    Guess we have a new opening in our depth chart at wide receiver.:hurrah:
    [​IMG]
    What are we left with?

    #1 - Andre Johnson, Lestar Jean
    #2 - Kevin Walter, DeVier Posey
    #3 - Jeff Maehl, Keshawn Martin

    I think Jean is ready to step into the role of backup for AJ given what we watched in the preseason last year. Having seen so little of Posey as a senior I have no idea if he's ready to play. We don't have a veteran for the slot...will Martin be ready to play or is Maehl the logical choice? Could Posey take the spot as backup to AJ? Could one or more of the UDFAs (Jerrell Jackson, Dwight Jones, Mario Louis) muscle their way up the depth chart?

    Many of the mock analysts (irony intended) were critical of the Texans' choice of receivers...will they be proven wrong and by whom?

    I think most people had already moved jacoby down to 4 or 5 and some had just assumed he wouldn't be here regardless....like me.

    LWR 80 JOHNSON, ANDRE - 18 Jean, Lestar - 19 Iglesias, Juaquin

    RWR 83 WALTER, KEVIN - 00 Posey, DeVier - 00 Martin, Keshawn - 15 Maehl, Jeff - 16 Holliday, Trindon

    UDFA: Mario Louis, Dwight Jones


    LeStar is the guy to watch. He was impressive before the injury.

    I think Lester will eventually become a Pro Bowl WR. He has the size and the speed, i would love to see him and AJ on the field next season.

    Holliday and Iglesias are probably the odd men out. Maehl always seems on the cusp of coming in and fighting for a spot, but I think we continues to be the odd man out.

    We stash at least one of our UDFA WRs on the PS and I'd give Jones (Dwight) a chance at making the team if he can put it together.

    With Jacoby leaving, Walter becomes all the more important, if only for veteran leadership. Otherwise it'd be Andre and a bunch of first or second year players.

    LestAr. With an A. Lestar.

    I have a feeling this is going to be like Kevin Walters.

    Maehl was on the PS most of last year. He didn't look nearly as good in pre-season as Jean did. But when we dropped Mason, we promoted Maehl to the 53 man roster. I think he played some ST and maybe got on the field a couple of times. I don't recall him catching anything.

    I expect him to make the squad.

    Andre
    Kevin
    DeVier
    Keshawn

    Those are my first four. Not sure if we're carrying 5 or 6 WRs, most likely five unless proven otherwise. If 5, I think Dwight will make it. If 6, I think Lestar will make the 6th spot.

    a lot of this will be based on production in pre season. We all saw what Lestar did last pre season. Based on that and his size i feel he will be our #2 next season !

    Has Jean become the newest Tony Hollings? Flashed in preseason, got everyone's expeditions up, and...that's it.

    Mmmm, don't know about having rooks as the 3 and 4 options unless they dominate TC. I believe Jean has the inside track which is kind of unsettling.

    The fans have what they wanted Jacoby out of town. Now, there are 5 dudes battling for 3 rosters who have never caught a ball in a real NFL game. Might work out, but "hope is not a plan."

    I'll be honest, I don't see anyone passing up Kevin Walter for the #2 spot, and if anyone does, I'd put my money on DeVier Posey.

    Now, about Lestar Jean, I really don't remember much of last preseason except Bryan Braman getting 4 sacks on the NY Jets and us beating the NO Saints. That's it. Whatever he did in preseason, was against rookies and crappy players playing for the last spots, because he didn't start over Dre, Kevin, or Jacoby in preseason, I know that much.

    I'm not saying he doesn't have any talents, or he can't be the #2 WR, which is highly unlikely, I'm saying that he has to prove that he can do it against real players and he has to do it again. His competition just got much better this offseason, so there's no guarantee. Especially since he's coming off an season-ending shoulder injury. I just think Dwight has more talents than Jean, and DeVier is most likely making the team since he was a 2nd pick, and Keshawn Martin was picked in the 4th round.

    It's a mix of French and English.
    It means A Star or The Star.
    I hope he's one, LOL!

    ok so why would u put the rookies ahead of him, atleast he did do it in the NFL even though it was pre season, the rookies havent dont it yet so, that argument in bold isnt a very good one.

    I've watched alot of Lestars college plays and he has some really good hands, and can run through people. Watch and you will see a lot of the same qualitys that another WR on the team has.

    I'm not saying the other guys dont have a shot and he is automatic, but i think he has just as good of a chance as any of the other guys !
