How many of you...
 
Didn't know who the hell a Jason Babin was when we made that trade and took him @ 27 last year? Just thought I'd ask,cuz I know I didn't.



Glad I know him now! :heh:

Dime 01-31-2005 02:13 PM

I had no clue

Blake 01-31-2005 02:16 PM

I knew very little about him. I was more focused on other players.

El Tejano 01-31-2005 02:19 PM

I didn't know he existed.

texasguy346 01-31-2005 02:47 PM

I didn't really know much about him other than the fact he was mentioned in passing in the ESPN chatter about the draft.

Honoring Earl 34 01-31-2005 03:09 PM

:howdy: The Sunday before the draft I think John McClain wrote about Babins stock rising after he ran 4.6 at the combine. He was coming out of nowhere to create a buzz.

I was pretty much clueless about him. Just goes to show how much more prospect study the scouts/casserly does compared to our Kiper/draft "expert" regurgitation.

texansfan88 01-31-2005 03:26 PM

I had him going 32nd overall to the Patriots the whole way. But of course, I had to know who he was cuz of my occupation

Honoring Earl 34 01-31-2005 03:41 PM

:howdy: Occupation are you a tattoo artist ?

TexansCanes 01-31-2005 03:44 PM

i only about him from ncaa football 2004, the was a beast. i started to read up about him more after mal talked about him on a draft preview show and i saw a profile of him in my draft magazine.

AlexVanderpool 01-31-2005 03:59 PM

I had him pegged as a 2nd - 3rd round draft pick with the likes of travis laboy, Bo Schobel, and Isaac Hilton, amongst other tweener DE switched to 3-4 OLBs. Personally, i liked Hilton pre-draft, the jurys still out on him.

I still feel that though babin should be a solid linebacker for most of his career, he does not posess the mind blowing talent to become the game-changing player needed to justify trading the majority of our draft for. Especially when we still lack the depth (OL/DL) that those additional picks might have filled.

Panther5407 01-31-2005 04:11 PM

I didn't even know of a Western Michagan. Glad the Texans did though.

When a team trades for the 27th overall draft pick do they really expect "mind blowing talent", or do they expect a legitamate starter for one of the 22 starting positions? Wouldn't you trade up into the top 10 or so if you wanted a "mind blowingly" talented football player?

We had 6 rookies make the squad. How did we trade away the majority of our draft? Most of you guys have an impossible standard for Babin, and this pick. He had a year that was on par with other playoff quality 3-4 LOLB's, and we ended up with three starters with 6 overall drafted players making the team from the same draft. We didn't give up a single future pick either.

Fiddy 01-31-2005 05:10 PM

I knew he existed because the day before the draft I saw some video on him from ESPN Motion Draft Profiles...


When we traded up I thought we were going after Karlos Dansby...

D-ReK 01-31-2005 06:23 PM

About 2 or 3 days before the draft, Kiper was on Sportscenter discussing players whose stock was rising and, sure enough, Babin was one of them...

STEEL BLUE TEXANS 01-31-2005 06:47 PM

I knew a little about him. By draft time, most mocks had him going to either the Rams or Titans in the first round.

I do interviews and scout the draft basically 363 days a year...so I know my stuff a "Little" bit

tiger06 01-31-2005 07:23 PM

I knew he was a DE for W. Michigan and knew he was pretty good. (I play NCAA Football on Xbox) :heh:

Honoring Earl 34 01-31-2005 07:25 PM
