24. Houston Texans

Georgia. Riley Ridley . 24. player. 10. . WR

The Texans have been trying to find way to ease the pressure on DeAndre Hopkins in the passing game. Will Fuller can’t stay healthy and it doesn’t appear like Demaryius Thomas is going to be the guy they’d hoped. So it falls to the organization to keep trying. Riley Ridley should make for a strong push in that direction. He’s not the freak of nature that Hopkins is, but he’s as well-rounded a receiver as a team will find. He has good size and hands mixed with enough speed to help get him open. In a much more pass-oriented offense, unlike Georgia, he’s likely to blossom in Houston.
