An interesting take from "Mort". Around here, now that the Vike's have secured the services of Jennings, many are saying the team may draft D in their first two #1 picks, due to a "deep" draft class at WR..... With all due respect to Jennings, he isn't going to keep anyone awake at night in fear of him, or the turning of Simpson from a cows ear to a silk purse, no matter how much the Viking's wish. Here is a team with Andre Johnson, and their "highest priority" is a speed WR....Notice Keenan Allen is not mentioned in discussing "speed". I hope GM Rick also sees this, as his coach who wants someone who can "take the top off".
Appearing on NFL 32 Thursday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen "assured" the audience the Texans will draft a speed receiver in April.
"I assure you they're going to add a wide receiver or two in this draft," said Mort. "Somebody that can run and run fast. Their highest priority." The Texans have the 27th overall pick and could consider Tennessee's Justin Hunter if Tavon Austin and Cordarrelle Patterson are gone. Houston is desperate for a vertical stretcher to book end -- and perhaps eventually replace -- 32-year-old Andre Johnson.
