But not everyone within the organization agrees on Williams. He didn't play hard at the beginning of last season, nor was he consistently productive. Casserly and Kubiak study all his games; they don't believe any of these negatives is persuasive enough. They also have questions about Bush. If he is this good, why did he play just part-time at USC? And why, near the end of the national championship game, did USC turn to LenDale White more than Bush? Do you pay No. 1 money to a guy who will not be a full-time back? They never answer these questions to their satisfaction.
May be not but I guessed this one correct. Still say leaving the owner of a NFL club dangling for two days wouldn't help any draft choice under any circumstances. Acroding to this, the desidsion was made way befor the scandals broke.

But the closer the Texans got to the draft, the more reports they heard about Bush and the controversy he would be in the middle of involving NCAA violations. First, it was Casserly who fell in love with Williams and recommended not drafting Bush. Then McNair and Kubiak came on board.
