The Houston Texans have completed all of their picks for the 2016 NFL Draft by selecting Will Fuller (1st round), Nick Martin (2nd round), Braxton Miller (3rd round), Tyler Erwin (4th round), K.J. Dillon (5th round) and D.J. Reader (5th round).
Now that’s all done, the Texans are wasting no time in signing some undrafted free agents (UDFAs) to help fill the roster.
These guys are important because you never know what you may find in this crop of talent.
One may see them as unwanted talent but the Texans see them as a gold mine.
The team may find that nugget that will take them to the next level.
