Post-season player draft, round 1
Before the season began, the Orangebloods staff went through a Longhorn player draft, where we selected the players we felt would have the biggest impact in Texas' 2011 season. Wow, have things changed.
With the regular season now in the books and the Horns preparing for a Holiday Bowl match-up with Cal, we decided to re-do our draft and see how it compared to our pre-season picks. We'll roll out one round per day over the next six days ... get ready for some pretty big discrepancies in pre-season expectations and post-season realities.
Pre-season first-round selections
1.1 Fozzy Whittaker - Running back (Originally selected round 2, pick 6 by Sean Adams)
1.2 alex okafor - Defensive end (originally selected round 1, pick 5 by Jason Howell)
1.3 emmanuel acho - linebacker (Originally selected round 2, pick 2 by Jason Howell)
