Default Texans may go WR in 1st.

Saw this in the chron today and didn't see it posted anywhere. Article by McLain on the Texans going after a WR in the 1st. Take it for what it's worth!

Time flies when you're passes.

Two years ago, the Texans were coming off a 6-10 season and had cap dollars available. They had finished 30th in defense, including 32nd against the pass.

RotoWorld's Evan Silva on Mayock's Top 5 WRs

Quote:
Wide Receivers
1. Cordarrelle Patterson*, Tennessee
2. Keenan Allen*, California
3. Terrance Williams, Baylor
4. Tavon Austin, West Virginia
5. Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech

Notes: The receiver class is exceptionally deep. So good players are inevitably going to be left out when Mayock only ranks five guys at each position. Clemson's DeAndre Hopkins was the most notable snub and is a legitimate first-round possibility. Tennessee Tech's Da'Rick Rogers oozes talent but has off-field concerns. Justin Hunter (Tennessee), Stedman Bailey (West Virginia), Markus Wheaton (Oregon State), and Robert Woods (USC) also didn't make Mayock's cut. It's worth noting that Mayock said his "jaw dropped" when recently watching Patterson's game tape. Allen is a possession/run-after-catch threat ala Miles Austin. Williams is a vertical flier. Austin is a human joystick in the slot. Patton has generated comparisons to Reggie Wayne.

Default Re: Texans may go WR in 1st.

Russ Lande of NFP has 5 WRs coming off the board before the Texans pick:

Quote:
6. Cleveland Browns: Keenan Allen, WR, California, Junior: With young talent like Trent Richardson, Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron on the roster, the Browns need to get more weapons if Brandon Weeden is going to succeed in Coach Chudzinski’s downfield passing attack. Allen reminds us a ton of Bengals’ receiver AJ Green and could provide the big play ability and security blanket for Brandon Weeden that AJ Green does for Andy Dalton.

12. Miami Dolphins: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee, Junior: After trading Brandon Marshall last off-season the Dolphins lacked a top shelf receiver despite the emergence of Brian Hartline. This leads them to select Patterson who reminds many around the league of Julio Jones and will provide Ryan Tannehill a big play target who can open up the Dolphins’ passing attack.

21. Cincinnati Bengals: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech, Senior: A.J. Green has developed into a premier receiver, but the Bengals need to find other weapons for Andy Dalton to throw to if their offense is going to take the next step. Patton has rare acceleration and speed for a 6’0 receiver and after his display at the Senior Bowl I do not think anyone questions his hands and ability to play at a high level in the NFL.

22. St. Louis Rams (From Washington): Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia, Senior: By claiming receiver Titus Young the Rams showed they are going to take risks in order to find some weapons for Sam Bradford to throw to. That leads me to believe they would be willing to gamble on Austin who has all talent to be a game changing receiver along the lines of DeSean Jackson, but at under 5’9 lacks the height that most NFL teams want in a first round receiver.

25. Seattle Seahawks: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor, Senior: After Russell Wilson’s incredible rookie season, the Seahawks make a wise move by providing him with another weapon so that he can continue to develop. Williams combination of height and playing speed is tough to find and could help the Seahawks’ offense by taking the top off the defense.

Quinton Patton really impresses here versus A&M:

*21 receptions for 233 yards and four TDs*

Reminds me a bit of a guy we have on our team now. Wish he was taller.

I bet he's off the board before we pick.

Wow! If this is what happens the Texans are screwed getting a WR in the 1st. That's pretty much the whole list of the ones that are good. But, I really can't see this happening. I could see maybe the Fins, Rams, and Hawks going WR in the 1st, but remember, at this point in time, this draft doesn't have the big star impact WR, like AJ, Megatron, Green, or Julio Jones. It has a lot of solid WR's that could develop into some good ones. So the value at WR may be in the 2nd through 4th rounds and some of those teams may wait until the 2nd or 3rd round instead of reaching in the 1st. I can't see the Browns taking a WR at #6 when the value isn't there. They could trade down if they find a partner.

If the draft fell like this, I'd have no trouble taking DeAndre Hopkins in the 1st at #27.
