Everyone knows that BattleRedNation.com is your number one source for all independent, unfiltered, and unbiased Texans related information. We are now going to share some information from our “master list” on which players the Texans have shown interest in, interviewed, attended workouts, and had in for visits. Once again, we’re naming names.

Houston has taken a keen interest in wide receivers, despite already having one of the game’s best in Andre Johnson. Here are some of the players that the Texans are interested in.

Juaquin Iglesias - the former Oklahoma standout is expected to be a second to third round pick. For more on Iglesias: http://hou.scout.com/2/835227.html

Derrick Williams - another speedy, smallish receiver from Penn State who could account for another deep threat. For more on Williams: http://hou.scout.com/2/847202.html

Demetrius Byrd - Byrd is another small, speedy wideout who could be a legitimate deep threat for Houston.

Louis Murphy - Murphy was largely overshadowed by teammate Percy Harvin and Tim Tebow, but he could turn into a better pro than both. Murphy has legit speed and should represent a value in the middle rounds.

Mohamed Massaquoi - Massaquoi is more of a possession receiver and should be a late-round selection.

Jarett Dillard - Dillard is a talented wideout, but there are questions about the level of competition he played against.
