Mario Williams had 10.5 of his 13 sacks in 3 games last year. I would hardly call that consistent or dominant. He wasn't even the ACC Def Player of the Year. Can he end up being great? Sure, anything is possible and he is only 21. He has great upside. But is he worth the #1 pick? Not at all.

These comparisions to Peppers are premature. When you watched Peppers at UNC, he just jumped off the screen. You just knew that he was going to be great. I don't get that feeling with Williams.

As my monikor suggests, I'm an Old Oiler Fan but have been hoping and rooting for the Texans to get it together and field a competitive and fun team to watch. I really can't believe that they are going to pass up on 2 of the most amazing and accomplished college football athletes of the past 20 years for a workout warrior project! Amazing!

Screw it! Go Titans!

Default Mario Williams?

Well, first of all I hope this is just a rumor. Why??? Because there are still hours before the draft and we are already playing our hand? I admit I want Bush more than Williams, but we definitely need a pass rusher also. Our pass rush is pathetic. I have six PSL's and have been trying to sell two and I now have no idea how this will now affect that. Having said that........I have no problem with the choosing of Mario Williams, but I have to ask, did we try to trade down as Mario most likely would have been there at the #4 spot if that is truly what we wanted? I have to really question who is making the ultimate decision....Kubiak, McNair or Casserly? Or is it a combination of all three? (Soon we will probably know) I cannot believe that after the Texans were saying Bush, Bush, then Bush or Mario and now saying Mario on the eve before the draft as we prematurely make an announcement when other offers could be out there for the pick. This makes me really question our draft day logic. Regardless I will still be a diehard Texan fan. If this is true I hope Mario puts a picture of Vince on his locker because he will be chasing him twice a year! :brickwall

I - did - not - see - that - coming.

Oh well, at least we don't need to worry about defense as much. I wonder if this changes pick #33.

At least we finally have someone to tee off on Manning. Welcome!

I'm loving every minute of it all the way to the start of the next exciting Houston Texan seasons. Remember with planning and patience there's always again a draft filled with outstanding talent next and each and every year. Fans, this is just the beginning to an all new winning future era in Texan football. It's not one player it's one team to win. Some of the greatest NFL players have made marks in the game but not necessarily championships.

Thanks to Jerek, who had the foresight to start this thread early in the afternoon.

Welcome to our newest Texan, Mario Williams!

I saw his interview on ESPN, and I am so pumped that he's pumped.

This set of front 7 players is going to enable the Texans' defense to show lots of different looks this year. We'll have offenses on their heels!



(ETA: Thanks for the avatar, Jerek)

Its not his fault, but this is a stupid pick. He is great but Reggie was being compared to Gale. There is not comparison when the talent potential is in question. Listen to the professional analyst.

I'm glad we got Mario. I've been rooting for him to be the pick for sometime, and this will be the first guy I backed for our pick to actually be the Texans pick. That could either be a very good thing or a very bad thing. I might have jinxed Mario, but I'm hoping I haven't. In the last couple weeks I didn't think it was even possible that he'd be our pick, but once they started up negotiations it at least gave him a chance at being the guy. In the end it turns out he will be the pick. Congrats to Mario. I can't wait to see him out on the field.


Side note: Guess this is making Kiper really say, "The Texans what?!?!? That just screwed up my whole dang top ten". Excellent acting by Kiper, or was it a prediction of things to come? Makes you think.

It's the next morning, a little over an hour before our selection becomes official, and I'm still feeling good about the decision.

The Texans have gone through so many changes this offseason, that they almost feel like a brand new team.

(P.S. Consolidation is awesome! )
