Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Wednesday:
Texans have options at receiver by Aaron Wilson, Houston Chronicle
"Holding the 22nd pick of the first round, the AFC South champion Texans aren’t alone in needing a wide receiver. A cluster of NFL teams are searching for one, including the Minnesota Vikings and Cincinnati Bengals with the ensuing two picks at No. 23 and No. 24 overall.“I think Coleman is going to fit right into that murderer’s row of wide receiver needs in the early 20s,” NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said. “He’ll make sense in there, I believe."
It seems like most outsiders have given themselves over to the Texans taking a wide receiver tomorrow night. I don’t think it’s quite that cut and dry.

I’d still look at guys like center Ryan Kelly (the only top level player at his position in the draft) or potentially at a defensive lineman (there are plenty of them) or even at safety, where Karl Joseph of West Virginia could be an option. Regardless, I can’t wait to see what ultimately happens in the first round.
Texans select cheerleaders by Larry Seward, KHOU
"Before their first cheer, team photo or celebratory selfies, 57 stressed beauties lined up, held hands, forced smiles and then waited.For nine days the group stood out during Texans Cheerleader tryouts. They out-danced 143 other women. Those who remained included Brianna, who graduated high school last year.As coach Alto Gary named her roster one by one, Brianna could barely watch. Eventually, she heard her name."
Let’s hope the players that are picked this week look as good on the field (in a much different way I mean).
Who the Texans almost picked instead of J.J. Watt by Battle Red Blog
"We sit here in our ivory tower and declare who our team SHOULD draft and often immediately lament who they actually draft. Yet there are so many moving pieces to each draft that the best laid plans often go astray. Sometimes, that can be a good thing. Thanks to Ben Baskin’s oral history of the 2011 NFL Draft, you can see how things almost played out for your Houston Texans five years ago. For example: Did you know Rick Smith had a trade up in the first round locked and loaded?"
Well, the player that Smith almost traded up for has turned out alright, but I think nobody will complain about having Watt instead.
