6 Reasons Lestar Jean Will Emerge as Houston's No. 3 WR

When the 2012 NFL season finally rolls around, the Houston Texans will have a new starter in their receiving core.

Of all the receivers competing for the final starting job behind Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter, three stand out above the rest.

DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin, both of whom were selected by the Texans in the recent NFL draft, are clearly slated to be two of the main competitors for the third receiving job.

There is another athlete, however, who may be more poised to emerge as the team's No. 3 receiver. Lestar Jean, who was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2011 out of Florida Atlantic University, has all the hype surrounding him as the 2012 season fast approaches.

Lestar "Big Play" Jean was a training camp star last season; he seemed primed to emerge as major contributor for Houston and perhaps eventually replace the incumbent Jacoby Jones.

Then, unfortunately, Jean suffered a shoulder injury that prevented him from playing for the rest of the season.

Now, as the competition intensifies between Jean, Posey and Martin, is it possible for Jean to make the jump from undrafted rookie to being a starter?

Here's why Jean will win the third and final starting job.
