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.
You have to look at what makes us successful as an offense though, and that all starts with a run oriented offense. 5'11" speedsters aren't typically known for their upfield 1 on 1 blocking skills.
