NFL Draft 2011: Texans Draft Party To Take Place During First Round

Who will be the next great Texan, the ad asks. "I don't know, I just hope he's more pro-ready than Kareem Jackson," my mind says, and we're off to the next NFL Draft.

Lets look at the pros and cons of the Texans draft party. I attended last year, and though the pick was quickly disappointing and got me on some ABC-13 b-roll to complain about how they should have taken Dan Williams, overall a good time was had. Prepare to be gouged for food and drinks, as you would any time you go to a place like this. Some players, ex-players, and cheerleaders will sign some autographs, and they'll have a live radio broadcast on the scene as well.

If I had one bit of advice to give to you, potential Texans Draft Party attendee, it would be to go there early. In fact, get there as soon as the gates open. Because for all the amenities that the Texans offer, there was a massive shortage of chairs last year. Perhaps the lockout will thin the numbers, but I don't think it's gone far enough to do any actual damage to fans yet. Get there early, bring a friend, and have them save your seat while you're off getting autographs. Chairs are valuable real estate.
