Rookie receivers are not really reliable no matter how talented they are. I'm not against drafting a receiver high, but I don't think they will. I'd like to see the Texans pursue a guy like Jerome Simpson of the Bengals who is just a playmaker who'll learn playing next to a All-Pro like AJ.
Picking up a quality WR in FA is a nice idea but I don't think it will happen this year. The Texans are right at the salary cap already and won't have the money to spend on other teams FA because we have so many of our own players becoming FA this year. Mario, Brisiel, Dreesen, Foster - RFA, etc... will all be FA and we'll need to attempt to re-sign them. The only way that we can do all that and go after other teams FA is to let Mario walk, or cut other players that don't make sense financially like possibly Jacoby Jones and/or Walter. Maybe we can get Demeco to take a pay cut because he's making way to much money for a 2 down ILB with injury concerns.
