The 5 worst draft selections in Houston Texans history


The youngest franchise in the NFL has only made the playoffs twice since its inception in 2002,  with two playoff wins. Part of the reason this team has lacked franchise is because they have made some awful selections in the draft that did not pan out. Here are the five worst draft picks in Houston Texans history.

    Patrick Willis
    Marshawn Lynch
    Darrelle Revis
    Michael Griffin
    Dwayne Bowe
    Jon Beason
    Joe Staley

      The worst pick of all time was Kareem Jackson who was a NO 1 pick overall and I’ve yet to see him cover anyone………..he cant cover my mom w/a blanket!!!

        I agree. What a waste of a #1 pick.

    I still think it is not fair that Carr was forced to play behind a Jr. High offensive line and is known as the franchise’s worst pick. NOBODY can play QB while running for your life on every play, except hand-offs. Give the Texans the O-Line the Oilers had in the 80’s-early 90’s and Keenum would be All-Pro.

    I get the disaster Carr was for the Texans but the worst quarterback BY FAR that the Texans ever drafted was Dave Ragone. Carr would be Aaron Rodgers by comparison.

    You don’t get franchise players in the 3rd round. I agree these guys were flops but using the word franchise in the same sentence as these guys is wrong.
