Weaknesses
Off-field maturity and on-field effort have been issues. Stops his route at times if not the primary target. Body language on the field can be defeating. Lacks great explosiveness to run by corners, no extra gear. Will struggle to track the football at times. Not a very instinctual receiver, doesn't always run the routes he should, doesn't fight to get open when the play breaks down.

Cushing had never tested positive for steroids before the draft and Wade convinced the FO brass to take a chance on Braman. He was an UDFA so signing him carried very little risk.

You should read up on your steroid accusation history of Texans players sometime.

If you cant see that the Texans are one of the most conservative orgs in the NFL

then I dont know if we can continue to have an objective discussion, but the conservatism starts at the top with BoB/Cal/Rick/Gary. Not that ther's anything wrong with that, but the Texans will never win a SB with this mindset.
There is no unwritten rule that says you need to have a specific type of player on your team to win a SB other than "winner". Not drafting a guy because you are afraid he won't be on the field because of outside issues is perfectly justifiable, and not adhering to that in certain situations is the reason we laugh at the Titans for drafting Kenny Britt and Chris Johnson and Albert Haynesworth.

Sometimes you've got to take chances with talented but troubled players, to date the Texans have been unwilling to do that.

The only risk they took was signing JJ and Manning to big FA contracts after the defense was historically bad in 2011 and those risks paid off to the tune of 2 playoff appearences. To get to the next level they're going to have to take a few chances on character guys and a guy like Rodgers would be a great place to start. IMHO
If there were less WR's who have about the same abilities as Rogers with less of a concern with maturity and character issues off the field that would make the situation different, but there are a lot of those guys. If they trade back and pick him, fantastic, if not I certainly hope that they use the pick on someone else, or trade back to get him as I believe I will be there in the second round (probably all the way down the middle of the second round) for teams to draft.
