This has nothing to do with his combine 40 time, but I just don't think the Texans have an interest (early) in drafting Wright. Gary Kubiak has never favored short WRs. Not here in Houston or while the OC in Denver. The mold of a WCO WR is 6ft+ 200lb+ and I think the Texans will look for a wideout in that mold.

He played David Anderson quite a bit...

I would not be upset at all with Wright, but at this point I have other things/players in mind.

Yes, a 7th round pick. The Texans drafted Trindon Holliday, as well. They very well could take a slot receiver/returner that's under 6 ft at some point in the draft. But by that time, Wright will be well off the draft board.

I don't know what that has to do with anything. You said the offense favored bigger WR's (which it does), but that didn't stop him from playing DA quite a bit.

The fact that he was a 7th rd. pick just emphasizes the point. He especially shouldn't have seen the field much.

Then you're not paying attention. Have you ever seen Gary Kubiak start a short WR? Do you think he would draft a slot WR in the 1st round?

I don't think Kubiak would target a short WR for the WR2 position. At the end of the day Kubiak actually favored the taller and more of a project wr in Jones over the released Anderson if you want to really look at what happened. I can see Kubiak playing a shorter wr, but only in multiple wr packages...if he doesn't have anyone better on the roster. Kubiak wants big targets...that's why we run so many multiple TE packages with Andre as the lone wr. Blocking is important in this stretch p/a scheme. I think Lucky has it right here.
