Brad Kaaya is someone the Houston Texans could start on day three of the draft.
The Texans met with two of the top quarterbacks in DeShaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes earlier in the week.
Now Houston is visiting with a possible sleeper in this year’s draft.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Wednesday that University of Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya is visiting with the Texans.
Kaaya is a talented player that some people believe could be a steal in the the mid to late rounds.

If the chips don’t fall the way the Texans would like them to when it comes to taking a quarterback in next week’s draft, they could end up getting Kaaya on day three.
Kaaya’s NFL.com draft profile reads:
"Groomed to be a quarterback from an early age, Kaaya flashes the mechanics and intelligence of a player who has spent hours in quarterback camps. However, he can be too mechanical and thinks too much rather than just flowing and responding to what the field offers him. Kaaya could have used another year of college, but he has the tools and intangibles to become an NFL starter. While he can work around his average arm strength, he must improve his accuracy and anticipation if he is to make a mark in the NFL."
The bottom line is that whether the Texans were to draft someone like Mahomes or someone like Kaaya, both players are going to have to sit and learn from the bench.
One thing that really helps Kaaya is that he’s familiar with a pro-style offense and is comfortable under center rather than only in a spread offense.
