NFL Draft 2012: Wes Bunting Has Houston Texans Taking Georgia Tech WR Stephen Hill

The Houston Texans are sitting at the No. 26 position in the upcoming NFL Draft in April, and Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has the AFC South champs taking Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets wide receiver Stephen Hill. Its interesting to see Georgia Tech producing quality first-round talent at wide receiver although they seldom pass since they run a triple-option offense.

Of course, you can't ignore Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas coming out of the program, so maybe Stephen Hill has the potential to live up to the previous Yellow Jacket wideouts.

26. Houston Texans: Georgia Tech WR 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. Could be one of the "hot" names following the 2012 NFL Combine.

At this point, I'm convinced that there are at least ten different first-round talents at the wide receiver position. If this is the case, then I could see Houston possibly trading down to get some additional picks since the position pool is so deep.
