I hope so too.

I had Stiils in a few of my mocks. He's as talented as any WR in that draft.
I cant find any prior in-game concussion history. The only thing that comes up is a mild concussion from a car accident before a bowl game.

I also think its not fair to base a teams draft selection up against another teams steal. I think Stills was rated 3rd round and went in 5th. You cant make the conclusion that the Texans knew he was going to be there in the 5th. They took their guy who is bigger, taller, longer, has bigger hands and catches everything around him and moved on to other needs. Stills on the other hand is smaller, has been noted to drop easy passes and has off the field issues.

Lastly, these guys have played in a couple of pre-season games. Lets see how things shake out over the next couple of years and then we will see who was the better value. It very well could be Stills. But it also could be that he is out of the league in 2 years due to off the field issues.
