    My First MiniMock of 09

    1st Donald Brown RB UConn Time to Create the two headed monster
    2rd Ron Brace DT Boston College
    3rd Zach Follett OLB Cal
    3rd Courtney Greene S Rutgers
    4tg Matt Shaughnessy DE Wisconsin
    5th Eric Wood OC Louisville
    5th 5th round Sean Smith CB Utah
    6th Tyrell Sutton RB Northwestern
    7th Curtis Painter QB Purdue

    Trade down to the mid 20's draft RB and get a 3rd and 5th.

    LOve Painter as a project QB. Prior to the season he was a potential first day QB. He has more physical ability than Brink did last year.

    I don't know much about those guys but we all those positions are that of need. I would like to take a CB higher than that and I thinik Smithiak has shown they will not take a RB in the 1st. Either way, that's a nice list.

    have you watched Brown play?

    gets points for trading down & adding another 3rd. rd. pick

    brace is one of the best DT in this class

    Follett adds size & speed @ OLB

    Greene fills void left by CC with more upside

    Shaughnessy would be a steal here

    Wood adds depth to OL

    Sutten would complete depth @ RB

    Painter could be a Kubiak type of QB to develop, good accuracy

    No I haven't and I really am not as good as keeping up with all the guys in the draft and where they are expected to go.....not nearly as informed as some of you guys....so I wouldn't argue with one particular pick at all. In fact I would be happy that those positional needs got met and think it's a good list. Wouldn't mind learning a little more about some of those players though.

    Why would the texans draft a running back in the 1st round and we have bigger needs on the defensive side of the ball.

    Agreed. I think another stud RB is a huge need, but we need some secondary help badly.

    Because a strong running game keeps the defense off the field. Look at our time of possession and you will where Kubiak is getting better at resting our defense.

    You explained this better than I could.

    Just wanted to add, I believe Brown and Brace become two of the big movers in this draft. I am just early to the party.

    I agree about Brown but Brace seemed like an Okam clone.

    Check out the running back thread, because we can fill that need on 2nd day. I have Green avail in 3rd, but many doubt that. Also, Ian Johnson from Boise in 4th and I have him in 5th.

    I think Peria Jerry and BJ Raji will rival each other as to whose the first DT off the board. Jerry is the pass rushing UT where Raji is a run stopping NT that is good at rushing the passer. Brace may very well be the next NT in line after Raji. A team needing one of those type of DTs will most likely not be drafting Jerry or Marks or the So Cal guy.

    I've been on the Peria bandwagon awhile, but what is it thats so captivating about Raji & how does he fit the 4-3?

    325lbs playing the UT. He has the athletic ability to split the double team, and the size to manhandle his way through to the backfield.

    This season has a group of stud DTs, mainly UTs, coming out guys like Peria, and Ziggy Hood will be stars in the NFL once they figure the pro game and if the coaches utilize them correctly.

    I just don't agree. I see this being a poor DT class. There are some big names, but I'm not impressed by Raji, Brace, Peria, or Hood. I like Atkins some, but as a boarderline first day guy. The only DT I really like is Cody, and I don't think he is ready to come out this year.
