SNOT: All Hail BPA!

Talk college basketball, prognosticate about the start of the baseball season, and rejoice that we are one week closer to the NFL draft.


For those that were following along for the last five hours, Mocking the Draft had itself a 3-round live community mock that I and Night Owl were fortunate to participate in. Reaches were scoffed at, boards crumbled, and everyone had a hearty laugh at the Jaguars, and at the end of the day yours truly came out with a shiny new quartet of imaginary Texans.

Round 1: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA

Round 2: Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech

Round 3: Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse

Round 3 comp: Sio Moore, ILB/OLB, UCONN

There was an air of...let's call it the passing of Keenan Allen, but I think in the end everything turned out just fine. If the draft shaped out like this Houston would have a solution for the inevitable departure of Antonio Smith, a troubled but truly gifted WR prospect in Da'Rick Rogers, a Bob Sanders-esque safety that will hurt people, and a versatile and athletic inside linebacker to pair with Brian Cushing. Not bad for three rounds.

What do you think, BRB? Did I screw this up royally, or would you be comfortable with your 2013 Texans if this mock became reality?
