2010 NFL Draft Grades: Texans Fans Grade Smithiak's Draft Class

SB Nation's Battle Red Blog grades the Texans 2010 draft class, which was run by Smithiak. Who is Smithiak, you ask? A combination of GM Rick Smith and coach Gary Kubiak.

I really liked what they did in Rounds One, Two, Five, Six, and Seven. Rounds Three and Four completely flummox me and will continue to do so until further notice. As we've said ad nauseam, Smithiak's track record is such that they deserve the benefit of the doubt, and time will tell how they did. 2013 will be when we know whether 2010 was another 2006 or not. Until then, all we can have is hope and/or dread.

The Texans fans gave out a lot of A's. It looks like they're happy with the class.

Here's the full list of Texans 2010 draft picks:

CB Kareem Jackson

RB Ben Tate

DT Earl Mitchell

LB Daryl Sharpton

TE Garrett Gresham

CB Sherrick McManis

OG Shelly Smith

KR Trindon Holliday

TE Dorin Dickerson
