Default Frank Coyle's www.draftinsiders.com mock

The texans picks are head scratchers IMO.

23Houston* Byron Murphy CB Washington
54Houston (Seattle)* Amani Hooker S Iowa
55Houston* Irv Smith TE Alabama
86Houston* Kaden Smith TE Stanford
161Houston* Jamel Dean CB Auburn
195Houston Greg Gaines DT Washington
220Houston (Giants thru Denver) Alex Barnes RB Kansas State


Not a single OL prospect in the mix. I would not be real happy with 0 offensive lineman taken by the Texans.

Not to mention two TEs when we drafted two last year who were adequate.

My last mock on Fanspeak was odd in that the only three OTs off the board were Williams, Taylor and Dillard (at 22). At 23, I had my choice of Ford, Little, McGary and Cajuste at OT.

But, I also noticed that the run at CB had not started. Greedy Williams and Byron Murphy were both available and they are normally taken by that time. I really thought hard what I wanted to do.

Greedy is a Deion-type who is a tremendous cover corner but is a liability in run support whereas Murphy is not quite as athletic but is a solid overall CB. I decided to trade down and let the draft make my choice for me. I moved down with Green Bay and added their 4th-rounder and when it was time again for me to pick, Cody Ford was still there so I took him at #30.

Murphy is attractive but could we get two solid OLs if we wait until the second round? I decided I'd rather have Ford now then added Cajuste in the second.

I then added the CB from Penn State in the second round. After that, I took most of my usuals - Sternberger in the third, Mack in the 4th, Renfrow and Bryce Love in the fifth (after a trade down), Gary Johnson in the 6th and a safety in the 7th.

I like that way of thinking. In my mocks Cajuste was gone before 54.

I like these two TEs, but not both, as you said two developing young TE already on the roster, one of the young guys would have to be cut, and that would be stupid. (I am already considering Griffin gone if they draft another TE this season).
