The Houston Texans bolstered their offensive line by taking Kyle Fuller.
After grabbing an offensive tackle in the fourth round of this year’s NFL draft, the Texans added another lineman to close things out.
The Texans used their seventh round pick on Baylor center Kyle Fuller.
Fuller comes in at 6-foot-5, 307 pounds, which is obviously great size for an interior offensive lineman.
Not only does Fuller have great size, but his 34 inch arms are a huge plus with his ability to fend off defensive tackles.
Fuller isn’t very athletic, struggles with combination blocks and doesn’t move very well.
Here’s Fuller’s NFL.com draft profile:
"Below-average athleticism and body control hinder his effectiveness, but he has the physical traits that teams will likely look to mold. Has enough anchor that he can neutralize at the point of attack, but he probably won’t be much of a block winner in the future. He won’t fit in schemes that require plus athleticism from the center, but it’s conceivable he could become an eventual starter based on his attributes."

With Nick Martin penciled in as the Texans starting center, Fuller gives the Texans depth. I could also see him developing him into a possible starting offensive guard down the road if he’s not able to play center.
