2012 NFL Mock Draft: Everything Coming Up WR For Houston

WR's have dominated the mock draft conversation for the Houston Texans for the last two months, and that doesn't change in SB Nation's latest mock draft, which has Houston taking Rutgers WR Mohamed Sanu with the No. 26 pick in the first round:

26. Houston Texans, Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers

Houston desperately needs help at the wide receiver position. Andre Johnson is still good, but he has durability concerns. With two receivers that get the secondary's attention, things will really open up for other receivers and tight end Owen Daniels. Sanu is a solid pick here.

Sanu, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound junior WR, has been climbing up recent mock drafts as more NFL talent evaluators and media personnel become familiar with him.

He burst onto the scene in 2011, with 115 receptions for 1,206 yards and 7 TD's, doubling his statistics from the season before.

But while he may be the best WR on the board when Houston selects, there's no guarantee the franchise focuses solely on need at the end of the first round.

Not only were the Texans successful enough last year that they can afford to take a longer view, but rookie WR's tend to have a dramatic learning curve, which would put more weight into the camp who wants to take the best available player on their board.
