After releasing Kevin Walter, the Houston Texans are staggeringly thin at wide receiver on the depth chart. They don't have a credible threat opposite Andre Johnson. Fortunately, there should be plenty of receiving talent available at the tail end of the first round.
Although the Texans drafted two wide receivers last year, Devier Posey won't be healthy at the start of the season and Keshawn Martin is more of a slot receiver. With Andre Johnson getting older, the Texans would be smart to draft a player now that can eventually become the team's No. 1 wide receiver.
Allen wasn't able to participate in the Combine due to an injury, but he has one of the highest ceilings out of any receiver in this class. With the assumption that Tavon Austin and Cordarralle Patterson won't fall this far, Houston may have their pick of either Allen, DeAndre Hopkins or Justin Hunter.
