Darren Waller, Georgia Tech
If I told you a guy had 26 catches and 442 yards and six touchdowns, you may say why should the Texans even consider him. Still, Georgia Tech wide receiver Darren Waller is worth a strong consideration.
First off, he caught a good bit of the passes the team threw in 2014, as they only completed 106 total passes on the year. Also, the six scores shows how valuable Waller was to this team in the red zone.
Another plus for Waller is he is enormous. He is tall at 6’6″ and thick at 238 pounds, and is not a slow runner despite his size.
For some reason, the Yellow Jackets have turned out some great wide receivers, despite hardly throwing the ball, and Waller has a shot to be another good pro. He does have some question marks as he has been suspended a couple of times in his career, but can come in as a value pick in round four or later.
One thing is for sure about Waller, no matter how much work he may need as a route runner, he is going to be a willing run blocker after playing in the option offense at Tech.
