Texans pull off pre-draft stunner

The Houston Texas, who have the No. 1 pick in Saturday's NFL Draft, signed North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams on Friday night. This after many experts said the Texans would select USC tailback Reggie Bush with the first pick.

Now all eyes will be on the New Orleans Saints, who hold the No. 2 pick. Several mock drafts have the Saints taking Virginia offensive tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson at that spot. They could also take a QB or trade the pick for more selections. Will they pick Bush?

The Texans' move may or may not have any influence on what the Saints do Saturday, but it's made me more eager to watch what was already going to be an interesting draft.
