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.
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.
I've watched a bunch of Vol games. It's the reason I want the Texans to take Bray in the 1st rd. I haven't seen alot of what the guy in that article talks about when it comes to Rodgers. Sure sometimes when a play is run away from him he will take it easy. All WR's do this, evem the beloved AJ. The reason I like Rodgers so much is he has way above avg hands and breaks alot of tackles so he gets alot of YAC. He would be a great fit in the Texans offense because he's a great blocker. I also like Swope as a fit for the Texans for this reason.
I agree trading down and picking Rodgers would be optimal. As for the Texans being conservative? Come On man, they are what they are.
