Default Hulsey on Texans draft

April 13, 2006
Charley's Farewell Draft?
by Bob Hulsey

Depending on what rumors you believe, this could be General Manager Charley Casserly's final draft with the Houston Texans. It could be that he'll jump to a position within the league offices or he might be let go as the turnover from the expansion era continues.

great read, although seeing some of it in print is very disheartening. like these bits...

Every season, the Texans have made one trade which netted a future year's pick ('02 with Atlanta, '03 with Oakland, '04 with Dallas using Drew Henson and '05 with New Orleans). So far, they've netted us Ragone, Hollings and Morency. Casserly traded down once and got Bennie Joppru and Seth Wand. He traded up once to get Jason Babin and he traded out once to get Philip Buchanon. He also made one second-day trade in '04 that netted a pocketful of 6ths and 7ths.
wand & babin have potential now with the new staff, but that drafting is a big reason why we're 2-14

In fact, none of the major Texas colleges get much love from the Texans. To date, they have used college draft selections on one Longhorn (Thomas), one Aggie (LS Chance Pearce) and one Red Raider (QB B.J. Symons), all seventh-rounders. No Bears, no Cougars, no Owls, no Horned Frogs, not even a Lumberjack or a Javelina. They've drafted more players from Louisiana and Florida schools than they have Texas schools.
disappointing, but unavoidable. not many solid prospects are coming out outside of austin, although a few would be upgrades over current picks... derrick johnson (UT), dylan gandy (Tech), nathan vashar (UT), bo & matt schobel (TCU), roy williams (UT), marcus tubbs (UT), ty warren (A&M), sammy davis (A&M), bethel johnson (A&M), corey redding (UT), chris simms (UT), quentin jammer (UT), seth mckinney (A&M). that's just the first four rounds, in FOUR YEARS, and leaving out a couple guys who i dont think have played a single down. the talent pool just isnt what it should be.

Hey, you forgot Stanford Routt (Houston)......he was a second Rd selection by OAK!

I think Rice had a DS/LS drafted in the 6th round!
