2013 NFL Draft: Houston Texans Should Listen to Andre Johnson and Draft a Wide Receiver

(Brett Davis/USA Today Sports)

With the 2013 NFL Draft just a few days away, there’s plenty of questions surrounding the Houston Texans when it comes to what they will do with their first-round pick. If last season is any indication of what to expect, there’s no reason why the Texans shouldn’t be one of the top contenders in the AFC once again, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have any areas in need of improvement.

In fact, when it comes to the draft, it would be wise for Houston to listen to star wide receiver Andre Johnson and consider selecting a wide receiver in the first round.

Sure, the Texans already contain one of the top wide receivers in football, but they’ve been in need of a consistent No. 2 wide receiver for quite some time. On paper, Houston has displayed one of the top offenses in football over the last couple of years, but they could still use some improvement considering how difficult it can be for Johnson to carry the passing game at times.

When looking at some of the wide receivers from this year’s class, there are plenty of players that would make a great addition for the Texans during the 2013 season. From Tavon Austin to Keenan Allen, there’s a good chance Houston will find themselves in the position to draft at least one solid wide receive when they are on the clock in the first round.

Be smart Houston–listen to Johnson and select a wide receiver in the first round of this year’s draft class to give the team a solid No. 2 wideout.
