3. Albert Huggins, defensive line
A former defensive lineman for the Clemson Tigers, Albert Huggins has the abilities to contribute to an NFL roster as he’s played against tough competition in the past at the collegiate level, plus he knows what is expected of playing in high-pressured situations as Clemson has been a high-profile program as of late.
In his final season with Clemson, Huggins played in 12 games on the defensive line, collecting 22 tackles, including 16 solo tackles, while adding 3.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. Even though he was in a rotation at Clemson, that works out well for him with the Texans as he would certainly be a part of some sort of rotation for the Texans’ defensive line, which isn’t such a bad thing.
What would be great with Huggins making the roster for the Texans is he was described in the draft process as a “big, powerful block eater,” by Lance Zierlein of NFL.com. The Texans really need to do their due diligence on Huggins, and if he’s able to be a contributor to the Texans’ defensive line depth, the Texans could have two members of their undrafted rookie free agent class make the roster for the defensive line.
