    1. (15) Brian Cushing OLB 6-3, 243 4.74 USC
    2. (46) Darius Butler CB 5-10.5, 180 4.35 UConn
    3. (77) Chip Vaughn SS 6-1.5, 221 4.51 Wake Forest
    4A. () Xavier Fulton G/T 6-4, 302 5.03 Illinois
    4B. () Glenn Coffee RB 6-0, 210 4.58 Alabama
    5. () Johnny Knox KR 5-11.5, 185 4.34 Abilene Christian
    6. () Dan Grankowski TE 6-5.5, 255 4.78 Maryland
    7. () Marlon Lucky RB 5-11, 216 4.60 Nebraska


    Now I will get blasted for drafting 2 RB but the way I see it we are not signing a significant RB in FA so we need depth and who knows we can get a hit late. Lucky ran well at the combine.

    Grankowski is more of a blocking TE who can grow into the rec threat. His numbers are off the charts at the combine (except 40) so he will fall.

    I took a Tackle but his drill and size dictake he would be a very good guard in a zone set.

    That is my mock, have at it.

    I like it (Patron I mean) LOL

    I like this mock

    We need to pick up a young pass rushing DE

    Love the Butler pick doubt he will be there.

    I wouldn't be against Butler in the 1st rd after trading down.

    You need to drink more! I like it. I would rather have Mathews than Cushing but I wouldnt cry about it. I really like Butler and wouldnt be shocked to see him go in the mid first. Chip Vaugn hasnt gotten enough talk. If Fultons knee checks out he could be a good fit. Think he will still be around in the 5th or 6th. Coffee is under rated, hes a tough little runner. If we draft Johnny Knoxx can we expect a visit in the lockeroom from Partyboy? Grankowsky is an interesting player and a good value at 6. Lucky will be Lucky to get drafted. He had a great year 2 years ago but dissapeared this year. There were talks of him trying to comit suicde.

    lucky is a nice back in the 7th, love coffee just not that coffee, so no. Cushing ah, well, kinda, maybe, not really. Butler probably doesn't sniff the 2nd. I really don't think we need anymore safetys unless they can cover which Vaughn is not known to do. Fulton is interesting good value pick.

    ya know in another thread I said the Texans could draft up to three starters. in your mock its less likely unless Butler slips.

    That's why I like Hamlin in the third. He's not a top athlete, but can do everything well.

    I'll grant you that. his best attribute however is in run support.

    give me Rashad Jennings in the 3rd & I'll be happier :)

    You need to drink more often, I like this mock. I don't know anything about Xavier Fulton so I'll have to take your word for it on him and I think we could do better in the 5th round, but overall I like it.

    Let me add that the second round was my hardest to figure out. I thought about Kruger but with the signing of Smith and how Cochran and Bulman played last year I figured that DE was not a need.

    As far as safety goes, I think we need both and since Wilson is on the team I went with Vaughn. I would have no problem if it was Hamlin instead or even Sherrod Martin.
