    Yes, I am coolnerd.

    The advantage that as a national board for most teams you have a guy who is really familiar with the teams needs and way of drafting.

    Here is the link.

    The Houston Texans select Earl Thomas DB University of Texas

    The ability of Thomas to be a cover safety and/or potential even play corner makes him the pick here. The need is a defensive back with ball skills from either position. If Dunta Robinson goes via free agency then Thomas has the cover skills to play CB. If Robinson returns, then the okay, but not special Eugene Wilson becomes quality veteran depth. Earl's weakness is against the run, but paired with Pollard he would not be placed in a run support situation very often.

    The Houston Texans select Ryan Mathews RB Fresno State


    This draft falls very well for the Texans. Matthews has a good size ratio and a running style the seems perfect for zone blocking. Assuming he picks the pss protection game. No reason, he should not be able at minimium split time with the back already with the Texans, but probably would be the favorite for a starting/lead back spot

    I would like those two picks... but overall does not seem a very realistic draft.

    Thomas is best FS to fall to us but I like Kyle Wilson as a pure CB better.

    My belief is that if we posted the actaul draft on a draft site or message board, it would not look realistic based on our assumptions. We don't really know what any of the teams really think about certain prospects and what trades will happen. Just wanted give you an idea of what a draft composed of players who for the most are close followers of their teams looks like at the moment.

    I will particiapate in one more of these on another board in April. This site usually has a couple more during draft season that I may or may not be the Texans representative.

    When I am bored and have nothing to do I will post my results from a kffl.com group I have been mock GM with since either 2003 or 2004.

    He was literally my other consideration at the spot, with CJ spiller as a wildcard BPA consideration. Pouncey crossed my mind there also.

    An I really appreciate you doing so. I guess I was thrown off with the Redskins picking Berry. I dont think that will happen in any way, shape, or form and I had a jaundiced eye after that.

    From your fingers to Rick Smith's draft card. I would kill for those two picks.

    Solid picks on your part. My favs are Dan Williams out of Tennessee and Iupati out of Idaho, but both are gone by the time you pick. It would have been hard to pass up Spiller, but Thomas does fit a big need at FS/CB. I like the Mathews pick a lot.

    Now I am not usually a RB in the 1st type guy, but you passed on C. J. Spiller RB Clemson, who I have been seeing going as high as top ten. Spiller is a RB with sub 4.4 speed and good size, 5-11 195, I've seen him listed at 205, thankfully it's combine week and we see the real measurements. Back to my point, I have a hard time taking a FS with size questions, when a true franchise RB is on the board. FYI he has not had a single fumble in his college career with over 600 carries.

    Is he superman, no. But at 20 he is a solid pick. BTW Spiller is the only RB in this draft that I consider at 20.

    Adding Spiller to Slaton and Foster would give us a solid RB core.

    And then in the 2nd I would love for us to take Matthews, even if we take Spiller, if you don't want 2 RB this high, I go with Donovan Warren, CB, Michigan.

    Overall not a bad effort on your part

    There is a very good argument that I should have went Spiller in round 1 and Allen in round 2. My concern was is is Spiller is a better Slaton versus giving us a player who brings something else. When I look at him I think he is heavier than than the 195, but I don't really know for sure. that will be settled this weakend though. Thanks for replying.

    I'm not a big Spiller fan. He just doesn't have the vision you look for, especially not in a one cut and go system. If there's not a hole 5 yards wide to run through he's always looking to bounce it outside or dance in the backfield.

    I could take a flier on his athleticism in the second, but he is going to have to completely change his running style if he wants to be anything more than Reggie Bust 1.1 in the NFL.

    Nice mock. don't you think with Ladainian cut the first priority for the Chargers would be the running back position ? And since Mathews is a local, they'd have him already pretty well scouted ?

    I have no problem with Thomas. I'm thinking more and more that Iupati is going off the board to the niners with their sixteen. And I don't believe Mathews will fall that far.

    In both, Texans and chargers cases the mock fell too perfectly, but RBs (as a group) tend to fall on draft day. Wells last year was to be gone well before the Cardinals pick, Greene fell to the top of the 3rd.

    I love it. Couldnt have done a better job myself.

    Only other options you had were Donovan Warren or Perrish Cox in the 2nd.
