Texans' Treston Decoud: Landing in Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans selected Decoud in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 169th overall.

In terms of size, Decoud checks all the boxes. He stands in at 6-foot-2, 206 pounds with long arms. Athletically, Decoud is a bit limited. It's also fair to wonder about his ball skills as he had just two interceptions in two seasons at Oregon State. Still, Decoud has the frame and toughness to cause problems at the line for opposing receivers, but Houston would likely need a high safety behind him to help in coverage.

Texans' Carlos Watkins: Lands in Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans selected Watkins in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 142nd overall.

Watkins was a key member of Clemson's national title run, racking up three tackles for loss from the defensive interior in the College Football Playoff. He also showed an ability to get to the quarterback with 10.5 sacks in his final season at Clemson. Watkins will be a solid addition along the Texans' defensive line, but it will be difficult for him to replicate that same pass rush production at the next level.

Texans' Julie'n Davenport: Headed to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans selected Davenport in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 130th overall.

Davenport is a bit of a project coming out of Bucknell, but he has ideal size for a tackle at 6-foot-7 and 318 pounds and could really develop if he adds some bulk. He has the length to match his height, checking in with 36.5 inch arms. It may take some time before he carves out a spot on Houston's starting line, but Davenport is an intriguing tackle prospect nonetheless.

Texans' Zach Cunningham: Can play both inside and outside
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham is seen as a versatile linebacker that can play both inside and outside, according to Houston head coach Bill O'Brien, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "Versatility is key for us. Zach was a very productive tackler at Vanderbilt," said O'Brien.

Cunningham sees himself as an inside linebacker but he'll need to get bigger to man that spot in the NFL. O'Brien feels he can play on special teams immediately and serve as depth at inside linebacker where he can be groomed by veteran Brian Cushing for an eventual starting job alongside Bernardrick McKinney. Athleticism is Cunningham's greatest asset. He covers ground, is adept at pursuing, and could probably step in right away as a third-down backer.

Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Possible No. 2 back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foreman is seen as someone who can spell starter Lamar Miller, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Miller lugged the ball a career-high 268 times in 2016, a workload that took its toll on Houston's lead running back. Cognizant of that, head coach Bill O'Brien plans to monitor his workload and incorporate a second back more often. Thus, the Texans selected Foreman out the University of Texas in the third round (89th overall) to be part of the backup running back mix. He's a big back who was a productive inside runner for the Longhorns and is seen as a first- and second-down back. His selection is not a good sign for either Alfred Blue or Kenny Hilliard.
