    So what grade would you give this years draft?
    I am going with a solid B+
    I am also putting Schaub as the Texans 2nd round pick.

    I hope somebody chooses the last option. :tomato:

    I'd have to agree with the B+ pick. We filled in as many holes as we could (even though I didn't think they were filled in the right order)

    I would say a B I love the first two picks, of Okoye and Jones. Bennett and Harrison will contribute if nothing else, special teams; but I do not know when they will help at there selected positions.

    The rest I am in a wait and see mode until at least mid way through training camp.

    shoot....I voted A, and I'm the only one so far! Amobi heavily influences my grade of course.

    One step at a time and this years draft was a very good step. We'll pick up the stud LT or C soon and the stud safety as well.

    Go Texans! :homer:

    I age it a D. IMO, they picked up a great DT, but then they picked up another #3 wide receiver, a few "projects," and a guy or two that makes no sense to me (Studdard). What is going through the Texans' head is just not clear to me.

    A. i was blissfully ignorant of most of the players in this year's draft so i know very little of the guys we picked, but by looking at positional drafting i think we did extremely well hitting our weak areas hardest (DT, 2 OL, 2 DB, LB, WR). a perfect draft for me would've been a trade down in the first round, but you cant expect that to happen.

    Seeing as how we can't judge the players yet, I'll give the draft an A, seeing as how every need was somehow adressed.

    Does this draft taste different than a regular beer?

    How do the Texans spell draft? -----> D-L-I-N-E

    AOL FanHouse asked all of the NFL writers to do a draft grade of the teams we cover. I gave the Texans a B: NFL FanHouse Draft Grade: Houston Texans

    We were supposed to say what was good and bad. They should have a summary page of all the draft stuff a little later on the NFL FanHouse page.

    I put links to player information on all the players at the beginning of the post.

    At least you admit it. Most of them are ciphers to me too.

    I think if you count Schaub as a pick ... it's a B .

    Okoye will start and maybe Bennett so with Schaub thats 3 starters .

    Jones in the 3rd is described as high risk / high reward so he's a wait and see .

    The safety from Stanford ... well his best asset is he's smart ... so if the Texans get on Team Jeopardy we're set .

    Frye had a good combine ... maybe he can be developed .

    Studdard and the Kansas State guy ... if they make it's gravy .

    It's always funny how some teams pick guys that you've never considered . I hope our guys are right ... I don't want another Charles Hill experience .

    Yeah, and when they do, everyone throws their hands up with the "I know more than they do" routine. Really gets old.

    For what it's worth, I gave it a C. Just a cr*p shoot anyway you look at it. The only one I see who stands a chance at being an immediate impact player is Amobi. The rest, including Schaub, are big fat ??????marks!!!

    That's funny. Last year at this time, DeMeco Ryans was big fat ?????mark.
    Charles Spencer . . . who is Charles Spencer? And Owen Daniels? Who the hell is this Owen Daniels guy? And Wali Lundy? Who is Wali Lundy? Never heard of him. I've never heard of any of these guys. They'll be busts for sure.:stirpot:

    I give it a B, with Shaub being our 2nd round pick (who gets a starting QB in the 2nd round?!).

    Okoye is a pick that I think will really solidify our D-line, because you can't double-team him and Mario!

    IMo to be fair, Schaub is not our second round pick. He is a free agent that we gave two 2nd round picks for and should be judge as an off season pick up. We can't evaluate the draft based on him being a pick. So far, I see Okoye as beneficial to the team depending on what he does. Mario did not deliver as we thought he would regardless of reasons. Is the Okoye pick in any way to salvage the choice of Williams? Our Dline will be much better, yet our secondary may not have gotten better. The corner was rated #90 in top 100 list I downloaded in February and per the H. Chronicle will compete with Fletcher a free agent pick up. If the safety makes the team as a starter, I will be pleasantly surprised. This draft could go either way.

    What you say is very true, we DIDN'T know squat about most of our draft picks last year. They turned out fine, all seven of them are still with the Texans. It's still a cr*p shoot. Rick Smith seems to know his stuff, and has done some homework, so maybe all of them will be keepers, maybe not. Personally, I hope Jacoby Jones is the return guy we have been needing for a long time. Nothing would thrill me more than to see him take it to the house the first time he gets his hands on the ball. BTW: I never said I hadn't heard of any of those guys, nor did I call any of them a bust.

    I give them an A+.

    My reasoning:

    1) Not one of the players they selected had already been selected by another team.
    2) Not one of the players they selected were dead.
    3) They didn't select anyone twice.
    4) All of the players they selected came from college.
    5) They selected all of the players within the alloted time.

    Very solid draft, they did their homework and 1 & 2 definitely show that the Texans did their homework, right up until each pick.
