2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Terrance Mitchell

A closer look at the Houston Texans roster heading into the 2016 training camp.

The Rundown

Claimed by the Texans after being released by the Dallas Cowboys, Terrance Mitchell put enough on film last season to feel good about what he can do on the field. One of the few bright spots on the Cowboys secondary in 2015, Mitchell has enough speed to play at cornerback in a pinch. Before being released by the Cowboys he was getting work at safety in the off-season. 


With the top four cornerbacks set, Mitchell finds himself in a good position to make the roster at cornerback. Add in the fact that he has some experience at safety, and that could prove vital when the roster starts to be set. Mitchell has decent speed for the position and enough size to play outside against bigger receivers. 

Roster Situation 

Looks to have a realistic shot at the 53-man roster.
