Default Houston Texans: Top 10 Prospects

It was a selection that was booed quite emphatically, but not because NC State star defensive end Mario Williams wasn’t a good player; he was actually great player in college who finished his final season with the Wolfpack recording 62 tackles, 24.5 for a loss and 14.5 sacks. But because the Houston Texans decided to select Williams over the likes of USC sensation Reggie Bush and Texas’ own Vince Young, the only way Texans fans would accept the 6-foot-7, 291-pound Williams was if he became one of the league’s most dominant forces on defense.

From the Article

"Casserly was criticized for a lot of moves during his tenure as Texans GM, but the Williams pick was the last straw, and he resigned shortly after the ’06 draft"

Wrong

Meco was drafted at the same time as Mario, but today is his BD, and he's exactly 25. Tomorrow, he can be considered as over 25, LOL!

Mario was born a few months later.

O.D. is an old man, he doesn't belong on that list, LOL!

But I agree, Bennett should have been on there.

Wait a minute, Bennett is even older than Ryans, so he doesn't qualify either!

He still qualifies, because he's entering his third season, but I guess the guy doesn't like the age he's already at and went with the younger Molden.

LOL, Okoye can still qualify for another 2 years.

Default Re: Houston Texans: Top 10 Prospects

I would move Cushing down the list, and remove Diles. I would add Antoine Caldwell.

One thing I noticed we have a lot of unproven young talent. I hope they start to prove themselves.

I think Cushing is properly placed. And Diles belongs on that list. As you can see with Duane Brown, lineman are difficult to gauge as they have no stats to prove their worth, other than sacks allowed which is misleading.

The list has sort of a drop off after the top 7. The last 3 could be argued, with Caldwell getting mentioned as well as Quinn and I would throw Jacoby Jones in there but thats just me.

I like the idea of the article, just not the execution.

It seems the article mixed in legitimate "prospects" with established starters and didn't get enough of either category imo.

I would've preferred the author to leave out established starters like Mario, Slaton, Amobi, and Duane Brown in favor of guys who have either yet to play for the Texans (rookies) or guys who have not yet nailed down a starting job. Hence the "prospects" label.

Just my opinion though

He named a few players who aren't prospects anymore and are now starters. JJ is still an unproven WR.
