I get your point, Texian.
But that was why I brought up the other two kickers drafted in the sixth round; you even added the UDFA from UT (a Houston native no less.)
These guys performed at basically the same pay as Bullock, with less in signing bonus. Teams don't need to go after veterans.
On the one hand, you have to balance between paying a veteran and the possibility of a young talent.
It seems to me that you pick and choose.
If the Texans hit on all the picks, none of us would complain, since young talents are always cheaper than the vets.
