Doppelganger typically never does a mock this early, but its kneejerk reaction time! I think the Texans will be looking at a loss to SF and thus a 2-3 record after 5 games. That said, while I think improvements can be made, I dont see this team making a major turn around. There are still 2 games against the Colts and 1 each against the Broncos and Patriots. At this point I think the Texans lose 3 of those 4. In addition, the Chiefs have a stingy defense and the Cardinals and Raiders are no slouches. I have a feeling the Texans lose to the Chiefs and beat the Cardinals and Raiders. That would put them at approximately 9-7 if they can take care of the other games. It is my projection the Texans end up picking in the mid to late teens in the next draft. So with that in mind, this is how GM Doppelganger would handle the draft. In this universe juniors and seniors are available. 1. Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA, 63, 227lbs, 4.69 Schaub is an average quarterback. He is not a gamechanger and will never be one. That is not a knock on him, it is just what he is. There is nothing wrong with average, but if you are going for the Superbowl, you need above average and game changer. Enter Mr. Hundley. Hundley may not declare, but if he does Htown should go get him. He led the team back against the Cornhuskers and has a good arm and feet. Hundley is a gamechanger who in essence turned the entire UCLA program around on his own. He plays in a prostyle offense and has been molded to be a pocket passer with running ability. While Manziel got all the headlines, I think Hundley is the better QB and will be the better pro. I would take him in the first and let him start Day 2. Adrian Hubbard, OLB, Alabama, 66, 252lbs In a 3-4 the name of the game is getting pressure from both edge rushers. Merculis is getting some success while Reed looks completely lost at times. Reed would likely be much better at ILB next to Cush. Hubbard is a strong OLB pass rushing prospect. He is strong against the run and passrushes like a man possessed. VERY high motor type of guy. He would start at OLB, pushing Reed inside next to Cush. One move to improve two positions. 3. Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami, 68, 336lbs, 5.19 Newton simply hasnt played well enough to simply anoint him the starter. Yes, Henderson is big, but he is also very athletic. Yes, he had back surgery but if he can play the way I know he can, he could be a steal here in the third. Brennan Williams may not make it and I dont want to have Williams and Newton as my only RT options. 4. Jerry Gates, Bowling Green University, FS, 511, 190lbs, 4.5 Last year the Texans drafted Swearinger to replace Manning. I take Gates to replace Reed. Gates is a true ball hawking FS. He is also a very good KR and could help on the special teams. Give him a year with Reed and let him start the year after. 5. Kelcy Quarles, DE, South Carolina, 64, 298lbs, 5.05 A solid DE to give depth/compete for a starting spot when Ninja leaves town. He can tackle, get in the backfield, and play fairly well against the run. 6. Beau Allen, NT, Wisconsin, 63, 325lbs, 5.39 I know the Texans wont take a guy like him, but I will. He is the kind of big run stopping NT you need on a 3-4 defense on first and second down. Let him clog the lane and play the run, will allow JJ, Ninja/DE, and LBs from getting free. Plus he would reduce wear and tear on the LB corp. 7. Marcus Coker, RB, Stony Brook, 60, 230lbs, 4.60 Tate is as good as gone next year and that leaves the Texans with only Foster and Wood. Coker has some character issues, but he has talent. A physical one cut runner he would be a great change of pace physical back that could be used in short yardage situations. So have at it, its a kneejerk mock afterall!!!
