[Pick 89] Nico Collins WR Michigan

Because they traded up to get a WR even though they were already upside down on draft capital. Which would seem to indicate, along with the David Mills pick that the team is posturing to move on from DW4. Which will result in a trade and a recovery of said draft capital when the entire process plays out. That and along with cutting him out of the intro of Texans 360 of course.

I don't read the tea leaves that way.

It seems strange that a guy that fast has trouble getting separation. Is he one of those guys that can run fast in a straight line but doesn't have lateral quickness ?
It’s not his his top end speed ...that is great, it’s his acceleration. Takes him a little bit to get up to that top end speed...& you can see it in his film. He’s a pretty big guy though so that’s understandable.

They must really like what they have already on defense OR they believe some good defensive guys will become available to use their 1st 2 picks on offense.

How did Jimmy Johnson put it.....you can’t teach speed. Collins can be coached-up in regards to his route running but you can’t coach a guy, at his size, to suddenly have 4.4-40 speed with special acceleration.....that’s a God given talent. He could turn into a AJ 2.0 if they get his route running improved.
