    Would love your Texans draft. In your mock, I do not see KC taking another OT in the first. Nor Seattle taking Clausen after trading for Whitehurst. Maybe a QB later in the draft.

    Also, I think Cincinatti would take either Mays or Gresham over Price.

    Good job!

    I know Bruce Campbell has the measureables & break through performance @ the combine but his tape is sloppy, so he could slip completely out of the first round. otherwise I can't really say you made a bad pick.

    your Texans mock looks familar, off rmartin65/badboy perhaps with exception of Tate instead of Gerhart & switching out Owens with Robert Johnson. nice!

    I think that would be quite a haul for the Texans if it panned out that way. I just don't see Haden falling that far. I know he ran slow at the Combine but he made up for it at his Pro Day (4.43 I think). If he's there though, they gotta take him.

    Tate, Newhouse, and Johnson would all be solid picks. Not sure about Owens in the 5th, but a number of people on this board are high on him. I just didn't think he would be heavy enough (304 lbs) to play the NT or 1 technique though they say he's as strong as an ox (44 bench presses). The rest of the late round picks looked good too.

    Overall, good job!

    I dont think Haden is going to be there either, but beerlover and awtysst make a very solid case for it with their mock draft, and I trust those guys' evaluations. Also the OP's mock looks pretty solid too, no glaring mistakes (just my opinion). Although I will say I doubt the Raiders take Campbell.

    About Owens, the DT position is not all about weight. It is about leverage, explosion and strength. Owens has all of those in spades. Peoples' biggest mistake when scouting defensive tackles is overvaluing their weight, it is what is giving us Terrence Cody in the late first, even though he can't get tie his shoes without needing oxygen.

    The only knock against Bulaga is his 33" arms. In terms of being locked and loaded day one to start, he might be the most ready player in the draft. He's a day one starter you could plug in four spots of five slots and may be OLT. In terms of what they already have he's perfect. He gives the chiefs great flexibility and a building block for a top five o-line in the very near future. That there thingy is a no brainer pick. They may do something other than that. Singletary and the niners will smile all the way to the bank if Bulaga falls to them. I wish we had a shot at him.

    I only scanned it but looks possible at each selection. I REALLY like the Texans haul as the players in lower rounds should make the roster with exception of 7th. I am a big fan of Newhouse and Robert Johnson. I too doubt Haden there but could be. I like Gerhart in 2nd. FS is a big need but if you have a lock down cover corner like Haden on the field, I think our FS suddenly gets much better. If anyone is unaware of Robert Johnson's stats, I suggest you check him out. It is interesting to think how much better Haden could be with NFL coaching to polish him.

    Well, after reading over some comments and evaluating my first mock, I got the itch to do another one. With all the pre-Draft trades that are shaking up so much of what will happen, I'm anxious to see how draft-day trades alter this years selections and obliterate our mock drafts..

    2010 NFL MOCK DRAFT
    1. St. Louis (1-15) - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
    When given the opportunity to draft a franchise QB, you take it. Previously: Bradford
    2. Detroit (2-14) - Russell Okung, OT, Okie Lite
    Protecting Stafford is of the utmost priority. Previously: Suh
    3. Tampa Bay (3-13) - Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
    Instant upgrade to defense. Previously: McCoy
    4. Washington (4-12) - Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
    Athletic linemen fits perfectly into Shanahan's offense. Previously: Okung
    5. Kansas City (4-12) - Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
    Pioli possibly reaches for positional value. Previously: Bulaga
    6. Seattle (5-11) - Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
    Seattle lucks into possibly the best prospect in the draft. Previously: Clausen
    7. Cleveland (5-11) - Eric Berry, FS, Tennessee
    Cleveland runs to the podium for this one. No brainer. Previously: Berry
    8. Oakland (5-11) - Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
    JPP's pure physical gifts awe and amaze the Dead One. Previously: Campbell
    9. Buffalo (6-10) - Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
    Toughest pick to call, they can go in so many different directions. New regime equals new QB. Previously: T. Williams
    10. Jacksonville (7-9) - Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
    Essential to get to QB in a division with Manning and Schaub. Previously: Morgan
    11. Denver (7-9) - Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama
    High IQ football player solidifies Denver's front seven. Previously: McClain
    12. Miami (7-9) - Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
    Miami needs a NT for it's 3-4. Almost as easy as Cleveland's pick! Previously: D. Williams
    13. San Francisco (8-8) - Earl Thomas, FS, Texas
    With Thomas at back end of 49ers D, they are looking as favorites in the West. Previously: Thomas
    14. Seattle (8-8) - Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
    Gibbs loves his athletic lineman... Previously: C. Brown
    15. New York Giants (8-8) - CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson
    A BPA scenario, if it plays out like this I see many teams calling New York to negotiate a trade, though I don't think Giants fans will be too angry about getting Spiller. Previously: Witherspoon
    16. Tennessee (8-8) - Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas
    Can play with hand down or possibly become LB for a rebuilding Tennessee D. Previously: Dunlap
    17. San Francisco (8-8) - Maurkice Pouncey, OG/C, Florida
    Solidifies OL for years to come. Player Singletary will love. Previously: Spiller
    18. Pittsburgh (9-7) - Joe Haden, CB, Florida
    Steelers are ecstatic Haden falls to them; instantly becomes a starter. Previously: Pouncey
    19. Atlanta (9-7) - Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan
    Graham fits perfectly into Falcons' defensive scheme. Previously: Graham
    20. Houston (9-7) - Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers
    Straight replacement for DR, becomes starter opposite Quin/Reeves. Previously: Haden
    21. Cincinnati (10-6) - Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
    Cincy gets a mauler with tremendous potential. Previously: Price
    22. New England (10-6) - Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
    Algae Crumpler? New England is desperate for a solid TE. Previously: Gresham
    23. Green Bay (11-5) - Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
    Davis immediately steps into GB's porous OL to protect Rodgers. Previously: Davis
    24. Philadelphia (11-5) - Sean Witherspoon, LB, Mizzou
    Perfect for Philly's D, starter from day one. Previously: Mays
    25. Baltimore (9-7) - Taylor Mays, S, USC
    Taking the lead from Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, Mays develops into a terror in the defensive backfield. Previously: McCourty
    26. Arizona (10-6) - Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
    Gives Arizona a great, young starting CB tandem for the foreseeable future. Previously: Wilson
    27. Dallas (11-5) - Rodger Saffold, OT, Indiana
    After releasing Adams and having other players they were targeting off the board, Dallas goes for the monstrous tackle. Previously: Iupati
    28. San Diego (13-3) - Ryan Mathews, RB, Fresno State
    In dire need of RB help, Mathews is a great fit into San Diego's offense. Previously: Mathews
    29. New York Jets (9-7) - Dez Bryant, WR, Okie Lite
    Due to immaturity issues he slides all the way to bottom of first; Jets fans riot out of happiness in Radio City Music Hall. Previously: Bryant
    30. Minnesota (12-4) - Jared Odrick, DE/DT, Penn State
    With most of the top corners gone, Vikings take Odrick to become future starter and contribute this year. Previously: Odrick
    31. Indianapolis (14-2) - Jerry Hughes, DE, TCU
    Freeney and Mathis' eventual successor, his high work rate and first step will torment the Texans for years. Previously: Hughes
    32. New Orleans (13-3) - Daryl Washington, OLB, TCU
    Two TCU players to close out the first round? Crazy, I know, but Washington is exactly what the Saints need as a replacement for Fujita and an already weak LB corps. Previously: Kindle

    Disclaimer: Even though these are my picks, I think there are going to be multitudes of trades this year involving future picks for ones this year. I'm guessing at least eight different 1st round trades this year.




    With this first rounder, I've also done two Texans drafts that I foresee and would love to happen...


    2010 TEXANS DRAFT: A
    1. (20): Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
    2. (51): Jon Asamoah, OG, Illinois
    3. (81): Ben Tate, RB, Auburn
    4. (118): Robert Johnson, FS, Utah
    5. (150): Corey Peters, DT, Kentucky
    6. (187): Charles Scott, RB, LSU
    6. (197): Nolan Carroll, CB, Maryland
    7. (227): Adrian Martinez, OG, Colorado State

    *OR*

    2010 TEXANS DRAFT: B
    1. (20): Maurkice Pouncey, OG/C, Florida
    2. (51): Jerome Murphy, CB, South Florida
    3. (81): Myron Lewis, FS, Vanderbilt
    4. (118): Anthony Dixon, RB, Mississippi State
    5. (150): Jeff Owens, DT, Georgia
    6. (187): Nolan Carroll, CB, Maryland
    6. (197): Trindon Holliday, WR/KR, LSU
    7. (227): Alphonso Smith, RB, Kentucky


    As always, all comments are appreciated so I can further fine-tune my mocking skills. Any questions about my picks please ask and I'll answer.

    I almost went with Pouncey in the 1st . Then it would be a CB in the 2nd but I thought Matthews and Tate would be gone by the 3rd .

    Overall a good job with lots of SEC players .
