The NFL Draft

Texans Snub Bush, Sign DE Mario Williams

The Houston Texans got the NFL draft off to a stunning start a day early, bypassing Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush and instead signing defensive end Mario Williams with the No. 1 pick Friday night. Houston started negotiating with both Williams and Bush this week.

This is something Badanov made the call on yesterday, and ain't I the lucky one for not having the time to comment that no way the Texans DON'T select Bush:

"Mario Williams, as a second new defensive end could make a difference immediately for the Texans. Bush could well take a whole season or two to develop, but Williams can make plays now."

With Bush back in the picture, this could throw the rest of the selection process into total chaos. Like pro football isn't ALREADY total chaos, right. Bush is a scatback, and behind the right line could turn into something very special, but as Bad said, some teams might very well want their star NOW. Whatever, the first round is going to be a doozy.
