2015 NFL Draft Top 25

By Tyler Lurkins

Check out my mock draft: Mock Draft Database

1. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon-For the most part, Mariota is mechanically sound and an

accurate passer.

2. Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia-Without Gurley, Georgia’s offense is nonexistent. With many

RB’s falling out the 1st

first players off the board.

3. Jamies Winston, QB, Florida St.-Florida St. will survive without Jamies, but it’s hard to

ignore the electricity he brings to the field. Winston needs some polishing mechanically,

but is the reigning Heisman winner, and the leader of a potent, ranked, Florida St. team.

4. Cedric Ogbuehi, T, Texas A and M-A and M is churning out O lineman recently. Ogbuehi

is a tremendous pass blocker, with great balance, and sound footwork.

5. Randy Gregory, LB/DE, Nebraska-Gregory, IF he can stay healthy, will rise head and

shoulders above the other pass rushers. A unique talent, Gregory will remind some of

Dion Jordan.

6. Ifo Okpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon-A sure fire first round pick a year ago, Okpre-Olomu is a

blanket corner with an eye for the ball.

7. Vic Beasley, DE/LB, Clemson-Beasley is a pass rushing specialist who decided to play one

more year of minor league football. Beasley shows great high end speed with the ability

to turn the edge.

8. Tre Jackson, G/T, Florida St.-An absolute mauler, the 330 lb Jackson opens holes that a

Buick can slide through. In an era of teams searching for high energy athletes, Jackson

will be a top selection.

9. Dante Fowler, Jr., LB/DE, Florida-Fowler could be the guy that shoots up to the top 5

as the season progresses. Fowler is a powerful rusher with speed, but has the athletic

ability to possibly drop into coverage in a 34 scheme.

round recently, Gurley could buck the trend, and be one of the

10. Leonard Williams, DE, USC-Williams is a monster along the D line. He may not be

explosive enough to be a 43 end in the NFL, nor beefy enough to be an undertackle, but

will be a disruptive talent as a 5 tech end.

11. Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA-As a QB, Hundley’s value should be much higher. Yet he still

hasn’t developed into a true passer. Hundley is a mobile weapon with a howitzer for an

arm. A top 5 talent, Hundley is still a project in the NFL

12. Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio St.-Possibly the most refined DT in the draft, Bennett has the

strength and technique to be good, but needs to bulk it up to be great.

13. Cameron Erving, T, Florida St.-Erving may not translate immediately into an NFL ready

LT. However, he is another flashy athlete who is strong at the point of attack.

14. Alvin Dupree, DE/LB, Kentucky-Dupree may not end the year with the stats of the top

prospects. Fact of the matter, he is the biggest threat on a poor team, and will be

targeted often. Dupree can’t be stopped with 1 on 1 blocking. He’s an efficient pass

rusher with the ability to drop into coverage if needed.

15. Andrus Peat, T, Stanford-Peat will be a solid tackle in the NFL. Powerful, but not

necessarily showing the bend or finesse to be a LT. Peat can be a day 1 starter at RT,

with the ability to slide to LT in a pinch.

16. Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn-Coates carries an NFL ready frame with tremendous speed.

Easily the first WR off the board, a good season could push Coates into the top 10.

17. Kevin Hogan, QB, Stanford-Hogan will be able to slide up the board. The traditional

pocket passer, Hogan can get to the outside if under pressure. As long as the accuracy

looks good, Hogan has the rest of the fundamentals to be a NFL QB.

18. Brandon Scherff, T, Iowa-The most fundamentally sound tackle in the draft, Scherff will

have to show he can stay healthy. Also, will Scherff show the strength to be a steady

run blocker in a non zone scheme?

19. Shilique Calhoun, DE, Michigan St.-Before the start of the season, Calhoun is a top 5 guy.

Though an elite prospect, it’s easy to see the Calhoun needs to add strength and pounds

to play DE at the NFL level. Calhoun’s skills will not translate to a 34 scheme.

20. Kyler Fackrell, LB, Utah St.-Fackrell is the definite sleeper in this draft class. He is an

untouchable force on the Utah St. defense. Fackrell, on paper, has the frame to be a 34

star, and has the field presence to back it all up.

21. Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan St.-Waynes shouldn’t jump off your television, but he is a

solid, blanket corner. In many circles it’s whispered he is better than his predecessor,

Dennard.

22. Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor-Petty is a field general with a stellar arm. Will his lack of pocket

experience drop his stock? Petty is still one of the top 25 prospects in college football.

23. Landon Collins, S, Alabama-Collins is a feared hitter with the ability to play sideline to

sideline. He should be the first safety drafted, but Collins needs to put more stats on

paper to be a top 15 guy.

24. Daniel Fitzpatrick, S/CB, Tennessee St.-This draft is deep, meaning a 6’2” 200 lb

interception machine from a small school could shoot up the boards. Fitzpatrick

produces. He is always around the ball, has the body to cover any NFL receiver, and is

versatile.

25. Dorial Green-Beckham, WR-DGB is hands down the best receiver since A.J. Green.

Obviously he has had his problems, but this is a league for 2nd

chased Randy Moss. Would a team let Megatron slip out of the 1st

will take DGB, assuming he keeps up with his workouts.

NOTABLES

Markus Golden DE/LB Missouri

Kurtis Drummond, S, Michigan St.

Noah Spence, LB, Ohio St.

Shaq Thompson, LB, Washington

Ron Darby, CB, Florida St.

La’el Collins, G/T, LSU

Mario Edwards, Jr. DE, Florida St.

I know I don’t usually write a fantasy football column but this year I am interested in some players that may have either gone undrafted or drafted late. These players may be available for a lower price and mid season may end up starting for your Fantasy Football team.

 

1. Markus Wheaton, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

I know Wheaton has had two games already and has had pretty good games. However, I still believe that he is a little under the radar compared to receivers of his caliber. He is the #2 in Pittsburgh and coming into this year I believed that Antonio Brown was underrated and Wheaton is as well. You can still go out and get Wheaton for probably a 4th RB or a decent TE at this rate. He hasn’t scored any TD’s yet but I believe he is bound to in the weeks to come. With all of this said I believe Wheaton is a great flex moving forward and has the upside to be a good Wide Receiver 2.

 

2. Just Hunter, WR, Tennessee Titans

Ok I will give full disclosure on this one I am a Tennessee Titans fan. However, that is a reason that I am high on Justin Hunter as well. He is a great redzone target as well as a deep threat. The Titans play a fairly easy schedule and he is going to get a lot of opportunities for big plays and TD’s. He hasn’t gone off yet so at this point he is definitely worth giving up a bigger name player for a higher upside player. If you have a WR or RB on your bench that will not play anyway why not try to make a play for someone with huge upside. I also like Jake Locker as a sleeper as well but with his injury concerns I am not going to do a big write up on him.

 

3. Cam Newton, QB, Carolina

At this point Cam is being undervalued by NFL analysts and fantasy analysts. Newton has been a top 5 fantasy QB every year and even after missing week 1 I believe he could be again this year as well. If you are in a 4pt per passing td league he has huge upside. If you are in a 6 pt per passing his value goes down a little bit but he is still a top 10 QB for sure. Right now before he has a big game is the time to make a trade for him and get him in your starting lineup. The QB’s I would trade for him would be Jay Cutler, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, Nick Foles and any other of the lower tier qb’s. Now is the time to make the move on him.

 

4. Toby Gerhart, RB, Jacksonville

This one is an interesting one as I am not completely sold on his talent. But you can probably get him for pretty cheap still as he had an injury sprain and a below avg week one. So just for potential if you can get him as your 3rd RB I would pull the trigger on this.

 

Really low Buy: Bishop Sankey, RB, Titans

I know that he isn’t starting at this point but if you have a bench spot for him I believe his talent is going to end up giving him a much bigger role for the Titans in the running and passing game. He is probably really cheap right now and over the next couple weeks it probably won’t take a lot to snag him.

 

Lastly, I have just a couple of tips. At this point Knowshon Moreno had a good week one and he could continue to succeed. However, if you can make a play to get one of the top RB’s I would do it without hesitation.

7 Round Tampa Bay Mock Draft by Tony

 

A prediction of the selections for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2014 NFL Mock Draft. I wouldn’t bet on any of these picks as the NFL draft is so unpredictable but if you are into gambling check out  chipanalyst online casino guide.

 

Bucs thumb 2014 Tampa Bay Bucs 7 Round Mock Draft1st round: KHALIL MACK (Buffalo)- The top OLB in the 2014 NFL Mock Draft

2nd round: JIMMY GAROPPOLO (Eastern Illinois) – A lot of draft experts believe that Garoppolo could be a late 1st round selection. If he falls to the 2nd I could see the Bucs taking a shot on him.


4th round: BILLY TURNER (North Dakota St.)

5th round: DONTE FOSTER (Ohio)

7th round: ROB BLANCHFLOWER (UMass)

I think Penn will be gone, too! I had a feeling both might go. Ive been hearing Nicks might go but I doubt he goes. They would d have to trade him. I’m starting to wonder if we might end up taking Matthews. I heard we were looking at Eugene Monroe as well.  I wonder if we are going after Jarius Byrd as well because we do need help on the back end. I’ve heard FAs like Byrd, Hester, Tillman, Allen & Monroe as some FAs.  Anyway there’s a DE/LB, QB, OL, WR & TE that they need. Don’t be surprised if Mike Williams goes somewhere as a big time receiver. These are just some of my thoughts on the Bucs draft and as I previously said this is not an online casino like Online Casino Wiki describes but a draft site.

2014 NFL Free Agency

By Tyler Lurkins

Here is a list of the NFL’s top free agents, by position, and their possible destinations.

Mock Draft Database

QB

  1. Michael Vick-Vick should end up in Jacksonville.  His ego won’t let him be a backup for another season, and the Jags will have a system set up for him.
  2. Shaun Hill-Houston should actively pursue Hill.  Though not largely discussed, Hill has been a strong armed, consistent backup in Detroit, and will garner several looks around the NFL as a bridge QB.
  3. Josh Freeman-If Freeman signs anywhere but Oakland, he should be institutionalized.  Given multiple chances, Freeman has only succeeded under Oakland’s OC, Greg Olson.

RB

  1. Maurice Jones-Drew-MJD should be courted hard by the Dolphins.  He will be given the keys to the ignition, with little sharing of the load.
  2. Darren McFadden-Dallas will probably throw the most cash at McFadden.  Jerry Jones has been a longtime supporter of McFadden and will toss injury concerns out of the window.
  3. Ben Tate-Every team will take a look at Tate, who saw success in Houston.  Ultimately, he must realize he is a product of a system currently ran by Kyle Shanahan in Cleveland.

WR

  1. Anquan Boldin-Boldin isn’t leaving San Francisco
  2. Eric Decker-Carolina needs a set of steady, durable hands.  They should realize the value of Decker versus that of a later round rookie receiver.  If Smith is cut from the roster, Decker is almost a must have.
  3. Hakeem Nicks-Nicks will be at the top of most teams’ wish lists.  Indy should throw the most at him, and he will be in a situation to be a team leader and winner.

OT

  1. Brandon Albert-This will be a tight race for Albert, and I’m sure many teams will be in the mix.  Ultimately, Miami has the scheme for Albert, and really must improve line play to win.
  2. Eugene Monroe-Monroe will stir a bidding war, and the team with the most space, wins.  Carolina will be the team in the end with the success, and talent, to get Monroe on board.
  3. Marshall Newhouse-Newhouse only makes the list because of the need for quality LT’s.  Newhouse is not elite, but has played the position with success.  I feel Arizona fits best for Newhouse, who won’t demand a ton of money.
  4. Michael Oher-Oher played poorly last season, but his versatility will be highly sought after.  If a team can convince Oher to play guard, I’m positive he will be a perennial pro bowler.  The obvious play is Indy.  The coach, the scheme, and the need is there for Oher.
  5. Roger Saffold-The issue with Saffold is he wants so badly to be a LT.  He is a pro bowl caliber guard, albeit with injury concerns.  Cleveland should be his landing spot.  Saffold will go to his hometown, be given a little more money, and handed the LG spot.
  6. Jared Veldheer-Veldheer is a young, growing talent.  Oakland will never let him go.

 

Defensive Ends

  1. Jared Allen-Allen winds up in Denver.  It’s a locale no expert thinks of, but the aging, slower, Allen doesn’t need to be the dominant pass rusher in Denver.  Denver also gives the best chance for Allen to sniff a super bowl.
  2. Michael Bennett-The Seahawks are actively pursuing Bennett.
  3. Red Bryant-Houston needs a talented nose tackle.  Bryant is a big man who is hitting north of 30 years old, and end, even in a 34 scheme, is out of the question.
  4. Lamarr Houston-New England will be the only competitor to Oakland.  In the end, Oakland has the tag to keep Houston.
  5. Michael Johnson-Though Atlanta is putting the heat on Johnson, he’ll end up in Minnesota.  Minnesota offers more money, and Johnson owes much of his success to Zimmer.
  6. Arthur Jones-I really see Baltimore letting Jones, who will want a significant pay hike, go.  Green Bay has the cap room, and really needs to get back into “win now” mode.
  7. Justin Tuck-Tuck will be gone from the Giants, they just won’t pay him.  Philadelphia is a good fit for Tuck, who will be more of a situational rusher from the 5 technique.

 

Defensive Tackles

  1. B.J. Raji-There are a ton of good DT’s hitting the market, but Raji will command the most attention.  I can really see Baltimore pushing for him.  Ngata really needs to be on the edge, and he can replace Jones.  The team has looked for a big NT for some time, and Raji won’t be too expensive.

Linebackers

  1. D’Qwell Jackson-The Jets really need two new ILB’s.  Jackson could be one of them, as there will be plenty of traditional run stuffers in the draft.
  2. Brian Orakpo-Washington won’t let Orakpo go without a huge bounty.
  3. Shaun Phillips-Arizona needs more from their LB’s.  Phillips won’t cost a bunch, and Arizona needs to spend some money for improvement.
  4. Jason Worilds-Worilds isn’t going to garner a ton of attention, but the NFL network keeps hyping him up.  I can see Philly making a huge run on Worilds, as he is very knowledgeable on a working NFL 3-4 scheme, as Cole may be cut and Graham/Barwin haven’t been elite either.

 

Cornerbacks

  1. Vontae Davis-San Francisco may be in a market for a bigger corner, they have a bit of room under the cap, and they have Vontae Davis’ better brother.
  2. Brent Grimes-Grimes played well in Miami, but is still isn’t very far removed from a serious injury.  He’s well liked in Miami, and they will pay him what he asks.
  3. Captain Munnerlyn-Munnerlyn shouldn’t be allowed to leave Carolina.  They should be able to resign him for under the amount of a tag.
  4. Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie-Not sure why anyone would be willing to pay DRC much.  Again, he’s a media favorite, not a star by any means.  If DRC leaves Denver, New England may be the only team willing to take him.
  5. Asante Samuel-Once a star, Samuel is aging.  Kansas City would love to have him, and it wouldn’t cost them an arm and a leg.
  6. Sam Shields-With so many teams in cap disarray, Shields may not see the money he wants.  Carolina would be a great place for Shields, who would look amazing across from Munnerlyn.
  7. Charles Tillman-Tillman would be best suited in Chicago or Tampa.  With name recognition alone, Buffalo would probably throw the money at Tillman until he signed.
  8. Alterraun Verner-Verner is a top name in the market, I’m sure Tennessee won’t let him leave.

 

Safety

  1. Jarius Byrd-Buffalo isn’t going to let him go uncompensated.
  2. T.J. Ward-Cleveland can’t afford to let Ward walk.  He’ll stay for the money.

I’ve mentioned the possible cuts enough, it’s obvious and we can all figure it out. Who will the Rams keep? The Rams may muster about $5 million in cleared space after the draft picks are signed. If that’s the case, what free agents are available?

The Rams have exclusive rights to Tim Barnes. Barnes isn’t setting the world on fire, but isn’t a bad center in a pinch either. Shelley Smith had been considered a developmental guy, well he never developed. If cheap enough, Smiths familiarity to the offense will be more valuable than a undrafted FA with upside. Giordano is a reliable special teamer. Finally, Darian Stewart is a favorite. The potential remains with Stewart, but he still hasn’t managed to take advantage of his opportunities.

The Rams won’t seek out free agents. Much of their depth issues on defense will be found via undrafted FA’s that will cost nothing. Look for them to find at least one offensive lineman, perhaps a discarded DT, and maybe a safety. As far as free agents, here is a good starting list of players that St. Louis may take a look at:

1. Denario Alexander-If you grab him at the league minimum, is he worth the injury concerns? He’s a former Ram and Missouri Tiger.

2. Pat Angerer-Another frequenter of the training table. Angerer is a solid backup at SLB and ILB who could be had for cheap.

3. Terrance Cody-No one could reign in Cody’s weight. Is he a head case with no motivation? Could he be a reclamation project for a team that needs a run stuffer?

4. Oniel Cousins-Cousins had a high ceiling when drafted in 2008. He’s a wide bodied, versatile lineman that Boudreau would enjoy working with. Will he be cheap enough?

5. Pat Devlin-Devlin is a personal favorite of mine. Coming out of Delaware, I thought he had the tools to be a quality NFL backup. If the Rams see a 25 year old Devlin as a backup, they wouldn’t need to burn a draft pick.

6. Reed Doughty-Doughty is an over 30 safety with limited excess. With Williams as a former coach, Doughty may be more talented, and cheaper, than Giordano.

7. Johnny Jolly-Jolly has had his moments. Playing a 5 technique end, Jolly has some explosion but his size could make him an affordable run stuffer in the middle.

8. Taylor Mays-Mays has linebacker size and cornerback speed. The Niners and the Bengals couldn’t refine his talent. Mays could likely be a league minimum guy, with bonuses, for the secondary.

9. Chad Rineheart-Much like Cousins, Rineheart is very versatile.

10. Alameda Ta’Amu-Some felt Ta’Amu would be a first rounder in 2012. His character got him booted out of Pittsburgh, and he isn’t fitting well in a 34. At 23, he could be worth the risk if Arizona lets him walk.

7 Round Mock Draft for the St. Louis Rams by Tyler Lurkins

Follow Tyler at @STLdrafts

First Round(pre trade)

2. Jake Matthews, T, Texas A and M-I have a friend very knowledgeable friend on twitter, who I respect, but says he stops reading any mock with the Rams taking an O lineman. This friend wants Watkins, half of St. Louis wants Watkins. Watkins is not worth the #2 spot. The O line was ranked in the top of the NFL. Yet, Wells and Dahl are likely cap casualties, Saffold has never played more than 10 games and will want high dollars, Williams and Shelly Smith are free agents, and fan favorite, Jake Long, is coming off of knee surgery. Though Fisher and Boudreau have never drafted a lineman in the first round, Fisher has loyalty to the Matthews family. This team needs a young, future star, to protect Bradford, Long isn’t the answer.

As far as Watkins, he will not be a true #1 for at least one season. Remember, it took Julio Jones a year to develop. Watkins is not Megatron, Fitzgerald, or A.J. Green. He needs time. His routes need polished. Watkins never went over the middle in a pro style offense. My opinion is, this is due to (A) Clemson not wanting Watkins to get smoked, (B)Clemson knew Watkins, and his slight frame, would look up and drop the ball, or (C)He was too damn fast streaking on a fly route. All this is still forgiving Watkins has injury AND character concerns. Watkins fanatics need to read this again, Watkins will be a legit #1, but will not be what St. Louis needs for 2014. Finally, fans need to realize that Quick has only played football for 6 years, one of which was spent on the bench due to injury. The Rams have faith in him.

13. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville-This draft class is weak in safeties. You won’t find a starter in the mid to late rounds. Unless the Rams have the utmost faith in McCloud or Stewart, they will not hesitate to move McDonald to SS, and select a hammer like Pryor.

ROUND TWO

44. Ryan Shazier, WLB, Ohio St.-Don’t be fooled to see Greg Williams move Laurinitis to SLB, and Ogletree to the middle on plays. Remember, Laurinitis isn’t the best coverage guy out there, and excels at playing along the line. He struggled in a Gregg Williams minded D once. At any rate, this team will look for a very explosive LB who goes sideline to sideline. 4-3 linebackers typically slide, think Lavonte David, and I can see Shazier available here. Especially with 18 teams, between pick 15 and pick 44, running a 3-4 defense. Ogletree would move to SLB. Before anyone bites my head off about Ogletree, search Williams’ scheme, the three LB’s will be interchangeable on blitzing packages.

ROUND THREE

75. Louchiez Purifoy, CB, Florida-Finnegan will more than likely be cut. That leaves Jenkins, McGee, and Johnson. Purifoy is of the same stature of Johnson, but far more talented. You’ve heard it enough, this draft is deep. Purifoy would have been a top 50 talent last year. Purifoy has the attitude and physical play to be attractive to Fisher and Gregg Williams. Easily competing with Johnson for a starting spot, Purifoy could be best served playing the nickel for one season.

ROUND FOUR

106. Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia-This may be a tough pill for Rams fan to swallow. Bradford doesn’t necessarily have injury concerns, but has had some freak instances. He had his ankle rolled up, he was pushed out of bounds awkwardly, and lets never forget his college shoulder surgery. This team can not continue without a true talent backing up Bradford. Murray doesn’t have the desired size, but is an amazing general who understands pro offenses, and SEC defenses.

ROUND FIVE

143. Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers-A good combine could vault Coleman into the 2nd round. The film on Coleman shows an NFL receiver, running NFL routes, but playing very soft and unaggressive. Coleman will not blow you away with speed either. To me though, he’s every bit as potent as Mike Evans. The difference is Evans plays with attitude and power. Coleman, with the right coaching, could be a tremendous sleeper for any team, starting week 1.

ROUND SIX

172. De’Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon-This team wants a change of pace back. Though regarded a better prospect than 2nd rounder Michael James, I will consider him more of a 6th rounder like Kenjon Barner. The organization has desperately wanted Pead to live up to his 2nd round hype. With as many chances as he had been given, the Rams won’t hesitate to upgrade Pead.

ROUND SEVEN

203. Jonathan Brown, LB, Illinois-Brown’s talent has been buried around poor collegiate talent. Another issue is Brown will not test off the charts at the combine. However, Brown is very talented. He can play all three LB spots and excel in special teams. I believe with good coaching, and a new attitude, Brown will be a surprise contributor to the Rams in 2014.

Houston Texans 7 Round Mock Draft

By RJ Marceau

Let me know what you think on Twitter: @Raymond_Marceau

Hey guys, this is my Houston 7 Round Mock. This is what I think they should do and will explain why.

1st Round: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

In most mock drafts people have the Houston Texans picking Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater. Even I had the Texans choosing Bortles in my latest mock draft. I realized that all these QB’s have many questions. If QB is on their mind then they should wait to the 2nd or 3rd round. Clowney is easily the #1 prospect and can make this defense a force to be reckoned with.

2nd Round: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

The QB class this year is far from the best class ever. In my opinion the Top 5 QB’s talent wise and potential are pretty close to each other. Instead of taking a QB #1 overall Houston picks Clowney to solidify this defense. Carr can sling the ball and develop well into Bill O’Brien’s offense.

3rd Round: Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin

The Texans the last couple years have been devastated by LB injuries specifically ILB. They need a player that can be a great addition with Brian Cushing. Borland can be this years Kiko Alonso who wasn’t a 1st day selection and was a stud this season.

4th Round: Will Sutton, DT/NT, Arizona State

The Texans have Clowney and JJ Watt on their defensive line. Earl Mitchell hasn’t been horrible but mediocre. Sutton has been great at Arizona State but seen draft plummet since his mediocre year and not so good Senior Bowl. If Sutton can find his play from 2012 and team that with Watt and Clowney this can be a dominant defensive line and help the LB’s and DB’s.

5th Round: Jeremy Gallon, WR, Michigan

The Texans offense seems to have all the pieces in place with Foster, Johnson, Hopkins and the TE group. A player that has been like dead weight since Gary Kubiak drafted him is Keshawn Martin. He can’t make plays and doesn’t spread the secondary. Gallon who is smaller can excel in the slot and help the QB.

6th Round: Caleb Lavey, ILB, Oklahoma State

The Texans have addressed LB with Borland but will Cushing stay healthy. If not we may have to resort to an old veteran or Daryl Sharpton who seems to be injured every year. If Lavey and Borland can stay healthy and productive maybe the Texans let the Injury plagued Cushing walk.

7th Round: J.C. Copeland, FB, LSU

I was thinking about mocking a RB here but Houston has Dennis Johnson and Ray Graham who were rookies last year both undrafted and seem like decent back ups 3rd down guys. Houston signed Greg Jones to a 1 year deal and at age 33 when the season starts is he worth resigning which is extra salary space for possible CB needs.
