Sending Tim to the Bottle, 24 Hours Early

What better way to start Draft Weekend by sending our resident Texas Ex to the Bushmill's before lunch?  USA Today has posted a "re-draft" of the 2006 NFL Draft, using the benefit of hindsight as its guide.  The Texans take VY #1 overall, obviously, which is enough to send many of us back to the brink on the eve of Draft 2007.  On a more positive note, DeMeco Ryans, the Texans' selection with the first pick in the second round in 2006, is slotted in at #5 overall by USA Today.  Super Mario?  #14 to Philadelphia.  The most interesting development I see is that these guys have the Jets taking Marcus McNeil #4 overall instead of D'Brickashaw Ferguson, who subsequently slips to the Dolphins at #16.  That's not very logical, in my opinion, but it makes for interesting blog comments, right?
