    Shaping up to be a Fletcher Cox opportunity! Denver and Houston have other needs.
    We can finally allow Gerald Warren to finally retire with confidence.

    Sorry guys.

    A defensive lineman who can run! Oh my!! He's got my vote too. Then Still. Thinking we might sign Landry. Hope it's just for one year. Would take Barron out of the equation. Might be able to get Nick Perry or Andre Branch at 31. F. Cox and N. Perry would do wonders for our pass rush. Not perfect players. But, will get after the qb.

    I'd love to hear your reasoning for Houston drafting another DE after already having JJ Watt and Antonio Smith.

    1. He is the BPA on my big board
    2. They run a defensive scheme in which he would likely thrive best in
    3. You can never have enough talent on the D line (ask the Giants)
    4. I can address other perceived team needs in later rounds where I don't feel the talent drop off is as steep.
    5. The Texans have shown a willingness to go after higher ceiling/untapped potential guys in the past (see Barwin, Connor)
    6. If you wanted to draft for Houston, you had a chance to volunteer. I mock as if I were making the decisions, not necessarily how I think they will (though I cant imagine them passing on Cox if the real draft plays out this way and he slips to 26).

    But if you want another Connor Barwin pick, it would be Hill. Sky's the limit.

    Ah, well, whatever. Warren will just have to stay un-retired for another year. Barron or Still will do for the Pats at 27.

    Even though I am not the biggest fan of Jerel Worthy, I believe BB will love him if the draft fell in this order.

    In the NFL draft he's not going to make it to 27 either. We'll have to trade up to get him if we want him that badly. And, I think that might be a decent idea.

    One of the most maddening and difficult things was picking for the Patriots last year in the mock. It would have killed me if I wasn't bulletproof.

    1) Devon Still DT
    2) Mike Adams OT

    Most likely this selection will be traded to Vikings ( Stephen Hill WR )

    I love Jerel Worthy and I hope BB does, too. He seems like a BB type of DT, handles the run as a first priority.

    I vote for Mark Barron - S - Alabama. Our safety play was horrific last year. Don't want Landry if he wants more than a year. I would kick Ihedigbo, Barrett and Brown to the curb. Don't like any of them. I do like a couple of other players too; Still, Perry and Konz. But, Barron is my choice. Maybe Still or Perry fall to 31.

    Vote for Stephen Hill. WR not an immediate need but it is for the future, this kid is my binky as well :D

    I feel the sky is the limit with him, my vote would of gone to Fletcher Cox. Not a big fan of Barron, seems redundant to Chung.

    Devon Still would be my pick.

    And Mogamedogz, Cox is a great pick for Houston, by far the BPA. The only reason he fell that far, and people don't wan't Houston to take him is because he is the biggest Binky on the board (except for Derek Wolfe).

    Trade down. Don't like Barron, Hill, Still, or Worthy at the end of the 1st. The correct move would've been trading into the early 20s when both Jenkins and Wright were available.

    Jenkins and Wright? Who needs a couple of 180lb football players. Where's the beef? Trade up for F. Cox or C. Upshaw.

    I don't understand why Still isn't more highly rated. He's going to be a very, very good player. He's a perfect fit at 34 DE. When his technique is on, he's fantastic. He just needs consistency. Still is my number one choice anyway, so this is a no-brainer.
