Texans worked out Nebraska wide receiver Brandon Reilly
Would the Houston Texans really draft another wide receiver?
As of right now it looks like the Houston Texans are looking to possibly add a wide receiver in this year’s NFL draft.
The Texans have already shown interest in San Jose State wide receiver Tim Crawley and now have reportedly already worked out Nebraska wide receiver Brandon Reilly.
Brian Christoperson of the Lincoln Journal-Star reported that Reilly looked good during his pro day last Tuesday and that the Texans worked him out just two days later.
"Brandon Reilly was told by teams that he was clocked in the 4.42/4.43 range in the 40. The wide receiver was impressive in position drills, and is definitely someone to keep an eye on as a late-round guy. His highlight-reel performance in the bowl game against Tennessee won’t hurt."
"Reilly already has a few teams that have talked to him and a workout with the Houston Texans scheduled on Thursday."

Reilly is certainly bigger than the 5’7″, 170 Crawley. He stands at 6’2″ and weighs about 200 pounds.
Reilly didn’t have a very good season at Nebraska in 2016, but you also have to factor in that the Cornhuskers ranked 122nd in completion percentage in the nation last season after using more than one quarterback.
Reilly finished the 2016 season with 21 receptions for 412 yards and two touchdowns. He had a nice season in 2015 with 40 receptions for 754 yards and four touchdowns.
If the Texans do decide to draft a wide receiver, I can’t imagine them doing so early on after selecting both Will Fuller and Braxton Miller just last year.
