Can't win for losing? Don't tell the Texans
Published January 2, 2006
NEW YORK - The Texans never got out of last place and finished there Sunday, securing the first pick in the draft and possibly the rights to Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush.
Houston lost 20-17 in overtime to San Francisco, and that gave the Texans (2-14) the chance to take Southern California's Bush, assuming the junior running back declares for the draft after his top-ranked team plays No. 2 Texas Wednesday in the Rose Bowl.
New Orleans (3-13) has the second pick followed by Tennessee, the New York Jets and Green Bay (all 4-12). Two other 4-12 teams, San Francisco and Oakland, pick sixth and seventh, but the order was to be determined by Sunday night's game between St. Louis and Dallas because of tiebreakers.
The NFL will announce those picks and the rest of the draft order today.
