Coleman, Doctson, Treadwell talk Texans




Three of the most-prominent names at wide receiver in the 2016 NFL Draft think highly of the Houston Texans.

They said so on Wednesday in Chicago.

"It is a good situation," Baylor receiver Corey Coleman said. "It's a great team. A great organization. It's in Texas, too. If I was to fall there, it'd be awesome."

Coleman, TCU's Josh Doctson and Laquon Treadwell of Ole Miss took part in an NFL Play 60 community event with local kids, and then met with the media. With just over 24 hours to go until the start of the first round, and the Texans picking at 22 overall, they had good things to say about the 2015 AFC South Champs.


"I've visited with the Texans during my time with travel, team visits," Doctson said. "Great organization. They got some key guys at the receiver position. Really talented guys. A great defense, obviously. I'd look forward to playing with the Texans, or anybody that picks me."

Treadwell, meanwhile, also thinks the Texans are "a great team". But he was intrigued by what he saw last August on HBO.

"I watched Hard Knocks," Treadwell said. "That's a great show. They got a great staff. DeAndre Hopkins, I watched him a little bit."

Treadwell especially liked what he perceived to be a tight-knit locker room. 

"I think they have fun with it," Treadwell said. "It's family-oriented, like how the guys mess with each other and go at it. Then they just blow it off when they get in the locker room. It's an interesting team. It's a great opportunity if I went to the Texans."

The first round is Thursday night, while the second and third rounds are Friday evening. Rounds four through seven are Saturday afternoon. Below are the Texans draft picks.

RD 1: 22nd overall
RD 2: 52nd overall
RD 3: 85th overall
RD 4: 119th overall
RD 5: 159th overall
RD 5: 166th overall (via trade with New England)
RD 6: 195th overall (via trade with New York Jets)
