Everybody drafts for needs and Houston will most likely do the same. WR is going to be the 1st round pick here. The Texans had a top notch defense and a top notch unit against the run with Shaun Cody at NT... although it's something that needs to be addressed, it isn't a glaring need for them and I think the fans have made it more of a need than the team actually feels that it is.
If Kendall Wright is @#26 he would be my pick but I am concerned he will not be. For me, no other first round WR exists. So either we reach way down into second & draft WR @ #26 or we get another need position in first and get the best WR we can #58. Dwight Jones is no Wright but he is pretty good.
My mocks are based on the belief that there is only one position that a draft pick should start game one 2012 & that is WR2. Others can disagree. Then we need a NT, OG (at least one that preferably can also play center as Caldwell was supposed to do), another WR and maybe a DE/DT Watt look alike (Derek Wolfe).
