And with that, the doubters crawled away.

I say enough about deciding what Casserly did and did not do. Let's look instead at what the Texans (be it Casserly, Smith or Kubes) did with their last two drafts:

2006:
1: Mario--'nuff said.
2: Demeco--An even better pick than Mario
3: Spencer--had a good start to solving LT before the freak injury
3: Winston--looks like a fixture at RT
4: Daniels--fumbling aside, a great value pick
Then Lundy (6) and Anderson (7)--some contributions there, too.

2007:
1: Okoye--hit the wall hard, but what upside
3: Jones--even though he's struggled, we all saw what he's capable of
4: Bennett--looks like we might just have a CB here
Too soon to tell on the others.

Of our last 8 picks in the first four rounds, we've got 5 solid-to-great starters, two with real potential and one who looked lke the answer at LT before his injury. That's a whale of a job drafting.
