This is kind of based on my other thread, but if you could go back with the 155 players available to us in the expansion draft who would you take? Heres a list.

2002 expansion draft
List of players drafted and those who were exposed to the draft
Updated Feb. 18, 2002
The following list of players was available to the Houston Texans in the expansion draft, which was held Monday, Feb. 18. Each NFL team had to expose five players. Each club was able to put forward only one player who was placed on injured reserve after the start of the 2001 regular season and one player who has 10 or more years of free-agency experience. Neither punters nor kickers were permitted to be part of the list.
The Texans were mandated to select between 30 and 42 players in the expansion draft, or a lesser number of players with salaries totaling 38 percent of the salary cap. As it turned out, they selected 19 players.

The Jets and the Jaguars lost the most players in the draft, each giving up three. The Ravens lost two players.

An existing club was able to recall one player from its list after one of its players was selected. After a second player was selected from a club, that club could pull back both of its remaining players. In practice, only eight players were recalled.

A total of 155 veterans were available for selection by the Texans.
