    Bored. Put together a list of prospects each year who I hoped would be Texans. Andre the only one selected but thats OK, cause several where already off the board (Ware, L. Brown, Stewart) missed on 02 draft, badly, did not have a 2nd rd. pick (because trading up for Babin- no Bob Sanders) while I'm good with the Mario Williams pick & admit to being wrong in this case. anyway here is my list, whats yours (if your bored too!)

    02 Julius Peppers, North Carolina DE 6062 283

    03 Andre Johnson, Miami WR 6020 230

    04 Bob Sanders, Iowa SS 5083 204

    05 [​IMG] DeMarcus Ware, Troy DE/OLB 6040 251

    06 [​IMG] Vince Young, Texas QB 6045 229

    07 [​IMG] Levi Brown, Penn State OT 6054 323

    08 [​IMG] Jonathan Stewart, Oregon RB 5102 235

    It is the player that he most wanted in that draft.

    AJ was the only one of his guys that the Texans actually drafted.

    I interpreted the thread as being "who was your favorite prospect for the Texans in each draft" so I'll play along.

    02 - Julius Peppers

    03 - Andre Johnson

    04 - Sean Taylor

    05 - Shawne Merriman

    06 - Mario Williams

    07 - Adrian Peterson

    08 - ehh...I didn't really have a favorite prospect. Jonathan Stewart, I guess.

    nice list, like it! Sean Taylor was a huge favorite for that 1st pick I would have considered him if I had thought he would still been available, same with Peterson. Merriman & Ware went 11/12 before the Texans picked @ #13th that was a tough one for sure then to add insult to injury traded up for Babin (they would have selected 40th overall in the 2nd rd.) Bob Sanders was still on the board when the Colts traded up with Pittsburgh #44 that one about killed me :gun: I was wrong about Mario, love that pick now but @ the time I wanted to severe ties with Carr (not extend his contract) & draft a franchise QB from Houston.

    we did get Andre Johnson who has been everything as advertised. this year I'll take the combination of Duane Brown & Steve Slayton as being = to Jonathan Stewart, if Barber can knock a few heads come in & be a poor mans Bob Sanders this will go down as the greatest draft day deal in Texans history.

    02 - Julius Peppers

    03 - Andre Johnson/Larry Johnson

    04 - Sean Taylor/Tommie Harris

    05 - Derrick Johnson

    06 - Mario Williams/Ko Simpson

    07 - Jared Gaither/Darrelle Revis

    08 - Ryan Clady/Ray Rice


    Out of this impressive list, we only picked two of "my" guys. '02 and '05 were very weak classes overall. I loved Larry Johnson at Penn State and was shocked to actually see a 2000 yard runner with measurables fall that far.

    Didn't follow the draft too closely until after the 2-14 season.

    06 - Mario or Reggie (anyone but Vince)

    07 - LaRon Landry or Adrian Peterson

    08 - Jonathon Stewart or Chris Williams

    Been wanting a flashy tailback for a while... I hope Slaton can fill the gap!

    Didn't follow the Draft as closely as I do now till the '06 draft, so here are my top 3 each year at the time of the draft...

    2006: Mario Williams, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Reggie Bush
    2007: Patrick Willis, Adrian Peterson, LaRon Landry
    2008: Branden Albert, Jerod Mayo, Antoine Cason


    But it's hard to argue against the Mario, Amobi, and Duane (trade down) picks...

    simply too many (good) picks. you only get one. since I've followed you for at least those three years I would say your favorites where:

    2006: D'Brickashaw Ferguson
    2007: Patrick Willis
    2008: Jerod Mayo

    am I wrong? who knows you now. I think you'll be happy with both Brown & Adibi :)

    2005: Derrick Johnson
    2006: Reggie Bush
    2007: Adrian Peterson
    2008: Rashard Mendenhall

    Seems like the exercise would be a little more meaningful if it was limited to folks actually available at the Texans' original draft position. Demarcus Ware would be nice and all, but he was gone for instance before the Texans' pick.

    wow, your good! lol

    I'm so happy with how our last three drafts have turned out. Mario has proved to be such an awesome pick, Amobi can be great, and now hopefully our franchise LT this year. D'Brick hasn't performed as a #1 overall nor Reggie. P-Willie is a stud but I see the importance of having a stud DT next to Mario. Our team is getting so so good.

    Using this criteria, I would have preferred:

    02 - Peppers

    03 - Johnson

    04 - Dunta Robinson

    05 - Derrick Johnson (no trade) or David Pollack (trade)

    06 - Mario

    07 - Okoye

    08 - Mendenhall (no trade) or Cason (trade)
