Rant Sports 2013 NFL Mock Draft: Houston Texans Select Terrance Williams at No. 27
The Houston Texans are in big need of another playmaking wide receiver and that’s exactly what Baylor WR Terrance Williams provides. Quarterback Matt Schaub needs another big target to play outside opposite veteran Andre Johnson, and the loss of veteran Kevin Walter makes that an even bigger need.
Williams is a big, powerful receiver who can block when needed and has the ability to go up and get the ball. His style of play fits Houston’s offense perfectly, he’s an excellent route runner and attacks the ball with his hands. Williams is a a great addition to be the number two receiver behind Johnson while DeVier Posey and Keyshawn Martin are still developing. He is the type of player who will come in and make an impact on this offense from day one and that’s exactly what Houston needs.
Williams will provide a big target for Schaub and can make the tough catches even in traffic. Williams posted 97 receptions for 1832 yards and 12 touchdowns last season and really impressed coaches and scouts at the NFL Combine and at Baylor’s pro day. Schaub struggles a bit last season with interceptions but will feel more comfortable and have more confidence in his throws with two playmaking receivers in Johnson and Williams.
This is exactly the move Houston needs to make to get over the hump they’ve hit the past two seasons. With this pick and smart selections throughout the entire draft there’s no reason we shouldn’t at least see Houston in the AFC Championship game this year.
