NFL Mock Draft 2013: Texans seek a wide receiver

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Experts weigh in on who the Texans will target in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Houston Texans are tied for the best record in football, so playoff glory is all that is on the mind of Texans fans right now. But April's NFL draft will come soon enough, and the Texans may be looking to add talent to Andre Johnson and the wide receiving corp.

According to the latest mock draft from CBS Sports, analyst Rob Rang pegs the Texans as drafting Baylor's Terrance Williams with the final pick of the first round. While receivers like USC's Marqise Lee have gotten more publicity, Williams caught more yards than anyone in college football this season.

In 12 games of the 2012 season, Williams has hauled in 95 catches for 1,764 yards and 12 touchdowns. In the season after the departure of Robert Griffin III, the 6'2" receiver from Dallas became the primary target for quarterback Nick Florence.

In another CBS Sports mock draft, analyst Dane Brugler has the Texans selecting LSU linebacker Kevin Minter instead, which would shore up an already stout defense. Minter is a 6'2 junior who ranks in the top 40 in tackles, having recorded 111 tackles and three sacks in 2012.
