    Texans:

    #1. Teddy Bridgewater – QB, Louisville, 6-2 214
    - Very NFL-ready QB prospect. Efficiently and effectively ran a pro-style offense in college. Ahead of the game as far as his ability to read the defense pre-snap and get his team in the correct play. Makes his reads quickly and gets the ball out quickly. Deadly against the blitz. Athletic enough to buy time but always keeps his eyes downfield. Very accurate passer with great touch. His release point is lower than I would like but I can deal with it. He’s not prototypical size but he has shown toughness and durability in the past. Hands are acceptable size but smaller than you would like. His downfield accuracy leaves a little to be desired but I think it’s a fixable issue. High floor, likely to be a solid game manager at worst. High ceiling as well, as a cerebral franchise QB who can pick apart defenses quickly and efficiently from the pocket.

    #2. Morgan Moses – RT, Virginia, 6-6 314
    - Great size with long arms that he uses effectively. Uses his hands well. Has good feet and flexibility. Can keep a speed rusher from getting to the edge. Moves well in small areas but not a fantastic athlete. Very strong. Good run blocker in the interior. Not good in space. Misses blocks in the run game that he has to reach for. Limited athleticism shows when he is asked to move. With improved technique he has very high upside at RT.

    #3. Yawin Smallwood – ILB, Connecticut, 6-2 246
    - Long frame with long arms for an inside linebacker. Uses those arms well to avoid and get off blocks. Good tackler in space who wraps up. Fluid athlete who is effective in coverage. Shows raw undeveloped skills as a pass rusher. Sometimes overruns plays. Could add some more weight to his frame without sacrificing athleticism. Not a thumper. He tackles well but it’s by technique and not brute strength. Has a lot of experience. Would be a great fit as a 34 ILB who is asked to play coverage and rush the passer.

    #4. Jeremiah Attaochu – OLB, Georgia Tech, 6-3 252
    - Long body with long arms for his size. Has good range and can make plays from side to side. Quick, athletic, flexible pass rusher. Not strong against the run but he has improved. Doesn’t get off blocks very well. Very raw football IQ. Gets lost often. Great fit as a 34 edge rusher who can pin his ears back but occasionally play in coverage.

    #5. Phillip Gaines, CB – Rice, 6-0 193
    - Explosive athlete. Showed great man coverage skills his final year of college. Sticks with his man and routinely gets his hand on the ball, but needs to get better at turning that into INTs. First team all-conference his final two years. Relies on his athleticism too much because he is a far superior athlete than the WRs he covered. Not a great tackler and doesn’t like to attack blockers. Very little exposure to pro style route concepts or passing attacks. Huge mental curve coming up for him. Raw skill is there but will need a lot of development. Good fit in a scheme that uses more man coverage than zone. Should start out as a #3 or #4 corner who only plays in man coverage. With the right development he could be a #1 CB or at least a solid #2.

    #5 (comp). Wesley Johnson – OG, Vanderbilt, 6-5 297
    - Lean athlete who played tackle in college but has short arms. Fantastic athlete at his size. Moves very well in all directions. Great feet. Can block while moving. Great body control and use of leverage. High football IQ. Can play multiple positions. Not very strong at the point of attack. Has to excel with technique because he won’t overpower anyone. Will get pushed back if he doesn’t get ideal positioning on target. Best fit is LG or C, but he could step in at LT for short spurts.

    #6. Zach Kerr – NT, Delaware, 6-1 326
    - Thickly built prospect with surprising quickness and flexibility. He actually has decent pass rush moves for a NT and may be able to push the pocket a little bit at the next level. When he keeps his pads low he plows through blockers. Can shed blocks and hold two gaps. Great motor. Doesn’t take plays off. When he doesn’t use his natural leverage he can be beaten at the point of attack. Needs to play high less often. Competition is a concern. Started out at Maryland but transferred due to academics. Can play right away as a DE in a 34 and with the right correction of technique could be a great fit as a two gap NT.

    #7. Tim Cornett – RB, UNLV, 6-0 209
    - Four year contributor with at least 6 TDs in each season. First in school history and second in conference history in rushing yards. Earned those yards the hard way. Developed great patience and vision playing behind a terrible offensive line. Knows how and where to search for the hole even if it doesn’t appear to be there. Shows the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield but never picked up many yards after the catch. Explosive moving forward but not great moving laterally. Won’t make defenders miss in the open field. Lightly recruited in high school at Galena Park. Can play early as a third down back who may be able to work himself into a rotation. Probably not ever your #1 back but a useful player who can catch and convert in short yardage situations.

    #7 (comp). Jeoffrey Pagan – DE, Alabama, 6-3 310
    - Huge prospect who is not easily moved. Good hands. Anchors against the run and can hold two gaps. Very slow feet. Will never be a pass rush threat. Left school early despite no indication that he would be highly drafted. Was a rotational player for most of his career. Severe knee injury in high school, but he hasn’t had problems since. Fits as a two gap run stuffer as either a 34 end or 43 NT.

    I like your Texans picks, though I'm kinda ehhhh on Smallwood, he's a bit slow for me. You've got Hageman falling to the mid 2nd round, if he's available I'd run to the podium at 2.1. I think Hageman is going to be a beast in the NFL. Studying this mock also shows the level of talent that will be available in the mid rounds, there's going to be some good prospects down into the 4th and 5th rounds. Nice work.


    Looking at this mock makes me wish we had multiple 2nd and 3rd round picks, but I feel that way every year.

    Is this how you think teams will draft or how you would draft?

    I am a lot higher on Crichton than you are. He has Jared Allen potential. I'm hoping that if Bridgewater is 1-1 then Crichton is 2-1. He plays with intensity. Good list

    Full mocks are tough to do... wear 32 different hats. Well done.

    MSR, somebody give the man some rep!

    I think Hageman looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane. When I watch his film I see JAG. At some point his size and athleticism is worth the risk, but I prefer football players to big athletes.

    This draft is absolutely solid into the deep rounds. There will be starters that come out of the 6th round of this draft.

    I don't try to predict what other people would do. My mock is a representation of what I would do if I were in control of each team.

    Crichton plays with intensity and he has an awesome story, but I'm just not as high on him as most are. I think he is a solid but unspectacular player. In a less loaded draft he would be drafted higher.

    Your stuff is always legit. I'll hit you w/ some rep next time it rolls back around.

    I think I learn more from your stuff than anyone else here, and I think I'm a borderline 'know it all'. Good stuff as always bro, keep doing your thing.

    Got him for ya.

    I am starting to question spending the #33 on a tackle. I think maybe a middle round pick, 4, comp 5 would be enough to shore up the RT position with Brennan Williams coming back.

    But with Teddy as the #1, we will most likely go offense in round 2. Maybe TE or even another WR.

    I would not draft Hageman until the 5th round.

    He needs a lot of work.

    This is a tough draft for us to go QB #1 in. Our defensive personnel does not fit what Crennel has traditionally run, so we need to be drafting to change that.

    But at the same time, we need a QB. And at #1 I just so happen to see one with franchise potential, so I can't pass on him. Well, if I'm taking him I'm fixing this OL mess so that he is protected. This draft gives us:

    LT - Duane Brown.....Wesley Johnson
    LG - David Quessenberry/Wesley Johnson
    C - Chris Myers.....Ben Jones
    RG - Brandon Brooks.....Ben Jones
    RT - Morgan Moses.....Brennan Williams

    I have to think that one of Moses/Williams will be an upgrade over Newton, and that whoever wins the Quessenberry/Johnson battle will be an upgrade at LG in the future. Drafting this way fixes the OL while also addressing the needs in the defensive front seven.

    This buys us a year to let our young QB grow while protected, and let Crennel see what he has to work with moving forward. We probably don't make the playoffs next year but we set ourselves up with a solid foundation to build on.

    If the board shook out like that I'd rather have Joyner or Amaro...Leaning more toward Amaro...

    And I think Quessenberry would be an ideal RT for this team and I'd rather put Williams weird ass at Guard. Him being weird has nothing to do with that. Just think he'd make a better guard.

    I totally agree that if you are taking a QB #1 you need to protect him and give him the weapons to be successful.

    What do you think about Yankey? I see you have him mid 3rd. Most view him as a guard and tackle prospect. How about Bridgewater/Calvin Pryor/Yankey? Or Bridgewater/ASJ/Yankey?

    I see Yankey as a RG who could potentially move to RT. With Brooks looking pretty solid I don't see Yankey as a risk we should really take. I would prefer to take a guy who has a better shot at performing well at RT early.

    I only take guys like Yankey to play tackle if I'm desperate. If he fails at RT he will be more than fine as a RG, but we already have one of those.

    In those scenarios I take JuWaun James instead of Yankey. He's a RT from day one.

    Did you watch Yankey at the Combine? I saw him in some of the drills and he's got very slow feet. He did not look athletic to me at all. I agree his future is at RG, but I don't see RT potential in him at all.

    after N.O. let two offensive weapons go in Lance Moore and D. Sproles I'm a bit surprised you aren't spending any picks to replace them...?

    They have that RB Robinson, I think his name is, that really came on last year, although they are completely different players. They also have Kenny Stills now. I heard they may lose Pierre Thomas and Michael Jenkins as well.

    I could learn to love this draft. Had a 6'5"~6'7" TE found his way in there, I'd love it for sure.

    With the likely departure of Earl Mitchell and Antonio Smith, the changing philosophy, and the overall lack of depth last year, it's looking like we may need to draft two or more defensive lineman in this draft.
