Steph Stradley pens a piece for UltimateTexans.com discussing what the 2002 draft showed about quarterback development. She says that it's hard for any player to succeed under the wrong conditions, especially quarterbacks. She also says if the Texans waited to start David Carr until his offensive line was better, they never would have started him.

John Harris, newly of HoustonTexans.com, says the Texans are likely to target a slot receiver in the third day of this year's draft.
