The Houston Texans are very busy working out NFL draft prospects.
With the 2017 NFL draft right around the corner, the Texans continue to line up visits with prospects.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that the Texans will be working out Utah cornerback Brian Allen.
Allen is a 6-foot-2 cornerback, which is very rare. It might be a good idea for him to move to safety at the next level. Which could be why the Texans are showing interest.
As of right now there’s probably a good chance Allen could go undrafted.
Here’s what Allen’s NFL.com draft profile says:
"On the surface, Allen is nowhere near ready to play NFL football. He lacks smooth feet and hips in coverage, a feel for routes and is below average playing the deep ball. His issues as a tackler make it unlikely a team would trust him to move to safety. However, his elite size, speed and length are sure to garner attention and he does flash some potential as a bump-and-run corner. Allen could be a late-round pick who is stashed on a practice squad while a team tries to improve his technique."
The Texans are also going to be working out Alabama linebacker Ryan Anderson, as well, according to Wilson.
The 6-foot-2 Anderson is currently projected to go in the third round and is compared to San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks.
Anderson recorded 61 tackles, one interception and nine sacks during his final season at Alabama.

The Texans worked out university of Texas running back D’Onta Foreman on Saturday as a part of their local workouts.
Foreman rushed for 2,028 yards and 15 touchdowns during his final season with the Longhorns.
The Texans have also requested to work out Stephen F. Austin quarterback, turned tight end Zach Conque, according to Damond Talbot NFL Draft Diamonds.
Conque is an intriguing prospect that stands at 6-feet-6. He threw for 6,867 yards, 46 touchdowns and 24 interceptions during his college career. But will be changing positions at the next level.
Conque might be able to make the conversion to tight end after showing off his speed by running a 4.55 forty yard dash.
