Default Past 8th Picks in the First Round

I thought it might be interesting to see who has been drafted 8th in the first round in recent drafts:

2006 - Donte Whitner, SS, Ohio State
2005 - Antrel Rolle, CB, Miami
2004 - DeAngelo Hall, CB, Va Tech
2003 - Jordan Gross, OT, Utah
2002 - Roy Williams, SS, Oklahoma
2001 - David Terrell, WR, Michigan
2000 - Plaxico Burress, WR, Mich State
1999 - David Boston, WR, Ohio State
1998 - Greg Ellis, DE, North Carolina
1997 - James Farrior, ILB, Virginia
1996 - Tim Biakabutuka, RB, Michigan
1995 - Joey Galloway, WR, Ohio State
1994 - Sam Adams, DT, Texas A & M
1993 - Willie Roaf, OT, Louisiana Tech
1992 - Bob Whitfield, OT, Stanford

and......

1982 - Mike Munchak, G, Penn State (Oilers)

It looks like a great spot to pick as there have been very few busts out of the 8 spot. It appears that most teams have chosen to use the pick on a DB or a T, both high priority needs for the Texans. Also WR but I can't see us using the pick on a player like Ted Ginn.

Does anyone besides me feel like CARTMAN waiting on the Nintendo Wii, when it comes to the draft.

Perhaps I should freeze myself and have my buddy Kyle thaw me out when the draft arrives.

Depending on how people grade-out at the combine....I wonder if we'll trade back to pick up some extra picks since we don't have a 3rd this year. Kubes & Crew believe to build up depth via the draft, so I wouldn't be surprised.
