Default Texans Will Not Draft Longhorns

Vince Young will not be coming to the texans IMO, because from some reason it appears to me someone does not want any Longhorns on this team. I don't know if it's casserly, the owner, or the past coaches, but each year there are quality players from the university of texas and they end up on other teams rosters. The most glaring was Derrick Johnson last year. This year there will be a qb, db, d lineman, olineman, and a tight end who catches everything coming into this draft. The Texans could use any of them, but, i'm prepared to see all of these players go to another nfl team. It just seems odd to me that the worst team in the nfl that has never had a winning season would not draft any players from one of the best teams in college football over the last five years other than Sloan Thomas in the 7th round or have any players from this university on the roster period either through the draft or free agency.

Won't draft Longhorns? That's a bit of a conspiracy theory, isn't it?

I too questioned the passover of Derrick Johnson last year, and I too would have liked to see him wearing Texans blue this season.

But a guy can be stupid for a lot of reasons. He doesn't have to entertain a blind prejudice in the process.

Outside of DJ and Benson, there really has not been a guy that I wanted for the Texans and I did not feel that they were a fit. This year there are three that are at need positions - Jon Scott, Rod Wright and Michael Huff.

The Texans have drafted exactly one Longhorn (Sloan Thomas), Aggie (Chance Pearce) and Red Raider (B.J. Symons).

No one from Baylor, Houston, Rice, SMU, TCU or any other Texas school.

They have never drafted a player from:

USC (yet)
Penn State
West Virginia
Alabama
Georgia
Oregon
UCLA
Auburn
Wisconsin
Boston College
Clemson
Oklahoma
Cal

All of these teams finished in the top 25 this year. So what's your point?

What's so funny is the Texans are not going to draft VY or RB! LOL

They are going to re-sign D Carr, which we all know.

And trade down. Reggie or Vince won't be here..LOL


If they we're smart, they would work on drafting both. That should be the focus after the HC is hired.. Why pick just one when you have the cards to pick both!!!

What about David Thomas. The guy has great hands at TE.

Why stop there? They should work on drafting Bush, Young, D'Brickashaw Ferguson and AJ Hawk....that would be totally awesome!

Oh, yeah, I know why. Because that would be impossible.

UT also has a very good TE in Thomas and also had one last year in Bo Scaife who was drafted by the Titans and played all year for them

I stand corrected. DT would be a 3-4 round candidate for a need position, in my opinion.

Maybe not drafted, but we do have players from a good number of these teams on our roster. My point is i do not think the texans will draft a player from ut for one reason or another. That's my point. So don't get your hopes up that any of these players will be coming here.

The Texans have 4 players currently on the roster who attended the schools who won the past 9 National Championships. So there alot of really good colleges the Texans are not getting players from, not just Texas.

No just draft, i'm talking also about free agency, etc. We have never had one longhorn on our roster. Don't expect them to draft everyone. They really don't need any more time than this year and i'm not referring to vy. There are numerous other players that the texans can use. If they are not available, then, i can live with that, but if we pass them up again(derrick johnston), then i will not be happy.
