The Rang Review
by Warren DeLuca

Did the Texans make the right moves on draft day, and have they added enough talent to make the jump from also-ran to a team to be reckoned with? Only time will tell, but the speculation is well underway among the Houston faithful. Not wanting to be left out, we asked Rob “Boomer” Rang of NFLDraftScout.com for his thoughts on the Texans’ fourth draft and other recent moves as they gear up for what they hope will be their first run at the playoffs.

It was a good interview and article. Rang is a little confused though calling a guy almost 10 lbs lighter (Morency--Morency is either the same height or one inch taller depending on where you look) slightly bigger than DD.

His assesment sounds reasonable.

Dig this quote...
Rang: Trading away from Derrick Johnson wasn't a big surprise to us, as we had heard the Texans had several players higher on their board than the former Longhorn. Adding collegiate defensive tackle Travis Johnson over the seemingly classic 3-4 defensive end Marcus Spears, however, is a decision that could define the Texans 2005 draft. No one is denying Johnson's talent. He proved to be the nation's most unstoppable defensive tackle last season and has the athleticism and size to make the transition to the 3-4 defensive end or remain inside at nose tackle. Most teams had Spears ranked higher than Johnson. That said, Charley Casserly is among the top talent scouts in this business. Most teams had DeAngelo Hall ranked higher than Dunta Robinson, too.

Too bad these "FIRE C.C." people don't see it that way. Be sure to check out what I dug up on my post "Old News Never Dies" for all you Dallas haters.

I think those are people that dont really know football. I liked DJ and thought he would have an excellent career with us, but I was not mad at the pick of TJ who is very good and addresses a division of our defense that we have not pursued in FA. The article was ok, but he did not talk about how we did not address certain areas that we needed to or the fact that the pick up of Morency in the third round might have been to high. Hopefully he is right about the 9-7 mark because I see us with another 7-9 season. Just dont thing enough got done for the now, but for the future we are looking good as soon as Gary Walker is gone.

If you don't recall, he said the Texans already addressed the LB issues. Drafting DJ would have been like us drafting another WR when we already have like 100 or so already.
