The Texans need more depth at linebacker, so let’s go back to the Big Ten and take a closer look at Micah McFadden of Indiana. While at IU in ’21, he had 49 solo tackles, 6.5 sacks and one forced fumble. McFadden played four years for the Hoosiers, collecting 14 total sacks in his final three seasons.
Danny Gray could be a surprise at wide receiver in the sixth round. Gray had 82 receptions in two combined seasons at SMU, totaling 1,251 yards and 13 touchdowns in a total of 18 games. The wide receiver stands at 6’1″ and has very good speed, as he can play on the outside. Speed is important when it comes to scouting Gray.
This would be a pick for more depth at cornerback and the secondary, plus to stay on the roster his role in the special teams would be important. Special teams needs to keep improving for the Texans next season.
This is a long-shot pick as well, but it is fun to end the draft with a pick that could be the biggest surprise of all. The Texans need to look everywhere possible to add depth at cornerback, so why not look at D’Jordan Strong and give him a shot?
With this pick being around No. 245 (it was originally a Dallas Cowboys pick), taking a flier on the Coastal Carolina cornerback isn’t such a bad idea at this point of the 2022 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
