Bill O’Brien’s hand picked fullback, Jay Prosch has been a staple in the Texans offense. The past two seasons, the offense has depended on Prosch to clear the way offensively. That has been a up and down experience for the team as well as Prosch. A broken hand slowed him his rookie season and he progressed some in year two, but there is plenty of room for him to become a better lead blocker.
It will be Jay Prosch’s job to lose but he has to become a better lead blocker than what he has been the past two seasons. He has to start winning at the point of attack and getting under linebackers to move them out of the way. The NFL is changing and the use of a fullback is becoming scarce. Prosch is going to have to prove that his time is not up in Houston and that the team needs a fullback in today's league.
He is the favorite to land the fullback spot on the 53-man roster but rookie Soma Vainuku will challenge him.
