KeeSean Johnson, WR, Fresno State
The Houston Texans field one of the best, perhaps the best, wide receiver in the entire NFL in DeAndre Hopkins. He’s produced at a high level no matter the quarterback play and no matter the help behind him in the receiving corps.
A few years ago Will Fuller was added to provide some lightning to Hopkins thunder. He’s been very good when healthy but the problem is he hasn’t played a full season yet. Keke Coutee was added to provide some electricity in the slot and showed promise but was severely slowed by a hamstring injury.
After those three guys, there isn’t much left. So, Brian Gaine and the Texans could look to add another receiver to help out Watson and Hopkins and continue to add depth to the offense. KeeSean Johnson surpassed Davante Adams gaudy stats at Fresno State. He has ideal height, weight, and length. Speed and schemed production are the concerns but as a number four option, he’s a tremendous fit for Houston.
DaMarkus Lodge, WR, Ole Miss
Unfortunately, Johnson, like Williams, may not make it to where the Houston Texans first select on Day 3. If not, the third Ole Miss wide receiver, DaMarkus Lodge, could be an option. He is a crisp route runner that can be a reliable safety valve.
