3 35 San Diego - San Diego runs a new 34 D, also
4 36 Kansas City - Brought Babin in for a visit, traded down after he went off the board
6 38 Pittsburgh - Runs a 34 defense
7 39 Jacksonville - Have a poor pash rush, not happy with their DE's
That's 5 teams that could have taken Babin and no one would have batted an eye. Not to mention teams that were behind the Texans at 40. Here's the kicker - Casserly said on the radio during draft day that there were 2 other teams nosing around for a spot to take Babin in the 1st. Unless you want to call Charlie a bald faced liar or you think he was duped, that really settles the matter. Babin wasn't going to be available when the Texans selected at #40.
Maybe Casserly does have a little "sacred cow" aura here. But I feel he's earned that due to the positive direction this franchise is heading. Still, if you have a difference of opinion with what the Texans are doing, make your case. But don't be surprised when someone challenges your opinion and you have to defend it.
