    I’ve never gotten into all the draftnik stuff like many here do.
    I came across a mock draft on draftinsider.net with the following selections for the Texans.

    The only one I have heard mentioned here is our #1. What about the rest of them?

    Any opinions? There were only 5 rounds posted.

    1. Prince Amukamara CB/Nebraska
    2. Jerrel Jernigan WR/Troy
    3. Chris Nield NT/West Virginia
    4. Joe Lefeged S/Rutgers
    5. Chykie Brown CB/Texas

    I'm not a big fan of this draft. We need at least 1 OLB that can rush the passer. I don't want to address our CB issues by getting younger and drafting 2 CBs would kinda tick me off unless one of them was being looked at for FS.

    Jernigan had a great pro-day and helped his stock. I hadn't seen him going before the 3rd prior to this but now he's looking like a second round guy now. He's really, really fast. But I don't expect us to go WR that early in this draft. Jernigan in the 3rd wouldn't be so hard to swallow and after his pro-day would be a steal.

    I think Neild is a later round guy. I wouldn't mind him in the 6th or 7th rounds. In the third, I'd expect Fua or Powe and I'm hoping for Kenrick Ellis to fall to us.

    I would love to get Lefeged. Just not too early.

    Chykie Brown kinda scares me. He needs a lot of work but he's a very talented corner. I wouldn't mind taking a flyer on him in the 6th or 7th rounds. But he's not a corner I'd expect to be on the field in the next couple of years. But if we take him in the 5th after spending a 1st on a CB... I'd be pissed.

    I have Brown in 5th also and am afraid if the Prince is there @11 he will be taken.

    Thanks all.

    I don't research players like many here do and was just interested in getting opinions.

    It was mostly defensive players which seems to be the way most here are leaning. Can't understand why that is..:shades:.

    Does anyone here track these mocks yearly to see who is the best with their guesses?

    I don't think anyone's really all that close. At least not consistently and not past the first round. There are too many variables and the trades throw everything off. Every team has their own strategies and approaches and their own grades for all the players.

    For me, I just try to read as much as I can so that when the draft is happening, I'm at least somewhat familiar with most of the names and I have a feel for where the players are generally expected to go.

    But every year, there are teams like the Jaguars taking Tyson Alualu in the first when none of the mocksters expected him to be drafted before the middle of the second or possibly third round. And teams like the Raiders taking guys expected to go undrafted in the 2nd.
