Underwear Olympics lol. I like that one.

Heh, joking aside, very funny and good article. I have a few receivers I like but I doubt they'll get picked because the Texans have came out of left field with some of their choices. Hopefully, they will surprise us all and actually pick someone we actually would like to see on the roster instead of pulling someone from a small college (Lane College anyone?) or someone who hasn't played for an entire season. Most mocks lately seem to have us grabbing Hopkins out of Clemson.

Walter is gone but we still needed a WR last draft. Mario out Mercilus in. Now Barwin out and we draft OLB with first pick and go WR later. History repeats.

Why not go with Kenny Stills if you like speed; his 4.38 is only .04 behind Swope.

His 20SS is better than Swope 4.13 to 4.25

I can't tell you how many times Landry Jones under threw him when I put on the tapes.

In some other games, I watch the CB giving him between 7-10 yard cushions.
In other instances when they play man-up, the safety is right there to help over the top.

What I like about Stills and Stedman Bailey is that they run good routes.
Along the side line, they work to give the QB room to throw (and Jones still couldn't do it.)

Stills is probably the best receiver prospect who tries to keep both feet in bound the most efficiently the last couple of years, bar none.

Posey was picked to be Walter's replacement/upgrade: a big, strong guy who can block and who has good hands.

Martin was picked to be the slot guy we've never really had. Consider him the David Anderson upgrade.

Neither of those guys were picked to be AJ's successor and neither of them will be.

And when you put Stills in the slot close to AJ; let AJ run a post route while Stills run the wheel route; Somebody is going to get open.
Guy runs a great wheel route with his speed.

Andre Johnson types aren't found in the 3rd or 4th round very often.

Here's the sentence from Texans_Chick's blog that makes me think the Texans won't go WR in the 1st:

Quote:
In addition, I think the Texans have enough belief in their offensive system to not think they have to draft a wide receiver in the low first.
Andre Johnson is under contract for 4 more seasons. I don't think the Texans see the necessity of finding his future replacement in this draft. I think they are looking for a solid #2 WR, and probably think they can find one @ #58. Maybe so. There are enough concerns on both sides of the ball to make me feel that WR is not a lock with that 1st pick.

I'm hoping the Texans pick up Cordell Robinson from SFA. They were one of two teams interested in him at SFA's pro day last week.

Robinson reminds me a lot of Andre Johnson. The same physical build, the same clutch catches over/around defenders, and he's not a vocal guy but prefers to lead by example on the field. I think they could really groom this kid with A.J. as his mentor.

Cordell Roberson is a likely UDFA pickup, according to Gil Brandt. Supposedly, 23 NFL teams were represented at the SFA pro day. The Texans might have some competition for Roberson.
