Should the Texans have drafted Tyreek Hill instead of Will Fuller?

Cameron DaSilva of FOX Sports has posted a re-draft of the 2016 NFL Draft and he has the Houston Texans using the 21st overall pick on wide receiver Tyreek Hill instead of Will Fuller.

"The Texans’ defense was one of the best in the NFL, allowing the fewest yards of any team. The offense, on the other hand, was not. They could have used a sparkplug like Tyreek Hill, who was a dynamic playmaker for the Chiefs."

Hill had a heck of a season for the Kansas City Chiefs with 61 receptions for 593 yards and six touchdowns.

Fuller’s numbers were right up there with Hill’s.  He hauled in 47 receptions for 635 yards and two touchdowns. Fuller did have less receptions and touchdowns, but you also have to factor in that the Chiefs have the edge when it comes to the quarterback position.

How much did Fuller’s numbers suffer from having Brock Osweiler throwing the ball instead of Alex Smith of the Chiefs?  I would think quite a bit.

Smith threw for half the interceptions (8) than Osweiler (16) did last season. This means he was able to sustain drives and move the ball down the field.  We all know how inept the Texans offense was .

As explosive as Hill is, I’m not sure I would take him over Fuller.  I ultimately believe the Texans made the right pick.
