Houston Texans: 4 undrafted free agents who could earn roster spot
The Houston Texans signed 20 players following the 2019 NFL Draft, but which players can make the 53-man roster in 2019?
There are only so many spots to go around for an NFL team because only 53 players earn the honor to join the Houston Texans or any other roster in the NFL for a given week, so making the roster is a very tough obstacle to achieve.
That said, think about how much tougher the road is for a player who went undrafted, and how much tougher the goal of making a roster is. That is now what many players for the Texans are trying to do this offseason, as the class of 2019 undrafted free agents will do whatever they can to earn their roster spot.

Some of these players might become members of the practice and eventually work their way to the 53-man roster, while others could become full-fledged members of the roster from Week 1. Some of these players could become household names as former top stars in the league have gone from being undrafted signings to superstars in the league. Even the Texans hit the lottery once with an undrafted running back named Arian Foster, who worked his way to a very successful career.
Now for the current group of players the Texans have signed this offseason whom they want to take a closer look at, some are former national champion players, some are players who played in the Big 5 conferences of college football and others are from smaller schools, but are still able to make an impact if all goes their way.
The Texans not only need to build depth on their roster in 2019, but they need to build quality depth because injuries will occur during an NFL season, and that means some of the undrafted rookie free agents will be called upon if they are able to make the roster.
Listed next are four undrafted free agent signings who could earn a spot on the 2019 53-man roster of the Texans. The path won’t be easy and the odds are against them, which makes any potential success even that much greater for them and the Texans.
