I'm a big fan of Keenan Allen. Produced at Cal despite horrible QB play.

Should feel right at home with Schaub throwing him the ball.....

Default Re: Texans to go WR heavy in Draft

I would not be surprised if HOU drafted a top rated TE early in the Draft. A stud TE like Jason Witten - Jimmy Graham - Tony Gonzalez - or Rob Gronkowski could due as much if not more for this particular offense then a #2 WR.


I would like to see Vance McDonald Rice on this team I am not sure what round he projects too.

Default Re: Texans to go WR heavy in Draft

very deep WR class this year, as you can see by all the different favorites at our first pick. i for one am hoping to see Justin Hunter. good size (6'4", 200lbs), speed (4.41), i loved what i saw with his hands, and solid production last season (73rec for 1083yds and 9td's).

Are you concerned about his knee injury? Postponed participating combine then delayed proday from March 14 to April. If unable to run I see him dropping even more. We need to get WR right even if it is a career #2 guy rather than eventual replacement for Johnson.

Default Re: Texans to go WR heavy in Draft

As much as I'd love a Tavon Austin or Hunter in the 1st I'm seeing Jarvis Jones falling to us because of his slow 40. I don't care what that guy ran, when I watched him play he was always all over the field. Special talent all around so if he's there I just don't see how we can pass on him. Think he can make a Suggs like impact.

Default Re: Texans to go WR heavy in Draft

My mind must be playing dyslexic games with me. I could have sworn the thread said the Texans to go heavy WR in draft.

I can just picture a 290 lb. WR lining up opposite Andre.

Not arguing but to be accurate he dropped 14 lbs to 196 to hit the 4.41. I'd rather see him at 210 and 4.5 in NFL

DE only due to poor hip swivle and probably not a 3-4 OLB. IMO, we cannot spend a first on DE. Needs to bulk up to play DE.

I'll take 3 receivers in this draft. A fast one, a quick one, and a big one.

I'll even take a sleeper later on if he's still there.

Let's go heavy on receivers like the thread title said.

You and I are spot on with that issue as well...hell I started a safety thread in the draft forum. Maybe a better example would be after signing lechler we'd get a report from espn like, "The Texans no longer consider punter a high area of need in the draft..."?

I actually think the Reed signing will hurt us in a way. We'll undervalue the safety position now despite all the 3 safety sets and wait to get one later...

Default Re: Texans to go WR heavy in Draft

At the beginning of the offseason I was against taking more than 1 WR. But with AJ getting up there in age and no heir apparent out of there I am ready to see us get this position right. Throw as many young talented bodies into the competition as possible and see who emerges as AJ's apprentice.

Default Re: Texans to go WR heavy in Draft

That 'Ramses' guy from NY is available if im not mistaken. probably cheap, plus dude is really tall and got good hands from what I can remember.

While I completely agree with the idea of selecting a WR in the draft, if an ILB/OLB is rated significantly higher you still go best available in the early rounds. I toyed with the notion of taking the WR in R1, but the team still has holes and cant really get selective like that IMO.

1st rounder gets you Victor Cruz probably. Will there be anything better than him in the 20's? Long shot, but the homerun that could hold down the position for years to come, and you cross that contract bridge when you get there next year, he's locked up for like 3 MILL, while underpaid, if patient and has yet another good year you figure it out in 2014. Not sure what a first round tender is nowadays but im sure its around that ballpark anyways. Lose him get a supplemental the next year, you still draft a project in the later rounds and take a legitimate shot at the Super Bowl for 1 good year, caution to the wind F the future til we get there.

And then I woke up.
