Houston Texans: 4 undrafted free agents who could earn roster spot
1. Tyron Johnson, wide receiver
An exciting player for fans of the Houston Texans to keep an eye on is Tyron Johnson, a wide receiver who played for the Oklahoma State Cowboys and even the LSU Tigers for a short time.
Most of his collegiate time was spent with Oklahoma State, and in 2018, Johnson totaled a career-best 53 receptions for 845 yards and seven touchdowns.
Johnson played three seasons of college football, collecting 12 touchdowns, 80 receptions and 1,288 yards. Johnson also averaged 16.1 yards per reception this past season. Also, during his Pro Day, Johnson raced to a 40-yard dash time of 4.34.
Houston could use another wide receiver within their depth as injuries last year really hurt the Texans in the latter stages of the season with Keke Coutee battling hamstring issues throughout the season, Will Fuller tearing his ACL and Demaryius Thomas rupturing his Achilles after being traded for to replace Fuller in the starting lineup.
There will be a lot of work ahead for Johnson if he wants to make the roster, but the Texans have been known to take chances on wide receivers before who were undrafted in the past.
With his abilities to stretch the field for his team, maybe Johnson earns a roster spot while also refining his other receiver skills.
