well just noticed Lance beat me to it, even did similar layout go figure anyway here is mine, compare the two if you like, or not Killing time until the combine, so post Senior Bowl, here are my projected picks for the Texans Fans here on this board to review. added a couple extra options in case unavailable, alright go ahead & flame me 1st. Leodis McKelvin, 5-10 190 Troy A true press corner with smooth back peddle & suddeness out of breaks, excellent recovery speed & top rated return skills. only negative are his hands, but does break-up passes & is a sure tackler who can be left on island with WR. This is a must with Dunta Robinson out, best fit for Texans but may be gone by #18 which would mean that Mike Jenkins falls, another option here. 1a. Chris Williams, OT 6-6 320 Vanderbilt Really have not seen enough of him, just the Senior Bowl & pratices but moves very well in space for a man his size so he might be a fit for Gibbs zbs. To address LT its gonna be difficult to wait until the 3rd rd. the Texans almost have to select one in the 1st assuming their cb is off the board & they are unable to trade down. I'm not going to worry about bpa in this scenero given the fact if Gibbs feels he can coach the prospect up to a very high level, his real value will most likey exceed his draft position anyways. 1b. Rashard Mendenhall, RB 5-11 210 Illinois Franchise back plain & simple. do the Texans have to get one to be effective? probably not but what a luxury to have, not a Cadillac soft ride more of a Range Rover that runs over & through impediments. would consider Jonathan Stewart too but expect him to be already selected by #18. 3rd. Roy Schuening, RG 6-4 308 Oregon State Smart, good teqnique for zbs, use of hands & footwork. bit of a nasty demenor. Weary will be recovering along with Spencer from broken tibias. the Texans will attempt to address this need via free agency. Chris White is also rehabing, Studdard faltered when needed & Mike Brisiel finished the season as the starter a long was from starting as an undrafted free agent. pencil Roy in as the starter from day one. 3a. Matt Forte, RB 6-1 220 Tulane If the Texans do not select a RB in round one look for them to take the best available here in the 3rd rd. who fits the zbs, one cut, see the hole & runs downhill. Anyone expect much, besides the Texans regarding Ahmen Green? if he can contribute great, bonus. Ron Dayne will finish his career with the Texans but he needs to have a successor in the power running game. Chris Taylor missed the entire 07 season its going to be difficult for him to come back lacking experience anyways. Darius Walker is insurance, for now hope he works hard this offseason. 3b. Chevis Jackson, CB 5-11 190 LSU Good football instincts, athletic enough in space, reads well & can play press corner w/help over the top. Even if the Texans select a cb in the 1st rd. they would be tempted to take another one to develop like Bennett last year. there should still be several other options here, like Thomas DeCoud, Cal or Patrick Lee, Auburn. 4. Oniel Cousins, OT/OG 6-4 300 UTEP Naturally strong, raw with attitude who needs a coach like Gibbs to bring out his best. OL reinforcement, could start @ RG depending on IR status of Texans & swing outside if needed once he adjusts to the speed of the game & refines his technique. 4a. Jordy Nelson, WR 6-3 215 Kansas State Fell in love with his game @ the Senior Bowl. instinctive route runner who adjusts & helps the QB when in trouble. excellent hands, catches everything from across the middle to deep routes to red zone. carbon copy of Kevin Walters now & will only improve in this system giving the opportunity to play. would see significant time as a rookie. 4b. Jordon Dizon, OLB 6-0 230 Colorado Smart, intelligent blue collar worker on the field who keeps playing. keeps good position in passing situations & sure tackler in the open field. can also find the open lane in blitz packages, would add depth to the LB's. 5. Darnell Terrell, CB 6-2 200 Missouri Notice a trend, also the pointing out cb can be addressed in other rounds besides the 1st or 3rd. Notice his the size could end up @ FS, has excellent speed (4.4 range) I like corners who are physical & can tackle. 5a. James McClinton, DT 6-0 290 Kansas Have to mention a Jay Hawk with a Tiger on the clock or ytf will kill me. seriously he is an impressive inside tackle that we could use next to Amobi, a little undersized but has a high motor & will fight for inside position alot like Amobi bringing pocket pressure on 2nd & 3rd effort. Travis Johnson is not long for the Texans unless he can be mentored by Rhodes. 5b. Jacob Hester, RB 5-11 230 LSU Another LSU player, actually you could draft one every round & come out of it pretty sweet. everyones favorite, great work ethic, team first attitude & understanding of every facet of the offense. would be a valued player in a Gibbs system, would take him here if still on the board even if already drafted a RB. 6. Fernando Velasco, C 6-3 315 Georgia The Bulldogs made a living running the ball, something Gibbs intends to do. while I'm not impressed with the top centers in this draft this guy can flat out drive block with the best. big, wide body not the best athlete but demonstrated excellent leadership working the blocking assignments for basicly an all freshman line that improved each week becoming one the the premier run blocking lines in the country. can also play guard if needed/ 6a. Jeremy Geathers, DE 6-2 248 UNLV Need to add speed rushing end for the right side as situational player. This is a position I'm almost certain the Texans address in FA. still with established NFL player added, Geathers whose whole family practicaly plays or has played in the NFL would be excellent to develop on the practice squad, you just never know. 6b. Anthony Alridge, WR 5-9 174 Houston Why not take a local kid, at least it would be good media relations & listen the kid has speed (4.3) come into games to stretch the field at least & give the starter a breather. he is worth a 6th rd. pick & has stated his desire to play for the Texans. 7. Demetrius Bell, OT 6-5 283 Northwestern State A project but is a converted TE, good athlete with upside to develop. 7a. Taylor Mehlhaff, K 5-10 185 Wisconsin Need a kicker to develop, back-up Kris Brown or take over kick-off duties has exceptionally strong leg to drive the ball deep or out of the endzone. 7b. Paul Smith, QB 6-1 200 Tulsa Finish things up with a QB that no mock draft would be complete without. coaches son, excellent understanding of the game I assume he will be very adept at carrying a clipboard.
