Format-wise for the selections do we wanna try something like this?


1. - Houston Texans


Mario Williams, DE, North Carolina St. - Jr. - 6'7 295lbs
2005 stats: 24 tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks, 1 safety, 1 blocked kick



Explanation: This selection basically came down to 4 players (Mario Williams, Reggie Bush, Vince Young or D'Brickashaw Ferguson) or a trade down. There was not believed to be value in any trade down scenario presented. Vince Young was not chosen as we just gave David Carr a roster bonus and extended his contract 3 more years. I believe if Carr does not work out, we can trade for a guy like Matt Schaub who is stuck behind Vick. Ferguson was not rated as high as the other two players, plus we can probably get a guy in a few years like Duane Brown at the end of the 1st rd that could end up being better. Bush was passed up because he will not be a feature back that will be able to run between the tackles in the NFL and does not warrant the #1 overall pick. In another couple years, a guy I really like will be coming out: Steve Slaton. His size may drop him into a later round but make no mistake about it, this guy will come in as a rookie and play like a seasoned vet, we'll be talking about the possibility of him making the pro bowl too. This leaves us with Mario Williams. Many don't think he's the #1 prospect but he is, hands down. Mario has the potential to be the best DE in the entire league in only a couple years. He'll be the foundation and building block of our Defense for years. He will be a perennial pro bowler and we'll get to laugh at the rest of the league saying "we were right"... we'll just have to take their ignorant uneducated rants in the meantime.


edit: my explanation my seem outlandish right now but they're just some prospects I think the Texans should look at in the future.
