Round Two NFL Mock Draft: McShay And Kiper Weigh In On Texans

Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay of ESPN have weighed in on what the Texans might be looking to do at No. 42 as well this afternoon, and it looks like there are going to be a number of potential ways the Texans can approach the next two rounds.

Kiper has the Texans taking UCLA safety Rahim Moore, who would immediately fill the biggest need they had coming into the draft. With Eugene Wilson thankfully put out to pasture and Troy Nolan having proved nothing, actually addressing safety after ignoring it for the first nine year’s of the teams existence could be a smart move:

Houston’s secondary was a disaster in 2010. Moore is the best safety in this class.

McShay, on the other hand, gives them Pittsburgh DE/OLB Jabaal Sheard, who is a decent prospect in his own right, but comes up way short according to Football Outsiders’ SackSEER’s projection system. SackSEER looks at Sheard’s lack of short area burst in the combine workouts and projects that he won’t do much at the next level.
