Texans draft: Three wide receivers to draft to support Brandin Cooks
3 of 3
Don’t let Deven Thompkins’ size fool you, Texans fans
When it comes to wide receivers, you don’t think them coming in at 5’7″. But that’s what Thompkins has to work through to get the NFL. Despite his smaller frame, he ran a 4.35 40-yard dash and has a 38.5-inch vertical jump.
Thompkins had 102 receptions for 1700-plus yards and 10 touchdowns in 14 games this past season. It’s clear that Thompkins can be the workhorse when given the rock. Thompkins led the league in deep catches in 2021, and his agility can make him a great weapon in the short passing game as well.
Put Thompkins on your list of players to get on day 3-adding him to the Texans’ offense would be a steal. Especially if any combination of these three wide receivers gets their name called to Houston.
