Article is from ESPN the Magazine

Makes some interesting points about Texans' defense last season (many of which I am sure most of us were aware and a few that surprised me).

Clearly, I think the Packers were seeking to replicate our success by drafting Nick Perry & Mike Daniels.

Very interesting article, but I have a hard time believing the Texans are the first team to significantly improve a unit by drafting multiple players to that unit. I do think it's the absolute best policy to follow when one unit clearly lags behind the other, though; to the point whereby I'm not really sure why everyone would not do it.
