    Sign me up. Although I would rather take a safety in round 3.

    I'm good with this mock, I don't understand the safety thing...

    In years past, I could understand the debate. But Eugene Wilson & Bernard Pollard ought to give us at least another year or two to get a Safety.

    I don't recall ever seeing a "Where does Eugene Wilson stand right now?" thread.

    Who do we have behind Eugene Wilson and Bernard Pollard? I dont know about you but I dont want to be one injury away from seeing John Busing or Bryan Russell starting for our team.

    Exactly. As it stands right now, one injury to a player in our secondary could very well mean the end of our season. Its just that thin back there.

    I'm ok with the first 2 picks but Al Woods in the 3rd sucks, IMO he's a 4th or 5th rounder for depth and rotation only. I'd also rather see a FS or OG/C in the 3rd.

    I think Woods is probably a 3rd rounder

    Much rather have Houston or Troup

    If you really want to fix the running game you go
    1 Mike Iupati, G, Idaho or Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida
    2 John Jerry, G/OT, Mississippi
    3 Montario Hardesty, RB, Tennessee

    Now this ignores the defense backs that are there... but your running game would improve.

    Who do we have in front of Amobi & Cody?

    It would be nice to have one starter in front of them.

    Just one...

    Are we expecting Hardesty to be the guy, or the 3rd down guy?

    Don't get why people on the board seem high on Wilson. He's not terrible ,but it's not like he has the position sewed up.

    http://www.nfl.com/players/eugenewilson/profile?id=WIL686587

    Looking at the past two seasons he hasn't even finished or started one healthy. In the mean time we've been stuck hoping guys like Busing, Barber and Nick Ferguson could hold the spot down.

    No qualms about Pollard. The cat brings it.

    He has a lot of nice runs but I don't think he's an NFL player. I think his balance is inconsistent. Also, if you watch how many times he lands very hard and awkwardly on the turf, without being hit hard, you get a sense of why he has injury problems. I think balance at RB is key. When a back has good balance, then a CB hitting his shin at 8 yards won't send him flopping to the turf. Or, when he busts through the line, he won't basically trip forward and tackle himself for an 8 yard gain if his balance is right.

    Not only would I draft guys like Tate and Dwyer before Hardesty, but I'd draft Alex Henderson from Northern Arizona well before I'd consider Hardesty.

    PK: After watching 8 yrs of bad footbaall I wish the Texans had one side of the football they could hang their hat on.

    You're mock would give them that.

    You could draft another RB late.

    I would take Tate, Gerhardt, or Hardesty before Dwyer who's got good size but dosen't run as if he did.

    Miami going defense with their two picks, sounds good to me

    I can understand why some people would be concerned about Dwyer. But, certainly, it isn't a lack of physicality.

    Dom Barber?

    I'm not saying we don't need a safety, but it's not the end of the world if we don't pick a safety in the first three rounds. Especially if we draft a CB in the first, like this mock says.

    Afterall, that leaves us with Wilson, Quin, Reeves, McCain, Bennett, Molden, and other possible picks/FA at CB. That opens up the possibility of trying either Molden or Quin at FS. It also doesn't preclude us from drafting a FS in the 4th.

    There are plenty of viable options at S behind Wilson if we don't draft a S in the first 3 rounds.

    Have you ever watched a GT game?

    (That's rhetorical, obviously you haven't.)
