2016 NFL Draft Prospects By Position: Wide Receivers

New, comments

The Houston Texans are blessed to have a few options at wide receiver, but that doesn't mean we can't continue to target more receiving options for this shiny new quarterback we hope to be starting under center. Take a look at the Wide Receiver prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft and offer your opinions on them below.

On April 25, 2013, the Texans drafted DeAndre Hopkins in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Hopkins just attended his first Pro Bowl after posting the best season a Texans wide receiver has ever had, so this pick is one of the many first round picks we've done well with. Rookie Jaelen Strong, after a rocky start to his career that led to his head coach commenting on his practice performance, emerged late in the season as someone Texans fans can hope develops into something special as well.

Despite having two solid receiving options, along with Nate Washington, Cecil Shorts III, and Keith Mumphery, every team is always looking to add to and improve its roster, and the Texans should be no different. With that in mind, we're glancing over what Draft Breakdown and CBS have to say about the position.

Ohio State's Braxton Miller converted from quarterback to wide receiver with the understanding that a career on Sundays was unlikely to occur unless he made the move. He was invited to the Senior Bowl, and reportedly wowed scouts. Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell is also highly ranked, as are Rutgers' Leonte Carroo and TCU Horned Frog Josh Doctson who, despite his injury, is still projected to go in the second round.

Which wide receiver prospects are you looking at? Is this a position the Texans should spend a high draft pick on, or do we wait and see what the third day brings us? Do we go the UDFA route or is the position set as-is? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments below.
