I think that one of the most wildly premature things a sports journalist can make is to slap a "draft grade" on a team immediately after the draft. With a lot of these guys, we won't really know how they transition to the NFL before about three years of service. So, to look at a teams' draft and give them a letter grade based solely off of if they filled all their positions of need is just flat out goofy, in my opinion.

Remember all those guys who gave the Texans a really bad draft grade back in 2006 for passing on Reggie Bush? Yeah, I'm sure they'd prefer to have those write-ups deleted from publication and the annals of the Internet forever.

So, when this project came up to play armchair GM and buy or sell on all of the Texans picks in Draft Tek's latest mock draft, I decided that I would be handing out no grade on each pick. I'll simply agree, disagree and explain if it is what I would have went for in that situation based off of need, availability and overall talent. In a draft that is going to be to fill depth primarily, it'll be hard to really disagree with any pick that doesn't have Houston drafting a punter in the first three rounds, but let's get started.
