Texans to pick Bush

The Houston Texans will select USC running back Reggie Bush with the No. 1 pick in this April's NFL draft, pending the formality of Bush announcing that he is turning pro, team and league sources told Chris Mortensen.

Almost nothing will change that course, the sources say, even after the Texans received word Friday from an intermediary representing Texas quarterback Vince Young that the Houston native is leaning strongly to also going pro.

The Texans will pick up an $8 million option on quarterback David Carr, who was the expansion team's first draft pick four years ago. Texans owner Bob McNair made the decision after getting extensive evaluations from various sources that strongly endorsed Carr, including a favorable report from Dan Reeves, the former longtime NFL coach hired last month as a consultant.

USC's Matt Leinart, who could have been the first pick a year ago had he turned pro after his junior season, still remains the consensus top quarterback in the NFL draft, even if Young comes out. For Leinart, he is likely to be the choice of the New Orleans Saints at No. 2 with Young projected to the Tennessee Titans at No. 3.

Young would be mentored by Titans quarterback Steve McNair, who is hoping to sign a new contract with the club for the 2006 season.

Leinart also would be desirable to Tennessee, where his former USC offensive coordinator Norm Chow is now calling plays for the Titans.

Don't think this one has been posted here. I would rather see us pick a defensive player but if we get Leinart, oh well...

RE: Texans to pick Bush

I just read this on ESPN.com, myself. I have a very strong feeling that if the Texans take Bush, then the Saints will trade their #2 pick to Tennesee so they can draft Leinart and us picking up their #3, a 2nd rounder and maybe a later round pick. If Young is definitely coming out, I see the Saints taking him. I don't know why I'm feeling this way, but I think the Saints will have a better shot at signing VY than Leinart. As much as I'd rather see Leinart in New Orleans, I have too strong of a feeling that Young will be the man chosen. I have nothing against Vince Young being in New Orleans, I'm just afraid of drafting a "Vick-esque" QB.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

I feel the same way. But your little senario would not be half bad.

RE: Texans to pick Bush

The Texans would be retarded not to draft Bush unless Reeves believes that Davis and Morency can shoulder the load and taking D'Brick will help the offense more. Remember Reeves is the one who started the Running Back dynasty in Denver and he knows what it takes to turn an average running back into a great one, so with that said why would he waste the money on Bush.
