The Houston Texans also need some addition help at wide receiver and if Jameson Williams is somehow available in this spot — and the Texans have drafted elsewhere with the third overall pick — taking a wide receiver has to be a serious consideration here at 13th overall.

Imagine a trio of Houston Texans wide receivers that includes Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins and Jameson Williams together for the 2022 NFL season? That is a trio of players who could really help the progression of second-year quarterback Davis Mills this upcoming season, which is maybe the most important part of the Texans franchise moving forward.

Even with his torn ACL, a selection of Jameson Williams at 13th overall is well worth the investment. In an article by Nick Shook of NFL.com he quoted Williams about his recovery, and it sounds like Williams more than headed in the right direction:

"“I was hearing five to seven months, but I’m hearing I’m ahead of schedule,” Williams said. “I’m six weeks out of surgery right now. I’ve been walking without the brace for two weeks, without the crutch for three weeks.”"

That is great news for the talented wide receiver who had 79 receptions for over 1,500 yards in ’21, not forgetting he also caught 15 touchdowns in his final collegiate season at Alabama.

Williams if he fully recovers from his ACL injury can be a star in the NFL. He’s more than a game changer for any team that takes him.

For the Texans if he’s available at 13th overall Williams has to be a serious consideration as he can make Mills into not just a very good quarterback, but possibly a great quarterback as his potential as a deep threat is off the charts.
