The Houston Texans might still be considering NC State defensive end Mario Williams with the No. 1 overall pick, but I just don't see them passing on USC running back Reggie Bush. Even if Bush is hard to sign, running back is the one position where a player can come in late and still make an impact in his rookie season. Last year, Ronnie Brown missed the beginning of training camp and still finished with 907 rushing yards while splitting time with Ricky Williams in Miami.

I expect the Saints to go with Mario Williams if they do not trade down from the second pick.
