I feel bad for CC, but this is great news for the team. Safety is the one position the franchise has neglected since its inception. Remember sorry ass Matt Stevens? Kubes and Smith will be forced into drafting a safety with a high draft pick this year. Good news for the future of the Texans, because the defense has always lacked a ballhawk a safety. Taylor Mays or William Moore anyone? Sounds damn good to me right now.

It may just be more of the same .... low draft picks on a position they dont place a high priority on .... then again maybe they get lucky eventually on one of those low picks and find a gem.

There is nothing unusual about safeties being lower round draft picks. Most teams have at least one who is a 4th or later if not both of them. The key is finding the types who fit whatever you are trying to do as a defense. Now, there is the issue of richard Smith trying to explain exactly what is trying to do.

I know Saftey's tend to be drafted in the mid - late rounds in general ..... just seems that they continue to look in the late rounds.


CC Brown 6th

Dominique Barber 6th


Glenn Earl (4th) doesnt really fall into that category .... But he should have considering his injuries at the time.


The position has been a total liability since day one .... matt stevens.

Coincidentally those are the only three players drafted at Safety by the Texans ... Unless you want to count Jammal Lord who was a QB in college.
(Brandon Harrison is listed as DB 5th round)

I don't think our safety issues are a matter of where we draft them but rather a matter of the way that Richard Smith wants them to work. I think the whole scheme of having two safeties similar abilities that are both smallish for SS and slowish for FS so that they can play sides of the field regardless of offensive formation is questionable. Unless you've got two really big, fast, brutal guys back there.

We have the safeties we have now because they are what Richard Smith wanted. Interchangeable.

I just think that's a bad idea.

I'm pretty sure Harrison was projected and recognized as a safety coming out of the draft. Besides, isn't a safety just another type of defensive back? I thought both cornerbacks and safeties fell into the category of "defensive back". Correct me if I'm wrong, of course.

Exactly how I feel about it. Another example of our wonderful DC outsmarting himself.
