Texans Mock Draft Machine: Version 2.0

Posted Mar 29, 2011

With less than a month to go until the 2011 NFL Draft less, check out who we have going to the Texans at No. 11 overall in the second edition of our Texans Mock Draft Machine.


The 2011 NFL Draft is less than a month away. Who will the Texans take with the 11th overall pick?

We took a stab at that question two weeks ago with our first-ever Texans Mock Draft Machine, which surveyed 15 mocks from around the web to project the top-10 picks. We’ve updated the results from each mock and added a new one to the mix for Version 2.0 of the Mock Machine.

A different expert will make the Texans’ pick at No. 11 each week based on our projected top-10. This week, that expert was Wes Bunting, the director of scouting at the National Football Post.

Our full methodology, including a link to each of the 16 surveyed mock drafts, can be found at the bottom of the page. Here are the results of our second Texans Mock Draft Machine:

10

Washington Redskins

Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
Also receiving votes: Green (2), Jake Locker (2), Quinn (2), Aldon Smith (2), Amukamara (1), Newton (1)

6 (38%)

The Texans' pick (made by Wes Bunting of the National Football Post):

11

Houston Texans

Robert Quinn, DE/OLB, North Carolina

 

 

Bunting: “I would go with Robert Quinn here. I think he’s the best pass rusher on the board; he gets the slight edge over Aldon Smith from Missouri. He’s a little more fluid. I think he’d be more comfortable standing up. Good first step. He sudden, he’s powerful, explosive, uses his arms well to disengage, to drop that shoulder around the edge. The Houston Texans need a guy who can stand up and rush from a two-point stance in their 34 front. I think he would be the ideal fit for the Texans at No. 11… I have Robert Quinn, I believe, as the fourth- or fifth-rated best player in the entire draft.”

Bunting’s pick jibes with our survey’s consensus. Six of the mock drafts have Quinn going to the Texans. Nebraska’s Prince Amukamara, with four votes, was the next-most popular pick for the Texans. Purdue’s Ryan Kerrigan received two votes, and three players – Georgia’s Justin Houston, Missouri’s Aldon Smith and Wisconsin’s J.J. Watt – got one vote apiece.

METHODOLOGY: We polled 16 mock drafts, tabulating how many times a player was picked for each of the top-10 teams in the draft. A player who got the most “votes,” as we’ll call them, at each team was the pick. There were a couple of exceptions where a player was the top vote-getter for more than one team. That player went to the team where he had a higher number of votes, and the other team ended up with the player who had the next-highest number of votes.

All of the mocks used were the author/website’s most current mock as of March 29 at 10 a.m. CT.

The mock drafts in our survey: Mel Kiper (ESPN.com), Todd McShay (ESPN.com), Don Banks (SI.com), Nolan Nawrocki (Pro Football Weekly), Evan Silva (Pro Football Talk), Chad Reuter (NFL Draft Scout/CBS), Rob Rang (NFL Draft Scout/CBS), Russ Lande (Sporting News), Wes Bunting (National Football Post), Pat Kirwan (NFL.com), Michael Lombardi (NFL.com), Steve Wyche (NFL.com), John McClain (Houston Chronicle), Lance Zierlein (Houston Chronicle), Walter Football, OurLads.com.
