In the SB Nation Writer's Mock Draft, your masthead overlords' added more speed to the offensive side of the ball.

Mocking the Draft runs a mock draft just like the one we have been running over here. At pick #22, it came our turn to make the Houston Texans' selection. We went with a really fast wide receiver to add speed to an offense that has been slower than a slug glugging through a river of molasses. Brett explained why we chose Corey Coleman, wide receiver from Baylor:

Other than the nigh-unstoppable fades that DeAndre Hopkins seemed to catch on a weekly basis without breaking a sweat, the Texans had major issues with generating explosive plays in 2015. The addition of Lamar Miller at running back will go a long way toward fixing that problem, but Brock Osweiler still needs more explosiveness outside at wide receiver in order to be successful. Enter Corey Coleman, the speed merchant from Baylor that was on pace to score a whopping 32 touchdowns last year before a sports hernia severely hampered his production in the last month of the season. Between Coleman making opposing corners look silly with his ridiculous athleticism, Hopkins demanding consistent double coverage, and Miller having the potential to break a long run on any given play, this new-look Texans offense will never be short of explosive plays again.

Should we have taken Laquon Treadwell? Josh Doctson?  Should we have already hedged our bets with Brock Osweiler and taken a quarterback? Should we have gone with a competent nose tackle? Should we have found Jared Crick's replacement? Or do you love the pick?

Let us know your thoughts on our selection below.
