The Top 5 Draft Busts in Houston Texans History
The Houston Texans have had some success in the NFL Draft in their 13-year history. But this list highlights the not-so-successful players they’ve picked
Now that the NFL Draft is over, now the waiting game begins. The wait to see if the Texans draft picks turn out to be successes like Andre Johnson was in 2003, or even J.J. Watt in 2011.
But there’s the chance that some of the players may not live up to the potential that many have thought. A few, hopefully none, could be flat-out-busts.

Now the Texans had had their share of players that just didn’t work out at all. Even the team’s first overall pick, David Carr in 2002, is a tough call here.

But Carr avoids this list, as we look back at the draft history of the Texans. There were many players who far worse that he was as you look over the past draft boards.
So here are the five worst draft picks made by the Texans, starting with the pick right after Andre Johnson.
