Most of you regulars will know my mocks seldom follow the crowd and often offer controversial selections. I do try to document my reasoning behind each and look forward to suggestions or criticism. I think it is easy to call your shot on a player but I like to keep each within realm of possibility and use CBSSports/nfldraft rankings. Please remember these fluctuate almost weekly. Until Monday night apprx midnight, I had been tooting horn for Alabama QB McCarron who imo is most pro ready (that should be there when we pick). I came to the conclusion that despite fan outrage (including mine), Schaub is not going anywhere unless it is IR. Yes, he has dumb plays but so do Brady and Manning and they will not be on our roster. Also, I think Keenum is MS heir apparent & is being groomed for that by Kubiak. Links provide good info for true draftniks. 1. #23 CB Jason Verrett TCU 5'10" 176 sub 4.5 2013: 16 T 1 sack This ball hawking cover corner has good swivle with smooth hips. 2012: 63 T, 46 solo, 5 TFLs, 16 breakups & 6 INTs. ranked # 18 eventual replacement for Joseph.

Perfect fit for Texans scheme and day one starter IF Newton does not get better. I see LT Brown/Harris LG Q Center Jones RG Brooks RT Newton & Oggy with Williams backup. Oggy can back up both OGs. Ranked # 52 3. #87 Safety Ahmad Dixon Baylor 6' 205 4.39 (link baylorbears.com) can play either side and nickle CB. 2013: 17 T 2012: 102 T, 1 sack, 2 INTs Eventual replacement for Manning and he is good in coverage as well as attacking line. Ranked #106 4. #119 OLB/ILB Lamin Barrow LSU 6'1" 235 was predicted by coach to replace Minter @ MLB but teammate DJ Welter has allowed Barrow to remain OLB 2013 (so far). http://nflmocks.com/2013/09/28/2014-nfl-draft-lamin-barrow-lb-lsu-tigers-scouting-report-page/ http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=90673&draftyear=2014&genpos=OLB 2013: 30 Ts, .5 sack 2012 OLB: 104 Ts, 7.5 TFL, 5 pass breakups.
