BREAKING NEWS: Texans Sign Mario Williams

The draft just got a lot more exciting. Saturday is gonna be something to look forward to. The Houston Texans have announced that they have agreed to terms on a 54 million dollar contract with Mario Williams. That makes Williams the number 1 overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft. This was something that I wouldn't have expected in a million years. Now it's back to the drawing board for my mock draft as in the process I had Williams going #2, and Bush #1. Everything was based on that, and now things have changed. Teams will have to rethink everything now, and the Saints better prepare for lots of phone calls about a trade tonight.

More on the NFL Draft later. How does this impact the Lions? Find out soon on Pride of Detroit.
