Here's a look around the web at what some leading draftniks think the Texans' plans are with the 27th pick of the first round.
ESPN (Mel Kiper Jr., April 24): DeAndre Hopkins, WR, USC
Kiper sees finding a complementary receiver for Andre Johnson the team's biggest need, and states that "Hopkins has great hands, but also an underrated ability to set up defenders and beat them to space, something a play-action offense needs."
Sports Illustrated (Don Banks, April 17): Keenan Allen, WR, Cal
Banks disagrees with Kiper on the player that the Texans will take, but agrees that wide receiver is the team's highest priority, writing that "Allen catches the ball with physicality, in the mold of Anquan Boldin."
CBS Sports (Rob Rang, April 21): Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
The general consensus certainly appears to be that the Texans will address the wide receiver position with their first selection, with Rang saying that "Patterson is electric with the ball in his hands, making him an ideal complementary threat to Johnson. He's unpolished on and off the field, however, which could push him down the board."
Bleacher Report (Matt Miller, April 22): Keenan Allen, WR, Cal
It's a clean sweep to this point, as Bleacher Report NFL draft lead writer Matt Miller also has the Texans taking a wide receiver in his latest mock draft.
Miller agrees with Banks that it's Keenan Allen of Cal who will get the call, writing that "he's a smooth open-field runner and plays with the vision in space to make plays with his feet."
Houston Chronicle (John McClain, April 20): DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
The Houston Chronicle's John McClain recently participated in a beat writer mock draft for The Los Angeles Times, and in that draft McClain sees the Texans drafting the Clemson star, who he says "is a three-year starter the Texans think would be ready to start as a rookie."
