2012 NFL Mock Draft: Texans To Take Wide Receiver, But Which One?

SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber has an updated look at the 2012 NFL Draft with one last mock round one before the league's free agency period shakes up team needs. The Texans seem poised to take a receiver to compliment Andre Johnson, and while some talk has centered around Baylor's Kendall Wright, Van Bibber predicts Combine sleeper Stephen Hill of Georgia Tech will be the pick:

26. Houston Texans, Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

If Houston wants a nose tackle, they ought to kick the tires on Paul Soliai who is leaving the Dolphins in free agency. They could even find a cheaper option via some other route since they would be surrounded with talent elsewhere on the defensive line. Upgrading their offense is a priority if the Texans are going to build off last season's incredible run. Hill can be worked in with Andre Johnson, who is still the lead horse in the passing game.
