    I don't know about you guys, but I don't think Smith is going to be that aggressive in order to get a WR. I think the 'WR's pool' is deep in this draft, plenty 1st and 2nd round talent ... It's not even sure we select a WR. I think an offensive lineman like Peter Konz is a possibility also, but that depends on Myers situation.

    Not a fan of that trade, or RealGM in general.

    How can Washington trade their 2012 first round pick twice in the same trade?:eek:

    I really don't get the point of mock drafts.

    Alston Jeffrey wasn't even mentioned we should keep our third and take him at #26. We just need a #2 WR not a #1.

    I don't think the Texans would pick Kendall Wright if he dropped to them at #26. He's not their kind of receiver. They'll take a flier on a track star in the 6th round, but if they draft a receiver high, he'll be big guy that can block and has good hands for catching in traffic. Game-breaking ability is secondary.

    I think the biggest issue is that Kareem Jackson is a cheap, solid option at CB for the next 3 years (at about 2M/yr). Rick Smith is NOT going to trade away that value, especially since he used a pretty high 1st rounder on Kareem. Also since Jason Allen is a FA this year.

    The Texans would esssentially be giving up THREE first round picks AND a third rounder, in order to move up 11 spots in a heavy WR draft. The FA market is also heavy with receivers who would have much more of an early impact than Wright.

    I actually thought he had done a decent mock until I got to the Texans.

    a 1, 2, 3, and Kareem Jackson to move up 11 spots? That's unheard of. Who does this guy think we are, the Raiders?

    I agree. We already have Jacoby Jones for that! :grin:

    What an asinine trade. We could just wait until 26 and take Sanu according to his mock, and not have to mortgage our future. RealGM needs to stick to basketball because their football writers know jackspit.

    You know this is a bad mock when Alshon Jeffery is draft in the 3rd round.

    I saw this last night and laughed. I agree that I can see the Texans not drafting Wright if he fell to us at 26 let alone move up that far to get him. Unless the Eagles plan on cutting Aso, DRC, or Asante they have to need for Kareem

    not necessarily. There are some serious concerns about his speed and separation ability. A 3rd might be a little much, but if he runs a 4.7 then a lot of people are going to second guess him

    You know, we do need the speed but if Jeffrey really is a one-dimensional Mike Wallace type, he'd be terrible here. We all know Schaub under-throws the deep ball and usually Dre bails him out by coming back to get it.

    We need a guy with speed that can go up and get the ball too.

    He meant game breaking as in for our team not the others.

    If Schaub under throws balls then you need size more than speed. You need a big receiver that can out jump corners and make a play on the ball.

    I agree 100%. Way too aggressive considering the way the Texans normally go about their business.

    We'd be giving up way too much.

    And I agree that KJ isn't going anywhere.

    I'd like to see some kind of move up for Michael Floyd though.

    I heard about this on the radio and they said this mock draft was done by Casserly our dip **** former GM. Actually, i just looked it up and he feels that Smith can fall to us at the 26th spot.
