2011 NFL Mock Draft: Where Is Robert Quinn Falling In Mock Drafts?

It has been my assertion for several weeks now that though I'd like to see Robert Quinn fall to the Texans on April 28th, I just don't think it's going to happen. His potential and importance of position (pass-rushers are of course a valuable commodity) will see him selected in the top 10, I believe.

With that, let's see where he is falling in some of the more popular and/or highly-regarded NFL Mock Drafts:

Rob Rang, CBS Sports
Quinn: 6th, Cleveland
Texans: Aldon Smith, DE/OLB, Missouri

Chad Reuter, CBS Sports
Quinn: 10th, Washington
Texans: Cameron Jordan, DE, California

National Football Post
Quinn: 5th, Arizona
Texans: Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue (UGH)

Lance Zierlein
Quinn: 5th, Arizona
Texans: Julio Jones, WR, Alabama

Adam Caplan
Texans: Robert Quinn, DE/OLB, North Carolina

Scout.com
Quinn: 5th, Arizona
Texans: Cameron Jordan, DE, California

Walter Football
Quinn: 6th, Cleveland
Texans: Aldon Smith, DE/OLB, Missouri

Peter Schrager
Quinn: 10th, Washington
Texans: JJ Watt, DE, Wisconsin

I have a short list of "respected" mocks, and most of these are on that list. I did not select mocks that fit my personal narrative for this entry. Clearly, I just share the popular opinion with a lot of other draft analysts. Quinn just isn't likely to be there on April 28, so Texans fans should prepare themselves accordingly. 

It says a lot that Quinn landed in Houston in only one of these eight mock drafts. If you're not a fan of Aldon Smith or JJ Watt joining the Texans, perhaps you should pick out an inconspicuous area of your wall to punch out now, so you're prepared to adequately react on Draft Day.
