Default UDFA's 2016

Rumors and facts....

Radio saying (unofficially) Texans have signed 3 already:

1. Steven Anderson TE from Cal
2. Richard Malaney (sp?) WR from Alabama
3. Eric Lee (?) DE/LB South Florida

Can't understand the names too well from the radio......

I hope they look to sign three or four more receivers just so Bob will be happy.

Three wide receivers. Twenty percent of the players. That seems like a solid start. But Bob's right, let's sign Travis Labhart just to be safe.

Maybe we can even get Charles James some snaps out there.

UDFAs
WR Keyarris Garrett Tulsa Carolina
LBO James Cowser Oakland
TE Ben Braunecker Harvard Chicago
S Tyvis Powell Ohio St Seattle
RB Tre Madden USC Seattle
CB Jonathan Jones Auburn
LBO Victor Ochi Stony Brook Baltimore
RB Aaron Green TCU Los Angeles
WR Jay Lee Baylor Detroit
WR Paul McRoberts SE Missouri St Los Angeles
TE Henry Krieger Coble Iowa Denver

So, it looks like Jonathan Jones is still available. Just saying a Nickel CB to compete in camp.

Jones was the fastest corner at the combine so he fits the motif of the Texans' draft. Surprised he wasn't drafted which makes you wonder how awful he might be with other parts of his game if you can be the fastest corner at the combine and still have not one of 32 GMs interested in you.

I watched him at the Senior Bowl and he was able to cover larger WRs like Braxton Miller.

Texans just signed UDFA Ra'shan Howard. He was not selected in supplemental draft, and left Purdue early as a junior due to low grades.

Sounds like strong, run stopper DT, at 6'2" and 325 lbs.

And rookies report training camp in 10 days.

Texans starting trimming the 90 man roster down to 78 today. So three more by 3 pm cst tomorrow.

I guess a few of these will get picked up by others or perhaps on Texans practice squad.

Then there is a question if Texans will pick up a center from another team?

I was shocked to see Jace Amaro on the cut list of the Jets but it looked like the Titans scooped him up.
