nobody is suggesting this WR class has even a top 10 pick, what this class does have is several prospects who would compliment AJ now, be productive sooner than later & possibly become the Texans future #1 when Andre hangs em up. Nothing more or less, same can be said for QB position. I don't think there should be a top 10 QB prospect this year, like you said it's a crud class, but teams who need to address this particular position still will target player X because of weakness in that area, only so many with next level ability, supply & demand. We could argue rest of year what Texans priority position actually is, most seem to agree that WR positions align with grade & need. One could argue Matt Schaub is good enough to lead Texans to a Superbowl but he just needs another WR threat, so teams cannot just focus on taking Foster & Johnson out of the offense. Someone else might feel that it's on Schaub that he has weapons but fails to flash ability to extend plays under pressure, making QB an even greater need. Yet many others who follow Texans feel it will be a defensive selection, that the offense is not that far of the mark & besides addition of Reed lack pass rush with exodus of Barwin & injury to Cushing/Reed or disruptive nose guard to penetrate middle of offensive line who warrants double teams.
