have the texans lost their minds?
are you people serious?
Yes the Texans did use 2 draft picks last year on WR's plus they have Jean, but that doesn't lessen the need to draft another WR, even in the 1st. With Posey's injury and cutting Walter, that gives them only AJ, Martin, and Jean to rely on next season. Neither Martin nor Jean have proven themselves IMO. We don't know the whole reason (though some think they do) why they didn't get thrown to as much. It could've been any number of things that prevented them from getting passed to. It could've been their route running, their blocking, or not getting separation. And yes, it could have even been Schaub or Kubiak's fault. But the fact is, the Texans need more WR's. If they get one in the 1st or 2nd doesn't matter as long as they take one. The more pro-ready the better. That's why I prefer someone like Hopkins, Allen, Woods, or Williams.
Look, I'm not saying the Texans will draft a WR in the 1st, but it is a need position, and if a WR is there at #27 they like and have rated higher than the other players available, then take him.
