Expansion draft/injuries

Tony Boselli was selected as the first pick of the 2002 Houston Texans expansion draft. However, due to frequent injuries over the previous two years that were treated improperly by Jaguars team doctors and the surgeon to whom they sent him, he was placed on injured reserve and retired after the season having never played a single down for the Texans. It was later learned that the doctor who performed Boselli's shoulder surgery had attached a tendon to the wrong spot and in doing so had caused it to atrophy during rehabilitation exercises. The Texans decision to select Boselli in the expansion draft was highly questioned following his retirement and to this day there are those in Houston who feel that the Jacksonville Jaguars knew perfectly well that he was "damaged goods" before the draft. It's often speculated that the Texans selected Boselli first in the expansion draft with an understanding that the Jaguars would then allow the Texans to select both Seth Payne and Gary Walker. Even though Boselli failed to play for the Texans, his selection as the first player taken in the expansion draft was seen as a clear sign of the direction that the Houston Texans wished to go.
