If they do sign another veteran I think it would just be to set a bar for the young guns to jump, much like they signed Graham for Bullock to beat out.

Don't see KW getting cut as long as Kubiak is the coach of this team.

Not gonna' happen, gb.

He's going to get starstruck when he steps onto the field and is surrounded by guys who are way more mature and self-disciplined than he is right now.

He will be lucky to make it as the final WR on the roster. And no way would Jean fall all the way to WR5.

Just my opinion, of course.

meh....I don't care who catches the ball as long as somebody does. But our WR core does need an upgrade over last year, hopefully some of these new guys are the upgrade.

I remember someone from the Texans saying it would have been insulting to ask Winston to take a pay cut, so they just cut him knowing that he'll be able to get his money somewhere else.

Default Re: 2012 WR depth chart

If Dwight Jones shows anything in the preseason, there is no way we can safely stash him on the practice squad. The only thing holding him back in the draft was doubt about his maturity. He has the tools to be a solid pro receiver and somebody will take a chance on him if we don't protect him.

It won't surprise me if we carry six wide receivers.

But the flexibility in situations/matchups they have now are far more interesting for me. 2 WR sets, probably going to be AJ and KW, maybe sticking Posey or Jean in for Walter. 3 Wide KW can play slot and be effective while maximizing his blocking. I think Martin is going to make an impact catching over the middle and running but he might also see time flanking out wide in these sets. Idk much about Posey's slot potential but I think he'll be decent outside, the guy I'm really looking for to be #2 is Jean though. One thing for sure is the Texans definitely have the tools to go 4 wide and spread teams out. AJ and Martin on one side, Posey and Jean on the other. I think they lacked that ability last season.
When did we sign "duh"??

Default Re: 2012 WR depth chart

Sizing up the Texans wide receiver battles -- Lance Zierlein

WR3 - Because this position figures to be played by a player who can play in the slot, rookie fourth rounder Keshawn Martin would appear to be the favorite for this role. Martin has outstanding quickness off the line of scrimmage and can handle the punt return duties as well. In other words, he would be taking over Jacoby Jones’ former role. Even with Jerome Mathis and Andre Davis on the squad during Jones’ rookie year, Jacoby still had 15 catches and 30 punt returns so Gary Kubiak won’t be afraid to play Martin in that role as a rookie.

WR4 – DeVier Posey has the physical makeup to eventually take over for Kevin Walter, but there is still a chance that Posey could play outside during 3-WR sets and bump Walter down inside to the slot where he could also function as a plus blocker if the Texans wanted to run out of that set. Posey has good quickness for a man his size so the Texans might look to him to be their WR3 in the 3-WR sets. With very little football played last year, I’m just curious if Posey will brought along a little more slowly this year. We’ll see how he looks in camp.

The Battle for WR5 – There will be a number of guys fighting for this spot and there is a chance that the winner of the battle may not be on the roster yet. With two rookies who are a lock to make the team, Kubiak might opt for a wide receiver with NFL experience to fill out his depth chart.

Lestar Jean - Last preseason, Jean was in a serious battle for one of the WR positions and had a very good chance of landing it until he was lost for the year with a shoulder injury. While Jean is the favorite headed into camp since he has more familiarity with Kubiak’s offense and since Kubiak singled him out last year for his play, he will be battling all of the other WRs in camp for one WR spot unless Kubiak decides to keep six which is unlikely. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that Jean could end up being the backup for Kevin Walter or Andre Johnson this year.

Jeff Maehl - Don’t forget that while Jean was a preseason star last year, Maehl was rock-solid in camp and got actual game action last year. Maehl can play on special teams which will certainly help his chances, but if he’s viewed as only a slot WR, he might end up having a difficult time beating out Keshawn Martin for that slot spot. In that case, Maehl has to prove himself invaluable on special teams to have a shot to make the active roster.

Juaquin Iglesias - Iglesias was a 3rd round pick by the Chicago Bears in 2009, but like several other Oklahoma WRs (Mark Bradley, Mark Clayton, Travis Wilson and Malcolm Kelly), he never lived up to the hype and is now tagged with “journeyman” status already in his career. Iglesias isn’t going to wow anyone with his athleticism so he will have a hard time wowing the coaching staff with what should be limited snaps in camp.

Jerrell Jackson, (UFA – Missouri) - Very interesting prospect from Davis High School here in Houston. Jackson has off-the-chart athleticism (he broad jumped 10’7 and had a 41″ vertical at the Combine) which could potential cause some flash moments out on the practice field during limited reps. Jackson had nowhere near the production that would be expected from his brand of athleticism, but he’s still an interesting developmental prospect.

Dwight Jones (UFA – North Carolina) - Jones would have been a 4th round draft pick if he hadn’t been hit so hard by character concerns that, quite frankly, were well-earned. One person with personal knowledge of Jones called him “entitled”, “lazy” and “a turd who doesn’t have the work ethic to make it in the league”. I have no doubt that those things are true. Jones is 6’3/230, runs in the 4.5s and was productive in college. You don’t go undrafted with those credentials unless you deserved it. With all of that said, I know what I saw when I studied him pre-draft. He’s a big-bodied WR who isn’t afraid to go over the middle and who has the ability to make plays down the field. Jones has a problem with drops which may do him in, but he’s a much better prospect heading into camp than Terrence Toliver was last year.

Mario Louis (UFA – Grambling State) - Sorry, don’t have anything for you on Mario Louis.
