Default Are the Texans targeting Justin Hunter?

Found a mock-draft on WalterFootball, where they selected Tennessee WR Justin Hunter.
http://www.walterfootball.com/draft2013_1.php

Most mock-drafts I have seen have Houston selecting a wide receiver in the first round, but this one had a link to an interesting article about Justin Hunter on their rumour mill.

Quote:
WalterFootall.com spoke with some scouts, including one from a receiver-needy team picking in the back half of the top 32. All believe that Hunter is likely to go in the first round. They said the Combine really helped Hunter with positive reports from his medical check and an excellent 40-yard dash time of 4.44 seconds.
Quote:
Scouts told WalterFootball.com that they love the upside of Hunter. He has the size to work in the short to intermediate part of the field and speed to get vertical. They like his run-after-the-catch ability as well as his combination of size and speed. Hunter hasn't received a lot of first-round buzz, but one team in the mid 20s said it would be ecstatic if he was on the board for its pick.
I'm pretty sure the writer is talking about the Texans. He mentions the scout twice in the article. Lots of rumours spread this time of year, though.

I won't believe 99% of rumors is credited to insiders from teams, from just after the Combine until draft day.

With the Texans, who knows at 27. The safe bet is to get a WR, but I can see them getting a LB, OL help, etc. with the pick as well. Hell, it could be a TE for all I know.

I've spent almost every draft trying to guess and pick who would be drafted by the Texans, and almost every time I seem to be wrong. Way wrong. Basically, I've just learned my lesson to not be surprised when the Texans pick gets announced and trust the front office.

My source told me that the Texans are targeting RB Eddie Lacy in the first.
If he's not there, they will take a Kicker.

Asidd's buddy sure talks a lot. He told me the Texans were targeting a center in the first.

(We'd better be looking at Hunter!)

He suffered an ACL in 2011. He is 6'4" 196#. He is built like a walking stick.



If he doesn't add significant weight/bulk especially in his lower extremities (quads/hammies) to protect his knees.........NFL D's will likely offer to help him into bed........a hospital bed.........soon and often.

I heard they are targeting a Long Snapper, but they will go BPA and that will probably end up being Punt Team Gunner.
