    A Texans draft without a CSU player is like a day without sunshine.

    I am just so angry I wanted them to grab another TE. That is it, I am turning in my fan card and I am now going to only root for teams who draft according to how I feel they should draft.

    A TE from CSU who also played for A&M for one year.

    EDIT: With Bronco connections.

    Haha, Mayock skipped analysis of Smith and went straight form #186 to #188, Dwyer.

    This is the first pick this year that actually has me rolling my eyes... but then again, at least it is a need position.

    Why did they skip out on Dwyer when they could have gotten this guy 10 picks later???

    This is possibly the best pick in the draft for us, value wise.

    Fastest and strongest guard in the combine.

    Think Bruce Campbell with no hype and CSU connections.

    Is this a joke? An OG from Colorado State is that highly rated? Seriously?

    yeah the texans were really high on sage steele and cindy brunson but shelley
    smith's ability to be both an anchor and a sideline reporter is was led then to pick smith!

    Nothing like 6th round CSU scrubs to make our very weak O-line better. Very disappointed that this franchise has never put any importance on the O-line. I just shake my head in disbelief.

    That's 4 bad picks in a row when this draft started off so well, simply amazing. It must require alot of effort to screw up this bad.

    This is a shameless ploy to give ESPN a reason to do a story on us:
