Come on Badboy, I think the Texans have gotten better each year since 2007, which was one of our worst drafts ever.
2007 netted us absolutely nothing
2008 Got us Duane Brown and Steve Slaton was good for a year
2009, this is where it gets fun. Heard of any of these guys?? Cushing, Barwin, Caldwell, Casey, McCain or Nolan?
2010, obviously, the one you alluded to. Was KJax, Big Ben Tate Earl Mitchell and D Sharpton. Shelley Smith is notable, if he can get on the field. I'm liking 2009 better at this point.
2011, I think is safe to say was a pretty dang good draft too. WATT?!?! ring a bell? Reed and Yates also contributed, We still don't know what we have with Harris and Carmichael and Keo. Though it's a little early.
So lets see, 2006 was a good draft, 2007 was horrible, 2008 got us a franchise LT, and a year of solid production from Slaton. 2009, Great draft! And to think Frank Bush had something to do with those defensive aquisitions. 2010, I don't know, let's see how KJax does this year, but it was a good draft. Ben Tate and Earl Mitchell are solid contributors as well as Daryl Sharpton when he's on the field. The 2011 draft, even if only Watt and Reed continue their great and good play, respectively, then it is still a really good draft. Now, if Yates and any of the secondary picks pan out...well, there's another great draft.
Can't wait til Thursday!!!
