Round 6: Texans select FB Jay Prosch of Auburn


With their third sixth-round selection of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans have selected Jay Prosch, a fullback from Auburn.

Prosch was the 211th overall selection, as this was an compensatory selection.

Prosch (6-1, 256 pounds) is described in his draft profile as:

“Outstanding peripheral blocking vision — scans wide and locates. Generates power through his lower body and drives defenders out of the hole. Very good hip roll and explosion. Runs his feet on contact. Intense, determined competitor. Good finisher.”

He was projected as a seventh round projection or free agent. Prosch didn’t have a carry this past season.

One weakness about Prosch is he’s “robotic.”

The lone fullback on the Texans’ roster is Brad Smelley.

What could come from this pick is the Texans adding to their special teams depth. They didn’t have the best special teams play last season, so at least it seems they are focusing a little on that part f the team as well.
