    I think this one has to be Hunter. They need a #2 for now and a #1 for later. WR is pretty likely IMO, Eifert is great value, the OL got depleted and those 2 fit their scheme nicely. Brown would be a nice fit at ILB for them next to Cushing.

    I went Woods, simply because I think he can help them more now and Hunter is a little more of a project.

    This is tough. I like Hunter physically but Schaub couldn't make the deep plays anyway and he's got drop issues.

    I'm not in love with the other WRs.

    Combing a healthy Cushing with Brown in the middle would turn that into a super unit.

    I still think S and CB should be major needs for the Texas as well. Jamar and Cyphren could be options here.

    The Texans have a lot of holes for a 1 seed.

    Hopkins fits their offense as presently constructed better, IMO. Either works, though.

    Schaub gets Johnson the ball deep just fine. Plus he'll only be the QB for so long.

    I do think they are likely to take a QB in this draft, as high as this pick to be honest.

    I was thinking Manuel, but I like the idea either way.

    I think Philly jumps them. But maybe not.

    Hopkins. He fits their Offense perfect.

    I wouldn't be shocked if the Texans did grab a QB however with good value however. I don't consider EJ Manuel good value because he doesn't impress me, but that is matter of opinion obviously.

    Hopkins was my pick. I like both of the other two, but have a later grade on them. I just think that Hopkins has more dynamic playmaking ability than Hunter or Woods. I don't think that they'll draft a QB unless Smith tumbles.

    The Texans definitely need a wideout. Andre is not getting any younger and the other guys are all #2 prospects or journeyman types. I definitely could see them trading back with a team like Philly that wants to jump up and get a QB.
