I know I said we were done with the NFL draft for a while, but I guess I lied. We're back. Not, particularly, because I want to dredge up dead stories, but because I goofed. In my Draft Recap story, I unwisely wrote:
It's not that what I wrote can't be argued. It can. Many have. The odd thing is that it stands in direct contrast to something I wrote before the draft:
You see the slight discrepancy. On the one hand, I noted that Smith made a compelling case for taking Williams over Bush. Then, in a draft recap, I call the Texans' draft "indefensible." That doesn't sit right with me, naturally. The reason I even remembered this was because I'm A Realist wrote a strong defense of the Williams selection as well.
Now, to the point. I -still- think that taking Williams over Bush can be argued reasonably, as Realist so ably did. I also stand by my statement that the Texans were foolish to take anyone other than Young, as argued here and here, among other places.
I guess I'd be interested to hear more on Williams over Young, as opposed to just Bush. Realist? Others?
