The Inside Texas Player Draft, Pick No. 21: Michael Huey

With the second to last pick, the IT Community takes offensive lineman Michael Huey, while the IT Staff finally took a running back.

Inside Texas Staff Pick: Cody Johnson, Soph., RB

Sample from the staff discussion

Ross Lucksinger: Ok, this is where we take a running back.

Bill Frisbie: You’ve got to have a running back in there somewhere.

Clendon Ross: What’s more important to Texas? The running backs on the list or another wide receiver or a great potential at DE like Alex Okafor?

Lucksinger: Let me put it this way. Texas got down the field without a running back, but when the Horns got on the goal line they gave the ball to Cody Johnson and they were most effective when he was plowing ahead. He had three touchdowns against OU. In terms of getting the ball in the end zone, he’s the best answer.

Frisbie: He had a breakout game against A&M and I think this season it’ll finally click for him.

C. Ross: You’ve got to have somebody to punch it in.
