Default Texans need to get best available receiver next season....

Texans need to get best available receiver next season .....either through the NFL draft or free agency.
I reallly think it is time to look ahead. Andre Johnson is not getting any younger. He is going to be pushing 30 sometime soon. His health is starting to become a issue.
We need to bring someone else in to learn under him while Andre is still on this team to become his apprentice......Andre is the Master......(Star Wars reference)

Jacoby is a good punt returner....but he will never be that playmaker at the wide receiver..plain and simple.....

I say we move up in the draft and do it like Atlanta did it last year with Julio Jones......it should be our number one priority next year.......

yep. Andre turned 30 this year. I think he's got a few great years left in his tank, but I would have no problem in drafting his successor. Jacoby is not it.

It would suck if it took the whole draft to do it but getting a guy like Blackmon on the team would be enormous.

Default Re: Texans need to get best available receiver next season....

I thought about a "Julio Jones" type of trade on draft night, but that MIGHT be too many picks.

We'll see. However, I expect 'em to make a play for one. WR is so deep, we might be able to draft one in the 2nd round, after getting another position if need be in round 1.

Think of these WRs:

Justin Blackmon
Kendall Wright
Ryan Broyles (ou still sucks)
Michael Floyd
Alshon Jeffery
Reuben Randle
Nick Toon
Jeff Fuller
Dwight Jones
Mohamed Sanu

All could be in the draft

Default Re: Texans need to get best available receiver next season....

As good as last years draft was I hope we don't trade away most of our draft for any player at any position. Our building through the draft and not over spending for any one player is just starting to pay off, why change now?

We do need a reciever though, hope we draft one sooner rather than later.

Agreed completely.

This draft is going to be a really good WR draft. Not only would I not be opposed to, but I would advocate for hedging our bet and drafting a couple of WR in the early rounds of the draft.

Also, remember that we will be getting Lestar Jean back next year, which should help.

Default Re: Texans need to get best available receiver next season....

Last year was one of the best ever for WRs. But I wouldn't panic if we didn't get one in the first round. The cowpatties and the colts, just to name two, have found excellent WRs as late as the fourth round. We just need to alert the scouts that that's a primary position to focus on this draft. Good FA WRs might be too high to get. If we can only be as lucky with offense this year, as we were with defense last year, we will get a good one.

Our first round will bring us a very good player without having to trade up. We can also land WRs later if we choose to draft two.

Kendall Wright (my guy) 101 receptions 1,572 15.6 avg (Baylor plays Washington Dec 29th Thurs on ESPN 8 Central. Gives a chance to see NT Alameda Ta'Amu also.

Dwight Jones 79 for 1119 14.2 avg

Marvin McNutt 78 1269 16.3
Jordan White 127 1646 13.0

I'd draft a mid round guy but hopefully there is a FA that can make an impact. Can't really trust rookie WRs.

I really hope the Texans spend a first round pick on a WR. Then take another in the mid-rounds. Maybe Jacoby can get traded.

Default Re: Texans need to get best available receiver next season....

I hope we get one WR in free agency and in the draft. We have to address it and WRs are somewhat iffy when drafted, so it would be best to get a mix. Would love to get a midlevel guy like Harry Douglas for the slot or Robert Meachem as a #2. I would like to aim higher, but I don't think we'll have the cap space to go after Stevie Johnson, Vincent Jackson or Dwayne Bowe.

The Texans don't need to blindly lock onto a position in this draft. WR should be upgraded this off-season, but if a better player available in the first round the Texans are not that kind of needy at WR.

Default Re: Texans need to get best available receiver next season....

I think the Texans could use their first round pick on any number of positions I would not mind seeing them address WR in the first but I wouldn't trade multiple picks to move up and get anyone not named Justin Blackmon. I'd love to see us strengthen the offensive line or nose tackle position and would not have a problem choosing the highest rated guy from one of those positions either.

Default Re: Texans need to get best available receiver next season....

I'd say the 2nd round is a good time to get a wide out. I'd take a rush end / OLB in the first again if someone is available. Mario's return to this team due to salary cap concerns probably limits our ability to resign him. I'd rather have Foster and get another OLB rush end. I like Mario, but I don't think we can afford his contract.

Wait!! What??? Jacoby Jones isn't "all that?"

I seem to remember some folks stoked about the Texans re-signing him to be a number "2" with Walter in the slot..

Personally, I have gotten a little bit more comfortable with him returning punts, but I would be lying if I said that I don't hold my breath a little.

will the texans be able to afford a high$ FA wr? they will pick in the mid twenties of first round so maybe third-fourth best wr available. then comes the scouting of who is the third-fourth best wr available.
