Houston is just going to miss the playoffs this year, but they've got to be feeling positive about their young talent, having hit on Andre Johnson, Amobi Okoye, and, yes, Mario Williams. The much maligned former number one pick is now tied for 10th in the NFL in sacks with 9.5, 5.5 of which have come in his last four games.
Back in April I said if the 2006 NFL Draft were redone, Vince Young and Marcus McNeil would be the top two picks. McNeil's play has slipped this year, and Haloti Ngata is playing like an All Pro, so I'd say the top two picks would be Young and Ngata if the draft were redone right now. But I'd lean toward Mario Williams with the third pick ahead of Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, and even teammate DeMeco Ryans.
