If there is one spot that is jam-packed full of players capable of making an NFL roster is it the depth chart of the Houston Texans wide receivers. They have at least six players who are easily capable of making the roster this season, but that doesn’t even count a couple familiar names or fifth-round pick Isaiah Coulter.

One way or another, whether it be on the 55-man game day roster (teams get two extra players this season) or on the practice squad, the Texans need to make sure their fifth-round pick is in the building for the 2020 season.

That said, Coulter could have really used a preseason because of the fact he played at a small school in college (Rhode Island), and the snaps gained in the preseason and playing in in-game situations can’t be had in a training camp scrimmage.

In 34 games with Rhode Island, Coulter finished his collegiate career with 132 receptions (1,855 yards) and 12 touchdowns.

It is understandable why there will be no preseason games this year, and it was the right move, but having to compete in an already crowded depth chart at wide receiver, Coulter isn’t getting any favors by not having preseason games in his journey to make the Texans roster.
