    And there is no reason to pass him up if he does last that long.

    Crowder at #20 I could probably live with, but Johnson at #11? I don't think I'd pass on Pac Man.

    DJ dropping down to the 20's is amusing as well.

    I can't see the Texans wasting a first round pick on a TE.

    Why not? They wasted a 2nd on Joppru or whatever his name is and he hasn't played a down.

    We're not talking about Henson. His career or lack of will play out in future years.

    The fact is the Texans screwed up big time on a guy who gets hurt getting out of bed and hasn't played a down. And I guess since he's not a Cowboy you think it's fine. My guess is if he were a Cowboy you'd be all over it. But he's a Texan and we all know they never make bad decisions. :whatever:

    TLW47 the vastness of your ignorance must make you one of the greatest Cowboy fans of all times. I simply stated that I did not think that the Texans would pick a TE in the first round and you jumped all over the team. I agree that using a 2nd roung pick on Benny, now seems like a waste, but don't expect for me to sit idle by while you blast me, for no reason. I am sorry that spending a 3rd round pick on a baseball player that could not beat out Vinny T and was thought of as such a great prospect that your team picked up another has been is such a sore subject to you.

    1) How you deduced that I was bashing you from a post about the Texans wasting a draft choice is over my head.
    However you see fit to call me ignorant and that's fine. Go figure.

    2) Henson's career will play out in the next few years to come. I think he signed a really long contract so he'll be a Cowboy for awhile. If he comes in and becomes the guy in 2 years it would have hardly been a waste to spend a 3rd on him. If he doesn't it was a blown pick. That will play out. The Joppru situation is different. They picked him high expecting him to play right away. He hasn't and it's been a few years. That SO FAR is a wasted pick. That's the difference. But I'm ignorant so what do I know?

    3) I've been a Cowboys fan for many years and been real proud to be one. I don't know by what criteria you judge somebody to be the "greatest" fan but yea I'm a pretty damn good one.

    And I'm hoping Bledsoe has a hell of a year. With a few good selections in the upcoming draft and some injured players coming back we'll do fine.
