Rashad Carmichael Is The Newest Texan!

I have some sad news to report: a small puppy, not unlike Lassie, was just run over in the parking lot.

And now it's time for the comedy stylings of Rashad Carmichael!

Carmichael, a cornerback out of Virginia Tech, will likely slot in and compete for the dime cornerback job with Jason Allen and Sherrick McManis. Given how most experts thought that the cornerback crop was very deep this year, I have no specific problems with this pick, and I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt to Wade Phillips as well. 

Carmichael goes by the nickname "Roc", but doesn't supplement it with a The, which means he can't be a terrible movie or wrestler. He's a two year starter for the Hokies who had 10 interceptions over the last two seasons. He seems to have a profile similar to what the Texans thought they were getting in Brice McCain, except I guess there is a chance he knows how to defend a slant route.

I would have preferred Chris Carter here, but yano, this isn't so bad.
