    14) Reggie Nelson, FS, Florida

    2nd
    39) Ryan Kalil, C, USC
    45) Darelle Revis, CB, Pittsburg

    3rd
    73) Aundra Allison, WR, East Carolina

    4th
    104) Kevin Kolb, QB, Houston

    5th
    135) Juwan Simpson, OLB, Alabama

    I like the 7th round flyer.

    I normally see Darelle Revis in the first round, but maybe he slips. And I like the Kolb, Simpson picks.

    I like going secondary 2x in the first 2 round, but I would go with LaRon Landry and Dameion Hughes.

    I love the trade down move and the pickup of the extra second. I thought Revis was a first rounder, but if he slips to the second I'd jump the to he stage to draft him. I am not relaly familiar with Allison and not in favor of Kolb or Taylor.

    I would actually be happy if that happens. Unless we trade Carr I do not want Quinn in a Texans jersey next year.

    Why would we trade down with Carolina when we need a QB more than they do? Delhomme is not that bad. He got them to a Super Bowl. And he played great in the actual game.

    That's why it's a mock. My mock.

    Carolina trading up for Brady Quinn, is not as ridiculous as you may think.

    There is a possibility they may want to do that trade, so I included it in my mock.

    sure that kalil and revis fall?

    all 6 teams that pick before us in the 2nd need OL help. if kalil gets to the 2nd, he's not getting to us IMO.

    Well if you put YOUR mock up, then expect people to analyze it. I didn't say it was ridiculous, I just don't think it's gonna happen.

    Here is another report on Allison. Says he is a deep threat, stretches the field and goes across the middle, we need that.

    If you don't want to have your ideas challenged, then don't post.

    You don't think it can happen, I do.

    Need to repick thirty-nine and forty-five. The rest of it is pretty good.

    The only way we get those two there:

    39) Ryan Kalil, C, USC
    45) Darelle Revis, CB, Pittsburg

    is if someone spikes the rooms coffee that morning with mescal and everyone in the draft room is stoned out of their collective minds. Awesome mock there though. I'd be pleased.


    And Kalil isn't as second day Offensive lineman, has there been a change in the Xt line on lineman there ?

    You're right Kalil and Revis may be slight stretches. But it could happen.

    And as far as the sesond day O-line thing....You put those words in my mouth. I believe in upgrading the team the best way possible. I don't have silly rules about only taking blank position in blank round.

    you've identified some of the best prospects in the draft that fill huge needs for the Texans. if I could take them right now & skip the draft all together then I'd do it :) however,

    1. Brady Quinn will not be there #8
    2. If he was the Texans would want more in return than a 2nd rd. pick otherwise they select him.
    3. Ryan Kalil is a 1st rd. pick
    4. Darrell Revis is a 1st rd. pick

    I'm trying to figure out why everyone is so "sure" that Revis and Kalil are 1st rounders...

    They are late to mid first rounders at best. Is it really that hard to imagine them slipping to the top of the second from the bottom of the first.

    You have: Houston, Hall, Ross, Hughes, and McCauley to go along with Revis....All those guys are ranked right around eachother...It just depends on who likes who... All of those guys aren't first rounders...

    I remember Many had Winston as a late first early second rounder last year. He went in the third. We'll see on draft day.

    Kalil is not as good as Nick Mangold, who went in the late first last year. Kalil does not fit every blocking scheme and the only teams that would look to draft him are Green Bay, Denver, Washington, and the Texans. They all have bigger needs than center in the 2nd and Washington doesn't even have a 2nd round pick.

    I like Brian Robinson in the 6th, but I bet one of the 3-4 teams take him earlier than that...

    So we trade Quinn for Nelson & Darrell Revis??


    I could live with that.
