Chandler Worthy, Wide Receiver, 5’9″, 173 Pounds, 21 Years Old
Ok, so this one obviously has nothing to do with size, as undrafted rookie Chandler Worthy is one of the smaller players on the roster. Also, there is no way this receiver beats out DeAndre Hopkins, Jaelen Strong, Cecil Shorts III or Nate Washington.
Where Worthy can make an impact for Houston is in the return game, where the Texans were atrocious in 2014. Worthy has a shot to unseat Keshawn Martin, Damaris Johnson and Chris Polk as the top returners currently on the roster.
For his career he averaged 23.7 return yards per game and his final year saw him net 704 yards and two touchdowns on kick returns.
With an average of 98.9 all-purpose yards and nearly 4,000 total all-purpose yards in his four seasons, Worthy shows his versatility is much larger than his size. If given a real opportunity, he has a shot to be the guy to help turn this porous return game back around.
