1. Will Tyron Johnson stand out when he’s on the field?
Who knows how many plays undrafted rookie wide receiver Tyron Johnson will receive in this second preseason game, but from recent reports, he could be making a name for himself in practice as of late.
In his first preseason game, Johnson had two receptions for 48 yards, with one of them going for 44 yards.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle quoted wide receivers coach John Perry following a recent practice about Johnson’s play this training camp:
"“He’s trying to learn the offense, trying to learn the subtleties of good route running and things like that and understanding coverages. But moving forward, he’s dangerous with his speed …”"
Seeing more opportunities for the undrafted Johnson should be easy enough for the remainder of the preseason. Maybe with his speed, Johnson can not only make plays on offense, but what about special teams in the return game?
Johnson needs to do everything possible to make himself needed by the Texans to stay on the roster once final cuts are made. For any team, it would be tough to overlook all the speed he possesses, but it is up to Johnson to show his skill set as well and not be known as a player who is only fast.
