The NFL draft will be here before we know it.  Now that Free Agency has settled down, team needs have come into focus.  That could mean only one thing – it’s time for another mock draft!  But rather than us sitting back and throwing darts at the wall, we thought we’d let you join in the fun.  We’ll roll through the draft order and give each team choices based on team needs and the best players available and you’ll vote on the picks for each team. On with the countdown…

1. Houston Texans (2-14)

Things went upside down for the Texans in 2013.  They won their division in 2012 and started 2013 2-0, but then proceeded to lose 14 straight to close out their season.  Matt Schaub tossed pick-6’s in four straight games, an NFL record.  That got him shipped off to the Raiders this offseason and got Gary Kubiak a pink slip.  Former Penn State coach Bill O’Brien is in charge and will be looking to bring the Texans back to playoff form.
