Who are some small school players in the 2019 NFL Draft the Houston Texans could be focusing on this offseason?
Darius Leonard, Tarik Cohen, Anthony Miller and Kareem Hunt are just a few players out of many drafted in the past two years to make an immediate impact in the NFL via the NFL Draft. Will the Houston Texans draft a large school player or look to the small schools to improve their roster in 2019?
In the 2019 NFL Draft there is a whole new group of players that might not have played in the biggest conferences, markets or schools like the four aforementioned, but these players deserve the same recognition of those from the SEC or Big 12 and the other Power 5 conferences.
The Houston Texans will certainly be looking for those players that aren’t scouted as highly as others as they have more than a few spots on their roster that need additions, either in the starting lineup or in a reserve role.
The NFL Combine, starting Feb. 26, is a perfect opportunity to add to the offseason process, and for players to prove to scouts they have the talent to catch the NFL off-guard, and even surprise a few folks along the way.
If you hadn’t heard yet, the Texans will make upgrading their offensive line and defensive back depth charts a priority, so those positions will not only be featured in this article, but in most ones leading up to the NFL Draft. The Texans could also use a shot in the arm at running back and tight end too, while also needing more depth at outside receiver.
Therefore, the upcoming NFL Combine invitees list revolve around those priorities and here are some players to keep an eye on as the draft process continues for the 2019 NFL offseason.
