Default taking a wide receiver in the draft?

Now that the Team has lost both gaffney and bradford(thank god), we are really short on wide receivers. i no we made an attempt at givens, and we have made an offer to walter, but we have to wait on the bengals for that. On our current roster, we only have three receivers that i would say ready to play, Johnson, mathis and armstrong.

Since the amount of free agent wide receivers is dwindling, do you think we would take a receiver earlier in the draft then we woulda before, say somewere in the 3rd or maybe 4th round?

This is one of the WORST WR drafts in a long time. Even the guys projected to go in the first round are questionable....

it would really help to have two 2nds, not sure if Moss will still be there @ the top of the 3rd rd. but we need someone who is a polished route runner with break away speed and big play ability to stretch the field, reminds me alot of his brother-

moss was the guy i had in mind. But not sure he will last that long. If he was somehow still there toward the 20's in the 2nd round, would you trade up to get him.

An i agree, this is one of the worst drafts of wr in quite a while.

we should take a receiver in the draft but not with our first 2 picks. its safe to say that reggie is #1, but after that we'll probably get o-lineman. maybe mangold, eric winston, whoever is the best available at that pick is who we should get because as much as we need a #2 receiver, we need o-lineman more.

i agree, but you have to wonder if Kubiak will be anything like shannahan as a coach. correct me if im wrong but didnt shannahan not take many high round olinemen.

I believe Moss is projected to be a mid to late 1st rounder, but then again I just looked at several draft boards and maybe he is not? Would not mind seeing this guy go at #33 (our second rounder.)

Well if the Texans are going to draft Bush, then the Texans need to go D practically the rest of the draft. They probably should use their second 3rd round pick for a WR. I keep hoping they trade the pick, it's what would be best, overall, for the team...JM

This team really needs a #2 receiver. I see us bringing in someone for cheap or drafting someone with a 3rd-5th round selection. This might be one position we just have to realize we cannot resolve sufficiently this season.

OK, what's more important, upgrading what we have at #2 WR or
upgrading TE ? I think we should concentrate on acquiring a TE this year and
try to develope the WRs we have, especially Mathis. And if we do in fact
draft Bush, that will represent a significant increase in our pass receiving corps.

there is always the trade deadline, and maybe there will be a WR on the block, and maybe by that time, babin vs peek DE fight will be done and we will know who is better and let one of them go

Here are my fav WR options via Draft:

Greg Jennings WMich. 5'11 195 4.52

-Possible 4th or 5th rounder

Strengths: He has dominated his level of play as a go-to-receiver and punt return specialist. He is quicker than fast. Has adequate-to-good speed. Shows a little bit of a second gear when he hits daylight. He shows excellent body control, balance and COD skills. Is a sharp route runner who gets in and out of his breaks very quickly. Knows how to separate and also has a very good feel for finding soft spots in zone. He's a threat after the catch. Shows some wiggle in space and will make defenders miss. Also has very good vision as a runner and will make the right cut at the right time.

Hank Baskett UNM 6'3 219 4.59

-Possible late 2nd or 3rd rounder

Strengths: Is a big, physical WR prospect. Has good size and impressively built. Is aggressive and knows how to use his body to his advantage. Will overpower smaller DB's at the LOS when working vs. press coverage. He is a huge target and will shields defenders on intermediate routes. Possesses outstanding leaping ability and is a huge mismatch on jump balls. Has great potential as a matchup problem in the red zone in the NFL. He is aggressive and strong in traffic. His hands are big and soft. Shows the ability to pluck on the run and make the tough catch in traffic. Will make the acrobatic catch and keep his feet in along the sideline. He runs hard after the catch and will break some tackles. Has great size, toughness, technique and strength as a run blocker. Is competitive and tough. Coaches rave about his intangibles, especially his leadership, character and work ethic.

Todd Watkins BYU 6'2 185 4.4

- 3rd or 4th rounder

Strengths: A tall receiver with blazing speed. A true vertical threat with good height, arm length and leaping ability. He has the initial burst and top-end speed to simply run by defenders in man-coverage. Shows a second gear when tracking down the deep ball. Will win many jump balls and is a huge weapon in the red zone. Has big hands and does a good job of catching over his head. Shows very good body control and awareness along the sideline. He isn't overly elusive but he is still a threat after the catch because of his ability to run away from defenders. If he finds a crease or gets an angle in the open field, he's gone.
****************************

The key will be finding that solid WR that is under other teams radar. I hope Kubiak can find that WR.

I don't know....between him, Brad Smith and Michael Robinson, I'd rather take Brad Smith as a prospect in the late rounds.

I think the Texans don't need another rookie WR that have to learn his way through, but I'll tell you who they need and would be a great addition to the Texans offense, Keyshawn Johnson. As ya'll heard by now, the Cowboys wavied Keyshawn Wednesday for the bonus money they suppose to offer him. Have Keyshawn & Andre?! The Johnson & Johnson duo.

If we're going to draft a WR, which I don't think we will, I like Jonathan Orr out of Wisconsinon. He's big, and has good speed, and I'm willing ot bet he can block.

Wow, and you think Keyshawn will keep his mouth shut? He is right there with TO, without the talent!

The Texans need to build the WR corps through the draft, FA sucks!! Plus Kubiak can bring in a guy that fits his offense.

There really aren't any WRs worthy of a 1st rd selection, but the 3rd - 4th rd talent value is definately there! THat is where most of the WRs will be drafted in 06.
