The Houston Texans signed many undrafted free agents on Saturday. Not all are expected to be the next Arian Foster, but it looks like the Texans may have found a few good steals.
The list is kicked off (no pun intended) with Rice kicker Chris Boswell. Some believe Boswell had the strongest leg and in the draft. He’s expected to push Randy Bullock in training camp, and will make for good competition.
The Texans lack major depth on the defensive line and they went out and signed several different lineman. Sullivan Grosz from Cal Poly State, Tyrone Ezell from Pitt, Leon Minto from Johnson C. Smith, and Austin Brown from Miami of Ohio will have a decent shot at making the team’s roster. DE’s Jason Ankrah from Nebraska and Cory Henry from Florida Atlantic also agreed to deals.
On offense the Texans signed several receivers including Texas A&M’s Travis Labhart, Nathan Slaughter from West Texas A&M, Lacoltan Bester from Oklahoma, and Cincinnati’s Anthony McClung.
Because the Texans can’t have enough tight ends, they also brought in Anthony Dehnam from Utah and Chris Coyle from Arizona State.
On the offensive line they added OG Kevin Forsch from Houston, OT Bryan Witzmann from South Dakota State, OT Chris Martin from Central Florida, OT Matt Feiler from Bloomsburgh, and C Kjleby Oiland from Montana.
The Texans also reached deals with several outside linebackers including Baylor’s Chris McAlister and Terrance Lloyd. The Texans also signed inside linebackers Chris Young from Arizona State and Max Bullough from Michigan State.
In the secondary, the Texans signed Theo Alexander of SLU and North Dakota State cornerback Marcus Williams.
