2012 NFL Mock Draft: Kendall Wright To The Houston Texans

Another 2012 NFL Mock Draft, and another analyst forecasting Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright to the Houston Texans. This time, it's SI's Don Banks who has the Baylor Bear headed to the Texans with the No. 26 pick in this year's NFL Draft.

As Wright's draft stock continues to solidify based on his strong pro day showing, I'm coming back around to Houston taking the more proven ex-Baylor Bear over Georgia Tech speedster Stephen Hill. Wright can't stretch a defense as well as Hill, but he'd be a play-making complement receiver opposite Andre Johnson.

The entire Texans offense would benefit greatly from adding another playmaker to the offense, and Banks, along with other analysts, seem to believe that Wright will do just that for the Texans.

Wright is the third wide receiver projected to go by Banks, with Justin Blackmon projected to the Rams at No. 6 overall, and Michael Floyd projected to be drafted by the Bills at No. 10 overall.
