Hjalte Froholdt, G/C, Arkansas
The Houston Texans needed offensive line help badly after allowing Watson to get sacked 62 times and hit 133 times. They began to address this with exterior guys like Howard and Scharping but they should look to add one more guy along the line to ensure they field the best possible five.
Hjalte Froholdt, a Denmark native, started his career at Arkansas as a defensive lineman in 2015 before shifting to the offensive side of the trenches in 2016. He then started 13 games at left guard in 2016 and never looked back as an offensive line prospect, playing games at both guard spots and center throughout the rest of his career.
Froholdt’s future may be at center in the NFL to capitalize on his athleticism and his lack of elite play strength. He sees the field with great vision and can read defenses and stunts well. He obviously needs some more work as a lineman since he’s only done it for three years with only five years of football experience but he has potential to be good swing backup this year and a starter down the road.
Martez Ivey, G/T, Florida
Martez Ivey is another guy the Houston Texans could target for depth later in the draft. He’s a former five-star recruit who never lived up to the billing but the peripherals are still there from what made him a five-star recruit. He moved to guard to better maximize his skill set and showed some promise there at Florida. His potential versatility as a four spot player could make him attractive to Baine.
