    Cincinnati had one of their best years in program history and Mardy was a huge part of it.

    I know we are pretty set at WR, but if the kid is there in the 2nd-3rd round I would take him. Let Jacoby focus on being a full-time WR and let Mardy handle PR duties, plus he would be an upgrade over Andre Davis IMO. It also makes me nervous how much we rely on AJ, especially this past year since we had no running game. Jacoby made progress, but the question is still out there if he can be a reliable WR/PR.

    He messed up early on in his college career, but worked multiple jobs just so he could pay to take classes and earn his scholarship back, that says a lot about the guy's work ethic. I think he will boost the competition behind AJ and make Jacoby a little more determined.

    I know there are bigger needs, but every team can use more playmakers.

    What say you?

    Dude is electric no doubt. And I agree that it will take a high pick to get him, but I would rather see the Texans use those picks in the trenches, or on defense.

    Yeah, guess I am in that sexy pick stage before the draft.

    Absolutely 100% don't want to use a 2nd or 3rd on a receiver. I think there are some WRs who I'd love if we could get them in the fifth round but we have too many weak spots to use a high pick on a WR/KR

    I would be ok with a high draft pick WR. We do need a guy to take pressure of AJ and OD. JJ is inconsistant and Walter may or may not come back. AD is a waste of space, only good at gunner. WR is a need for us this year, me thinks.
