    Updated Mock as of today...

    Not sure I like the idea of the Texans passing on:

    Mangold
    Winston
    Ryans

    in the second round. Either one of those guys would be great at the top pf the second round (prefer an OL, you can never have enough)

    With the moves in free agency, they can use the #33, #65, & #66 to add, perhaps exclusively, some O-lineman and secondary prospects.

    I agree Toro,I think they will use #33 on a CB/S, and #65,#66, on OL, and DB. Denver has had good success with mid to late RD OL picks.:twocents:

    I think them taking Sinorice with #33 is assuming that we do NOT acquire Moulds or Walker. I think we will get the Moulds deal done & take Winston or Mangold with #33. If not, I think this may be right on with Moss.

    I will tell you right now regardless if Moulds or whoever is brought in we will not draft Sinorice Moss with the first pick of the Second round. If Winston is there he will be drafted, and If he is not which is more likely Mangold will be drafted. Demeco Ryans we likely would not draft anyway he is a mid second rounder anyway.

    Yeah, they'd still be in the hunt for a receiver in some round. But if they turn that 4th rounder into Moulds, then that simplifies the 2nd and 3rd rounds significantly. They can take the best O-lineman to drop out of the 1st round with pick #33. Then they can use #65 and #66 to work on the secondary. Perhaps they could deal up if they find someone they like.

    I would also add Cromartie and possibly Ko to that list.

    Even though we have Putzier, what if Pope falls into the 2nd round. Any chance we trade down 10 spots or so in the 2nd and pick up a low 3rd maybe? I like anyone who's 6'7", can run and catch...of course, I like Mangold too!

    Thoughts?

    Putzier will be solid in my opinion. I would rather use #33 on a bigger need. I know I preach about taking a guy for talent & the best player available, but Winston & Mangold is what I would use. I like Pope. A Lot. I am a UGA fan & I would love to see him here though.

    I'd be upset if they passed on either of them as well. I think Moss will be just as explosive as his older brother. IMO

    If any of these slip to #33, they should be the pick IMO:

    Joseph-OG
    Wimbley-DE
    Cromartie-CB

    Based off that mock, I would take Bush, Mangold, Wilkerson, and Manning...

    Davin Joseph and Wimbley are not worth the #33 pick. Both deserve a third round grade IMO. Cromartie will go right around our pick I think, but he is a risk.

    Perhaps not a bad idea, but their #33 is at the top of the 2nd round. That places them in a nice spot to be able to nab someone who's fallen out of the 1st round. If they can get who they want at #33 at #43 or so, then yeah, it'd be nice to be able to pick up an extra 3rd rounder.

    Right now it would seem that he's going to go early in the 2nd round.

    I think Winston will be gone in the mid-1st, as of right now he's the 2nd best OT in the draft and I've heard there are a lot of teams in the mid-late 1st that really like him (Dolphins, Cowboys among others), so I don't see him falling to #33, but I'd love it if he did.
