For most of the pre-draft season, the Houston Texans have been linked to Baylor WR Kendall Wright with the No. 26 pick in the first round, a trend that continues in the latest mock draft from the National Football Post:
26. Houston Texans: Baylor WR Kendall Wright
Wright might be the draft's top vertical threat and has the ability to open up a lot of options for the Texans offense down the field.
Wright's ability to stretch the field was a crucial part of Robert Griffin III's Heisman winning season while the Texans lack of a solid No. 2 next to Andre Johnson was exposed when the All-Pro WR went down with a hamstring injury early last season.
That leaves Wright battling with Georgia Tech WR Stephen Hill, who the Post has going at No. 30, for the No. 3 WR spot on most NFL draft boards.
