That is certainly possible. If the Texans are eyeing a WR with their pick they would probably be looking at Hill or Randle. Both are big receivers who can get vertical, and would be very effective in their play-action heavy offense.


IMO randle is the better player

wow, I forgot Demaryius Thomas was the first WR drafted in 2010, over Dez Bryant, lol. Denver really screwed up that draft....and Kyle Wilson or McCourty instead of using 2 late round picks on a CB.

Regardless of whatever WR they would have picked, they still would have had TeBlows "passing" to him.
I still think Thomas can be a really good WR if he can stay healthy and have an actually QB starting.
lol Yes finally looks like Thomas won't be playing the triple option anymore with manning, i think if he's healthy than thomas will look good.

They didn't pass much at G-Tech.

Maiocco has an interesting article on not taking a Wr in the first round. It makes alot of sense.

You have to look at the team stats...

GT 2011 Tevin Washington-74/150, 1652 yards, 11TD's-8INTs
GT 2010 Josh Nesbit-39/105, 674 yards, 7TD's-4INTs Tevin Washington-25/61, 417 yards, 2TDs-3INTs

Stanford 2011 Andrew Luck-288-404, 3517 yards, 37TD's-10INTs
Stanford 2010 Andrew Luck-263/372, 3338 yards, 32-TDs-8INTs

Didn't Calven Johnson put up something like 180 receptions for 3000 yards and 28 TDs while he was at GT for 3 years? Or more recently, didn't Demaryius Thomas put up something like 120 receptions for 2300 yards and 15TDs in his 3 years?

Hill has what, 49 catches 9 TDs in 3 years there....

He had a lot of drops?
Sounds like an upgraded version of Jason Hill.

This why I think, with some other people, that a guard in the 1st round makes more sense. 1st round is high for a guard, but chances are good that he can start right away and compete with Kilgore.

I really like Stephen Hill with his size and speed, though his production is really suspect.

This is a deep class of WR. Would rather get an immediate starter at another position at #30 and develop one of the receivers we pick later.

Yeah, I'm hearing alot of talking heads saying that Hill didn't run much of anything but straight ahead. We can get a reciever to groom in rounds 2-4. I like the idea of an OG at #30 that can come in and start right away. I'm really starting to sour on Hill and if we go reciever at #30, I'd rather go with Randle, anyways.

I agree with the depth at receiver. I'm not sure the dropoff from Hill to the 3rd rd guys is enough to justify Hill as a 1st rd selection.

We are so set at almost every position that I don't really care which of our weak positions Baalke goes for first.

A player that makes the team would be an upgraded version of Jason Hill...
