Funny thing is, if you ever frequent other message boards.. every NFL fan around the league (outside of the Bengals) accuse their team of this. It's a joke. All teams take consideration into a player's past discretions and then also have to make the decision to pass or draft accordingly.

Travis Johnson... not a choir boy, plenty of warnings about attitude problems when he was coming out

Jerome Mathis... Had character issues coming out

Amobi Okoye admitted to smoking pot

Mario Williams was said to be a lazy player who takes plays off.

3 of those 4 players all had major question marks yet were first round picks. Holy hell, even if Sam Montgomery turns out to be a total bust/turd I won't care, because once and for all we'll be able to put this whole "Texans only draft high character choir boys" crap to bed. Especially when other teams are doing the same exact thing.
Well said. This reminds me of the "Bob McNair won't spend money on the team" argument. It's simply not true. McNair is not, and never has been, a cheap owner. Yes, we can question his personnel decisions. He's made quite a few suspect ones. But, when it comes to doling out the money, McNair is far from cheap.
