The Houston Texans have met with former Cal quarterback, Jared Goff, in a formal interview, according to ESPN’s Tania Ganguli. The meeting with Goff was one of the sixty interviews allowed at the NFL Combine for the Texans to use for closed door interviews of prospects.
Goff started all 37 games over a three year span for the Golden Bears. He holds 26 school records, including passing yards, touchdowns, completions, and total offense. The two-time captain finished with first team All Pac 12 honors, the first quarterback since Aaron Rodgers to accomplish the feat.
Goff feels he has something to prove heading to the NFL Draft. “I always want to go out there with something to prove,” explained Goff. “I always have a chip on my shoulder and I always want to go out there and prove people wrong, prove people right, whatever it is. I just go out there and try to do my best. By no means am I complacent at all”
There are some small concerns with Goff’s hand size, which only measures 9 inches, but that does not concern the signal caller.
“I’ve been told I have pretty big hands my whole life,” explained Goff. “I heard I have small hands yesterday apparently. Naw, I've never had a problem with that or expect it to be a problem at all.”
Goff is in consideration for being the top quarterback of the 2016 draft class.
