Before suffering a torn labrum in October, former North Carolina offensive tackle Brennan Williams was earning first-round grades from some scouts. Able to address other draft concerns early, the Texans might have found their starting right tackle in the third round.
Teams swinging for the fences in the first round often come up empty, but a more measured, logical approach often results in better players drafted in later rounds. No one did that better Friday night than last year's Super Bowl opponents. Which other teams fared well in rounds two and three?
Potential first-round picks Jonathan Cooper and Sylvester Williams were the main draws but running back Giovani Bernard, offensive tackle Brennan Williams and little-known wideout Jheranie Boyd also turned heads.
