NFL Mock Draft 2012: NFP Has Texans Picking WR Stephen Hill

What is it with these mock drafters and making Houston select a wide receiver? The National Football Post has another mock draft up and they've got the Texans taking the incredibly raw wideout Stephen Hill:

Hill is going to need to become a more consistent route runner. However, at 6-5 he showcases some natural short-area quickness to his game and knows how to go up and get the football vertically. He’s one of the draft's elite size/speed combos at the receiver spot and his stock is on the rise.

Because if it's one thing you look for in a West Coast-style offense, it's a receiver who can't really run routes that well...Hill does have the size and reputation to be a great blocker for Kubiak and Company, and his stock really does seem to be on the rise. I'm just very skeptical that it'll rise to Houston's spot.

That's especially true since both Donta Hightower and Luke Kuechly lasted until this pick in this mock. With the trade of DeMeco Ryans, is there a chance Houston doesn't go defense in the first round? I'd love Kuechly to fall this far, since he'd make an excellent counterpart for Brian Cushing on the inside, but I fear it won't happen.
