Houston Texans positional breakdown: Wide receiver
By Randy Gurzi
The hopeful #3, Tevin Jones
Tevin Jones has the size of an NFL receiver, but played at a school not known for producing vast amounts of NFL talent, and he never really lit up the stat sheets for the Memphis Tigers.
Career receptions: 90 (Memphis)
Career yards: 1,215 (Memphis)
Career TDs: 9 (Memphis)
His best season for the Tigers came in 2014 when he grabbed 33 receptions for 442 yards and three touchdowns. He has an outside shot of making the practice squad as a developmental player, mainly because of his size and the Texans lack of that outside of Strong.
Season prediction: Cut before 53-man roster is finalized
The hopeful #4, Richard Mullaney
Another undrafted receiver, the Texans signed the former Oregon State and Alabama receiver after his name wasn’t called during the 2016 NFL Draft.
Weight: 208 pounds
Career receptions: 121 (NCAA)
Career yards: 1,550 (NCAA)
Career TDs: 10 (NCAA)
Mullaney showed some red zone ability during his lone season in Tuscaloosa after spending three years in Oregon State. Five of his 10 career touchdowns came in one season while playing for the Tide and that ability in the money spot could help him find a way to an NFL roster one day.
