I'm a few days late with this, but not so late that it isn't still ripe for discussion. Mocking The Draft's newest first round mock is out, and Dan Kadar and Matthew Fairburn have put together a doozy. What do they have your Houston Texans doing with the twenty-seventh pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, you ask?
|27. Houston Texans
||Robert Woods, USC||WR||6'0||201||Jr.|
Perhaps the talk of a middle linebacker for Houston in the first round has been overblown with Brooks Reed kicking inside. At wide receiver, the Texans don't have a lot after the aging Andre Johnson. DeVier Posey showed some flashes last season but his health for next season is uncertain. Don't forget, going into last college football season, Woods was considered a mid first-round pick. But he struggled with injuries and was passed over by Marqise Lee. Along with Hopkins, Woods may have the best hands in the draft this year.
I would have no problem with this pick, though I may admittedly be higher on Woods than most. How would you react to Robert Woods becoming the Texans' latest first round selection on April 25th?
