Notre Dame's C.J. Prosise Visits the Houston Texans

Notre Dame running back C.J. Prosise visited the Houston Texans.

The Houston Texans hosted former Notre Dame running back, C.J. Prosise, before the NFL Draft. Prosise is considered one of the more versatile backs coming out this year due to his ability to catch and run the football. The former wide receiver switched to running back his senior year, putting him on NFL teams' radar for this draft because of his skill set. 

At Notre Dame, Prosise led the Irish in special teams tackles in 2014 and was named Notre Dame's special teams player of the year. Also that season, he caught 29 passes for 516 yards and two touchdowns, plus he led all the team in 17.8 yards a reception. 

Making the switch to running back, Prosise played in 11 games with 9 starts, rushing for 1,110 yards (6.6 yards a carry) and 11 touchdowns. He also chipped in with 26 catches for 308 yards and 1 touchdown, making him one of the Irish’s best offensive threats in 2015. 

With the Texans looking to get younger on offense and find potential playmakers, Prosise fits the Texans model of versatility with his ability to run, catch, return, and play special teams.
