2012 NFL Mock Draft: Texans Select Kendall Wright In Another Mock Draft

In FOX Sports' Peter Schrager's latest mock draft, he selects Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright for the Houston Texans in the first round with the No. 26 overall pick.

Wright's stock took a bit of a hit when he showed up to the combine a bit heavier and slower than expected. I still see him going in the first round, and if he's still around when Houston is on the clock, don't expect the Texans to take the full 15 minutes. I've been hot on Wright, who's most often compared to DeSean Jackson for his big-play ability, since I saw him toe the sideline for 30 yards on a touchdown run vs. Kansas State. He's a lightning bolt who possesses good hands and great route-running ability. He's not built like a Calvin Johnson or a Larry Fitzgerald, but he'd be an incredible complement to Andre Johnson in Gary Kubiak's offense.

An offense featuring Kendall Wright, Andre Johnson and Arian Foster would be tough to stop. With Johnson's durability issues, Wright could be the team's No. 1 receiver if he were to have to sit some games out. This pick could help the Texans offense get back to the playoffs again in 2012.
