T.J. Yates not motivated by draft-day experience

He has started two games, winning both. Last week, the second victory, was against Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton, the 35th choice in the 2011 NFL Draft. Today’s opponent features the No. 1 overall pick, Carolina’s Cam Newton. And in a couple of weeks against Tennessee, it might be Jake Locker, who was drafted eighth, taking the snaps. T.J. Yates was nabbed 152nd overall by the Texans, a fifth-round selection. (Houston Chronicle)
