Updated Wide Receiver Depth Chart for Texans Ahead of Training Camp
It's going to be a long year ahead for Houston Texans fans. There's so much uncertainty around the quarterback position and this team is drawing bets to go 0-17 defeated in 2021. The Texans aren't even sure who will be starting at quarterback amid Deshaun Watson's legal troubles. Still, this team possesses a ton of weapons at wide receiver, including a third-round selection in Nico Collins.
Here's a look at the Texans' updated WR depth chart for 2021.
Texans WR Depth Chart 2021
1. Brandin Cooks
Eight-year NFL veteran Brandin Cooks returns as the leading target for Texans quarterbacks next season. Last year, he led the team with 119 targets, 81 receptions and 1,150 receiving yards. He'll look to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the sixth time in his past seven seasons.
2. Randall Cobb
Randall Cobb returns as the highest-paid Texans WR. He didn't produce like a $10 million wideout last year, however. Cobb played in just 10 games, catching 38 balls for less than 500 receiving yards. The Texans will look for him to step up his production, especially if a young Davis Mills gets snaps under center.
3. Keke Coutee
Houston selected Keke Coutee in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. His production isn't off the charts, but he's been a reliable target for the past three seasons. Despite only playing 8 games, Coutee recorded 33 receptions for 400 yards in 2020.
4. Nico Collins
The Texans used their second pick in this year's draft on Michigan wideout Nico Collins (No. 89 overall). Collins did not play his senior season at Michigan, but he racked up 1,388 yards in three years during college. He also caught 13 touchdowns during that span and will fight for time on this roster.
5. Andre Roberts
6. Chris Conley
7. Chris Moore
8. Alex Erickson
9. Donte Moncrief
10. Isaiah Coulter
11. Damon Hazelton
12. Marlon Williams
13. Taywan Taylor
