Here's the last 10 years - there are two outstanding players on that list in Wahle and Williams. Williams is one of the best NTs in the league and has been for a long while. Hollings was a bust as a #2 pick. Brown is a guy who was worth a 6th round pick, Cherry didn't do much. Wright flopped. Brooks looks like he'll be worth the pick.
In short, I'd say it looks like most drafts. Higher picks net better players but there is, like always, some bust potential - especially when you reach as the Texans did for Hollings.
