    Some of y'all hate early draft grades, but here's another:

    More analysis is given for each pick in the link. At least this one wasn't done the minute the draft was through...better late than never, I guess! Take it for what it's worth.

    Good write up. Fair and informative.

    I agree that we will not see the same impact our last few draft classes had, but like he says thats because we are a better overall team.

    Lets hope that a good chunk of this draft class finds a roster spot.

    pretty-fair/spot-on. think I graded out the Texans draft a B+. of course time will only tell :)

    With their final pick in round seven the Texans brought in Alex Brink out of Washington St. to be a developmental quarterback. A four-year starter in the Pac-10, Brink doesn't have great size or the strongest arm but he's a hard worker and team leader who, if everything breaks just right, could maybe be a backup in the pros one day. For the time being Brink will compete for the #3 job behind Matt Schaub and Sage Rosenfels. - NFL Countdown

    Probably the most considered review of the Texans draft I have read, I personally think he will be surprised at just how good this draft class turns out to be.

    I'm not in the room but I believe he is talking bout being competitive in regards to winning the division out right. Not being down to the colts & Jags by an eight point spread at home. 1-5 with in the division, with one game a gimme....I believe the guy is spot on. Until you do it, you are what your record says you are.
