2016 NFL Mock Draft Thread, Version 9.0

Well, erm. Our roster has changed significantly since this time last week, and now we're mocking around the clock to select mock draft picks that reflect our needs.

Did they do well? What can they do to improve the roster through the draft? How would you structure the draft board?

As I explained in Version 1.0 of this thread, we're working to corral all mock drafts into a single location. This thread is the eighth in a series that will continue to post every Thursday at noon right up through the first night of the draft, which is scheduled for Thursday, April 28, 2016. If you need a refresher on what to expect this offseason, check out the NFL Calendar.

This is your place to post your mock drafts for the Texans, where you've conducted your mocks, your grades, and any sites fellow mockers can use to get some information on the prospects you've selected.

Since this time last week, Arian Foster has been released, Ben Jones has signed with the Titans, Brandon Brooks has signed with the Eagles,

The Texans have been busy re-signing our own guys, and finding others to fill our new holes. We've re-signed Nick Novak for our K; Shane Lechler has decided to continue his punting career in his home state; Charles James will continue to wear happy socks in Houston; Jeff Adams will continue to provide depth along our offensive line; and Chris Clark will continue to play swing tackle, something very important given the injury to Duane Brown in the final regular season game.

We've also had to fill the holes left by the departures of Foster, Jones, and Brooks. Tony Bergstrom has come from the Raiders to play center, Lamar Miller has been signed to fill the void left by Foster, and Jeff Allen is coming to the Land of Real BBQ to play guard.

Perhaps the most important signing of all--and the one that might completely reset y'all's mock draft boards--came yesterday, when the Texans signed Brock Osweiler to play quarterback. Surely (please, Than) this means Brian Hoyer will be gone from the roster soon. While I'm sure Tom Savage doesn't care, Osweiler was signed for four years.

A note: To help the Masthead (and your fellow BRBers), please don't post or discuss your mocks anywhere except in these weekly Mock Draft threads. Also, each thread will close once a new one is opened, though you will still be able to link to your posts and reference them.

Mock to your hearts' content.
