First Round – Trae Waynes, CB Michigan State
Second Round – Denzel Perryman, ILB Miami
Third Round – Donovan Smith, OT Penn State
Fourth Round – Bryce Petty, QB Baylor
You thought I forgot, didn’t you?
Fifth Round – Deontay Greenberry, WR Houston
This could be one of those Saturday ‘he’s right down the street, so come on in’ press conferences ala James Casey in 2009. He blew it up with the Coogs (over 70 catches in two different seasons) and makes one-handed catches (that’s very ‘in’ right now). He’ll need to add to that 6-3, 200 pound frame but as J.J. said on NFL Honors, we have “lots and lots of food” here.
Sixth Round – Jean Sifrin, TE UMass
I know I used to be their voice, so I’m biased. But bear with me. The kid is 6-7 and 250 pounds. Forty two catches might not seem like a lot but he averaged over 15 yards per catch. He made a one handed grab against Colorado that made Sports Center. I also feel it’s not a complete Texans draft without taking a tight end somewhere.
Seventh Round – Malcolm Brown, RB Texas
Brown has done a nice job in the 40 acres backfield for a school that hasn’t been scaring anybody through the year lately. It’s the 7th round and it’s time to throw caution to the wind. Brown is 222 and can move the pile. He has a chance to learn from the best and grab a few carries while he can. Plus, it’s about time the Texans reloaded a Longhorn onto the roster.
Leave your comments below. I bet you’re wondering how I’ve done in years past.
Actually, I usually get most of the position groups right and within a round or two (or three, or four). And last year I had them taking Savage at some point.
