ESPN’s Kiper, McShay project Rounds 1-3

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 6, 2011 – 3:03 pm

ESPN draftniks Mel Kiper and Todd McShay came out with new three-round mock drafts today. Here’s who they had the Texans taking with each of their first three picks:

Kiper (link)
1 (11): North Carolina LB Robert Quinn
2 (42): Texas CB Curtis Brown
3 (73): North Carolina CB Kendric Burney

McShay (link)
1 (11): Temple DE Muhammad Wilkerson
2 (42): Georgia OLB Justin Houston
3 (73): Temple S Jaiquawn Jarrett

Quinn has been a popular pick for the Texans in mock drafts over the last few weeks. McShay’s is the first mock I’ve seen that has the Texans picking Wilkerson. He reasons that with Quinn and Von Miller off the board in his mock, Wilkerson “has more upside than any other 3-4 end in this draft,” including Cal’s Cameron Jordan and Wisconsin’s J.J. Watt.

Incidentally, Kiper (UNC) and McShay (Temple) both had the Texans taking players from the same school in Rounds 1 and 3. The last time the Texans drafted multiple players from one school was in 2008, when they took Virginia Tech’s Duane Brown in the first round and Xavier Adibi in the fourth round.
