Drafting NFL starters is what I consider "successful".. of the 8 second round picks that the Texans have selected, 5 start/have started and the only reason why it isn't 6 is because Tate plays behind Arian Foster (so you don't think he's a good player?) and the reason why more of these players weren't offered a extension had more to do with Houston's cap situation than anything else.
As far as Conner Barwin's one good year.
J.J. Watt.. 28 tackles and 3.5 sacks
Conner Barwin.. 25 tackles and 3 sacks (already matched last year's total)
Did he only have one good year or did he just have a off year? Because he's on pace to have around double digit sacks.
Sorry, but I'm not buying the argument that the Texans don't hit on their second round picks.
