    Yuck. There is about 1 real hit and the rest are all relative disappointments for first round picks. Let's hope this one is better.

    1 27 Jason Babin Texans DE Western Michigan
    1 28 Chris Gamble Panthers DB Ohio State



    That's 27 solid starters out of 48. The bolded are people I would love to have or have had in a Texans Jersey. That's 12 names of guys that are stars. If you're really interested go pull the names from the top 5 of the last 8 years. I'll bet that the numbers aren't that much higher (No I haven't looked but I would guess that its probably 35 starters and no more than 20-25 stars) considering what we're going to pay on the bottom end of the draft.

    Of course Duane Brown is a Texan and Jason Babin was originally drafted as a Texan, but is now with the Eagles.

    point is thier are good players to be found at end of 1st round, I am all for trading up but talent is getable at back of 1st. If FO does its homework.

    Yep, there are good to great players to be found anywhere. It's easy for us fans to get "disappointed" by later draft positions but that's unnecessary.

    Remember how many people were disappointed we were drafting 11th this past draft? "Oh all the good players will be gone. All the elite talent will be taken" Bull sh*t!!!

    The grass is always greener. If you're drafting 6th, you assume all the players you want will be taken top 5. If your drafting 15th, they'll be gone by 14. If it's 25th... they'll all be gone by 24. :)

    Babin was not a Texan. That was Jaysawn Babing. The Eagle can play. He could not. Maybe it is coaching.....

    Shows you really need to go with BPA here without forgiving any big red flags.
