2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Ryan Langford

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

The Rundown

The New Mexico product arrived to the Texans as a rookie free agent and turned his tryout during rookie mini-camp into a contract when it was all over. Playing inside linebacker, Ryan Langford had 53 total tackles with 7.5 tackles for loss and 2 sacks at UNM. He showed versatility to play inside or on the edge of that defense, which gives the Texans some options on where to work him when OTAs arrive. 


Langford, like many rookies, just has to put together solid tape and work ethic to stay in the coaches' minds. The Texans inside linebacker position has plenty of youth in it but the team always looks to keep depth on the practice squad just in case. Langford can take the track of finding a spot on the practice squad and work that into something bigger for the future.
