Running Back, West Virginia

With Ben Tate gone and Arian Foster recovering from numerous injuries this offseason, including back surgery, the Texans really need to think about a “Plan B” at running back. Sims in the fourth round could be a good value.

Sims has nice size at 6-0, 214, plus he’s been timed with a 4.54 40-yard dash. He’s also played college football at Houston before transferring to WVU his final season.

His CBS Draft bio says:

"“His size belies impressive quickness and acceleration, making him a tough target for would-be tacklers. Presses the hole before making decisive cuts with a strong plant foot to burst through the crease.”"
