Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

no one under-estimated anything. Duane Brown wasn't the best player on the board IMO. We could have drafted Cason, Tyrell Johnson or Kenny Phillips.

Let's just call this "Sticker shock" at this point. Who in their right mind had us taking Duane Brown in round one?! Completely out of left field.

Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

It's a lot more comfy on the bandwagon now with all of you apparently jumping off.

Because all of you draft experts already know Phillips, Mendenhall, Cason, and whoever else you wanted already know that Duane Brown isn't going to be as good as them. You are all ready to put Rick Smith, Alex Gibbs, and Kubiak's head on a pike because you hate this pick. You guys are lame.

Welcome to the Texans Duane Brown!

No because, no one was getting that kind of value ahead of us. The Ravens only got two 3rds and a 4th to trade down to 26. No way were we getting a second.

Thats the kind of junk that happens when you have an Oline coach with a history of taking less known players and making them into pro bowlers.

Here's to a great career for Duane, welcome to the Texans. May he shore up the position which has been a thorn in our sides since day 1.

No. A decent second would have been too much.

We should have gotten a 3rd and maybe a high 5th or a low 4th. The 6th was a little lower than I would have liked.

BUT...

I'm going with the pick. I believe in Smithiak.
