    What's the deal with this kid? I haven't watch any of his highlights/films, but how come people are picking him over Alshon Jefferey, Kendall Wright, and Michael Floyd, etc(if they're all still there at the 26th pick)?

    To be honest, I am not sure. I havent gotten into draft mode, but I assume people will associate him with Kenny Britt who came out of Rutgers 2 years back. I am sure the year round draft guru's can help you out.

    FWIW, I have watched Sanu's games and am not overly impressed. He is mid second round on my board and reminds me of Jeff Fuller A&M. I think he would be a solid #2 but not someone to groom to replace AJ although Kirksey might work wonders. Wright is the real deal and unfortunately prob gone #26. I want a dynamic player who can possibly change the game on any play. 3 WRs in this draft match that criteria as of now; Blackmon, Wright and Jordan White. Broyles could be close depending on his health from recent surgery.

    I don't know about mid second round but his youtube/highlight reel is worth watching.
    You tell me. He sounds like a dynamic #2 option to me. Only thing is lack of timed speed but this is definitely one of those lines draftniks draw...workout, no pads, on a track with no one trying to hit you speed versus in the game, pads on, hits coming speed. He's fast, either way. This would be a very, very good pick on the Texans part. He or Peter Konz are my favorites right now.

    6'2'' 215 4.57-40 via cbssports.com

    He's about the same size as AJ and has a few very similar qualities. Dangerous after the catch. Selfless player. Big target.

    Anquan Boldin lacks timed speed as well but he manages to be very effective. I'm not insinuating Sanu will turn out like Boldin, just that a fast 40 isnt everything.

    I like Anquan Boldin. But I do not believe he is a game changer..... not really a #1.

    1b...... maybe. I'd love to have him opposite Aj, but he could never replace Aj, Reggie Wayne, Megatron, Chad Johnson (not OchoCinco), etc..

    Late first rounder........ where we're looking to draft, you're right, we should consider him.

    I agree with your take Boldin. I was just using him as an example of a slower yet effective WR. I believe Anquan ran a 4.7 at the combine, which is absolutely pedestrian. Personally, I'm hoping Wight falls but I'm not holding out hope.

    I'd have no problem with Mohamed Sanu in the 1st round if the Texans decide he's the best for us and he's available. I'd personally rather have Dwight Jones in the 1st but either one will help this team alot.

    That's actually a good comparison and would be precisely what they need. An elite possession receiver. I actually thought about this, get him and a slot guy, you could move Kevin Walter into a hybrid kind of TE role since he's basically a TE in a WR body. That would make Dreesen leaving easier to handle.

    I keep hearing that a big WR would improve RZ efficiency, but we have big WR's....

    In fact...we haven't had many small or average height receivers that get playing time on a regular basis. We don't throw fades to Andre...We don't throw them to Walter or Jacoby...

    I think that the QB's need to improve on their RZ passing...

    I think a bigger TE might help, we have somewhat average to below average sized TEs....

    Passing in the redzone is definitely a problem though. The fade route isn't in the cupboard though, how many times have you seen them be single covered (anywhere on the field, let alone at the end) and the play simply wasn't designed to go that way. Schaub isn't especially guilty of this but Yates got himself in trouble staring down AJ.

    My preference in RZ is not the pass, to anyone.

    Remember that guy who played receiver for SF a while back? I think his name was Rice or something like that. Scouts were worried about his timed speed, too.

    Right?


    I heard that Rutgers coaching staff was going to be the new staff for Tampa Bay, any chance they need a receiver to pair with their young QB Freeman?

    This does not bode well for Sanu to the Texans IMO....

    That's what I'm hoping...

    I hope that those bigger receivers go ahead of Wright so we can take him with our pick.

    My only worry though is that he will look good at the combine and test well and some team is going to take him before we pick.

    I'd still be happy with one of those other recievers, but Wright would be tremendous for us. He's a buzz saw as a receiver. I haven't heard about any character concerns...Seems like a hard worker...I think he fits the Texans mold perfectly...
