LSU is always loaded with talent which why the Houston Texans were one of several NFL teams to attend their pro day.
The Houston Texans were in attendance at LSU’s pro day on Wednesday, according to Jeff Risdon of Texans Wire.
One player that could certainly help the Texans right away is LSU safety Jamal Adams. The problem is that he’s expected to be taken way before Houston is on the clock.
The good news is that the Texans may have a chance to replace A.J. Bouye after he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason.
LSU cornerback Tre’Davious White will likely be on the board when the Texans are picking at 25. But do they really want to use a first round pick on a cornerback? Probably not since this year’s class is so deep and they already have Kevin Johnson.

Another LSU player that can help the Texans is linebacker Duke Riley.
Riley is a little undersized at 230 pounds and is someone Houston could end up getting late in the draft. But he’s nothing more than a project at the next level.
Here’s what Riley’s NFL.com draft profile says:
"One-year wonder who produced at a consistent level despite his average athleticism and lack of starting experience. While he’s mindful of his responsibilities, he’s not overly physical and his limitations could tie him to roles as either a WILB in a 3-4 or WILL in a 4-3. Could improve stock in pre-draft workouts, but would be surprising to see him taken inside of the first three rounds."
Other LSU players that wouldn’t be bad options for the Texans are defensive tackles Davon Godchaux and Colin Jeter, who could both be taken on day three of the draft.
