2015 NFL Mock Draft: A New Wide Receiver For The Houston Texans?

New, comments

In Dan Kadar's latest mock of the 2015 NFL Draft, he has the Houston Texans taking a player that would likely polarize the fan base, at least in terms of the immediate reaction to the pick.

Dan Kadar has his latest mock draft up for your review, and he has the Houston Texans taking a player not named Eric Kendricks. Strange, I know. Yet I ask you to read on anyway.

16. Houston Texans: Jaelen Strong (WR--Arizona State)

At some point in the last two weeks, Southern California wide receiver Nelson Agholor has become a first-round pick and for some the choice for Houston. Let's say they go with a receiver. Agholor may have moderately better hands than Strong, but what are the other advantages? Strong will go up after passes more aggressively and is considerably bigger and stronger.

As I said when the Ravens took Strong in the 2015 BRB Mock Draft, this would terrify me. How would you react if the Texans did in fact take Jaelen Strong with the 16th pick of the 2015 NFL Draft?
