2012 NFL Mock Draft: Kendall Wright Falls To Houston At NFP

In the latest National Football Post's Mock Draft, Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright fell all the way to No. 26 and the Houston Texans. The reasoning?

Wright might be the draft’s top vertical threat and has the ability to open up a lot of options for the Texans offense down the field. Plus, he now could fall late into round one due to his lacking 40-time at the NFL Combine.

Okay, at this point, every receiver who's around the first round has been linked to the Texans. Wright I guess is a popular choice since he is a vertical threat and the Texans need a vertical threat. Also, there's the proximity to Houston from his home school, which I guess makes people link the two.

However, what are the chances Wright slips that far? If Cleveland manages to trade up for RGIII, there's a possibility they take him and pair the two college teammates up again. Just a lot of variables to get down to No. 26 in this draft. Everyone seems to be leaning towards a receiver for Houston here, which is why I bet it doesn't happen.
