage.

obviosuly he has weakness, he needs to gain weight and a bit more strength because sometimes struggles with shedding blocks but that isn't is game so I'm not to worried about that.

In terms of intangibles from what i read his been a strong leader for his Bama team for a while now and shows great work ethic and high football IQ in the film room.
