Default How to survive draft day as a Texans fan.

1.) Understand what the current Texans FO and coaches want from each position.
Generally speaking they...
a. Like leaders and captains

b. Like versatility

c. Like big conference guys early .

d. Like quickness over speed .

e. prefer athletes over size on all levels of both sides of the ball

f. like guys who have played a lot/experience.

2.) Understand what value the Texans FO and coaches attach to each position.

3.) Understand that the Texans have one of the largest, if not the largest Scouting team in the NFL. i.e. they know more about these players than you know about your children (especially your teenagers).

4.) Relax, it only counts once they get on the field and we actually see how they fit on this team and into our gameplans.

5.) Remember, most draft picks are journeyman at best, busts are common place, and this FO has got a fairly solid record over the past few years.

6.) Don't expect the media to show any coverage of the Texans or their picks.

What do you mean?! I've watched a ton of youtube videos on these guys and read a bunch of draft websites! You're telling me I'm not a draft genius? Bah!

That's key, and was the impetus behind my other thread. I don't think the fan base has any real sense of what they want from each position because they have kind of gone about things in avery haphazard way. And where they have been consistent, it hasn't produced on the field. I mean, you can keep drafting 3 techs all day for the DL, but if we keep having one of the worst pass rushes in the NFL, at some point, I'm thinking maybe they're going about it all wrong, especially when there are 31 other teams to look at to see how else it can be done.

Yeah, your post is on the money too.

The team has gotten better and better each year, not sure I'm writing off the blue print yet.

This is one of those things that reveal itself in time . I do think the Texans use a certain criteria for their guys .

1. Like leaders and captains

2. Like versatility

3. Like big conference guys early .

4. Like quickness over speed .

5. Like TE's and CBS .

We've graduated from picking people they blast off on to picking people they just don't care about or think will perform well enough to talk about. It's a step forward.

It's going to be hard for them when the Texans are in the Super Bowl and they refuse to show any plays that involve them.

Shelley Smith can start this year.

OL is sorted.

Brown, S. Smith, Caldwell, Briesel, Winston

Myers, Butler, W. Smith, Studdard in reserve.

I can live with that.
