I DON'T get making this into a "every pick of a player I had heard of is good and every pick of a player I hadn't heard of was bad". And I don't get making this into "a Wade knows how to make picks but they let some idiot named Smithiak into the room to choose the WRs" which is really what I was responding to.

What I stated was the truth. Who made the pick? A group of professionals that put a lot of time and consideration into it and who had access to a lot more information than the people who made the lists that Wolf6151 is basing his opinion on did. Guys who studied a lot more film, different film, interviews, and a lot of other things.
Were they the right picks? Maybe. Maybe not. But we aren't going to know until later. Most WR picks do not pan out. And in the past, most of the guys that we have our collective TT sights set on (based on those same lists), don't turn out. There were a lot of RBs we wanted in the draft a few years ago before we ended up with Arian Foster and almost all of those guys have not panned out.

Personally, I still don't see the KJ pick as that bad of a pick. I don't think it would have mattered which CB we would have picked at that point, we would have put him in a horrible situation and he would have sucked.
What surprises me is you feel that you had to state the obvious?

I'll speak only for myself but the players I doubted I had heard of. I can make good defenses of why I did not like the and why I liked others. Still does not make much difference as Texans did pick who they wanted. Still it is part of the entertainment to discuss & disagree.
