    C+ Grade
    The Texans took a risk going with front seven players (J.J. Watt, Brooks Reed) with their first two picks when the secondary needed so much help, but we can’t kill either pick because this team needs defenders period. (We are worried Reed’s draft stock was inflated.) This team has not drafted defense consistently, which is why they spent their first five picks helping new coordinator Wade Phillips. It’s an uneven approach that speaks to this organization’s desperation.

    They gave Seattle a B+, so I wouldn't think much of those writers.

    Draft grades before a down is played are as worthless as mock drafts and tits on a boar.

    an we blame anyone for doubting our drafts? Seems like one or two of us (me included) have bashed the coaches. I think they got it more right than wrong but this year compared to last, I am ready to go down with them on this draft. Now go get a vet CB and do something for NT. Anyone think we can get Ron Brace from Pats?

    Opinions are like butt holes, everybody has one. I have seen this draft graded from A+ to D. We won't know jack about how this draft pans out until we see some football (preferably a couple of years worth).

    Bob McNair may not wait 2-3 years to evaluate this draft.

    1. There isn't a sumanabitx in this draft that isn't talented.
    2. Bob will be judging the coaching staff, not the players.

    ou honestly don't think the coaches draft decisions will be judged by the owner? I think Bobby is basking in the warm glow of the fans' reaction to this draft. If Brooks Reed starts at OLB and falls apart with minimal impact after 3 games, I think McNair will be all over his entire staff including the scouts.

    So basically by the reasoning of this article, every team who had too many holes to fill with one draft had a bad draft? I think we had a great draft because we narrowed down our needs in free agency to just a couple of positions. If we can add a top CB, and also a decent veteran WR and NT then we will be well on our way to a decent season. Its not too much to ask to add one real quality player along with 2 decent players.

    Not sure how anyone can look at the 9 years this franchise has put together and not think that that "Haters' are on to something.

    Yep. Most people probably gave us an F after the 2006 draft. Now, most people would probably give us an A++++++++++.

    the writer probably doesn't know anything about football then. the front 7 is more important and it's what make your secondary. no pass rush and your secondary is most likely shit. good pass rush and you have a good-decent secondary.

    although i think i wouldve preferred nick fairley, robert quinn or prince and for 2nd round i wouldve picked rahim moore.
