I thought we would be a little lower overall

19. Houston Texans

Current roster: 18 of 40 (11 starters). Two of Houston's most promising picks cornerback Dunta Robinson (2004/first) and left tackle Charles Spencer (2006/third) are trying to come back from serious leg injuries.

Best pick: When healthy, Andre Johnson (2003/first) is one of the NFL's best wide receivers.

Biggest mistake: Strong safety Glenn Earl is the only player remaining on the roster of the nine drafted between rounds two and five from 2003 to 2005.

Front office: Charley Casserly couldn't sculpt this expansion franchise into a winner before his 2006 departure as general manager. But Casserly left a nice parting gift, as Houston's decision to select defensive end Mario Williams with the top overall pick in 2006 began paying off last season.

Comment: Playing in one of the NFL's toughest divisions, the impact of this year's draft class could determine whether the 2008 Texans secure the franchise's first playoff berth.
