We're thinking along the same lines.

I definitely would draft OL in the 1st and might even draft a NT in the 2nd. Then take a WR in the 3rd. One of the guys you listed will probably fall due to teams filling their needs. My personal favorite 2nd tier WR should be availabe in the 3rd rd. (Jordan White)

Stephen Hill is another guy to look at. He's big, tall and fast. Hill set the Ga. Tech record for yds per catch. (30 YPC besting Calvin Johnsons old record) He just hasn't gotten alot of love because of Ga Techs running offense and lack of opportunity. But make no mistake this guys really talented.

The Texans are finally at a point where the Steelers/Pats/Packers are in that there's not a need that has to be reached for. This will help eliminate the mistakes of reaching for need (KJ) like Rick/Gary have done in the past. This is the time that the Texans get to feast on other teams mistakes of reaching for need over BPA. (Sweet) It also helps that the Texans biggest need is an area that the draft is the deepest. (WR)

The neat thing about this yrs WR crop is that the WR's you listed have the ability to be just as good as any other not named Blackmon in this draft. (IMHO) and you can draft a couple of them in the 3/4th rds. The WR's in this draft represent the greatest value of any position available.
