  1. The biggest beef that I have with this pick is not necessarily the guy we selected, but how it's possible he may not step in and start immediately. With Smith, Carr, and Young in the slot, we would be set for one year, then could move on to a better corner than Carr at the CB2 slot. That's when it looks like Humphrey will make his biggest impact. Humphrey is not ready to start year one, and looks like he will need a redshirt year to really make a difference. Yet, by that reasoning, we could've selected Allen, Foster, Howard, or hell even Robinson, then selected Washington's Sidney Jones in the second. Jones is a better corner than Humphrey in my mind who will need a redshirt year too. That pairing of an elite player with Jones seems like the smartest thing we could've done.
  2. With the 11th pick in the seventh round, the Texans select: DeAngelo Brown, DT Louisville
  3. You should've taken the steelers. Maybe that would've been the last straw to push Ben into retirement lol
  4. With round 6 pick 8, the Houston Texans select: Colin Buchanan, OL University of Miami (Ohio)
  5. With the 4th pick in the 6th round, the Houston Texans select: James Onwualu, LB Notre Dame
  6. With the 9th pick in the 5th round, the Texans select: Joe Mathis, OLB, Washington
  7. Elijah Lee is a good linebacker in coverage and athleticism, but his tackling is so soft I don't expect the Ravens to pick him.
  8. Confirmed
  9. Really? I saw one or two mocks projecting him to go in the 4th. I like his tenacity and aggressive play. At the worst, I expect him to be a special teams standout. He's a fighter that refuses to quit. The NFL could always use another player like that
  10. Looks like the Boulware pick flew like a lead balloon
  11. With the 24th pick in the 4th round of the 2017 Forum Mock Draft, the Houston Texans select: Ben Boulware, WWE Superstar Clemson University
  12. He sure did. It would've been a long wait haha
  13. That's very reassuring to hear about Mahomes specifically mentioning Brees at the Combine. Very intriguing statistics on that Texas Tech team. He definitely did appear to have to singlehandedly keep that team in games at times. It was good to see him succeed in 2016 without his safety net DeAndre Washington as well. I'm reference to the point about Mahomes having good building blocks, I'm I'm in agreement. I liked what I saw on tape, especially his ability to throw on the run, keeping his eyes downfield as you said, and how most times he makes the correct reads. Yet again, I also saw how at times he'll make those 1-2 "ill-fated throws". That simply won't fly in the NFL, but with time, practice, and the mentorship of Drew Brees perhaps he can make the correct throw more often.
  14. I agree fully with all the points you have raised. I think his ceiling is as high or higher than anybody else's, but he also has the biggest chance to bust due to the issues you've highlighted. That being said, I think being picked by this Texans team is a great setup for Mahomes, because he gets to stay in Texas and he can sit behind a Hall of Fame QB for two years and learn from him. I think Drew Brees is the perfect mentor for him too, because of his work ethic and meticulous planning. If Mahomes can watch, learn and be teachable, when Brees decides to retire he can hopefully step in and play effectively.
  15. Whoops, my bad. Would you rather me edit the post to put in 5.3 or repost?
  16. With the 22nd pick in the third round of the 2017 Forum Mock Draft, the Texans are proud to welcome one of their own: Patrick Mahomes II, QB Texas Tech
  17. Texans give: Round 3, Pick 25 Round 5, pick 3 Vikings give: Round 3, Pick 22
  18. Good move trading up. I can guarantee he wouldn't have been there after pick 25. I agree with you completely
  19. Freedom never sleeps.
  20. Oh, you're right. I thought it was a 4.68.... my bad. A 4.62 is still a pretty terrible time for a cornerback in today's NFL.
  21. Hopefully that 4.7 was just a blip on the radar. He appears to be faster on tape. I expected he'd at least crack 4.6
  22. Straight savage
  23. I like Jarrad Davis a lot. He's a great athlete and there is a pretty steep drop off at ILB after him.
  24. Thank you. I would've picked Lawson had you gone with Moton... I think you got fantastic value with that pick. Not too long ago he was being discussed as a potential top 10 prospect. Agreed on the versatility of Moton.
  25. Thanks man, I agree completely on that comparison. The Texans desperately need the OL help too. I like him best at RG, but given the health record of Derek Newton at RT, he may be asked to kick outside. I would be thrilled if the Ravens got him... I think he'd be a good fit for our power run scheme.
