Found April 15, 2012 on State of the Texans:

This is all for fun and gives a decent insight on what could happen in a War Room for a NFL Team. Yes, there is numerous hours that go into what NFL teams do and this is in no way to show up the hard work those NFL teams do to make their respective teams better. Here is our fun with the upcoming draft.

We will keep this updated as the draft progresses.



Sitting on Twitter one evening I received a random tweet from @365FantasyFBall to join him and @Jason_Madson on a Twitter NFL Draft with the upcoming prospects on a site called Mock One. The site is run by Brandon Nall who does great work keeping up with all of this mass information. This is the 4th installment and all 7 rounds are played out accordingly. There are trades and analysis of each pick, and has been a little taxing on the brain. I am currently the assistant G.M. and get to throw my two cents in to our G.M., @365FantasyFBall.

I decided to track the draft of the Texans through this #MockFour Draft as we go through the process. Here is the rundown.


Start of the Draft: Texans Picks.

1.26 (26th overall) , 2.26 (58th overall), 3.13 (76th overall), 4.4 (99th overall), 4.26 (121th overall), 5.26 (161st overall), 6.26 (195th overall) , 7.26 (233rd overall)


So early in the draft there was a thought of trading up to get wide receiver Michael Floyd of Notre Dame to fill the need to help the receiver corps for years to come, but some logical talk we decided to sit and wait. With the board moving quick the thought of drafting Alabama’s Courtney Upshaw (OLB) was a strong possibility, but then the emails for trade offers came in. There were two teams who came with offers the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.

The offers were solid and both had their pluses but at the end of the day, the Eagles had an offer we could not refuse.


The Deal:

Eagles Get: #26 overall (Chose Courtney Upshaw) and the 7th round pick (#233 overall)

Texans Get: #46 overall, #104 overall, #114 overall, #172 overall


So the Texans picks look like this heading into the second round

2.14 (46th overall), 2.26 (58th overall), 3.13 (76th overall), 4.4 (99th overall), 4.9 (104th overall) 4.19 (114th overall), 4.26 (121st overall), 5.26 (161st overall), 6.02 (172nd overall), 6.26 (195th overall)

* the 104th overall came from the Panthers in a trade with the Eagles.
