Default BR: 32 second day nfl draft players will play opening weekend

Quote:
history of the NFL Draft is full of second-day selections that went from afterthought or obscurity to instant NFL success. A few examples from the past few years of players who outperformed their draft status as rookies (and beyond) include:
Quote:
* Houston Texans running back Steve Slaton, who started 15 games as the 26th pick in round three of the 2008 Draft, rushing for 1,282 yards and nine touchdowns on 268 carries and adding 377 yards and one touchdown on 50 receptions.

Quote:
AFC SOUTH

Anthony Hill, TE, Houston Texans (Round Four, Pick 22, North Carolina State)

Hillís main assignment as a rookie will be to clear rush lanes for second-year tailback Steve Slaton. Regarded by many scouts as the best blocking tight end in the 2009 Draft, Hill provides a perfect complement to the Texansí starting tight end, Owen Daniels, whoís a prolific pass catcher.

Opponents should expect to see plenty of two-tight end sets from Houstonís offense in 2009. Hillís size and bulk (6'5", 262) make him an ideal blocker in short-yardage and goal-line situations.
