Default Draft Exorcism: Top 5 Draft busts in Texans history

Dear St. Campbell,

Please guide these sons of Texas steadily in their draft pursuits (and please guide those that are part of this organization who are not card carrying Texans as well) as we are at the precipice of playoff bliss.

It's been a long time since a Houston professional football team tasted the playoffs, and it has been long time for us fans that became Texans fans as we followed other teams, consequently, Texans fans are thirsty for success and ready to be drunk with euphoria from a playoff run. Although many of my fellow fans wear beer goggles when showing their support of the team, they are not drunk, but rather to quote Dr. Klahn "these are lost drunken men who don't know where they are, but do care!" I, too, feel like a lost drunken man who doesn't know where they are, but does care - this is the epitome of the Texans fan experience.

If Earl Campbell is the light, then Charlie Casserly is Bud Adams the Dark. This used to be Casserly's time, this used to be where, unbeknown to us, that the delta between our team's talent and the others incrementally became a canyon and that the visible connect between NFL football and Texans football painfully unfolded every Sunday as a result.

As we have exorcised demons out of Matt Schaub, Mario Williams and Amobi Okoye we now ask that you guide the Texans front office as you guided many Houston teams of the past, and further bury the evil that looked over the draft room in years past.

This is just a list, a reminder of where we were, and where we are not going any longer.


1. David Carr (2002) 1st

2. Tony Hollings (2003) 2nd

3. Jason Babin (2004) 1st

4. Travis Johnson (2005) 1st

5. Charles Hill (2002) 3rd


Taxi squad:

1. Tony Boselli (Expansion)

2. Bennie Joppru (2003) 2nd

3. Ryan Young (Expansion)

4. Antwaun Molden (2008)

May we look not to the dark and depressing past, but to the promising and bright future that awaits us as a team. We have come so far, in just a few short years, and there's so much room for growth ahead of us.

I think I saw him in all of two practices. But I swear, Joppru looked pretty good before the injury. I'm just saying.

I was in tune with the Expansion draft, but forget who was in that pool of players that were draftable. It would be interesting to see who we passed on. Having our top two picks Boselli and Young playing a combined 9 games is just mind blowing to me.

The main thing I think about in this regard is who wasn't available, and that was Willie Roaf of the Saints. He couldn't pass the physical to be included on their unprotected list.

So we get Boselli - who we all know about, and Roaf recovers sufficiently to be a stud on the O-line for the Chiefs for a few years.

As pointed out, Roaf wasn't allowed in the expansion draft after he failed an NFL physical and Boselli somehow passed.

I can't count Molden as a bad pick yet. Dude was a special teams stud and looked pretty good at CB prior to breaking his ankle. We'll have to see.
