The Houston Texans are expected to take either a wide receiver or a defensive tackle with their first round pick and Walter Football who has put out a four round mock draft has the Texans going with a wide receiver with their No. 26 pick:
No. 26 Houston Texans: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina Gamecocks:
A wide receiver is probably the pick that will help the Texans get to the next level more than adding a defensive lineman to an already stellar unit. Jeffrey's stock has dropped after having a poor senior season where his receptions and receiving yards were cut in half.
The second round pick is where Walter Football projects the Texans to take a defensive tackle:
No. 56 Houston Texans: Josh Chapman, NT, Alabama Crimson Tide
I really like this pick for the Texans. They need help at nose tackle, and Wade Phillips prefers smaller players at the position. Plus, Houston has seemed to favor prospects out of the southeast in recent drafts.
