Klosterman on the Draft (NFL, That Is)

Check out the excellent Chuck Klosterman's take on why the Houston Texans took the wrong guy by not taking USC's Reggie Bush.
A snippet:
It is no longer acceptable to pick a player because he's the best guy available -- general managers need to justify their picks through theoretical means that are akin to corporate-speak. The Texans talked themselves into picking an inferior player; they created reasonable, intellectual reasons to make a terrible move. And I realize Houston needs help on defense, but remember -- they had the first overall pick because they were the worst team in the league. They need everything.
