Holy crap! You're right.

Here you go: Pick #21 in the 5th round, #151 overall, Texans (From Colts through Redskins) Yates, Taylor

EDIT: Even more mind-boggling is that Yates was our second pick in the 5th round......after Shiloh Keo....

Why are all of theses articles coming out about this team or that team wanting to draft Yates? Who cares and what does it matter who says what now?

If those teams were interested in Yates at all he wouldn't have been available in the 5th round. They obviously didn't want him that much. Hell, we didn't even want him that much to have drafted him that late.

Rick Smith said they were really surprised he fell to the fifth round. They expected him to go in the 3rd at the latest.

The Texans had too many holes to fill to take a QB. But it was too good of a pick to pass up in the 5th.

It's not like he fell off the board completely, like Foster. ALL teams screwed the pooch on him, with the minor exception of the Texans for picking up a FA based on some skill sets they liked in him.

As far as articles, we are fans! This is what we do! If you don't like it, don't click the thread.

Have you seen articles with other teams besides Indy? I only saw the one about Polian.

I think Dalt will end up good, but not TJ Yates good, probably something to do with gingers and no souls and whatnot.

#Yatesing, if your QB isn't doing that - he's not winning.

That's all I gotta say

Of course people will say that after the fact. Does anyone have a quote claiming this before the Jacksonville game? If not, it's probably BS. Polian is just posturing to save face for having the third winless team in NFL history.

But even they passed on Yates to take Shiloh Keo. Belichick gets a ton of credit for drafting Tom Brady. But even Belichick took a bunch of crap players in previous rounds. Sometimes, you have to give credit to the coaches developing the player, and the player himself.

Credit goes to the coaching staff and management. Even if he's awful for the rest of his career, he's already proven worthy of being a 5th round pick.

Pollian is such a colossal joke. He has made one bad personel decision after another. He got lucky with Peyton and he covered piss poor talent for years.
