amobi has looked alot better than mario his rookie season (and gary said hes going to be a 'heck' of a player last week when people were talking about the wall..... and gary's usually right)


and bennett has really impressed me.. thers no question in my mind that hes going to be a good corner for many yrs


last two drafts, we've been money in rds 1 - 4
If we learned anything bout Mario and young guys begining in general in the NFL this season it's just this: First you need a six pack of pateince. The guys who are evaluting these young men are not tring to project what they are going to bring to the franchise their rookie seasons . They are projecting what they will bring to the franchise every season. They not all grow up at the same time and at the same level. That is why the draft is an art and not science. After all the numbers are crunched and all the tape is watched... in the end you gotta go with your gut feelings on the guy.


You don't know what the satus is of Jacoby Jones' Shoulder. Niether do I. However I can assume by the lack of fake end arounds on the dives, a feature which was featured promenetly in the rushing attack the first four games befor the incident in the Indy game, that there is something going on there. Now I could be dead wrong. Just saying it's a bit early to be harsh on the guy. He's plaing hurt or he's in the dog house...he's out there balling. He's doing his job. Kubiak is harsh on rookies out of purpose not malice.

I think Charley Casserly would be in my top five for NFL Executive of the Year this year, and he hasn't worked for the Texans in 20 months. Look back at his last draft, the 2006 draft, for Houston. First-round pick: North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams, first overall. After finishing last year shakily, on an injured foot, with eight straight sackless games, Williams has 13 sacks, second in the league, this year ...

Second-round pick: Alabama linebacker DeMeco Ryans, 33rd overall pick. He has more tackles (276) than any player in football since the start of the 2006 season ... Third-round picks: Pitt tackle Charles Spencer, 65th overall pick, who has been injury-plagued since being drafted. University of Miami tackle Eric Winston, 66th overall pick. He's been rock-solid, starting 21 games, including all 14 this year at right tackle ... Fourth-round pick: Wisconsin tight end Owen Daniels, 98th overall pick. He leads the Texans with 739 receiving yards, fifth among all NFL tight ends. Casserly has had his share of clunkers over the years in the draft, but that's one of the best hauls in recent years and is a solid backbone to a .500 team in a tough division.

But it seems to make a pretty good case that Charley Casserly, who was villifed by many locals, maybe didn't do such a bad job after all ?

the draft that never dies.

its comments like this that make me think they really don't know what they're talking about. Spencer suffered a severe, single, career threatening injury & he's labeled injury-plagued?

We already knew that we had a Pro-Bowler in DeMeco, so along with D-Rob
the Texans got 2 of what is their 3 best defensive players in the '06 Draft
and the basis for a very good defense for many years.
Then there's the 2 guys at OT, the bookends for our line. Winston is rapidly
coming into his own at RT, and Spencer was an even better player on the basis of his play early in his rookie year before the devastating injury that took him out for 2 years. If not for that injury, the Texans had their book-end
tackles for the future of their OLine it would appear.
And lets not forget Owen Daniels, who is turning into a pretty good TE and without question the best pass-receiver we've had there.
And honestly, don't we have to let Casserly share in the glory of this really incredibly successful Draft ? He of course was the GM during that Draft who
worked with Kubiak to make these steller selections.
And I'm now hearing that Casserly was the guy pushing the most for Kubiak
to take Mario over Bush, which clearly was the right call. I'd always thought rank on Casserly (who was a lame-duck GM), to take Mario. But that
maybe wasn't the way it was according to reports now coming out ?that Casserly never waivered in his support for Bush, and Kubiak pulled

Of course Casserly had it all wrong on Carr, and he's got to be the one to shoulder the primary blame for that as he basically talked McNair into retaining DC by way of an expensive contract extention before Kubiak arrived on the scene, effectively taking VY or any QB off the Texans Board.
No credit and I think the only one spreading the thoughts that he did have this much input is Charley himself.

I said it in the King thread and just saw Lance Z echoed it but why would CC, as a lame duck, have this much pull over a draft when Reeves was brought in to not only hold his hand but to evaluate him?Peter King is FOS himself.

As far as I ever heard CC wanted to announce Bush as the guy and Reeves had to rein him in.

Because the HC, the GM and the owner were all cherrys. I have believed all a long that CC...managed the scouts....looked up the tallent and made his reports to the HC, OC,DC and the owner. The fact of the matter right now...I know more about the college guys in the draft than the HC, OC and DC do. They simply do not have the time to watch all of the college games during the season. All of them came to the same conclusion: Mario Williams will give this team the best chance to win in the future. And there should be no doubt the guy who first put MW on the radar was C.C.. The others trusted him. They all believed what they saw with their own eyes. The fact that C.C. and Capers could not mesh shouldn't diminish C.C.'s role in the '06 draft. Out of their own mouths they have all said that C.C. was more than wall paper in the room. Kubiak and both Smiths as well as the owner could have nixed the deal...and they didn't. Draw you own conclusion.
