As I write this on a Monday evening, David Culley is still the Houston Texans Head Coach.

However, that doesn't really mean anything either. As current head coaches fall victim to black Monday, the rumors are already swirling about whether the organization will stay put with its coaching staff as is. Current Texans passing game coordinator/Quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton is being requested to interview for offensive coordinator positions as well. So, if a change occurs, expect it to happen suddenly.


Of all the rookie QB's that were drafted last year, none of them were better than Davis Mills! How's that for a sentence I didn't expect to be writing last January! In fact, Davis Mills has surpassed David Carr for most touchdowns thrown by a rookie QB in Texans history by throwing for 2592 passing yards! This tentative comfort at the QB position frees Houston up to get more aggressive along the defensive line by drafting Kayvon Thibodeaux with the 3rd pick! Thibodeaux is lightning quick off the edge and uses superior hand fighting techniques to live in the backfield of opposing offenses.

TEXANS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
