Nowadays in the NFL the bigger, stronger receivers are the players that every defensive coordinator has nightmares about the night before the game. Players such as Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, Anquan Boldin, Andre Johnson and even Josh Gordon are all big receivers and have became major weapons in their offense.
The Houston Texans currently have one of those big, deadly receivers in Andre Johnson, who has by far been Quarterback Matt Schaub’s favorite target the past 10 years and has been a constant producer for Houston. But with the release of veteran receiver Kevin Walter, Houston needs to look for a replacement and need to draft someone that will compliment Johnson and be a threat playing opposite him.
Baylor wide receiver Terrance Williams would be a perfect fit. Williams is a 6’2″ 210 lb receiver who isn’t scared to attack the ball with his hands and can make the big catches, even in heavy traffic. He’s not the fastest receiver, with his lowest 40 time being a 4.4 with and average of 4.52, which with his size is pretty respectable. Williams finished last season 97 receptions, 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was named a unanimous first-team All-American last season along with being a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, which is awarded to the nations’ top WR each year.
Houston needs to get another receiver that can produce as well as Johnson, and Williams is that guy. Williams did not miss a single game last year and has proved just how tough he is and has shown on the field that when given the chance, he can be a very deadly weapon for any time. If Williams is available at the number 27 pick, Houston would be foolish to pass on him. This team needs a little extra spark on their offense and Williams can provide it.
