    Agreed.

    I've seen some earlier tonight that have us drafting a WR, as well.

    DeSean Jackson is a very talented offensive weapon, something the Texans could always be interested in.

    This particluar mock version however has ommited Sam Baker, Jeff Otah & Gosder Cherilus all 1st rd. quality tackles. they have Steve Slayton #23 ahead of Rashard Mendenhall #31 when no way Slayton is even worth even a 1st rd. pick (based on his junior season he'll probably have to come back for his senior season). then to top it off they have Calais Campbell & Kenny Phillips going to the teams picking just ahead of the Texans.

    If this was the case I'd trade down with San Fransisco grab Mendenhall & use the 49'ers 2nd on Sam Baker. that has about as much possibility as this mock of happening :devilpig:

    Special to Rivals.com College Football

    The NFL Draft order isn't completely set, and only a fraction of the underclassmen who will declare for the draft have done so at this point.

    However, it is never too early to take a look at how the draft might shake out if it were held tomorrow.

    Rivals.com asked its NFL Draft partner – Frank Coyle of draftinsiders.com – to put together a first-round mock draft with comments.

    Enjoy.

    1. Miami (1-15)
    The Pick: Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
    The Buzz: Dorsey is a dominant inside force who will impress Bill Parcells on film.
    2. St. Louis (3-13)
    The Pick: Chris Long, DE, Virginia
    The Buzz: The Rams defense needs a playmaker up front.
    x - 3. Atlanta (4-12)

    The Buzz: The Falcons must rebuild their offense, and the start with the most important position.
    x - 4. Oakland (4-12)
    The Pick: Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas*
    The Buzz: The Raiders' Al Davis never passes on the chance for a superstar.
    x - 5. Kansas City (4-12)

    6. N.Y. Jets (4-12)
    The Pick: Jake Long, OT, Michigan

    The Buzz: The Bengals defense gives up too many big plays and needs a leader and anchor in the middle.
    10. New Orleans (7-9)
    The Pick: Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State*

    I wonder if Limas Sweed would possibly drop as low as the third round giving us a shot at him. He would be a steal at wide receiver in the later rounds. IMO he would have gone pretty high if he were to have finished out the season at Texas.

    I've been seeing some other mocks that have the Titans taking him in the 1st round.

    I just can't see all of these teams desperate, I post desperate, for OTs and letting the cream slide into the second. Jets paying two top high end OLTs ?

    San Fransico, the steelers, the Broncos, the Ravens, the Cards, the Raiders and us letting them slid by...I just don't see it. The tackles will go befor the RB and Wrs do. All due repect to Mr. Coyle there. I'm not tring and I count seven. There ain't that many on the board who are day one starters. Simple supply and demand. Are you going to risk the QB by letting the starter OLTs go by ? You can live without Deshawn, you ain't going to the playoffs if your QB is sacked thrity or forty times or is constantly injured. Protect the QB. Defend the QB. Sack the QB that's it. Everything else is gravey.

    wouldn't surprise me at all. Houston wanted Ted Ginn, might as well settle for the next best thing.

    certainly couldn't hurt to have more than one dynamic game-changing athlete.

    Well the average has been four. So I guess he is saying that this class of offensive lineman is the worse class in ten years ? Pro football weekly has the average # of positions taken up.
