2013 DBN Mock Draft: Houston Texans Select Keenan Allen at No. 27


With the 27th pick in the 2013 Dawgs By Nature NFL Community Mock Draft, the Houston Texans select...

Keenan Allen, WR, California

This selection and write-up was made by The B-Train:

Allen seems the most likely pick of the WRs left on the board. Allen has all the physical tools to be a dominating receiver. He gets good separation, has great hands and deceptive speed. He's actually a mirror image of current Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson. Both receivers are strong enough to push opposing defensive backs around and have enough speed to be deep threats in any offense. Having two AJ's on the field could be devastating for opposing secondaries. While Allen has suffered from inconsistent QB play and has a injury history, the potential reward based on his upside is more than enough to warrant his selection at this spot.

I expect Allen to start immediately opposite Andre Johnson. Provided that both receivers stay healthy, the Texans look to be in a very good position on the offensive side of the ball.

The Texans definitely need some new blood at the receiver position. It's hard to believe that Andre Johnson has been in the league for 11 years! Wow, I feel old now. The Texans haven't really had a solid No. 2 receiver to complement Johnson for awhile. The guy who was filling that role, Kevin Walter, is now with the Titans.

The Denver Broncos are up next, led by KillerNut.
