NFL Mock Draft 2012: SI's Final Mock Has Texans Taking Wisconsin OG Kevin Zeitler

While the Houston Texans have been linked to WR's in the first round for most of the pre-draft season, the final mock draft from SI.com's Don Banks has the team going in a different direction:

26OG Kevin Zeitler Wisconsin Sr. 6-4 315 After marrying the Texans to a receiver all spring, the story changes at the very end, especially with Baylor receiver Kendall Wright no longer an option. I'm doing mostly dot-connecting here, but the Texans did lose their starting right guard and right tackle this offseason, and Houston had pretty good luck taking an ex-Badger in the first round of last year's draft in J.J. Watt.

Banks has three WR's going off the board before Houston picks at No. 26: Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon going No. 6 to the St. Louis Rams, Notre Dame's Michael Floyd going No. 13 to the Arizona Cardinals and Baylor's Kendall Wright going No. 22 to the Cleveland Browns.

Stephen Hill, a 6'5 206 WR from Georgia Tech, would still be on the board in this scenario, but Banks has Houston targeting the offensive line if the top three wide-outs are gone.
