Houston Texans draft needs: 5 small schoolers who can turn the Texans around

Deandre Hopkins the Houston Texans wide receiver has been one of the best wide outs in the NFL, and if the Texans can add some help around him they can be contenders.

The Houston Texans have the best wide receiver in the game according to us in Deandre Hopkins. The Texans are not one of the best teams in the AFC right now but they can easily win their division. They need an Offensive lineman, tight end, safety, running back and wide receiver. We feel they are a few players away and these small schoolers can help them take over their division and get them to the playoffs.

Iosua Opeta, OL, Weber State – The big and versatile offensive lineman from Weber State could be a huge upgrade on the Texans offensive line. Opeta is a great kid with a mean streak. So many NFL scouts have been raving about him and if the Texans want to land him they will have to spend a mid round pick on him. Opeta will showcase his talents at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Justin Chaney, TE, Howard – Chaney is a small school tight end who is 6050 and 240 pounds with 4.7 speed. He can catch good and is not afraid to block. I like this kid and feel he can be a solid addition to Watson and Hopkins. Chaney will likely be an undrafted free agent and a great pick up.

Chris Johnson, DB, University of North Alabama– Chris Johnson is one of the most underrated players in the NFL Draft, and he is a beast. He is fast, he hits hard, and he is always around the ball. Chris Johnson will be a draft pick and the Texans would not be silly to use a pick on him.

James Holland, RB, Colgate University – Holland is a 5090 running back with big play ability. He finished with over 30 career touchdowns. Holland is not afraid to put his down and bull you as well. He will likely be a priority free agent but he will be a great addition to the Texans backfield room.

Reggie White Jr., WR, Monmouth University – Reggie White Jr. is a 6030 wide receiver who should be a draft pick. Reggie White is a stud and I love this kids catch radius. The Maryland native is a playmaker who deserves to be drafted. He will likely fall undrafted and there will be a steep competition for his services.
