3. Vyncint Smith is still in the WR mix
Last season, the Houston Texans signed Vyncint Smith as an undrafted rookie free agent, and he not only made the team, but the Texans saw him play in seven games and even make a start as the franchise battled with injuries at the position.
In his games played, Smith totaled five receptions on 10 targets for 91 yards, and he even scored a touchdown. Smith averaged 18.2 yards per reception, as his longest reception went for 35 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles. Smith last season had one reception against the New York Giants for 28 yards, and he caught three passes for 28 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Now as for this upcoming season, maybe Smith showed enough last season to be in the mix as one of the outside receivers, as Houston drafted no wide receivers, and in signing undrafted rookie free agents they signed Johnnie Dixon (Ohio State), Tyron Johnson (Oklahoma State) and Stephen Louis (North Carolina State), so that could be his biggest competition.
Granted, Smith does have a tough road ahead in making the roster for a second straight year, but the Texans believed in him enough to not draft any more wide receivers, and most likely he’ll have to beat out the aforementioned wide receivers to keep his spot on the roster.
