Two quarterbacks chosen highlight the Houston Texans’ Day 3 selections
Jack Coan was supposed to be the savior of the quarterback position at Wisconsin, and it’s safe to say that didn’t happen. Ever since transferring to Notre Dame, Coan has looked just like that said savior. Was it mismanagement of Coan at UW under Badgers Head Coach Paul Chryst? It’s an intriguing pick early in day 3 of the draft for Houston. Coan could compete for the backup spot next to Davis Mills.
Addressing the running back position will primarily be done in free agency, hence why the long wait to select one in the draft. CJ Verdell has the patience to find holes in the trenches and once he sees daylight, the turbos are on and it’s good luck to defenders who try to lay chase.
The Junior out of small-town Grantsburg, Wisconsin is having a breakout season, including a 3.5 sack day against Purdue, and a 17-tackle performance in the nail-biter win over Army. Chenal possesses Good ball recognition and open-field tackling skills.
Yes, this is another quarterback. However, Eric Barriere may be the biggest sleeper candidate at the quarterback position in the draft. A current candidate for the Big Sky player of the year award, and currently has 93 touchdowns and over 10,000 yards passing as of this writing. Don’t be surprised if he makes the final 53-man roster.
Keep checking the internet for his highlight videos, as he leads one of the most explosive offenses in the FCS.
Look, there is nothing worse than not having a long snapper when you desperately need one. Jon Weeks has been with the Texans for years. It may be time to look at a replacement. Special teams still matter, despite the NFL’s effort to eliminate them from the game.
