2012 NFL Mock Draft: Houston Texans Take Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill

The final mock draft of 2012 is up at SB Nation's main page, and the Houston Texans are slotted to take receiver Stephen Hill of Georgia Tech with the 26th overall pick in the first round.

Houston adds another big man to Andre Johnson's other side. Hill may not have the route savvy of other receivers, but he can catch a fade and a jump ball just fine.

According to the SB Nation mock, Hill would be the third receiver off the board after Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon (No. 4 to Cleveland) and Notre Dame's Michael Floyd (No. 17 to Cincinnati).

The pick of Hill isn't surprising - the Texans are all but assured of taking a wideout, according to basically everyone - but the mock draft doesn't include Baylor's Kendall Wright going at all in the first round. Wright has been considered a favorite of the Texans in several mock drafts.
