Gonna watch Nathan Slaughter with some interest. A smallish 5'9" slot receiver type with 4.3 speed that can return kicks. Even with that 40 time, he's more quick than fast. Great decision signing with the Texans as they need this type of player to develop. Played lackluster college competition, but so did Jacoby Jones once upon a time (though obvi, two completely different body types).

Braman must've started something in the Texans scouting dept....

Which reminds me, have you seen West Texas A&M's QB? Dude's got skills. We should have got him.....

Found another shorter list of UDFA. Probably a few more changes.

I'm thinking the Kicker has a good chance to make the team.

Houston Texans
Nathan Slaughter WR West Texas A&M
Max Bullough LB Michigan State
Chris Boswell K Rice
Anthony Denham TE Utah
Travis Labhart WR Texas A&M
Matt Feiler OT Bloomsburg
Austin Brown DT Miami
Marcus Williams CB North Dakota State
Jason Ankrah DE Nebraska
Theo Alexander S SE Louisiana
Julius Warmsley DT Tulane
Chris Coyle TE Arizona State
Ty Ezell DL Pittsburgh (tryout)

I'm surprised there are no RB's on the list. Even with drafting "you're my boy" Blue, we have very little depth behind a very questionable Foster. Crowell would've been an ideal UDFA signing, IMO, but he signed with the Browns (well, at least verbally according to Twitter feed). We'll see how it plays out in a few months, I suppose.

Anyone know where Jeffcoat has signed?

It applies throughout the offseason until the first preseason cutdown. Some of those guys probably aren't signed but will participate in the rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

The Texans picked up a UDFA for DL

Tim Jackson At 6-4 290 lbs., fits into the type of personnel the team wants at defensive end.

He signed his contract prior to starting his first day with the Texans today at mini camp.
