    Texas Homer’s Texas 2011 potential draft prospects

    *(Disclaimer) Just my opinion guys…

    CB Aaron Williams (Jr.) Williams is very physical, athletic and has plus size (6'1 195) for a CB. Williams is a good tackler, has good speed, and pretty much every tool that you look for in a high CB draft pick. It looked like teams avoided throwing to Williams side at times last season and he still got 3 int's. last season.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: Top 15 pick.

    DE Sam Acho (Sr.) (6’3 260) Ach has a motor that doesn’t quit and had 10 sacks last season. Plus athleticism.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: Late 1st round


    CB Curtis Brown (Sr.) Brown is an athletic Freak. I think Curtis Brown is a very talented coverage CB . Brown also has good size (6'0 184) for a CB. He can hit pretty good too. He is a lean 184, but he isn’t afraid to hit and he is cat quick(plus plus speed (imo). I think Curtis is pretty underrated. I think that Curtis is also going to return punts for Texas this season.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: Late 1st-Mid 2nd Round


    CB Chykie Brown (Sr.) Brown is listed at (6'0 194), great size for a CB and has long arms. Chykie is kind of built in the “Antonio Cromartie” mold. Chykie needs to work on being more consistent and being more physical, but he has the measureables and potential that some NFL people drool over.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: 2nd-to late 3rd round

    DT Kheeston Randall (Jr.) 6’5 295. Kheeston is a big dude that can really move. Legit size and plus athleticism.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: I doubt Kheeston comes out after this season, but if Kheeston has a really good season and because of his size, then I could see anywhere from the 2nd -5th.

    My guess on Kheeston if he comes out: 3rd Round

    MLB Emmanuel Acho (Jr.) (6’2 240) Acho is moving over to MLB this season, but he could play any 3 LB spots in my opinion. Acho has plus athleticism and can run sideline to sideline. Acho has a really good motor and is relentless in pursuit.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: Just like Randall, I doubt Acho leaves early, but if he does, then I’ll guess 3rd-4th round.

    WR Malcolm Williams-6'3 225. TO size and potential. Williams needs to put it all together and have big season. Williams is capable of it. We will see…

    Preseason Draft stock guess: ??? I have no idea. Williams is extremely talented. I’m waiting to see him put it all together. I doubt he comes out anyway unless he has a HUGE year.

    LT Kyle Hix (Sr.) Hix is a MOUNTAIN at 6'7.5" 325 lbs. Hix has started 28 games at RT so far and is sliding over to LT for next season. Hix is a pretty good run blocker and I'm excited to see how does at LT(I think Hix can play LT at a high level.). This may not be the best comparison, but Eric Winston comes to mind. Hix does need to work on being more consistent and getting stronger in my opinion, but I like his potential.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: 3rd or 4th round, but I could see him moving up into the lower 2nd round if he has a really strong season.

    OLB Keenan Robinson (Jr.) Robinson is listed at 6'3 239 lbs. Big, strong, fast and can hit like a truck. Keenan was 3rd on Texas team last season on tackles with (74). I've also heard that Robinson looks noticeably bigger/stronger in the summer workouts. I think Robinson steps up in a big way at Texas this season and plays at an All-American level.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: If Robinson comes out after Jr. season, right now I'd guess 3rd or 4th round. If Robinson stays for his Sr. season then I could see him as a 1st-early 2nd round pick.

    S Blake Gideon (Jr.) I'm higher on Gideon's upside than some Texas fans. Gideon is listed at 6'1 and 205. I also think Gideon is faster and more athletic than he is given credit for. I think Gideon is healthy and good to go for next season. Gideon had (62) tackles and (6) ints. last season for Texas. Gideon has also started 27 games at Texas. I also think Gideon is one of the leaders on Texas defense.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: I think Gideon needs to get stronger and improve on tackling, but I'll guess 3rd- 4th round for Gideon if he stays through his Sr. season. I don’t think Gideon will leave Texas early, but you never know...

    OG Michael Huey (Sr.) Big kid that has potential. He has legit size (6’5 310). I think he needs to be more consistent and show some grit/”Mean”. Huey does have potential though

    Preseason Draft stock guess: 4th round

    DE Eddie Jones (Sr.) (6’3 260) Jones has fought through injuries that could raise some “Flags”, but Jones will knock you out. POWERFUL DE, with emphasis on power. Jones is listed as a starter for Texas at DE/”Buck” position and Jones had 5 sack last season.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: 5th round

    WR John Chiles (Sr.) Chiles has slimmed down to 210, and is listed at 6’2. Chiles is really athletic and is in year #2 in the QB-to-WR switch. Watch out for Chiles because he has some flash in him.

    Preseason Draft stock guess: ???-Just like Malcolm William, I need to see Chiles on the field this season before I can form an opinion on this, but I mentioned him on this because of his potential.

    I've been waiting for 2-3 years for M. Williams to break out at WR. If there's anything to like beyond the obvious it's that he is a willing blocker. It gives him a chance to be the Luis Murphy of this draft...Murphy is a really solid looking player for the Raiders.

      From SportsDayDFW,

      Talking to an NFL scout on Saturday night and the early thought on the 2011 NFL draft is that UT has the two best state draft picks in cornerbacks Curtis Brown and Chykie Brown.

      "They (the DBs) may not be first rounders, but if they have a good season one or both could end up going in the first round."

        I'm not a scout, but I like CB Curtis Brown as a late 1st rounder.

        I also thought that Jr. Texas OLB Keenan Robinson played well in his 1st game vs. Rice picking off a pass and scooping up a fumble and taking it in for a TD.

        I also think that DT Kheeston Randall played well in game 1.

          Hey Homer nice write up. Just curious, if you could only have one who would you take, Orakpo or Acho?

            I like both, but I'd take Orakpo.

              I thought S Blake Gideon had a pretty solid/good game (8 tackles) last weekend.

              Hix played well at LT.

              DE/DT Sam Acho (1 sack and 3 TFL) and LB E. Acho (6 tackles and 1 TFL) both played well.

              (Sr.) DE Eddie Jones has really been making his presence felt at DE in the 1st couple of games(4 TFL and 2 sacks so far on the season).

              Here is a gif. of a Blake Gideon tackle against Wyoming that I found on "Shaggybevo.com".

                Great post homer ! WR M. Williams is so frustrating to watch the kid has so much talent but it seems like he has lapses in his concentration with the drops. Hopefully a thing of the past this season.

                  After Texas Tech game in my opinion.....

                  CB Curtis Brown Stock-^UP

                  I thought Brown played well and had a big int. where it looked like he jumped the route.

                  S Blake Gideon Stock-^UP

                  I thought Gideon played pretty well too. I think Gideon is showing much more physicality this season and has been tackling much better. Gideon also tied for the team lead in tackles (5) against Tech and also had a int. in the game.

                  Sr. DE Eddie Jones Stock-^UP

                  Jones was credited with 2 more sacks against Tech, giving Jones 4 sacks on the season.

                  DT Kheeston Randall Stock-^UP

                  Randall played well vs. Tech. Randall had a sack and played strong. Legit size and play.

                  True Freshman DE Jackson Jeffcoat REALLY made his presence felt and played really well. Jeffcoat went into BEAST MODE. I'm excited.

                    What about WR Malcolm Williams? His stocks gotta b down after that costly drop that lead to the CB intercepting the ball.

                      Gilbert should challenge the junior rule and declare at the end of this season. The Raiders need another QB that has a strong arm and no sense of control or the ability to read defenses.

                        I wouldn't mind getting Aaron Williams to play opposite of Asante Samuel, with his size.

                            I thought that Williams played well against Tech too. Williams tipped the ball that Gideon intercepted. Williams had a TFL and also had a pretty strong "Suplex slam" style tackle that stopped Tech short of an 1st down.

                              An up & coming Longhorn, I think will be the real deal is going to be Mike Davis, he has talent.
