Another thing is need. Outsiders may have looked at the 2008-2009 Texans and listed center as a need. There were many here who thought center was a big need.
The Texans probably never saw the need at center to the same magnitude as the media. So while the media base their "mock drafts" on perceived need, trying to match the best players with teams most drastic need, it skews the whole "idea" of where a player "should" be drafted.
