The Houston Texans continue their search for a new right tackle.

With the 2017 NFL draft almost a month away, the Houston Texans are on the hunt as they look to upgrade their offensive line.

The Texans worked out Villanova offensive tackle Brad Seaton on Friday, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Seaton is a monster at 6’8″, 330 pounds. He’s considered a mid-round pick that’s slotted as a right tackle in the NFL.

The thing that makes Seaton great is his size as well as his skills as a blocker.

Seaton met with the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs, Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears after participating in the College Gridiron Classic back in January.

"“It was awesome,” Seaton said, via the National Football Post. “It was a great experience for me. I’m glad I went. I think I showed how athletic I am, how dominant I can be. I have strong technique, a good feel for the game. I can take good angles. I’m big enough to play with a lot of momentum and athletic enough to move.”"

Seaton certainly has the body and some of the skills to play at the next level.  Many people will of course question whether he can get the job done in the NFL because of the fact that he played his college ball at a small school like Villanova.

Seaton wouldn’t be a bad player to take in the mid rounds, but the only problem is that he would likely not be ready to start right away as a rookie. He’s going to need some time to develop.
