3. Anthony Sherman, FB, Kansas City Chiefs
What? A fullback? Yes. A fullback.
For a team with as many issues with their offensive line as the Houston Texans, adding one of the best lead blocking and versatile fullbacks in the NFL could pay dividends. After all, the 30-year old Anthony Sherman played a crucial role in the Kansas City Chiefs historical 2018 offense by doing just that.
Fortunately for teams desperate for fullbacks, he has likely played his last snaps in Kansas City as the Chiefs found a younger replacement in Aaron Ripkowski.
In 2018, Sherman finished with a 79.4 Pro Football Focus grade and compiled enough stats, glory, and fame to earn himself an AFC Pro Bowl nod. He finished the year with 98 scrimmage yards and a touchdown. However, his value isn’t in the stats, instead, it’s in his blocking and versatility and any blocking is a good thing for the Texans offense.
Although it is unlikely the Texans add a fullback (they cut one of the leagues best in Jay Prosch before the 2018 season), adding Sherman to a presumably cheap price tag could help the Texans offensive line run down the throats of defenses everywhere.
Maybe the Texans will learn from their mistakes last year and sign a top quality fullback who could help with pass protection and run blocking too.
