    Well, I'm getting bored with no news on the Reed front and looking at the same mocks here, so I decided to post this mock that Walter Football did a few days ago and see what some of you think. Would you be happy with this?

    The latest Walter Football draft Has the Texans selecting:

    1st Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee

    2nd Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU

    3rd D.J. Swearinger, S, South Carolina

    4th Ryan Otten, TE, San Jose St.

    5th Oday Aboushi, OG/OT, Virginia

    Full draft link http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...9cmuSPbOPvbPv8ReODlmDmw&bvm=bv.43828540,d.b2I

    I'm still not sold on the Texans drafting Hunter. Not because he's no good, but because I think Allen and Hopkins are more NFL ready. And now, with Walter gone, it becomes more important to get that #2 WR that's as ready as possible. I think if Allen or Hopkins are there at #27 that's who they take.

    Minter in the 2nd would be great but I don't think he lasts that long. Walter Football had the Texans taking Minter in the 1st before. Not sure why they dropped him, although most of the ILB's seem to be dropping (Ogletree, Te'o, etc..). It's just not a very good class. My guess is, that if Minter is there in the 2nd they take him, if not, they may look for a NT or OLB.

    Swearinger in the 3rd would be great. Otten in the 4th seems a little early but not too bad. Not sure if the Texans will look at TE this early though. I'm hoping for Williams in the 5th, or maybe Lucas Reed or Zach Sudfeld in the 7th. Any of those 3 guys could be a steal in this draft. Aboushi in the 5th would be good. He seems like he's made for the zone blocking scheme and would be a good fit.

    Add a 3rd comp pick to that mix and I think that's a good start to a draft. I would go oline with the comp pick and try to grab a RT or guard.

    I would take Allen at #27.

    I would trade down for either Hunter or Hopkins.

    At the end of the day though, there are several receivers to choose from so I don't worry too much about it.

    Yeah, the comp picks will change all the "official" mocks, but we won't know what we've got until probably sometime in early April. Although, the 3rd round comp for Mario should be a done deal. If the Draft fell this way for the Texans, I'd probably go with the DT using the 3rd round comp pick. Maybe Bennie Logan, if he's still there.

    Yep! I just don't think he'll be there, unfortunately.

    Thought of this. And, depending on how the Draft goes, it could be a real possibility for the Texans. Not sure how much they can trade back and still have Hopkins on the board. Early 2nd at most. Maybe Eagles or Cards trade up for a QB.

    I think it will depend on how many FA receivers get signed.
    If all or most of them find a home, chances are the receivers will get pushed down draft boards.

    I would cut Schaub, run the no huddle offense (early in the game or when we need to play catch-up) with Keenum.

    Draft 3 receivers; use the rest for defense; then get the cooler ready to enjoy some shoot-outs (or massacre.) :cow:

    I hope this happens, and they push Allen right down to #27. I know the Vikes were one team that probably would have drafted a WR in the 1st if they hadn't signed Jennings.

    I could still see them going after Tavon Austin?

    So how does this years crop of WRs in the Draft compare with the 2012 crop ?

    Top to bottom I think it's better.
    I think Patterson and Allen are better prospect than Blackmon and Flloyd as they are more dynamic (both speed and quickness.)

    Austin is different from Wright but both are explosive.

    And there are a bunch I would take over what's his name that the Niners drafted in the first round?

    This class has more speed and quickness than the last.

    How would you feel if Brandon Williams was substituted for Reed?

    Give me David Amerson in the 2nd and Brandon Williams in the 3rd and I'd be alot happier.

    Man, that would be an awsome draft.

    Doubt Amerson and Williams will be there in rds 2-3. Probably it's an either/or situation.

    Brandon Williams might go in the 2nd round because it only take one crazy GM to over value a guy, but IMO he should be a 3rd rounder. He's making a huge leap from D2 to the NFL, and while he plugs the middle and plays the run well he doesn't offer alot when it comes to rushing the QB. He's got alot to learn and is a minor project player that will need to rotate with someone at NT by whomever drafts him and will probably take at least a year to become a good consistent starter level player.

    Yeah, I'd have to say the same. And why does Aboushi suddenly move from the 5th to the 4th round? Has he done something to improve his rank?

    I'd like that better. Williams probably won't be there later in the 3rd, and Jordan Reed to me is another OD or Graham as far as size. If they went TE in the 2nd I'd go with Vance McDonald who is moving up draft boards, and is a bigger TE with a lot of upside.
