    Texans awarded the last pick in the draft also known as Mr. Irrelevant 41 (256) Houston Texans (compensatory selection). Texans owned the rights to choose Mr. Irrelevant back in 2011, selecting Rice DE Cheta Ozougwu, think he reached injury settlement shortly after camp began? Anyway here is more information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Irrelevant winner receives a cool week in Newport Beach, Paul Salata a former NFL receiver has announced the winner making selection in NY @ the draft podium every year since the 70's. In short it is a very cool, always fun time http://www.theundefeated.org/irrelevant-week/about-irrelevant-week/

    Thought it might be fun to discuss who the Texans will draft & try to mock him for a change to the #1 overall pick. Anyone up for this challenge?

    With the 256th selection, the Houston Texans select - John Urschel, OG. Penn State 6-3 301

    Certainly not Mr. Irrelevant, done so much & will do so much more but he is graded out in 7th rd. could say something similar about Trey Hopkins, Texas. A lot of great young men/football players slip through the cracks & become undrafted free agents just look at Arian Foster. My thinking would be if he does his former head coach, Bill O'Brian would push real hard for his guy!

    If he's there, BL, that's a good pick. I have him as a 6th rounder in the mock I am currently working on.

    To answer the thread, I have Kent State's ILB Roosevelt Nix as Mr. Irrelevant. Might not test well, but the dude is a football player.

    Johnny Manziel - QB - Texas A&M - SEC

    Kid from Texas - has even said he would like to be drafted by the Texans. Even BO'B has mentioned this guy, saying he is "exciting". If you can find some highlights to watch you will probably agree. Even people concerned about off-the-field issues might think he is worth a shot at 256.

    Hmm... not sure if this helps or hurts my chances of pegging Mr. Irrelevant? :hmmm:

    Need some depth at ILB, which I don't expect to be addressed early in the draft. Plus OB has been his coach for a couple years.

    That's a good pick, I could see that happening.

    Jeff (Jeoffrey) Pagan - DE - Bama

    He's one of the few 7th rounders/UDFAs I see that can possibly contribute to more than just Special Teams in their careers.

    I do these things every year and a million people always find their day 1 starters in the 7th round. I learned a while back, Go For Speed and tackling ability because they're gonna be special teams only for the most part. This guy is my Golden Goose in the 7th round that I am breaking my rule for. I will likely be educated and go back to my original thinking after season's end though.

    I think Jensen has a huge upside in this offense. I think I mocked him in the 5th round of my draft.

    I like him as well and wouldn't mind taking him in the 6th or 7th if we didn't have so many other needs to fill. He's got text book size, tall, long arms, big hands, etc... for the position and had good college productivity until his senior year when the team switched to a spread offense and didn't use the TE much. I think he fits what O'Brien wants in a TE and could be a steal in the 7th due to his poor productivity his senior year.
