The Houston Texans continue to work on finding potential matches for their team moving forward and, at the Senior Bowl, they continue to look at prospects closer. The Texans met with one of the top tight ends in the draft, Alabama’s O.J. Howard
Howard was selected as an All-American and received All-SEC honors for a strong senior season for the Crimson Tide. He finished the 2016 season with 45 receptions for 595 yards and 3 touchdowns but his arrow is pointing up with a skill set ready for the NFL level.
In the national championship game against Clemson, Howard had 4 receptions for 106 yards and a touchdown. A natural matchup challenge due to his pass catching abilities, Howard is considered a first round prospect.
With the Texans potentially looking for another tight end as Ryan Griffin is set to be an unrestricted free agent, the Texans have been busy this draft season checking on the position group, including a top end player like O.J. Howard.
