UCLA's Caleb Benenoch To Visit the Houston Texans

Apr. 6 -- UCLA offensive tackle Caleb Benenoch is set to visit the Houston Texans before the start of the NFL Draft...

The Houston Texans are set to host offensive tackle from UCLA, Caleb Benenoch. Benenoch played primarily right tackle for the Bruins but in 2015 played a handful of games a guard. 

http://www.scout.com/nfl/texans/story/1656990-houston-texans-2016-prospe... Benenoch is originally from Katy, Texas and played his high school football at Seven Lakes. At 6-5 and 305 lbs., Benenoch is considered an athletic player especially after he ran a sub-5.0 forty-yard dash (4.98) at the NFL Combine. 

Starting as a true freshman for the Bruins, Benenoch started nine games at right tackle and was named Rookie of the Year in 2013. In 2014, he started 13 games at right tackle and 13 games in 2015 with nine coming at right tackle and four at guard. Benenoch was named honorable mention all-conference and was the team leader with 35 consecutive starts. 

There will be work needed to be done by teams to figure out whether Benenoch is a guard or offensive tackle at the NFL level. His versatility could make him an attractive fit for the Texans.
