After a highly successful “Fan’s Mock” here at B/R in 2010, we’re returning for our second go-round to once again give our fans a chance to vote for who they think their team should select in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft!
The Texans defense let them down hugely in 2010, part of which was due to the loss of Dunta Robinson.
The Texans probably won’t find a replacement for him in this scenario, with Patrick Peterson and Prince Amukamara already having new homes, but they could still pick up some serious help with one of the players who’s still available.
Here are the selections so far:
1. Carolina Panthers select CB Patrick Peterson
2. Denver Broncos Select DT Marcell Dareus
3. Buffalo Bills Select OLB Von Miller
4. Cincinnati Bengals select DE Da’Quan Bowers
5. Arizona Cardinals select QB Blaine Gabbert
6. Cleveland Browns select WR AJ Green
7. San Francisco 49ers select CB Prince Amukamara
8. Tennessee Titans select DT Nick Fairley
9. Dallas Cowboys select OT Tyron Smith
10. Washington Redskins select DE Robert Quinn
There’s still plenty of defensive talent left with players like Cameron Jordan, JJ Watt and Aldon Smith on the board and the Texans might even have to think twice about passing up a guy like Julio Jones who is now only three spots away from the furthest he could fall in this draft.
So who will they pick?
Remember to cast you votes below!! Voting will close in 24 hours!
The Rules: Each day for the next 32 days, we’ll post a continuation of this article at 6 p.m. Eastern time, where the fans can comment, discuss and decide who their team will pick.
At 5 p.m. Eastern the following day, we’ll look at the best comments and opinions and announce the selection your team has made, along with the next team who will pick at 6 p.m. A list of previous selections will be included and fans will not be allowed to vote for players who are already off the board.
Note: You do not have to use the player’s full name in voting for your vote to count. If there is a tie at the 5 p.m. cut-off, whichever player is ranked as the higher pick on CBS sports' "overall player ranking" will be the selection.
Example: If the Bills have six votes for Von Miller and six votes for Cam Newton, then Miller, who is ranked No. 2 overall, would be the selection over Newton, who is ranked No. 11.
