Opposite Andre Johnson, the Texans have little talent. With Johnson soon turning 32, it's time to finally add a solid No. 2 receiver that can eventually replace him. Allen is a big, strong receiving target who specializes in getting yards after the catch.
Allen hasn't been able to work out for teams due to a nagging ankle injury, and it has hurt his draft stock to the point that people believe he could fall to the second round. Still, with Tavon Austin, Cordarrelle Patterson and DeAndre Hopkins all off the board in this mock, Houston goes with the next best option. Allen has tremendous upside if he can get healthy.
