Packers,49ers (Hiring Harbaugh) Giants, Lions (Mayhew) Ravens, Pats,Bengals off the top of my head.
please....

first of you name only 7 teams so the texans even in your negative eyes are in the top 25%. secondly id bet at least half those teams dont meet the 75/80% limit you say. if you actually look at the drafts, the texans have been one of, if not the, best drafting teams since 06. thats the reason many say they have prob got the most talented overall roster and why we didnt fall apart despite all the injuries last yr

off the top of my head i can name the following busts from each of the team listed:

Packers: hawk, harrell, plus sherrod pick from last yr isnt looking too promising. to overcome that and reach your target theyd need to have 6-8 other hit picks

pats: ben watson, maroney, mccourty, merriweather

ravens: boller, mark clayton
