If you immediately recall Brown's days as a Houston Texans, you have truly been a Texans fan since the beginning.

As they have for the last couple of years, the NFL will have former players announce each team's second round draft pick. This year, the Houston Texans' second round draft pick will be announced by Eric Brown.

What's that?

You don't remember Eric Brown?

EB, as he's known to people writing posts on BRB around 11:40 a.m. on April 24, 2015, was a safety who played for the Texans during the first three seasons of the franchise's existence before retiring at the end of the 2004 season. While Brown may not be remembered with the same immediate flashbacks recognition as fellow Houston secondary stalwarts Matt Stevens and Brian Russell, he started 35 games during those first few formative years of FOOTBALL TIME IN HOUSTON and remains involved with the organization.

So dust off those Eric Brown jerseys, people. He rides again on May 1, 2015.
