Report: Texans are targeting three receivers in the NFL draft
By Randy Gurzi
SportsRadio 610 in Houston is reporting that the Houston Texans are zeroing in on three wide receivers in the NFL Draft
The NFL Draft is less than 60 minutes away and the rumors are still flying around at a rapid pace. Recent reports about the Houston Texans are indicating that the team is considering three players with their 22nd pick, all of which happen to play wide receiver.
The Texans obviously are intent on getting more weapons for new quarterback Brock Osweiler, despite already having running back Lamar Miller and stud receiver DeAndre Hopkins on the roster.
Corey Coleman from Baylor, Josh Doctson from TCU and Will Fuller from Notre Dame are the guys they reportedly covet.
Although just 5-foot-11, Coleman is considered by many to be the best wide receiver in the draft, although some might say Ole Miss’ Laquon Treadwell takes that title. He recorded 33 touchdowns during his career at Baylor, 20 of which came in 2015.
Fuller is similar in height at 6-foot even and is known for his amazing speed, but can at times be a body catcher. One thing for sure, both Coleman or Fuller could be huge home run threats for Houston.
Doctson is much taller at 6-foot-4, but is a slender 190 pounds. He still has room to grow into his frame and is an extremely polished route runner. He may not create the big plays that Fuller or Coleman would, but he could be the most complete of the three.
