For my money , the reciever in this draft that most describes is Alshon Jeffery , second would be Michael Floyd.
We need the best player. Not a guy who just helps in the red zone.
All we've had are big WR's...Andre, Kevin, Jacoby...Hell, B.Johnson isn't small. Lestar Jean has a chance to stick next year and he isn't small.
OD is not really small...He's 6'3"...Dreesen is 6'4" and is a good box out jump up and catch the ball guy.
How often have we thrown the fade route to Andre? How often have we used Kevin Walters Big body in the EZ?
Even if we aren't throwing the jump ball type of passes, how often have you seen the back shoulder throw from a QB on the Texans roster?
The Texans have plenty of big targets. Hell, in fact that's pretty much all we've had. We don't utilize their size very often. The QB's need to improve on their redzone passing because we've been pretty mediocre at it. Our best RZ weapon has been Arian by far.
Id rather have a smaller more skilled guy than a bigger less skilled guy.
I would be happy with any of those top 4 or 5 receivers, but I would actually trade up for Wright if I had the chance.
Wright would not only help take pressure off of AJ, he'd also help take pressure off of OD in the middle of the field.
