Lamar cornerback Brendan Langley worked out for the Houston Texans, per report
The Houston Texans continue to look to add depth at the cornerback position.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that Lamar University cornerback Brendan Langley worked out for the Houston Texans.
Langley played at the University of Georgia before transferring to Lamar after losing his starting job with the Bulldogs during his freshman year.
The 6-foot, 201 pound Langley ran a 4.43 second 40-year dash.
Langley is an exciting player that picked off six passes and broke up another seven during his final collegiate season. He also scored twice on punt returns.
Langley has a lot of upside and isn’t regarded as a player that can come in right away and start for an NFL team.

Langley’s draft profile from NFL.com reads:
"Langley is a “size-speed” prospect who could be taken much earlier than his Senior Bowl tape might dictate. Langley displays issues with his mirror and match footwork from press coverage and might be better suited in off-man or zone coverage where he can read quarterbacks and utilize his ball skills with the play in front of him. Langley has NFL backup potential."
The good news for the Texans is that even though they lost A.J. Bouye in free agency, they don’t need to find a player in the draft that can start right away because they already have Kevin Johnson. So Langley could be an option in the mid to late rounds.
When it comes to Langley it sounds like the worst case scenario is that he’ll be good enough to serve as a back up corner as well as a special teams player if he doesn’t reach his potential.
