Published reports are saying that if Tony Boselli passes the physical that he is taking today - and he should - the Houston Texans will take him first in the expansion draft.

Article can be found Here

Personally - I agree fully with the move.

I think so too. If you can't block anybody, there's not much else you can do.

Boselli is a good pick, he should be a cornerstone for a while. A nice useless piece of trivia for him: He was the first draft pick by the expansion Jaguars, and will now be the first expansion draft pick for the Texans. My question is, does it matter who they take number 1? Can teams protect a player after the first pick? Why even have a draft if there's only one team? The Texans should just submit a list or something. Maybe that was a few questions.

no it really doesn't matter who they pick first...teams can remove one player from the list for each taken and can lose a maximum of two. they can't really just submit a list either because the real factor that comes into play here is the salary cap. boselli's salary cap figure is $9 million and that will take up a chunk of what the cap will allow.

Well if they're going to go ahead and get Boselli does this mean they will opt to get David Carr or Julius Peppers and not Bryant McKinney like some people thought?

I believe there is a floor and a ceiling regarding the Expansion draft and $$$. A certain percentage of their roster has to be from the expansion draft, cap-wise.

It would actually make sense to take a few high-priced guys that make $x, rather than a lot of mid-range, in terms of salary and talent, players.

I'll be curious to see who from the Rams is on the list.

I believe that the Texans have to take 38% of their salary cap in players from the expansion draft - in other words, roughly $27 million.

A-yup

"The Texans must select 30 players excluding any restricted free agents or spend 38 percent ($27.24 million) of the $71.7 million salary cap for 2002. They could select as many as 42 players"

The other thing regarding the Jags is that since they are so desperate to dump salary a bunch of players are going to get waived anyway so the Texans can always wait and try to grab some folks on the open market too.
