2011 NFL Draft Thread: Robert Quinn, Brandon Harris Are Your Newest Mock Texans

Another week, another WalterFootball.com update to their mock draft. Let’s see what they have in store for Houston after the Combine and some pro day workouts.

1st Round – University of North Carolina OLB Robert Quinn

2nd Round – University of Miami (FL) CB Brandon Harris

3rd Round – Ole Miss NT Jerrell Powe

4th Round – University of North Carolina FS Deunta Williams

5th Round – Rutgers University SS Joe Lefeged

6th Round – University of Arizona OLB Rick Elmore

Not too much has changed with the Walter mock, we’ve got the addition of another late round. The sense that Houston will draft almost exclusively defensive players is a thought that is growing prevalent around the mock sites. I don’t disagree with the players. If I wanted to nitpick, I’d say this class is filled with a lot of unfamiliar schools for Texans draft classes. That should be a sign that there isn’t too much to quibble with here. In fact, Walter’s mock is pretty indicative of what we’re seeing from almost all Houston mocks which is…

1 – Prince Amukamara or best OLB available

2 – CB or best OLB available

3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 – Some combination of NT, FS, SS, and LBs.

There’s not a whole lot of variety out there, which makes mock reviews somewhat dull right now. Barring anything eye-opening or head-shaking during pro days (which are on-going), I don’t imagine many mocks to change. Texans fans should be prepping for a defense heavy draft. Hopefully, Rick Smith won’t let us down once again.
