Having all your picks and keeping players healthy certainly helps get a better grade with most writers, I am sure, but like you I think the Texans did very well with what they had.

I am going to make a prediction for the upcoming draft. If the Texans take a LT or RB in the first round, their draft may be judged an A. Anything else has them a C or B at best. Not that they made bad pics, but it's the judgement of people who don't necessarily study the Texans day-to-day. They will only see the big headlines they remember and pull triggers based on concepts seen at 30,000 feet.

were we getting A's last yr with that group?? We had the DROTY, an injured underachieving #1 pick, a promising LT with a serious injury and a somewhat promising RT


this yr, we have a promising DT, a good qb, a promising wr/kr that never recovered to full strength after his injury and an excellent rookie cb

i think this could easily be an A group.. a year is along time in the nfl

And a lot of people would say you need at least three years to determine if a draft class was any good. For me, early on, the only way to look at it is did the class put warm bodies on the field, and were those players competitive?

For last year's draft, we really only had Bennett and Okoye who made significant impact while out on the field, and who were out there consistently. For the 2006 draft, we have the benefit of the second season when MW looked pretty damn good, Demeco went to the pro-bowl (after getting DROY the year before, and OD continued to impress. Not to mention Winston solidifying the RT spot. That's a pretty damn good crop, if you ask me. I couldn't argue with an A for them.

was too busy banging him for his Giant grade to address the Texans near enough, but I was just thinking of our later rd. picks who for various reasons did not see much if any playing time.

5th (#144) Brandon Harrison, SS Stanford 6020 220

Rhodes is going to have fun developing this guy, will wait to see him on the field as mentioned at least a couple years but if he is anything like Stanford alum John Lynch (similar size) he could be the steal of the draft class.

5th (#163) Brandon Frye, OT Virginia Tech 6041 301

Gibbs project now. just what he likes, athletic, quick & tough for ZBS.

6th (#183) Kasey Studdard, OG Texas 6024 303

Demonstrates philosphy of taking linemen in latter rounds pre Gibbs. could become long term RG but will have to prove it starting with OTA's & TC.

7th (#218) Zach Diles, ILB/SLB Kansas State 6003 241

Kubiak said he wished that he played him more @ the end of season. that means he earned playing time in practice, should get a chance in his second season & thats pretty good for such a late day pick.

I think Studdard has a real future with the team. I followed him in college, he is extremely gritty

saw this & thought it should be posted here- http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/5537040.html

The coaches expect receiver Jacoby Jones, guard Kasey Studdard and outside linebacker Zac Diles to start at some point. The jury is still out on safety Brandon Harrison and offensive lineman Brandon Frye.
