Remember when we badly needed a LT? Brought everybody an their momma in. Didn't pan out. How did we solve it? Picking the best tackle on the board and going forward.
I don't think Wallace would have fit the Texans anyway. I'm sure they will be snagging some camp and preseason cuts. But the Texans need as close to a sure thing to start opposite Dre as possible.
That draft was pretty loaded at LT and it is a HUGE risk going into a draft focusing entirely on 1 position of need for your 1st pick. All I'm saying here is 1st round. They may draft 2 wrs but I just don't see it being in the 1st. Only way is if the draft unfolds in such a way that when it is their pick the person highest on their board is a wr. I would rather see them trade back and get an extra pick if things don't fall their way. Outside of Patterson and Austin I don't see a 1st round stud. Maybe Hopkins.
