    I like it, Kaleb McGary will be a much better Guard then Tackle. He will definitely get moved inside.

    What makes you think he’ll move inside? I got the impression he’d hold down the R side of the line for years to come.

    I've watched him a bunch and he has slow feet, average or slightly below average athletically and has short arms.

    Any GM worth his salt will do exactly that. All these people saying we will draft only OT and CB with our first three picks are clueless. It’s why I haven’t even bothered doing a mock draft this year. Unless you pick OT or CB with first three picks the only replies you’ll get are people complaining that we have to do that.

    Mussop...there are no bad Mock Drafts. Just an opinion and your outlook. I like any and all Mock Draft efforts.

    Any mocks before FA has commenced is an exercise in futility

    Yet they are abundant and some people make a handy living out of them.

    Shouldn't change much at the top of the draft. Most of the top guys have been tagged. The tricky part now is where are the QBs going. I think the Jags sign Foles. Then what?

    Most teams may make moves to remove the obvious as far as their draft choices are concerned.
    Yet, it is possible to make mocks for Texans (and likely other teams) for example that they should/could draft regardless of FA.

    Free agency will have very little impact on the Texans draft Plan. Their two top needs will still be the same.

    Ran Simulator 3/11/19 and this is result. It is different than doing a solo mock draft in that several prospects are off the board by time Texan selection rolls around. Did several to come up with most realistic, no Andre Dillard because he will be off long before #23 so had to take another route, one I know most will hate but is what it is based off need and taking BPA.

    23. Christian Wilkins, IDL, Clemson 6030 315
    Big addition to front line, keeps front four dominant and adds interior pass rusher. Run to podium if available, 2 times he was already selected 2 times available so it’s 50/50.

    54. Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama 6010 195
    Was hoping Texans could keep all three in tact but looks like at least one maybe both Kareem Jackson and Tyrann Mathieu. Thompson is your Alabama prototype, physical safety with range would be nice fit next to Reid.

    55. David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin 6060 308
    Big framed, strong technician you can plug and play as rookie to upgrade RT position. Should be a very good long term solution on the right side, in simulator there was a run on OT's.

    86. Amani Hooker, CB, Iowa 5110 210
    Nervous about this pick not player, just hoping there would still be a good corner left, its not a deep class, but clearly fills need in zone coverage scheme, with range and no red flags.

    161. Trayveon Williams, RB, Texas A&M 5080 206
    Unlike corner, RB class is deep and Texans can add a speedster like TW in the 5th. Realize he is short but looks more durable and if he can improve his hands in passing game another weapon for Deshaun.

    195. Tyree St. Louis, OT, Miami 6050 312
    Developmental LT prospect not invited to combine. Was second choice after Oli Udah taken a few picks before Texans. Plenty of upside, better feet than Davenport.

    220. John Cominsky, EDGE, Charleston 6050 286
    Small school I had to do search to put him in this mock. Wouldn't be surprised if he goes early as 4th rd. Ran and performed extremely well @ the combine, JJ Watt lite.

    Why do you think Hooker can play CB in the NFL? He actually played a lot of nickel LB last year.

    Similar to Kareem, can play both which adds plus value.

    I’m actually shocked Texans would let Jackson walk? He has evolved into a really great player in this hybrid role. He’s never been shy to give up his body and lay it all on the line, I respect that.
