    From Evan Silva per Mort

    @evansilva ESPZn's Chris Mortensen on #Texans: "I assure you they'll add a WR or two in this draft. Somebody that can run & run fast. Highest priority."

    Is that a fact, or just rumor?

    Just kidding!
    Surely, we all expect that they will draft at least one receiver - unless we pull out a trade or something.

    That's why we need to replace them... So we can cut them again, LOl.

    Not me. I think WR is very deep this year.

    Stole the words right out of my mouth. Great stuff as always espn...The next report will read "safety is no longer as big a priority due to the Reed signing."

    Tavon Austin would be the great impact player we need. Percy Harvin type talent without the attitude. Would have to trade up to get him though.

    Same for Patterson who has all the physical tools to dominate just needs more experience.

    Justin Hunter, if completely healthy, is a beast as well. 6-4, great deep speed. Drop issues but correctable.

    Those 3 i see as far as run and run fast.

    Yeah i am not a big college fan i just look at mocks and then watch film on some of the guys i think the texans have a shot at. Wasnt overly impressed with any, not like i was with AJ when he was coming out of college

    I don't think there are as many guys at the very top-end of the draft as in some years but there's a lot of good WRs this year.

    I think.

    AJ is a borderline HOFer. Pretty rare to find a guy like that, even at the top of the draft, let alone at the bottom of the first. This draft is plenty strong at WR. No AJs or Megatrons, but there is some legit talent.

    This is one of the deepest receiver classes that I can remember. Could get some good talent in the 3rd and 4th round. I count no less than 18 receivers that I would be surprised if they don't turn into at least solid #2 receivers in their career.

    I'm a big fan of Keenan Allen. Produced at Cal despite horrible QB play.

    Should feel right at home with Schaub throwing him the ball.....
