Default Gosselin says Texans had best Draft in 2009

Quality from top to bottom. Top: Cushing was an All-Pac 10 linebacker and leader of the Southern Cal defense. Bottom: Nolan started only two seasons but intercepted 10 passes. Barwin and Casey bring versatility, and Brice has 4.33 speed.

Gosselin is one of the most respected, impartial NFL writers around, so this impresses me

Default Re: Gosselin says Texans had best Draft in 2009

It bothers me when the NFL "experts" start saying we had the best draft or anything else for that matter. These were all the same "experts" that said we had one of the worst drafts in 06 because we picked Mario over Bush etc., etc... We see how that draft turned out. I guess I'm just use to hearing all their negative words against the Texans.

Me, too.

The fact that I'm "ho-hum" on the Texans' draft combined with Gosselin's ringing endorsement makes Smith look even better this year.

Well, to get an apples to apples comparison, we need to know how he graded our past drafts.

In all fairness, while most of the "experts" downgraded us because they were too busy servicing Reggie Bush to really take a good look at Mario, the majority of the reviews I remember from '06 were extremely positive about the remainder of the picks.

Yeah, I remember more than one report card that gave us a failing grade just based on passing up Reggie (and there's a special place in sportswriters hell for those people), but all in all, even with their track records, I'd rather have the so-called experts loving our draft as opposed to hating it.

Houston: The Texans had the best third round, finally addressing the weakest element of their team with offensive tackles Winston and Spencer. Both players carried second-round value into the third round.

I havent really had the time yet to look over everyones draft but the one that suck out the most to me was Philly. If they dont have the best offense in football in the next 2 years Ill be shocked.

And that should more or less tell you everything you need to know about getting excited about draft grades.

In fairness, even in hindsight that's not a bad draft. A+ no probably not. But maybe a B or B-. It's all a crapshoot anyway, so grades are meaningless. The only grade worthwhile is the one given after 3 seasons.
