NEW YORK, April 27 (UPI) -- The NFL Draft came to a close Sunday with 262 players being chosen from 106 schools. The second-day draft focus was on quarterbacks.
The Houston Texans, for instance, ended up taking Drew Henson after all, even thought it may be all for nothing.
Many scouts considered Henson to be worthy of the first pick in the 2002 NFL draft, but the Michigan quarterback chose baseball instead, signing a four-year, $17 million contract with the New York Yankees.
With the first overall pick last year, the expansion Texans took Fresno State quarterback David Carr. It could have been Henson, who was eligible to be selected in this draft although he urged teams not to take him.
But in the sixth round on Sunday, the Texans took Henson with a supplemental pick, 192 overall.
"If Drew Henson came out, he would have been a first-round pick, so for us this was something we thought was smart to do with a supplemental pick," said Texans General Manager Charley Casserly.
The Texans, who selected Louisville quarterback Dave Ragone in the third round on Saturday, hold the rights to Henson until the 2004 draft.
Henson is slated to be the Yankees third baseman in 2004, but has struggled in the minors this season, batting under .200 for Class AAA Columbus.
The second day of the draft started with the Cincinnati Bengals selecting cornerback Dennis Weathersby of Oregon State.
The Bengals started the draft proceedings on Saturday with the selection of Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Carson Palmer of Southern California.
With far less fanfare on Sunday, the Bengals made Weathersby the first pick in the fourth round and the 98th overall selection.
The 6-1, 204-pound cornerback was considered by many scouts to be worthy of a second-round pick before he was wounded last Sunday. The bullet went below the lungs, passed through and entered the forearm. It could be six to eight weeks before Weathersby is cleared to play.
The Minnesota Vikings took Smith, who rushed for 1,141 yards and 12 touchdowns as a fourth-year junior last season, in the fourth round with the 105th overall pick.
The Seattle Seahawks grabbed Wallace and will likely move him to safety. Wallace was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Award as the nation's best quarterback, throwing for 3,138 yards and 14 touchdowns and rushing for 354 yards and eight more scores. However, he was picked off 18 times.
Dorsey was 38-2 as a starting quarterback for Miami, leading the Hurricanes to a national championship in 2001 and the championship game in 2002, but was not picked until the seventh round by the San Francisco 49ers with the 241st overall pick.
Long, who won the Outland Trophy as the nation's best lineman last season, was selected in the fourth round by the Tennessee Titans, 126th overall.
All can take heart in the success of players such as quarterback Tom Brady and safety Dexter Jackson, the Super Bowl Most Valuable Players of the last two seasons. Brady, who played with Henson at Michigan, was a sixth-round pick in 2000. Tampa Bay took Jackson in the fourth round in 1999.
The last pick, No. 262 overall, was Ryan Hoag, a wide receiver from Gustavus Adolphus.
Florida, Miami and Tennessee all had eight players chosen while seven came from Georgia and Notre Dame and six from Colorado, Florida State, Michigan, Penn State and Texas A&M.
Tuskegee had more players chosen (two) than did Michigan State (one).
