Default CBS Sportsline article on Texans Draft needs

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/story/11543464

The thing that caught my eye was the diss on Walter, I think he is a fine #2 WR myself.

I would love to see the number of #2 receivers that put up Walter's #s the last two seasons...

I don't think he was dissing Walter..

Quote:
I think adding a big-play receiver to go with Johnson would be tempting.
I agree with him. If Michael Crabtree or even Maclin were sitting in our laps it'd be pretty tempting to add another potential big play reciever. I like Walter too and if we're gonna look for possible stud recievers I'd rather it be later in the draft after some major defensive concerns have been adressed.

Also, I agree with him that DB is our biggest need.

Walter doesn't get his props as a good #2 WR because......

1. He is a Texan.

2. We haven't made the playoffs.

3. He is white.

Not many people knew much about Welker when he was a dolphin either.

No... just the 1st 2 & b/c he's not a flashy burner type. He's just plain.....effective, but plain.

Exactly. In a use of ESPN's favorite and extremely overused word, he's not a "sexy" WR. He does the tough stuff, but doesn't catch the 50 yd TD's or run all around the field. He's an effective WR, but he isn't the "playmaker" that all these analyst types fall in love with.

I don't know too many "plain" #2 receivers who put up 900 receiving yards at 15 yards a catch and 8 TDs last season.

The guy is "underrated".....not "plain". I have no problem with him lining up opposite Andre. He's also a complete WR, because he's one of the best run blockers on the team.

The guy had the exact same number of 40+ yard catches as Andre Johnson and just one less than Larry Fitzgerald last season....and he also had a higher YPC average than both of them. The guy just gets open down field. He's got 1700 receiving yards and 12 TDs since he was named the starter at the #2 position two seasons ago, which puts him right at the top at that position.

My dad used to say that if a white dude can play WR he must be fast, tough, or have great hands so he should always have a spot on the team. Walter is all 3. I seriously doubt that is why he doesn't get much props.

I think it has more to do with the fact he doesn't score TO type TDs and he's a team first guy that is quiet about his productive work.

As for Welker...Many Longhorn fans knew about that guy.

He had one against Green Bay and one against Baltimore. Your second sentence is what I love about Walter. Other teams think the same thing and they soon find out that he's quite the play maker.

enjoy one of my favorite youtube videos...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71e1WmV9UzI&fmt=18

Sorry, peeps......Walter has his position locked down and isn't going anywhere...he's one of the best at his position. EXTREMELY UNDERRATED.

The "great white hope" runs wild in opposing team's nightmares. LOL.

The Bengals had a great WR core that the didn't even know about. Walter is the best pick up this team has ever made.

Shh! repeat after me Walter is slow and can't catch the ball. Walter is.. probably not under rated by opposing DBs.

Walter is a good #2, and WR is low our list of needs. He's not well known because he is the #2 WR for the Texans. It's not because he's white. What's his face that played #3 WR for the Colts a few years back was all over the media, and he was white and a #3 WR. The difference is that he played for the Colts, and they were winning a lot.

Great video....must spread rep....yada, yada.

That video showcases the skills the KW brings to the table. He is a very solid number 2 and very underrated, the production speaks for itself.

Stokley. To bad he got cut and disappeared. I think he's on the Broncos now.

I think he's a fantastic #2 WR and I'm insulted that all these "analysts" think we need an upgrade over him. He brings everything to the table that you would want out of a #2 WR.

Brandon Stokley....totally forgot about that guy, man that offense was dangerous with him. (I used to hate that guy...I totally forgot about him) He was Welker, before Welker. He played the year Peyton broke the TD record and then Brady got Welker and broke Peyton's TD record, so go figure. Both were awesome slot receivers, hopefully David Anderson can grow into that kinda receiver. (Stokley and Welker)

I agree with him about the TE depth though. I'm hoping we can get a good TE in this draft.
