Off Topic Mario Williams = Sam Bowie

What more can said? The Houston Texans are fools for passing on both Reggie Bush and Vince Young for DE Mario Williams. This will go down as one of the biggest blunders in NFL draft history.

The Houston Texans have signed North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams, making him the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft Saturday.

Texans general manager Charley Casserly had cautioned earlier in the week that anyone concluding the team had decided on Southern California tailback and Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush and was only using Williams as leverage was mistaken.

The choice of Williams by the Texans could dramatically alter the landscape of the early segment of the first round. The New Orleans Saints, with the second choice, have indicated they would snap up Bush if he fell to their slot. But the Saints had hinted, in general, that they might entertain trade offers for their pick.

The availability of Bush at the No. 2 spot would almost certainly elicit trade offers.
