The Houston Texans have met with offensive lineman from Western Michigan Taylor Moton at the NFL Combine. Moton is considered as an offensive tackle to many but have the versatitliy to play offensive guard if needed. This meeting comes as little surprise especially the interest the Texans showed to Moton in Mobile, Alabama.
Moton met with the media on Thursday and discussed his experiences at the NFL Combine.
“Just about every team I’ve talked to, I’ve talked to every team, Miami’s not excluded from that that said they love versatile guys." Moton said of his interviews. "Some teams look at me more as a guard, some teams look at me more as a tackle. I tell them I can do both. I’ll do whatever position you need me to be."
"Wherever I go, I know I’ll go in there and fight for a starting job right away.” Moton continued.
The Texans met with Moton at the Reese's Senior Bowl and had a follow up meeting with him at the NFL Combine.
“Absolutely. Some teams I met at the Senior Bowl, some at the Senior bowl and combine. Yeah, I talked to Houston, absolutely.” said Moton of meeting a team again.
Moton was part of the Western Michigan team in 2016 that finished 12-1, the school’s best record in team history, and the powerful offensive lineman contributed to the rise of the program. Moton played both right guard and right tackle for the Broncos giving him some versatility for teams to consider. Checking in at 6'5" and 330 lbs., Moton was a four-year starter and appeared in all 51 games for the Broncos.
