    1. Clay Matthews, OLB, USC Derp
    2. James Casey, Footballer, Rice He's going to be everything on offense. TE receiving threat, Wildcat QB, Goalline back. The X factor Reggie Bush wishes he could be.
    3. Michael Hamlin, SS, Clemson Good size, Imposer of fear in the secondary
    4a. Bradley Fletcher, CB, Iowa Fits the Smithiak mold for CBs
    4b. Brandon Tate, KR/WR, North Carolina Jacoby Jones is toast
    5. AQ Shipley, C, Chris Myers needs to be replaced, depth addressed
    6. Greg Isander, OG, West Virginia Depth at the very least
    7. Brandon Williams, DE, Texas Tech Why not?

    I tried to be a little different, so no bashing and quite honestly at this point I think everything has been said about Matthews that can be said but he's still my pick.

    Not a fan of not taking any RB's

    Don't really want Clay Matthews, but if he is the pick I won't ***** about it.

    As long as there is no Cushing...I don't know why, but I just have a bad feeling about him.

    Nice mock! I like the Matthews pick. I like the Casey pick- it would definitely be a luxury type of pick for us, but hey... the guy is a football player and seems like a great fit for us. I think the fans would love him. I like how you addressed the secondary. But I'd throw in a RB like Gartrell Johnson maybe with that second 4th rounder. Tate's been injured and it's rumored he may still miss the whole rookie season? If so, I doubt we look at him that early.

    Haven't heard he's guilty, and if he's there ad that's who we roll with our #1 pick i'm good with it.

    I like Casey's versatility but.....where does he go fulltime? That's my biggest concern. Everyone says plug him in here...or there...anywhere! I don't see the staff going with him and I'd plug in someone like Delmas or Chung. I'd love to see us address the interior OL here with Ugner, if still there, or Eric Wood.

    I'm ok with Hamlin being the pick in the third.

    4th...i like the CB pick but not so sure about Tate. I think we're good at WR and despite Jones lack of overall production he's going to get one more shot this year. I think Gartrell Johnson or Glen Coffey would be good picks instead of Tate.

    Good with the rest of the draft especially if we don't address the interior of the line earlier.

    Unger would be nice if he lasts. Casey wouldn't be anywhere fulltime, he'd be everywhere fulltime. Slot reciever, 2nd TE, Goalline back, trick play threat. The guy would be dynamic in this offense under Kubiak and kid-Shanahan.
    GJohnson would be a perfect fit here. Really just took a flyer on Tate to replace JJones at KR because I think with DAnderson re-upping and James Casey filling in reciever depth Jones' WR ability (or lack of) isn't even needed. Someone who could probably fill up his KR status with an actual shot at being a real WR someday in the late 4th is not a wasted pick IMO.
    Yea, the more I think about it the more it seems like we're either going to be able to address interior Oline or secondary with those 2/3 picks. I'd rather fix up the 2ndary. With Gibbs' history of middle round lineman the decision is easier.

    If that's true about Tate then I wouldn't have even put him on. He's supposed to be so low only because of Injuries and if he's got another one that's a MAJOR red flag. Got to get guys that stay on the field.

    id hate to take casey with a first day pick. i like the guy but he seems like a somewhat luxury pick. he'd help a little in alot of ways when we need a full time fixture. and given that we'd have a nice choice of players at need positions (namely safety and pass rushing de) @ 46 id be quite pissed

    If those needs got addressed anyway would it matter? I did pretty much leave the Dline out to dry but it got the most FA help. Neither a safety nor a passrushing specialist put the D into elite threat category where James Casey just might make the O literally unstoppable, especially if my envisioned role of him as a goalline back works.

    Got to take at least 1 RB. Casey doesn't count regardless of what you envision for him. :)

    I love Casey but I don't think we can afford to take him there with better prospects on the board who would fill needs.

    Replace Tate with a RB and I would be happy.

    A situational pass rusher would be great but Williams won't make it to the 7th round. How about Michael Bennett (Texas A&M), David Veikune (Hawaii), Orion Martin (Virginia Tech), or Stryker Sulak (Missouri)? Those guys are all sixth/seventh round players who would be situational pass rushers.

    I could live with the Matthews and Hamlin picks. Fletcher is one of my favorite prospects this year. I've been pimping him for a while. Shipley and Isdaner also fit.

    Overall, good job.

    If Unger were there in the 2nd, he'd be the pick. I know Casey is luxury but who wouldn't want a luxury!?!

    You say Williams won't make it, do you mean he won't fall that far or won't make it into the draft at all? I've never seen him more than an end-of-draft type pick but Bennett was my other 7th round DE getting consideration.

    Realistically, I think my perfect draft would be:
    Matthews
    Unger
    Hamlin
    Fletcher
    maybe Andre Brown but probably Gartrell Johnson
    Isander
    Williams/Bennett/whoeva

    From everything I've seen and heard, Brandon Williams is a likely 4th or 5th round pick.

    I have him as my #12 DE and a late fourth rounder.

    Oh wow, okay haha, I'll trust you...

    It works out anyway in my realistic version:
    Matthews
    Unger (wouldn't need the previous 5th, AQ Shipley if this is the pick)
    Hamlin
    Fletcher
    Brown/Johnson big back
    Williams DE here instead of 7th?
    Isander
    Bennett DE again, why not?

    I would be very happy with that draft.

    I dunno....but reading between the lines of the McClain chat....he was asked twice and twice he infatically posted Gartrell is not on the Texans radar....so someone has told him something....now whether it was a scout source or ....Gibbs.....what ever it is....I think the guy is off our board. Not that I know...just guessing and reading between the lines.

    I really don't understand why you do not like Mathews ? He's the most athletic OLB to come down the road in a very long time. Hips like a safety. Can bull rush in the trenches....he's everything we need. when they send five he will get there. And he'll cover anything on the field.

    Agreed. they got to have a RB.

    I love the James Casey pick, but if OL Max Unger or DE Michael Johnson are there I can't see the Texans passing either of them to pick Casey.

    Also, does anyone think the Texans have any interest in Sebastion Vollmer later in the draft? I think he would make an nice addition to groom into an eventual quality player on the OL, maybe a Swing Tackle.

    Very likely Michael Johnson could go round 1, if he's there in the 2nd and isn't getting serious consideration I just don't know what they are really looking for. Unger has a pretty good shot at falling to us and if so I hope he's the pick, I really can't stand Myers falsestarting himself for another year. James Casey was my WTF? pick, I know it's very unlikely to take such a luxury but...such a luxury would send our O into hyperspace.
